1:03 pm
at how it all unfolded on that day, september 11, 2001. it began as a clear, sunny tuesday morning along americans, east coast. just before 8 o'clock on september 11, 2001 american airlines flight 11 takes off from boston, followed by united airlines flight 175, a short while later american airlines flight 77. it departs from washington, dulles airport and united airlines flight 93 from newark, new jersey. at 46 am, slide 11 crashes into the north tower of the world trade center in new york. people assume it's a terrible accident. more than a 1001st responders head to the same, 17 minutes later flight one at 75 crashes into the south tower. president bush is informed that america is under attack, american airlines slide $77.00, then crashes into the pentagon. authorities ground all flights across the united
1:04 pm
states, but one more plane was still in the united $93.00 was headed for washington dc. possibly the white house capital building or other targets. after burning for 56 minutes, the south tower of the world trade center collapses. morning networks is showing these pictures live to millions of americans. the passengers and crew on united 93 the power, the hijackers and the plane crashes into a field in shank fil pennsylvania. at 10, 28 am the north tower of the world trade center also collapses. nearly 3000 people were killed, including citizens for more than 90 countries. while the u. s. quickly blamed al qaeda for the coordinated attacks and then launched a military campaign in afghanistan to target the groups leadership and training camps their rob reynolds looks at the aftermath of the events. h. one, a whisper in the president's ear set in motion actions that changed the u. s. and
1:05 pm
the world. 3 days after the attacks president george were stood a top the rubble of lower manhattan and promised retribution. i know the rest of the people who were all of us. the plane immediately fell on osama bin laden's tie the organization based in afghanistan, which had already carried out several deadly attacks on us targets abroad. less than a month after the attacks, the u. s. began military action in afghanistan, been logged in the skate, but was tracked down in pakistan. nearly a decade later, the united states has conducted an operation that killed or some of been latin, the leader of volcano. but even with bin laden dead, the war in afghanistan dragged on for another 10 years ending in itala on victory.
1:06 pm
the september 11th attacks were a profound shock with images playing out on t. v. in the aftermath wall makers rushed to overhaul national security laws with little or no debate. the events of 911 really frightened people enough and i don't think many people ever read the patriot act and realized really how profoundly it changed what government is able to do in terms of tracking and conducting surveillance on american citizens. for many americans, the closest contact with the new enhanced security state came at the airport. the magnetometers, the metal detector, the x ray machines, you had to start having your id scrutinized, and then taking off your shoes, the limitations on liquids. and then finally, in 2010 the full body scanner,
1:07 pm
things that few americans would have contemplated before now were widely accepted. the government initially was intercepting virtually all of the metadata on all of our emails and telephone conversations without any warrants. this was just drag net surveillance, the invasion of iraq in 2003 over through saddam hussein, who was later captured and executed. but it produced no weapons of mass destruction . 200000 rockies, and more than 4000 us troops were killed. the naval base at guantanamo bay, cuba became a prison, where so called enemy combatants were held indefinitely. some remain there to this day. a color coded system of threats was introduced, keeping citizens on edge. that was the goal, frighten the american people, inflate the risk factor amelion folded n p o 0. well, we have to accept this, because otherwise they'll be bodies on the sidewalks and on the streets and
1:08 pm
everywhere else. the abuse of detainees by us sold at abu ghraib prison in iraq, appalled many in the us and around the globe. but at the same time, in the u. s. veneration of the military grew, we have sort of fetishizing the military over the last 20 years. we have no idea of the long term impact of having people who have grown up entirely during a war period or people whose entire adult life has been serving in a war zone for presidents and 2 wars later, the u. s. is a far different country from the one that existed 20 years ago. rob reynolds al jazeera, well at spring and robert gucci. he is an associate professor at lancaster university and also a specialist and u. s. foreign policy. he joins us now from lancaster. robert, i want to start with the reaction we saw at home in the us because that felt like it became very reflective of its approach to foreign policy. a moment of emergency
1:09 pm
