"I'm marco werman you're with the world it is good to have you here. This friday airless out of kabul continued today just one day. After bombings rocked the area around the airport. Well over one hundred people are dead including thirteen u s servicemembers. The white house said today that another terror attack in kabul is likely in the next few days will be the most dangerous period to date for the us mission evacuating people fleeing taliban rule najibullah. Richie is a correspondent for the pbs documentary series. Frontline he is on the ground reporting in kabul najibullah. Can you start by situating yourself in relation to the news. Where were you when these bombs went off yesterday when i was virtually around the airport when a fires explosions as happened and then i started to to towards My my hotel which was like a about two kilometers away. But i i've seen the people were panicking icing the traffic people running everywhere but they didn't know which direction but they were trying to save themselves. I should mention that loss of these people who they supposed to go to to get either of the plane like the us played or kennedy's or whatever they're mainly came from different provinces and most of them are not familiar with with kabul city on most of them are sleeping around the park around the airport for days and nights and then as you know the second explosion tear the four hundred. I which was nightmare like that especially the first one was really huge and the entire city was shaking. Well let me ask you about those other explosions You said there were three. Four and five We've been reporting on to at the airport and there have been some reports about other explosions to tell us what you know. All explosions were were around the airport. Just the fifth one as the taliban is spokesman announced immediately after the fifth explosions said this explosion will something inside the airport and the american forces were were trying to destroy some of the at belonging So this has nothing to worry but it was. It was huge. It was around midnight last night. So that's what you were feeling in the center of the city. Yes my door. Basically shaking like my colleague in the same style they were media calling me. What is this this. is this happening. So so what's happening at the airport today from your position in the city centre. Are you able to see or hear planes taking off well to be honest. Personally i didn't want to take a risk. I didn't want to go nearby. And even when. I asked that taxi driver if he can get to the airport. Say i'm sorry if you gave me even a thousand dollars i can go well. They refused to go there. Yes so that's the scene at the airport. Still very troubling. How does it compare to what's happening in kabul city center where you are. I'm two kilometers away. You cannot see anyone walking on the road a few cars crossing at the moment. Yeah and shops are mainly closed and people are scared rate. Women are have you seen any women outside zito today. I didn't see anyone except a couple of my female journalists. We've been to emergency ospital to see about the injured and the dead bodies of last night basically which was horrible which was horrible. It's more than more than what they have been reported. Basically it's could be around handed. Seventy plus died. The eighth of hospitals told me they got those type of bodies more than under seventy class including those thirteen americans which they don't know either accepting or more we don't know because it was inside the airport so this was a report which we explored from inside the spittle ducey taliban fighters in the streets patrolling loss of places. Actually there stopping every car their chicken like they have checkpoints almost everywhere not patrolling my going here there. They have a chick loss of checkpoints around the city basically. They're looking for isis member. But but the problem is the isis member looking the same as the taliban did all look the same and this is the big issue. They cannot find like they couldn't find the black and white. It's altogether it's all mixed up when president biden responded yesterday to the violence. He said we're going to hunt them down. Meaning the group that committed These explosions isis k. Where afghans paying attention to what biden said raise the squish into couple of ordinary afghans. He saved when the entire afghanistan was under their control. What they have done mapping when the taliban was capturing only few villages entitled country was under their control of their allies which was afghan gelman led the afghan now melted death melted with afghan ordinary people all the terrorist fighters all inside the living inside the afghan nation who they can be bomb who he will be killing too like they cannot do anything to them because now the people the taliban all look the same and they have the entire country. So it's it's not two thousand one when they bombed the taliban because at that time they knew basis now they don't have a specific base. You cannot find them in their basis. You're inside the cities they living inside the town with the people in residential areas did not have proper places where they can how they can hunt him. It's zero chance even more pressure for people to leave the country in a very uncertain phase. I mean we're hearing a lot about the people trying to get out of kabul najibullah. Have you been able to talk to afghans who are staying to hear what their concerns are right now. Well at the moment that people are still hoping to go to the poor somehow they they get the plane or somehow managed to get there but these days they are trying to especially today. They're trying to find another route either. Go toward iran border or either go towards to pakistan border. I'm speaking with nudge. Bullock qureshi correspondent for frontline on. Pbs is on assignment. In kabul nudge. Bulla you are afghan. You started your documentary. Work in afghanistan before moving to the uk in two thousand and two just after the taliban was routed in the us invasion. You've also been in and out over the past two decades so you have the time lapse view but what is it like being there now as a taliban retex power well as i said many times before i've seen everything in my eyes and everything went through which i was witnessing off and i was here in afghanistan when the former governor was here and the taliban was bench of group and they took over and then the us through came in two thousand and one i was.

