"Can all stick together and a federal debt ceiling increase to avoid the first ever Moment to fault. President Joe Biden heading West visiting Idaho and California to serve a wildfire damage, arguing that the extreme weather calls for the climate change programmes in his spending plan. And while in California he's campaigning for governor, Gavin Newsom ahead of Tuesday's recall election. This from axis dot com Secretary of State Antony Blinken delivered and unwavering defense of the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan on Monday, insisting it was time to end America's longest war and praising the evacuation from Kabul as extraordinary. Blinken is the first senior official to testify on Afghanistan in the wake of the chaotic withdrawal. Here's part of his opening statement before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. And President Biden took office in January. She inherited agreement that his predecessor had reached with the Taliban to remove all remaining forces from Afghanistan by May 1st of this year. Part of that agreement, the previous administration press the Afghan government to release 5000 Taliban prisoners. Including some top war commanders. Meanwhile, it reduced our own force presence to 2500 troops. In return, the Taliban agreed to stop attacking US and partner forces and to refrain from threatening Afghanistan's major cities. But the Taliban continued. Relentless march on remote outposts, checkpoints on villages and districts as well as the major roads connecting them. By January, 2021. The Taliban was in the strongest military position it had been in since 9 11, and we have the smallest number of troops on the ground since 2000 and one As a result upon taking office. President Biden immediately faced the choice. Between ending the war. Or escalate. Had he not followed through on his predecessor's commitment attacks on our forces, and those are allies would have resumed. And the Taliban's nationwide assault on Afghanistan's major cities would have commenced. That would have required sentence substantially more U. S forces into Afghanistan to defend themselves and prevent a Taliban take all Taking casualties and with at best Aspect, restoring a stalemate and remaining stuck in Afghanistan under fire indefinitely. There's no evidence that staying longer would have made the Afghan security forces. Or the Afghan government any more resilient or self sustaining its 20 years and hundreds of billions of dollars and support equipment and training did not suffice. Why would another year another five another 10? Conversely, There is nothing that our strategic competitors like China and Russia, or adversaries, like Iran and North Korea would have liked more than for the United States to re up the 20 year war and remain bogged down in Afghanistan for another decade. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the ranking Republican on the committee, Michael McCaul of Texas, asked him about how the U. S will be able to monitor terror threats coming from a Taliban controlled Afghanistan. Now that U. S forces are no longer in that country, my last question very important. Bagram went down. The embassy went down and we went dark. We have no eyes and yours on the ground. We've lost intelligence capability in the region that includes Russia, China and Iran. As you know, this is a national security threat as China moves in for all I know they may take over Bagram Airbase. But this over the horizon capability. I believe exaggerated. It's not a viable option. It's too far away. Did you negotiate with countries like Beck, Istan or Tajikistan? To put an is our capability there in my last question? Is it true that President Putin threatened the president, United States saying he could not build intelligence capabilities in the region? Um, this is a This is an important question and one that in its detail and substance, I think we need to take up in another setting for redesign. No, that you very much appreciate. Let me just say this very broadly and you know this very well given your focus and expertise on these issues. The terrorist threat has metastasized dramatically over the last 20 years and its most acute in places like Yemen, like Libya, like Iraq, Syria, Somalia, and, of course, we have much greater and different capabilities 20 years ago in terms of dealing with that threat And in many countries around the world, we deal with it effectively with no U. S boots on the ground. Uh, we lost some capacity for sure. And not having those boots on the ground in Afghanistan. But we have ways and we are very actively working on that. To make up for that to mitigate for that to make sure that we have eyes on the problem to see if it re emerges in Afghanistan. Introduce something about it, but what I would propose, And if I could reclaim station, I would I would like to work with you because if we can't See what's happening on the ground. We can't see the threat. We can't respond to it. The threats only going to grow. It's gonna get worse. Not better. And we have to have that capability. Um, you know, uh, let me ask you one last question. We have these planes grounded at Mazar e Sharif. Um and the Taliban seems to be holding these points up. What are you currently negotiating with the Taliban? With respect to these Americans are trying to get out on these points and also are you negotiating with the Taliban? Man. On the issue of religious legitimizing them as it a real government. Not only us, but virtually, uh, the entire international community, including in a United Nations Security Council resolution has made clear what we expect and will insist on from the Taliban. Uh, if they want to seek any legitimacy or any support, and that includes it starts with freedom of travel. So we've been intensively engaged with Turkey and Qatar to get the airport in Kabul up and running again, which is now the case, and we started to get flights out last week with American citizens on board and with regard to Missouri Sharif, you're correct. There been charter flights, uh, there that have been there for some time. That have not been allowed to leave..

