Newt Gingrich Offers Advice to Next Republican Administration Against China, Big Tech

"So the next administration, the GOP writ large when it comes to the external threat of China and the internal threat of big tech, what would you say to president Trump? Well, I'd say, first of all, the text is easier of the two. Simply make them comment carriers and make it a ability to sue for triple damages. And you'll overnight see them change their behavior. But that's going to be a big fight, but there's no there's no excuse when you have a system like Twitter, which knocks off a person who got 73 million votes. Knocks off the oldest and fourth largest newspaper in America, the New York Post founded by Alexander Hamilton. But allows the Taliban spokesperson to stay on. You know the system is just plain sick. So I think we need to have I don't want government involved, but I think we need to create an opportunity for individuals and companies to protect themselves in court. And if you could sue for triple damages, I mean, the New York Post alone would have gotten a huge amount of money out of the way they were treated in

"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

The Last Gasps of a Dying Regime

"The regime has fallen apart. In the Biden White House right now, you have 24 staffers talking to CNN to try and derail and disempower the vice president of the United States. But I will say this that Kamala Harris has done something Joe Biden has never done. Well, she's done a lot of things. But we're not going to get into that in this show, but her approval rating is 28%. Joe Biden's 36%. So there might be some people in The White House say, you know why we're so unpopular, it's Kamala Harris's fault. In some ways, she might serve as an internal scapegoat because remember. Within the philosophy and the psychology that the flask within the psychology of a Democrat is to always blame another. For once problems always. This is critical to the existence of a left winger. Or of a liberal or a Democrat or whatever you want to call it. Instead of saying, huh? Maybe we should have armed the Taliban. Maybe we shouldn't have kept the borders wide open. Maybe people are mad about inflation. No, no, no. The same way that Alexander Kazakh says blames other people for climate change for dissatisfaction and happiness, the same sort of way that BLM incorporated blames systemic racism for injustice. The same sort of way is that Democrats have the muscle memory. They are programmed. They are led to believe that the only appropriate way to deal with adversity is to blame other people.

Here's What the Viral 'Let's Go, Brandon' Chant Actually Means

"So it's amazing how some people are coming up to me and they say Charlie, I don't know what, you know, let's go Brandon is. It really after all this, you still don't know? Okay, so for the last couple months, if you haven't noticed our country has fallen apart. And we've been covering that rather extensively here in this program and what you can do about it. And so in addition to all of a sudden, the sport where was the first time that started at like an old miss game or something, I think that's where the first FJ started. And so people were pretty upset. I think you know what this started after the Afghanistan thing. After the Afghanistan thing, it was a it was a step too far. You give $85 billion a weapons to the Taliban, you allow them to take over the country, we give up Bagram air base, all these questions related to Afghanistan and how we got out of there. All of a sudden people said, you know what? I wanted the war in Afghanistan to be over. This is a disgrace. This is awful. This is an insult to all the people that gave their lives in Afghanistan. And that was kind of the line. And as that being the line, people then started to chant at these games. I'm not going to say it on air because we're FCC regulated and we're also we're also a child friendly a family friendly program. F J B or F Joe Biden. Now I'm not one for swearing, I actually try not to do it. We have like a no swearing rule on our team. We don't like it. And that's a different conversation for a different time. But I thought that that sort of word selection and diction was actually appropriate given what Joe Biden was doing to our country. And so then a certain NASCAR event happened in Florida. What was his last name Brandon what? So is the NASCAR driver by the name of Brandon and he was, I think it was in Florida or something, or somewhere in the south. And so he won and when he went to his victory speech, the reporter comes up to him and the crowd is going wild, and the crowd is chanting F Joe Biden, F Joe Biden, live on television. And so then he the guy Brandon is kind of like enjoying it, whatever, and the reporter says, oh, they're all saying, let's go Brandon. Even though it wasn't even close to what they were saying. And so then it kind of became this Internet meme culture joke, and this is the power of Internet meme culture. Where everyone was texting around, let's go Brandon as kind of a substitute to this. Let's go Brandon, let's go Brandon. Now this was ignored by the activist media. This was completely and totally ignored by everyone. They thought this would kind of go away, but no, all of a sudden they now had a we now have a PG way, a totally okay way to say the graphic and the explicit in a way where it's kind of like code where everyone knows what we're saying, which is let's go brand and he's wonderful NASCAR

This is the concern of your government. In the United States, it's becoming increasingly common for people to share their pronouns. Third person personal pronouns are used to describe a person or people in American English grammar as the subject or the object of the possessive. These pronouns include the gender neutral they them theirs, words that traditionally refer to a plural number, but today are used by some individuals who identify as gender non binary.