"Welcome to politics weekly. I'm just gal. Got chief political correspondent for the guardian. Nobody wants afghanistan once again to be a breeding ground for terror. And we don't think that it's in the interests of the people that afghanistan that it should lapse back into that that state that pre two thousand and one st at the weekend. Boris johnson and dominic robb cut the holiday short. Come back and deal with the situation in afghanistan. Parliament was recalled a couple of weeks early so mp's could discuss how to address the complete taliban takeover which seems to have caught many in government by surprise. So now what. As the defense secretary. Ben wallace continues to lay blame at the feet of the americans. What does this moment mean for the future of us uk ties. And why does all of that leave the afghan people. There's no better person to get the latest from the my colleague. Dan sabbagh the guardians. Defense insecurity editor. Dan this briefly. She can't get just summarize. What happened in afghanistan over the last two to three weeks. What we've seen is loves. The americans announced that they were going to pull out the remaining combat troops Half thousand combat troops had in the country. Nice agree to polite. Traders is is the most extraordinary high-speed collapse of the of the kabul government. We start with breaking news. Autobahn five his have reached the afghan capital kabul. Some folks say over the last two to three weeks while a ton of vitamin gradually positioning themselves in the previous months taking up positions more mo- positions in the countryside but as the us forces withdrawn over the last week or so a string of provincial capitals cities of fallen and then dramatically over the weekend kabul city of over four million people already without shopping. Fun as talent simply marched in until the presidential palace. That's guy back a bit from from the present day before there was any mention of any kind of negotiations with the taliban before the troops came out. What was the british government's general approach afganistan. How's it how's it changed in the last eighteen years. I suppose more more specifically what's it been in the last five years combat operations for the for the british entered in afghanistan in two thousand fourteen. So those long phase where where where where the uk was as eager as it could be for a country of is to be engaged in the war and take the fight to to the taliban in in places like hell man that those stopped in twenty fourteen and the appetite for that kind of low conflict and with it. The loss of british lives over four hundred fifty british lives. The appetite for that was not larimore special costs from the general public. So britain's rose be more recently about training about stabilization ineffective about peacekeeping a low term a lotta of deployment less recently about seven hundred troops as part of a much wider nato mission of about seven thousand five.

"I would say that the one of the success stories of the country rich done the promotion and protection of human rights in continue to do the same work i think as as mike only set the thirty percent of the country will district is under control of the taliban but the people are not supportive of their presence. It used to be exchange of districts between the two conflict warring factions. But this time they are more rapid. It is concerned because we don't know at will happen. But the the consent of the people that more people displaced and it's a lot of violence which push the people out of their homes and the countries all the the people are older the poor and the the economy is not very cheap. So it is a concern. They're more displacement more poverty more tension and the on the issue of people uprising protection or supporting or standing against aliban. The problem is that it acquires a proper management as the previous speaker on the set. If it's not managed properly the people of amazon doesn't have a good experience with that kind of apprising and it. I hope it did. It will not create any ethnic and political tension between the people who are against taliban. But i think the the issue is that clearly it was not really am. The withdrawal was not the right time at least it should have done after a ceasefire between the division for political parties or different groups warring faction in the country. So that does not happened. Unfortunately and i think the other issue is that of course afghanistan. It should not be abandoned because we had the experience before which was the end up with the attack on the us soil and if that happened than it would be another disaster. Not only for the once put for everybody around the world. Dr sima samar. I wanted to get your response to the taliban spokesperson sohail. Shaheen talking about the taliban's position on women's rights on cnn. Just a few weeks ago. We are not against the basic rights opponent that is education and their work only because we are an islamic society. They have to observe the islamic hejab ellen. Now if you see go to the kabul city The women are observing job was entirely by themselves because they are the different culture up on culture and islamic culture. He was speaking on freight sakari. Gps on cnn. Dr sima samar. Can you respond to what he has said. And also talk about the Talks that are going on right now. In iran between the taliban and the afghan government to previously it was in doha. But that wasn't including the afghan government and where women stand and all of this on the on the standoff the of the taliban spokesperson that they respect the basic human rights. Why not all of the human rights not only education and their work and he s. He said that the athlon woman already respecting has dropped. and why. what is that problem. Actually and it's same thing that they said when they were in power in afghanistan and from one thousand nine hundred six to two thousand and one. I think they have to show inaction because the areas which is under control of taliban they have not shown this the changes that they claim that they have been changing they are respecting women's rights on fortunately women's or are beaten up and simple issues violating their basic human rights. That is one issue the second coin that the second that a question that you asked. I think that the tehran fox. You see that. There's no woman at on and in doha..