AK Colonel Club was briefing at the White House yesterday. Was She wearing her Soviet uniform yesterday are just around the house with the knee high hob nailed boots. Jen pass sake. Yesterday when being asked. I assumed by Peter Deuce him. Nobody else about these Americans stranded in Mazar e Sharif and the planes that are there that the Taliban will not allow to take off, although they have apparently allowed a Qatar airliner filled with Canadians to leave from Kabul, which is a different city altogether. They like Kabul now, like car bomb car Bull car bomb car Boom Caribou, Jen pissed AKI yesterday, saying the White House well, they're not in church of planes taking off since they turned the country over to the Taliban without getting Americans out. But they are in charge of whether planes land and they're not going to let them land. We don't have a role in preventing flights from taking off. We are not on the ground number of these planes. They may have a handful of American citizens. Are we going to allow a plane with hundreds of people where we don't know who they are to land on a US military base? No, The answer is no, No, they're not going to love. So if the planes do take off, the Biden administration is going to make sure that they have no place to land, which is to say you have so much fuel. You can only get so far. You got range and it's limited. There is a Republican congressman from Tennessee by the name of Mark Green. Mark Green is a medical doctor and a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, his the bundled package and he's talking about the refugees that have been brought here to the United States and to Virginia. And how they haven't been vetted and they they're at this base, and they can just like call a cab and lean leave any time they want. This is the Biden administration's plan. They're letting them leave. They can catch an uber and actually leave the base. They don't know exactly how many are even there so they can't account for someone if they don't return. Now, why would that be a problem? I don't understand why that says we've got refugees brought to the United States from Afghanistan, one of the leading terrorist states in the world, and they can call an uber. And leave the military base where they are currently being held in Virginia and just go away, and that's it because this is their plan, the Democrats and the Biden White House. Have a plan now at long last, and this is it. You can come here and you can just call an uber and you can leave. That's uh, that's amazing stuff. Did you miss the Trump rally recently? Or did you catch the Trump Rally recently? You know it. It means something. If you caught it, it means you were watching Newsmax. Every major. Every major cable news channel refused to carry the Trump rally. Except for Newsmax. Over five million Americans tuned in the Newsmax to watch the Trump rally.

"While there are limits to what we can do without personnel on the ground without an airport with normal security procedures in place. We are working to do everything in our power to support those flights. And to get them off the ground. Yeah, I don't really know what that means, because whatever is within their power is obviously not good enough has not been good enough for eight days. Taliban holding these people effectively hostage for reasons and goals that are not clear. I speculated as to a few of them, potentially But there's another wrinkle to this mark, and this is a Fox news exclusive that broke earlier. Our colleague Benjamin Hall, said that there's also American bureaucracy getting in the way in addition to the Taliban, saying, No, there's a bureaucratic red tape. Hold up as well. On our end. Listen to cut two for days Now we have been reporting on these planes sitting on the wrong way in Mazar e Sharif in the north of Afghanistan. With Americans waiting to bring them home but unable to leave well now leaked documents obtained exclusively by Fox News show that the State Department has refused to give them approval to land anywhere. In an email to retired Marine Eric Montavo, who charted these planes. The State Department says no charters are allowed to land at any D O D base. And most, if not all countries in the Middle Eastern region, with the exception of perhaps Saudi Arabia will allow charters to land you need to find another destination country and it can't be the US either. Okay, mark, so a few things to unpack there, Blinken statement saying. As of now, the Taliban won't let these people leave. And then the Fox News reporting based on emails that have been obtained by Fox. Showing that the State Department is saying chartered flights aren't Approved by our government to land anywhere even if they were able to take off And I guess the rationale is that they're worried about vetting people, and they don't have any personnel on the ground. To figure out