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

"The California man who became known as the American Taliban following his capture in Afghanistan's now a free man as AP correspondent meant small reports John Walker Lindh was released from federal prison in Indiana on Thursday. The thirty eight year old has spent more than seventeen years behind bars after pleading guilty to providing support to the Taliban, the plea deal called for a twenty year sentence. But he's getting out a few years early for good behavior. After his release is opposed by the family of Mike Spann, who had been interrogating him and other Taliban prisoners shortly before an uprising that claimed the CIA officers life.

"All the time. Tom sullivan. Time it is. So. Today is the day that John Walker. Lindh is being released. I believe he's currently at Tara out of the which is one of the more intense super secure prisons federal prisons in in the country. This is a guy who was joined the Taliban. Before nine eleven. He's from he was born in Washington DC. But his parents moved to California he basically grew up in northern California and became involved in. Roman Catholic baptize Roman Catholic and all that. But he, he got involved in Buddhism Buddhist was away to go. And then he saw spike, Lee's film Malcolm X was deeply impressed sparked is interest in Islam. Started going around various mosques around northern California. And then left. At twenty years of age to Afghanistan to fight for the Taliban government against the Northern Alliance fighters as prior to nine eleven. So Richard Ingle from NBC basically lays out the back story about the American Taliban. His story is also fascinating one, if you look back at how he ended up behind bars, how we ended up with the Taliban, he's almost a story of the nine eleven era. Here is a young guy who converted to Islam moved over to the Middle East went to Yemen learned. Arabic fell in with extremists then crosses over into Afghanistan before nine eleven joins up with the Taliban, which was working in cahoots with, with al-qaeda and then compounding a terrible decision while he's there. I'll launches nine eleven which triggers the war American forces arrive. They arrest him. They put him in a prison. He's interrogated by a officer and then shortly after that interrogation that was a prison revolt in the facility. And that's the INS are Mike Spann was killed no indication at all that the, the American who's done Walker lid was involved in this death. But the fact that he was in that prison. He was interrogated that it was in Afghanistan after nine eleven and then there was the prison revolt of right after the tear Gatien made many people very upset linked to that death, and Mike, Spence family are among the people who are questioning why it is that he's being released to now if he still harbours extremist ideas. Yeah. So he's still harbours all these wonderful feelings about the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and he hates America. And he's been in prison. Almost twenty years, he was captured right after he was captured November twenty fifth two thousand one so couple months after nine eleven. This was it was captured by the Northern Alliance forces after his group surrendered at one of the sites where there was a battle. So Mike Spann was the CIA officer that was there. And was interrogating some of the prisoners in this prison? And then they had the revolt, Mike. Richard Engel said the CIA officer he was the first casualty on the battlefield overseas. That died after nine eleven. So back to Richard Ingle. He describes how US officials some of them are very nervous about the fact that this guy is getting released some US officials particularly in the Trump administration are asking right now. Mike Pompeo secretary of state just raised that a short while ago asking, why it was that officials decided to let him out on good behavior when there are numerous reports including letters that he has written indicating that he is still a supporter of violent extremism supported extremist groups, including ISIS. But the, the, the prison officials did decide to let him out and he's expected to he's out expected to be up now. Yeah. So he's somewhere. Hello, indiana. Somewhere in your neighborhood. Don't know where he's going. We don't have that information. Richard Ingle says, well, the US is going to try to keep an eye on this Taliban sympathiser, who is somewhere in the United States loose today. Very strict surveillance, no passport. He's expected to live, according to, to his family in the Virginia area he had hoped to live in Ireland because you don't supply to have an Irish citizenship, but his physical movements will be controlled. Also. We'll have to let thirties. No, every time he wants to get any kind of mobile device or internet connected device communications will be monitored. So I think it's fair to say he will have very, very strict controls, put on what he says, and what he does, but you can't put people behind bars for what they think. No. But and he was sentenced to twenty years and do the math. I mean, this is two thousand one to two thousand nineteen is eighteen years Zoe's, getting out a little early. But basically spent most of his twenty years. He's thirty eight years old now. And