d. c. is secretary of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff who spoke to the media in the course of the day. they say that withdrawal is going on as scheduled. some $8000.00 troops have already be moved out of a gun. he's done. they also made specific reference to locals who were employed by the us military, such as drivers and translators. a number of them have already been removed from the country as well. but the main point that they were making of the gains that kind of bond has made in recent times, the chairman of the joint chiefs the stop mark, milly saying that as of last month the taliban controlled some 80 of gun nissan's, 401900 district, but this number has now doubled. i would tell you that as of today, more or less, i guess it's about $212213.00 in that range. 2 hundreds of the district centers are in taliban control. it's about half of the florida. 1900 that are out there. you've
5:03 am
got 34 provincial capitols in afghanistan. none of them have been seized as of today by the taliban. although the taliban is putting pressure on the outskirts. probably half of them. 17 of them in fact. and what they're trying to do is isolate the major population centers that try to do the same thing to cobble. and roughly speaking, the order of magnitude. a significant amount of territory has been seized over the course of 6, a 10 months sort of thing by the, by the taliban. so momentum appears to be strategic. momentum appears to be sort of with the taliban. let's bring in marion us who is a member of the us african women's council. she's also an old professor managing attorney at prime counseled awesome to join us on scott from new york. thanks for your time. for me with heard from general mark billy. it's almost like what's happening on the ground that have gone on. it is a surprise, but i mean, the jewel down has been planned for a very long time. i think yes,
5:04 am
the drop down has been planned for many years, actually beginning from the obama administration. it's something that has been plan, but the issue now is what kind of plan is this where within a week of the u. s. leaving barger on air base in a way that really didn't even give respect to the african government in the middle of the night. that the taliban have made such a great advance. i think this would be alarming to the u. s. decision makers themselves. if the pentagon is saying that this is the rate of advance of the taliban, and this was not what was plan that should be cause for alarm and maybe rethink of the strategy. as part of the, the us tell a bomb deal. the telephone was meant to enter into this intro, ask and dialogue. instead, it's making battlefield gains and those talks are not really progressing. so what's your take on the success of that us telephone deal? i think that we never really moved from a strategy of war to one of peace successfully. these talks have been happening for
5:05 am
over a year and a half. i interviewed women in the summer of 2019 who were part of the peace process. and at that time they indicated that the taliban was willing to speak and to be reformed in some ways. and there was hope that they could come to the peace table and a plan could come amongst all the parties. but unfortunately, that didn't happen at the same time that the taller bond would be at the peace table that would be bombing a few miles away. and so i think that they never really were very, you know, up front and for coming about their participation and the piece, talk them. they had another plan and perhaps there are looking and waiting to see what the us would do and how the afghan national army would do. and unfortunately, although they have received some training from the us, it doesn't seem that they're doing as well as they could. and right now it's the african people through the state that still is representing them that need this assistance. otherwise, unfortunately, we could see another cycle of violence enough ganna then,
5:06 am
and we could be repeating history. and the us me think that it's not it's problem today. and tenure, 20 years down, the lie that could become the countries problem again. so i really don't think that the us leadership can ignore what's happening right now on the ground. enough can a, given what we're saying right now on the ground in afghanistan, the taliban says it controls more than what the us is, the telephone controls. but that's kind of by the, by a question is given what you're seeing on the ground, what are your concerns for the women of afghanistan? well, i think the women continue to be vulnerable population, but it still overall, it's not just the women, it's the people of afghanistan. they're still civilian casualties at a high rate. the people we all remember are still getting past this. coven, 19 virus that affected the country's economy. and we have to keep in mind the country's population is still very young. over 60 percent are still under the age
5:07 am
of 18. many have gotten an education. there's been a lot of progress in the country. every time you go there, you can see progress on the ground. and i think the can, people could be good partners in a piece effort if the right leadership there could be supported. and so i think unfortunately, we're seeing a kind of withdrawal of support. hopefully the international engagement will continue. the white house has made statements that there are assistance for humanitarian economic assistance will continue. however, if we don't have basic peace, i'm not sure how they will deliver that aid to the people. and so we don't want to see the turn into humanitarian crisis right at the time when we could go on a path towards peace and stability. right, thank you very much for your analysis at the very i'm attached there, a member of the u. s. african women's council. thank you. meanwhile, the head of afghanistan's reconciliation council is expressing confidence in the republic future until until the spoke to l,
