3:03 am
with his video camera off the 1st plane hate. although for all the years he hasn't been able to find the strength watches. i'm footage control the day of our interview. the i knew something was terribly wrong and i immediately wanted to get out there. and for some reason i, i wanted to grab my camera, put on my skates, and i by the time i got my skates on, that's one of the towers had fallen already. and i was just so unbelievable. and so i, i ran outside and there were already crowds of people outside gathering. i just felt i needed to, i wanted to document that i wanted to to be able to, to see it, you know, and, and it's funny that because i did shoot some video and i couldn't look at it later
3:04 am
. i, i never looked at it. i put in a box and i just put it away. i. the 1st thing i remember was a commercial airliner had flown overhead and everybody just screamed and thought it was coming down also. and everybody sort of ran for cover. and then you could see people with ash on them and they were just walking with just the last 4 eyes and i was just very unbelievable. and then you saw the plume of smoke that was once like the towers and you looked at that and you just couldn't believe that that that skyline was gone. and i think everybody was just in disbelief at the time. i remember the smell that came over the, the city. it was this horrible smell that smell like, i mean, i don't,
3:05 am
i can only describe it as metal and flesh and it was so strong that you could taste it in your mouth. and we were all wondering if we were going to get sick from this. the doesn't seem like 20 years ago. all of a sudden and yeah, just you think you lose these emotions and, and they just seem to always sit there somewhere and they and they come up. you know, i think about it. i think about my friends who have off their family, their friends. i know a lot of people that have lost loved ones and it was just a constant funeral, basically with name after name, after name of people who died. and we saw their life stories on tv. and
3:06 am
it was just never ending funeral in new york for a while. the media was constantly bardeen us days later with a message that we should live our lives. like normal to show that we beat this. but i was angry. wait power. excuse me. i was angry because the people saying were in big white houses, lot of security and they were saying to go with our lives and we had to walk around and we were afraid to go in public places like times square and we just never knew
3:07 am
what was going to happen at that point and i remember, you know, thinking i'm going to bring my son into the world. you know, what kind of world is going to be and, and that scared me. while the 911 tragedy led to the american war on terror and the invasion of afghanistan, us troops now, i entered the country r t will street and i. so the risk impact that campaign had on the lives the civilians and soldiers alike in a special project called on heard voices. we tell the stories of those directly affected by the long running battle. the will use all tools at our disposal. they killed our children to united states was bringing people to watch a site. it was a pointless exercise. well 53 year old mose him back here lives in britain,
3:08 am
works for a prisoner rights organization and doesn't vote like somebody who's lived the experience of america's worst prison practices. but he knows about them all too well. i had to stop telling myself that i'm a father that i am a son. i'm a husband that i'm a human being. i started to whole myself. what i had been told that i was and that was my number 558. that was my number in going in was in may 2002. i was interrogated by the c i and the f b i and they threatened if i did not corporate to send me either to egypt, syria, to be so the tortured you're with us. are you with the enemy? there's no in between and that doctor still stand ah,
3:09 am
in. i think it's quite clear to meet the united states response to the terrible acts of 911 was vengeance. the war on terror is not a police operation. it's a military operation. why they picked from me. it wasn't just me. they picked on everyone who knows. if anybody prepared to hand you over to contact, to talk to you. you know, i live pakistan is the enemy of right. and i'm my parents and i'm a deal national. they handed me over to the mountains without any legal principle. i was held for a year in 2002 to 2003. and i saw 2 individuals beaten to death by american soldiers. these terrorists play by
3:10 am
a whole set of different rules gets going to force us in your words to get me dirty and nasty in order to take them. i will use all tools at our disposal to do the boys. a few bad apples. isolated incidents, one by one, the terrorists are learning the meaning of american justice. to lead this place, i pity my what me and i did, states was doing in afghanistan. they were bringing people to this torture sight afghans ordering africa and abusing them outside of the rule of law and then allowing some of them to go back home and they would go home and tell people what the americans did. by the time i got to guantanamo, i was begging to go to one tunnel because what i've seen and witnessed in belgrade
3:11 am
