i was the the we went to have gone down twice in the last 6 months to record this footage. many people warned us that filming the opium crop being eradicated just wasn't realistic . and that our chances of finding villages willing to show us their crops when next to 0. they said we'd never be able to find out who's backing the drug trafficking business in the country that had a nato military presence for 14 years. that's what they said, that it wasn't easy,
but we did manage to achieve our objective. my chair, still up there for us in 2009, it was our team, but shorter documentary commemorating the 20th anniversary of soviet troops withdrawing from afghanistan this time. but it was, we flew in local people warned us that a lot has changed in the country and not always for the better.
oh, the the, the last in a series of operations to eradicate the opium crop enough canister was a failure. the money just got to spend on the presidential campaign. the country's budget around dry investigative reporting is a serious challenge. you're expected to oil, the wheels a little by paying back sheesh before you can fill anything. the bottom of the you know, the new movie,
the whole lot about the driver and translator amolla said they would not get back into this. is there any time you want to be shown in yellow junior to show you that but let me pull it up. would it be a come on june, but you will see many more disability because the leader come on to the police, which basically means burned. money has become a local attraction for always traffic gems. here and pedestrian stop by justice. stand on top of the bridge and look at the denizens beneath. we were told that anything like this would have been unsinkable when the soviet union was here, or even under the taliban.
ah, we had to pay a private gun to make sure we could fill me safely. the get to my neighbor john john coleman. i don't, i don't know they won't know to touch anything beneath the bridge. under any circumstances. it's very easy to get infected here. most of the drug use as a terminal. yeah. the my local standards. we enjoyed a warm welcome. just the day before and i've gone a colleague had his lin smashed and he took a few punches on the under the bridge, a heroine fixed cost $6.00. that was how much one local user asked for. he called
himself cited in here. they have to just get the all new job or job. so i had agreed to appear on camera in return for money. he volunteered to show us how he shoots up drugs, but we refuse that and instead offered him an alternative suggestion but we will get it booked. he does look like there are several state sponsored drug rehabilitation hospitals and couple we're planning to visit one to find out if they are able to admit the patient from the street. or if it's a time consuming process that involves tons of paperwork. level
people is if it was the up again, the butcher due to the middle of a broken despite having proper accreditation, we were soon detained by the state security service. we were accused of filming classified subjects and possibly for working for the extremists, specifically the taliban. yet that we thought most love for the main camera was confiscated, but luckily they didn't see the 2nd. we're going to look it up in
a minimum of the moment. of course in the end we weren't taken to a police station and we refuse to pay back station. we were forced to delete the material. we filmed on the main camera and then they let us go from there. i could get that said, i don't know lucky time ago, i didn't look back either come interview them or not, but they don't go that it's one of the luckily that was our only brush with the law as we later discovered, one of the police generals, remember the word should've been very well. that means soviet the police immediately let us go with them on a raid the punitive one like what
i'm saying because they don't need to, could you please, can i put it in? you put you put me on hold on. i don't you know, and i don't know what to do to get the movie on june. i'm going to call you normal love to talk about it for the last 2 of you or did you want? i don't know. you're more than happy to do it. if you got did all of them by going you know, you're going to be on the tag or you're going,
you're going to place in it. and you were pretty sure that the police are well aware of all the places where locals can buy drugs. most of the time they're sold from inside expensive houses secured behind high walls. no one can get in without a warrant. but the minute word gets out that a rate has been planned. information seep through to the drug dealers themselves, making it impossible to catch them read and it does not
want to bring him, i guess issue with him. so i'm i switched media. so you've got a quick scan. i'm not going to like you to be the senior, could i put a couple of when you but just gives you know, well those will be nice to the beach that didn't go to the all of the uses arrested during the re with soon released by local standards they didn't possess a big enough quantity to justify a jail term. the police say there are about 700000 people like them in the city. that's almost 18 percent of couple of population. the
most of the big fish don't wait for the police in town. but at the checkpoint on the road into the city, the police call it the gates to couple. they have their own procedures that hardly ever used a special equipment that was purchased recently with us money than laura customs to the old school methods. looking for stashes in the more unlikely locations. and following their instincts, one of the most surprising weapons against drugs we found was what they call the veracity test. they presume that a real help at heart will give him away. you simply lay your hand on the suspects chest and feel his pulse. we were a little skeptical at 1st enough. now nobody will settle the
moments later, the officers did find a stash of hashish in his shoes. we will start when you in a little over in that same veracity to us through a shadow of a one man who driven his car to cabal from july about in the east of the country, around 1 o'clock because they thought to be out of pocket enough others as well as my father tell me like this because gracious for them without a chance for them without unless you more that should be so much you got them all they can do that is it commonly use trig for traffic in drugs the game showed that the tank was full,
but there was actually no gas at all. in its place, a 21 kilo stash of opium bobby's there is by no means a large quantity by today's standards. the staggering 50 tons of opium and heroine confiscated at this check point alone each year. hefty prices are put on the heads of the most zealous police officers. i found my way to shaft miller definition to get charged on us on this of others, and they have a bunch of other support over the i use
. ah me only one main thing is important for not as an internationally speaking that is a nation's pickups. are allowed to do anything, all the master races, and then you have the minor nation. so other slave, the americans, proc obama and others have had a concept of american exceptionalism. international law exist as long as it serves the american interest. if it doesn't, it doesn't exist. like turning those russians enter this dangerous man that wants to take over the world. that was a culture strategy. so some of it on your own. i english v i v i n r t leashed adult in one and tablet block nato. it's our we move east. the
reason us. hey jimmy, it's dangerous. is it the lag? the sovereignty of other countries? the exceptionalism that america uses and its international war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nature, what is founded, shareholders in the united states and elsewhere in larger companies would lose millions and millions more business and businesses good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fascist. i the next morning and web back to police to the place where drug users get together
