Why Haven't the 9/11 Defendants in Guantanamo Been Put on Trial?

"Look at 9 11, and I say to myself, why is it taking so long to try some of these guys? And I'm thinking here specifically of Khalid Sheik Muhammad, who was the primary sort of organizer of 9 11. Now bin Laden was the sort of initiating force probably the guy who put up the money and certainly the head of the operation and then a man Al zawahiri his number two, but Khalid Sheik Muhammad was the guy who sort of pulled it off. And yet Khalid Sheik Muhammad is awaiting trial. And 9 years since charges were filed. First of all, it took almost a decade to file the charges. And now it's taken another decade. And we're not even close to having a trial. No data has been set. They keep having occasional hearings. They keep arguing about evidence, the defense keeps saying that you need to give us more information, the prosecutors appear to be an absolutely no hurry. Of course, there is the fact that some of these prisoners are still in Guantanamo. By the way, the Guantanamo population is really been thinned out at one point there were hundreds. I mean, almost 700 Islamic terrorists sometimes all the way from Khalid Sheik Muhammad to the ordinary fighters on the ground. Many of those people have been released. They're actually only 39. Now left in Guantanamo. And that itself has been a disgrace of its own. I mean, think, for example, about Obama and the Bergdahl deal, where he gets one lousy disorder, by the way, one basic Democrat. Back, this guy Bergdahl, complete loser, and exchanges Bergdahl for 5 season Taliban commanders. At least one of which is now sitting in the Taliban government in Afghanistan and really laughing his head off at the stupidity of the United States. Now, Khalid Sheik Muhammad has admitted his guilt. I did it. I'm the guy. And you would think that they would be a prompt military trial, and the guy would be like executed.

"There, bread, work, freedom, and that's a reminder that the Taliban government have banned girls from secondary school, informally pushed most women out of work and have ordered them to cover up and stay home. Taliban security forces disperse them by firing volleys of bullets over their heads and just a warning. You're going to hear the sound of gunfire here. Once we had all fled to safety, one young protester said she wanted to remind the world that women like her did not consent to this government. Okay, so we're talking about their detractors, their critics are supporters today, but it's been a year since they've come into power. Can you give us a sense of what that year has been like for the country? It's been a year of hunger, sanctions that were meant to punish Taliban leaders have batted the economy. They've plunged Afghanistan into a humanitarian catastrophe, more than 90% of Afghans don't eat enough food. There's not enough aid to go around and you can see it on the streets. People are going men and women and children plead for money. But the UN's appeal to deal with this crisis is underfunded.

"It's because they have been left behind by the rest of the world. It's why people around the world have been calling for a waiver on. Covert nineteen patents. The world's alana gordon has researched the history of waivers. And what they tell us about the present moment alana. What's the talk of current waiver about so under the current system companies that develop the shots get a patent or the exclusive rights for a certain number of years and then during that time they control who manufacturers the vaccines were distributed at. What price and win now. This waiver carol would temporarily changed that structure it would lift the patents and now we in theory it would open the door for independent manufacturers like in the global south to make vaccines to expand the supply so this was proposed nearly a year ago at the world trade organization. What's up with now. So it's really controversial and it's still being debated but the thing is all requires a global consensus at the wto to pass which the stalemate about many stress that the patent structure really incentivizes innovation and research. I mean these co vaccines carol. They've been a total lifeline for the world and also these new vaccines are complicated. They require a special expertise but at the same time. The waiver proposal did not come out of the blue. There's a precedent for it. I recently dug into the story of a patent conflict that dates back twenty years.

