5:02 am
and he blamed afghan forces the collapsing far more quickly than expected. and fisher reports from the white house, my fellow americans. the war in afghanistan is now over. joe biden brought an end to america's involvement and it's longest war 20 years, which still lives cost money and damage to medic. his image in the world war to remove the taliban, which again sits in power in kill bill. we're left with a simple decision either follow through the commit made by the last administration and leave afghanistan or say we weren't levy and commit another tens of thousands more troops. going back to war. that was the choice, the real choice between libby or escalating, he promised all americans who wanted to leave would be evacuated before the u. s.
5:03 am
military where they went somewhere between one and 200 are still they are stranded but bite and insists not forgotten. and for those remaining americans, there is no deadline. we remain committed to get them out if they want to come out . but the president pace is going criticism from political opponents. and even though is on his own site, the say he fail his leadership feel, america feel the lives have got to stop the accountability needs to be there. but most importantly, americans need to be able to be brought home. this cannot be our history. this cannot be where this ends. we will not allow a. 6 whitening says he did the best job possible after the previous administration, never mentioning, come by name, saying to deal to pill, trips out without political assurances. and to the new threat, the group behind last week suicide attack at the international airport. there was this warning to ices k. we are not done with you yet. the air left
5:04 am
organized and carried out in such a short space of time was undoubtedly a military, diplomatic, and humanity. and success with americans left behind it for very little america had questions to ask about his involvement in afghanistan. questions that are obvious and difficult. you'll buys and has been politically damaged by what has happened over the last few weeks. he didn't start the war, but what happened at the end? well, hang over the remainder of his time and i'll fisher, i'll just see it up at the white house spring. and gabriel alexander, who lives in washington dc. gabriel biden. not only talking about his don, but also talking about the big picture of wanting to change us foreign policy. tell us more about what he had to say on that. yeah, that's right. he wants to use this pull out from afghanistan to really rearrange, if you will, u. s. foreign policy in many different ways. first of all,
5:05 am
he mentioned in his speech, both china and russia. he said both of those countries were bigger. threats in many ways to the united states in afghanistan is, but that afghanistan was taking up too much of the u. s. is priorities if you will, with so many troops there for so long. he also mentioned cyber attacks as well. need the u. s. needs to focus on that more and will be able to do that now. now that the us doesn't have so many troops in afghanistan, it's so much attention and resources on that country said that that they're both beijing and moscow would like nothing more than for the us to remain in afghanistan and be bog down there for another 2 decades. beyond that though, biden pointed to 2 fundamental mentors, if you will, in his foreign policy. now he said that moving forward, any us diplomatic or particularly military missions,
5:06 am
should be guided by the missions to the us should only get involved with what they have clear and achievable goals. he said that when the us 1st got into afghanistan, us had that to go after a, some of the latin and to dismantle ok to. but after they achieve those goals, biden feels the united states got totally off track and stuck in afghanistan to the detriment of the u. s. he thinks and 2nd, that any other mission moving forward needs to focus on the fundamental or national security of the interest of the united states and nothing else. and he felt that that was not the case in afghanistan for many years. now. these are mentors that many presidents, including 3 before president biden had to deal with with afghan stan and had it been echoed by other presidents. but you got a sense that joe biden really believes this and wants to follow through on this and did so. he feels with the pull out of us troops from afghanistan. and finally,
5:07 am
i'll say that, you know, biden has long said that the u. s. felt that the u. s. should get out of afghanistan completely. in fact, when his vice president dough to brock obama, he advised, then president obama to pull troops out of ghana stand. obama did not take his advice, kept troops there by and always said, if i become president, i will pull out all us troops map, ganna. stan, he became president, he did exactly that. and you could tell from his very defiant speech if you will, that he has no regrets. when he, thanks for that. gabriel alexander there for us in washington d. c. united kingdom says it's in direct talks with the taliban to secure safe passage out of afghanistan for british nationals and african allies who remain there. the talks involving u. k. officials and senior. how about members all taking place in doha versus mission came to an end on saturday, flying more than 15000 people out in the past 2 weeks. or the foreign forces gone
5:08 am
from afghanistan. the taliban are now looking to the future. hours after the departure of the us taliban leaders spoke of attracting international investment and forming and inclusive government. others surveyed what was left of america's last military installation at cobble airport charlotte ballad. as this report, the roar of j changes and the cries vacuum, we've gone. the united states biggest humanitarian air lift is finished. foreign forces have left and the taliban is surveying territory. it hasn't house in to dicker today without any doubt was the day of f. ganeth dan's independence when we don't see a single foreign soldier and whoever invaded this country without permission. we got rid of them and this was a proud historical moment for us. but the celebration return fell flash cobble international when we drove from the civilian to the military side of the airport.
