when i would show the same wrong when i just don't the rules. yes. to fill out this thing because after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves worlds apart and we choose to look for common ground in the you want, you know, we can hear him national in the headlines this sunday, the taliban, the surrounds, called black hole with extra forces of foreign countries, race against time to evacuate that troops and citizens to meet the end of the month deadlines. the extra security comes off to the apple was rocked by a suicide bomb attack on thursday, which claims at least $117.00 lives,

including 13 us marines. hundreds of people were also left to injured and following 20 years of war, trillions of dollars spent and ami veterans voice. that angered how the situation in the country has on ruffled so far. just even invading up dana fan was already a failure. historically, no one has ever able to conquer up data. we're just gonna continue to make the same big mistake and we're just being used for the will of the m i. c. that's the news color unwelcome to the weekly. all look back up the top stories of the last 7 days as always. good to have your company of us has warned. it's highly likely there'll be another explosion in the african capital within the coming hours. a turtle law thing called earlier this week claimed the lives of at least 170 people. just to
2:02 am
warn you, the following footage contained some pretty graphic images. the the belinda i was looking to do much of the suicide forming happened an entrance to the airport where i stand for waiting in line to be processed to fly out the blast tool through the crowd and bodies was thrown into a nearby sewer drain. people had been messing up the fight for days trying to flee the town of bonds for ton. i'll take more galaxy reports from the tragedy torn kept
2:03 am
anti terror. raids across the city are continuing. security measures have been beefed up as much as much as they can be. so the taliban is still conducting door to door searches and you tear rates across the city, trying to identify to detain that catch more isis. members from off a dozen to a dozen. i supporters were detained, arrested around couple 3 of them had their pictures published by the taliban. and the taliban is promising to put a stamped to stamp out to put an end to ices, presence here in capital around of gotten this done. but this is something they say they will only be able to do once the united states leaves. so the threat level is, is very high. both the taliban in the united states and its allies expect the expect the i just splinter. so i just came to strike again, especially given how much cottage their last attack caused perhaps publicity for them. this is exactly the taliban says what they want. they want to discredit the
2:04 am
tyler bad and they want to get people on their side. say, only we can provide you with security as we are the true gods people here. god. this time they say that the taliban is too weak. it is too westernized, that it has lost its edge. nevertheless, the united states as also enact that maximum security measures at the airport, around several check points in the area, has been clear that people tried to get to close warning shots, offline both by the taliban, by us troops that flash bag with a gas grenades used if, if the crowd gets out of control, but things that also desperate for ordinary people that, that includes people who work with us forces with nato forces, with the embassies diplomatic stuff. people who still haven't been able to get out, never might get out. they still haven't been vetted or approved for evacuation. they haven't been able to contact anyone. they haven't been able to secure
2:05 am
arrangements for their families. so certainly with just 3 days left for people to get out of up get this done and. and the crowds, the queue huge, there is a sense of desperation. we spoke to ali hasanti who was in call, but when the fast explosions occurred to dave in to the airport of cobbled i was standing on the if get i will need to get here and they used to was very close to us like 5 minutes away i just saw, there was like 45 minutes. they had and they had to run. they was looking look danish people, the new desertion parliament, the difference of them, the type of type of food they're willing to do. we're looking, we're suspicious. they didn't have what they was looking for the airport. they were looking to be used to a 100 meters when they get back to them to my line. when they get back to the
2:06 am