"Answer that question in one thousand nine hundred thousand six the scenes in kabul not too different from today the taliban rolled into the capital and took over by force but not all of afghanistan was on their control. Parts of the country resisted mainly in the north the former president even continue to represent afghanistan at the united nations. Have because you still have that continuity of that claim of government and other parts of atkin territory that taliban didn't quite fully control the united states' international community resisted recognizing that scott anderson is a fellow at the bookings institution only three countries recognized the taliban in the nineteen nineties pakistan the united arab emirates and saudi arabia for the most part afghanistan on the taliban rule was an international paranoia more than two decades later. The world finds itself in a similar predicament. Governments are weighing whether or not to officially recognize the group that took power by force. The taliban has put together an interim government that's not inclusive and has members who are on the international sanctions and wanted lists as for the taliban scott anderson says they need international recognition. Recognition brings governments. Lara regimes i suppose to recognize as governments a lot of international legal benefits diplomatic immunity. For example would give taliban officials the ability to travel outside the country without the risk of being arrested that actually big issue for the taliban because figures involved in their current interim government such as the head of the county network who's the new interior ministry are wanted criminals in a good part of the world ended benefits to if the us recognizes the taliban. Then they can eventually get access to afghanistan's financial assets in the united states this week sixty of st antony blinken was asked if the taleban is the legitimate government of coniston defacto government of afghanistan. Those other words whatever. The biden administration does the taliban is now in charge of afghanistan. Meanwhile the european union hasn't decided on the issue yet. Either says judy dempsey. She's with the carnegie endowment for international peace and is based in berlin. The discussion is on two levels own. The highest political level there is now consensus that the european union should start sending humanitarian aid and assistance to the afghan people but also awareness that in some ways dismissal legitimize the taliban government but europeans are doing this out of the sake of the alter the afghan people and doing it. I was self interest to one third refugees at the same time dempsey says many in europe just want to wash their hands off afghanistan and focus fixing problems at home some experts say foreign governments can use recognition and humanitarian aid as leverage to pressure the taliban on human rights. Them says she's not convinced. We have to be very clear. If we're going to use the word leverage what exactly this means and what means do we have to actually implement this leverage. Some powers in the region are making their own calculations based on their interests russia and iran for example or keeping their embassies open in kabul pakistan has had a long relationship with the taliban and in the northeast china is taking stock of the situation and johnson is a china expert with the council on foreign relations. China's primary interest in afghanistan is security. It shares a small border with afghanistan and is worried about the preceived threat of terrorism. That could emanate from their china. Also see some potential economic benefits in afghanistan like in mining and infrastructure. For its part. Afganistan could really use china's help. West has mainly cut off aid. And we don't have ghanistan is highly dependent on aid for its economy so china can step in and maybe not replace the west. But at least keep the coffers somewhat filled then that would be really really important and i think the countries that could do that. China is the main one. Russia would probably like to do something like that. But i think russia locks the financial muscle economic muscle to do that kind of thing. The afghan people of course are caught in the middle of all this on the one hand. Recognition from the international community would help the economy but for those afghans who despise the talk about formal recognition for the group would be betrayal this week about two dozen former afghan diplomats put out a statement asking the international community not to recognize the taliban the taliban meanwhile are doing their own outreach. They met pitt. Un officials and ask for sanctions sanctions to be lifted. An off financial assets to be unfrozen for the world and she jafari tolo. News is afghanistan's most popular and hard.

He joins us at 705. But I do want to follow up on this story We discussed yesterday they had to do with these planes. These were private charters of Organizations that were trying to rescue Afghans as well as US citizens who are still there. No U. S government planes trying to rescue American citizens. These are private charters, and they those planes had been held now it and the bite administration by the way, said that they had nothing to do with these planes being held. They said, you know, They dismissed any claim that the State Department was getting in the way of rescuing these flights, even though we had, um uh, Congressman Ronnie Jackson on the show, saying the State Department you know they're doing nothing to help and they're standing in the way, they said it's not true. But now Fox has obtained emails showing a State Department official saying two gentlemen, I'm retired Marine Eric Montalvo, who is chartering these vacuum evacuation flights, saying that those planes would not be allowed. To land on any U. S military bases or land in the United States of America that basically couldn't get their flight manifest out because they had nowhere to land. They were they try to file it, and the State Department said Nope. You will not be allowed to fly those planes to a U. S base or to mainland United States. That is absolutely stunning. Especially as we watch these planes come in, filled with Afghan refugees. I mean, why are American citizens being held in a lurch by their own government when you're abroad, and you get in trouble? You're told to go to the embassy or to contact the State Department so that you can get safe passage home. That has always been the expectation for Americans when when you travel, That is no longer the case, thanks to what happened in Afghanistan. Who are Americans supposed to trust now that when they travel abroad, and something goes down, that they're going to be able to get home, it looks like the State Department and the administration's bigger concern is, uh, angering the Taliban government. They want to stay on their good side. Meanwhile, Americans continue to be kept in that country against their will. It's 6 29. Why is Inova Schar Cancer Institute, the.

