"Dot com. And from the listeners of KQED. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ailsa Chang in Los Angeles and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. Bagram Airfield north of Kabul, closed yesterday. With little fanfare, The base was turned over to Afghan forces marking the end of the U. S combat mission that began 20 years ago. This comes as the Taliban are taking over large swaths of territory, worrying members of Congress and Afghan officials Joining us to talk about all this is NPR. Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman. Hi, Tom. Hey, Ari. The name Bagram Airfield. Sounds unassuming, but it was a massive base, the last major U. S base in Afghanistan Tell us about the significance of its closure. You know, Ari, it's very significant again. This is the last big base. The Americans had the other large base. Kandahar airfield closed a few weeks back. So bargain closing really tells you this is the end. And Barnum has quite a history. The Soviets built some huge aircraft hangars air, and when the U. S special operations forces went into overthrew the Taliban in 2000 and one there are actually running gun battles all around Bagram. And over the years it just grew and grew with flight operations around the clock. A cargo planes attack aircraft drones, and they set up many more buildings, everything from the hospital to a prison to several dining facilities. Souvenir shops. They even had a shop where you could our order cars and motorcycles. It would be delivered to you when you got home. Now. Tens of thousands of soldiers passed through here over the past two decades and I've been going to Bagram almost every year since 2008 the first time I went there, I met this one star general named Mark Milley, who was with 101st airborne. Now he's chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. What a history. President Biden mentioned today that the U. S will continue to help Afghans. What does that help look like? Well, it's going to be largely financial. Some $3.3 billion has been set aside. And the U. S talks about helping over the horizon, and that includes, for example, aircraft maintenance second being done in Qatar. The U. S is also sending dozens more Black Hawk helicopters to beef up the Afghan Air force. But they still need a lot more pilots. The Taliban has been targeting them so the U. S. And other countries will likely be training more pilots. But no detail on that right Yet The real challenge will be that maintenance part 100% of the maintenance and the Blackhawks is done by American contractors and they're all leading with American troops. So I'm told it's possible some contractors could remain in Afghanistan to be paid through the Afghan government. That's all being worked out. They may also do get this tele maintenance from Carter. Is that help from the US enough to keep Afghanistan from falling to the Taliban? You know, it depends who you talk with. It's a great concern. A Taliban now are surrounding urban areas throughout the country, cutting off major roads. Some military officials are saying it's a 50 50 chance that Kabul could fall in the coming months. I spoke with an Afghan general just the other day. His name is Sammy Sadat. He leads Afghan forces in southern Helmand province. He was trained in the U. S. And Great Britain highly respected by American officers, and he was upbeat about the way ahead. Let's listen. Last regard and Kandahar cities are safe, and we have enough forces and Manpower and determination to defend it. And we plan to expand our security bubble beyond Lashkar Gah into the West, East and south. So he's talking about his area in Helmand province. Now not everyone is his upbeat or as competent as general Sudan.

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton is pushing back on a report. He says he's trying to smear his military service. This is not about my military record. This is about my politics. Earlier this month, the left wing website Salon published a piece critics say was an attempt to tarnish cotton by suggesting he claimed to have quote volunteered to be an Army Ranger. Cotton is a Ranger school graduate and was awarded the coveted Ranger Tab He leader served with the In 101st Airborne Division Seeing combat in Iraq. I graduated from the Ranger school. I wore the Ranger tab in combat with 101st airborne in Iraq. This'd not about my military record. This'd about my politics. Ranger Regiment. Legends like General Scotty Miller or General Craig Nixon have used the term to describe with alumni, the Ranger regiment and graduates of the Ranger school.