but still a crackpot. Still, a guy who has sympathy for our enemies. And so I don't know. Yeah. You can't arrest them for what is thoughts? Are he served his time almost, but this business about he has to report, whenever he, he has any device, that is capable of internet connection? Well, I don't know how they're going to that. I'm sure he's got family or friends, or somebody that he is going to be able to borrow wink, wink. Some sort of smartphone or tablet, or something that, which you'll be able to access the internet. So I don't see this turning out all that. Well, the guy seems like he's not all there, at least that was the last time we saw him when he was going through of the conviction of, of being a enemy combatant. So. I, I don't know. It's guy who is radicalized before nine eleven. And it was a big shock when they picked him up. They got him in Lodi, California. I remember right. But he, he basically I believe is family and he grew up in very affluent area of San Francisco Marin county. So it's not like the guys poor his parents got divorced while he was a teenager. Well lot of people's parents got divorced while they were teenagers turn into. I don't know. He just seemed like he was he's a strange guy who was searching around for different religions. And the fact that, that the movie, Malcolm X, inspired him. I'm sure that wasn't what Spike Lee was trying to do was get his interest marked on becoming Islam, and there's a lot of people who got interested in becoming Muslim and converted, but they're not running around trying to join the Al Qaeda crowd or Taliban. So we'll see. This is where. We're, we're now entering the era where some of these early prisoners of war are being released. Ireland wanted nothing to do with him. He said that he was Irish. He was a no more Irish than than the man in the moon born and raised born in Washington DC raised in California. Let's talk to John in California real quick before the break. Hi, john. Hey, Tom pleasure to talk to you. Like. The only the only thing I can wrap my head around it as maybe they're gonna gonna gonna surveillance, this guy track them. See where it goes. We talked to, you know what I mean. What do you get into? Well, yes. I mean, it will be interesting to see if he falls back into some sort of AVI round that wants to harm America. Well, yeah. I mean he's obviously still going home. So I mean if he's released died watch him, you know, I mean. That's the only thing one can do when one you know, aligns with the, you know, complete, you know, opposing side of American freedom. We'll see we'll see if that if that's what they're gonna do. But I gotta run, John. Thank you. Stop yelling at the radio and get on the.

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish, and I'm Mary Louise Kelley, how serious is the threat from Iran. And what capabilities does Iran have that make it dangerous to the US? And our allies members of the Trump administration were on Capitol Hill yesterday, providing lawmakers with their answers to those questions, based on intelligence, that remains largely classified a we're gonna put those questions next to Heather Williams. She served as a US intelligence analyst, for more than a dozen years under both Republican and democratic administrations, Heather Williams. Welcome back to all things considered. Thank you for having me. So in your view, if you can just describe in a few sentences into the question I posed at the top, how serious is the threat from Iran. I think it is a serious threat. I don't see strong evidence that it has increased as of late Iran has the ability to act via proxy organizations towards United. States troops, diplomats other assets that might be in the region. It also has the mechanisms to act against our partners and against our allies, either directly or through the proxy organizations that it has a relationship with and a little bit of a picture of what that map looks like when you describe Iran's proxy organizations in the Middle East. So Iran's strongest relationship is with Lebanese Hezbollah wouldn't that allows them to have a measure of influence both to act in Lebanon to act towards Israel from Lebanon, but increasingly to act in other countries, where Iran has deployed, Lebanese has Bala troops to, including Syria? It is also been improving its relationship with who the'rebels and in Yemen, though, its ability to direct or control. The huskies still very limited, and it has long established relationships. With Iraqi militias does Ron have control over its proxies. I would say that control is a strong word. It has influence and it can may put some parameters in what these groups do it can discourage them from doing certain actions. And then it could've loosened those constraints and unleashed those proxy organizations. But that doesn't mean that it can put them back in the box after it does. So, and they don't always operate in the way that Ron anticipates. Some people look at the current situation. The heated rhetoric we've been talking about moving military assets to the Gulf, and they hear echoes of the run up to war in Iraq. Do I certainly hope? That's not the path that we're on. I think it is important considering that there are individuals in this administration who were part of the policy