Toby Harnden Shares a Story From on the Ground in Afghanistan

"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same time. It's a little bit

As Canada Morphs Into Cuba the Media Stays Quiet

"You know, usually when governments change, they are form or their structure its network news. Remember like the fall of Saigon with the helicopter imagery or the Iranian revolution or when Saddam Hussein's statue was drugged through the streets or even in Afghanistan when the Taliban took over Kabul again, typically when governments decide to transition from one philosophy to the other. Again, either from primal to enlightened or enlightened to primal or from culture to tribal or from chaos to organized or from separate parts to centralized that's usually a really big deal. Usually network news say, wow, they're deciding to go a different direction. This is worth communicating to the general population. That sort of change is usually really compelling. It sells newspapers, it rates really well. So when Canada decides to be a completely different form of government, why is the entire western media silent with the answers? That's answers easy. Because if the media actually did a full court press on Canada deciding consciously to metamorphosize its entire governmental structure, it would be really unpopular. People in Manhattan would say, oh, you know, I was all for this kind of COVID mandate thing, but I'm not really sure if I'm okay with Canada becoming Cuba.

Donald Trump on Afghanistan: The Greatest Disgrace in US History

"And we are honored to have my former boss with us here on our national radio show America first across the country. President Trump welcome back. Thank you very much Sebastian. Mister president, let's start at the beginning. How different was your approach to national security? There was no woke up under the U.S. Military when you were commander in chief, talk to our millions of lessons across the country about your plans for Afghanistan, the conditions based withdrawal and what we have witnessed the disaster we've witnessed in the last three weeks. Maybe the greatest, most embarrassing disaster we've ever witnessed in our country. The difference was almost first of all it was the opposite. It was the exact opposite. We knocked out ISIS. When I took in, when I took over, ISIS was all over the Middle East. We knocked out 100% of the ISIS caliphate. I noticed now they call it ISIS K so you'll explain that. But we knocked out 100% of the ISIS caliphate. We took out Al Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS. And you know what else and who else we took out? We took out plenty. And we were in total control in terms of Kabul and in terms of Afghanistan. They weren't even close to us. We were going to get people because I believe in getting at 21 years enough and we were like a police force over there and they've got to take care of themselves and as you know better than anybody at particular as soon as we leave, they would stop fighting. And they were fighting for a lot of money. They were among the highest paid soldiers in the world paid for by the American taxpayer. So that's exactly what happened. What we were going to do is get our citizens out, take out other people who deserve to be taken out. Then we're going to knock the hell out of the bases, but before we did that, we're going to take out all of our military equipment. I said down to the nails and the screws in the bolts. Everything out nice and easily. And then we take out the soldiers and probably blow up the bases because why should we give them to somebody else to use? So that was it. And Bagram, we were going to keep because bargara is near China and near Iran and also in Afghanistan. So it covered a lot of territory. So I would have kept that and it's a great area for exactly what it represents. So they spent billions and billions of dollars building it. That's the big Air Force Base. So I think the biggest in the world actually. So we would have kept that instead we fled like there was no reason for it. The soldiers come out last and the army, the military comes out last. After the people and after all of the $83 billion worth of the most highly sophisticated military equipment anywhere in the world, it is a disgrace what's taken

Leaked Document Reveals Biden’s Afghan Failures

"Joe Biden has now said he is sending 3000 troops to the Ukrainian region or Eastern Europe to try and defray Vladimir Putin. Leaf documents reveal Biden's Afghan failures. From Jonathan Swan from axios dot com. Hours before the Taliban seized control of Kabul, on August 15th, 2021, senior Biden administration officials were still discussing and assigning basic actions involved in mass civilian evacuation. So I'm going to connect what's happening in Eastern Europe right now with the Afghanistan debacle. Outsiders were frustrated and suspicious the administration was having plenty of meetings, but was stuck in bureaucratic inertia and lacked urgency into the last minute. While the world immediately, peppers the internal documents, it's clear officials were still scrambling to finalize their plans. Now first of all, we only have these inference information because someone is leaking on Biden. Right here in my hands streaming on rumble dot com not on YouTube at standing in solidarity with Dan bongino. BLE dot com streaming on rumble this week. The National Security Council, someone is leaking. These internal documents, we have all of them right here. And basically, it shows that the Biden regime had no idea what they were doing when it came to trying to withdraw from Afghanistan. We knew that, obviously, with the 13 dead marines and the Taliban taking over the country at rapid space for example, they just decided they needed to notify local Afghan staff to quote to begin to register their interest in the relocation to the United States. And they were still determining which countries could serve as transit points for evacuees. So someone in the Department of Defense wants to try to set the record straight when it comes to the Biden bureaucratic nonsense that led to this.

"And we are delighted to have with us somebody who I don't even want to call her a politician because she is and every time she comes on the show every time we see her speak, it's like an American. It is a citizen and that's what we need more of. Representing the 22nd congressional district of New York, congresswoman Claudia, welcome to one on one. Well, thank you for thank you for that great introduction. It's an honor to be on, of course. We have so much to discuss, especially we're going to talk about what a zuckerbuck is and your special, yes, your election integrity efforts will discuss that just give me lots of like a box. We'll talk about what is happening to the economy. We'll talk about recent events in D.C.. But first things first, tell us a little bit about your take as a mother of a marine as somebody who is deeply vested in the security of this nation. I want people not to forget what happened just barely a couple of months ago in Kabul. Give us your take from the inside from a member of the political elite of the last ten months of national security leadership in this nation. Yeah, let me just first say my deepest condolences to those families on the death of those 13 service members and women two women were also killed. Needlessly, we honor our gold star families, we actually did a vigil in my community to honor those 13 that were killed in August. And we also honored our gold star families from the latest wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nothing is more. Nothing more painful than to see service members killed in action, especially in a situation which shouldn't have happened. And that is why it's so tragic to watch. This whole I can't express how sad it was to see that that it actually happened. But we saw the chaos, developing on the ground, each day got worse, as Biden put forth his mission to remember how it started. And I remember the first committee. He said, I want to move out of Afghanistan and pull all our troops out on September 11th because it was symbolic day. Yeah, he wanted that photograph. He wanted that sound. I told that us out of Afghanistan. Is if the mission were not to advance freedom to ensure the safety and security of America, to protect our foreign assets, there are bases 85 billion in change of equipment left there with our enemy the Taliban to leave them to take back over and not understanding the callousness of President Biden to not see how devastating that was, especially to a New