Ron dutch is head of special projects at the wickham media foundation. The nonprofit that owns and operates wikipedia denny. Thanks very much and thank you for having me. Here's another impact of the pandemic authoritarianism and extremism seemed to be surging across the globe. Luke cooper has been tracking this. He's an associate researcher. The london school of economics and the author of a new book called authoritarian contagion. He joins us from london to be clear. Luke your book is not about disease contagion but contagion as a metaphor for how authoritarianism spreads so. Let's get meta here. How has authoritarianism been on the rise through this highly contagious disease cove nineteen. Yeah absolutely inc. They replicate in very different ways. I mean i thought. I think the current authoritarianism as phenomena which is almost universally. Close the weld. It does pre exist corona virus and in some ways the jury still out on how exactly this is going to impact it. The pandemic is still going on and the mix of policies that you've seen from different governments who live the world. We identify one clear case. That authoritarianism is green lighted by the coin of rbis pandemic or it's been thrown into decline. It's a much more variable a mix so covet. Nineteen is being a really kind of complicated issue for the visable authoritarianism. It's still not quite clear. How exactly it will play out. So i want to get to china but maybe you can give me an example. The kind of policy just talked about that. You believe could have accelerated authoritarianism. The kind of policy around covert say. This does normalize level of state intervention into people's individual personal liberties deeply-felt personal liberties. The is clearly historically. I think unprecedented in many societies. Not to say out is something that we should be concerned about to some degree. I think is necessary to have that attempt to suppress the virus or was necessary before that we're vaccines and but we should be cautious around. We've introducing mechanisms that way introduced in an exceptional environment that then become semi permanent. Yes so a lot of things. Converging authoritarianism disease privacy issues. Let me just ask you what you see is the risk of obligatory vaccine passports in this discussion. I suppose what the questions that we need to ask about. Is the way i would frame response. So who controls the information. How is it allowed to be used. What clinton democratic scrutiny to citizens have and what kind of rights as individuals citizens have a how their information is used. So i would guess basically counsel caution on vaccine paul sports than say a flat and categorical not to them. So look if you look at china. The desk the reported ones anyway or among the lowest in the world per capita we know. China is an authoritarian state. But are those low numbers the result of authoritarianism or simply good governance. I think used that very strong institutional structures that they've built extremely effectively to protect public health. And say did they're very totalitarian more to help them. Yes i think it probably did because when you say to citizens in hand and the government says to them you can't leave your house tool and we're going to monitor this on a street by street level with local teams that something it in a totalitarian society is much more culturally acceptable to the population than it would be in a democratic society so i would be very cautious about upholding china as a model to the of course there is something that we can not any from china will say am democratic societies like taiwan south korea. Australia new zealand that at least in the first phase of the pandemic were much more effective at suppressing the virus. I'm speaking with researcher. Luke cooper at the london school of economics about the rise of authoritarianism during the pandemic. is there a country. Luke that you've seen has clearly become more authoritarian during the pandemic. i think the huge power. That's emma ban. A hungry has given gave to himself under. The auspices of corona virus is something we should be worried about. But to be honest he was looking for any opportunity to give himself and will power is a very very authoritarian government. I mean it does show the slippery slope of where we are in this moment. Where exactly would you say this leaves. Democracy can be restored in some of the places where it seems to be retreating. Yeah well let's spies in some ways you guys in across the pond all the big test question. The case study that everyone is looking at. And i think that there were features of the new authoritarianism. The donald trump's government in the us really closely encapsulated. I want to the biden administration is now tossed with doing is to try to say well look. Can we protect american democracy from this ongoing threat. On what's the best way to do that. And i think in some ways will looking at the united states to see whether the social justice agenda the economic agenda be strong enough that it really builds the legitimacy of the democratic project as it were so what should stronger democracies like the us and others be doing to empower democratic values around the world. It sounds like that's where