oh it someday. it taught him to national sense weekly, our rounds up of the big stories of the last 7 days. and switch any of the u. s. has wanted highly likely that will be a nother explosion in the african capital than the coming hours, a deadly blog, and called earlier this week warm and claimed the lives of at least $170.00 people . a warning, the following footage contained some graphic images. the the the so the belinda dixon. i do hope that was the suicide bombing happened on entrance to the airport.
6:03 am
last gowns were waiting in line to be processed to fly out the blast tool through the crowd and bodies were thrown into a nearby sewer train. people had been messing up the fight for days, trying to flee. the ton of bands were ton, ortiz moore. i'd counted in cobble and husband speak exclusively to the militants about the future. whole. the initial shock of the tyler buttons. takeover has now wor, no people are ours in the streets, they aren't as scared as they were. the shops are all open. nevertheless, it's still all in limbo. people are sure what will come next. people are sure but a bad swallow, but people are sure what the taliban, what this new tyler bad will do next with taliban of today claims. it's very different to the taliban. of the ninety's. when the majority dean were lost in capital they with savage. that's rasa geez. and executions abounded governor and i
6:04 am
think is all afraid. the 1st will say it would be like $9.00 to $9.00 to $6.00 when the taliban came to paula. but from what we can see, they aren't as aggressive anymore as you me to think it people were scared of being killed or being kidnapped by the taliban. i haven't seen anything like that with my own eyes. they say it's happening on t v and on youtube, what i haven't seen any such cases myself, no piece, largely re didn't capital. the taliban is trying to show that it has changed the atlantic emerick, their official name news that it has an image problem. and many others besides reputation preceded them, 10000 sled, lead capital fled the country. they didn't want to put the pallet by the promise of amnesty mercy and reform to the test. they can only be there. i have only content for those, leaving those with brains. the young, what's your tell will the country recovery develop if they all even which is why
6:05 am
they're making such a public relations effort. why out permit us, far, and media to film and talk to the fight as if, but that's what they did. let us into the checkpoint that feel trophies. so this is one of the taliban and how much, what we've all ceiling on videos. they have hundreds and hundreds of these thousands of other vehicles, billions of dollars worth of weapons with evaluation vehicles, tags, and even helicopters that were just left behind by the afghan military. as it retreated. they've running out of flags to put up across capital that city and their own, their own vehicles. they related to hoist up white cloth, symbolic of the taliban white flag. the speed of the taliban. the bogs has left them, visibly exhausted fighters get little sleep. there's too much to do and to few to do it for now, but that hasn't lessons for co l. as in savannah, for many years,
6:06 am
we fought for the independence of afghanistan from the americans. and we will continue to tirelessly fight against, invaded all the time. more people join us. the taliban has learned the ways of the world. the hard way, zeal, and fanaticism are good for fighters. but leaders need clear a heads. this is why they exercising more restraint by their keeping their hotheads on a leash, held by older and for experienced merge. i deem afghan citizens who worked with who cooperated, who translated for, for american forces, for european forces, but also for their embassies, also for their organizations that worked here. there is an absolute belief that this is sure to happen that you are going to kill any one that was against the talent, but now that you've come to power, is that true? my good it is. of course, we don't like them, but if they want to leave, they can leave. they can go to america, but they will never be loyal even there,
6:07 am
they are traitors. but they may be tula the decreed that we do not touch them the day on the amnesty. and so we do not touch them. anyone who stays, we are killing them, is lying after several days here in capital. it is apparent that the taliban has a massive shortage of manpower. the fighters are both overworked and stretched. nevertheless, this new taliban is evidently out to whim, to borrow a phrase, the hearts and minds of the afghan people rather than crush them. as the previous taliban would have done. whether they're being oddest though remains to be seen. i spoke to ali has sony, who is in kabul port. why not terrible suicide bomb happened to dave in to the airport of cobbled i was standing on the s get i will need to get in and they used to so as well as like 5 minutes away, i just saw there was like 45 minutes. they had and they had to,
6:08 am
when they was looking look danish people renewed iteration parliament. the difference of them did the type of the type of good. they're willing, we're looking, we're suspicious. they didn't have what they was looking for the airport. they would look into the us troops. i will 100 mentors when they get back to my line and they get back to the line that was with the people over there wanting, or community. an explosion happen when they began. it was near it was near to the lake 1st in a way and it didn't happen. then i'd gone 1st of the year. the gun for dictum, the 78 me going to i was in the it can it when they get to the line the user to i think the those guys that there was behind the youth looking guns. i mean your camera after the used through, they call the people that stay away, stay away. but the people didn't move. they told me they are joking because they did the distinct money pants. they was always in jeff davis and in the us started
6:09 am
tubing gas guessing 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, 1st big form in danger. dear 1st was born in, do you think it was laying on the grounds? the tragedy left hundreds of people injured with many heating hospital treatment number remain still in critical condition. we spoke to one survivor who shared his experience i had applied for the vision and the poor that's invited us to come near the. i was near the gate when the explosion occurred. i saw myself falling to the ground and when i stood up, i felt as dodd last one side of my abdomen. and then they brought me to hospital is one of the wounded be on a splinter group behind thursday's attack has been active and nice enough canister
6:10 am
on pakistan and launched a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. with more details, his equal sontols, 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 couple, 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 i c. k is 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
6:11 am
same the tourists islamic state terror group. it's based in correson. 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 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?