who is actually getting onto the planes. Of course, they don't have people on the ground because we pulled everyone out before the evacuation was complete, and we didn't start the evacuation months ago like we should have. This just seems like sort of a purgatory for these people who are stuck and I keep Getting astonished. By the absolute impotence and incompetence and seemingly callousness and lack of urgency from the bite administration on all of this stuff. It's stunning. I mean, every day. I think it can't get worse than than it. Does. You know the the I don't know what's worse that the Taliban is holding them hostage. Or not letting the planes take off or that the US government is not letting the planes take off and come to do with basis. I mean, it seems pretty simple to me that if you would, if you can confirm that there are some Americans on those flights You let the flights land and then you secure the plane and you met the people, right? You know, what would we have done? If we were, if this is a plain name, and if we were a couple airport, we would have vetted the people at what was effectively a military base. That we had after the fact military base with lots of Americans around and all the rest of it. We were doing this up until up until a couple of weeks ago. And like, what's the difference? We're doing that in Kabul and doing it in Doha? I just don't understand. I just don't understand. And and the idea. You know what we don't? It's hard to do it because we don't have personnel on the ground. Well, why the hell Don't Jeff personnel on the ground? The president. The United States left these people behind. That's not an excuse. Because Ukraine you created that situation isn't just a circumstance you fell into right president the United States. Told us that he would not that he would extend the deadline in America would not pull out until we got all Americans out. And then they said that well, we got every We got everyone who we think wanted to get out. But now we know there are Americans who want to get out first. They said it was 100, you know, and now we've apparently 143 on the tarmac in Mazar. I'm sure they're more in the country don't even know how many There are. They laughed. He intentionally left them behind. He ordered the last plane to leave, knowing he was leaving Americans behind enemy lines. And then the and then the lack of person than the lack of boots on the ground. The lack of personnel on the ground is now being cited by the State Department as a reason. In emails. It's not like this is some report with that Fox has the actual emails. And it seems like blinking has basically confirmed this as well saying, Well, you know, it's a challenge, because yeah, we don't We have a paperwork problem. We don't have people on the ground. I don't understand Mark. Why we can't Get the people with correct paperwork onto a plane and let that plane take off or just get people onto these planes. Fly them somewhere. I'm sure we can convince some government to let those planes land. And then get State Department personnel who are no longer on the ground in Kabul because of the order of the president, the United States and the violation that promise get them to vet people. In a third country and at least get them the hell out of Afghanistan, where the Taliban is in charge. I don't understand. Mazar It's a 15 minute flight to his beck istan. I mean, right over the border country from which we had a military base, and we're conducting military operations throughout the gun to the global war on terror. I mean, send him to his beck istan, fly them literally across the border and met them there And then if people don't make it, walk, march them back to the border and send them back. If there are people who we don't want to let in, it's just the lack of will..

One hospital is because already become overwhelming new patients at a time when the pandemic is already strained the system, Fairfax County has transported more than 200 patients to and from the Dulles Expo Center, where the evacuees have been located, and it's been using county staff to keep track of their movements. Which is something that says the Fed should be doing and funding a leaked email. Meanwhile, suggesting the state Department is not is at fault for not getting more people out of Afghanistan. For days now, six planes have been sitting on a runway in the northern Afghan city of Mazar e Sharif, waiting to bring Americans home from the clutches of the Taliban. Now a leaked email shows that the State Department refused to give approval to those planes to land anywhere right into the retired Marine who chartered the planes, the State Department email says. In part, no charters are allowed to land at any D O D base. You need to find another destination country and it can't be the US either. The State Department says it can't verify who is on the planes.

