8:03 am
100 people are waiting outside of the gate and hope to get chance to go inside of the airport. ah, this audio was on my way for only 3 years for foreign troops. all my documents are approved for the day. i'm coming here to be told my documents are invalid, only us post will get you here. america is the problem. they create these challenges, the cheating we afghan people playing a game with the afghan people probably came back my life, most of the shops are open. we can more traffic more via it goes in the street. but though i'm going to ask that question summer for people who opened the shops, the simply shop was been over for 2 or 3 days. the good thing about the talbot
8:04 am
running things here is that there are no explosions or fighting. bad thing is there are no jobs or work at all. all departments have failed and people are tense. the also the congress, if you can telephone, got some cuts out by the taliban. it has been several days that the government departments are shut down. are fluid. people are coming every day behind each department of the government, but they don't get permission from telephone to get inside of the government department. when it comes to running the country, there is presently a power vacuum. when our leaders came to couple, we have leaders. we have a president and minister. our cabinets has been appointed. when only this take up their positions, they will tell everyone to return to work. she started car one day. lots of people are hiding in their homes, are afraid to venture out. what is your message to them? i tell people that today or tomorrow we may ask them to return to work. we have
8:05 am
announced the national amnesty for everyone. we are not cannibals here to eat people. they ask our brothers, we will not tolerate afghans being disturbed. we have even us to traffic please do not disturb our drivers and our legit had been to never, ever disturb. can people are they behaved very calmly with the people that show up with reports growing of reprisals by the taliban. anyone who worked for or had a connection to foreign forces may be in danger. many have managed to get out book, family and friends have been left behind. we spoke to one of the many interpreters who worked with the coalition forces during the 20 year campaign. he asked to keep his name and location secret. at the moment my, my family is not residing in our own private home. they're living in somebody else's home. they're fitting for. they live a day, they cannot sleep, they're going to suppress depression because of this whole thing and,
8:06 am
and how long them discontinue, hold on them behind. i'm scared for them. i'm scared former my, my parents, the entire country is under the siege of the taliban. now that they have the, those databases and those information are pretty much to have everything about us. i believe that americans are responsible for this negligence. and today's anybody who will be killed as a result of this. their blood will be on behalf of the american government or if i knew that someday the americans will hand over this country back to the same terrorist that we started fighting in 2001. i would not have joined the ranks . i would have not worked with the americans or british forces. we did not knew that some day to be there will be a betrayal from the americans and the metal forces of been contacted by many british citizens who are stuck enough to stop. one of the situation with the british citizen with his children stood in front of the base for more than 3 days
8:07 am
after being beaten by the taliban. a number of times and his children got tired, exhausted, and sick. finally, after the last time that he was beaten by the taliban, he left the d a port and now is heading back to the village and he called me and he was crying and saying that it's better to be killed by the taliban than being here . he related to the way in front of the airport in front of my kids and wife. meanwhile, the clock is ticking. and as the scale of complexity of getting thousands of people out of afghanistan becomes clear, the taliban was the us and the foreign powers of consequences. if a complete withdrawal of their troops is not carried out by that august 31st deadline. president biden though, said on sunday that they may have to stay pass then some. so the british prime minister boris johnson, is going to use tuesday to emergency g 7 summit to ask washington to keep its forces beyond the 31st and to allow evacuations. and those lives to continue the
8:08 am
same time. the use top diplomat is blaming the united states for setting obstacles in the blocks, attempts to evacuated citizens, joseph bar, l. stress. the security levels of the airport are making the task almost impossible . the problem is access to the airport, the americans are in control and security measures are very strong. we complained we ask them to show more flexibility. we are unable to get our employees through. they want to evacuate $60000.00 people between now and the end of this month. it's mathematically impossible. life to brussels now, then we can talk to independent journalist lucrative. i welcome back to our tea. we've got the united states, then prioritizing the evacuation of its own citizens, plus the select few others the you asking for greater flexibility. how likely is it to get that? i don't think they will get it. the americans are really under duress because song, the situation is getting worse,