was so destructive to this day i have, i can't sleep. oh i . several of us was sent to one tunnel including several taliban members, who now heads of various departments in the act and government were tortured. we were stripped, we were beaten with speck upon. we were humiliated photographs and this was taken during this period of time they had a, they found a woman in the next room that led me to believe was my wife being tortured. they waved with pictures of my children in front of me and asked me where do you think they are now, what do you think happened to them the night and took your way? and of course, what they wanted me to do was cosign a confession that i was a member of al qaeda, which i was not. and this was, i'd say, stand that i got it. i think i got it better than a lot of the other prison. i
3:12 am
me ah, so this is the handmade calendar that i made when i was in one tunnel. i thought that perhaps if i counted the days that it will be easier. but when the days turn it 2 weeks and month, and then 2 years, i realize that it was just futile. when i received such letters from my children who are very young at the time, it's actually made it worse to look at the calendar and start to count down the days my children growing up without me. and every day, without them, with a stab in the heart. and they would come sporadically, they had to be vetted uncensored by the us censorship. my daughter who was 6 at the time, wrote a poem,
3:13 am
12345. once i caught official life and they redacted that because they said that has numbers in the numbers could mean some sort of a code. so it was that kind of nonsensical reduction disconnecting from the idea of being a father. ironically and sadly, but also my own personal faith in my belief in god my reading, the koran and again and expectedly becoming friends with several of the american soldiers who would bring me little snippets of inclination sometime next week in a chocolate. sometime maybe we can a dvd player and show me a film. did lots of humanity that i have never forgotten to despair. and i think i left to go on time to move, not hating america because of those soldiers, me messages directly from some american soldiers who say that
3:14 am
this has be a, a war that has destroyed us as individuals, soldiers spoken to told me that they cannot sleep at night, so i am in no doubt about the, the effect of this war, not just on the individuals, but on the nation as a whole of whom the soldiers representative me has gone to the shop and unity types were destroyed. the united states produced a senate to report on torture, but not a single person was bought for charges for these kind. recently, i gave evidence the international criminal court for their investigations of abuses by americans, enough going to send, they will investigate to the united states. the national army and the taliban. the
3:15 am
only ones who responded by threatening the international criminal court was the united states of america. they said that we will sanction all members of the international court. we will arrest any members of the icpc who come to the usa or elsewhere that want to investigate us. i think the united states of america needs to step back if it wants to help any of any assistance to the people who understand it's not in the position to negotiate those conditions. it has, it has been an aggressor. the taliban already made gestures towards russia towards china to it's the wrong to it's pakistan within an easier would be like states and britain in particular. i think the feeling very upset because this is a defeat. it's a military defeat. however, you want to look at it and imperial hubris, as it were, will not allow them to say that we need to move forward and continue within negotiations that we began in doha, that they cannot be any more saber rattling. it's no good for the asking people, it's no good. i've got
3:16 am
a sense of what the britain or america you've really got to find a way forward. so throughout the day we will be hearing more from those. he's eyes forever changed by america's longest 4 of us in our special coverage. unheard voices. america's war on terror began in afghanistan as be heard with the goal of changing the world for the better . but it ended in chaos with the taliban seizing control. and the us control being blamed the habit that followed. our senior correspondent takes us through the whole mission. from the day it started in 2001. it began with, with largest and pump invade of dust on to fight for freedom to fight terrorism and make the world a better place. 19 years, 10 months and $25.00 days on. this is america's legacy. they're stronger than sabotaged equipment. a country bought
3:17 am
a ruin and still in control of the talbot. that is the ultimate tragedy of the afghan war at was entirely and violently pointless. years and years of an obliging little questioning media. fooled billions into believing that there was progress that america could win to her victory over the taliban. to taliban fled to the end of the taliban. taliban leadership on the run. and now the question is, how do you handle that success? the, the, it wasn't supposed to be this way. the taliban wasn't supposed to sweep the country in mere weeks. the pentagon spent a decade preparing to leave of got a thought. and even though they weren't ready for be together with our allies, we will complete our mission there. by the end of this year, i announced
3:18 am
a timeline for drawing down our forces. we are working to finally end america as longest war, and it's time to end forever. war the americas proudest movement of the afghan war wasn't supposed to be a humiliating evacuation under the guns of the taliban. but it was, there is absolutely nothing else to celebrate. the united states ended 20 years of war and can stand the longest war in american history. we completed one of the biggest err left in history with more than 120000 people evacuated to safety.