We wanted with the taliban now in power in kabul and we must remember that the taliban was and remains a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al qaeda. I have no illusions who we are dealing with. It remains to be seen whether or not the taliban can consolidate power or if the country were further fracture into civil war. So why did you give them weapons. Then so why did you give them. Blackhawk helicopters mark. Milley mind. You give them rifles. Why did you give them grenades. Why did you give them eighty five billion dollars of our best weapons if they're an enemy and make no mistake. I know who they are.

"kabul" Discussed on AvTalk - Aviation Podcast

"Jason. You kind of mentioned that not necessarily the brightest of ideas and you got some pushback on that saying well. It was a risk that they were willing to take and they calculated the risk and leave it at bath. I'm with you. I think i don't think that was necessarily the best way to get to where they got given the situation. But i can see the other side of the argument mostly. Yeah i definitely. I'm not going to be convinced. But i can see the other side's argument that it was fine that they were in contact with. What was pakistani air traffic control. They're not going to proactively. Give them any traffic alerts. Are anything like that. But they were in contact with them and if something really did go wrong they could divert out of afghanistan. Same time why it wouldn't add Amount of flight time to go around afghanistan through pakistan. They already had overflight permit since they went through pakistan to get to afghanistan and it just seemed like in unnecessary kind of risk. Because the last thing you need is some forty two year old seven to seven landing in kabul with an emergency clogging up the runway as evacuations are in high-gear like nobody needs that and there's no emergency services. They're assuming or if there is they're extremely minimal so it may not have been a great risk to the aircraft but it presented in in my is an unacceptable risk to the operation in kabul Need to happen. But i suspect there's more going on to that fight than we truly will ever actually know given the coincidence with the global crossing aircrafts. I mean if you know more podcasts. At two four dot com we would love to know yes. Send us a nicely redacted he met with redacted email the best kind of email yes. And let's see just that a curiosity what's going on now. They're even right now as we record this a ton going on. It looks like Down to satellite-tracking tracking on the ground in kabul which ab means the one of the receivers is down but there's a us air force c. One thirty a turkish air force a four hundred m the camera. A three forty three hundred is around a royal air force a four hundred m a casey thirty-five circles overhead. Another royal air foresees seventeen is inbound from the south end is with another royal air force. C. one thirty and it's just a constant stream of these military is some cases commercial aircraft in and out in and out pretty much twenty four seven at this. Yeah it's a massive operation and on a future episode. Podcast were hoping to have someone on who has been helping. Coordinate these things obviously there a bit busy at the moment and were unable to join us this week but hopefully in the future will soon be able to have someone on to talk about the coordination. That's gone on behind the scenes to make this all happen. Yeah hopefully it's not just one heavily redacted. The beeping sound yeah. I think it'll be a bit better than that. Let's take a quick break and we'll come back and besides everything that's happening afghanistan. There's a lot going on in the world of aviation so we'll come back in just a second and talk about.

"Anyone who's still here is going to have to stay here. And they will have to face. The new reality of the taliban government and hopefully civilian flights resumed the airport. Hopefully they'll be able to get out in. You know kind of regular fashion with visas but the fact is we don't really know what's going to happen. It very much feels like the end of the twenty year. Us operation in afghanistan has been a series of competing images images like children and families flooding onto the tarmac and clinging to c. Seventeen plane some of them. Being ultimately killed in the process and scenes like tens of thousands of people being very efficiently airlifted out of kabul. By by the united states incentive military bases to eventually be resettled of images comes the carnage of this suicide bomb. And so i wonder how you're thinking about this. As a final image of the us operation he seems like a distillation of all the hatred and fear and violence of the past twenty years and it's ending our presence here on note that reflects just the the violence and the degradation of war. The kind of hopeless cul-de-sac that we found ourselves in evacuation It's just a coda to tragedy in. It feels so inevitable and so horrible and in many ways..