the hopeless. Yeah i think in some ways it is. We're example the proposal that they've made at the world trade organization to suspend patents on corona virus vaccines. I think that's hugely important. Because democracy is going to mean anything has to be to deliver social justice and public health for the populations of the entire weld on a universal basis. And at the moment we have a terrible vaccine apartheid's situation where most of the wealthy weld is the vaccinated all going to be back stated quite soon and the poorest counties in the world on vaccinated so i very much welcome biden coming behind people's vaccine but those are the kinds of policies. The i would like to see democrats are putting forward. So the people's vaccine does that in some way promote obligatory vaccination and is that in line with values of democracy like individual freedom. I'm not keen on the idea of obligatory vaccination. I'm not sure about it. Ethically and i'm not sure about it practically the so if you choose not to be back stated unfortunately it's not just a personal choice because you're making it more likely that the virus was spread so your personal choice does affect other people so it's not an easy easy issue and I don't think the people's maxine promotes obligatory backs nation is roth Giving everyone in the world the opportunity to have at the back station. And that's the crucial..

"Severe droughts are paralyzing parts of the globe including old farmlands in iraq syria. Some farmers there are moving to the cities ages plan to leave these areas desert though because they just calm live on these lands anymore and reinforcing the honor system. All of wikipedia. Three hundred plus languages ahead. You're on the world. i'm marco werman. You're with the world where co production of gbh boston and pr x. This week as we approach the twentieth anniversary of the september eleventh attacks. We're looking at how the events that day have changed our world over the last two decades as we've seen in afghanistan summer the impact continues. It was just a week and a half ago when member of isis k. Blew himself up killing scores of afghans and thirteen american military at the kabul airport on that day august. Twenty six twenty twenty. One president biden was blunt. We will not forgive. We will not forget we will hunt you down and make you pay biden's words echo those of another. Us president twenty years earlier. Make no mistake. The united states will hunt down and punish those responsible for these cowardly acts president. George w bush on september eleventh two thousand one and yet what the. Us understands about terrorist. Threats has changed dramatically. The twenty years between those two moments we asked robin right to help us unpack what we have learned in that time. She's a foreign affairs analyst and a reporter and joins us from washington after the kabul airport. Attack robin you wrote in the new yorker that quote the central flaw in. Us strategy is the belief that military force can eradicate extremist groups or radical ideologies. So how many times since two thousand one have you written that sentence. Well i've written it actually since the nineteen eighties when president. Reagan promised after the suicide bombing of the marine peacekeepers in lebanon that he would get revenge and of course his will which was responsible for that bombing is today not only larger it is one of the most dominant militias in the entire middle east and is a major political player. Dick is back to august of two thousand one did the. Us government then have an accurate picture of the biggest threats facing the country not at all in fact condoleeza rice who is in the national security adviser to george w bush was scheduled to give a speech at johns hopkins university. The morning of nine eleven and it was to outline the bush administration's priorities in foreign policy. And it was largely about missile defense at nothing no references to terrorism al qaeda despite the fact that united states have been attacked the world trade center in nineteen ninety-three that al qaeda had engaged in these attacks at the us embassies tanzanian and kenya. Al qaeda was for eight years a highly visible enemy of the united states that had effectively killed. Hundreds of americans injured thousands more. You speak with. Military people with diplomats With americans in and out of government. What do they say about the. Us mission in afghanistan. How effective it was at eliminating the threat of al-qaeda. I think stunning thing is that many in the military as some very high levels of said to me is that the united states never really understood afghanistan and i think that personally has mirrored throughout the middle east. We keep engaging in conflicts whether it's in iraq or syria historically in lebanon and we really don't understand what has fond extremism. What is on the alienated and disillusion with local governments as well as foreign influence and that in turn has evolved into a dominant political alternative. That has changed the global political spectrum. You've reporter robin on the growing strength of groups with extreme And other parts of the world gives an example of a group that did not exist in two thousand one that you think poses a