i look back and think about the longer deeper history of what housings meant in the united states. not just that old question of the american dream, but the bigger question of who the dream has been for the more than 100. 1300 injured. the tragic off tomorrow of a terror attack, the ship called full white crowds of people. both africans on foreigners, were crammed together, waiting to be waited from the country corresponded report from the city were searches and raids carried out throughout the city. over the course of the terror threats at the airport is still hot. on islamic state, affiliate in afghanistan,

known as ice cave, says it carried out the bombing experts repealed twice more about the group. this group actually is a direct byproduct of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. they didn't know there were such drugs. why were you lingering in the removal of those knowing that you were about to leave behind an incredible amount of weaponry. didn't an emotional televised address president via invited to continue with the occupation plans and to track down those are responsible for the atrocity we will not forgive. we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay. ah,
7:02 am
hello. unwell can we live from much goes monte international wild youth center with good to happy with. well, getting started, afghanistan is still reeling from a devastating bomb attack in the capital of the now town. upon run country, 2 explosions rocked the international airport. the current at the center of west and q ation assets. more than $100.00 people were killed, including american military personnel. just a warning there is some graphic footage a heads. one of the bloss happened out an entrance to the airport where afghans were waiting in line to be processed to fly out. bodies were thrown into a sewer drain located nearby and explosive bachelor said to have been used in one of the attacks. another block shook an area around the hotel. what british officials were processing f downs to fly to the u. k. soul to say more than 1003300 people were injured in the explosions. so a teen us service members were among the tad along with $2800.00 bond members.
7:03 am
the well, this is footage apparently taken, following one of the explosions that was sent to us by witness between the 2 block shots were also reported on site that was unclear who fired them. i'll tell you we're on gas. dave is in kabul and told us how the cities faring off to the attack . the situation so far this morning is somewhat garb of it. it was yesterday, but we kept hearing as many as half a dozen explosion. and this is after the 2 terrorist bomb bloss at the airport. some of them are explained by the trial a bad to, to the local population as, as control destination carried out by american servicemen destroying the assets, equipment that they don't want to leave behind. and that they can't evacuate, nevertheless, things that hasn't been the sort of shooting we had overnighted and the sirens that
7:04 am
we heard yesterday. but from what we understand, and this is, it has been confirmed to us by, by numerous sources that were such as and raids, carried out throughout the city over the course of tonight and this morning as well . those searches and grades are still ongoing, but tara, at the airport, is still high. you may have seen footage from the airport this morning. the crowds never went away. it's very difficult to describe just how many people there are at the airport now. how tightly packed together they are and how impossibilities to, to, to vet them, to sort of pat them all down before they get to the fence. before they get to the various check boards, thousands and thousands of people packed together screaming, jocelyn, shoving, trying to get into the airport, that hasn't changed. and nato countries as well as the taliban. all warning with the crowds must disperse for their own safety. those who carried out these,
7:05 am
these attacks, they saw the cottage that they caused, isis allegedly has claimed responsibility and the, the threat to ease. and the, the fear here is that they'll try again, which is why we're seeing the search is carried out. now these raids by the taliban sizes i allegedly coordinating with us forces, but as i said, the situation remains tense. not quite as bad as it was yesterday, but nevertheless far from calm. as i said, is lumnick state correson, which is a regional affiliate of isis, has claimed responsibility for the atrocity ahead of a blast. the u. k. u. s. and other western nations had been warning that nationals about the threat of a severe terror attack and advising them to avoid the airport. we spoke to ali hasanti who was near the apple when the fast explosion occurred to dave into the airport of cover. i was standing and if it was near to the get you
7:06 am
and they used to. so it's very close to us like 5 minutes away. i just saw there was like 4 to 5 minutes. they had us and they had told when there was looking look dash the c p will renew the duration problem, the difference of them, the type of this type of goods we're waiting. we're looking, we're suspicious. they didn't have guns. what they was looking for the airport, they was looking to be use troops, they will let 100 of them when they get back to the line, i was with the people like after 12 or 2 minutes. an explosion happened on the weekend. it was near it was near to the lake 1st things away. an accident happened . didn't go on 1st started year after the used to the called the people that stay away, stay away with the people that didn't move. that doesn't mean they are joking because they did distinct money times. they were always didn't get to the stairways. and then the u. s. news started tubing, gas, gas and smoke when the people 67 guess people,
