3:34 am
u. s. military personnel. many more were also wounded by twin bombings outside cobbles, airport. the attacks claimed by an eye so off shoot, came as little surprise to many who had been warning of a security threat in the area for days. despite that thousands of people still gathered outside the airport, waiting for the evacuations to be process will happen. close to the abbe gate entrance of cobble airport, and near the barren hotel, and just a few days before the august 31st deadline for a complete u. s. military withdraw from the country. us president joe biden has resisted cause to extend that date until all americans and afghans that are listed are flown out. the president has vowed to strike back at the attackers to those who carried out this attack as well as anyone wishes america harm. no. this. we will not forgive, we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay
3:35 am
how defend our interest in our people with every measure at my command or the head of the us central command said it is coordinating with the taliban to secure the airport tawan condemned the attacks and said it is not responsible for the security failure. there's this attack, but then there's also the situation runs the airport, the gatherings of tens of thousands of people around couple airports is a suitable location for these attackers. this is, in fact, the security mas handling a big error from their part and a big mistake. we've warned the foreign forces several times of the repercussions of large gathering around the airport. a correspondent child stratford has more now from cobble. there are going questions being asked about the taliban is ability to deal with what analysts say is an increasing threat from iso in afghanistan. a threat that has been made worse because during the ton of bonds offensive towards
3:36 am
cobble, they went into prisons opened the doors in order to be able to free tale fighters. but in that process, so some analysts say thousands of ice fighters who so fried the situation is be made worse because of the amount of weapons now available to groups like this weapons that fell into the hands of the taliban. that were common date from the a, the afghan national army, and us and nato forces. but some experts saying a lot of these weapons of also fallen into the hands of i. so now the pentagon said that there has been cooperation between us and nato forces. and the taliban during this evacuation operation and the taliban has said that he will not allow either homegrown or foreign terror organizations to use this country as a base to attack foreign countries or course target inside afghanistan. but
3:37 am
there are questions being asked as to whether that level of cooperation between the u. s. and the taliban that we've seen during this evacuation right evacuation operation will continue once nato forces leave. but one thing is for sure that it is in both the us nato countries and the taliban interest to prevent an organization that already presents a threat to this country. for the world shall stop at the inside story trouble. so what do we know about? i saw horse and also known as ice. ok, that's claimed responsibility for the attacks while the group was formed in 2014 by break away fighters of the pakistani taliban and fighters from afghanistan who pledged allegiance to the late iso leader of the battle in bus. daddy, the name caught a san refers to a historical region that included pots that would today be in iraq, afghanistan, and took medicine. ice ok has been responsible for some of the worst attacks,
3:38 am
enough canister on pakistan in recent years. talking girl schools, hospitals, and a maternity ward. it is considered the most extreme and violent of all the militant groups in afghanistan. it has major differences with the taller bon accusing it of abandoning our struggle in favor of negotiated peace deals with washington. the last spring in august, now from cobble we have by the love, by here a political analyst and electra of transitional justice at the american university of afghanistan and from pittsburgh, calling clock director of policy and research at the sou, find group, a security and intelligence consulting firm and from doha, so tom bought a carts director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the doha institute. thank you all for joining us. how by de la, let me start with you. obviously, a horrible situation in afghanistan right now with the aftermath of this attack and
3:39 am
lots of worries about what's going to happen next and security. not just around the airport, but throughout, throughout, cobble in the country as a whole. what happened yesterday was a shock to all of us. the shock was that every one was talking about it. there were reports, there were intelligence reports indicating something like that could happen. it was a very soft target. and it still happened the little glimmer of hope that the youth enough on the spot had the educated youth was that despite everything that we had traded in a week. but that is a piece that the war was over. that the scale of the killing that used to happen every day in a fun fun wasn't going to be seen anymore. let's turn to call and clock in
3:40 am
pittsburgh could, could an attack like this happen again? it could happen again, and that's what everybody is concerned about. i think tensions are high right now. you know, the intelligence bells were ringing and they were right. you know, administration said an attack was eminent and we saw one. we know that i s k has the capability. we know that they have the intent and they're very likely planning the next round of attacks. this could be the beginning of a sustained terrorist campaign, bias k. and then so tom bought a car. is this a glimpse of more chaos to come? it's actually a reminder to the on that now that locked into cover. and there is no way to secure the city without working with everyone else, whether the city, the city of 6000000 people and on territory to them. and without a serious condition where the leader is on the ground,
3:41 am
i think i'd like to see more of this kind of insistence falling between the lines of mandate and to toria, security between probably been under united states. and this is, i think what's happened, a small area ended up almost under no one's control as the subject to avoid the us forces. and now i think it's a very important reminder that they must get their act very quickly together. and now it's a government stand to the others, their hands to the others, to join in running not just the city, but the whole country calling clock. how does this effect evacuation plans as they are right now? president biden, as of now, is sticking to that august 31st date for all of the evacuations to end. but if, if an attack like this, if there is a real possibility of an attack like this occurring again,