threat to the us today. Well this is the interesting thing i think. The danger of direct nine eleven type attack against the united states is much diminished. I think the thing we have to worry about is the growing anti american sentiment twenty years after nine eleven. That has not gone away. it's only deepened. And the sense among many throughout the world including among some of our allies that the united states is weakened that we spent a trillion dollars twenty years of war in which a quarter of a million people on all sides died and yet at the end of the day. We had to scurry out of afghanistan to allow the taliban to take over and in the taliban sweep across afghanistan. Al qaeda operatives were the elite force multipliers. They are the best fighter they provided. Intelligence strategy and al qaeda today is larger than it was nine eleven how has us counterterrorism strategy evolves since the emergence of all qaeda or these lessons being learned. You think i think united states has adapted militarily it has developed a very impressive drone capability. The danger is particularly as we withdraw from some of these countries whether it's afghanistan iraq that when we engage in these over the horizon operations we can strike us our drones to strike as we did in afghanistan. A car that we believe is laden with explosives. The problem is that it also killed at least ten civilians. Seven of whom were children that it's much harder to fight militarily the operatives in afghanistan or beyond when we are using over the horizon capabilities we have eliminated through drone strikes air strikes the last four leaders of isis core sign and yet it is as strong as it was four years ago. If not stronger so in two thousand one there were not a lot of is on al qaeda's he said but if you look at the entire landscape of potential threats to the us and americans today. What are the top areas of concern. Would you say in two thousand twenty one. Well i think the top areas of concern will be american targets that are maybe not in the homeland but our american diplomats or the small military teams. We have deployed places like iraq and syria and as well the soft targets. Whether it's ngos or american do voters who are trying to help societies transform. I think the thing that striking to me having covered this trend now for almost forty years dating back to the iranian revolution and derived extremist groups in lebanon is the fact that in places like mozambique i was the mozambican nineteen seventy five for its independence from portuguese. Colonialism is a country that sixty percent christian and the united states last month sanctioned on isis of yet that is taken deep root in mozambique and that is killed many people so the challenge for the united states on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven in the aftermath of withdrawing from afghanistan is finding the tools to deal effectively with the flash points. That have generated jihadism robin. Reid is a fellow at the woodrow wilson center and a columnist for the new yorker speaking with us about the american response to continuing extremist threats.

Neurons are two human brains without them. A lot of our stuff would not work. But there's currently chaos playing out in one part of the semiconductor supply chain in asia and as the world's patrick win reports that's having a ripple effect across the globe. Creating tiny microchips is complicated. The raw silicone to make the chip might come from courts. Mind from a mountain in the us. And then some robots taiwan or south korea might stamp that silicon into a microchip and then an army of workers. Somewhere else has to make sure. Each chip works these days. That somewhere else is often malaysia southeast asian country with a huge electronic sector. If anything happens to these supply from asia that will be a disruption in the global supply chain. co high. wong is president of the malaysia semiconductor industry association and wong says there is a big problem in malaysian factories.

Don'the very has ripped through southeast asia. In recent months in homes offices even factories now a microchip factory is a surgically clean place where workers are covered and all sorts of protective gear. Long says the dress is free. Protect gallons okay lint free gowns. So debris from a worker's clothing cannot get on the microchips they wear hoods as well and they inspect chips in class. One thousand rooms which means lots of air filters basically you can eat off the floor so it's not easy to spread cova in those factories but still jealous to the factory is that they need to prevent Into factory long says the government will make it plant closed down if workers show up with the co virus. So he gets like this. You'll be shut down for ten to fourteen days and affected the supply chain again and that can cause headaches as far away as kansas city. Where a ford auto factory plant had to stop making f. One fifty trucks because it couldn't get microchips from malaysia. About one in four microchips ship to the. Us goes through malaysia. To make everything from trucks to dishwashers missiles and the timing of this covert surge in malaysia. A key hub and the supply chain is bad. There's already a huge global shortage of microchips.