"Your day. How did your day start in kabul. will this morning. I went to meet up with interpreter. That i've been following in touch. With how are you. He's someone who worked for the united states. He were the special forces and had one of these cases was hoping to be evacuated to go to america because he's afraid it actually fled kandahar before the fall of kabul fearing for his life and since then has been trying the airport basically every day without success long. Has it been since you sell your family. How many days almost no good two months. He told me today that he was bringing his family for from canada har- his wife and children. And that they were gonna make one final attempt at the airport in the closing days of the evacuation And so we sat and talked and then his family came from canada. Hara was an emotional moment for him. They were afraid obviously because they'd been seeing the news of the horrible situation the airport but they were determined try. It really wanted to go. Oh so you saw. You saw the entire family kind of reunite there. Yeah i saw them roll up in a taxi and he was obviously emotional so after they'd come and i had met them i cons left them at the place. They were staying and they told me that they are planning to try the airport that afternoon. Only one aggregate. They said they were playing. Try aggregate And when you say aggregate that's a particular point of entry into the airport in kabul exactly. There's several points of entry that are controlled by different groups. Somebody the taliban by marines and buy back alicia and people are just of trying different gates on different days depending on what they've heard whether they can get through so at. What point in the day. Matt did you find out that something had happened at the airport sometime after five o'clock and i was sitting at my desk my room with a window open. And i heard this kind of pop and you know when you've been living in a place that kabul for awhile. You become attuned certain noises. I mean my house is more than two miles away from the airport but still something about maybe notice it. And then i had dinner plans that night with a with the mayor of kabul and he called say that he had to cancel. Because something's going on. And then. I got a message from someone else. Another interpreters saying there had been a complex attack which is like a combination of a suicide bombing in gunfight at abbey gate That same gate that the family said they were headed towards exactly so all you knew at this point is that something very serious has happened at the hamid karzai international airport at applegate. Yeah and you know this has been something that we've been dreading now for for days. There have been reports that isis was going to try to do a suicide attack against the airport. Right so it was immediately. You know the first thing sprang to mind. This is finally happening. So i came downstairs and call them a housemate. Jim hoyle brooke photographer times. Like hey jim. Are you hearing this in his again. This attack of the airport. Yeah so do you wanna go check it out. Yeah so we jumped on my motorcycle which is usually how we get around with. These things are happening because it's much easier to get through traffic and we started riding toward the airport. And you know it's a route. We know quite well because we've been going there lot. Can these past days and as we got closer we could tell was up. What do you mean you could just see the way that people kinda gathering clusters inside the street talking. The traffic was kind of empty. And as we got close to the game because the the taliban were very agitated they were kind of beating people to clear them out of the roundabout and we drove straight into it and several journalists and they actually let us through so we got through the first checkpoint and kept driving and then we're driving along the airport now. We could hear the sound of gunfire from inside and sirens. There's an ambulance came up behind us. We let the ambiance go ahead and and then we want to go through this next checkpoint but the taliban guard there is saying no. You can't go any further so we just stayed there. I started talking to people who are coming now out of the site. And what do the people around you say had just happened. They said that there have been a bomber. There have been a suicide bomber in the crowd on that a lot of people have been killed but some foreign soldiers have been killed. A lot of civilians have been killed now. The area that we're at this is. This is where there was a canal. People are waiting through and they said there was now bodies in the canal. Thing about these airport gates is that they designed basically to prevent car bombs and they have these really high concrete walls narrow lanes and when you have crowds trying to get through them which is not whether designed for the become his death deathtraps with at funnel people in and leave no avenue for escape so even just like given the normal crowds that have been happening at the airport of last week or so. You've had people trampled to death and suffocating so to have a suicide bomber go off in the middle of this like intense crowd of people Is just and as best. You could piece together. Why this location. I think the bombers wanted to get as close as they good to foreign soldiers in this is one of the places where afghans r- actually getting out and having their documents looked at by americans Just kind of the way it works is like you spend the whole day just fighting in the queue and pushing your way the front and then you have a few seconds to show you know whatever it is that you have to soldiers in in the hopes that they'll let you through and i mean that's the tension that right now is that on the one hand you have like tens of thousands of people just hoping the airport many of them don't really qualify for evacuation. Just anybody who thinks a chance to go to the west but on the other hand is incredible pressure to get the right people out to get citizens to get green card holders to get afghans out within a few days remaining right so as a result. I think you had this perfect recipe for disaster. Where you had mobs meeting. Foreign soldiers have close. And what do you do next will at this point. We're like well we with dangerous day here because there's always the risk for like a secondary attack ray and we can't get any closer so.

"A congressional delegation. That was trying to do the same thing. They luckily got turned back. This is okay. So i can't stand photo ops and so this a glorified by the way. They applies to everybody. So fred thompson. was a former actor and senator from tennessee and he used to drive up To campaign and went in his limo and get into a red beat up pickup truck and go around. The press. never told anybody that he actually came in lil they would do the photo op with with the red pickup truck and by the way both the left and the right win they go to the border and they just look at the border like. Oh this is the border now. I know yeah. I already know. I don't need to go and look at a piece of dirt and go. This is the border right. It's just a photo op. And then when they go to war zones is the biggest photo op of all. I mean mccain lindsey graham joe lieberman. They love that crap. They'd always go to the struggling break. Everybody gets to write the perimeter girl lockdown. Who don't want any. They probably cost people's lives trying to do extra protection and security for them. And and like what myers says here. We need to see with our own eyes. What are you seeing with your own eyes. Are you walking around kabul. Don't be absurd. What are you seeing with your own eyes. No you're going to be any and by the way reporting is that they largely stayed inside the building which is good. They should say inside the building. What did you see inside the building except for molten claiming that he went outside like a superhero pulled people through the gates right. It's just it's politicians being at their cheesiest and then finally molten. There's one good piece of news here. Because molten in the last couple of decades would've been a classic establishment democrat and this cheesiness woulda worked so they love veterans who are pro business and take endless corporate cash and that's south molton so like if he ran in the one thousand nine hundred ninety two thousands for president which by the way. You probably don't remember. But he ran for president. Twenty twenty okay. If he'd run a two decades before that or just a decade before that he would have been celebrate south. Molton who knows who's been to war zones. He's taking pictures there and he'll give business interests anything they want. This great south molton is but now that stuff is so outdated you have to be more sophisticated be a bit smoother liar like buddha jr right and so when multi ran for president you know what he got in every poll zero percent now remember that. The margin of error is about three percent of normal poll. So there's some chance molten might have been pulling it negative three percent. That's how unpopular he is so. Please spare me your opinion. Ps i know there is no such thing as data three percent. You get it all right. We gotta take a break when we come back we'll Move off foreign policy for bid and talk about How rhonda santa's thinks that the administration can learn a thing or two from his leadership his leadership he claims on kovic nineteen. Come right back. Jiang it with you guys. We have normal bonus. Oh for members tonight as we always do but Next week we're going to have asked me anything So if you remember at producer or higher level to your three or four You had to ask any question. You wants to go to the community tab and make sure that you participate in that because that's one of the privileges that you have the join button below isn't just for joining it's also for upgrades. So you could upgrade to that level to ask questions so hit that button below the youtube video when if you're watching this live thank you or caspar. As the state of florida continues to be one giant hot spot for corona virus the governor of the state rhonda santa's has decided to claim that president joe biden could really learn a thing or two from his wonderful leadership in responding to the pandemic. Let's hear what he had to say. You're just now the new enemy of the state president biden's going after you harder than the. How were you governor. Ron disentis prepared to handle. That won't be standing up against his failed policies at the border his field. He said he was going to end. Cova did he hasn't done that We are the first state to start the treatment centers for monoclonal. Antibodies having great success with that. That should have been a bigger plan. Bigger part of this whole response throughout the country from the beginning but at the end of the day. I think he's trying to find a to distract from the failures of his presidency and so he thinks that he can attack florida sometimes the attacks texas because we're republican states. Now it's incredible. I mean florida currently is number one in the country in terms of corona virus related hospitalizations and rhonda santa's the governor of that state looks at that situation and he's like great success. He's borat borat. Is the governor. Florida complete and utter moron. Why don't we take a look at what that great success looks like That is the state of florida and the reason why everything is in dark. Red is because you see kovic cases spiking in every single part of that state all right. So let's take a look at how florida looks compared to the rest of the country. That florida tends to be a lot redder than the rest of the country. And the red of course Indicates higher numbers of new cova cases. But you know brought to santa's looks at that. Thanks great success. Great success i mean look. We're doing these new treatment. Centers it's working how encouraging the residents of florida to get vaccinated. But i forget rod to santa's only does that for his wealthy donors who he ensured he ensured. He got the vaccines too. I that was lakewood ranch and palm beach which will get to in just a second jake. I can't help myself. I show one more thing. You look at this list of states with the highest number of hospitalizations. Florida.