7:07 am
the people who really need to get the injured. i saw there was like 5 to take form in danger. dear face was born and it was sitting there was going on the grounds. the i suspend to great behind thursdays, bombings has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan on launched a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded back in 2015. with more details on the group has all equal steinhoff the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the. the double strike right outside couple, airport killed dozens. american politicians had been warning, an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day were on the ground is another day. we know that ice case
7:08 am
seeking to target the airport attack, both us and allied forces and innocent civilians. as we conduct these operations, we are sustaining the highest level of vigilance for an attack against the airport by isis k or another terrorist group, or commanders on the ground have taken every step they can to prepare for such an attack. isis k is an afghan off shoot of the same tory as islam state terror group . it's based in correson. hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable the the
7:09 am
if you think this may have been isis case law strike at the exiting foreign troops before a happy union with the taliban? well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical enough. in the eyes of isis k, the islamic emory strongly condemns the bombing targeting civilians at cocoa airports. the explosion took place in an area where the us forces are responsible for security. the bottom line is isis k presents a massive security and reputational challenge for the taliban. given the taliban attempts to look more civil, humane and legitimate, we could conceivably soon see. i mean, strangers, it sounds
7:10 am
a taliban lead anti terrorist operation, or isis k might become the perfect pretext for the us to negotiate at least some presence in talib, uncontrolled of garrison. we did hear about this group, for example, and i believe, april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to drop the mother of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the non ga har province on ices k. but the roots of this group in its existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context. this group actually is a direct byproduct of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donnie taliban, who were disgruntled taliban members who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camped camp chapman, u. s. military base where they used
7:11 am
a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several. busy other attacks on american assets and this all lead to a rise of terrorism inside pockets on directly related to the u. s. presence and afghan. a stand 6 years ago. the pakistani taliban, which was widely suspected of being used by the african government, backed by the u. s, against pakistan turned into isis k central. it's the same thing as isis. so most viewers with no slumming state of iraq and syria, isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015 big swats of iraq and syria. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind specifically interact. that's where they really got their weapons from. they went into iraq, took those humvees and weapons and went back into syria. isis k, which is the islamic state of correson, which essentially means eastern. they don't like the taliban,
7:12 am
they're not friends with the taliban. they've been fighting the taliban. but more importantly, they'd been fighting the u. s. and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing and up dennis and left behind. unbelievable amounts of us military equipment, massive amounts of weaponry and guns black hawk helicopters from these. we left it all there the same way that we did in iraq. so we could be creating a very similar problem of what we saw. 20142015 with the other isis. and i c. k is far from being the only function able to carry out such attacks. and he starts the warning from the afghan national resistance front, which controls the punches valley. that's an area now seen as the center of the anti taliban opposition. it's foreign relations head believes the terror threat in the country right now is even stronger than 20 years ago. it could be, i says, cables. we think there are, there are other elements plan the attacks and that might have perpetrated such attacks against us soldiers and was
7:13 am
a terrorist attack on the watch of the taliban. a group that says we are able to provide security. and now in one day we see numerous terrorist attacks happening on the watch, unfortunate b international terrorism and get us on as much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of afghan on has been saying for the past year. we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat or national terrorism and in 1900 on the, to the international community, abandon the dentist, them. and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen in the international community, abandoned the canada into 2021. there's no pose threat towards everyone. no one is exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world, or kind of bonds, official representative mohammed named said they'd be warning about the potential