allows various groups and ideas really to make themselves seem very necessary. so how do you think 911 changed the way that the u. s. or the wells and cultures that were perhaps considered less american, less western well, and i hate to reiterate anything from the reporting that i think just really hit the nail on the head. just now, but as a local reporter at the time in 911 in the midwest of the united states i, i've seen a lot of, i saw a lot of that immediate domestic response of hyper militarization of police which seeped into churches into classrooms and really began to foster, i think a baseline for where we are today in domestic politics. and that has a direct influence into the national and international responses that the united states leads in terms of fears and moral panics related to was fueling as momma
1:10 pm
and into negotiations with its friends and neighbors or across the world and how to respond to western and american interests both economically and militarily. so the things that have happened over the 20 years, domestically on american soil, in terms of the response, has a direct impact into the narrative of popular culture spread across the world and politics. all narratives is so important as rob was mentioning as report that we saw this enormous rise globally of a surveillance state that also raped and other various governments. i mean, many would also argue that the global war on terra has provided additional moral justification for rendition, torture, extrajudicial detention. and i think that that's absolutely right. and i think that we have those generations now. students i teach who, who are in the middle of this normalization process and those continuing in it's,
1:11 pm
and it's not that we look back to pre 911 with nostalgia as though things were perfectly fine. but certainly it has become a lot more to stop b. and then any of us could have even imagined those, those of us who were imagining us imagining it might have been a little unpopular those days following the immediacy of 911. but we have, we have generation now of people who are tracking their children and they go out to school who are hacking into each other's social media. and who are seeing this portrayal of themselves as american or otherwise, as as a commonplace for the way that they see their own future. and i think that the effects of the response to 911 over the 20 years are going to have ramifications for hundreds of years going forward as we indoctrinate people to what the norm is. now, when you talk there also about militarization, i see the u. s. defense budget doubled between 20012008. but i was also struck
1:12 pm
looking at foreign aid that, that also more than doubled over the same period. how did 911 change the non military side of us intervention abroad? yeah, well i mean, i think part of this is you found the line with the united states government if you want aid and if you want assistance. and if you want to be on the good side of policy making internationally, certainly you, it's very difficult to take money that is, that is for a natural disaster or for a health crisis, for instance, and then come back and say, well, we don't agree with your foreign policy and that's because domestically in the 9 states up the way it works. that's seatbelt laws. for instance, a very normal think passed was if you want federal aid for your highways, you will require that. so this is where the seat belts, whether that's good or bad in that same sort of mentality, is applied internationally. if you want assistance, then you will do our bidding in terms of who,
1:13 pm
who we go after in your country. if we have military bases in your country and you play the game and we'll get along and, and i think that to some, that might be really simplified. but i also think that we have that evidence, that that's how that works. robert gates either an associate professor at lancaster university and a specialist and u. s. foreign policy. thanks so much for sharing your expertise and your thoughts for the fun onto there. so thank you. whole as you know, the $911.00 attacks lead to a 20 year war and afghan asked on as us forces and their allies thought to target all kind of fighters and the taliban, which was accused of harboring them. thousands of afghans were killed and many lives turned upside down. charles dropped said reports now from cobble on people's hopes for the future. insult, whose homes was destroyed during fighting between us led forces and the tolerable 40 years ago. his brother, one of his songs, was killed. he and his family have lived in this camp for internally displaced
1:14 pm
people in cobbled ever since. he blames the united states and its allies for the pain. they've been jord, woodyear, shallow colored coming at us in the past 20 years. we've suffered so much that at times with hardly been able to eat for days. all africans have been through terrible hardships, not bombardments, fighting our health and destroyed the war last, not so long because we are africans, and we will fight for our country in central cobble today. tale bon fighters, god form of government buildings and abandoned foreign embassies. the challenges, the movement faces off the what it describes as victory in a fight for national sovereignty or remains. its been 20 years since the 911 attacks and the soon after us that invasion. to hunt down all summer, been loud and remove the taliban for power. then followed what the taliban describe is 2 decades of foreign occupation. the foreign forces have gone metallic bound back in power. and the un says that afghan stan is facing a humanitarian,
