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, didn't have to be so complicated. the taliban celebrates taking full control of afghanistan off the declaring they defeated the remnants of the resistance, but anti taliban fighters claim they still hold parts of the eastern time. she probably expected rapists and suspects on her watch list. so discovered among inside them. see if that lifted to germany from afghanistan, the panels trailer introduces a new bill that allows authorities to access the internet accounts and it's a heck of the devices of any one under investigation. we did take the controversial regulation. people can be anonymous on the internet and get them to all sorts of

criminal activity. closing all sorts of, you brandy, almost an entire nation is criminal. everyone is the 1st big field they approve. and i and i go to happy with this this weekend here with our international. my name is colleen bray with the developments were across we this saturday, the 1st the taliban and claims now to have absolute control over afghanistan defeating the large pocket of resistance in the eastern pantry, a province where thousands of anti taliban fighters had formed a stronghold. but in conflicting news off the days of fierce fighting, the opposition says it's holding fast reporting from cobble. here's our senior correspondent. during the night, the city of cavil again erupt. it in almost spontaneous gunfire with a constant rule, most of,
10:02 am
of rifles firing straight around into the air was very reminiscent of what happened when the last of american troops pulled out of terrible airport. the taliban, celebrated by firing into the air log into the night. well, yesterday as we fill matter up here, we had the characteristic sound a bullet makes as it passes. 1 very close a waves almost and at that point we decide that perhaps it's, it's best to remain in doors and we later learned that as many as 17 people from 7 to 17 depending on various sources, died as a result of that gun flaw. yesterday the taliban had since for beads and firing into the air and full celebration by its side to say any fight the poor doing so would have his weapon confiscated and would himself be punished at the celebration was launched. allegedly because of the taliban was celebrating the military
10:03 am
offensive against the last holdout province against taliban rule in a gun. this don punch ship province. we've also learned that perhaps the celebrations were mature because the resistance, those anti taliban forces stationed in pioneer valley come out and said that they haven't yet broken that they're still holding out. and the fighting is going the ongoing, but there are losses on both sides. we have heard from ca, contacts today, that the taliban hasn't been tardy of the problems, but rather several strategic heights and several areas of the proven they have launched attacks from the north, from the south, from the east and west surrounded pans, u r g has also spoken, so those forces fighting against the taliban and pantry valley and they said that while they were welcome negotiations, they are prepared to fight to the end. i just remind everyone, negotiations stretched on for about
10:04 am
a week before this offensive began with taliban representatives, traveling to paget trying, trying to establish a p. c, a peaceful resolution to listen to this standup. but the taliban saying that negotiations fell through because the demands that the i'm futile about forces were making seem to them to be unreasonable. we had heard reports of them demanding 30 percent of municipals in any new government that is formed here and i've gotten some but again i check province is the last remaining province in of ghana thoughts not on the taliban rule. the rest of the country is i'm the direct taliban control and italy uncontested. despite promising to get every us state from the journalist out of afghanistan, nonetheless, hundreds were left behind. as the last american plane departed during the evacuation, some did eventually managed to escape, but only with help from other governments. because of our men and women in uniform,
10:05 am
more than 25000000 afghans are free. have ghana shanisha democracy. i finally want to thank the incredible work of our u. s. military who are doing so much to help bring about a more secure and prosperous and democratic afghanistan for 20 long years. the u. s . has tried to force feed afghanistan, freedom and democracy. now they have another fiasco to show for it. this decision about that can stand is not just about to spout and need an era of major military operations to re make other countries not more than they've been trying to civilize the people who live there. although in essence, it means they have been trying to implement their own system of values and rules in the widest sense of the word. and that included the political structure. so it's the result, nothing but tragedies and losses on both sides sustained by those who did it. i. e,
10:06 am
the united states, and even more so by the people who live in afghanistan, the the colossal waste of money time and human life have no doubt amounted to one of america's biggest defeats, but further muddying its reputation or the hundreds of employees of its global media agency, still stranded, bare with their families. last year alone, the usa, gm's state funded outlets like the voice of america and radio free europe spent over $5000000.00 to win the countries hearts and minds. the organization claims to have the ears of over 60 percent of the afghan population as well. no doubt cutting edge propaganda was just as important to washington as state of the art bombs.
