knowing that you were about to leave behind an incredible amount of weaponry. and an emotional televised address, president biden found to continue with the evacuation plans and to revenge those responsible for the atrocity we will not forgive. we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay. ah good morning and thanks for joining his hair on auntie international. again, this time is still reeling from the devastating bomb attack in the capital of the now taliban run country to explosions about the international airport. the current at the center of west and evacuation efforts more than $100.00 people have been
1:02 am
killed, including american military personnel sworn. you may find these images disturbing. one of the blasts occurred as an entrance to the airport, whereas cancel waiting in line to be processed to fly out the explosion tool through the crowd. bodies flowed into a sewage strain located near by. people have been massing at the site the days trying to flee. the tele balance returns and explosive vest was said to have been used in one of the attacks a car bomb in the other. another explosion shook an area around the hotel. british officials were processing afghans to fly to the 1300 people were injured in the 2 explosions. 13 years service members are among the dead. 20 a ton of our members, also kill. i guess the didn't cobble for us and told us how the tragic events unfolded in the city. what were several kilometers away from the airport and yet
1:03 am
still we can hear either stream of vehicles, the sirens blaring drive and pass to and from the direction of the airports, ambulances of rescued vehicles. they have been 77 blas according to the local press and other dentist we have distinctly heard for so for explosions in the last half. now we had 2 more to move. one of them was much more powerful than the rest. we have since learned that at least one of the designations was a controlled blast carried out by the american military. us troops here, the activity that we're hearing air activity, but by the way across it hasn't led up any still intense, you know, a few minutes at this point don't pass without the rule of jet engines overhead just to bring everyone up to speed that were to bloss one of the northern checkpoint northern entrance to the airport and one of the eastern end at the
1:04 am
barren hotel which had previously been used by us and british servicemen as well as diplomats to the afghans and to approve evacuations. it hasn't been used as such in that capacity for several days, but the press of people is ease. you know, it's hard to believe until you see it with your own eyes. there are no, there is no drone footage due to security reasons. and you can't capture the massive people the, the press of the mob with just the simple video, you know, short, short from up top, a 2nd floor or something. it is impossible to provide security at the airport as the situation stands. it is believe that but of the suicide bombers was, was she and as he approached the airport, he was detected by the people in the crowd and the upon detection. he hurried over to the american personnel at the checkpoint. and it's such a tight pack of people,
1:05 am
any explosive device you, you said also have devastating consequences. what is that? i believe at this point 60 people killed more than 150 injured value that keeps rising. and rising, they determined that seems now to prevent more attacks, but as the situation started, the taliban said themselves, it is impossible to provide the guarantee security here was that all those people of that would. busy be the problem is that a huge number of people have gathered near the water and there is a threat that the single person, one person alone can carry out an attack and killed people in order to damage the taliban reputation. this is not significant, not a big threat. we're monitoring the situation at the airport. they blame the united states for these, these, these crowd, this press, this mob outside the airport, which stretches for kilometers which circles the entirety of the apple take that the united states encouraged them to come and said it would evacuation,
1:06 am
bring them the greener pastures that the to europe, to america. and the taliban says that until the united states thieves, it will not be able to provide the security needed to prevent these types of attacks. now, whether you believe that or not, well, it depends on who you are. many people here at the airport, they believe that they can't say that the taliban will prosecute them as a threat to their lives, the safety of their families. other people in that more than that pressure there for the opportunity trying to get out of of got this done. nevertheless, the situation remains incredibly ted's boof. the taliban and nato countries have warned that there is a persisted that's the threat is high and it is ongoing. the united states has his promise that they will find those responsible and that they will take action since the isis isis. k is isis of shoot guns, pardon claimed responsibility for these attack. islamic states court assigned to
1:07 am
regional affiliate devices has claimed responsibility for the attack ahead of the blast, the u. k. u. s. and other western nations been warning the national is about the threat of a severe terrorist attack and advised them to avoid the airport. we spoke with our son and he was in cobb lab port when the 1st explosion occurred today into the airport of cobbled i was in the standing and if it was near to the gets here and they used to. so it's very close to us like 5 minutes away. i just thought there was like 4 to 5 minutes they had and they had told when they was looking look dash c p will renew, desertion, parliament, a difference of them? the type of type of good they're waiting. we're looking, we're suspicious. they didn't have guns. what they was looking for the airport, they was looking to be used to 100 the mentors when they get back to them to my
1:08 am
