6:01 am
didn't know they were such drugs. why were you being green in the removal of those knowing that you were about to leave behind an incredible amount of weaponry. in an emotional televised address, president biden found to continue with the evacuation plans and to track down those responsible for the trust we will not forgive. we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay. ah, good afternoon, great ivy with us. this is our teens. again, this down is still reeling from the devastating bomb attack in the capital of the taliban bun. country 2 explosions rocked the international airport. the current at
6:02 am
the center of western evacuation efforts more than a 100 people were killed, including american military personnel, must warn you may find these images coming up disturbing. one of the glass top and the entrance to the airport last guns were waiting in line to be processed. the fly out of explosion tools to the crowd. bodies was thrown into a city strain located nearby. people had been amassing at the site the day trying to flee the time of bonds return and invest was said to be used in one of the tanks of carbone in the other. one of the explosions shook canaria around a hotel with british officials with processing afghans to fly to the u. k. 1300 people were injured overall in the to explain that in u. s. service members are among the dead. 20 taliban members also killed the front against the in cobble and told us how the cities faring after the attacks. the situation so far this morning is somewhat comp of it. it was yesterday,
6:03 am
but we kept hearing as well as half a dozen explosion. and this is after the 2 parish, 4 block at the hotel of them are explained by the taliban to the local population. as i've control designation carried out by american servicemen destroying their assets, equipment that they don't want to leave behind and that they can't evacuate. nevertheless, things that hasn't been the sort of shooting we had overnighted the sirens that we heard yesterday. but from what we understand. and this has been confirmed to us by, by numerous sources that were such as and raids, carried out throughout the city over the course of tonight. and this this morning as well. those searches and grades are still ongoing. the terror threats at the airport is still high. you may have seen footage from the airport this morning. the crowds never went away. it's. it's very difficult to describe just how many people
6:04 am
there are at the airport now. how tightly packed together they are and how impossibilities to, to, to vet them, to sort of pat them all down. but for they get to the fence before they get to the various checkpoint, thousands of thousands of people packed together screaming, jocelyn, shoving, trying to get into the airport. that hasn't changed. and these are countries as well as the taliban warning that the crowd must disperse for their own safety. those who carried out these, these attacks, they saw the cottage that they caused, isis allegedly has claimed responsibility and the, the threat to ease. and the, the fear here is that they'll try again, which is why we're seeing the search is carried out. now these rates bud taliban sizes allegedly, coordinating with us forces. but as i said, the situation remains tense, not quite as bad as it was yesterday,
6:05 am
but nevertheless far from come nomics state cora son, which is a regional affiliate device. this is claimed responsibility for the atrocity added the blast, the u. k. u. s. and other western nations have been warning the nationals about the threat of a severe terror attack and advising them to avoid the airport. we spoke to allie hassan, who was near the port when the 1st explosion occurred today into the airport. i was standing on to get with you to get here and they used to, so it's very close to like 5 minutes away. i just saw, there was like 45 minutes. they had and they had to run. there was looking look danish people renewed the duration parliament, a difference of them. the type of the type of group they're willing to discuss. we're looking were suspicious. they didn't have guns. what they was looking for, the airport, they was looking to be used troops. they will, i will a 100 the mentors and they get back to the learners with the people like after 12
6:06 am
or 2 minutes. an explosion happened on the weekend. it was near. it was near to the lake 1st in a way, an ex happened, you're going to start the year after the youth group, they call the people that stay away, stay away with the people that didn't move. they told me that they are joking because they did the distinct many times. there was always didn't get there. and then the us started tubing, gas, gas and smoke when people fixed. guess in people, the people who really need to get the injured. i saw there was like 5 to 6 woman day. your dear friend was born. it was, you can get there was going on the grounds on the i splinter group behind those days. attacks has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan and the savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. with details on the groupies ortiz easiest on the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from
6:07 am
international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the. the double strike right outside cobble, airport, killed, dozens, american politicians had been warning. an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day we're on the ground is another day. we know that ice case seeking to target the airport attack both us and allied forces and innocent civilians. as we conduct these operations, we are sustaining the highest level of vigilance for an attack against the airport by isis k or another terrorist group. or commanders on the ground have taken every step they can to prepare for such an attack. isis k is an african off shoot of the same tourists islamic state terror group. it's based in car a sun, hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to
6:08 am
its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable the the if you think this may have been isis case law strike at the exiting foreign troops before a happy union with the taliban? well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical
6:09 am
enough. in the eyes of isis k, the islamic emery strongly condemns the bombing targeting civilians at cocoa airports. the explosion took place in an area where us forces are responsible for security. the bottom line is isis k presents a massive security and reputational challenge for the taliban. given the taliban attempts to look more civil, humane and legitimate, we could conceivably soon see. i mean, strange as it sounds, a taliban lead anti terrorist operation, or isis k, might become the perfect pretext for the us to negotiate at least some presence in talib, uncontrolled of garrison. we did hear about this group, for example, and i believe, april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to 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
6:10 am
existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context. this group actually is a direct byproduct of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donnie taliban, who were disgruntled taliban 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. busy 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, 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
6:11 am
thing as isis. so most viewers would know the flemish state of iraq and syria, isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015, big swats of iraq and syria. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind, specifically 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 correson, 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 us and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing and up dennis and left behind. unbelievable amounts of u. s. 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 a very similar problem of what we saw. 20142015 with the other isis isis case. far from being the only faction able to carry out such attacks. not the warning from
6:12 am
the african national resistance front, which controls the punchier valley. an area now seen as the center of anti taliban . a position as foreign relations had believe the terrorist threat in the country right now. he's even strong. the newest, 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. a group that says we are able to provide security. and now in one day we see numerous terrorist attacks happening on the watch. unfortunately, international terrorism and get us on as much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of us can, as has been saying for the past year, we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat to national terrorism. and in doing the,
6:13 am
to the international community abandoned denison. and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen if the international community abandons of canada into 2021. there's no hose threat towards everyone. no one is exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern. the rush to leave the ensuing panic was all to meet the august 31st withdrawal deadline, which was joe biden school. however, he's now presiding over the deadliest day for the us military in effect, afghanistan in more than a decade. and the televised address times emotional president vowed revenge said efforts to get people out of the country would continue your search. you need to know these isis tears will not win. we will rescue the americans. we will get our afghan allies and our mission will go on.