5:09 am
we are very sad, believe me, after we saw the situation where hurt. this is where the americans vacated from last night. you can still see their planes, equipment helicopters here. the tele bond was us here. and last night they moved was one of the joy celebration they were shooting in the sky. there were, there were fireworks that were very happy that the americans had left. then they saw what was left behind disable planes and helicopters after the last c, 17 transport plane took off. so layman, aka was the 1st to enter the former us space. on. the 1st thing was they were panicking in a hurry and destroyed everything that was useful. honestly, they didn't leave anything useful, nor did they leave any dignity or pride in themselves. the telephone says it was
5:10 am
supposed to have relationship and mutual respect with the us and international community as the group seeks foreign investment. but they say this is a bad start. this is a national betrayal. nato said we will help you and continue our assistance. what kind of help is this? the focus now is on resourcing, commercial flight, the taliban, lex, the resources and technical personnel for this sir, cutter and turkey, helping thousands of s can still want to leave cabal. and believe they are eligible for foreign visas. many still fearful the taliban will run a brutal repressive regime reminiscent of the 1900 ninety's. the taliban held a news conference aimed at reassuring people. it wouldn't. that isn't nice to bother really. these just yeah, we should turn a new chapter. we should bury the hatchet, we have no animosity against any particular faction, party or individual one. we transcend above this all. this is
5:11 am
a close chapter of our history yet, but we are looking forward to the future with one goal in sight. rebuilding our country. but this is a country with a long memory divisions and distrust run deep. the tele bon admits it will take some years for its government to reach its potential. it may take many more for afghans to heal charlotte bellis, osha 0. couple. or as the taliban puts together, it's new governance. one of the most pressing problems is the state of the economy . of kind of sounds long standing financial problems got worse as the taliban advance with cues outside banks in couple from mcbride before the trying to get a grip on an economy that is faltering. get best outside one of cobbles made banks . the taliban ally way in just 10 customers at a time as hundreds more weight that turn not very patiently put a bit of command. abraham probably didn't expect to be controlling frustrated

have a santa italy. that reports the syrian government and local leaders from the rebel held city of the raw have reached an agreement for 3 days sci fi g to begin on wednesday. government forces have recently ramped up the offensive to take draw, including blocking the supply of food on medicine. and there's been a bait of rebel attacks on army checkpoints in neighboring towns. hurricane ida has left hundreds of thousands, only u. s. gulf coast without drinking water and electricity at louisiana as governor called the destruction catastrophic. the nighttime curfew is in place in new orleans to storm. the crime of the city was left in darkness and their health concerns as the regions welters, in late summer heat, official se could take weeks to fully restore electricity. so for 4 people have died. phil laval has moved from la plus in louisiana. the only in the city
5:23 am
itself fed okay, in times of the damage from hurricane ida when it comes to the water release. but it's when you get outside of the main city area to places like this is la plus just north of new orleans as a city. that's where you see just the damage that was caused. the winds wrought through here, there is a huge amount of water. it was blown, we are told from a nearby lake and it is completely submerged. this area of the search and rescue operation is going on. they going door to door. there is no way of getting down these roads. i mean, this is an actual road that leads up to the freeway. so what was happening is people having to go buy both volunteers, go buy votes, door to door, to try to reach people. now, there are a number of dangers here. first of all, the fact that you have alligators here, perhaps not one of the obvious pages, but this is louisiana. this is marshall and you've got all of this area where you would typically have alligators living. once i mean you wouldn't tend to see them walking down main street, suburban streets, but once the waters create these rivers,
5:24 am
that means they've got more space to move around. and we saw at jury katrina more alligators. and we know of at least one case in the last couple of days, whether it's been an attack, a 71 year old man, being attacked by an alligator, his wife trying to save his life. she didn't manage to it. his body has since disappeared. the other issue is disease because this water there is a current, but it is filthy and it is sitting here. lots of people who will have been hit by daybreak, who would have been injured. you do not want to get this water on an open wound because the fact that you could get illness disease from this is a big problem getting to a hospital as an even bigger problem because it's very difficult to move anywhere out. of course is the issue of power because you can say down over here, the power lines, these will really badly have these ones still kind of standing. but there are some elsewhere that we've passed it all completely down. these are in the water and the power is off, but there are always, there's always the possibility that it could come, come on intermittently while they try to get it back up because a 1000000 also residents here and we see on it all without power. that's
5:25 am
a big issue because it means that people can't keep cool. it is very hot here. they're expecting temperatures and the regions of the late thirties celsius, somewhere around about $100.00 degrees fahrenheit today. that means that people who need to keep cool cause they can't keep their food cool. people have got to keep hold of their food because there's no way of getting supplies. and this is a real issue. we are told that the search and rescue operation could go on for several days. meanwhile, they just survey the damage. we look at this, this motel. you can see the sign it with a ripped away. if you go over that, zoom in to the front of it, the windows completely blown out. people are trying to clean up, but they're also trying to say stay safe and there is still no word or when this will all be over, but it's less likely to last several weeks. thousands of fighters losing the battle against and out of control. 5 being pushed by strong winds to the northern california city. the cow, though fi is threatening south lake tahoe cross to major highways on tuesday. tens
