6:03 am
a political settlement that brings peace to afghans. mission accomplished the you have fulfilled. your assignment. also coming up showing as communist party is counting into achievements on it's 100 birthday tonight. we look at how beijing is celebrating an attempt at self reflection. that becomes an exercise in self delusion about what they paint a picture of an ascending global power whose rise is inevitable. it is the kind of fanatic nationalism that the world saw 100 years ago. the communist party is completely incapable of interest and to reflect on itself, fascinatingly to our view from p b. s in the united states into all of you around the world. welcome. we begin the
6:04 am
de leaving f janice dan, asking did we do what we came to do last night, the final german troops, station id f, dana stand left the country. later this week, the withdrawal of us troops is expected to be completed, ending a mission that began almost 2 decades ago, a mission that became america's longest war. it was the 911 terror attacks in the u . s. in 2001 that prompted the u. s lead mission in afghanistan. the target the tale bond, which controlled us in a stand at the time and had given the 911 terrorists a place to plot their attacks. 2 trillion dollars later and countless casualties among african civilians and alliance forces. can any one claim mission accomplished as the withdrawal and the taliban is reclaiming territory quickly? the top us general predicted a civil war could run within months and that could spell doom for the fragile progress that was achieved under the protective umbrella of an alliance. that is
6:05 am
now going home for peter, she dick afghans, dan is a home away from home for more than 30 years. he and his wife and marie have been 8 workers. they're teaching children how to read and write and do math. both are disappointed with the international communities achievements the events, it's in 1000000000 reconstruction, has begun street level fungus and they should have put an administration in place and kept a close eye on what they did with all the funding. none of that was checked. they just kept throwing money at it and when things didn't work out, they just threw me warm. ms. gordon, vince and closed clubs and my phone was off kitchen. listen, the shaddick say children still don't learn enough at school. partly because international partners made mistakes on an organizational level to the home figure ball. they built a lot so they built lots of schools that no one cared what was happening inside
6:06 am
them without the it was all very rudimentary punched i despite debate about whether the intervention of the international community was worthwhile. there have been marked improvements, especially in education unesco, say the number of kids enrolling in schools has risen clearly. but the education gap between rural and urban areas remains would be that there has been considerable progress at primary school level. is estimated that half of all afghans can now read and write. that was different 20 years ago. once again, the same goes for educating girls. in the 1900 ninety's under the taliban, they got no education at all. when women were completely oppressed under the taliban, their situation remains precarious, but they have gained some rights. they can vote, joined political movements and go into business law. but state level corruption
6:07 am
remains endemic. transparency, international ranks afghanistan as one of the world, most corrupt countries. one reason why aid money doesn't always reach its intended destination of the i know we have to acknowledge that the international community was not capable of laying down rules on how the money was to be spent. often to give the come, never got around to introducing good governance or tackling corruption. you you will to i to few and in our culture mckesson the security situation remains dramatic. now the taliban is pushing to get back into power. already has, has the country under his control dance. why anna marie and peters critic expect the situation in afghanistan to stay just as it's always been
6:08 am
extremely unstable. as we're safe though, i don't see any long term peace side unless the government reconciles with the taliban. and trying to get the countries out itself and land that of office and on sibling still a couple planned to go back again soon. they say the people need their help. now more than ever. when my 1st guess tonight is dr. eleanor, so i know the country director for if in a stand if the german think tank. be conrad, i know or foundation. she joins me from here in berlin. it's good to have you on the day. i want to start by getting your opinion on this. we've been hearing all day from the german military that this was a mission accomplish in afghanistan. do you agree? well, i think we don't have accomplished all of our goals and expectations and we have
6:09 am
stayed below expectations in many points. and we just heard about, we don't have security for the guns in the country. we don't have basic infrastructure in carbon. we have only a few hours of water and electricity a day. and corruption fighting has not been successful. so in many points we have not accomplished. i understand that you are planning to return to cobble in july. does that trip now take on more risks and dangerous for you personally? now that us and nato forces have withdrawn? yes, of course it takes more risk and also it's completely unpredictable about the next weeks and months. what we will see and my security setup, of course, is much more safer than many outcomes, have been combo or enough gone on. but it's unpredictable for all of us, and we don't know under what risk and under what conditions i will return to
6:10 am
cobbling. what do you say? when you're back in couple, if afghans come up to you and say, germany, the u. s. have abandoned us. what's your response? well, i say to them that i have always said to me to my off gone partners and networks. i have always said you don't have to wait, you cannot wait for external savior and an african solution. a peaceful solution can only come from inside from the guns themselves. and i can only call on the international community also to place confidence in the off guns that they can reach a peaceful temperament. but of course, there's no guarantee of success in what's your feeling from the africans that you talk with in the country. i mean, is there any possibility that a peaceful resolution can be found with a totally bon? well, currently the mood is really shifting and people become much more pessimistic. and