learners with the people that are wanting or community, an explosion happen when they became it was near, it was near that is like 1st been away. an accident happened, didn't go on 1st of the year. it's like going for them the 7th, a big guy was and it can it, when they get to the line, they used to say, i think the guys that there was behind the use of looking guns. i mean your camera after the use, they call the people that stay away with the people that didn't. they told me that they are joking because they did the money that they was always getting service. and in the us started tubing gas guessing smoke when the people the day you know, the, to like 6 to 7 people. the people who really need to get danger. they saw there was like, 1st form in danger. the office was born. there was lying on the grounds. the
2:07 am
tragedy left hundreds of people entered with many meeting hospital treatment, and number remain in critical condition. we spoke to one survivor who described what happened i had applied for the vision and the poor and invited us to come near the door was near the gate when the explosion occurred. i saw myself falling to the ground and when i stood up, i told the last one side of my abdomen, and then they brought me to hospital as one of the wounded me, i spent a great behind thought said the talk has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan and launched a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. with more details, his english tunnels, the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the double strike right outside cobble,
2:08 am
airport, killed, dozens, american politicians had been warning, an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day were 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 offshoot of the same notorious islamic state terror group. it's based in korea sun, hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable me the
2:09 am
the if you think this may have been isis, kay's 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. 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
2:10 am
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 province on ices k. but the roots of this group and its 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,
2:11 am
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 campus camp chapman, the 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, which was widely suspected of being used by the african government, backed by the u. s. against pakistan turned into isis k. as the clock counts down to the august 31st withdrawal deadline, if actuation efforts continue enough, danced on with countries racing to get the last of the nationals out. well, those who solved in the afghan army police on the western backed government also and desperately searching for an exit route as they now fear persecution from the
2:12 am
town of bonham. bo, course the groups promised a sweeping amnesty. a rock clean video agency talked to a man who subbed as a special forces officer under the previous government version as a mom. and i had always wanted to join the military and say, when i graduated from school, i did, i received training at the academy of special forces in cobble. our unit was deployed to areas where there was fierce fighting police officers would call us in as reinforcements when under heavy fire. and it looks like we don't have a future now that the government has fallen. i call on the nomic emerett to establish a stable all inclusive government. as soon as possible, we must all shake hands now and rebuild our country on our road. the biggest concern i have is my children invested. we studied, we got some education, but what will happen now if the situation continues like this, it will all be hopeless if the government employees don't go back to work the future, the country will be in peril. currently, the universities and schools are closed and we are concerned about our children's
2:13 am
future being. the 13 marines killed in 30 days to tackle the foster solve us puts not enough kind of stone and 18 months and one of the largest daily death tolls in a decade had seen only veterans voicing that. i'm good. how the current situation is played out. we heard from iraq war veteran on former marine sniper sergio question, an afghan install, a war veteran on former marine sergeant, gabrielle martinez. the real failure of this war and up can expand or whatever you want to call it. a conflict was explicitly pointed out in the dentist and papers where a lot of generals basically spoke about the fact that there was no mention. they had no mission, they didn't know what they were doing there. and they didn't know what they were going to do in the future anyway. so yes, of course i think, i think not even pulling out of just even invading up dana. stan was a radio taylor. historically no one has been ever able to conquer up janet stan.