7:14 am
for this kind of attack. today's having a large congestion of people at cooper apple. it was a fatal mistake. there were tens of thousands who had gathered in the area, the presence of a foreign military contingent, both it's a huge problem. we have been repeatedly worn and about it, especially in recent times. we have been informed that part is concerned, and people arriving in that region about that we've been know to find them that any problem could occur there. if a similar situation happens in the area controlled by foreign contingent and there is a massive crowd of people, thousands of them including children, adults, and the young. anything can happen and we have nothing to do with this. well, the rush to leave on the answering panic was all to meet the august 31st withdrawal deadline, which was terrified and cool. however, he's now presiding over the deadliest stay for the u. s. military and are kind of stone in more than a decade. in a televised address times emotional president would revenge,
7:15 am
but said the assets to get people out of the country will continue. here's what you need to know. these isis tears will not win. we will rescue the americans. we will get our afghan allies. and our mission will go on, the evacuation will continue and that the united states will get out any and all american citizens and african nationals were permanent, us residency, what's known as a green card, who want to leave. he said some people may not want to leave, but those who want to leave the u. s. will make every effort to get them out. he said it is an airline airlift mission, unlike any other in history and was expected to be dangerous and stressful that was planned for also attacks. there had been warnings about attacks. he call those us service members. now, i believe the numbers don't up to 13 who are killed, quote unquote heroes saying they are the backbone of america who are engaged in a dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others. and that the mission will and must
7:16 am
continue. now, more than ever, and he had this message for those responsible was a to those who carried out this attack as well as anyone wishes america harm. no, this, we will not forgive. we will not forget. we will hunt you down to make you pay. general kenneth mackenzie, the head of central command, are cent. com said isis carried out the attack specifically isis k or isis correson and will likely continue to try and launch more attacks, adding that others have already been forwarded by security forces and cobble. the general went on to say to attack, involve 2 suicide bombers detonating explosives outside the abbe date of the airport and nearby hotel. the baron hotel, followed by isis gunman, opening fire on civilians, men, women, and children. along with us troops and military personnel. there are warnings about to attack and certainly raises more serious questions about america's evacuation
7:17 am
efforts. why it has become so incredibly catastrophic and also pass comments from president biden himself, about america's effort in afghanistan and the war on terror. listen to this mission, to degrade the chairs, tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo. some have been live was a success. i believed that our presence in that gas dance should be focused on. the reason we went, the 1st place to ensure i've canister would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland again. we did that. we accomplish that objective, president, biting senior really backtrack, even raising questions about whether the u. s. again, should have been in afghanistan in the 1st place to begin with, and certainly as long as the u. s. was there nearly 20 years as far as the ongoing effort, general mackenzie said isis remains a quote, extremely real threat. and we'll try to carry out further attacks, something president bite and also agree with saying this was a mission designed for stress. and that was expected to come under attack. and
7:18 am
certainly that happened, as we know, he said at this point, it does not appear the taliban played a part in the attacks and that it's within the taliban interest for america to leave the country as well. he added that again while america will pressed ahead, with withdrawing and evacuating any and all us citizens and ask in nationals by august 31st. the august 31st deadline, he could not guarantee total security was in here. it sounds ridiculous, but the vast majority of people and communities like that want to come to america, given a choice. so getting every single person out is can't be guaranteed anybody because there's a determination all who wants to get out as well. and there has been in tell sharing, and this was confirmed by general mckenzie between us armed forces and also the taliban. and so emphasized. and that seeing this of america is nearly 20 or involvement in afghanistan. now coming to heretic, violent and crashing. and it's not surprising to me when
7:19 am