When We Make Decisions Based on Diversity Instead of Competency, America Suffers

"That when we start to organize society, or when we start to make decisions based on things that people can not change versus on things they can change such as diversity or skin color, not competency and excellence, then all of a sudden you're going to start to see society suffer because of it. And a great example of this is what happened in Afghanistan, which I think we've forgot about way too quickly. What happened in Afghanistan was a publican international humiliation where we gave $85 billion to the Taliban. We gave up the Bagram air base. The sacrifices of so many military members went for not. And let me be very clear. I was all for ending the war in Afghanistan. But if all of a sudden I said, hey, you know, you're the kidney that gets removed. You take out a pocket knife and you start to do, like, that's not a good idea, okay? Go to a professional who knows what they're doing. There's a good way and a bad way to do something that needs to be done. And getting out of Afghanistan, Robinson, hey, let's arm the enemy, give the embassy up, not patrol the air base, Americans are stranded for months on end, give China the upper hand with the entire evacuation, give up the strategic air base. And the reason in the opinion of, I think anyone looks at it objectively, is that the head of the United States military, Mark milley along with Lloyd Austin and Joe Biden, if you consider him to be the head of anything, which is, which is, they were testifying in front of Congress back in June, saying that the existential threat to America was white rage, and that we're not going to apologize for implementing critical race theory diversity equity inclusion or this sort of new history into the military. Into the military of all places. The military that by definition, every person here should want the military to be a place where competency ranks that you don't land the plane, your national security is at risk. You're not able to eliminate the enemy, your national security is at risk. Should all of a sudden, we'd be worrying about these arbitrary academic exercises of diversity equity inclusion or saying, hey, we have the greatest fighting force in the history of the world, probably not worth messing that up for some sort of esoteric abstract academic

"To become violent to be unstable and the idea that the more rights right that we bestow to women to make the playing field equal the better off in the long term. Our country is and what this piece is saying. Is that very same thing. But looking at it on a global scale and not just looking at the united states you see the thing is is that in this country we are more interested in putting bandaids on bullet holes than we are on anything else you see we only ever want unpack the psychology. When we're trying to invoke empathy in white male rage. We never actually decide. Let's unpack the psychology to better understand the policies that are driving this type of fucking violence and this type of increase in white supremacy violent groups right because they're oftentimes let us be clear. Is that these white supremacist. Groups are often steeped in misogyny as well which is why in two thousand sixteen. You would found me with my mouth. Agape because i'm like fuck these white women go ahead and vote for these men that don't want you to have access to an abortion that want to keep you locked in the household but in your reptilian brain. You're thinking about what survival and survival. Only which for white women is that the proximity to maleness right is where their power lies. So we enforce we reinforce this continual sickle mockery. Because we don't address anything actually at the root and what they will go on to say in the piece which i thought was really interesting as well. Is that when women are locked into these violent type of domestic situations right. It is also less likely that they are going to be educating thoughtful strategic leaders for the future. So if you're thinking again about your country's ability to rea- mansion manifest destiny and taliban takeover or if you were you know a dictator or what have you and you're looking to spread your wings. Why wouldn't you want as many educated people pushing your country forward as possible. But it's the same question that i ask about. The united states is the same question that i ask about the taliban which is why wouldn't you invest in women. Why wouldn't you make equal. Pay the log the land. Why wouldn't you make it so that in a country that was founded on christian fundamentalism. That if you wanted people to actually have families right to increase the population then you would do so. In a way that would allow there to be a mandate in private corporations to have child care right on the grounds it would be the same for the federal government and workers. That child care is a part of your package right just like a 401k. Just like health insurance that if you have a child that is not of school.