line. when they get back to the line, i was with the people like after one or 2 minutes, an explosion happened. he began, it was near, it was near that it did lead 1st in a way. and if it didn't happen, then i'd go and 1st of the year, it's gone for the dictum, the $78.00 me going to i was in the can it when they get to the line, the user to say it? i think those guys that there was behind the use of looking guns. i mean your camera after the use through they call the people that stay away, stay away with the people that didn't move. they told me they are joking because they did these things. money pants, they was always getting jessica and then the us started tubing, gas, gas and smoke. when the people the day you know, the, to like 6 to 7 guess people, the people who really need to gets dangerous. i saw there was like 5 or 6 woman day,
1:09 am
you're the 1st was born in. you're sitting there was going on the grounds. the ice, a splinter group behind thursday's bombings, has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan and lost a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. the the we did hear about this group for example, and i believe april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to
1:10 am
drop the mother of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the non ga har province on isis k. but the roots of this group in its existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context as group actually is a direct by product of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donnie taliban, who were disgruntled tally bon members who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camped camp chapman, u. s. military base where they used a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several other attacks on american assets, and this all led to a rise of terrorism inside pocket on directly related to the u. s. presence in afghanistan, 6 years ago, the pakistani taliban,
1:11 am
which was widely suspected of being used by the african government, backed by the u. s. against pakistan turned into isis k central. it's the same thing as isis. so most viewers with no slumming state of iraq and syria, right. isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015, big swats of iraq. and. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind the civically in iraq. that's where they really got their weapons from. they went into iraq, took those home these weapons and went back into syria, isis k, which is the islamic state of correspond, which essentially means eastern. they don't like the taliban, they're not friends with the taliban. they've been fighting the taliban. but more importantly, they've been fighting the west and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing enough dennis and left behind. unbelievable amounts of us military equipment, massive amounts of weaponry and guns black hawk helicopters from these. we left it all there the same way that we did in iraq. so we could be creating
1:12 am
a very similar problem. what we saw 20142015 with the other isis as isis case. far from being the only faction able to carry out such attack stance. the warning coming from the african national resistance front, which controls the panacea valley. and every now seen as the center of the anti taliban opposition is foreign relations had believed that the terror threats in the country right now is even stronger than it was 20 years ago. it could be, i says, cables we think there are, there are other elements plan. the attacks might have perpetrated such attacks against us soldiers and was a terrorist attack on the watch of the taliban group that says we are able to provide security. and now in one day we see numerous terrorists attacks happening under your watch. unfortunately, international terrorism and san is much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of afghan is on,
1:13 am
has been saying for the past year. we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat to national terrorism and in the, to the international community abandon scanned them, and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists. the civil happened in the international community, abandoned of canada into 2021. there's no pose threat towards everyone. no one is exempt and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or an eastern or the rush to leaf. and the ensuing panic was all to meet that august. 31st withdrawal deadline, which was jo biden's call. however, he's now presiding over the deadliest day for the us military and the guy standing more than a decade in the televised address. and at times, emotional president vowed revenge. the said that the efforts to get people out of the country would continue. here's what you need to know. the isis tears
1:14 am
will not win. we will rescue the american city. we will get our afghan allies and our mission will go on. the evacuation will continue and that the united states will get out any and all american citizens and african nationals were permanent, us residency, what's known as green card, who want to leave. he said some people may not want to leave. but those who want to leave the u. s. will make every effort to get them out. he said it is an airline airlift mission, unlike any other in history and was expected to be dangerous and stressful that was planned for also attacks. there had been warnings about attacks. he called those u. s. service members. now, i believe the numbers don't up to 13 who are killed, quote unquote heroes saying they are the backbone of america who are engaged in a dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others. and that the mission will and must continue. now, more than ever,
1:15 am
and he had this message for those responsible was to those who carried out just 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 general kenneth mackenzie, the head of central command are cent. com said isis carried out the attack specifically isis k or isis correson. and will likely continue to try and launch more attacks, adding that others have already been forwarded by security forces and campbell, the general went on to say the attack and hold to suicide bombers detonating explosives outside the abbe date of the airport and nearby hotel the hotel followed by isis gunman, opening fire on civilians, men, women, and children, along with us troops and military personnel. there are warnings about to attack and it's certainly raises more serious questions about americans evacuation efforts.
