Post david ignatius with me here at the pentagon and washington editor to ozzy media caddy k. Joins us as well david. I'll start with you a lot to talk about this morning with the end of the longest war as well as twenty years almost to the day the nine eleven attacks on america but first. How precarious is this situation with the taliban as we try and get more and more people out. Is there concern that things could fall apart. Yesterday's fly was good news. Obviously for the people who were on the flight. Right americans dual-nationals. They're out. there are many more still still. It's good news in that cutter has acted effectively as an intermediary cutters rebuilt the cobbler airport. So can operate again. Cutters been a very effective go between between the united states and the taliban government and then finally this shows that the taliban who now form this very traditional looking government in kabul at least seem to be understanding international demands more people be allowed to leave. There are still many americans in modules schrief north of kabul That are of great concern. And it's not clear that the taliban is fully prepared to let these americans dual-nationals go from that Venue but we're just in these first stages where we're trying to figure out. How do we communicate with this new government. What will the new government do. How will it behave exactly. Is it hopeful that cutter stepping up. Maybe helps hold them to account from several fronts. So one of the truly hopeful signs for me is that is that cutter a longtime Contact host of the taliban at during all the years of negotiations toubon officials were in doha qatar The the cutters able to play a role as a bridge between east and west between afghantistan and in the us are other countries that may play a similar role that have been active in afghanistan. This is going to be a long road back and people should take heart that this first flight left was supposed to be another one today and we'll watch that but After the scenes of chaos that we saw last month as the government fell and this american projects in afghanistan really and this is just a first step geist.

"John this is the John Batchelor show I am happily return to the east coast time my travels in Asia were revelar charming and I very much send my regards to my colleagues and new friends in Tokyo and Japan to look at the world from the other side is a is a moment to have fresh shots Japan is on the frontline against the aggression of the people's Republic of China we will speak of that later in the program Japan is on the other side with Eurasia and Eurasia is troubled by the turmoil especially in Central Asia and that's where I begin tonight because there's there's positive news from Doha Qatar I read from al Jazira the US and Taliban was taken to iron out a peace agreement to end Afghanistan's eighteen year conflict during a fresh round of talks in Qatar's capital Doha negotiations in there eighth round began on Saturday Taliban source told the news agency that efforts were underway to organize a direct meeting between US envoy for Afghanistan Khalilzad and Taliban co founder mullah Barrayar who heads the movement's political weighing the US which invaded Afghanistan and toppled the Taliban in two thousand and one once Taliban guarantees that Afghanistan will not become a haven for quote terrace while the Taliban is focused on ensuring the withdrawal of all U. S. led foreign forces from the country a man by the name of shocking a spokesman for Taliban said on Twitter on Saturday that if an agreement was finalized quote it will allow all foreign forces to exit Afghanistan with a certain time period now open the door for talks with the Afghan government so ironing out their peace differences which is why I welcome bill Russia and Tom Johnson of keep the long war journal with their colleagues I guess we could call this the ironing out their differences long war journal to use the examples of how the Taliban is behaving in this the time period of the eighth round of peace talks bell a very good evening to bill's traveling he's on these because with me and we began with an attack that took place in Farah province these last days a road side bomb build Farah province where is it with these thirty five civilian K. I a and and twenty seven W. I. A. ironing out their peace differences how are they doing it with the roadside bomb good evening bell good evening John in yeah so this attack occurred at late last week our province western Afghanistan along the Iranian border where this idea tack at the place is in a place that is completely under control by the Taliban it's on the ring road and they control to do the two districts in the vicinity where this this attack took place the Taliban of course didn't claim credit for it there's several other attacks like this were civilians are killed the Taliban doesn't want to be doesn't wanna get branded with that killing civilians of sensitive about civilian casualties you know in in so as the Taliban claims that trying dining of peace deal it's set up its military attacks in Afghanistan it's been at a steady pace and it just keeps calling the Taliban is not looking for peace in Afghanistan is looking for it's looking to reimpose the Islamic Amorite and retake control of Afghanistan and have the peace of the Taliban and it's not it's going to be anything but peaceful this these at this that's just one of many attacks that all right let's go to another report that you filed on long war journal this is in Penn sheer province where is that bill yeah and here it's just north of of couple this is an area that was controlled by the northern alliance even when the Taliban world like ET five ninety percent of the country now the Taliban claims they have this this for and surrounded the cut off all the passes there's probably some exaggeration to this but they took over a district two weeks ago that borders one of these provinces and Afghan security forces not the mobilize the project to project and your problems this is a a province that **** but by no means be under any type of threat this is what my shop the suit you know and and the northern alliance the Taliban never entered and here which fourteen thousand US troops and twenty thousand the at near troops a three ounce suppose it three hundred Afghans there are two hundred thousand Afghan security forces and cancer problems is under threat the Taliban is looking to go for the win that's what and and retake it militarily and politically enough to send their grabbing off pieces there grabbing off pieces of the map so this set down between Khalilzad and the co founder of the Taliban will favor the Taliban click making claims that it dominates this part before they begin first we withdraw then they begin negotiations the Afghan government and it sounds like they're going to present a map to Kabal that has everything but Kabal then I don't think you're going to sit down with the Afghan they're just say that