3:42 am
how do you get people into the airport? i mean, what about the logistics of this and the security challenges? it's incredibly difficult and i think that's what, since yesterday's attack, the military and the administration has been grappling but trying to figure out a different way of security. a way to introduce some white space between the airport, the military and the throngs of people that are descending on the airport. there's numerous vulnerable spots of soft targets, as we've seen. and we've got to figure out a way for the printer perimeter be pushed back and for individuals to be processed in screen before they get right up to the gate. the, the current situation and the current alignment. not sustainable. all but the line cobble, if i could turn back to you on this and still talking about the the security challenges here, we now have a kind of curious situation. now, something that wouldn't have been dreamt of just
3:43 am
a couple of years ago of the u. s. government trying to make common cause with the taller bond, the surgeons that it fought 20 years ago, against the, against the a shed enemy here and in ice. ok. what needs to be done to ensure security then for, for atkins? first off were hoping that the ice cave capacity or a capabilities aren't as large as what it looked like yesterday. the target bond with their own history of being an insurgent group and creating such disruptions for the republic before them should have some level of experience of how to deal or understand the protocols and procedures of such organizations. and that's politics. i mean, they have on people have accepted their new reality. those who aren't keeping the country are accepting the new reality that the same the bod, who are once an enemy for 2 decades,
3:44 am
are now people who are running this country. and it's really important that there is an engagement and there is a process for getting into the airport. your other guest mention the need for a humanitarian quarter or a buffer zone to make sure that everyone isn't standing at the gate. yesterday's incident, had everyone deflecting and pointing the responsibility at the other, even though it was a collective failure on everyone's part. there has to be a better administration off this and not starts with creating a government that starts with creating a central address for the americans to negotiate and talk to but really hoping that all sites can get their act together before such incidents become more common. so tom bought a caught some who supported this withdraw decision by president biden, will say that thursday's attack was only possible because the us troops were there in the 1st place that they weren't, they were such an easy target. but is,
3:45 am
is that argument to easy? you think the attack us forces on that seems to leave us straight to to increase the chaos in the country and such even the counter the g update of any coalition that may reach. so it's not just targeting states. and just if i have, shall i was to go back to the issue of the coordination that has been careful coordination on ever since the 29th february 2021st or contacting each other and jones offering on the ground, trudy. and also more recently, since the 13th of august, to avoid any crashes between their forces and under. so it's not a matter of lack of coordination terms of avoiding each other is how would you
3:46 am
physically stop keeper from moving to the airport? the way being evacuation plans have been announced largely to please people back home in the united states and britain, france and elsewhere have given the wrong impression to people that the gates are open to anyone who was wanting to leave up to understand to come to the airport and that has really pressure on, on their side is 5 reachers and has anybody about the position? i think they're down there. they stop the people coming to the airport and they're damned if they don't. and i think that situation should, should come on in and ideally, those countries should have had any recreation long, long ago and organized to draw their stuff, their families and associates, and happened by names and phone numbers, text messages,
3:47 am
whatever. but all of that unfortunately, was not in place. and it could be because the of the speed in which things have up and that in fact, as you may know, the actual into the planet about into couple was not planted for not by any, not by the, by the, by all the others. the plan was for them to stop on the outskirts of apple and president rodney to continue with the military and the police to secure the city while their americans take the apple. but that was preempted by the departure of the which was a surprise to everyone. and then the other leaders calling on the tiny band to secure the city so that there is no chaos and there's no looting going on to the city. so they, they're in one way or another, they have was forced to enter and they were not prepared. the other side was not
3:48 am
preferred. and we saw this house. but now with us there is a real pressure that they get their act together, calling clock. i know that public opinion in the u. s. before this month was pretty much against oh rather in favor of, of this withdrawal and not wanting to, to be in afghanistan for much longer. but has that changed now? because of this attack or does it both for some people, does it actually both to the argument that the u. s. needs to get out? i think it's the, i think it's the ladder. i think for many americans, it's going to be proof that united states has no place in afghanistan and should be leaving. you know, i do look at the polling data. i've been against the withdrawal from day one. and i think we also, as the other guys have acknowledged, have to recognize that there's a vacuum ration has been poorly planned. i know the administration is trying to put
3:49 am
out positive news about how many people have been evacuated from the country. and that's great. but you know, there's been a lot of happ hazard and a half hazard. nature of this evacuation and withdrawal essentially led in a direct line to what we saw yesterday. we lost 13 troops yesterday. this was a terrible day in the united states. afghanistan lost many, many citizens that were killed and moving innocent civilians including children. it's heartbreaking to watch this and i think we, you're right, there's immense pressure for the administration to get this right. they were caught off guard on a number of different scenarios. there's gotta be contingency planning. you've got to anticipate every possible scenario in a case like this when you're doing a non combatant evacuation operation. that should be war game doubt. we should have plans for every single possible scenario and it's clear that we didn't well by dollar. where does the, what does the taliban go from here?