6:14 am
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 sent 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 us 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. 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
6:15 am
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 involved to suicide bombers detonating explosives outside the abbey 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. why it has become so incredibly catastrophic and also pass comments from president, bite himself about america's effort in afghanistan and the war on terror was in this mission to degrade the chairs tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo summer
6:16 am
been live 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, biting, seeing the 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 agreed with saying this was a mission designed for stress. and that was expected to come under attack and certainly that happened, as we know, he said at this point it does not appear. the taliban played a part in the attacks and that it's within the taliban interest for america to leave the country as well. he added that again while america will pressed ahead, with withdrawing and evacuating any and all us citizens and ask in nationals by
6:17 am
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 there's a termination or who wants to get out as well. and there has been in tell sharing, and this was confirmed by general mckenzie between us armed forces and also the taliban. then 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 i and our prisoners were relates after the the tech over bar aware for that. and it was pretty clear that now we have thousands of people who could do
6:18 am
harm beyond the towel on and on is not a 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 helped us get people out of afghanistan over the past week. we go reaction to biden's speech from legal unless jennifer, the master and conservative commentator and martin who both fall from impressed with the president's words. the global community has lost trust and faith in joe biden, and his administration, a large truck now in the united states of america. despite the victory of the games and united states, military providers have managed to completely unravel and, and wine back in a matter of months, putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know, biding can 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,
6:19 am
not only this rate and the fear our enemies, but he's a lot of credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that in 9 months of administration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the biting ration. 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 know it. so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the present 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 as i was instructed and right now, china is looking to taiwan and, 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. well, in the wake of the explosions,
6:20 am
multiple european leaders and now readjusting their evacuation plans, the august 31st deadlines is 4 days away. after which no western forces is set to remain in campbell, the oliver has more alum, how will bleed as a handling the evacuation. holly and plain that was evacuating people from the the airport. the cobbler came on the fire last night. we've already heard from mario doggie, the italian prime minister, saying that the upcoming g 20 summit, which will take place here in the italian capital will have gone to start as a big part of its focus elsewhere. what we've seen is the u. n. a refugee agency, specifically their representatives in germany and folks person in germany. i think they would continue their efforts on the ground after that. so if you 1st of august deadline the spoke 1st to the german un refugee agency saying the fire brigade doesn't leave when there's a fire. he did point out the sobering message that while thousands of people have been evacuated through cannibal airport,
6:21 am
far as the g un estimates those around 3400000 people trying to flee afghan, it's done in the country right now. but a number of nato allies, particularly the european countries, have wrapped up their operations when it comes to evacuating people directly themselves. we heard from germany, from com, cut about the german defense minister, who is the, the german base. and tosh tend to new beckett's done where people have been evacuated out and retreating troops have gone to is they've left cobbled before they end up back in germany. and she said that mission would really come to a close. we did hear from angular merkel though, the german chancellor saying that the time was really running out to get people out of afghanistan right now. we know that the window of opportunity is closing 10000 people could be brought to safety. i want to reaffirm that we will not forgive those who can no longer be rescued by error,
6:22 am
least. we will continue to try to get them out of the country, the foreign ministries, talking to the taliban about this. and we will also coordinate internationally on how we should proceed and the air leaves today and that's well, franz had said that they were ending their lift. however, in the last few moments, we understand that paris is looking at extending not 4 hours. perhaps even a few more days up towards the 31st of august deadline, we had heard from the french president to manually call. he said that there were 20 bosses of french nationals on our guns. that france had taken responsibility for and wanted to get out of the country waiting. i the asked or me a bite to cobble airport. the french president acknowledge that the time that getting those people out was going to be difficult and that there was a possibility that some wouldn't be able to be evacuated. so we have known these risks since the thought given the confusion,
6:23 am