1:15 pm
an economic catastrophe. this is the old american embassy, once a hub of cia and military planning. one of the most important centers of us foreign policy in the world. now, it's just an empty shell. hm. it google was 24 when us led coalition forces invaded . he is about the future holds. show, look, i look at the moment in the last 20 years, my hopes change, but now they've been left behind all afghans. thought we'll get close to the rest of the world when the americans were here. but now we have to wait and see again what the future will green. despite his doubts, he says he wants the world to give the tale by chance mythical taliban. oh no. oh my life i've experienced only war. i just want to sleep with ease. i just want to wake up with no fear, i'm tired of saying good bye to my family as i leave for work. afraid i'll never
1:16 pm
see them again. but you know, the but this is one of many graveyards on hillside surrounding campbell. here are buried. some of the estimated 50000 afghan civilians killed in the last 20 years. well that, that is our goal says he also wants the international community to accept the taliban. he wants education for his children who are born into war. he wants the chance for them all to start their lives. again. charleston off al jazeera carbon while meanwhile, a new times investigation has revealed. the u. s. may have mistakenly targeted an aid worker and its last era talking to kind of stone 10 people, including 7 children, were killed in the drone strike. that was the legend targeting i for fighters and couple of august shot about us has worn out from the african capital in that joined strike. the pentagon said that it hit i so bonus who were planning an imminent attack on the airport. we know that civilians were killed in that but now this
1:17 pm
investigation has, has you. cctv footage has talked more than a dozen of the target family members and colleagues and found out that he was actually a worker for us a organization. they also showed that he was loading canisters of water into the car and not explosion. explosives, as the team to gone, had seeds. and they are also teaching that there wasn't secondary explosion, which is what the pentagon used to prove that they knew that they were explosive in the car. the pentagon has responded saying that we are assisting results to be a strike. we work hard to prevent civilian casualties and it was based on good intelligence but for africa and has a lot of criticism and they also find it quite symbolic. but the last is strike that happened in this nearly 20 year was killed civilians and other big question marks or whether they had the right person. well, since the taliban took power shortly after foreign troops pulled out of afghanistan,
1:18 pm
thousands of african civil so left the 2nd international charter flight from cobble since the us that evacuation has now landed in castle around 160 people were on board that flight that touch down here in doha. some of those passengers will be transported to a facility housing, africa evacuation, catalyst foreign ministry says couple airport is now operational. and it's now up to other airlines to decide whether or not to use it. mama john jr, was have kept him out international airport when that place is bright from cobbler arrived. there was a little bit of confusion yesterday as to whether the 1st flight that took off from from cobble and landed here and how that went to about 113 passengers on board. if that was just a regular passenger flight, or if that was considered a charter flight clarified today by a re official even before this flight landed that it is technically a charter flight. when i asked dr. bonnie: about that stress the fact that these are passengers are able leave of their own volition yesterday before the flight to cobble on cobble airport. how many cars i
1:19 pm
airport in trouble. he said that these are passengers who will have their papers, who have tickets and boarding classes and they got on this white. whether or not they are technically considered a vacuum. we're back to the matter is they were able to leave and that's what the officials were here night are stressing. dr. funny thing for him at the moment, the important thing is that the passengers had their papers that they were able to get on those planes, and that they were able to arrive here. i talked to connie as well, about whether or not we should expect more of these types of flights in the days to come specifically offer airway flights like the plan you see behind me coming from cobble arriving here in doha. and he said that, that's going to be up with you in some regards, the other airways. they're going to be corresponding, communicating with the airport in cobble and, and arranging these flights. so there's still a little bit of vagueness about how exactly this perceive while now pakistan international airlines, i said it will restart flights,