10:07 am
radio free europe and radio liberty mission is to promote mccrae to fail, use, and institutions by reporting. the news in countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. voice of america will serve as a constantly reliable and authoritative source of news was of america will represent america, not any single segment of american society. and will therefore present a balanced and comprehensive projection of significant american thought and institutions. officials on the house foreign affairs committee, se the 50 usa gm journalists were able to escape after getting help from other governments. the state department hasn't even put forward a concrete plan to get its own personnel back home. it just relate a promise that no one has been forgotten. we did not forget about you say, jam employees and families are, will, we will remain keenly focused on getting them out safely. just as soon as we can,
10:08 am
the usa g m spokesperson has confirmed that their people are still in a life and death situation. we've asked us a gm exactly how many there are. but reports suggest around $500.00 employees and their families remain a situation. republicans describe as disgraceful. my office was working with one of these journalists and tried for 2 weeks to get attention brought his case. so he, his wife and his infant child could be saved, but our police were ignored. it's absolutely disgraceful. the us state department claimed they evacuated the local employees when in reality they abandoned hundreds of usa gm journalists and their families. a scrambled evacuation terrorist attacks a couple airport and a government that doesn't exactly love the us state department. it's a horrifying situation. it's a horrifying ideal. i mean, we've essentially our government essentially left these people to be murdered, slaughtered by the taliban. these people were as seen by taliban. they were us
10:09 am
propaganda agents hired and paid by the us government to to report news favorable to democracy, to what to the west, to the u. s. government. and now we've just abandoned them. this is unconscionable . it's immoral. it's disgusting because the american people do not think of their government as a sort of government that would do something like that. and yet, here we are, these sort of people who have been a top priority to getting out of afghanistan along with others who have been the cross hairs of the taliban. and now they're essentially stuck and left to fend on their own. it's going to be very difficult to get others trust united states government. but then again, you know, our military industrial complex is all the money in the world. so, you know, you can always at the prices, right? so it might step up to the plate and do it. and we've asked the u. s. federal agency for global media for comment on this will bring you that response. as soon as we hear anything back, people being left behind isn't anything the public's being blasting the united
10:10 am
states for apparently over a 100 dogs. some of the military k nines were abandon, despite the efforts of an animal rescue center in cobble to fly them out of a founder of the nonprofit is reported to still be in afghanistan. poly boys get reports. what's called the internet mazda than anything. a handful of what looks like a band coaches. this photo have gone viral, purportedly showing us military service dog left behind. on the tarmac in couples ravaged apple fog, a major backlash on line with people suggesting that this image is a symbol of the heartlessness of joe biden, dithering administration. but washington says this latest pile on isn't fat fake news? apparently, the case animal was anything to do with the us military. they belonged to contractors and had been passed. them were in the process of being evacuated by a point, but animal shelter and couple called
10:11 am
a couple small animal rescue. our sources for this or the pentagon and the department of defense folks person. the dogs in the picture are actually in the care of cobbled small animal rescue and animal welfare organization. the 1st casualty of war though, in truth and the fate of the dog in the cages is still a mystery. i was talking to ortiz, mariah garcia, he's one of the early reports on the ground in capital. and he told me that it's still not clear who's dogs these why and why they were left behind. you the, the don't great. such as the on last one kind of an official apparent. he told me that they'll retrain and we deploy the dog to work for them. instead, they're still running around the perimeter of the airport and the taliban. ah, the taliban has contacted animal control dog control to catch them. i know they say
10:12 am
they haven't sentenced them to death, just like with the war itself. america just call when online right now. earlier in august when actual footage of us service dogs being evacuated from capital did emerge, it led to a comment that american dogs lives were more precious than those of afghan human. u. k. government came on defy a couple of weeks ago as well for being too slow to help with the evacuation of a 150 cats and dogs from a campbell animal shelter run by an expert marine called pen balding when one conservative politician you will so happens to be an afghan war that trent was questioned about that this was his response. the difficulty is getting people into and out of the airport and we just use a lot of troops to bring in 200 dogs. meanwhile, my interpreter, family likely to be killed is one interpreter of me. a few days ago was my 5 year
10:13 am