a pipe and prisoners were relates after the take over the air force base. and it was pretty clear that now we have thousands of people who could do harm beyond the child on and the tell on is not a tightly military unit. so it's not surprising. it's just for me, particularly for the men and women in uniform and the veterans that i've been working with that get people. busy out of afghanistan over the past we've, we've got reaction to bite and speech from legal unless jennifer dum, off to an conservative commentator at martin. while let's say they were both fall from impressed with the president, was the global community is lost trust, and faith in joe biden, and his administration, a large truck now in the united states of america. despite the victory of the games and united states military job,
7:20 am
i have managed to completely unravel and unwind that in a matter of months, putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know, biding can get up there and say all he wants to cameras will hunt you down and we'll get you. but he has lots of credibility, not only this rate than the fear of our enemies, but he's a lot of credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that in 9 months of an administration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the bi racial. we're watching the bible presidency deteriorate before our eyes. this president is not handling this well and everyone knows it in america and the people in the rest of the world know it. so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the president is careful and slow and methodical. but right now what we're portraying is weakness and an uncertainty. he says at the end of his speech, and now i am allowed to ask the person and course i was instructed. and right now,
7:21 am
shina is looking to taiwan and, and bad guys are looking at america and saying, let's take advantage of this really weak, really embarrassing moment in american life. it's a big concern. wake up applause, multiple your opinion. it isn't our readjusting our evacuation plans. the august touch plus deadlines is 4 days away now, course of to which no western force is all set to remain in koppel p to all of that has more now on how the world is going to handle the situation. and the holly and plain there was evacuating people from the the air poor thing. cobbler came on the fire last night. we've already heard from mario doggie, the italian prime minister, saying that the upcoming g 20 summit, which will take place here in the italian capital will have gone to start as a big part of its focus elsewhere. what we've seen is the un refugee agency, specifically there representatives in germany in the spokes person in germany. i think they would continue their efforts on the ground after that 31st of august
7:22 am
deadline. the spoke 1st to the german un refugee agency saying the fire brigade doesn't leave when there's a fire. he did point out the sobering message so that while thousands of people have been evacuated through cannibal airport, far as the g un estimates, there's around 3400000 people trying to flee. afghan is done in the country right now. but a number of nato allies, particularly the european countries, have wrapped up their operations when it comes to evacuating people directly themselves. we heard from germany, from an a get cut about the german defense minister, who is the, the german base. and tosh tend to beckett's done where people have been evacuated out in retreating. troops have gone to is they've left cobbled before they end up back in germany. she said that the mission would really come to a close. we did hear from angle and merkle by the german chancellor saying that the
7:23 am
time was really running out to get people out of afghanistan right now side. so we know that the window of opportunity is closing. $10000.00 people could be brought to safety. i want to reaffirm that we will not forget those who can no longer be rescued by air. least we will continue to try to get them out of the country, the foreign ministries, talking to the taliban about this. and we will also coordinate internationally on how we should proceed. well, franz had said that they were ending their lift. however, in the last few moments, we understand that paris is looking at extending not 4 hours, perhaps even a few more days. up towards the 31st of august deadline, we had heard from the french president manually. my call. he said that there were 20 bosses of french nationals and africans, that france had taken responsibility for and wanted to get out of the country waiting i the asked or nearby to cobble for the french president and acknowledge
7:24 am
that the time. 5 that getting those people out with going to be difficult. and if it was the possibility that some wouldn't be able to be evacuated, we have known these risks and the thought given the confusion, that rains in control and the tensions at the airport, the next few hours will continue to be extremely risky in both couple and the port for safety reasons and bus that will not remain enough gun. and then he will remain on bus of the 1000000 that we will continue to have an ambassador and a team and an embassy for afghan, as we are not recognizing a regime but a country. well, the u. k. minister of defense, ben wallace was doing the rounds on british media on friday morning and one interview i heard, he said, he only wished they had 7 more days in order to get people out of the country. they don't have that time. in fact, mister wallace went on to suggest that the british presence on the ground enough gun is done, could be wrapped up in a matter of hours. not so much a matter of days. we will process those people that we have brought with us the