1:20 pm
dr. canister on from monday. it says it has clearance to operate commercially now to and from travel airport. the airline says it's had requests from agencies and journalists, which also encouraging demand now a group of women, meanwhile, have attended rally organized by the taliban in cobble. they held sign saying women who left afghanistan cannot represent us. and we support the islamic emerald of afghanistan. the taliban has been on the international pressure to preserve the rights of women. well, let's now bring it, michael simple. he's a professor at the mitchell institute for global peace security and justice at queens university. belfast. he's also a former deputy, each special representative to afghanistan and he joins us now from dublin. professor, i want to talk about the regime in power. now in cobble, many of suggested that the u. s. intervention overreached that it evolved from dealing with a terrorist threat into nation building rather. and we've obviously seen that play
1:21 pm
out elsewhere. iraq to does this outcome. now draw a line under washington's nation building project. do you think it's it a strange way? i'd say it's too early to say simply because i think that the regime that we have in power in cobble is not in a state of librium. this is not the final state. and i found this done. certainly so much of what the us tried to do and promised on, and that which the us is african partners tried to achieve currently lies in ruins. but they, the regime in cobble really is so narrowly based on enjoys. so that will support out from the population on is about to face unimed credible economic crisis. that this is not the end state. i think we're gonna have to suspend judgment still. so well, in the meantime though, these details that emerged about that drone strike seems quite the punctuation
1:22 pm
market and the us presence in afghanistan. how reflection is it of what's happened to the way that warfare is now conducted post $911.00. while really i think that when the, you know, the us evaluate waters, you know what has happened and i'll promise down that going to see a massive investment has been put in. and so few of the returns either military already cannot make you seem to have stood the test of time. and yet, i mean the, the where things achieved and i promised on. but probably they could have been achieved at far smaller cost. they did not require an army of occupation and they did not require trillions of dollars. so i'm sure that they will be a fundamental rethink not to say that they are, that there was nothing to be done an offer on the stock. if it was to be done, it should be done, should be done in more sensible ways that did not involve the $100000.00 foreign
1:23 pm
troops city and promised on a did not require the expenditure of trillions of dollars. when you're talking about the money, the yes, the u. s. was in afghanistan, we saw massive aid flows into the country, and now the u. n. is wanting of near universal poverty by the middle of next year. how damaging is this a dependency going forward for afghanistan? in the future, while this is, i mean that a real tragedy that we're looking at now because when i look back to, to 20 years before i was a un official on the ground, i've called us and it was an absolutely dire situation. 20 years ago. and although $911.00 was a tragedy for the united states, it also seemed to be an opportunity for off runs a year and economy, which was basically a standstill picked up. we've had the foundations of a modern economy established, we had some kind of vibrancy vibrancy there. are no, not all off guns benefited from this. still the economy picked up and suddenly
1:24 pm
suddenly, with the taliban overthrow with they that the foundation of that modern economy has been removed. the banking system is, is on the brink of collapse. aid is a at a standstill. if there is going to be a resumption of aid and the short term, it's probably only going to be humanitarian. so in a sense where back exactly where we started 20 years ago. so yes, absolutely, the i'm the, these you and warnings should be taken extremely, terribly seriously. professor michael sample there format deputy, use special representative trust kind of stuff. thanks so much for your time and joining us out there. thank you. well that's now bring in ben rich, he's the co director of cousin university extremism research network and also a senior lecture and international relations. he joins us now from perth, in australia, dr. rich, we've been talking a lot about the global war on terror today. and i know many people feel like the war itself created more enemies. you. you specialize in the middle east. how true
1:25 pm