"Has got prevent significant amounts of aid actually any aid from the us from its allies and partners and from international financial institutions from being directed to the taliban government with these kinds of individuals its leadership so for a little just quick background. When the taliban overthrew the afghan government the international community froze the assets of the afghan government and paused providing crucial financial aid that included international monetary fund and world bank funding which froze dozens of projects and said that afghanistan would be ineligible for loans until the government was formerly recognized. I do not think the us should formally recognize this government. And so i think that's at least. Those are some of the the key steps. I think the administration should take now. Is that leverage that the taliban will respond to. It's unclear for two reasons. One is the taliban historic. Hasn't really cared that much. They were willing actually by the end of the nineteen nineties. Only to be recognized really by one major government pakistan. Saudi arabia had asked the taliban to hand over. Osama bin laden will omar the head of the taliban have refused so the saudi government took away bin laden's passport and then refused to recognize that government so historically they haven't cared when it's conflicted with the with their ideology. The second reason is that the taliban does have some backing including diplomatic backing today from china and russia and pakistan so if those governments are willing to provide assistance than the taliban may say at the end of the day. Fine if the. Us doesn't want to provide assistance. We'll get it from somewhere else. If the chinese russians pakistan are willing to provide that assistance so instead of bailing out the new government. The united states needs to treat. The taliban is the pariah that it is what you're suggesting in your piece and now so what do we need to do. In terms of the terrorism peace going forward. You know you've also pointed out. And i wanted to ask you about this. The connie network has reportedly met with the al qaeda's leader. I'm an al-zawahiri what does that all mean for. You know us going forward as we try to root out these terrorists before anything bad happens to us well. What it means. Is that sarraj. Connie and his network have close active relations with the same organization that conducted the september eleventh attacks in two thousand one and these relationships to put a fine point. They've met as recently as two thousand twenty correct. They've met as recently as two thousand twenty one the un report. That i highlighted ahead a half a dozen meetings between two thousand nineteen and two thousand twenty. But i'm told by a range of different individuals in government agencies in the us and across european governments that they met repeatedly throughout two thousand twenty one so up until now.

"The taliban i think could find very valuable. They're not perceived as a particularly sophisticated group technologically. But i think that that's changing and to the question of is this a new taliban. I think that's one of the ways that they are changing. We see we see the taliban spokesman on twitter. As i said earlier we see them looking at facebook for evidence of of people's interactions and so it could create a really dangerous opportunity to radically increase their power to surveilling control their population if that collaboration were to happen what is the united states. Do to counter those trends if we see evidence that i think there's a few things that we can do so one is that we have taken a number of steps with respect to xinjang in terms of trying to make sure that you ask generated. Technology built. technology doesn't get incorporated into the products. So we have a number of commerce department. Findings are rulings that restrict the ability of us companies to export the technology to china to chinese companies. And i think we need to really keep a close eye whether that list as expansive enough uncovers the folks who may could potentially export to china as well and. I think that we need to be sort of up front end clear about our concern in proactively track. It something that we need to be paying attention to so that we know if it does happen. There's also ways that we should be working with civil society groups in afghanistan and elsewhere to prepare for some level of digital surveillance because we know that any government is going to be interested in what's happening online by civil society groups but there are ways that civil society groups can protect themselves online. And i think we need to really proactively work with those groups to but as protections in place more. I have to ask you along the lines of digital surveillance. There were some equipment. The united states left behind that involve the biometric data of afghans. Could prove to be really scary in the longer of course. The taliban doesn't know how to use this technology. Ed but others do teach them what can lead to. And how could it be problematic for afghans going forward under taliban rule. I think it's a really unfortunate situation. If these reports are accurate that the military left behind equipment that basically collected the biometric information of afghans who interacted with the us government in some way whether visiting a military base or the embassy and this is technology that the taliban now controls what we understand is that they may be cannot crack into this themselves. But that the pakistanis have the ability to do so. The chinese obviously would be able to do so so may only be matter of time before they have access to a database. Like that and it's potentially the tip of the iceberg in terms of talibans ability to to track its population digitally so it's really a scary opportunity for the taliban to really have almost a hit list of people that it can target who interacted with the us government and the beginning of maybe a broader digital surveillance system that the.