"All of a sudden. Tytypk j. uber antica sparing with you guys giant head. You know it. I know the american people know it obviously serious dues that we're going to have to start with which is afghanistan and then we'll do the whole range because that's what we do at. Trt artistes called the news. Go all right. Twelve service members in the kabul airport have died following to allege bombings near the kabul airport Isis has taken responsibility. One of them has been reported as a suicide bombing. It's likely that the second is also a suicide bombing. Now this has to do with the fact. That of course you have america and its allied countries trying to evacuate Citizens american citizens in the case of the us and also Afghan allies of ours out of the country We need the cooperation of the taliban enable to in order to do that and the taliban is supposed to be providing these security checkpoints to ensure that Some various figures including suicide bombers. Don't enter the airport now. One of the bombers got caught at the checkpoint and decided to you detonate the bomb anyway But one individual one isis fighter Did manage to get through the taliban's checkpoint and a during a press briefing today. Generals are saying that the us is relying on the taliban to do some of the initial security But they say that some of them are good at providing not security. some are not as good so it doesn't appear at the moment that the taliban just allowed the suicide bomber to get through It seems that you know whoever was at that. Checkpoint obviously didn't do a good job in ensuring that the person was who he claimed he was so go ahead so that that gets one of my point so right now of course as usual cable news. Y'all near the top of their lungs. That all joe biden's fault now. If you watch the early you know that we think a lot of things are joe biden salt but this i just don't think did this is one of them the the bombing in particular right. So have they not done a good job of planning their exit. Yes but that least the second point which is the same as The blame for the bombing so to. Cbs's nancy cortez is there. White house correspondent. She came out today and said this quote the worst day of the biden presidency. So now look is some ways. It's true a lot of service members died and obviously this bring out his poll numbers but the politics and the policy the reality of people not being able to get out etc right on the other hand. Well isn't it. Also the worst day for the pentagon i mean. Somebody let him through the check point. Maybe it was taliban person originally remember taliban isis. Our enemies have to remind people that i'll thousand times right and and and maybe it was somebody on the ground for us right now. I'm not blaming the folks that had to stop the bomb at the last second nearly impossible. But if you're saying that and this happened to social media. I said look. Why are we blaming the pentagon so what the pentagon totally faultless. But it's all the president's fault. Why are we blaming the intelligence agency. The you wanna to blame them. Great i agree okay but if you just want to say no and in fact of course somebody respondents said no how the pentagon possibly know what was going to happen on the ground. Well how could biden. How can you say that biting. Should've known but none of the generals should note. This should know intelligence agency should know but somehow magically the president should know. Can i jump. In real quick because factor the matter is the pentagon and biden specifically did know that there was a threat by isis. Which is what they had been repeating over and over again this week because there were people of course trying to flee the country so people are trying to get into. The airport biden has warned a american citizens on the ground in afghanistan. Please don't do that because it creates more chaos in the situation and we're worried about isis fighters targeting Us citizens and our allies as we're trying to do these evacuation efforts and so the warnings were there of course. They didn't know that there was going to be very specific attack on this day. And it was going to be carried out the way it was but they had intel indicating that there were some serious threats. And i think that the commentary that you see whether it be on cable news or on twitter it tends to be very black and white like everyone's looking for a scapegoat right and i understand the human desire to find the scapegoat but at the same time getting troops out of afghanistan was always going to be a messy situation. Could biden have prepared better. I guess but no one's really provided specific examples of what the administration was supposed to do to plan the evacuation efforts better. We unfortunately unfortunately need the cooperation of the taliban who now has control of afghanistan and yes the taleban and isis. They're not friends they're not get along. They are enemies And so it's yeah so look the smart critique that is balanced and spread across all the people who deserve it is great. There's nothing wrong with that. Has the exit been smooth. Don't be ridiculous. of course it hasn't been smooth. Should you does the buck. Stop with the president. Yes pentagon if you blame all say they didn't do this right and obviously they didn't do nation-building right. Obviously obviously afghan military was not ready to stand up. The pentagon has been lying for twenty straight years. If you said like that no problem but if you pick and choose and the thing. I can't abide by dumb criticism. So biden has clearly has a deal with the taliban to let us out and not kill americans on their on our way out now people then criticize him for that deal in weird ways. They're like news your new deal with taliban so what he shouldn't have done the deal and the taliban would then be shooting fish in a barrel as we're leaving and killing all of our will. Why would that make sense. Who use your talk. Your by bombing the alabama now. But then they would murder every american in afghanistan. That isn't already at the airport. And it's about fifteen hundred. Americans let alone the people who work with us. Who are afghans. Please try to be smart. Now that's what i love about our audience. Our on his understands that. But god when you look at cable news owed. Oh don't do both ben. Bed always suspected taliban beds so they must be working together. No you schmucks. Isis and taliban hate each other. And you've got to do with deal with the taliban if you want the safest exit possible and is it going to be perfect..