"Marco werman. You're with the world. Thanks for being with us. The taliban unveiled a few names today in their new caretaker government. The top slots will be shared by an influential religious figure. Along with the head of the taliban's political bureau carter mccain has been watching the power struggles behind the formation of the new regime. He's lived in helmand province and advise former chair of the joint chiefs of staff. Joseph dunford on afghanistan. volcanoes is currently in arlington virginia. I asked mathie saw any signs of tolerance or moderation in the new line-up there are some signs of moderation. When you look like broader being nominated as one of the two first deputies abdelghani barada that's right and a mole mohammed. Hassan clinton himself who has been declared the leader of the new government. There is some information in the nineties. It he spoke out against the taliban having relationship with al qaeda. Now that information is a little bit too sketchy to have a firm sense of what his direction is going to be. But that's a little bit of a reason to be somewhat encouraged. But on the other hand you have thriving. Connie ask minister of interior. The conifers has been known to conduct many many terrorist. Attacks and suicide bombings inside of afghanistan is skilled large numbers of innocent civilians and the Itself is known to have connections tell qaeda. So let's break down that list malla. Hassan kunas prime minister with taliban co founder. Mullah abdul ghani borrowed ours. Deputy does that pairing makes sense. I mean these are the guys who are going to presumably run. The country right is so muhammad sauna coned is someone that is known as a member of the taliban but nada names it would regularly come up in terms of who's running the military campaign or even who might have been directing some decisions that remain on the political side of things. Mullah barada was kind of the favourite by people who were trying to guess who'd be the actual leader of the taliban bent positions. Deputy makes sense. He's been deputy for political affairs now. He's going to continue to be a face to the outside world. I think that makes a lot of sense to and so janine hi connie the new acting interior minister. He's head of course cacani network. It's a us designated terrorist organization. Connie has a five million dollar bounty on his head does disappoint. Make an impossible for the us to recognize the new regime. This appointment is gonna make very difficult for. The united states have relations with the new regime. It's gonna make it difficult for some of the surrounding countries also not to be very worried about the new regime. The hawk work is known to have close connections with pakistan so pakistan may be happy with us. But i think it's gonna make it difficult for russia. Iran china certainly india to have regular relations with ghanistan his appointment as minister interior. That's important initiative. Interior controls the police controls the internal forces in the country. And that's gonna be a lot of the taliban focus. their military effort is going to go in that direction. Probably more than trying to build an army or something like that to defend from the outside so still were in kind of a bit of a quandary to what the answers to the question is is the old taliban or the new taliban. We often hear that a more. Moderate wing of the taliban was living in luxury in doha while another wing of leadership with less tolerant views was fighting in the mountains and valleys of afghanistan for the past twenty years. Is that a useful way of thinking about taliban leadership divides right now. I'm not sure it's a terribly useful way to think about that. It's not known. How many serious disagreements exist between these groups in the people that we've seen point here. There are a lot from the nineties regime and even the ones who are not as is well known from that time. Still have roots back. Then i mean if you look at the person of general intelligence. The person in charge of culture and the person in charge of borders. All three of those were released from guantanamo. All three of those were people who were deeply involved in in the regime in the nineteen nineties. So you have a strong connection there but then you also have people sirajjidin in uku. Whoever newer generation but still have these these ties. The older generation is there any scenario where a woman has a role in this government. It's not likely it and it's just not likely to. The taliban will be able to do. We'll be willing to do that. Even even for optics would become very difficult because the optics can be interpreted by certain numbers of their branches. As a lack of commitment and a lack of determination carter malaysian author of the american war afghanistan a history and a former political adviser in helmand province for the us.