8:09 am
the end of the month is the air. and if the taliban or all those are fighting, shooting again, shooting before the end of it before the new month is, has started, then it will become an even worse chaos. so i suppose the best way is that the americans own x to treat as many as they can with the help of the nato forces planes that can land that the dutch, the bell. she brings the french and, and trying to take as many as they can. but the problem is, and remains as your guest said, the employee, all the you of all the embassies are left to himself. it's just, sy gone all over again. who could trust western democracies office with that in mind? and luke with will be abrupt departure the united states from afghanistan have for the ramifications and knock on effects for international relations. thank they, there will be, i mean, if things turn full for us in the coming days,
8:10 am
there will be discussions in nato because of what mr. but alice says about the necessity of it. she'll political force for europe is total contradiction with what they have decided within nato. so is it may totally find the europe with the americans, or is it that needs to have its own force? it's not the moment to discuss it. mr. boyle now is the moment to, to, to close ranks out with the allies within nato and to try to get out of the country all the people that worked for the western democracies. yeah, because just looking at the reaction to this, when you, when usually the you is funny, frustrated about the united states is doing, it's usually couched in terms, but the anger here, this time, it's barely masked anger over the it's do you think the next time then presumably, when the united states comes knocking to some military support, it's going to get
8:11 am
a very wary response from allies like the you will be very careful if ever you americans do it again. because i'm afraid that both republicans and democrats will not put a finger in such operations again, in the future. that is the end of such operations. you know, they, they won't try like dated syria in libya in time and other places, you know, off the side gone after this decade later any nation in the world would think twice about the credibility of americans support the negative equity. but it's going to be a hard sell. ok, luke river in brussels. thanks for joining us again. thank you. and go over the destruction of afghanistan has reached the united states shores as well with rallies pouring onto the streets in protest against the taliban. seizing power off the u. s. coalitions rapid with the bi protests broke out. some both the east west coasts, from allies to washington,
8:12 am
d. c. with don't demonstrate as chanting free. i've got to stand and bite and you betrayed us. they also demanded that the white house helps struggling afghan population, has politicians across nato countries play none of the us, but bite and in particular for the loss of afghanistan, don't court and looks at the mounting anger. 20 years of occupation, more than 2 trillion dollars spent hundreds of thousands dead. it's half the price tag only to get a humiliating defeat and botched evacuation in return. naturally the president had some explaining to do to the american people, a majority of americans, and forgive me, i'm just the messenger no longer considered to be competent, focused or effective in the job. i haven't seen nipple only reason we're against this is a place from which ben lot attacked the united states. america. had this been in another middle eastern country where he could have beasley have moved from we will have never gone to gas. biden's proverbial house of cards already looks as if it's
8:13 am
coming crashing down the atlantic council called washington deer caught in headlights. the administration's job approval rating fell below that of disapproval for the 1st time ever. and the nations allies, well, they are not happy issues. catastrophe. dancer, people, for there were some barriers, incredibility, one for the developing of international relations, 99 sharp. this is evident. it is clear that this commitment by the international community has not been successful. this is the biggest debacle that nader has seen since its foundation and it is an e book of change that we are facing to see that commander in chief call into question the courage of men. i forthwith to claim that they ran shameful in those who have never fought for the colors they fly, should be careful about chris lighting. those who have the united states of america
8:14 am
bear the main responsibility for the current situation because of their decision. so leave of garrison in parts over with hasty, they have the main responsibility. to make matters worse, it looks like the man donald trump famously branded sleepy joe might have been snoozing while all this was going on. i have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world. i've spoken with our nato allies spoken with nato allies, the secretary state or national security via he's been in contact with his counterparts throughout the world. and our allies, as has the general r b, i keep calling them in general, but my secretary defense, the fact of the matter is i have not seen a matter of fact the exact opposite. i've got, this is about america leading the world and all our allies have agreed with that. the seemingly out to lunch attitude and utter fiasco that took place under the current administration has drawn criticism from not just biden's rivals, but from fellow party members as well. i'm disappointed that the button