old with less than your dog. that point. while the us is accused of rescuing too few people from afghanistan, germany might have taken a few too many after admitting that it evacuated 20 people who question including suspected terrorists and a convicted rapist among the rescue cheese is your correspondent and he was able to airlift around 4 and a half 1000 people out of the country before cobble international airport was closed. that going through the process of identifying exactly who has arrived here in the country right now. while they've been doing that, while they've uncovered that, amongst those people that came here on the evacuation flight to germany was one saw out mohammed. and the reason he is being named like that is because he was very well known to german authorities. the reason he was very well known was because he previously being deported from germany that was off the in 2012. he was convicted of having raped his daughter over multiple years by
10:14 am
a court in munich. now he was sentenced to 8 years in 3 months for crime. he was deported to afghanistan back in 2019. we have heard from the interior ministry previously saying that there was no way to carry out checks on the ground in cobble for exactly who was getting on german evacuation flights. some of them totally falsified their papers from a to said. there was an emergency, and cocoa and such situations are always exploited by criminals. for the german government identifies around 40000 people still in afghanistan that it says should be able to come here to germany. when you look at about 4 and a half 1000 people that have already been evacuated though, well, when it comes to the people that angular merkle said would have priority. that people who had work directly with german military, german, diplomat, german,
10:15 am
and 200 of those were on those flights that have already left when you include in the family, members of those people. well, you're still looking at less than one in 5 of the people that are already being brought to germany. having fits into that category that anglo miracle said were the priority long. we will continue their vacation operation for as long as possible in order to make it possible for after school worked with us for security, freedom, the rule of law and development to leave the country. so when you look at these people as well, like the, the one i mentioned had previously been reported. we had heard from the interior ministry that they said happened. the number that was previously given was that there was 4 search cases. well, that's now being revised into a well, incredibly vague, there's many or more by the federal police who are on the ground and frank for apple. if you are going through the task of identifying people who come here on
10:16 am
evacuation flights now. as soon as the cargo airport is reopened, we are expecting more hoping that more of those people can come here to germany. however, as it stands at the moment, you're seeing germany having missed its target for people at wanted to evacuate from afghanistan by 90 percent. and also having issues with those who have been able to come here on the evacuation flights that have already arrived at sunny has a saturday all the way messaging service whatsapp gets an expensive regulatory slap from the e u. and it's all about uses, privacy go with, i'll tell you the weekend, don't go away. ah, ah, is your media a reflection of reality? the in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for
10:17 am
tyson lation community? are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere? direct? what is true? what is fake me in the world corrupted, you need to defend the join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows, use. join me every 1st day on the alec salmon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then in the news.
10:18 am
ah hello again. a number of foreign diplomats working in russia, including from the u. s. and germany being accused of handing a generous financial support to political opposition. movements here, the russian foreign ministry says one of the main beneficiaries as the now defunct organization of prominent activists. alexi developing a corresponding constant, the raj cups across the board. high that what more is the ministry saying about this? hello, collin. well, these are quite serious allegations that we're looking at here according to a reason harvey. russia is foreign ministry, spokeswoman western embassies in russia help fund jailed opposition. figure relax and evolving in the eyes of the authorities. this, of course, amounts to blatant interference in russia's political affairs by foreign states and maria, the harv, i couldn't help, but draw parallels where the heated debate between russia and the us that ensued in the wake of america's 2016 presidential election. following the 2016 elections in
10:19 am
the us, doesn't the freshman diplomats were accused of meddling in the election process and expelled without any proof whatsoever. i dread to think what would have happened if they had found a single dollar transferred from russia to any party in america. and this is what the scheme looked like. according to maria harbor, foreign embassies, namely the west and germany, hired russian citizens to transfer money to nevada. now he's projects as a private donations, one of them. the anti corruption fund, was rendered an extremist organization for inciting on authorized demonstrations in russia earlier this year. or is a harvest, as it's unclear whether the transfers were done voluntarily by embassy staff, who simply sympathized with the valley or just may be part of their salaries, were designated to sponsor the russian opposition all along. what's important here is that for officials, the situation is totally unacceptable. and is a clear case of meddling in russian politics. i suspect will have
10:20 am