"Washington post this is post reports. I'm martine paddlers. It's tuesday august twenty fourth. The taliban announced this morning they are no longer allowing afghans to enter kabul airport in evacuate. They say it's more important for afghans to stay and help rebuild the country trying to control the situation. It is still unclear what that will mean for afghans outside the airport. Who have plans to leave. We're currently on a pace to finish by august. The thirty first the sooner we can finish the better. Each day of operations brings at restore troops but the completion boggles thirty. First depends upon the taliban's continuing to cooperate allow access to the airport for those who were transferred transporting now no disruptions to our operations. The white house said today that they are seeking to stick to the august thirty first deadline to withdraw though biden has asked the pentagon to come up with a contingency plan. The evacuation aren't finished by the deadline. Later in the show were talking about the effort to get people out of afghanistan including sending in a top. Us spy but we also wanted to talk to someone who's choosing to stay in afghanistan. Despite the danger hell high mahbouba this is rina. Yes hi how are you are you. I'm good i'm good. Thank you so much for taking this call. Do you mind if i record this conversation up. Liz record no i on my okay. Great on monday.

Ouch i am executive director of afghan women skills development program. We'd shelters in afghanistan. Muga is a prominent women's advocate. She pushed to have women negotiators at the table. During peace talks with the taliban she's also on the board of the afghan women's network. We asked her what it was like to see her country fall to the taliban people are dying frankie will. It's kale pick. People are dying. People are shooting at people. There are thousands of people by the walls and by the gates. And buy everything women are being hauled over those huge concrete walls. And it's like it's like it's so horrible horrible and nobody can get in and then people receive phone calls. Okay come on over again coach. And they take all of their belongings. Whatever it is whatever impact kids and with the hoping their hearts and they go and they get into the airport and then they have to wait over there for six days sometimes the banks. The banks have been closest since the day taliban king which is about a week of fifteen to focus. So it's been eight days we had. There's no money city and whatever money we had we are spending and we are going to be running out of money shortly. We are going to be running out of food. You're fifty.

It's not clear if the military will continue to make similar rescue missions estimates have ranged as high as fifteen thousand. us citizens left in afghanistan. Taliban leaders continued to make sporadic public comments. But they're not expected to make many announcements on their new government until that august thirty first deadline passes taleban leader moolah abdul ghani bought a dr is in kabul for meetings with the group's leadership. He negotiated their twenty twenty peace deal with the trump administration. It's been more than a generation since.

Although there are other foreign troops there british contingent German troops as well could have access in some degree of control there but of course anybody who has a private flight or private airlines or other groups want to be able to use this airport because it's the only way out if you're a kabul private citizen or if you're a private organization trying to bring people out we know early on when the. Us took control the airport. They shut down. Those private flights for my understanding was relatively brief period. I understand that are happening again. But how are they fitting into. This picture is truly limited channel. I know a lot of international airlines and things are not operating. we're primarily talking about charter. Flights what is the mentally of routes out that are being channeled through kabul airport or is it really at this point primarily a us jian foreign government dominated channel so we can look at the public. Statements said the government. The us government has made press secretary kirby yesterday briefing reiterated numbers that he's been sharing recently. Which is that the. Us military has the capacity on the military side alone to five thousand people a day. They had he said in yesterday's press briefing that the airport inside of the airport is completely secured by the us military. These statements and yet we only moved two thousand individuals yesterday. If we keep this pace we leave three thousand. A day of vulnerable populations in kabul with no means of exit So that's i. That's what's happening on the commercial side in briefings pentagon briefings yesterday. They also mentioned that will military flights were moving out on the north military side of the airport. Commercial flights were inconsistent. We also know that. The faa said yesterday that they would permit u. s. airlines to fly in and out commercial flights to kabul airport. So we have that kind of spoke but we getting on the ground information. The commercial flights are running currently. We don't see evidence that that is the case that consistently that is the case in these certainly needed. We look for private efforts to to get commercial flights for the citizens who have visas because we have people with visas at the airport unable to fly because they can't get to brew inside of the court and and it's not clear whether in addition the commercial flights would be there for them to take camille. Let me come to you. You know a lot of the barrier. We've been talking about so far are in very different. Circumstances very familiar wants to people working in immigration refugee law the visa process the iv process. And these are processes. That in the best of circumstances can take a very very long time Which are a lot of administrative and bureaucratic barriers in place. How are they interfacing with this. Very urgent situation on the ground are they simply still being an obstacle. Are there efforts being made district invent some of these I know kristin zana both hit on the need to essentially move these processes further steps down the process people to a safe location and then going to pursue these legal processes. I'm but what steps have been taken in the current status quo to try and alleviate some of the pressures of those or are they still just a big bureaucratic bottleneck. A i mean. I think you you hit the nail right on the head with that. I mean that's sort of the almost the crisis to come or or the potential crisis to come because this is about to collide with a very broke in very decimated very under resourced and pressured immigration system. Which is already by designs. Set up to make anybody especially including those who are seeking protection fail. That i think is the next step i mean right now the effort of the last however many days or hours at this point right since saturday is really to get everybody out And chris sort of hinted at that earlier. We don't want the military planning the agent at the airport. They just get everybody out and we'll triage and we'll figure out what's going to happen. Next in terms of the legal needs and the legal status is that they need to enter the united states and remain in the united states. But the more we lean on third countries the more problematic. That is a lot of obvious reasons you know. We saw a very very small window into what that might look like with the roughly twelve hundred. Who made it to fort lee before before the crisis really hit before kabul fell and the taliban regained control of the country that started susanna in. Chris can correct me but for memory started late july into early august and those were individuals were very much in the league stages of the visa and also many of those individuals were not the principal applicants. They were family members. Who are coming to the us to join. Principal africans many of whom are already in the us and even that was quite confusing. Although i did see immigration agencies take a more affirmative role in the process actually going to fort lee to process applications and trying to speed things up as much as possible in a way that i've never seen before and that certainly is probably not scalable. You know to the levels that we need it to be now. So i think a lot of the answer to that question hinge on how many come to the us directly or potentially you know there are so options available in us territory such as guam and such versus how much we're going to rely on their countries and what happened to those countries but the us immigration system is designed to lose people it is designed to confuse them and make it hard for them to understand what the expectations and their requirements are. There's no right to an attorney in immigration. Certainly not in in what we call the affirmative process. Which has this process rate when you're asking for our benefit not when you're defending yourself in immigration court and when you're asking for benefit you have no tune attorney whatsoever even when that you pay for so you're lucky enough to find one in time or you're forced to go through the process on your own and that's in a normal circumstance incredibly confusing and in okay. Arctic situation like this not helped by things for example the department of state putting out what they're calling an entry pass to the airport right now for individuals who are trying.