8:15 am
administration clearly did not accurately assess the implications of a rapid us withdrawal. the images we saw coming out of august on show a tremendous humanitarian crisis. this is going to hurt us. no question about it. i think of janice town, his last, every terrorist around the world is cheering. they have watched the taliban defeat america. in effect, president buttons, poor judgment produced the worst possible outcome in afghanistan in only a matter of weeks. even criticism from the media was generally bipartisan secretary blink. and how did president invite and get this so wrong? how could officials have missed fish? how did it happen? how do we get here? does president abide not bear the blame for this disastrous exit from afghanistan? another 3 years of fighting and we're going to be lucky if we have a single ally left. america is back. that was biden's famous promise. but after a colossal failure in america's longest war, ever,
8:16 am
many are starting to wonder if he meant america's turning its back on everyone's trust. ok will continue to explain the ask on christ. it's a for you still to come though, here on our t international concerns growing over trans, identifying men being placed in female prisons and in some cases, abusing female inmates will have a special report on that after the break. ah, driven by adrian shaped by those vision in me dares
8:17 am
thing. we dare to ask what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy for and shouldn't let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. developments only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk to me. ah ah. okay, we're going to return now to a topic that we feel more and more investigation and perhaps it's getting elsewhere in the latest, in a series of reports, we're looking at the problem of transgender convicts,
8:18 am
abusing female inmates imprisons around the globe. a growing number of women say their lives have been turned into a living hell by mail, prisoners exploiting the system. i am one of the most notorious cases in canada. women found themselves in danger after a predatory man offended why, then to fight, as a woman was sent to their prison. the was in on him have inspecting the gym in the bathroom, making out with someone else and wanting to re son with me. free women needed the morning after bill. someone also had to take the bill, which she used under the assumption that it provides protection from age and habitat is be going to mean the laundry room one day, telling me how beautiful i was. and he was trying to get with me. he was super
8:19 am
weird. all the girls were uncomfortable, shalon and the house with him and everything. he tried to tell me he was in love with me. it was weird. he asked me to read for him and the girl and started making out with her and feeling her out. well, i was there. he breck, how many girls his last 3 years. and he also bragged about taking in girls virginity in the library to give details as well as the air when it's when there were a few of us in there, it was in the living room do you encounter? i couldn't eat after the races are inside women's jails rating. our women men are using this loophole to access already vulnerable. women who have no voice. so platform to speak from our government is setting out women to be sexually assaulted by these may read this
8:20 am
while we've requested comment from canada as correctional service about the allegations and we'll share it response as soon as we hear anything back. and we're going to leave you now without correspondence. southgate, taylor and another of her in depth reports on this. today she speaks to active is to have a mason who shed light on the story of the canadian convict, as a shed her own experience of abuse by trans genders imprison. oh, i want to get a sense of your time inside, and specifically how trans inmates affected your experience. i was incarcerated with trans individuals and prevention. that was the 1st time i came across it. and then again, when i went to the federal and that was when they actually put them on compound with us, instead of segregating them away from us. and they didn't have to have surgery. so
8:21 am
that happened in 2017. and what was your reaction when you love that was trans inmates living in the compound with you? i was actually really freak dough in provincial because they brought me over to the indirect supervision range. and there is a sex offender there that was fully intact. and he was there hiding out because of his crimes. that's what the guard told me anyway. but he was trying to peek into my style when they're searching me. so that was my very 1st experience of that. but when i got to the federal and i was told that there are men on compound with us, i was blown away. i didn't believe it. i couldn't believe that they were putting males in women's presence. i was actually harassed by one of them when i was inside, used to get me to try to walk back and forth in front of them so that they could check out my but lots of other comments as well. and then i was also in the halfway