3:19 am
no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all the history. the only the united states had the capacity in the will and believe you to do it and we did it today. where was the afghan army? where was the west and back government? where did all the money go? the united states sank more than a $100000000000.00 into rebuilding of data stock for reference adjusted for inflation. that is more than the united states spent on the marshall plan to rebuild europe after world war 2. and the tragedy of it is that for a civilian the side from all the american weapons of the taliban pads, there is almost no evidence that any of that money ever passed through here from broken roads that lead to nowhere to abandon hospitals from twisted contractors and corrupt leaders, again it's dawn can arguably be called the largest money law during operation in
3:20 am
human history. the united states is also committed to playing a leading role in the reconstruction of afghanistan. a 2021 special inspector general for afghanistan reconstruction report found that the united states has spent nearly $7800000000.00 on capital assets in afghanistan, including buildings, transmission lines, and substations roads and bridges, motor vehicles, and aircraft. of that total, nearly 31 percent 2400000000 dollars was spent on assets that were not being used as intended, remained unused, or had been abandoned or destroyed in 2008. the u. s. department of defense spent $549000000.00 to provide the african air force with g to $22.00 military transport planes. a variation of an aircraft that the u. s. air force itself had retired almost 30 years earlier. because replacement parts were hard defined to the same
3:21 am
conclusion. and the g. $222.00 planes that had delivered to afghan stan 6 years earlier, were unceremoniously sold for only $40257.00 as scrap metal. the taliban now controlled more of the country than it did before. the us invaded its new government the field with what time? the mo, bay inmates and terrorists, medina, dean who even have american bounties on their heads up. washington achieved with the absolute opposite of what it intended. our war on terror begins without canada. but it does not in there. it will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found. stopped and defeated. on every front,
3:22 am
the mission of guy, this dog failed the taliban. he's back in power icon in africa in asia, and in the mid least now more powerful than it ever was before. and things even worse for today said i, relentless, ruthless, and remorseless. we must rid the world of terrors, or children and grandchildren can grow up in freedom. we are not nation building again. we are killing terrace. the key
3:23 am
bombing at capital airport during the evacuation epitomize the afghan war. a senseless act, devoid of reason, which needlessly cut short so many lives. we will not forgive. we will not forget. we will hunt you down to make you pay. we've heard the same promise before. 20 years ago when america was united and when it thought that it could change the world. but it thought it was invincible. and when the people believed a president's promise more i'd gas give r t couple of get his dot. now with the taliban, then in almost full control, we have spoken to, to people in the capital, lack of bull, and discovered how the past 20 years of american occupation have taken their toll. when i was at school, i said my targets in live but,
3:24 am
but unfortunately now it looks like, oh my dreams have bandaged much, i can achieve those goals. and we're worried about our studies and the prospect of finding work. many of my classmates have lots of dentist who missed them a lot. i still hoped to regain some kind of normal live ago, but looks difficult. so i was almost optimistic before. now with a new system, i'm confused, we're facing many difficulties. the body can make situation, unemployment. we've lost our future. it's in the hands of gods, whether this new government will deliver in 34 provinces of afghanistan, there was peace. 20 years ago. it was a war by the u. s. economic gain. we have won our freedom by sacrificing the blood of many people. the country's back contract now. going to song was progressing 20 years ago and it will advance again now. the war happened because the americans invaded our land to serve their own interests. they will not have to reconstruct or develop past chemist on the look how they destroyed or across the ruined airport.
3:25 am
and this shows that they were not here to help us. when the americans were here, they bombed our cities. they killed civilians, innocent children, and many people were killed. nothing good came out to the american invasion. the americans came to ganeth stand because they wanted to exploit our resources. they brought their allies with them. poor people like us became their slaves. and when they left, they took everything. wisdom, look what they did to our airport. in the last 20 years, a lot of money has flowed into afghanistan, but not to all people. members of the lead class built up their properties and businesses. ordinary people got nothing to be heard them. there has been a great human cost to the war on terror, but there's also been a gigantic financial price to pay to have a look at that in more detail. ah, [000:00:00;00]
3:26 am
i tell him in now has more black hawk helicopters than 85 percent of countries in the world. me and i just still exist in our growing data stand and eventually they acquire these went ah majority of every member behind me is a veteran. never in my lifetime,
3:27 am
what i ever believe america would have it in ministration knowingly make a decision to leave american mind. whereas just 2 weeks ago, the president promised this nation that he would not leave until every single american with now. we now have americans stuck in afghanistan, taliban in charge, with most more weaponry. and they've ever had in the past. and a border that is doing the the monetary catastrophe looms enough canister. almost half the population need
3:28 am
humanitarian assistance. one and 3 don't know where the next meal will come from. now, more than ever, african children, women and men need to pull out of the international community. ah, you're watching naughty international on the 20th anniversary of the 911 terror attacks just coming up to half past 10 in the morning. hey, remorse. sky will be back with more analysis and coverage of today's events. the top of the me ah. the drug 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 got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic,

told us that andrew was competent 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. join me every thursday on the alex simon show, and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business, i'll see you then, me the who's,
