was set to complete is to withdraw from the costly to decade. war the and very side footage on social media show some disturbing scene desperate afghan, staring for the life attempted to cling to the outside of a u. s. force plane at campbell airport report say human remains were found in the landing gear of the us military transport act following is flight from cobble gunshot to cobble international level to monday,
7:03 am
while hundreds of desperate afghans rushed towards the u. s. military jet. that was preparing for take off for the same time ensued came to the airport, meant to jim and play, and only managed to evacuate. just 7 people with the german national, unable to reach that jet bombs. i munition was seen abandoned in luggage racks in the car park of cobble airport, his locals, abandoned weapons as they attempted to flee the country. pictures of also those that those lucky enough to make it onto a plane on sunday, although they were then met with another trash of people this time on board $640.00 was said to packed inside this particular us. yet, as the pentagon says, it's preparing to accept 22000 asylum seekers. the u. s. embassy and cobbles also been evacuated with staff, fleeing in a helicopter to the capitals port. it's let's the comparisons being made on line to a similar evacuation almost 50 years ago. during the war in vietnam,
7:04 am
washington noticed that there are no parallels to the events in saigon. let's take a step back. this is manifestly not saigon. we're working to make sure that our personnel are safe and secure. we're relocating the men and women of our to see to location at the airport. it's why the president sent in a number of forces to make sure that as we continue to draw down our diplomatic presence, we do it in a safe and orderly fashion. we discussed the ongoing situation in afghanistan with for the u. s. navy intelligence officer steven real jesse says that he can't help but draw parallels with what happened to vietnam. the goal was to ensure that the app in government was strong, that it was a nation where the people were free. it was a nation, ruled by a constitution and not ruled by any dictator or a terrorist organization. so the goal was never achieve 20 years of work
7:05 am
was put into that we have seen as a cash defeat. how do you leave all these people behind the aft and the citizens to, to, to be met with the baby, torture and murder. this reminds me of saigon. i was in the air force during the time, so i got out. and when i see helicopters in bul landing on rooftops in airports and giant us air force planes, having him refugees, board. those planes reminds me of saigon. and when we see its history repeating itself, so there is no bright future, obviously for again, it's damn. but until we make a change in our nation with regard to our foreign policy, we don't have much of a bright future either. the assisted shantia arabic spoke to mohammed's name from the taliban political office
7:06 am
. the group is still clasped by most countries in the world as a terrorist organization. so i think the answer to this question is really obvious. the world can see that the territory of afghan austin is now under the control of the islamic state, islamic emerett waste war against the occupation in order to create an independent islamic state. it was claimed that there were 20 different terrorist groups, perhaps more or less operating in afghanistan. but when he is land make emory announced to see far a few years ago, not a single shot was fired. and then the islamic emerald struck an agreement with the us. there were rumors in the media and reports that different groups when conflicts over this agreement. but the truth is that no one broke this agreement, then the groups joined. the taliban and the invaders announced their departure, then more more groups began to join the merger. dean
7:07 am
will know. joe biden appears confused in some of his statements. withdrawal of us troops had to be carried out in a strictly organized manner. after signing the agreement, we told us that the withdrawal should take place in a strict order to an agreed shed. jewel, we told them that at every meeting and then when they postpone the withdrawal for 4 months or longer, we tell them the same. i don't know why there is this chaos and confusion and tension why the dramatic events took place at global airport. the scenes cause pains all afghans and also cause fear in those trying to leave the country. they are not exposed to any danger because they are in our homeland, among their people. we strive to make the future for the people and the country worthy. we have no desire to take revenge on these people. we strive to ensure that all people united, despite all the challenges we want to build a new country and make our people have a decent future. we have issued
7:08 am
a number of decrees including the decrease concerning those translators who collaborated with the occupying regime for one reason or another. the past is the past. they don't have any problems right now. the latest on the unfolding crisis in galveston, we spoke to local janice blah. so our what we heard from malaya in an audio message, the son of the former leader in founder, the other one, malone mar, instructing at all. fighters to make sure no one gets into anyone's home. no one is allowed to seize a vehicle or a weapon or anything from anyone. and this is simply not allowed. we also heard from a senior taliban leader on the state run radio, television violence, and it's now controlled by the taliban. the amnesty is to all former government officials and everyone in addition to work including the offer to the african women . there was some hand said the future government, you know, the official said it'll be slamming,
7:09 am