"Which is certainly better than vetoing it so there may be some room there to to use international mechanisms to get some kind of consensus around these issues. I think that's going to be really important. Or do you think. The united states and were the international community can do if not directly indirectly for women of afghanistan. I think here we have to think. Creatively and really try to leverage the progress that has been made and you know the generation of men and women who've grown up since the taliban was last in place so just for example one of the things that's changed dramatically in the last twenty years since the taliban last ruled afghanistan is is access to technology so we now have cell phone coverage is fairly ubiquitous now in afghanistan which it was not in the ninety s internet accesses available in many places not everywhere and not all afghans are on the internet but in large cities many people are now online and this creates some interesting opportunities one to document human rights abuses and to get information out to the world as it's happening and we've seen that in many countries around the world that people smartphones have incredible power to document and spread the word about what's happening on the ground to it allows civil society organizations women's organizations human rights groups sick continued to communicate and organize and share information and protection and continue to grow their capacity. Potentially less risky way by doing so online and then third and to your point about women in particular if we do see a situation where the taliban quit stack in place these very severe restrictions on women and girls in terms of education and work. There are more options now than there were twenty years ago for online education for online working for online banking things that can allow people to still live their lives a little more easily in these very restrictive environments and in totally different contexts. We've learned a lot from copenhagen and lockdowns on how to work and live online but that's very very difficult to do without the right tools and resources and that's another thing..

"Is that you from the beginning. That are no good guys in the story. But i'm telling you why. The pakistanis felt the need that in working with audubon will be to their advantage. So that's very interesting. Aim in pakistan supported the taliban because they created much needed law and order as did in fact much of the afghan people during their rise. The taliban managed to take over most of afghanistan promising law and order promising a return of security and stability. I think though it's safe to say that in time that initial respect with slightly wore thin amongst a huge number of afghans because they're they're extremely strict application of sharia law wasn't entirely loved. It was more and more resented a to some extent now internationally the taliban apart from the uae. Saudi arabia and pakistan was not recognized as the official government of afghanistan because mainly the maintenance spy the taliban of a large number of jihadist camps most infamously those belonging to al-qaeda of which you were by this point a member in these camps. now there was. It was a very vexed question. America put pressure on the taliban to get rid of the camps to expel the arabs and exchange of which they would recognize them and the taliban said no they are. We are pashtoon. They are noble. Guest also i recognize us and then maybe we'll deal with the camp so there was a sort of tit for tat. The the taliban wanted the official recognition in order to deal with the jihadist camps and the americans said no no. We only recognize you if you do with the jihadist camp so this went on for several years. Meanwhile al is launching attacks In nineteen ninety eight launching the east africa embassy bombing attacks in two thousand the uss cole attack in aden this of course ultimately climaxes with nine eleven twenty years ago very soon and the americans invasion of afghanistan the quick toppling of the taliban and the establishment of a u. n. overseen new state-building process in afghanistan. So aim. is that all all pretty much right. A good a good summary of of what happened pretty much And also because don't forget. The taliban themselves were split down the middle between those who said closed camps but keep them in. Oh keep them out of medina but close the cups and they'll keep them as a guest aunt and those who were saying no no no no a a. We should look into support. The in the jihadist aspirations of any oppressed people keep them so it is the split within the abundant itself. Basically the doomed them in the end..