decisions, made, then the right intelligence questions weren't asked of the intelligence community. An intelligence was presented out of context very often. So I think it's very careful just for the credibility of the United States, and the credibility of the intelligence community that we aren't seen as doing that, again, were you serving in the intelligence community, then in two thousand one thousand two thousand three I came in on the tail end, this is personal for you. I guess I what kind of confidence do you have the, the Iran intelligence is better than they rock intelligence was fifteen sixteen years ago. Yes, this is certainly personal for me. Also has a member of the national intelligence council, which has taken great efforts since the national intelligence estimate on Iraq WMD to ensure that we would not commit errors in the future when you're inside the intelligence community. People are very concerned about being the boy who cried wolf you only have so many times that you can ring the alarm bells and actually say the threat is increasing. I always concerned that maybe we wouldn't wanna use those, those tools prematurely. And do you see that as a possible danger, this time, I don't know, it seems to be changing day by day? What the intentions of the administration are seems like we're on a de escalation path, perhaps, on the just the last few days, but that seems like it could easily change in the future. Heather williams. She was national intelligence officer for Iran under the director of national intelligence. She is now at the RAND Corporation, Heather Williams. Thank you. Thank you. Now an update on one story. That's part of the long war in Afghanistan. The prisoners speaks English ended defense official says the US forces now holding him have every reason to believe he is a US citizen. That's NPR's. Tom chilton. Reporting back in two thousand one and the prisoner he spoke of was Taliban fighter, John Walker Lindh a twenty year old from northern California land was later sentenced to twenty years for joining the Taliban. He's scheduled to be released tomorrow from federal prison in Indiana, NPR, national security correspondent Greg Myers here in the studio. Welcome back, ride high Yati remind us how John Walker lint wound up as a soldier with the Taliban. Well, he was born right here in DC, and his father was a lawyer at the Justice department and practicing Catholic, the family moved to northern California when he was aged ten it's sixteen converts to Islam, and then a year later with his parents support. He goes to study Arabic in Yemen, and then on to Pakistan in then in the spring of two thousand one he goes. To Afghantistan to volunteer is a Taliban soldier without his parents knowing about this part of it. So how did his interest in Islam lead him to becoming a soldier for the Taliban? Well, his family said he was very idealistic in the US at that point wasn't involved in the war. And the family says the John Walker Lynn had no intention of fighting Americans but then nine eleven happens in the US begins, its bombing, and he's among a group of tala Bon soldiers who surrender. And there's a sort of extraordinary coincidence. And there's this footage of, of John Walker lint on his knees being questioned by a CIA operative who turns up at this camp in his name was Mike Spann part of this very, small CIA contingent a few hours later, the Taliban prisoners launched an uprising in span is killed now no evidence. John Walker Lynn was an active participant. Fact, he was shot and wounded this goes on for several days, but he's a venture -ly captured. He pleads guilty to joining the. Taliban gets a twenty year sentence, though. No terrorism or treason charges against him. He's now being released three years early right in that twenty years sentence. Do we know John Walker links about the Taliban today? Well, not exactly. Because we really haven't heard from him behind bars when he went to prison in two thousand and two gave a prepared statement and said, I've never understood Jehad to mean anti-americanism or terrorism, I condemn terrorism on every level he said at the time, but we do have to note the terrorism, the Taliban rather was already a very notorious group when he joined head had abominal human rights record, and they were protecting Osama bin Laden and then serve another extraordinary coincidence. He actually met Osama bin Laden turned up at one of the Taliban training camps at that time in Mike spans family is, is very upset about this release one of his kids who was very young at the time is now grown daughter, Allison says this releases a slap in the face. Greg. What are the conditions of his relief of his release? Where's he going to live? We don't know exactly. His parents are very supportive and are, are still at northern California, but he got these three years off for good behavior. The judge has has put on very tight probation restrictions. He's going to need permission to go online. He'll be closely monitored at all times he'll get mental health counseling, now we do know that imprison he did get an Irish passport through one of his grandparents, I of Irish descent, but he can't travel. So we don't know what kind of life, he's going to be able to build out of this, and we'll just have to wait and see..