but no further details. what provided i think what you're looking at is the big test lead must. as for the taliban, how do they transition from a very liter fighting force into an effective government? not a shadow government, a government that deals with its own people in the world and neighbors. and i think this is a big question. i've seen the reports have been going around a major cities, particularly coppell, collecting weapons from people saying innocent civilians will not be harmed. you don't need a weapon to defend yourself. i think he mentioned that taliban are not allowed to go into people's homes. and yet during the emergency un security council session, the ask at envoy warner lives are in danger. and the taliban was conducting house to house searches for opponents. is it that unsafe at the moment it's difficult to get a clear picture. well, i'm have now said that they have listed a number of people who are weighing around the homes of former officials and politicians and basically picking up vehicles and weapons and other stuff saying
7:10 am
that door arrested, that no one should be able to do that. that's just simply not allowed. the taliban publicly maintained that they will not harm anyone. the thought of one publicly say that they are misty means that every one live he lives. see how those, you know, promises hold on the ground and practical terms. but it's all about are also added now they're in full control. you know, they cannot afford criticism from the outside world and criticism everyone in terms of going after people the while the taliban will seem to trolling the strengths of cobble, brandishing weapons, and heavy military equipment are also seen driving american on these and collecting guns from people promising no one will get hurt along with the sweeping territorial gains, the taliban seems to grab not only political power, but also us supplied fire power named guns, ammunition helicopters and more prison button broke his silence on the cross. it
7:11 am
was the day after the taliban to take control of the country. he claimed the u. s. mission in afghanistan was never about nation building. our mission and can stand was never supposed to been nation building. it was never supposed to be created a unified, centralized democracy or only by last interest. and again, stan remains today. what has always been preventing a terrorist attack on american homeland. but his statement came in stock contest the pass commerce back in 2002 and said, failing to establish a solid national government in afghanistan might create a lawless, safe haven for anti american terrorists. caleb morgan takes a closer look at the president's conflicting history with the conflict. when you look at what's happening and afghan a stand, you can hardly say that joe biden is blameless. he supported the war 1st in congress and then his vice president. and now he says that his decision for
7:12 am
a sudden withdrawl is correct to many, it looks like he has absolutely no clue what he is doing. what in his mind, it all makes perfect sense. we want to have gans dana was 20 years ago with clear goals. get those who attract us on september, 11th, 2001. and make sure i could not use f ganeth stan as a base from which to attack us again. we did that now, summer remembering how wishy washy joe biden was when it came to the obama white houses decision to take out the lot and eventually praise the decision when it fit the overall narrative and emission that will go down in the annals of intelligence and special operations, some of america's most gifted security professionals tracked down osama milan after the trail had gone cold. the jo, what do you think? and i said, you know,
7:13 am
i didn't know we had so many economists around the table. i said we o demanded direct answer. mister president, my suggestion is, don't go, we have to do 2 more things to see if he's there. now biden looks a little shaky when you look over other foreign policy decisions as well when it comes to iraq. he voted for the war and he pushed the false claims about weapons of mass destruction, but now he's for withdrawing their to as vice president, he supported prime minister ma leaking and many of argues that he ended up emboldening ice when it came to libya, biden was very outspoken in supporting the overthrow of what was at that time, one of the most stable and economically prosperous regimes on the african continent now says that one was a big hoops as well. starting to look like biden doesn't really know what he's doing on the global stage. this is something his critics have been pointing out quite loudly in recent years. i think biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy. a national security issue over the past 4 decades. remember,
7:14 am
our biden campaigned for office by calling out donald trump says unpredictable and untrustworthy. when it came, the u. s. foreign policy. well, recent moves in afghanistan are certainly not an argument in jo biden's favor. you know, it's hard to know what's going through biden's mind because he does change his mind on strategic issues and he doesn't have any clear set of guiding principles when it comes to foreign affairs. yes it's, it's somewhat of a crisis, but the crisis happened a long time ago when democrats stopped supporting a non interventionist military policy when, when democrats were all in favor of going into iraq and going into afghanistan and when they supported hillary clinton and obama, when we when the united states military got involved in libya and other places, they already lost the logical battle they are in a crisis happens. so this is just another symptom of bad policies within the
7:15 am