"Of that interview, which was recorded off air after yesterday's show concluded. Let me finish on countdown. Bin Laden, Chris, Um, the 9 11 celebration. Commemoration memorials are coming up. I believe that the administration is trying to turn the page on the thousands of Americans left. I'm told I did not see it on Sunday. I was picking up People at the airport that you interviewed Chairman McCaul. I'm told you did a good job. I believe that the administration is absolutely shamelessly obvious skating. They will not give us exact numbers of the minimum. They know they won't give us names of Americans. They're confusing NPR's with citizens When they're all Americans, they're confusing s IVs with NPR's green card holders ought to be here. Do you believe there is a cover up under way of the extent of Americans, both citizens and NPR's who are hidden who are left and abandoned in Afghanistan. And if so, what will you do about it? I? Well, I was the first question I asked to call on Sunday, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. As I said, you know, they're not nice specifically said Secretary's Day Blanket on Friday refused to say how many Americans and Afghan allies have left since Since we pulled out last Monday, and do you know as the top official and he said Have absolutely no idea and I've asked the State Department and I don't know. And then he broke news, which was the fact that there were some Americans and Afghans who he said were being held hostage. At an airport in northern Afghanistan. Mazar e Sharif and I, You know, absolutely I'm going to do everything I can to find out, you know, Look, cover up. That's a little strong for me, but they certainly are not coming clean about it. And, you know, I suppose one of the arguments will be well to the degree. We let people know who's gotten out and how they've gotten out. Apparently four Americans got out overland it may you know that it may alert the Taliban. No, the country that but that the pull out and the evacuation was totally screwed up. And you know they we need to have more transparency. Obviously nothing. About operational security about are we able to get them out? And and that's not let's be clean and clear about it. If the Taliban is demanding stuff, unfreeze the billions of dollars in assets recognizes diplomatically do other things. We ought to let you know the American people ought to know that the U. S government knows the Taliban knows the only people who don't know. Are as You see, I would accept that if Ron Klain came out and said, I have a great deal of respect for Ron Klain. I'm not going to give you any details because it will endanger our negotiations with the Taliban and the people involved. I would respect that and I would back off. They're not doing that, according to Wall Street Journal, right, they're trying to turn the page and that's a completely different thing. And I'm afraid that the Taliban are going to be forced into A Danny Pearl situation to get the attention of the American people back, So I think they're obfuscation is endangering Americans is that legitimate point of view? At this point, Honestly, everything is a legitimate point of view. You know, we're talking about some of the most bloodthirsty savage people on earth. You know when they say the kinder, gentler Taliban Khalil Haqqani, who is the self appointed head of security in Kabul. Organized I e d explosives that took out our fellow American soldiers. He's got a $5 million bounty. On his head. So you know these guys capable of anything? Yes, and and, you know, could they if they think it's to their advantage to turn this into a justice, Iran style Hopkins situation. I don't see that yet. But is it is it off the table? No, of course not Nothing with these people. Nothing was off the table. Nothing last. Very last question there again. I only have on the Hugh Hewitt show. You keep talking to me as long as you want. Okay. Okay. Zawahiri. He's not. I didn't see his name again. I don't have. I don't have the index book so I couldn't see if I missed him. I don't see Zawahiri his name. I expect him to show up in Kabul. I really do. I think the son of a I can't say that because of the FCC again. We'll play the rest of this tomorrow. Do you think Zawahiri is going to show up? And did he not? Did you not ask about him? Or did people not want to talk about him? Because he's still at large. He is in the book. He's a late in the book we talk about. I asked What would the impact of taking bin Laden and his and his fellow? Gary who? Gary Okay, and Gary talks about him, and there's an analysis and basically You know, the fact of the matter is like anything else. Like good right broadcasters like yourself versus medium broadcasters and baseball players and politicians. There are more effective and inspirational terrorists and less effective. Our hearing is, I guess a good backup guy, a staff guy, but he's not. He's not a leader and and one of the things that people said was that since he took over after 2011 You know, there just hasn't been nearly as much, Uh, impetus behind Al Qaeda and one of the guys out. Gary was that of the Pakistan Afghan department says. You know, one of the things we did is we took out that we decapitated the head of Al Qaeda and you know there's somebody is going to replace him. But he's not as good as any. He specifically says. I've read Zawahiri's Job evaluation. It's not good. So that comes through in the luring tower. You cite the looming tower. In fact, I went through your bibliography, and I've read Cheney and Coal and Clinton and Doug Faith. I read Robert Gates, McRaven Morello, Neil Tennant, Woodward and Right. I think the best book of them all is Lawrence Wright's followed up closely by Mike Morales when you're done, and you've written your own book. Who do you think should be in this administration? Given that that they got to be Democrats and given their experience that you talked to should Panetta be back? Should morale be back? Who would you put in? If you could based on your Research into bin Laden and Countdown bin Laden. Uh to me. The greatest weakness. I certainly I don't think it's in the intel community, maybe in the military community and definitely at stay. I'm very impressed. Unimpressed by the state operation, I'm very unimpressed. By Anthony Blinken. You know Blinken had a news conference. I guess it was well. It was last Friday. It was when he refused to say how many people Americans and Afghans have gotten out. And, you know, he was speaking with all the passion of somebody reading the telephone book, and you know it's not a matter of politics. It's a matter of presence and gravitas. When Mike Pompeo or Hillary Clinton or, you know, just go on and on Colin Powell. Spoke for the United States of America There was you know, there was don't mess with us, guys where the United States of America Blinken, I think is a great staff man, but I'm not. I'm very doubtful as to whether he should be the voice. Other than the president. And Lord knows Kamala Harris isn't around the voice of America's presence in the world.