1:16 am
why it has become so incredibly catastrophic and also pass comments for president, bite himself about america's effort in afghanistan and the war on terror mission to degrade the chairs tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo some have been lied and was a success. i believed that our presence in that gas dance should be focused on the reason we went, the 1st place to ensure afghan a stand would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland again. we did that. we accomplish that objective, president fighting thing really backtrack, even raising questions about whether the u. s. again, should have been in afghanistan in the 1st place to begin with, and certainly as long as the u. s. was there nearly 20 years as far as the ongoing effort? general mackenzie said isis remains a quote, extremely real threat and will try to carry out further attacks, something present a bite. and also was saying this was a mission designed for stress. and that was expected to come under attack, and certainly that happened, as we know,
1:17 am
he said at this point it does not appear the taliban played a part in the attack and that it's within the taliban interest for america to leave the country as well. he added that again while america will press ahead with withdrawing and evacuating any and all us citizens and ask in nationals by august 31st. the august 31st deadline. he could not guarantee total security wasn't here. it sounds ridiculous, but the vast majority of people and communities like that want to come to america, given a choice. so getting every single person out is can't be guaranteed anybody because the termination or who wants to get out as well . and there has been intel sharing, and this was confirmed by general mckenzie between us armed forces and also the taliban. that so emphasized the messiness of america is nearly 20 or involvement in afghanistan. now coming to heretic, violent and crashing. and it's not surprising to me when, when
1:18 am
a life and how can the prisoners re weighed after the take over the air force base. and it was pretty clear that now we have thousands of people who could do harm beyond the towel on and on. it's not a tightly military unit, so it's not surprising. it's just for me, particularly for the men and women in uniform and the veterans that i've been working with that get people out of afghanistan over the past week. we got reaction to biden's speech from legal analyst, jennifer de master and conservative commentator and martin, who were both, far from impressed with the president's words, the global community as lots trust and faith in joe biden and his administration, a large truck now in the united states. of america, despite the victory again straight if united states military wise has managed to completely unravel and wine back in a matter of months,
1:19 am
putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know biting to get up there and say all he wants to cameras will hunt you down and we'll get you. but he has lots of credibility, not only this rate and the fear our enemy, but he's a lot but credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that in 9 months, have been in ministration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the biden administration. we're watching the bible presidency deteriorate before our eyes. this president is not handling this well and everyone knows in america and the people in the rest of the world now it's so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the president is careful and slow and methodical. but right now what we're portraying is weakness. and uncertainty, he says at the end of his speech, and now i'm allowed to ask the person, and course i was instructed. and right now, china is looking to taiwan and,
1:20 am
and bad guys are looking at america and saying, let's take advantage of this really weak, really embarrassing moment in american life. it's a big concern in the wake of the blast multiple european leaders and now readjusting that evacuation plans. the august 31st deadline is just a few days away now after which, you know, western forces are to remain in carbo with more on the reaction from the new britain and further afield. we heard from our correspondence east ali and peter oliver. well, not just in year from the u. n as well. i'm 20. 0 good. seattle has just recently has said that he will be convening a meeting of the un security council on monday. specifically to talk about the ongoing situation in afghanistan here in year. if we've heard from sha michelle, the council president who condemned the attack and said that he hoped this was going to see a resurgence in terrorism. m and a thing from of gun a stun,
1:21 am
nato secretary general. you insult him, but also adding his voice to the condemnation of this to talk. he said this evacuations would continue, that that remained the priority, getting people out through cobble apple, where they possibly could when it comes to germany, they had to now through and kind of cut them out of the german defense minister that the german evacuation mission had been completed, that's the evacuation of all german soldiers diplomats and the remaining german police officers that were on the ground in afghanistan. they have been sent one transport plane back to cobble apple. this is a special called go transport plane for, for taking people who require immediate medical assistance, taking people from the ground, their who are being caught up in this horrific terrorist attack and flying them off to what we understand to german bases in beckett's don, where they can receive medical treatment. we've also heard from high co mass,
1:22 am
the german foreign minister, who confirmed that there were no german personnel, no german citizens involved in the, the terrorist attack, you know, no, no germans were among be killed or wounded on the grounds. and when it comes to the evacuation process, they said it had being completed, angular medical, the german chancellor, describing this attack as despicable said be the window of being able to get people out of the country. well closed pretty much. and i'm going to come cut about the defense minister blaming that window, closing on the taliban. taken into consideration, this evening's events. we see that the risk, hello. so this is a high pressure situation in which to create people from the country and operate an al lift. we know that the time window is narrowing the unearthly, the, the attack that we saw today, and of which had been warned in recent days. and also this morning, had made it clear that the prohibition of the operations in bo, if not possible,