6:12 am
well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical enough. in the eyes of isis k, the islamic emerett 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 taliban controlled galveston. we did hear about this group for example, and i believe april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to
6:13 am
drop the mother of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the none go har, 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 tallow bonds, who were disgruntled talia 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, a 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,
6:14 am
backed by the u. s. against pakistan turned into isis k as to clock counts down to the august 31st withdrawal deadline. monterey chef of continue with countries racing to get the last of the nationals out. those he saw the afghan army police on the west and back government also desperately searching for any exit route as they now fear persecution from the taliban. despite the group promising a sweeping, i'm going to see a rocking video agency talked him out. he saw a special forces officer under the previous government and as a mom and i had always wanted to join the military and say when i graduated from school, i did and i received training at the academy of special forces and cobble unit was deployed to areas where i 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 islamic emerett to establish a stable all inclusive government. as soon as possible,
6:15 am
we must all shake hands now and rebuild our country on our own show. the biggest concern i have is my children. we studied, we got an 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, but country will be in peril. currently, the universities and schools are closed and we are concerned about our children's future. 13 marines killed in states attack while the foss deaths of us personnel, enough kind of fell on in 18 months and one of the largest and daily dec tolls in a decade. it's the unami veterans voicing that anger held the current situation of played out. we heard from 2 ex servicemen. 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
6:16 am
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 ever able to conquer up, down. people are offset. 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 to thousands. i mean, we're just gonna 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 m i c and that's and that's what i say about that. i. k is not the only function capable of carrying out, talk to tax. that's the way for me. i've got national resistance front which
6:17 am
controls the punches valley and area now seen as the heartland of the empty bottle position. its foreign relations had believes the terror threat in the country right now was even higher than 20 years ago. i wanting, they're all graphic images ad. it could be, i says k, but we think there are, there are other elements 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 son is 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 again, in doing the,
6:18 am
to the international community abandon f denison. and we saw how get us on became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen if the international community abandoned that into 2021. there's no hose threats towards everyone. no one is exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern. still ahead, painful reminders of the past, which makes rules at all times on account of san 3. expose a multitude of problems over the years with the us. that mission will the details office will break. i so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy going from station let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only
6:19 am
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 show the wrong when i was just don't the room yesterday out the thing because after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves will depart. we choose to look for common ground in the news. hello again,
6:20 am
as the crisis enough kind of thought unfold. wikileaks is drawing attention to parts revelations about america's longest war in a series of twitter, post the organization, republish, classified us documents, which is fastening to the public a decade ago. back then, which really found that you didn't found warner that the u. s. intervention would be an endless war. beneficial to only a few don water 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, the whistleblower group released the afghan papers for the 90. 1000 leaked reports that shed light on the grim affairs. the u. s. was for understandable reasons
6:21 am
hesitant to share with the public the unvarnished ground level picture of the word of god has done that is in many respects more grief than the official betrayal to one of the biggest leeks 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 on 2 songs, calling him a criminal for apparently putting american lives in danger. what he likes, walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. it is an attack on the international community
6:22 am
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, case by case level in the death of more than 20000 people in afghanistan, and more than a 108000 people in iraq. and so when you want to distract from this, you just make the same 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, it was poorly investigated. an american soldier was killed. they called in an ac 130 gunship. this is a c 130 cargo 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
6:23 am
. 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, appeared 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 tasked 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 for 373 high miles missile strike on a house which killed 7 children. nato later recognized the children's deaths they
6:24 am
had caused, but said that initially they had no idea they were there. the colossal price american taxpayers paid, the 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 20. 21. 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 use wash money out of a way out of your back into the hand of already on that in the all my goal in to having
6:25 am
no one to 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 afghan install has been repealed in 20 declassified documents published by the u. s. national security. archive. one shows how issues were consistently and deliberately hidden from the public back in 2002, then defense secretary donald rumsfeld, was worried to the mission, was drifting. but he never mentioned it publicly. rather arguing that there was no point in negotiating with the remnants of the taliban and more than a decade later, an american diplomat had the same concerns. the 1st question of did we know what we were doing? i think the answer is no. if there was ever a notion of mission creep up, get this done. we went from saying that we will get rid of ok. so they can threaten
6:26 am
us to say we're going to end the television. then we said that we will get all the truth the tell about works 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, the editor in chief of what he 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 published by we can least 11 years ago. some of them, of course, went 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 was somehow didn't register the, the ly continues, and that is the, the most of pricing out there. the,
6:27 am
the current events basically is. and the thing clearly may seem media cars come to record with this. how was it possible for 20 years to maintain the like what was going on inside them? julianna's. and also said that the africa was being used to launder american and european money. what, what did he mean by that? the trillion dollar plus the trillion dollars probably under estimate did go into us 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 could only be called corruption on a large scale. on top of that, of course, there's a, the, the corruption inside the sun where basically money was used as carols on to, to pump on the fire. or there were no loved good on the fire,
6:28 am
just to gasoline being pumped on the fire that does not create a lasting bonfire. everybody knows that it's all round up of the headline, grabbing stories in the past 7 days, all t dot com has plenty more. take you over at the top. it is neil hoping to join him, but later on and i'll see you soon. the hello driven by a dreamer shaped by those in me i think we dare to ask me.
6:29 am
ah ah me the me a welcome was acquired the great power poles. this is not different from the jostling place in a high school hierarchy. big guys playing games of him again, one and other well trying to marshall others. why did you have
6:30 am
a come by the ball next, the national interest side by the ever present you political rivalry? no wonder the reading that the next the war will break out in asia is not a credible threat. but it is not that i'm now joy by for while you just former foreign secretary, you actually have a great pleasure, great honor for me to talk to you. thank you very much for planning time. my pleasure. thank you very much for inviting you gave me several days more than 4 days. if you'll like to be diplomatic service. diplomacy, especially in your region, has never been short on rivalry, intrigues and all sorts of complicated relationships. when you look back at your long career, do you think current diplomat, those who are in service right now, do they have it easier or more difficult? when i think the situation is become much more complex than before in asia.