"Who would say that. They don't have the right. So let's say that the plague is back and we we can't control it. That killed seventy five to two hundred million people so busy. University's supposed say oh. Yeah come on with the playing no problem. You don't have to wear a mask you don't have to be vaccinated. Just play smeared all over the rest of us. Are they allowed to then spit on us to refer freedom freedom. Well but in a in a situation where you're contagious. Disease breathing on us is actually similar to spitting on us. And so that is. That's just a fact and it's uncomfortable fact true right and so this is not the plague but over four million people have died and especially in modern times. That is stunning absolutely stunning number. And in america over six hundred twenty thousand people have died if you're a university and you're trying to stop that spread on your campus your negligent and an incompetent and so of course. This is the correct decision by the quick note on freedom. I think that the right wing agree right. Wing would agree that one of the guys who gave us. Freedom was george washington one of the founding fathers and the general of the of our army at one freedom He vaccinated his troops because the british had already had an outbreak and were pretty much immune from smallpox. At the time and he had an and backseats back there were brutal and and really risky and you vaccinated is whole army anyway. Otherwise we're gonna lose the british and never have american the first place so read history. And then finally amy coney barrett and i think you headed is she's in this way in the case of the university exactly sure but the very next is going to be corporations and so when it comes to corporations this she dismissed it so out of hand she did not bring into the entire court and she said they could not win on the facts no matter what basic reasoning nori like. It was as much of a rejection as you could possibly have on the supreme court and one of the reasons is because these conservative judges or just pro business. There john they. They are in favor of giant corporate. She's that's why they were selected by corrupt politicians and so when corporations come and say we're gonna do vaccine mandate trust me to bear it in all of the almost all other right wingers. Yes sir absolutely sir. Corporations can do anything they want sir. And that's a preview for this exactly and look governor greg abbott of texas should take note because he has implemented a an anti Basically he has banned mask mandates now. The dallas school district has decided to ignore his band of the dallas independent school district in texas will maintain its mask mandate for students. Despite texas is supreme court ruling that upheld governor abbots ban on such measures. So who knows if this case is going to make its way to the supreme court but at this point we have precedent based on the way that judge amy coney barrett supreme court justice. amy conybeare. it handled The indiana university case. So we'll see what happens. Yeah and by the way in the bonus episode for the members. I'll tell you story of my kids first day of school and a little bit of drama. That happened there in la Hit to join biden below. You're watching on youtube and you can get that bonus episode But i just think about what Avid is saying in texas. If you've decided that your school is going to be safer with mass. I'm not going to let you make that decision band. Yes i'm going to ban you from being safe so now imagine you had your kids in that school and the people running. The school said were positive. They'd be safer if everybody was wearing mass and a bunch of people said no. We don't want to. We want to endanger your kids. This is a recipe for disaster. And these are the guys who said oh. We're in favor of local rule. Nope nope the minute. You disagree with local rule. You're in favor of basically what you would call tyranny. That ain't right and only forty five point three percent of texans or fully vaccinated one of the lowest facts vaccination rates in the country. So keep that in. Mind the worst outbreaks in the country and the most amount of deaths in the country. Texas really got this thing figured out keyboarding for see how many more people can die all right. That does it for our one. Stick around for our to where we will lighten things up. See you.