"These are the people who can guarantee justice for us. We want them goes to show you what a i. There was for law and order for security and justice in those areas that they and they thought well these students from pakistan these these afghan students from pakistan. Some of whom had fought the soviets many of whom were too young to have done so they seem to be the ones that are going to provide us this much-needed justice now as the movement spreads and then eventually as the taliban conquer the whole country more or less the idea as propagated that they were a creation. The taliban were creation of the pakistani intelligence services and that they were a puppet of pakistan. But it sounds from what you're saying that it was a much more organic movement the thought of on organically in the first six months. But what happened is that when they took control of the border crossings between ino the provinces of kandahar and helmand with pakistan the pakistani military and the pakistani is. I immediately noticed several things happening in in quick succession. The fuss is thought that nothing of the drugs stopped it to the deuce which was a endemic in pakistan. It was creating a really bad situation pakistan. They for free flow of drugs. The free flow of weapons also reduced the afghan refugees in pakistan. Who went in quick data especially in that part of pakistan started to come back to kandahar unto ghazni and to helmand to really the fruits of the security in the law and order that the taliban had imposed were already being seen and the trade the trade picked up significantly and suddenly basically in there is more money exchanging hands and the The economy of quitter in buxton boomed so they took notice. What does this force that was able to finally finally control this border and actually make. It's better for both pakistan and god. It's done so the investigated the you know the ice. I kept an iron everything. And then they prepared a report and they give it to benazir bhutto who was the prime minister of the time. Remember benazir bhutto is no friend of the abundance or the sunni extremists because no-no she's smiling. She was an israeli shia. That's right so she didn't. She didn't liberal the same time. She was in the more liberal than walk the outlook but she has a country to govern and she thought that if these people can reduce the smuggling of drugs and weapons can actually start to bring back refugees which are a burden on the pakistan economy. And if they can increase the trade and give gun some security so the trade and business can boom. Why not in. It doesn't matter you know it's a classic royal politique. I will ally myself with the devil in no if they serve my purpose so this is exactly what happened. Benazir border decided that the paladin not hekmatyar who was in the darling boy of pakistan in who should be assisted anymore. Because heck matiara for for us. What's taking money but showing nothing for it but these people organically organically proved themselves to be worthy of governing. So this is when the pakistani is i. After six months of initial success by the taliban they went to them and they.

In fact it's it's a it's a royal residence exactly so they said go there in basically look in the take-up Defensive positions and try to negotiate a deal but there. You're you're still.