6:11 am
i can really feel attention growing day by day and also the anxieties increasing day by day. and the problem is not only the tale bomb that many groups in the country and many conflict parties to the conflict. and this is the difficult task of getting a negotiated settlement, where all of the interest the different interests are kind of represented and also balanced. and so i think that holly bond, yes, they are now that dominating force, but there are many groups. and now we see in rearming of militia, in the country, what i find quite worrying. and that has to really spell doom for the future of women's rights in the country or does it? yes it's of course it's women's rights. it's human rights. it's all to the freedom of media, the freedom of press, the feed, freedom of expression. so i see, particularly when we, when we talk about women rights and education, i see more of the danger to an implementation off at the location of the public
6:12 am
life of public media. and this is the main threat that i see if we have a government in the future with italy, bon, illinois, i know from the conrad out in our foundation doctors and we appreciate your time tonight. we wish you all the best on your upcoming, just to call me and say thank you. well, the architect of the us invasion of afghanistan and iraq, former defense secretary donald rumsfeld, has died to the age of $88.00 rumsfeld, sort of twice as tend to gone chief under president joe board and george w bush. but it was his 2nd time in the role that turned him into a controversial figure, s u shaped the u. s. war on terror in the wake of 911 to the very end rumsfeld, if you never admitted making any mistakes. i know the ask anyone around the world, what image they immediately associate with modern
6:13 am
d china. and if they're old enough, many will point to this 11989. stand off on t, m and square one man, demanding democracy against one tank and one party, the chinese communist party. well, we know what happened here. a massacre that sniffed out any hope of revolution. but inside china, these images, this history they've been erased will out of existence by the communist party. this week, china's communist party is marking. it's 100 anniversary with nationwide celebrations . festivities and fan fair, all approved for public consumption by beijing. of the parties. origins go back to 1921, a secret meeting of 53 people in a home in shanghai, in 1949 following a civil war party leader, mel's a don't seize power in china. he oversaw decades of war famine and repression and
6:14 am
exerted a monopoly over both state and society. in the late 970 s, china began opening up for business and decades of unprecedented economic growth followed. today. china is the world's 2nd biggest economy and achievement, that president, she's been paying is touting among many others. but in china, what is fact? and what is fiction? today, tourist bowed supply this lake, but 100 years ago it was a small group of marx's to sort out. this is alex, but they had convened in shanghai, but the fear of spies. so then move their meeting to boat on non who lake 100 kilometers south of the city. he is where they found that the communist party today non who receives visitors from all over china to confirm that it is the communist party that stands for and has brought us the good life we have to day to day to the household for month. the government has
6:15 am
built an impressive museum on the shore visitors. i told the story of the party that has tirelessly fought with the nations of the chinese nation. but during the cultural revolution, millions where you really aged and killed or there was mouth, great famine with tens of millions of victims by an erroneous collectivist ation policy. those pictures are absent from the exhibition of course, in the development of a party like ours the achievements in there are problems. but overall our party has maintained the right course and has made great efforts. so in our exhibition, we focus on this big trend on what really matters not everyone sees the trend in the same way, which is one of the few critics who still dare to speak out. he compares the
6:16 am
parties confidence to germany and japan before world war 2. how much of that but they paint the picture of an ascending global power whose rise is inevitable. it is the kind of fanatic nationalism that the world saw 100 years ago. the communist party is completely incapable of interest and to reflect on itself, fascinatingly, all over the country historic party locations are turning into pilgrimage sites. here in shanghai, the party found as convene before fleeing to the lake party says from all over china, happy organizing, visits to the site. the exhibition has received a complete make over with a prominent role for president seeds in p. here to party history is a carefully engineer narrative. to jazz is tory and at the party history
6:17 am
institute, which is supervised by the center committee. there are materials we cannot publish . this has to do with opposition. research or communication have to the party, the people that has our standpoint to special paging is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the centennial of the chinese communist party. but it's a party that remains and extremely tight control. my 2nd gifts tonight grew up during chinese cultural revolution. today she lives in the us and runs china. change a website covering the stories that don't make it past the sensors shining a light on human rights abuses in china. you actually tell joins me now. it's good to have you on the program. trying to communist party is turning a 100 years old. it has ruled the country for over 70 years. it out lived the soviet union. what is the secret to success?
