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

These are the stories that we're seeing from Kaiser Permanente the calls, we've received have involved Kaiser Permanente one story in particular is coming out of Fremont, Fremont, and that made a net that became national news. Listen, I I have I've known and have had friends who have worked at the Kaisers. In all levels, doctors, nurses, etc. And just tremendous professionals. But this is obviously cost cutting move some of your tuning and say, what are you guys you were talking about? So they have literally there are these robots that are oftentimes wheeled into the rooms we've heard from one particular caller said this is typical at night when staffing is a little bit lower in the ICU. You'll have a doctor at some location somewhere who's got each patient's chart and rather than going room to room to make the checks the rounds rounds, the the robot comes in and the doctor is there on a video screen and does the rounds that way. Patient has a question. There's the doctor to answer by way of like sky Ideo. Yeah. So again, obviously a cost cutting move. But whatever happened to doctor patient relationship. This is this is probably the most critical time in someone's life. And in some cases is the most critical time in their life. But the national story has to do with someone who was getting the life or death news. This was okay. Is he gonna make it or not doctors coming in good? Oh, good news praise Kunduz a robot the robot. Dr robot comes in. Here's this guy. He's in an office somewhere two-dimensional. Keeping them the word, and in this particular case, it was the word the guy wasn't gonna make it and the guy passed like two days later, four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred here on k so we're talking about that this morning's while seven twenty one time, I just found it really interesting that the nurses actually announced to the patients and the families that the doctor was going to make his rounds. And then this robot roles in like, why would you I like their make their leading people to believe something that they weren't expecting that. Like when you say, the doctor is gonna make us rounds will be in with you in a minute, you expect a human guy is going to come in to arms little jacket. Yeah. Face right.

So they can teach you the proper way to deliver the bad this. Yeah. Well, I mean, you'd think because it's I mean, potentially you're ruining someone's life. Well, yeah. Life is over giving them the worst news of their light and their family. How do you do this compassionately? How do you do this graciously and at the same time truthfully because you don't wanna cut any corners?

"It's a much more much larger screen that we're looking at here. And I think that to see it in simplistic terms as well, we've lose they take over. Let's hope that they do. Well, would be very simplistic. Good comments Marvin gob got set. Jones CSIS three responses one is. I mean, I think the media, and I say this in the media response in Afghanistan to a withdrawal is a bloody civil war. Multiple sides are well armed, and I think as we've already seen in not just in the south. But in the north parts of the west, certainly in the east there, there are well-armed, local militia groups that are willing and able to fight some may be more likely to ally with the Taliban some may not. But there are a lot of avenues for deterioration and bloodshed to is. I think you're right. When you look at the history of the country, and you look at where the neighbors today have are operating. Virtually all of them will provide assistance to the Afghan government and their local proxies. Whether it's it's with his Ahras or or militia forces in the west, including Dostam, including support from Iran, whether it's Indian support in various places or central Asian governments or or others that that you'll have multiple sides backed by their own outside supporters. So there's a proxy element. But I think the third point is as we look at Taliban operations in the past three years. A withdrawal is a huge morale blow for the government, particularly if if it's both a US a European departure from Afghanistan, and I would I would strongly suspect. If I were betting that what we'd see is a Taliban reattempt at a couple of cities controlling the whole country. It's a little what's going to be a lot more difficult, especially when faced with well armed militias, but taking a couple of cities and then using them as a domino. I think is a much more likely option. I mean, if the if the Taliban can capture Kunduz for a couple of days with US forces without them, they're they're gonna control Kunduz. I think you'll see them push on locker guy and Kalat, and and and Taryn code and a ruse gone. So I I that's where I'd say, I don't think that's naive to assess that they would do that. They've already tried. Without US and European forces. I think will likely succeed. Doing that across the country. That's a little bit more difficult. And I think that's why we'd see tell Ben growing control of a number of areas as the country. More broadly spirals into a really bloody war either of you ever. Yeah. Just adding on that. It's a great question. But he goes both ways that you're absolutely right about the lack of the Taliban is fully cohesive group, never mind. Isis K. I Connie group other groups that are that are both allied or adversaries on that side of the equation. What on the other side of the hand on the other hand there if the Taliban maintains reasonable degree of cohesion in central control after US withdrawal and government forces fracture, long, ethnic lines has ours. Have been mentioned are gonna be very unlikely to to sign any deal into a trust the Taliban back in power, you could see momentum shifting further towards the Taliban security forces fracture and retrenching around areas.