2:14 am
people are upset. busy with people i talk to our angry it's completely botched. there is no. ready political will, and there is still americans trapped in afghanistan and still haven't been able to get to go. and as far as lessons learned from, i mean other previous words. i mean, if we haven't learned from vietnam, if we didn't learn from, you know, from iraq and early 2 thousands. i mean, we're just going to continue to make the same big mistakes because we're not the ones that are pocketing the mit. and we're just being used for the will of the mit and that's and that's what i say about that. i. c, k is not the only fraction cape of carrying out such attacks as the warning from the asked on national resistance front, which controls the punchline valley. an area now seen as the heartland of the town upon opposition. its foreign relations had believed the terror threat and the country right now was even higher than 20 years ago. a warning they're all graphic
2:15 am
images. i had it could be, i says k. but we think there are, there are other elements. 1 plan the attacks might 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 san is much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of afghan is on, has been same for the past year. we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat to national terrorism and afghans in doing the, to the international community, abandon the dentist. and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen in the international community, abandoned of canada into 2021. there's no pose threat towards everyone. no one is
2:16 am
exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern. many countries in the world still view the town upon as a terrorist organization this week or t hard from its spokespersons kilometer heat on a range of issues from drug trafficking to the threat posed by potential resistance forces in the country. the language, sorry, really sorry about what happened, a couple add port for our part. we've taken measures to avoid these unwanted events . of course the responsibility lies with the americans. they tell people to gather the field. they say we will take you out. there was hostile and buffalo, the americans opened fire people. many were trampled and crushed. many died by august the 31st. the americans must have played the evacuation of their employees, the mo, for the pans his head. it's not
2:17 am
a big problem. there were only 2 people too who would like to continue the war marilla, and afterward my suit. we've repeatedly appealed to magnitude to resolve the existing problems through negotiations. and there is no need for a military confrontation. we've not received an answer to our calls, and that's not a problem either. or i'm forced as a station nearby pension here to keep the situation under control more and believe the current situation is entirely dependent on the afghans and no one else. we're not going to become a threat to the states bordering us using the g o strategic factor. we have good relations with tajikistan is back as tom menace tom pakistan bron china. i can assure our neighbors that they should not fear any threats, harm or damage from our territory. the belly online has for drugs. we have
2:18 am
a far reaching plan to revenge drug production. currently, about 3000000 afghans rejected and drugs. this is this side phenomenon for us. we'll try to nullify the cultivation and production of drugs in 2001 the cultivation and production of opiates would not eradicated work in this direction as well. in some provinces, the sewing and collection of drugs is still ongoing. and here we need cooperation not only with the countries of the region, but also with other interested state and had to painful reminders of the past wiki leak. trolls that whistle blowing archives on afghanistan to re exposed a multitude of problems over the years would be us lead mission will have all the details on not of the show. great i so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy. even
2:19 am
plantation let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk when i would chose the wrong. why don't just don't the world yes to see out the thing because the after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves, well, the part we choose to look for common ground in the me the me
2:20 am
ah, welcome back. now as the crisis in afghanistan unfolds wiki leaks is touring attention to past revelations about america's longest war and a series of twitter post the organization, republish, classified us documents, which at 1st sneak to the public a decade ago. now back then, we can make found that you didn't sound warm, but the u. s. intervention would be an endless war. beneficial to only a few total quarter, picks up the story. the swift fall of the afghan capital cast a dark shadow over every sacrifice made in the fight against the taliban. but there is a man who tried to stop things from going down this road. his name is julian, a son. she is the co founder of wiki leaks, and behind one of the biggest revelations in u. s. military history. in 2010,
2:21 am
the whistleblower group released the afghan papers for the 91000 leak reports that shed light on the grim affairs. the u. s. was for understandable reasons hesitant to share with the public the unvarnished ground level picture of the word of gaston that is in men, respects more green than the official betrayal. again, of the biggest leaks in u. s. military history. a devastating portraits of the failing war in afghanistan when these reports came into the public eye, washington's reaction was not to say, sorry, or even to try to deflect a guilt. instead, it shifted the blame onto a songs, calling him a criminal for apparently putting american lives in danger. what he likes,
2:22 am
walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. it is an attack on the international community liaisons engaged in terrorism. he should be treated as an enemy combatant. so a psalms put american lives in danger. when he showed the world how us soldiers actually killed innocent people, how publications documented their involvement in a case by case level in the death of more than 20000 people in afghanistan and more than 108000 people in iraq. and so when you want to distract from this, you just make the same accusation to the, to the person that is making accusation against you. wiki leaks determined that the 2006 operation medusa resulted in one of the highest civilian death tolls of the war. despite the shocking circumstances surrounding the event and was poorly investigated, an american soldier was killed. they called in an ac 130 gunship. this is a c 130 cargo,
2:23 am
refitted with canons on the side. it circled overhead and rained down shells the warlock say $181.00 enemy were killed. the logs also say there were no wounded or captured. it was a significant massacre. the afghan papers go on to suggest that the cover ups began with those actually carrying out the slaughter us soldiers reporting on their own actions appear to lump civilian deaths with the number of insurgency had killed. wiki leaks, revelations also shed light on special task force. 373, and a lead unit task with hunting down taliban leaders. many times though, they were involved in the killing of civilian men, women, and children, and washington later trying to water down the situation with misleading information about what happened. one example of this was when the task force fired rockets at a compound quoting nefarious activity there. but it was apparently not the case. it does appear to be evidence of all crimes in this example is the task was free. 73
2:24 am
high miles missile strike on a house which killed 7 children. nato later recognized the children's deaths they had caused, but said that initially they had no idea they were there. the colossal price american taxpayers paid needless suffering caused the fall of a corrupt, failed state. why did all this continue for so long? one answer is gigantic profits for giants. of the military. industrial complex with stock returns from 2001 to 2021. for government contracted companies like lockheed martin and northrop grumman, totaling more than 1000 percent. it's one of many seemingly inevitable consequences of what a sons claimed is money making scheme of endless war to wash the money out of its way out of the base of europe.