7:25 am
size and people approximately inside the field. and we will seek away to continue to find a few people in the crime where we can. but overall, the main processing has not closed, and we have a matter of eyes. there are still people that are going to be in afghanistan that we couldn't get out. we've also had news coming out of ankara. the turkey hasn't decided on a proposal that had been put to it by the taliban. now this was a proposal to try and help keep cobble airport after. keep couple airport open after the 31st of august, the deadline. what the telephone was still insisting on is that turkish troops called have made so would have to get out of the country. but they've asked for technical help from ankara in order to keep the airport open for a little bit longer. president of turkey said he still hadn't decided what his country's answer to that request would be. well, we'll be listening in to what comes out of the meeting between the italian prime minister foreign minister and the russian foreign minister said gala for all we're
7:26 am
expecting that i've got to stand will be off on their. busy agenda as well, in any news that comes out of that, of course, i'll bring it to you here on our team and it's gone a shot. there was few believe the west intervention enough kind of stone is what actually gave rise to isis. and the 1st place that he would spread by, by the western element, been west and central asia under the guise of war. and tara had a says make defeat, do not want to spawn. i says ease a creation of mr. mocker on you know, i wouldn't need shipping u k, the political elite and washington. but the reality is they want to give the was and impression that they have the celtic situation in cardboard. that's valuable, not, not in control. therefore, potentially have also tried to give a warning sign to russia, china, iran, and bach. a son that one is on may slip into
7:27 am
a civil war. again. well in other news, in catholics on a series of explosions and amunition, whitehouse have killed 9 people and injured thousands more. a fire broke out at a military unit. why? how he used to store ammunition, resulting in a nice 10 explosions, 500 tons of t and t, y report to the school. if they had death to make similar pay, nuclear could have resulted in applause comparable to the devastating explosion in a route last year. just to give you a sense of the scale people living near the site have been evacuated to safety. a criminal probe has been launched and finding more than $200.00 a british businesses along with face and political need to have launched the joint campaign against cope with passports, which they claim are a sign of oppression. the initiative called together has launched the petition
7:28 am
calling on people of different political views to unite and once described as a fight for freedoms. some of our hard one, right. so now under serious stress being ordered to produce medical certification at pubs, clubs, theaters on public transport at schools, universities, or anywhere else is unwarranted and risks deepening the inequalities already present within our society. we want to free fair and open society for ourselves, our friends and our families. when addition to that, hundreds of u. k. citizens also be making a sound against covert passports, white on the streets of london, the suite for headquarters of 2 national broad constance were targeted with the demonstrators, claiming the news reports were biased in favor of the passes. one of those behind a petition campaign believe it's time life returned to normal. it's entirely unreasonable and unacceptable in a free society that we should be demanded to show our papers. the security guards
7:29 am
of our most private and intimate details. venues are not willing to do it and where many of the public can stand against it and the government needs to span down in the vaccine possible. it's make no sense logically. but actually there are an attack on a way of life. nobody ever suggested that we should have passports to show where the, the had through vaccination is just on except for and has nothing to do with house . we need to get back to normal without any restrictions. and no, it's no boss is far more risky to our society. now, if we try and have a checkpoint society a to, to society, a segregated society, we are far safe as a society. if we're free an open while not, no thoughts goodbye from us. hey. and most of this, i come your way now dennis miller plus one, he's, we've got great gas. so it was sticking around for great the
7:30 am
you know, look at the low bowl economy. say what's happening as the goal lowball bang, perpetuate there. lowball money, train thing. a folks, well it's taking the world by storm. the world a t v. ted lasso jason's film show over there on apple plus and is a to camp is side kick is very funny. nick mohammed and this shows got a nice little to it. funny, but it has a gentleman who i think we can use in this time. we'll talk to nick about that. and he's also written a great, great show called intelligence. very funny david schwimmer and he will also dive into that a little nic mohammed right up to this on dennis miller plus one.