3:50 am
not just in terms of providing security, adequate security, but just the day to day governing of cobble because we know that, you know, quite a lot of thousands of afghans of left already many of them skilled people. people who are part of the previous government, is there a sense that there are actually many of them are actually needed to to, to help the taliban govern the country? before i move on to your question, just a quick comment on 1st off. i'd like to thank call them to a guest for recognizing that they were up on who gave their lives up yesterday because the parents, the president biden, didn't notice. and you're a guest, but a car could very well be a speaker for the movement itself. he talks about the coordination agreements between the parliament in the u. s. he really needs to go outside the airport of one to see the impeccable nature off that coordination. these people don't speak the same language. there is no middle people and it's all extremely have hazard.
3:51 am
that being said, with regards to where the pile upon go from here. if the brain drain is a real concern for the power button movement there really have to come up with trust. building measures with the on people the upon ministries, even though not functional major. the yet have departments for engineers that have 2 remaining out of 20 engineers. this is not going to be a functional, sustainable system if it stays this way. so either the pile upon convince the people that are not true course and obviously they cannot hold educated populations hostage, but they need to convince them by establishing government inclusive, one as soon as possible, rolling out policies that ensure people safety matching their words with their actions with regard to the amnesty provided to or promise to people who worked with the government. and then in the long term actually tried to get these people back. because again,
3:52 am
most of the people that were on these claims were educated people. people that the country that they themselves had invested years on themselves and now they're not here. so the thought of been really need to address that gap because governing is not an easy job. they are good at fighting. we have to see if they can govern successfully or not. so ton bought a car if we talk a little bit more about ice, okay, now and what their objectives were in the attack. clearly in the short term, it was meant to, to so chaos and bring up a sense of the lack of security instability. but what's there, what's the ultimate goal is, are they looking for some sort of power the way the same way that they were trying to build this, that they did the i saw in iraq and syria was trying to build this california. what is their ultimate aim pressure me just to come back to my colleague about being useful expression to that. i would actually, i will just over,
3:53 am
terribly nice. it is to me because i understand the pressure people are going under a tablet at the moment. but it is important to recognize that the rational thinking and she has been missing for some time. and this is why people find themselves in this house at the moment at the talks and how we're going on. then they go to interrupted. and then as the party button we're making progress towards the council . it's clear to everybody around the august 12th that the balance of our has just it was on the back and the. ready representatives of the pressed and we're talking to the tiny band about trying to transfer people an order to transfer our and that agreement was almost finalize. it was agreed by any. and you left the country on the day when delegation was getting to the, to the, to agree to the so i didn't know what that is morning. and in addition that he
3:54 am
energy of the situation that just happened going back to ice chain. it's not about their actual engine that i've done this time. as you know, these are people that were fleshed out, mostly from iraq and it ended up in offenders done. and they started activities after they were finished off in iraq. they have been tradition enemies of the balance and they're driving on attracting. ready the most extreme element and there is educated and within a certain city of the party by rights. and they are trying to present themselves as the ultimate, extreme interpretation of make a move for movement does not push them and they, they just how they, they roll over the last couple of years. so it's not very clear whether they have
3:55 am
any long term political objective, but to disturb the potential energy, their enemies of the valley by the names of the americans. and there were some, at the time, some rumors about them being associated by other regional power to other powers, some intelligence services and so on. but in general, i think they're going to be, they are known as bad news to the country. as michael said, small numbers, but they can be deadly. and the bombing that's happened which actually consume. deluxe more than 100 up yesterday is example of what they're capable of doing. and i agree that the sooner the band come up with any government. and in my opinion, the sooner they called back police interacts the best times are for calling clock.
3:56 am
i know you said earlier that you, you were not in favor of this decision to withdraw from afghanistan in the 1st place. but all there really any palatable options for the u. s. this at this point, because if they, if they decide to stay longer, wouldn't that be inviting further deadly attacks by, by ice. ok. i mean at, at this point, as of today in late august, no, there's no option for staying. we've already set this process in motion and the president's made a decision and he's going to stick to that decision. the question now becomes given decision he's made, how do we put together some kind of viable counterterrorism approach? he's used to term over the horizon. i've written in political about an offshore counterterrorism strategy with my colleague us for your mir. it's going to be difficult. we're going to be doing the same things we've been doing except from a distance. and, you know,
3:57 am
will be subject to the politics of the state where we ever, wherever we set up our c t friends. whether that's in pakistan, whether that's in a central asian country, and we're at the behest of somewhat mercurial leaders and governments. so no good options all around. and if you look at what the united states has gotten wrong so far, even just in the last couple of weeks, it doesn't inspire much confidence that we'll be able to, to glean accurate intelligence. if groups like i s k are growing and evolving. if groups like al qaeda or attempting to reconstitute an external operations attack network, we won't know about that because we have no eyes and ears on the ground anymore. good to speak with all 3 of you. we're going to have to leave it there all by de la by here calling clock. and so tom bought a. com. thanks so much for being on the side story. and thank you as a way to watching. remember, you can see this program again any time just go to our website as 0 dot com and for