is that in that region? so i think the sad writ is that we really robbed, hated. hi paul for this one. well, al qaeda was itself sounded as an organization, although it is still around today. the reality is, is that 2911. we've seen a proliferation of radical islamists militant groups in many responses as a, as a direct result of the u. s. intervention. and the rage, of course, the most obvious and famous of this damian philosophy stuff there is pretty here that while the u. s. has largely been able to protect the homeland from any sort of a re paid of $911.00. the children are now caught out like the law states had inflicted minutes. horrors on the table in the middle way. just as a result of us citizenry been checked. but this has been at the caught
1:26 pm
log right off the middle east into this when talking about how it created more enemies, but it also created the opportunity for some fairly unlikely allies. how did 9 let them change the way that the u. s. approached other countries in the region that perhaps espouse and all the different values. well, it's certainly shards corporate in the us approaches to democratization and human rights. while it was initially some push for democratization in traditional allies like saudi arabia, to kill it. and they made it off tomorrow night. i will i, i apologize, we appear to have lost mr. rich there, but we will for now move on to other news. now israeli police have caught a 4 of the 6 palestinian to escape from a maximum security prison on monday. 2 of them though,
1:27 pm
remain at lodge. the men had escaped by tunneling their way out of go bow, a prison in northern israel. the jailbreak prompted a large scale man hunt by the israeli army and law enforcement agencies. that one of those 4 prisoners who've been recaptured is a korea. you bady. he was the high profile figure in photography wing the alex motors brigade. that's now speak. terry forces, he's in western and i'm with all the laces. harry, how did they find these men? well, they were alerted to the presence of 2 men to the east of nazareth in the early hours of this morning. it seems the prime minister natalie bennet remotely went up to be involved in the planning. already be briefed on, on the operation as it took shape as a carry, as a baby and mohammed our day was said to have been hiding in a truck parking area. one of them underneath the truck,
1:28 pm
one of the trucks and specialists units moved in and took them. there were reports of an attempt to, to ward off and to resist that, that closing in. but no shots were fired and both men were indeed arrested. as you say is a baby very much the most high profile of the 6 men disappeared in the small hours of monday morning from gilbert prison. he's the only one who isn't a member of palestinian islamic jihad. he himself being a senior commander in the alex. i'm artist brigade, the factor i'm doing i think there are 2 interesting things about the details of this recapture. both of these 2 men and similar recapture of 2 of the other escapees. a few hours earlier on friday night, again as to the south southern area of nazareth, they all seemed to be very much on their own looking for ways to shelter and feed themselves. they were unarmed. so the idea that this was
1:29 pm
a coordinated assisted escape with some kind of threats to israelis of a, of an attack imminent, which is one of the things that was being talked about. that doesn't seem to be the case. it all seems very much on their own, and the fact that it did not end in death. it didn't end in a firefight or any real harm coming to these for recaptured escapees. i think that wards off the immediate threat of, of a bigger stabilization in terms of the regional security picture high hole that there with all the latest for us, from west tories from thank you so much, harry. while stella had few here on algebra, protesters on giving up the fight off the thailand. prime minister survives a 3rd confidence gaps in their schooling. we look at south africa struggle to fill a classroom during this current, a virus pandemic, and involuntarily field ways in ahead of his return to the ring the 1st time in 10 years. so we'll have more views
1:30 pm
getting going on saturday, september 11th. here's what you need to know. we've got some big thunder storms transferring from sardinia right through to sicily and southern italy. we do have red weather warnings in play for just how volatile this bundle of energy could be impacting southern italy. next stop, we're going to turkey and we've got sunshine in the forecast for you and your temperature rate where it should be this time the year with a high of $25.00, still breezy for the eastern med. that garcia will get up to 34 degrees on saturday, iberia toward the northeast of spain. we've got a run of rain, so we'll call it barcelona rate down to valencia with your high of 28 fil. unsettled in the west, we've got that cloud covered rain, so that's pressing down temperatures. but if we look further toward the east
1:31 pm
sunshine in warsaw with a high of 27 degrees, we'll get into some bursts of rain across scandinavia as well. so also 19, much cooler.