Cal Fire reports that Keldorf fire is showing a minimal growth and containment is now at 49% spokesman that Kevin Brown says thousands of Tahoe Basin residents have been allowed to return home right now there are only evacuation warnings. The key thing about that term as it means, yes, remain ready to evacuate again. If needed. That's not to say that we believe it's likely It's just, you know, an abundance of caution and we want to ensure if we do have a flare up, that's unexpected that we have the ability to expedite the evacuation process. More than 700 homes have been lost since the fire broke out. But Brown tells Nikki Maduro on the KGO morning show that 85% of the burn zone has been surveyed, and no homes have been lost in the Tahoe basin itself.

"Is in Qatar negotiating over the release of more U. S citizens and others from Afghanistan. For an update on the situation. Welcome now. Hagar Shamali, host of Oh, my world on YouTube. Miss Shomali earlier served as Ambassador Samantha Powers spokesperson for the U. S mission to the United Nations. And also it's a former National Security Council director for Syria and Lebanon. So hunger Thank you so much for being back with us. We have Tony Blinken. Now in Qatar. What can he accomplish there? Well, so the purpose of his goal is to focus on the immediate needs of the U. S government, which is the evacuation of remaining Americans in Afghanistan, of which there are said to be 100. That is what he said. He said that the US government is in touch with them and that four American specifically have been released since the U. S military withdrawal And the reason that's so important, even though it sounds like a small number is that the Taliban knew of their release. They knew they were travelling by land outside of Afghan Stand and they didnt impede or get in the way And so one aspect is to ensure that the U. S. Can maintain this line of communication with the Taliban to ensure the safe passage of Americans out who want to get out. But also the key here and this is going to be a really tricky point. Here is the Afghans who worked with the U. S government. They are obviously going to be targeted by the Taliban and the U. S. Is behind the number of Afghans who helped the U. S who remain in Afghanistan who weren't able to get out is unclear. And the problem is we don't have a U. S consulate anymore to vet them and work through their paperwork, especially when you have families who are Afghan but who have a family member who is an American citizen right for immediate families. So this is what Secretary Blinken has said he's working with the Taliban to achieve so the Taliban has said, as I understand it that they really want to be part of the world ordered. Unlike the last time they were in charge, they don't want to be a rent. The gate country. How much will depend on whether in fact they left us. I believe it's six commercial airliners at Mazar e Sharif up in the north out because we have U. S citizens and others that are ready to leave flying out of Mazar e Sharif. Right. So the first thing I would note is that I wouldn't expect any. I would tell everybody not to expect the Taliban to change its behavior or how it views itself in terms of the international world stage that I've heard many people say that. Oh, you know, we're gonna wait and see how they how they act. And now they have a country and they have a lot more to lose. But the fact is, that was the case in the 19 nineties as well. So most experts, especially counterterrorism experts, none of us expect the Taliban to change its behavior at all when it comes to an nefarious activity, allowing Afghanistan to become a breeding ground for terrorism, and certainly it's regard for human rights and women's rights. Um so that's the first. But when it comes to allowing certain commercial flights to leave their it's not. It doesn't go totally against their interests if they allowed Certain commercial flights to depart. I don't think that one necessarily means that they are going to change their attitude toward being some kind of player on the international world stage. And to that point, I don't expect the U. S government and a number of other governments to recognize the Taliban as the official government other than countries like China and Russia and pick you can stand in Iran, for example, so hot car One thing you said, really caught my attention, which is the possibility of Afghanistan once again. Being a base from which terrorist attacks relaunching the United States. That's why we went in 20 years ago. Originally, do you think that the Taliban will tolerate either Al Qaeda or Islamic state launching terrorist attacks from their territory? Well, there's certainly against Islamic state. Right. There's an organizing, and it sounds so much an option but a chapter if you will of Isis in the areas in the area. It's