2:25 am
back into the hands of a truck that is going to go into having people no wonder the west may want to bury the truth and condemn julian a song whose fate is still hanging in the air as he faces 175 years in prison. if extradited from a u. k, jail cell to the united states, the scale of america's problems in afghanistan has been revealed in 20 declassified documents published by the us national security archive. now, one shows how issues work consistently and deliberately hidden from the public back in 2002, the defense secretary donald rumsfeld, was worried to the mission, was drifting. but he never mentioned it publicly. rather arguing that there was no point to negotiating with the remnants of the town upon more than a decade later, an american diplomat had the same concerns. the 1st question of did we know what we
2:26 am
were doing? i think the answer is no. if there was ever a notion of mission creep up against on, we went from saying that we will get rid of ok so they can threaten us to say we're going to end the taliban. then we said that we will get all the truth the tell about work with then further to have in our exit strategy b. s. table government. and again, it's done. we have to say good enough is good enough. that's why we're there 15 years later. now what's next editor in chief says the recent events in afghanistan vindicate the groups leaks all those years ago to supported by all the revelations that came out of the documents of bi weekly 11 years ago. some of them, of course, moved from earlier period ca, documents, diplomatic cables, military documents, it all pain the, the, the truth, the true picture of what was going on. and i'm kind of some 11 years ago. and it
2:27 am
was somehow didn't register the, the ly continues, and that is the, the most of pricing thing about the current events basically is. and the thing clearly may seem media cause come to reckon with is how was it possible for 20 years to maintain the law? what was going on inside them? julianna's, and also said that the africa was being used to launder american and european money . what did he mean by that? the trillion dollar plus the trillion dollars probably under estimate did go into us the pocket, the military industrial complex, the, the private contractors like dunkirk who were supposed to be training the outcome, police, etc. it was a massive flow of money that went into the wrong pocket. it can only be called corruption on a large scale. on top of that, of course there's a, the,
2:28 am
the corruption inside the sun where basically money was used as carols on to, to pump on the fire, or they will know loved good on the fire, just to gasoline being pumped on the fire that does not create a lasting bonfire. everybody knows that so far look at the biggest headlines of the last week. remember you can get more in them and all the developing stories, of course on, on you to conduct a quick way of great. gave me the ah, the ah
2:29 am
hello, driven by a dreamer shaped by those in me dares think we dare to ask me o
2:30 am
me. the me a well controlled with great power politics is not different from the jostling place in a high school hierarchy. the guys playing games of cheek him against one another. well, trying to marshall others that cause why the pacific journey you have a combustible mixed up national interest sized by the ever present political rivalry. no wonder the reading that the next big war will break out in asia is not a credible threat, but it is not that i'm now joined by for a while just for me or foreign secretary. you actually see it's a great pleasure, great honor for me to talk to you. thank you very much for finding the time. my
2:31 am
pleasure. thank you very much bye.