"Of an organization take news out of your goddamn name just called fox or foxe propaganda or fox lives or something and then we're okay with it okay. Then i get a your conservative. You're allowed to do media if you're conservative and you lie and we tell the truth and we battle over it and eventually we win. And that's what happens every time news news is it makes us selling and tv. Did the protests right out of nowhere. And t- antifa came in attack these guys when they're the ones that started in the first place. Now look as always. There's some right wing provocateur in there. That has one out of context video so the all the counter. Protesters perfectly peaceful. No that's why we're partly saying get out of there and you shouldn't be there in the first place let alone being aggressive in any way shape or form so we're fair we're honest about it. You think they're fair and honest about it. They took the big misleading videos and fox. News then makes it seem like. That's the whole story anna's right when you go to counter protests come on you like you know. Something's going to break out. And you know the media is going to frame it as you guys did it yet. You walk into that ambush exactly right so so frustrating all right look the last thing for me. Give last word to the members because he said a couple of interesting and funny things but But for me look guys worry. Man like yeah. Those are small groups there. But we're all getting at each other. Today's the first day of school parents against parents things are starting to devolve If it was just proud boys antiques. Maybe you know coordinated off and it just happens rarely et cetera. Now we're all starting to get at each other and it's because we can't stand them then their total lack of logic and they said well i get to spread disease on you know. That's not part of your freedom and they can't stand us they think. Oh good a free concert. They really believe that with all their heart and he believe we're coming after their kids at all sorts of insane conspiracy theories. How long is this powder keg gonna go before blows in a giant way and i'm super worried about it. I think it's only gonna get worse from here on out. But on a lighter note will end on the members to dot com slash joined to become part of the show Because we do. Read your comments from time to time Colorado blue blazer regular road in that field drop kick is a perfect metaphor for these jack holes totally Mister arrogance said they're also getting out of their anger issues that they're too proud to go to therapy for totally right to write therapy doing irrationally. No me do drop kick me full on. Asked me get feel really good about it but actually the best comment comes from nugenix who actually corrects us. And i like that too. You guys are in a sense. Our editors okay. I know i love it and you guys are great about it. Knicks let the record state that it is a failed roundhouse kick out. Thank you good correction. It's not it's not. it's an accidental. drop kick. he didn't mean a drop. Kick humanity roundhouse cake and he just fell on his ass. Thank you for the important lucky. If you're going to be attempting those roundhouse kicks you better work on that core. You know got got gotta have good balance and that guide no good balance maybe spend more time at the gym time at these ridiculous protests anyway. let's do one more story before we wrap up our first hour. Conservative supreme court justice amy coney barrett handed down a decision. That is shocking. Now this had to do with a vaccine mandate at indiana university and This case made its way all the way to the supreme court where students were hoping that the supreme court would block indiana university's vaccine mandate. But that is not what happened. Conybeare rejected an emergency request by a group of indiana university. Students who were seeking to block the school from enforcing a covert nineteen vaccine requirement for the coming semester. She denied the request without comment. And without referring the matter to the full high court for consideration. I have to be honest i. I am pretty surprised by that. Because you know the whole point of ensuring that you install these conservative justices is so they carry out this vision of america that's deregulated it's all about the individual. But that is not what happened here. Now look if we were talking about corporations. I guarantee you amy. Conybeare would vote in a way. That would not shock us. But let me give you more details. Lower courts actually declined also to block the policy saying the students were unlikely to prevail on claims that the mandate violated the constitution. And just to give you a one of the comments from a judge in the us circuit court of appeals. He's from the lower courts. Of course he argued university. We'll have trouble operating when each student fears that everyone else may be spreading disease. Few people want to return to remote education and we do not think that the constitution forces the distance learning approach on a university that believes vaccination or masks and frequent testing of the unvaccinated will make in-person operation. Safe enough now. The school states. That if you refuse to get a vaccine you you have to wear a mask at all times when you're on the campus and you have to submit To cova tests on a regular basis. But of course the don't like that which is why they made this big case in the first place so first of all easterbrook has right. He's actually story Judge and and one of the brighter judges we have whether you agree or disagree with this philosophy judicial philosophy and he's saying something really simple of course institutions have a right to stop the spread of disease at their students.

"On kanana when you guys a little bit more afghan and then we have other devastating stories all right so ted cruz decided to go after a cnn reporter. Who's on the ground in afghanistan. As she was reporting she mentioned the fact that there were afghans behind her chanting death to america but she also said that they seemed friendly at the same time. Now senator ted cruz response to that. Was is there an enemy of america from whom. Cnn won't cheerlead in mandatory burqas. No less okay. so why. don't we respond to that before we get to. Cnn's response to ted cruz. Because it seems as though. Ted cruz has a difficult time. Separating the disdain that citizens might have for a government versus the people of that said government right so the people who have to live under that government so i wouldn't want the afghans to judge me personally based on the decisions that are made by the american government. It's similar to how i feel about. Let's say the turkish government. I don't judge turkish citizens. But i certainly judge the turkish government and the actions that they take And it's just anyway but jay. Why don't you jump in before we get to see it then She's in the streets of kabul risking her life demonstrably. So it's obviously so and you don't want her to wear a burqa. You want what you want to wear miniskirt. You wanna hurt her waving american flag you what do you. She's a reporter. She's not a cheerleader. For republicans or for the american government that would be insane to ask her to do anything else. And by the way ted cruz your ass loves to flee whenever there's an emergency you're questioning her. She's a thousand times more brave than you've ever been on your best so please spare me and look. There's just the guy's a snake he he never you know disappoints you if you think he's going to go lower. He always goes lower. And so this profile encouraged by the way of course after trump a set his wife was ugly and his dad was a murderer phone bank for trump so sparrows any conversation about her incredible courage to report from that situation. Honestly i when i think of the most cowardly members of congress senator. Ted cruz is way up top on that list. I mean we're talking about a man. I the example. You gave perfect jank someone who can't even stand up for his own immediate family and immediately cowards so the likes of donald trump who later in his presidency turned out to be nothing more than a bunker boy and then let's move on to cnn's response. Because i think that they actually hit them. Right word hurt they. They argue that rather than running off to cancun in tough times. Clarisa ward. that's the cnn. Reporter is risking her life. To tell the world what's happening that's called bravery instead of retweeting. A conspiracy theorist misleading soundbite. Perhaps your time would be better. Spent helping americans in harm's way yes..