"This podcast is supported by mass mutual. Listen to the first episode of the fair shares podcast host and financial guru bullish condie advices a mother juggling pandemic job loss and caring for her son with special needs in the weeks. Since the taliban has taken control of afghanistan there have been a lot of promises in glowing forecasts about what their future will look like this idea that they have changed that they will protect the rights of women that they will refrain from violence and repair relations with foreign enemies but people all over. The world are wondering. How much has changed whether this really is. A new taliban. Griff was in afghanistan in two thousand and two shortly after the us invasion and he saw those first months of what it was like. After the taliban had left there was this mood of real euphoria and joy on the streets of kabul then and a sense of new beginnings. It was springtime but literally felt like springtime in terms of the emotions of the people. When i talked with people in the city they would tell me. This is a country that has been at war for twenty years. But it's over now and we're going to have peace in this country and they were particularly relieved that the taliban were gone because for the people of kabul the taliban were an alien invading force and they were never accepted there by a very large percentage of the people and they were regarded as extraordinarily cruel and people who meted out very harsh punishments and brooked absolutely no opposition and they did not tolerate a free press. They did not allow for women's rights. They persecuted minorities especially the hazara community. The minority shia community of afghanistan. And so when they left and they really and truly were gone they they left the city they left. All cities forgot afghanistan and retreated into the hills There was a sense of extreme relief and optimism about the future so it's been almost two decades since those beginning stages of the war. How has that reputation of the taliban started to change. Will i think for a very large number of guns. They have the same reputation that they always had. They are regarded as as cruel as vicious intent on killing and attacking their way into power. But the taliban have tried to rehabilitate their image in these twenty years. And what you've particularly seen. Since they took over in kabul last week is they have been trying to tell the world. We are not the same taliban that we were before we are different. Now we have changed. We have learned from our last experience in power. And if you have preconceptions about who we are and what we're about we're not dat and that is very much the message that you see emanating from the top leadership of the movement right now the sense that yes we know we have a pretty horrid reputation internationally but it's been twenty years and we've learned a thing or two and are you seeing the international community buying that believing that this is a taliban that is fundamentally different from twenty years ago i think the international community doesn't know what to think very first of all i think that the united states in the west are almost exclusively focused at this point on getting their people out of ghanistan of of evacuating people by the airport. But i think that also they really don't know what this group has an in mind. They don't know what the taliban intend. We spoke last week to a very senior. Us official who had just watched the taliban spokesman give this extremely dramatic press conference in kabul. The spokesman's name is berlin mushahid and he gave this press conference in which he unveiled himself to the world for the first time. He's been the voice of the taliban for years but his face was an utter mystery. No one outside of the the organization had seen his face because in the media appearances that he did it was always covered or blurred and his message at that. Press conference was an extremely conciliatory. One he said we in the taliban. We are going to offer a an amnesty to the people who fought us and opposed us. We are not going to persecute minorities. We are going to make sure that women's rights are protected women who'd be afforded more their rights whether it is at work for other activities women are a key part of society and we guarantee all their rights within the limits of he gave this press conference in which he said all of the things that the international community wants to hear. But we spoke to this. Us official afterwards and he said we don't know what to make of it. The optimistic take is that they really have learned some lessons from their last run in power and they're going to be different. This time the pessimistic take is that this is a group that has fundamentally not changed. They are a bunch of ideologues. They have a very strict very well defined interpretation islam and that it would be foolish to expect anything different so tell people understand this group that is now in control of afghanistan. Can you explain a little bit more about who are the taliban like is this a religious group. Is this a political group. How should we think about them as an entity so the taliban is a little over a quarter century old they were founded in nineteen ninety. Four really they rose out of an incredibly combustible moment and afghanistan's history obviously all forty years Of of afghanistan's recent history have been very violent and combustible. There's there's been almost continuous war that entire time. But the period of the mid nineties was uniquely chaotic and destructive It was a time when the soviets had left there was a vacuum and there was all out civil war in the country and the taliban emerged as a new faction that said essentially. We're going to rise. Above the various factions that are fighting one another and we are going to unify the country under islamic law and we are going to end the corruption. We're going to end the warfare that has completely destroyed the country and we're going to bring security and peace and so what made them so popular like if they were able to get so much control over the country. I mean obviously some people must have supported them. So what were the things that they were doing. That were successful so this was a moment where there was lawlessness in afghanistan and there was extreme corruption. There was extreme Lack of government services of government support for anything. The government basically existed to to fight off other factions and the taliban came and started conquering cities. And saying we're going to bring justice. We're going to bring security. We are going to bring peace and we are going to keep you safe. And in in certain respects they did they brought Security certainly was security at the expense of liberty and at the expense of justice but they promised people we will bring some order to your life and we will bring out of this extreme.