"You're smart Speaker to play 5 50 K of why I keep my husband must sell rustling 105 50 gay and why I revisionist history We're seeing all right before our eyes were seeing Not only A president and his administration completely erasing all of the accomplishments of the Trump Administration. I'm not just talking about executive order, but they get in front of cameras and say that they are going to do something that has already been done by the Trump administration. Essentially ignoring the fact that it was already done and it's already been accomplished. But now they're going to say they're going to do it so they could take credit for it. It's crazy to me. And it is revisionist history right before our eyes, But it's the media, the media that is absolutely taking the cake on this, and they're falling all over themselves doing it. Let's start with turning on the mic and telling you about the Washington Post. They scrubbed a Kamila Harris story that did not put the vice president in the most. I don't know in the best light, so they've scrubbed it, and they've altered some comments in that relationship. This is about her relationship with her sister Maya. When the former California prosecutors running for president story disappeared from the site and its link, redirecting it to a newer version published on January 11. This is story from 2019. That they described Harris in her grueling schedule and the rest, But she got from the soul cycle sessions and walks on the beach with her husband. So, you know they go in because again what they're doing with Kabul houses. They're trying to make her something that she's not. The problem with that is she's never gonna meet the expectations the media is setting upon her no human being could so in a sense, I feel for Kamila Harris on this, but at the same time, I know that she's probably behind this or her people are behind this. Hence the whole squad blow with of old magazine cover. Look great. It's fantastic. We have the first female vice president. Hey, Cool. Check it off the list. Oh, great. She's black in South Asia. Great. Check those two off the list. Fantastic, But now it's time for action. Because symbolism isn't enough. You got to do the work. And if the media is busy burying things from her past, we all know she used Joe Biden's crime bill system, the white supremacist racist system that these two people, Biden and Harris were talking about on a daily basis. Kamila Harris is on Lee in this position because she put black people in jail. The only reason she has a name. So I don't want to be lectured by people who use the system now wanna undo it? Because it's disingenuous. It's only because that's what the people want now because she did what the people wanted back in the nineties and put people in jail. So they're trying to clean this up and pretend that none of that actually happened in the media who likes to hold the powerful accountable. Remember, The Washington Post has a phrase that says Democracy dies in the darkness, but they're cleaning up Communist dark history in her own past nonsense, But you have to be aware of what's going on here because it's happening before our very eyes. And they scrub all types of media in the campaign during the campaign, they set this up, He least we kind of small glimpse of it when the media would try to poke fun at the Biden. I'm sorry, the Trump campaign and say Trump officials trying to erase some of Trump's passed and things like that. But then Biden was doing the same thing. And the Kamila Harris team was doing the same thing. And now it is carried over into their presidency. Why do you think it would stop? I wouldn't stop there. They're going to continue to do this. Matter of fact, they'll do it in real time as well. And they will make calls, phone calls to two news rooms and say, Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! We were going to fact check you on this good luck ever getting an interview in this White house again? If this leaves your press room if this gets print or this gets, too gets online, good luck with that, and all you have to do is print the threat. This is what the Biden administration just did with us. Just want to point that out, because we like to hold the powerful people accountable. They threatened withhold information from us if we didn't do X wires eat, but the media won't do that. Because Trump they would do it. If it was Nixon. They would do it. It was Reagan. They would do it. This happens all the time. I've worked in newsrooms. I know all about this, and it's not just Kamila Harris. Now they're already going after a potential 2024 GOP presidential candidates. My name. Tom Cotton Senator from Arkansas Republican. He's Ah, he was ah. War is a war war vet. Yeah, so he graduated from Ranger school. That's huge. It is, But it doesn't mean you're a ranger. Correct because you congratulate from Ranger school and you can go and you can continue to serve in the division that urine or, for example, David Goggins, who wrote a book called Can't Hurt Me? He was a Navy seal. He went Did Ranger school and I don't think he finished it, but he went back to being a Navy seal. Yeah, So you wanna graduate Ranger school? He wouldn't become a Ranger. He just would have been a Navy seal. So they at some point had cut their trying to, say salon dot com, is trying to say that cotton lied about his service or exaggerated his service. There's a matter of fact, he graduate from Ranger school. That means he gets to wear the Ranger pin. Essentially, he went back to and actually served in Iraq with 101st Airborne Division, which is a pretty top notch division. To servant exact and they're trying to take away from his accomplishments or his service. So much so that Newsweek followed along. They edited to 2015 story about Army Ranger school because there was two women who went into Army Ranger school. And it graduated. But they can't serve his Rangers because women are allowed to serve in the Rangers. The first two to do this, though exactly, but Newsweek at the time called him Army rangers. And that's not technically correct. But so based on Salon story, they went back and scrubbed a story from six years ago. Basically, To update the facts. Instead of issuing correction of the bottom of the page, Like typically, you see in journalism like, Hey, we got something wrong and that's fine..