democratic party. and the democratic party losing the good things that it ever had that it stood for the time you laid is a growing increasingly worried about how the situation is developing enough on the stand. they fear that the case could spread to europe with a huge soon army of refugees. the french president and the german chancellor were among the 1st a voice that concerns does almost disappear. we must anticipate and protect ourselves against major, irregular my great re flows that would endanger those who use them and feed trafficking of all kinds. we will therefore take the initiative to build without delay, a robust, coordinated, and united response that will involve the fight against irregular flows, stuff on the long distance. it is now a given that ok, that can no longer carry out attacks against the united states from gaston, as they did on september 11, 2001 with everything that has followed has not been as successful and has not been achieved in the way we had planned despite her concern and the ensuing crisis and
7:16 am
the potential impact it could have once europe, the german chancellor found the time to attend to film premier in berlin. again, despite criticism, the countries only managed to safely evacuate 7 of its national so far from campbell. even before recent events, number vaskins playing the country, each week was estimated between the 10s of thousands that's now expected to grow rapidly. through the crisis, the u. s. has authorized half a $1000000000.00 in immediate age to african refugees. peter oliver explains the vast majority of those migrants won't be washington's problem. europe has watched on in horror at the speed at which 20 years of nato occupation of afghanistan was turned around by the taliban advance sit down north pole at p. it is a challenge for peace and international stability against terrorism and those who supported smith and i was promised. this is an extremely bitter development. being dramatic and terrifying. now have to concentrate on the rescue, but we don't want anybody bilaterally recognizing the taliban. and we want to
7:17 am
united a position amongst all the like minded, as far as we can get one, as hundreds of thousands of people have already fled their homes. enough gone, it's done, and many more are expected to do the same here in germany, the man who's looking to replace angle, a miracle as chancellor says, we can't be allowed to let recent history repeats itself. we have to give our 1st joint european and trans atlantic response this week. the mistakes in dealing with the syrian civil war must not be made again, 2015 should not be repeated. the us quitting us ganna star and the return of the taliban is set to see a rise in both thinking sanctuary. but just where these people are going to go, there is already around 3000000 afghan people displaced in iran, over 2000000 of whom are undocumented. to iran has suggested that it could set up more refugee camps on its eastern border,
7:18 am
but that would require funding with eyes looking towards the a you for help. pakistan is home to 1400000, registered african refugees and asylum applicants. but along with turkey, which is housing over $3000000.00 syrian refugees, islam about an anchor, a king to work together to stop more arrivals. take your turkey is facing a growing wave of africa migrants transiting through iran. we will continue efforts to enable the return of stability in the region beginning with afghan, a stan, and to do that, we have to pursue and strengthen our cooperation with pakistan. b, u. member states. all very aware that europe is a destination of choice for many fleeing. i've got this done so much. so the, earlier this month, 6 member states put their name to a letter warning house stopping deportations back to afghanistan would be viewed and stopping return since the wrong signal, and is likely to motivate even more african citizens to leave their home for the
7:19 am
you. many hope the 2015 refugee crisis was a warm, soft not to be repeated event. it would seen that reality may have different plans . right now, we know that up to 5000000 guns thinking to leave their country and added would be much more than we have seen and 2015. the overwhelming majority of what we know from the poles in germany and continental europe. don't want to see a new wave of mass migration, especially not from afghanistan, who are people after 40 years of war for them, it's extremely difficult to, to integrate into the very liberal and feminine european societies. so there is a consensus from the center to the right. don't let them in and don't agree with
7:20 am
the 2nd 2015. the russian foreign ministry said that the situation unfolding in afghanistan is the natural results of the u. s. and they say truth withdraw could say washington's length operations in the country have been playing directly into the hands of the taliban. thought is, it is dawn of explains. they've done it finally from syria and libya in the middle east to venezuela and cuba and latin america. washington has a decades long history of failed attempts to bring anti government malicious to power. and at last they've crack the code in afghanistan with the taliban. apparently, all they had to do is instead of aiding them, they should have just fought against them all this time. thanks to our military and our allies and the brave fighters of afghanistan, taliban regime is coming to an end. there is little doubt that our greatest
7:21 am
military challenge right now is afghan. stan, we must reverse the tale, bonds, momentum, and deny of the ability to overthrow the government. our troops will fight to win. we will fight to win. it all started so well. the us invaded the taliban, fled to the mountains. the us trained and trained and train the new african army, spend billions on supplying it with more noms. we spent over a trillion dollars. we trained and equipped an afghan military force with some 300000 strong, gave them every tool. they could need all of this in vain, only for the taliban to seize all the equipment. as soon as i've got to stand fools, which strengthen their already solid position in the country, the comprehension of the situation on the ground was also far from what you might expect from the country deeming itself the military and intelligence superpower.