6:18 am
pipe control. so the 1st 30 years, i've heard the program before me, it was the disastrous right? so the, the opening up and the reform is really a half hearted. there are things they wanted to open up and reform to take advantage of the rest of the world. the market in technology and the world. welcome to china. but they're all parked depth of china. does not the communist party has never meant to to reform open up to answer your question. the secrets are really, it's very simple. anyone who travel up in china in late seventy's or, or throughout the eighty's you,
6:19 am
you saw china what china was like. everybody was suppressed down, you know, half of fix to place to work or fix place to live. half a level of freedom to just travel or money to do so. but after they reform and the opening up, it's like, oh, i like to get a massive for like a curfew. that's the cur. previously the curfew was set to after 3 pm, 3 pm during the day, and now the curfew lifted up to midnight. so people did enjoy freedom to some extent, but they or another matter for like a cage, the cage was very, very small. everybody was stuff there can't move. now the cage is rather, it's somewhat to big. and people,
6:20 am
there are many people are chinese inside china or so brainwashed. they forgot that they are. there is a case where they are, you know the success. yes. so let me just ask you. yeah, let me just ask you though, is did the chinese people, they have experience unprecedented economic growth in the last decades? many people now are wealthy, you've got a big middle class and it's growing. have they allow themselves to be almost to be bought by the communist party. we give up our right to rule ourselves in exchange for material goods that the rest of the world hands. well, the middle class chinese are, have been for good 20 years. increasingly aware of their rights and the they are the m freedom side of the society. even
6:21 am
including those who live in the system by which i mean they work for the state. i think what you just said is a half to narrative that we sort of describe the middle class in china. but the thing is, the chinese in general, especially the middle class, they understand that. but if they ask more, they'll be punish. so they have to learn not to ask, are they satisfied? i really don't think so. yes, we tell the founder, editor of chinese change, we appreciate your time, your insides tonight. unfortunately, we're out of time, but we appreciate you giving us an insider's view of what is happening in china. thank you. thank you so much for having me. i feel like i said in humanity is restored, but it's also
6:22 am
a victory for all talk to my female and male. is that the jury for women? when i think i think the jury was an emotional moment from 2018. when you, as comedian bill cosby was convicted of sexual assault, you have to wonder what the plaintiff is saying and thinking right now, to date your pennsylvania court overturned crosby's conviction and ordered his immediate release from prison. pennsylvania supreme court ruled that a prior agreement with a prosecutor bard cosby from being charged in the case. cosby was convicted in jail in 2018 for drugging and molesting a woman at his suburban estate. earlier i spoke to our bedroom, entertainment journalist key, j matthews, in los angeles. she told us what this ruling means for bill cosby. centrally, not only has he been released but he cannot be retried,
6:23 am
remember the 1st trial against him ended in a hung jury. the 2nd trial and did a conviction where he was given anywhere from 3 to 10 years to serve. he's only served a little over 2 years of his sentence so so many people were surprised that he was being released and he was being released so quickly. but what many people don't understand is why. and a lot of this goes back to the fact that his, his attorneys made an agreement with the prior district attorney in philadelphia back then stating that basically if you come in and give a deposition and tell us what you know, and what you've done in exchange for that, we will not prosecute you. we will not charge you. well he did. he came and he talked about getting certain women drugs. he testified when he thought was under oath and was honest to the best of his knowledge. and shortly after that he was charged and he was convicted. and so now the philadelphia supreme court is saying that was wrong. or do we know how then it was able to get through all the way to
6:24 am
trial. then if the deal was made the deal was made, but you know, a lot of this is instructed in secrecy because the district attorney that charged him is no longer there. and so a lot of the key key players in the parts have moved on. and so i think what his attorneys were saying, we're going to allow this to move to the proper channels in the appeal process that they always believe that the supreme court or the state supreme court that is, would rule in their behalf. and they were right. so yes, they were worried about the conviction yet they were upset about the convention. but they ultimately believe that if this case, this appeal would move up to the state supreme court that it would rule him bill cosby space. and so he's not clear that no one is saying that he's, he's not guilty. we know that this is more of course, that that is a legal that is a legal thing. this his conviction has been overturn. but that does not mean that
6:25 am
he is innocent. remember, a lot of technicalities, how you look at the law between or not, somebody's in an innocent whether they've been convicted and whether a conviction is overturned. so we have to be really careful about how we phrase that. and this is one assault, but you know, i remember dozens of women have accused him of sexual assault over a period of many years. do you expect there to be new allegations? there could be, you know, but so many women have already come for over 50. women have told their stories to very many public, you know, newspapers and television stations all around the world already. so, so many women have come forward. so many women have told the same story about bill cosby. so there may be some other charges the company as we know it now with this particular case, he cannot be tried and he is already 83. so i'm not sure how long it would take them to come up with some other case with some other evidence. be able to present
6:26 am
that. you will to get a jury to say yes, we think there's enough for a charge and then have that play out. that would take quite some time. so i'm not sure where that would stand. yeah, it's an amazing turn of events that is for sure. keeping matthews in los angeles, k g, as always. thank you. oh, this week police in greece recovered a painting by pablo picasso. stolen 9 years ago from the country's national gallery . during a presentation of the recovered art work, gravity happened. take a look. the painting was being shown to reporters, and it had just been placed on the ledge when it slipped and fell. it is not thought to have been damaged in the fall. it hurts to look that doesn't. picasso presented the woman's head painting as a gift to the greek nation in 1949 in recognition of their resistance to fascism during world war 2. greek gravity