1:23 am
the security situation on the ground. and the telephone's refusal to allow an extension pass the 31st of august, have made this impossible thought. well, here in rome, the defense ministry confirm no italians had been caught up amongst the killed other wounded from the terrorist attack on friday. what we have seen though is a number of those countries announcing the end of that to ation programs. norway said it was impossible for them to take anymore. people out, they've been joined by belgium, poland, and canada. all saying there was no more left would be involving their personnel from the ground from we heard from a manual cross, the french president speaking in dublin, meeting there with the irish leadership positions. we have known these risks since the start given a confusion that reigns and can bowl from the tensions at the airport. the next few hours will continue to be extremely risky in both couple and the safety reasons pass that will not remain enough kind of them. he will remain on bus 1000000 that
1:24 am
we will continue to have an impact on the team and an embassy for afghan, as we are not recognizing of regime, but the country sees the french ambassador to afghanistan would continue his work from paris. that's the, the way people have reacted to the immediate news of this terrorist is lacking cobble from, from around the european union, from rome to london isa over to you, any reaction from downing street because it wasn't so long ago that london was saying he would like to actually see the deadline extended. absolutely. we've been, in fact, over the last few days, warnings coming from u. k. officials that there would potentially be some type of attack, specifically targeting the evacuation as warning go their own systems, of course about the potential threat of this attack. and it's now played out virus johnson, the prime minister. however, saying that the u. k. will be abandoning day will they see is that responsibility
1:25 am
to continue to get people out of the country and say those efforts will still continue. we're going to continue without operation and we're now coming to towards the, the end of it to the very end of it. in any event, what this attack shows is the importance of continuing that work in his thoughts as efficient manner as possible in the hours to remain to us. and that's what we're going to do. the case manager of the fans have been saying today that they are working closely with the best sources in their own assets that in trouble to try to establish exactly what happened as we've been hearing this evening. it appears that the attack is being attributed to the so called state in cars, sun groove, who, of course, in the past, attacked the town of johnson. interestingly, himself, he wouldn't be drawn on exactly who was responsible,
1:26 am
but took the time to explain and point out as well. and how about members as well have been killed in this attack? likely, far as something that realizing that of course, can talk about how been assisting those evacuation attempts, but also not wanting to call on them. because of course, those lines of communication, those lines of negotiation are going to be key in the coming day. not just again for that continuing education effort, but of course going forward about the type of government we might see what role the cannibal, what influence the u. k. would like to keep going forward. so, bar johnson, as it was still continuing to decidedly have that evacuation attempt continue . but also, of course not costing any blame as the main issue to say that's still establishing before facts. political analysts shall be around. fi believes that the west's intervention in afghanistan is what gave rise to isis in the 1st place. and even
1:27 am
spread by, by the western element when west and central asia under the guise of warren tara had said to make defeat, it was fun. i says, is a creation of mister marker on, you know, i wouldn't need shipping u k, the political elite and washington. but the reality is they want to give the was and impression that they've, the celtic situation in cardboard. that's valuable, not, not in control. therefore, potentially have also tried to give a warning sign to russia, china, iran, and bach is son. that one is on may slip into a civil war. again, not bringing right up to date you watching are 3, thanks for your company. i'll return with updates in half now. the
1:28 am
americans love buying homes. ah, this was a funny middle part of how our political leadership and our country large understood the bargain. you get a whole and then you will rebel, right as the things you don't revolt if you have a stake in the system. be really interesting to dial back and think about the longer, deeper history of what housings meant in the united states. not just that old question of the american dream, but the bigger question of who the dream has been for driven by a dreamer shaped by those in
1:29 am
me dares thing. we dare to ask me. catherine drugs are essential for millions of patients or are they? they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term. they really work. the problem is in a long term, they're mostly disastrous. suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition. it was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up
1:30 am
to something wonderful. very often they're harmful effects up to something terrible . can pills so of all ills. or are we trying to mitigate life itself? i just think i was like i was just scared, scared, little girl, the 24. and like me didn't have to be so complicated with me. i thought with this guy, he's drunk, you know, come out here and back underneath. right. just.