8:22 am
has with a male who was fully intact and it was like walking on egg shells. are you worried that there are people who are going to use the system in order to end up in a female prison? and then come out and decide that he's a man again. well, yeah, there's nothing to prevent them. if they claim transgender identity, you can't say that they're not transgender because you're discriminating against their identity or their expression, and even the one, but do get denied training for their utilizing the grievance system, which is a complaint system or a correctional services of canada. when their complaint is not resolved, they're bringing it to the human rights tribunal. did you ever inform the gods about how uncomfortable you felt about incident you described of sexual assault? and it's so how did they react? so as women, we do not utilize the avenues that are for us. so the grievance system and the
8:23 am
human rights tribunal, we're just not, we're not taught about it. we don't understand how the system works. and for the most part, women are there, they're dealing with. so much trauma, like a lot of them are like constitution, drug addiction and have been abused their entire lives. they just accept it as another thing that's happened to them. it's reality of being female. so there are complaints and there are grievances, but not enough. women are speaking out because they're scared. did any of your fellow, female prisoners have similar experiences to you? yeah. some of my friends were like, pushed up against the wall in the laundry room and a hard time shut down their throats. they've had their breasts or their time sexual acquirements. a few of them have been sexually assaulted, so to speak to a lot of women that have been incarcerated. and the stories are very similar,
8:24 am
same with physical altercation. they've never been punched in the face so hard. they're starting to carry weapons around, which is not a normal thing for women that are incarcerated in canada. they're putting soup cans and socks because they know that they're fighting males and not women. and there's been really, really big power difference between them. candidate prison system allows men to choose to solve the sentence in a female prison. if they say they identify as women, they don't need to undergo any thought true or human therapy. that what is enough fuel far to say this is in the name of the quality and to ensure the safety of transgender is the little change was pushed for by prime minister justin trudeau. himself, will you do your best to ensure that trans women are put in prison or prison, more appropriate to their gender identity?
8:25 am
yes, i will ensure that i consider myself to be a fairly strong advocate for. for l g b t q 2 issues and fairly aware of all the different pressures and this wasn't one that i had ever thought of. so thank you. have a mason whom we just heard from, says the government has to rethink its approach to the whole issue. nobody wants to speak about it, they don't want to report on it. we're being told that we're lying, that it's not happening, not have good use that return. so back there's literally no discussion about it. there was no discussion before any of the policies that were implemented. and i feel like there are solution to this. they have the room in men's institutions that have wings and dorms, and they can make l g, b, t q, wing, better, tailor, to fit their unique needs over in the united states. similar concerns have been raised, for example, by the case of to no one wrote
8:26 am
a transgender woman in annoy who was transferred from a mens prison to a women's facility that was after she alleged mail and mate had sexually harassed her. but in her new prison, monro herself was accused of raping a female inmate at the thought of the california past its own controversial law. now it allows trans inmates to be transferred to facilities that align with that gender identity. the law was adopted in january by may, over 260 transfer requests had been made and not left. some female convicts, very worried. i will not be victim anymore. i have endured sexual abuse as young as 4 to 8 and with the rape as well as numerous main staff correctional officers being an appropriate ever since california. as as b one for 2 has passed, i have been living in constant fear. i can't mentally function without fear. if the
8:27 am
men come here, please help us. i'm scared just because they feel like a woman doesn't mean their penis doesn't work. we discuss california law with alex har on a co founder partners for ethical and founder of the agenda mapping project. she says the well being of women prisoners is simply of no interest to legislators. senate bill 132 is is, is like phantom thing. women who have committed whatever crime to the punishment of sexual violence at the hands of meals. and i think that in terms of the pyramids of nice, gavin use them and scott, winner and every other enabler who had the largest to happen, views, the feelings of, and the physical safety of incarcerated women at the bottom of that pyramid of needs. when we of course understand it has to be a top ortiz keeping
8:28 am
a close eye on similar developments in the us. and for the walt. and we'll have more features on the issues raised to come me, ah, ah, i use, i join me every 1st day on the alex simon show. and i'll