Like teenagers everywhere, and it's like you talk to these young girls in their funny They're they're brash they have. It's certainly a little confidence, but that's born out of survival, but also still fear in their eyes. Is it ever going to get better? Is it ever going to? I mean, I don't know what better is. I don't know what normal is on. America's not normal. It can it can it get better, though, for for the citizens of Afghanistan. Ah Richard of the the The problem is in Afghanistan after United States involving in Afghanistan. Eddie much every kind of situation. I mean, they tried to help the government how to govern. They tried to help like they're education's a system there. Universities. There. Media's Like right after the Taliban left. There was only one TV and when radio channel and right now I think we have 50 television and the hundreds of radio that's too bad. Public universities. And I mean stuff. 20 years ago, the kids who started going to school are graduated. Now they are government employees. There is that I mean, It is a much better it is much better. It's it's much, much better. In that hope and all that admiration and all of that When people come to United States our path guns come to United States and see this. Nice functioning country. That's what everybody wants for their country. Okay, And when things like this happening, they get a little bit, um, dis hearted and hopeless. So if you were national security advisor Tio, advisor to the National Security Council, the Richard each show What it What's the solution? What? What is you know the United States to stay in and definitely united states to stay in and and set a timetable. United States believe now, I mean, what's the What's the best avenue for? Let's say, you know, A long, long term future of your country. I I would definitely say that. Ah This is time toe. Bring An end to the war to bring those young soldier, men and woman and you're no forum back to their homes in their family. But in same time, half a number off soldier with their support the current government and continue with the P stuck, but not the way it's happening right now, Mr Richard as if it is right now. There is a big fear going on. There is All of these millions. Government employees do not know what's gonna happen to them. When the Taliban United States peace deal finish what gonna happen to their future? They've united State with all these superpower in all these The sources. They cannot bring Taliban toe a peace talk with their own people with your own Afghans, civilians in their government. What would happen to them in future? So that that is the big question is United States involvement in Afghanistan help with Ah Everything cool out there. Off course there is a very huge Ah difference. Richard, if I show you to different picture went from 2001 and one from today off Kabul City, off Mazar city off Jalalabad off Kandahar. You would be like, Okay, I know billion off Dollar went here. But a lot of changes come to those people to those The young people that you met in your radio show where they're in Santa Fe. There are millions of those young people with energy with with hopes for the future, and I think good things happened there. But what would happen after this deal in art? All this stuff going on? Nobody knows is Rocky. Ls there any Is there any danger that Isis comes back? Are they completely out? And you know when they're kicked out of Kandahar was at the end event. Are they still hanging around? And are there madrases are there is that? Is that a dangerous well? So Isis has been beaten very badly in Afghanistan. I could tell you this. The Afghan National Army beat them bad and I could tell you there was one big reason that they were beaten bad in Afghanistan because the Taliban were against them. And the Afghan government were against them, and everywhere they would show up. They would corner that they were last men's their stronghold war in Jalalabad in AA. And we would see reports that every day that they really did not shine very well over there in Afghanistan would they able to come back? If you do not right now, like you only have a security Richard and men cities you go 20 miles out of the city. You are not secure. In a situation like that. Everything is possible. There is a very big possibilities off Isis regroup in come back, and that's what happened when you don't have Ah, centralized government in and in a country not controlling by the army. We've been through that stuff in the positive. We have these experiences and I believe The history is repeating there again and again on us. All right. Last question. We'll let you go with what Kill heroin poppies is still a big issue. It is actually and it's growing badly and it's in the past. We would only grow it one season and I think recently they found new tricks. No, no, they have a simple season of puppies now. Yes. Genetically engineered Engineered? Yes, Yes, well, that's bad news.