called Isis harsh on into the area that they that they oversee if you will, and so we call it. Isis came right and they are directly against the Taliban, so the Taliban are against them, but I have no faith. In the Taliban's ability to really prevent the terrorist attacks. I think that they then you go after some of them, they may try and capture some of them. But when it comes to actually ensuring security inside Afghanistan to prevent attacks like that I have zero faith. It's why Turkey and Qatar have proposed handling the security of the airport because we certainly can't leave it to the Taliban. Um, that also, by the way, it doesn't mean that it's great a security but it is a vast improvement. From what the Taliban could offer. So in one regard, Yes, there against the Isis that pretends conflict on the ground right? It pretends that you're going to have fighting on the ground in that regard. But that doesn't mean that you're not going to have foreign fighters flocked to Afghanistan regardless because Afghanistan is an enormous country, the border between Afghanistan Pakistan is extremely porous. And as you had in the 19 nineties, where Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda was able to flourish, I absolutely expect Terrorist groups of these kinds to flourish again in Afghanistan. So final question Cigar. How confident are you of U s ability to do? I guess it's called over the horizon attacks against terrorists inside of Afghanistan. We were not based there. I am confident and the reason for that is I've been on the other side and we have without going into detail. We have really excellent intelligence. We have been able to use drone strikes to target terrorist leaders in Yemen in Iraq and Syria, including in areas that we aren't Physically present in on the ground. And and that's because of the strength of our U. S intelligence, our military intelligence, and so I do expect that that will continue. And I do want to make one point here when the United States says that they would coordinate with the Taliban. That doesn't mean actual working together, a coordination that literally means a heads up. Said. Hey, we're about to go strike this guy in 30 seconds And so you know, I do expect us to be strong in this regard. I just I don't have, uh, Strong or positive hope for Afghanistan that it's going to be stable anytime soon. This is very helpful. Hager Thank you so much. For that time I got Shamali.

"Seems to be a grown Hostage crisis on the ground specifically in the city of Mazar e Sharif in Afghanistan, where an airport there has a number of US chartered planes set to go, But they cannot leave because the Taliban is making demands of the American government as a precondition for their departure. Now that's the way Congressman McCaul represented this yesterday. On Fox listen as Chris Wallace discovers this news live on the air, and he starts by asking first. How many Americans have gotten out of the country since The since since the military left how many Americans have gotten out of Afghanistan since we pulled out how many Afghan allies have gotten out since the Taliban was in complete control of the country? I understand zero And in fact, we had six airplanes that massage Sharif Airport six airplanes with American citizens on them as I speak also with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them hostage for demands right now, they we have stayed as cleared these flights and the Taliban will not let them leave the airport. So I'm sorry. The answer to your question is zero, and that's my concern is they're going to demand more and more, whether it be cash or legitimacy as the government of Afghanistan zero And we've got planes on the ground. This is turning into a hostage situation. Six airplanes at Mazar e Sharif Airport with American citizens on them as I speak with these interpreters, and the Taliban is holding them hostage. It's a huge deal, and this is what we were fearing that this would turn into a hostage crisis. Now, what were the Taliban one? In addition to the billions of dollars of weapons we gave them? Just the keys to the government running the country, the ability to slaughter people in the streets or inside their homes without really any barriers whatsoever. In exchange for making paying lip service to to what? Combating climate change. Do you remember that two weeks ago? One of the promises that the vitamin that the Taliban were making two of them. The two big promises were well what we promised we're going to treat women better, and we're going to confront climate change. What Confront climate change. What kind of suckers are we? We live hundreds of Americans behind and the exchanges well, so long as they commit to fighting climate change. We're good fist bump. Thanks. That's insane. Like why do I get the feeling that if the Taliban were to release a statement