that rains in control and the tensions at the airport, the next few hours will continue to be extremely risky in both couple and the safety reasons. sam, pass that will not remain enough gun. and then he will remain on bus 1000000 that we will continue to have an impact on the team and the embassy for afghan, as far as we are not recognizing a regime, a country. well, the u. k. minister of defense, ben wallace was doing the rounds on british media on friday morning and one interview i heard the said he only wished they had 7 more days in order to get people out of the country. they don't have that time. in fact, mister wallace went on to suggest that the british presence on the ground enough gun is done, could be wrapped up in a matter of hours. not so much a matter of days. we will process those people that we have brought with us the size and people approximately inside the field now. and we will seek away to continue to find a few people in the crime where we can. but overall, the main processing has now closed and we have
6:24 am
a matter of eyes. there are still people that are going to be in afghanistan that we couldn't get out. we've also had news coming out of ankara, the turkey having decided on a proposal that had been put to it by the taliban. this was a proposal to try and help keep cobble airport after keep couple airport open after the 31st of august, the deadline. what the taliban was still insisting on is that turkish troops called me, so we'd have to get out of the country, but they've asked for technical help from ankara in order to keep the airport open for a little bit longer president. on the 3rd, he said he still hadn't decided what his country's answer to that request would be . well, we'll be listening in to what comes out of the meeting between the italian prime minister foreign minister and the russian foreign minister said gala for all we're expecting that i've got a son will be off on their. busy agenda as well, and any news that comes out of that, of course, i'll bring it to you here on arctic to us house republicans demanding answers to
6:25 am
claims. afghanistan's ousted president fled the country with suitcases stuffed with a $160000000.00. the politician safe true that money could have been stolen from us taxpayers. the ex president has been denying me allegations saying he fled with nothing but the clothes he was wearing. caleb open reports. while 2 decades of occupation has wrought nothing but misery to most afghans, there is a layer that have collaborated with the united states who have done pretty well. but at mildly, the level of luxury enjoyed by certain afghans who made themselves useful to the united states is starting to raise some questions. to congressmen want an investigation of oscar. off ghani, the president who just fled. apparently he took $169000000.00 with him. he's now got asylum in the united arab emirates, a country known for its shall we say hospitality. it's too easy for officials to buy properties to buy anonymously. there is no information available to help
6:26 am
identify violations. more transparencies needed afghanistan, former vice president on the med, via masoud, allegedly flew to do by in 2009 with over $52000000.00 in cash. he was eventually released without having to explain where the money came from. many former afghan officials have luxurious real estate in the by the cost of an average apartment and do buy is over $670000.00. meanwhile, the gross domestic product per person, per year in afghanistan for 2020 was less than $600.00 afghan corruption has been going on for decades and did not start with america. but rather than trying to fix this, i watering graft, the united states for gasoline on the fire, our biggest single project, sadly. and inadvertently of course, may have been the development of mass corruption. once it gets the level i saw when i was out there is somewhere between unbelievably hard and outright impossible to
6:27 am
fix it. this is nothing new for us aligned regimes. the us back, saigon, government in south vietnam was notorious for corruption. and that probably contributed to the overall victory of the communist. nice that he was convinced that mister to you had succeeded in removing from the country a substantial portion of south vietnam's estimated total of $26.00 tons of gold preserves form aid. say to you, profiting by control of corrupt regime left vietnam, a billionaire outside gone and cobble have fallen, but the usa is still as its buddies around the world. take the cars on a family that rules iraqi kurdistan. the families spent $50000000.00 on beverly hills, mansion along the prime minister of iraqi kurdistan. a member of the cars on a family actually spent over $3000000.00 in a container casino in a single night. now keep in mind that since 2014, the united states has sent over $3000000000.00 in humanitarian aid. where is the
6:28 am
money going? looks like american taxpayers have been subsidizing the lives of luxury for white house cronies across the planet. while the infrastructure of the united states is decaying and falling apart, in some cases literally and the u. s. economy creeks, we now have a situation where the government is handing out cash all over the world to notoriously corrupt people. i think the investigation is regarding corruption and janice and the american involvement. then it should have started in 2002 when the americans invaded and occupied at the dentist ban because they brought in a way, corruption with them. if you look at the history over the last 20 years, very ordinary people have become enormously rich. the previous were drawers who
6:29 am
were just demand, or maybe, or a strong man. now, multi millionaire, all the foreign aid that goes from benighted states at only 2 percent of the yes to the target population, most of the other money leave that can need that through contracts by americans in foreigners or through simple theft corruption, a clip proceed. and i brought that up for this news. thanks so much. be company here. and don't forget those little stories covered on a website and you can check them out by heading to r t dot com. mm . with the

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 know, 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 ah, the whole earth catalogue was part of the movement in this publication was created by steward brand, a former biology student, and a jack of all trades.