7:22 am
the united states currently lacks a comprehensive strategy to gates reconstruction efforts in afghanistan. it also lacks overarching plants with clearly defined metrics to guide its work in a number of key areas, such as anti corruption, connor narcotics, health, education, gender rule of law and water. all this lead to the inevitable corruption, the thriving within the security forces. there glaring ineffectiveness and as a result, lack of trust to the us backed institution from locals. the african population perceives places, predatory pundits and calls them the most hated institution in the country. around 30 percent of the recruited place of deserted whether issued weapons to set up their own private checkpoints and extort money from travelers. various sources before the telephone calls were preferrable alternative, and that they were perceived as accessible, fast and less corrupt than the government established courts. so when the u. s says
7:23 am
something like this, that force proved incapable of defending the country. and that did happen more rapidly than we anticipated. is it that big of a surprise? i mean, really well, but at least this time america is meddling actually lead and militant group. even one recognized as terrorists by many states to gain total control over a country of galveston who failed. the united states failed and they failed to train the api and military. but to be honest, this isn't even the 1st time where we've in something like this. remember how much the united states invested in in nation building in iraq and how the iraqi security forces web. at 1st sight of islam extended, it was very obvious to me. as soon as you know, you said that it would be withdrawing that this was essentially the same thing as hinting the keys to the towel them. but i truly do not believe that the american
7:24 am
public understood this. and i'm not even sure that the bite in administration understood the seed. this is what happens when you try to impose a western concept of them, but democratization onto a culture that has absolutely no concept of it. i mean, they didn't, they never had an army there before, and they, they were more involved in insurgencies and whatever. then we tried to build an army. this was totally alien to them. so none of this is surprising. and many of us very early on were saying this is a, a prescription for disaster. and this outcome is very dismayed. on the one hand, i feel very badly for the asking people because they have really taken the brunt of, of this miscalculation both by their own leadership and by the united states. government. ok, we'll wrap it up for this hours coverage of the unraveling situation in afghanistan
7:25 am
. we will, of course, continue to follow events closely. join me for days in 30 minutes. the the, the, the, the, an expected upside of the pandemic kenya is experiencing an ellison baby boom, $206.00 with why this kenya have so many elephant curves. and how has the panoramic impacted people's lives and a wall? it's a fairly big along in any fact he end up killing himself. ah,
7:26 am
i don't believe nearly. and then you got one via, well, and i will make, i was, i didn't mean to kill media group. they get the idea i can say, lucky to me. mean the thing in it, because at night that of the one who did the they didn't even notice whether they call to do it, but they know they come when he just wasn't go or whatever did it the guy nobody got to deal
7:27 am
with a 6 day marathon of creativity, a multi cultural festival, and the biggest variety is the competition. for a few days, palm became a russian cultural capital. 28 category, the violinist piano to be asked of parenting and data protection. not yours just throwing up over the water. sure. you know, if you get a good time, is there a way for them to be here? they filter when read in or context the delta gains only take the very best of the best buy i
7:28 am
me ah ah, i use the
7:29 am
i am kaiser. this is the kaiser report. no, you're not imagining it. the purchasing power of your money is going down now. oh, bu who? stacy? oh, sorry, i'm just having my cup of joe biden. this morning. you say this, you know what the couple joe biden is about, the coffee prices were seeing, and those are sky rocketing things could get harry right here on the set of cars report. if we don't get the coffee, while the price of a cup of coffee keeps rising and nobody seems to care, remember this is something we've been talking about over the past few months as inflation starts to war. but people's balances and their bank accounts are at all time highs in the household sector in america. so the inflation mindset set in long ago a few months ago as people were getting used to these enhance unemployment benefits . the non stop stimulus checks arriving in their bank account. and now those child
7:30 am
credit tax credits are also arriving a bank account. so everybody feels flush and they don't care how much prices are going up. they're willing to pay, they're not negotiating, they're not bargaining. right? so we already have universal basic income, so called u b i. it's already happening in america right now. people are just getting the stamey checks and they won't stop coming. they are going to allow people to live rent free. they're going to pay them more than they will get minimum wage. and so yeah, they don't care where the price a coffee is going because it's not their money. it's just a pastor mechanism to bail out bankers. and the amazing thing is that simultaneously we're saying interest rates go negative, surrendering into a period of the global economy, where banks are charging customers and savers to have money at their institution. and then.