"It's monday august sixteenth and before we even left the country. Afghanistan is now under taliban control. We start here. A twenty year saw that comes to an end as fighters take over kabul this the taliban of one game over our team is on the ground as a new era takes. Hold asking how president biden's predictions unraveled. It's back to school season unless your classmates already have ovid are i use are full. Our children are getting airlifted. Out of harris. County would an alarming wise and child hospitalizations. Tell us about the delta variant. And just because they're tough to find doesn't mean they're not the biggest wildfires in the world. There's a fear that as it continues you get into the sort of feedback where it gets harder and harder. The earth is getting hotter. So what happens when the birth below. You is made of ice from abc news. This start here here. I'm brad mielke tally. Bon takeover of afghanistan now inevitable. It is not. This was president biden in july at the white house less than six weeks ago as he was. Withdrawing troops from afghanistan and the afghan troops have three hundred thousand well equipped as well as any army in the world and an air force. The natural concern of course was won't the american withdrawal empower. The taliban and biden was dismissive. Where do they go from here. That the jury is still out. But the likelihood there's going to be the taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely again. This was not even six weeks ago last week. The taliban took control of afghanistan's third largest city. Herod's they took over the second largest city can to heart. These cities are not close together. The taliban that was over running everything and eventually within a few days the only question was could the afghan government hold onto. Its capital of kabul. Will yesterday we got the answer to that question. Helicopters and black smoke visible american diplomats including the ambassador evacuated to the airport at least five hundred staff leaving the country so far the embassy shuttered the flag coming down in the span of less than twenty four hours. The city that the us entered nearly twenty years ago fell back under taliban control. We are taking you to the epicenter of all this morning. We are on the ground in kabul. Where a senior foreign correspondent ian panel has been taking all this with his own eyes. Ian four days ago you and i were talking about kandahar asking whether kabul could ever fall in weeks or days. What has happened since then. Yeah i mean wouldn't incredible week certainly over the weekend of first of all they take herat this big western city then. They take canada the second largest city in the country. Then there are only really to hold outs missouri sharieff in the north jalalabad just to the east of the capital suddenly missouri sharieff which was supposed to be the big hole. Doubt it was weather. Resistance was going to be mounted against taliban essentially cave to the taliban and jalalabad they handed over power to the taliban without a shot being fired and by the time we landed in kabul on sunday morning it was only kabul left pentagon tonight has now revealed it as sending three thousand american troops back into kabul to help remove a significant number of us embassy personnel as the taliban now sweeps across the country became defacto that very morning the last standing major city in the country full and we heard the taliban were applegate's and then of beans choices. Let this before suddenly panic and rumor-mongering starts to set and paranoia and these dangerous things. Suddenly suddenly people think that they seem them. In the city. Police stopped to abandon. That men in uniform starts take off those uniforms and on local dress when finally we got a message from the taliban who said we are outside the gates of the city. We're not going to go into the city per with sending a delegation to the presidential palace. At which point the writings on the wool. This is over. They are able to drive up to the presidential pilots meet with the presidency and senior political leadership then surely all better off the taliban and their backers should know that force is not the way to compile enough one to set mission later emerges the president ashraf ghani the man who is held out all this time refusing to elections refusing to meet with the taliban refusing to move out of the way refusing to admit the town of. I'm gonna win. He's left the country we and he left the country and because he thinks he's gonna get killed or kidnapped her. What well we've just had an explanation from him as to as to why. He said he left the country. He left the country to protect the rest of the country. Well he's number. Two was immediately going taking twitter. Issue video statements Essentially accusing betrayal. How madonna nazis taliban fighters behind the desk of the presidential palace. The taliban are in a process of some kind of provisional government no be some form of elections or tribal meetings where they will decide what the future government is but make no mistake. This is it. The taliban have one game over. There's no more debates about what is going to happen. The future afghanistan the taliban sweeping to power the tana. Bana here. they're in town. They're at the doors. We and then in. I know that the us has been withdrawing troops but we still have people in the country right like our american diplomats or even servicemembers. Are they about to get taken hostage. And they've got to get killed. What are the. What are the risks for americans there. No it's one of the width things. That's happening at the moment and again the taliban would have you think about them have been very politically savvy about this. We had a very good conversation with the leader of the taliban today. And they're looking to get this ended and we're looking to get it ended ever since the us announced its withdrawal. They've not attacked. Us troops pulling out. Given that american troops. America is the great nemesis straps all of this They stood to onside. Allowed the americans to leave knowing that that would allow them to get to this point where they were. Empowering inch of these provincial capitals fall. i've been to probably every single one of them with our soldiers and marines over the years. And i have talked to many of them in the past few days. Many are horrified horrified. Mostly because we're leaving afghan partners afghan interpreters and those who helped the us behind and those soldiers and marines feel very helpless about that. So even as i'm talking to you come here in the background. There chinook helicopters constantly ferrying people back and forth to the apple c. One thirties transport aircraft commercial aircraft ferrying. Us diplomats civilians minute scenes of total chaos at the airport. I have a friend and afghan friend. Who's trying to get out with his family today. The traffic was so bad. You had to get out the calm. And you've seen this in the movies to get out the car with his family ditches luggage and they will have to run to the apple and in the end. The airport security abandoned their posts of the security situation deteriorated. There was some kind of skirmishing some fighting going on a live ended up having to retreat in that the now hiding in a different location in kabul these people who run the fifth of their lives. So how did this happen so quickly. What we've been told that this would be orderly. Were americans lied to were was our intelligence just way off about the taliban capabilities or did the taliban somehow get way stronger.

"Dr Kabul and Lord and lady. Thank you. Yeah. I just had a question about the report yesterday about that vaccine. I can't remember the name off the top of my head. But it's in the now on the final stage of testing. No, it's just in the preliminary stage of test testing, talk a little bit about that. I shouldn't sure you've looked into that. Dr Kabul, the Moderna Yeah. Pharmacy pharmaceutical company, and they're testing that they're doing. Yeah, they had about 40 patients in phase one that they have found they all Antibodies. They developed antibodies similar to somebody that at the viral infections now they're moving to phase two or the next phase, which will have 30,000 patients enrolled. And see if they can develop immunity again. The hard part's whether you develop handed BIS makes you immune. We don't know yet again. I think those 30,000 people Being in the world. It will take time to enroll them will take time to get results and again. I don't know if we'll have a vaccine available in six months or 12 months or 18 on hopefully results positive and there's a vaccine available. Again. If you look at lab testing currently, you think that that would be dialed in and we'd have 20 million pets today of elbow now, but that's still behind a ball on terrible. So, you know, I know Wall Street's optimistic about that I can to be a little cautiously optimistic that The reality of these things are slow in arguing. How did they So so when they let's say they do the 30,000 people and they give them the vaccine. Do they do? They then exposed them to Corona virus or how do they How did they find out if they're immune? Yeah, that would be the next step. So you create you try to create immunity and about exposure. And then you have to expose down to the virus directly and see what happens. Fairly detailed anything like their Marines. Alright, Thank you. Thanks. Thanks Pretty. I'm not gonna volunteer for that..