. this time were accompanied by the doctors who have agreed to admit and to the hospital. not coming up, we still need to see him, but he don't want us to say it was nowhere to be found. his phone number was blocked and the when no police to guard us this time. we were just about ready to leave empty handed when 5 minutes later sired reappeared out of the blue. about this time he wasn't happy to see as accompanied by doctors when he learned that the treatment would take almost one and a half months. he tried to back out to find the other
over 200 patients from around f. ganawe's done. a currently undergoing treatment in this hospital, it's considered to be one of the best in couple a strip search is conducted before people are allowed in. that was the time when de la disguised, his visitors came to smuggle drugs into the facility. he bought a car that took it to the body. elaine nick online did with him in 10 minutes later we barely recognised said he'd been required to part company with his hair. that's compulsory for anyone who's admitted to the hospital. because
the 1st 15 days of treatment of the toughest, he'll be in quarantine. because this is when patients go through what's called arrow and withdraw him on the focus with him. he caught one at the other version, actually more money in your function. space for either kayla maddie, maddie demario laxity. looks up michelle formulation. right. so we're going to, as i mean i got about it. so i made one up and again, i really don't move on to any of the water. what is it i do show now to say thank you it's everything is going to be
my question. because i think which is going to come up because what you can move, this is move in with an employee at the period with what we're putting. it does not match it if you can switch your way to the way that you don't the me i do the following morning. we've agreed to meet a fellow citizen for several years. russia is being sharing satellite data with
a canister about the whereabouts of undercover hello and of arteries within its borders. there was an operation recently to destroy and illegal a heroine lab. they promised that we'd be able to see the police footage 3 of them already, but i thought it was 0 way to move in which the chillers cut to keep them unless i learned from federal workers because there's one in which one would be willing to practice the will for your records, if you wish, that the ones that i learned the
history on the book. but you know, there's a bunch of, you know, up on the credit for from a minimum wage form for me. because the question was, i would say this is what i can somebody for me to confirm a family, go to school, i need to get a logo for me to kind of give you what you were still get a and he'll be nipple supplies on the page for me to renew last year and he comes fully and got it done. i will go for the district. but it also seems an important question remains. why do international forces that are for taliban radicals? enough chemist on for more than 14 years continually overlook their main source of
income, namely him drugs. we wanted to arrange a meeting with a former field commander who started to fight the taliban even before the nato military arrived in the country. none of the men of the house, aided by a relative who act as interpreter, shows us pictures of his former fellow soldiers. each one has died a mysterious death in recent years. as almost all money will be late in the country from what they did a little bit. we need to because this is much new. somebody was to stick the would it be lets you see it because it just says in the eighty's field commander had become fought alongside the merger d him against the soviet forces. years later,
he even treats his former enemies with respect. unlike his current ones at the well, we went with one state to do what is her number her and how did it and all who i'm john got us on, on a moment for me. all of you call by the lead on about saw them. how did, what did you call them? and i wanted me to get a job through zone i was shown a check on them in the commission by john burn them off, you'll get which is not going to go that on general. had it comes advice, we drove out to a couple of summer where we tried to find people who'd actually witness nato soldiers working with the taliban. i'll be talking to you. what did you a business usually? are you going to start a new business? it was a took a breach state cookie. today,
it should been noted here. so when you push revision to the couple, you can pull up some there were several dozen families survived. the nato air strikes viagra to a bombing. the taliban that had ordinary working people's homes. even though everything was documented, several years later, these people have still been unable to secure any compensation data. she down, she was, she was gonna try to did if you could, if you know, almost like there was ones in american military base where these people used to live. they could see poppy fields flowering in the distance. but even though the crop was there, close to a nato base, no one seemed to be to bob. and i'm just, what i could,
that was what you meant was ellen. how about angelica, via judy from 2nd? cordelia did all of their both either of these are my me either jennifer, i don't want them to sit down. they will let you know that you know that you deal with john. you just out of the mind me out to jot. i just got out of the hardest thing for anyone visiting afghanistan to figure out these days is where the $7000000000.00 that the us allocated to combating afghan heroin has gone since 2001 . if what we saw in central cabal today is the pinnacle of the anti drug campaign. and it's very clear why the overall acreage of poppy fields in the country continues to grow each year. just as we were about to finish filling the anti drug wall or phone rang, it was science later, the man we had help get into
a drug rehabilitation program the previous day. yes. waiting for you. nobody evidence of the brother no show. when you go to melissa moody, kind of it is this is our 3rd time visiting. so it's workable as drug users get together. say it had said he didn't want us to interview him this time he'd run away from rehab. and the only thing he was asking for now was money, presumably to pay for him to get home. we had to be honest and face planned, helps i get treatment for his addiction, had simply ended in failure. he returned to where he'd come from and rejoined his old buddies.
mm mm mm mm ah, psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients, or are they, they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term. they really work, the problem is in a long term, they're mostly disastrous. suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition that was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines. any up to
something wonderful? very often they're harmful effects and up to something terrible. can pills so of all ills? or are we trying to mitigate life itself? i just think i was like i was just scared, scared a little girl, the 24. and like i didn't have to be so complicated. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk the a war on drugs started as a way to come back. a great problem. what's the one?
it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota, and it's got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic, told us that andrew was competing short form. this is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening with the military guns. fire rings out across a couple as americans 20 your presence and i've got to stand come to an end. the last us evacuation flight left the country in the early hours. the 31st deadline day one get a chance, i'm not going to get you get.