"As taliban leadership have become the focus of global attention. they've made themselves out to be this kinder gentler version of the group that came before is this. What the hitch up in the donavan. Do not have any positi against any individual. Been the movement in the passage announced. There's all those who have worked for the other side for going on being given amnesty all and though they're saying that they herber no animosity that they'll forgive their opponents. Many of us are wondering. Is this really a new taliban from the newsroom of the washington post this is post reports. I'm martine powers. It's monday august twenty. Third evacuations are continuing at the airport. In kabul on sunday the us military was able to fly out about ten thousand people. Another six thousand people were able to leave on coalition planes but the us is running up against a serious deadline. The united states has promised that its troops will be out of the country by the end of august so a little over a week from now and yet is still a very large number of people who need to be evacuated. We don't know exactly. How many but certainly there are a large number of us. Citizens a large number of afghans. Who helped the united states through the twenty years of us involvement in afghanistan and the united states has an obligation to get each and every one of those people who wants to leave out of there but there is a time limit on it now. Griffin is a national reporter for the post and a former kabul bureau. Chief he says that the us essentially has eight days to continue to run flights out of the country after that. Evacuations will get a lot riskier. The taliban have said that they will not allow the united states to stay after august. Thirty first they will regard that as a violation of the agreement that the taliban and the us made with one another and so up until now there has been a very uneasy level of cooperation between the taliban and the us at that airport where the taliban control what is outside the airport. The united states controls the military side of what's within the airport and the to have in a very general way cooperated with each other not always well not always happily but there has been some level of cooperation and what you could see after august. Thirty first is that the taliban start to take an actively hostile approach to what the us is trying to do there. The us has not finished by august thirty first and so. I think that everyone in the us bureaucracy. In the at the state department at the pentagon is going to be quite desperate over the next eight days to get everyone they can out of there and not risk going beyond that august thirty first deadline. What the taliban will do if the us brake system line is a big question and this is one of many things that us government is basically trying to guess on how willing taliban to follow through on their threats and how willing are they to follow through on their promises. Those are questions that we're talking about with griff today but first a little more about the situation at the airport. Us officials are insisting that american citizens can get through to the airport unimpeded. On sundays secretary of state. Antony blinken said the administration is doing everything they can to bring americans to safety president sector defensive in clear that we will do whatever it takes to get americans home and out of harm's way but but griff has heard from people on the ground is much more complicated. Chaotic is almost not a strong enough word for it. there is no process in place the evacuation was supposed to be an orderly one. There was supposed to be a system for making sure that american citizens that afghans who assisted the americans in afghanistan That other third country nationals. Were were able to leave the country in an orderly way and over the past week. We've seen anything but that day after day. The airport has descended into total anarchy. You have people who thousands and thousands of people have come to the airport. Some of them have been promised to flight out but some of them are just going there because they're so desperate to leave because they have so much fear for what will happen next in their country and you see the americans trying to create an environment where their planes can fly and where they can process people and get them out and you do see in some respects some progress made i think the united states announced ten thousand people had had been evacuated yesterday which is certainly an improvement from where we were but outside of the wire outside of the perimeter of the airport. You still see these very chaotic scenes where people are so desperate to leave. And the taliban out there whipping people and there are gunshots in the air and it is anything but the orderly evacuation that was was promised so for the people who are successfully able to evacuate especially the people who are afghan citizens. Were they ending up. And what happens to them after they leave so the. Us has been taking people to doha cutter and there is a an airfield there where people have been housed but really. It doesn't get a whole lot better afterwards. It it gets better in the sense that it's much more secure. Certainly but but it remains a very haphazard process. You have a very large number of people being housed at this facility and cutter where there isn't adequate access to things.

"Shit like that All that was brought under government control because they were all a threat to their ideology. Right you can't have people learning how democracy works have people criticizing the government in the paper. You know so. They shut down newspapers. They you know we started keeping records of who's going to religious services They also burnt books and shit That weren't supportive of the revolution. Which once he starts in books burned you know. Just bad sign And you know they started swapping out teachers from the south to the north now. I could see the taliban taking over the news media pretty easily. And i think they're kind of already are right there. I mean they're holding press conferences and shit right so i think they've they've got that unlock the makeup of the taliban like i said before his is just mostly young men An uneducated minute. That's not entirely sure how they would replace things like teachers. I think that would be very difficult for them to do If they were to do anything that would just try as you said to force people into these midrasz and they would need probably outside help to get those funded But if they were to succeed in that that would be obsolete disastrous for the future economy and more so for the you know the kids remember forty. Five percent of them are under the age of fifteen. So there's that now. I could talk a bit more running a little bit long. I can summarize a few additional points big differences between Vietnam north vietnam and the taliban that obviously the the the enemies are are a communist regime. And they you know they basically communist the entire economy so they confiscated all private property in the nationalized. Every business and it backfired really quickly because things like collectivized farmers and not really having incentives on production caused everything to fall rapidly so much so that they were gonna famine. That's probably not going to happen with the taliban because they're obviously not communists in that respect but something tells me that that that the taliban aren't exactly The right people for the job of running a government..