they'll consider ice into the Afghans and the what they want is incorrect Afghan talk to not talks with the Afghan government they refused to speak directly to the Afghan government they say that there could be Afghan officials present but they'll speak to the Afghans and not the Afghan government so we're cutting a deal with the Taliban won't even talk to our ally if it's not going to be a deal that is going to favor the United States or the Afghan people I welcome Tom Joslin of senior fellow at the foundation for the defense of democracy because Tom gives us a report about the U. N. security council that hasn't got the memo from the Obama administration that al Qaeda is on the road to defeat Tom is this just say a miscommunication between Washington and the U. N. or is there tension here good evening to you Tom good evening John others definitely tension you in that the UN security council keeps publishing reports in fact four consecutive reports now highlighting the on going long standing in close alliance between the Taliban al Qaeda so at a time when the U. S. state department and it's chief representative in the talks the Taliban close I'd are telling the American people that the Taliban could be trusted the de facto characters and partner and that close out says he satisfied with the characters insurances he's been he's received from the Taliban without of course specifying were saying what those are we see now for Jessica reports but he went showing why should believe them because these reports are larded with detail showing how a kite is marbled throughout the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan other numerous points of contact in the relationship between them shows that they're intertwined and that this idea that the U. S. is going to be able to separate them on the way out is absurd and so what we're doing right now is we're keeping an eye on the specific language to the Taliban agrees to in any sort of a chord with the state department whether they specifically mention al Qaeda or not or just issue the same sort of generic language they have in the past in the past to basically tell but there's all well I can't stand is a threat to any of its neighbors or anybody else around the world and I won't be it's sort of this generic blanket statement which is actually demonstrably false but that's been enough to get people to believe the Taliban can somehow keep Afghanistan or terrorists in Afghanistan from threatening people abroad once again I go to your article which quotes from the U. N. about in the north of Afghanistan Babcock Schaden province which borders a number of central Asian states one of them was back a stab and you indicate here that the you and believes that al Qaeda is operating with trans nationals from the whole region I'll several hundred of them in northern Afghanistan and are we to believe that the Taliban is ignorant of this no in fact quite the opposite there with all these job all these Qaeda ally jockeys and okay operating under the umbrella of the Taliban and of October provide the protection and they work together closely hand in glove intern scene you know it's interesting jobs a couple weeks ago you visit central Asian you're talking about John about how your people in the area were worried about what was going to come out of Afghans yes yes yes they figure if we leave Afghanistan there next well guess what John look at this you ever poor I was thinking of you when I wrote this up because look at the language specifically says in there it says exactly what you said jot it says the central Asian states are very concerned about these al Qaeda jihadis from Central Asia were fighting in Afghanistan right now once they're able to reclaim the Islamic emirate on behalf of Afghanistan then all bets are off because then they they could be on a leash back into their home countries once again and that and that I think is a very real concern going forward here yes you identify here in this you and the monitoring team notes predominantly it was back group fifty fighters of the Islamic movement of those Pakistan which is the result of a splintering of the Islamic state up to a hundred fighters and east Turkestan Islamic movement known as the Turkestan Islamic party three hundred and fifty fighters that's one to a of people to push back into those countries and create chaos just when they are looking to us for stability and growth and walking away from Afghanistan hi Tom I know we agree about this but I'm astonished because you do the careful reading during the week I'm astonished that our colleagues who are educated are not making the same point that we're not abandoning Afghanistan were abandoning about sixty million people all of Central Asia you know I look I mean the bottom line that did that bill when I realized while ago but I think it's really sunk in over the last couple years in particular is that the defense department the state department a lot of these places the effectively given up on this a long time ago I mean don't forget that you know by the end of two thousand eleven president Obama had completed most of the withdrawal from Afghanistan the war effort limped on basically for several years from till then serve just Peter down to less than ten thousand troops by the end of the a bomb ministration this is a very small footprint president trump comes in and is convinced basically to increase that by several thousand troops a very small increase mainly aimed at trying to increase the training the Afghan forces and can get walk continue perform some limited counterterrorism missions this is not been a huge all hands on deck resource effort for a long long time so a lot of what you see now the reporting on this stuff about being America's longest war yes it is and about how people for free with being there as long as we have that understandable for sure that you know all that is derived from the fact is really hasn't been any real leadership on this war for a long time and I think that the bottom the bird the issue that's an excuse for the effort for the way the picture looks right now but it does explain I think the frustration also explains why you're seeing all these the basically this could pixelation by state department particular at the feet of the Taliban and that's what's particularly disgraceful about this is the basically state department is positioning itself to absolve the Taliban of its alliance with al Qaeda which is maintained since nineteen ninety six and the state department lied to pre nine eleven about okay as prince Afghans and Taliban represent as light directly to state department emissary says document an alchemist report they've lied about it ever since then and what's happening now John as the state department U. S. government is getting ready now to endorse that lie as American troops are withdrawn from the country this is the national security report brought to you by Scala dot com transforming the retail space with digital signage around.