today condemning Texas for its new abortion law? The Biden administration would cut them a check for several billion dollars. Like. Oh, good. You're a good international partner. They've got good values, right? How often have we seen this with American companies who condemn things within the United States that they don't like. Georgia wants to pass some law protecting kids in their state or whatever the issue is. And then Disney comes along and lectures them right. And what does Disney turn around? And do they make a movie inside of a a slave province inside of China? It's the same move here. The Taliban are you serious? The Taliban are really they're gonna get control. Climate change. You think that's that's priority? One? In a country that barely has literacy. Yeah. Climate change. We really need. Yeah, we're gonna We're gonna cap our carbon emissions We promised we're gonna start planting trees everywhere will have carbon offsets. It's gonna be really big. We're gonna stop driving all these gas guzzling SUVs. We promise that we won't build all these destructive power plants. They probably even have the wherewithal. This is like it's a country that's centuries behind everyone else. Yes, we're gonna get control of climate change. In exchange for, uh, for your generosity, America and for you looking the other way on getting American citizens out. Okay, So we have all these American citizens were on the ground in Afghanistan waiting to get on flights that are sitting there waiting for them. How many Americans are involved here? Well, we keep getting all sorts of numbers, According to the New York Post, Uh, we've we've got one official. Who told Newsweek again. This is how the news works. This is a derivative piece of reporting. The New York Post is reporting on what news Beak week was told. A Biden official told Newsweek. That there are nearly 1600 people on the manifest of these planes who want to fly of which 123 of them are Americans. And the rest they claim are special immigration visas. Okay, so 100 and 23 Americans waiting to go. Now in the reporting here, there's two explanations for this one is what Congressman McCaul has been claiming The Taliban aren't letting them go there making demands. This is a hostage situation. And then another claim that's being made. Is that the State Department is complaining that they have no easy way to vet or clear the charter flights. So, in other words, the United States has no official presence on the ground in Afghanistan. So as a result, here's the spokes, a spokeswoman for the State Department, telling the media this week end quote. First of all, they said that the department no longer has personnel on the ground after the US led evacuation mission ended last month, and it doesn't control the airspace quote whether over or Afghanistan or elsewhere in the region. Quote. Given these constraints, we also do not have a reliable means to confirm the basic details of charter flights, including who may be organizing them, the number of US citizens and other priority groups on board the accuracy of the rest of the manifest and where they plan to land among many other issues. The spokeswoman went on to say that the United States will, however, quote hold the Taliban to its pledge to let people freely depart Afghanistan. In other words. We don't have the manpower to save our people. We did until we pulled them out. And now we have nothing. And now we're relying on the goodwill of the Taliban. So which story is true is that the Taliban are conducting a hostage crisis. Is that the State Department and the Biden administrations to enough to save these Americans? Or is this some combination of both? Well, let's ask our next guest. Alex, please. This is an author of the Federalist National Security Professional. Bronze Star Recipient A U. S. Army combat veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and one of the guys we've talked to here on this show already about. He was been behind the scenes trying to get our people out of Afghanistan. He continues to do that now, Alex thanks again for joining us. Ivan. Thanks actually good timing because I actually spoke to the NGOs who were sponsoring those flights, and that's news that I can share. Please do. Okay. So there are five NGOs that have come together to sponsor the flights that are in Mazar The flights. There's people not on them. Right now. The flights have been been submitted, and estimates such as well find out hold up. Seems to be interview place according to the heads of the NGOs that I just spoke to him. It's that there needs to be DHS clearance for the manifest for the people on board. So that's the security mechanism the State Department was talking about. There has to be a plan for resettlement afterwards, and the NGOs are saying that they can and will take care of that, and there was a plan for it..