"Inter-afghan negotiations with the elected government of ashraf. Ghani i'm now the fourth united states president to preside over american troop presence in afghanistan to republicans to democrats. I will not pass this responsibility onto a fifth amid rasheed says in its heist to leave the. Us has agreed to a deal. That's lift the taliban holding all the cards. I think the way. The taliban are moving to capture the whole of afghanistan installed themselves involved. I think they have no intentions of doing away with any of these militant groups them. But it's not just kinda de protecting multiple pakistani militant groups that are central asian chinese hold these miniature groups. Many of them are finding the taliban they constitute a real threat to the national community. And the fact is that the taliban have not fulfilled their promise. It was an hundred agreement of the taliban which immediately start controlling al-qaida and these other groups and in fact the last one year the census agreement was made with the americans. None of these militant groups have been apprehended or taken under control or toll to leave the country. They're all active. What exactly did the west will. What did the us get out of that. Deal with the taliban what i think. I'm certainly not saying. I think the. Us made a huge mistake by basically giving away too much. They said they'd release you. Know they released five thousand prisoners. They allowed the taliban leaders to fly around the world and meet with world leaders. They gave enormous concessions to the taliban which were absolutely ludicrous in the light of what subsequently has happened with the taliban are now using those concessions to be able to launch attacks all over afghanistan. I think the us made a big mistake. They lost their bag. Need chimps early on. They announced a withdrawal to fought too early. Which the taliban of course welcomed and the americans are not electoral. Absolutely nothing to log in with. And it's really left up. God president of the government a- show gunny in the doldrums because they have nothing to argue with the afghan president. Ashraf ghani is on record as saying the withdrawal of us. Nato troops has come too soon and afghan forces are already being overwhelmed. The full departure of us forces was to have coincided with the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. But that's been brought forward to the end of august a power sharing agreement between the taliban and the government of ashraf. Ghani is still a possibility but is looking less likely made a dramatic escalation in fighting. They want to be in the strongest possible position militarily in going to the negotiating table so that they can extract the largest share of power possible from the escon government. You know what's ostensibly a power-sharing agreement but one in which the taliban essentially dominate what do you think is the more likely outcome that there is a power sharing agreement that we end up with a civil war. The ladder to me. A civil war is more likely. I think both the taliban and the government you know nowhere near you know the same page in terms of their demands and their asks what they want the. Us is unable to exercise any sort of leverage on either side. And and of course this withdrawal was unconditional wasn't conditioned on any kind of power sharing agreement. So we have two sides that are unwilling to compromise. The taliban is engaging in violence and so there is a war already going on and it will just intensify given the fact that the us Is out the door. Nato forces are out the gore. What we are going to see is likely a civil war. So what's the future for. Afghanistan should the taliban ashim majority or even full control of the country that talent governments that they invasion putting into face will be radically different from the islamic republic pakistan. Democracy that exists. Now there will be no democracy. There will be no human rights within vision. is islamic rights envision. I'm much more strongly islamic justice system. Of course the current afghan justice system is a mix of sharia and more secular law but the taliban justice system would be purely sharia. We've seen their sharia courts. You would have islamic clerics playing a much larger role in the government. Certainly there would be no elections. Certainly women's participation in government and swells in life in general and in society would be severely curtailed. You'd have no freedom of expression. I would imagine you'd have vast sense of the media and the media has been one of the sectors that's been so vibrant since one is really grown that without all disappear so life in society with would fundamentally change pretty profoundly mr under future taliban government.

"taliban" Discussed on The Daily

"Roads are just digging up because they were laid by the americans. They say we don't need these so really some one-ton destruction which just sliding to see because there's a lot of effort that went into all that. Let me ask this. What do afghans want. I think every afghan will tell you they want peace. They want peace and security. They want to be able to get the fruit to market. They won't get raised their kids that the people who are appealing to me to help to get out usually saying they're doing it for their children in especially the girls they come back to see them have to sit at home and be robbed of an education just because they're girls so that's the main thing people want. The kids want go to school. The families want to be able to earn a living and have safety and so a taliban win could bring a forced piece but most people are predicting that they weren't because they're trying to take control by force and so the will be inevitably resistance and opposition and so the war will go on. There's no doubt the afghans have been fighting for forty years and the probably gonna fight fo for many more carlotta. Thank you okay. Pleasure great back.