Maryland, Democrats are accusing governor HOGAN of using a white nationalism dog whistle. And you want to be bipartisan, this is what you get. And the FOX volleys continue for Fox News is not good. Not good. This is one of those stories we covered back in two thousand and four. There was an early days of what was happening in Afghanistan. A small group of operatives went in to help local Afghans to fight the Taliban. And one of those was a CIA operative. See officer by the name of Johnny, Mike Spann. One of these days Hollywood, I'll make a movie about these Braves operatives in what they did in the early days of the campaign. But there was a Garba name of John Walker Lindh. A convert to Islam. He took the name Obdulio Mead. Abu sulayman. And in the battle of Mazar schrief and qala-i-jangi was the battle. It was in the Mazari Sharif area. The stinking rotten rat was captured as an enemy combatant during the us invasion of Afghanistan. He was captured and detained at a fortress. He took part against the United States in the battle of color. I'll Jangi a violent uprising of Taliban prisoners during which CIT officer Mike Spann was killed. Just before his death. The CIA agent American hero. Mike Spann interviewed. This trader. And span was killed when Muslim prisoners emerged from their fortress rushed the guards threw grenades and grabbed their captors rifles and the stinking rotten rat. Was one of them. At the time. He was reviled by the American people. He was public enemy number one American knew what was what then. Eighteen years later, we are under siege. Consumed by the enemy who dictates who. We are what we can. And cannot say Mike Spann is an American hero a war hero. But the stinking rotten rat is about to walk free. He's scheduled to be released in may. And this is what happens. I mean. He should have been charged with treason, he could met the death penalty should faced a firing squad for his actions. Instead, this is what happens when you get into the criminal injustice system with a leftist lawyers leftist judges and the like here in America today. A guy was responsible for the death and Mike Spann and his widow and it's two children. Well, not know their husband or father any longer, but the stinking rotten rat continues to draw breath. And he was sent to twenty years in prison again he should have been executed death penalty. He's going to be released in may Frank. And by the way. He has not denounce. This Llamas, the national counter ISM terms terror center pen to document two years ago, claiming the sticking rotten rat. He's not sorry. He says he will continue to advocate for global jihad. He will write and translate violent extremists texts and he's not sorry for his actions. He will continue to spread his brand of extremism in the name of Islam when he is released. He's toys warned us. He's told us now he's not gonna be here in the United States. He's announced he's going to Ireland. This guy should be now an international pariah. There should be no country in the world, except he wants to go back to Afghantistan or go back to ISIS or whatever the case may be but no western country. No self-respecting country in the world should admit the stinking rotten read into which populace. No. Of course, I just question whether trying to recall now, and I can't recall anyone has there been a terrorist leader were terrorists in general. But a terrorist leader that has been tried in this country and executed. Now, I I know that there have been some that have been killed on the battlefield, but I don't know of any who have come here to this country to be tried on different charges. That has been executed. I always thought somebody would be perpetrating terrorist attack when you're on on the country or even being successful in doing so a qualified for execution. This is why they use our own system to defeat us. I mean, you know, how stupider we how stupider we regard that killed an American hero. He gets twenty years twenty years in prison. Now, he's going to be a two thousand one. So he's going to be out in may. So he was convicted four so he basically serve fifteen of the twenty years when a federal sense that's pretty good. You've got people still you've got people who have been found guilty of distributing marijuana has gotten more time than that. So again, he he's he's going to pick up right where you left off. And then if I'm the the British government, if I'm I'm in Ireland is I've flagged this guy's passport. No way. Disea- get admission into Ireland. And of Great Britain does that they they take a convicted terrorist to to live among so then, you know, it's just a matter of time before because you know, he's he's had a long time to think about how he's going to get revenge. You're right. We're not. We don't execute. These people should they're enemy combatants. They should go to Geico. And they should be tried by military tribunal and given the death penalty for waging war against the United States of America. Especially where they don't renounce other terrorist activities. But this is what we do in. This country is was under a different administration was.