a little more of this in the ground rush towards next month's duma elections. ok for now, constantly roscoe. thank you. thanks, the australian parliament has passed a bill to grant police power to access suspects, social media accounts, and even control them. and a lot of the authorities to modify and delete suspects data and hacked their devices without having to seek a judges approval and said that the powers needed to fight terrorism and child exploitation, much of which is conducted online. critics outstretched that the new bill makes the australian police judge jury and executioner. while for instance, in britain, in the us, no such powers have been grounded at the same time. there's also been discussion about the possibility of introducing id checks, figures on social media, and also dating apps. australia will be asked to answer a 100 point questionnaire before setting up an account. essentially putting an end to anonymity on the internet for many of the suggestion was also in the tackling online abuse. but it didn't make its way into the current bill. we got some
10:21 am
reaction about the unprecedented powers now being given to the police. i believe that people should be identifiable relatively quickly and relatively straightforwardly. should they do something which harms others. things like that's always useful to investigations into investigative offices because communication between individuals is usually a key part of that investigation. and evidentially very important this. this is clearly police haven, you know police needs to do no more. we call leap fascism. really because this is the way the government is effectively controlling the media. in this case, social media or the internet. the source of the problem is that social media, an internet communication, has moved on leaps and bounds. and legislation hasn't kept up with it. probably
10:22 am
because legislation simply cannot lose that fast. and communication technology has moved incredible speed like speed over the last few decades. and so, problems have a reason where legitimate interests of the state legitimacy interests of the course, legitimate interest of others, have failed to provide sufficient ways into internet communications. and so that lacks behind the times. the reality is that in nearly all cases we are able to, to unravel the aid id of people, people who use email addresses and credit cards and they pay for things entities nearly always possible to, to find out who they are, no matter where they are in the world and you know, this is the dope of the police, here's the police will lead to work a little bit and do
10:23 am
a little bit of digging and do a little bit of investigation, you know, to now you cannot incriminate being an entire nation in practice people can be anonymous on the internet and get up to all sorts of criminal activity, closing all sorts of home with the states and judicial bodies, having no practical way of getting behind that. and so that, that is the, the, the home that needs to be addressed. so the ballot has to be struck where there are sufficient safeguards to make sure that the police are doing it on the spec, as it were. and that got proper grounds for it. and so those things do take time. so as getting the balance, right, remember, governments will take as much power as they possibly can. and this is what the stream in government is doing. now they are just taking as much power as the possibly can because they can wear islands. data regulator has
10:24 am
stopped the what's up messaging service with the record 225000000 euro fine for breaching you data privacy laws. it relates to a probe, launched in 2018 questioning, the transparency of the company's privacy policies. they included the way uses data was processed and clarity of how rules are applied on the platform. the commission calls the violations very serious, while face will come and warps up says it disagrees with the decision. also, infringement, same of you, very serious nature. they go to the heart of the general principle after spare, and see, and to fund a mental right of the individual to protection of he's held personal data. we have worked to ensure the information we provide is transparent and comprehensive and will continue to do so. we disagree with the decision today regarding the transparency we provided to people in 2018 and the penalties are entirely disproportionate. on it's not the 1st instance of penalties being imposed on tech
10:25 am
giants in europe just this summer. amazon was fined by luxembourg regulator, the breaching you data protection rules as well. but privacy campaign and tech expert they'll mir believes that as huge as these fines look. the firms will really notice. but there are some companies on facebook and google are examples of this. but actually have a business model based on exploiting data. and these companies need to be held to account to the different level. the problem that we have is while nominally under g d, p r, you can find a company for 4 percent of its revenue. very few of the dental protection authorities are doing this. facebook and what's up or in a position where they are regularly falling fall of the regulations. i'm finding pricing already built fraction that whole this volume is, is up the chicken feed to them. they all have enormously deep pockets, and there's actually no assurance that this foreign will actually ever be levied
10:26 am
against them. they can go to appeal and they will stretch this out as long as they can. and the irish regulate it's just to try and short tracks big tech booms to base that european headquarters in ireland for a favorable tax regime. now, volumes is in charge of regulating these organizations and i didn't really want to run the boat. ok if you are going to be spending the weekend, checking out your socials and look up our t as well and give us a follow as if from us. for now, i'll have the next update from the moscow news team in just over half an hour. see that the cataract 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
10:27 am
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 that was meant to treat instead of beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up to something wonderful. very often they're harmful effects and up to something terrible can bill so of all ills. or are we trying to mitigate life itself? i just think i was like i was just scared scare a little girl. the 24. and like i didn't have to be so complicated the the me the
10:28 am
who's dom action or senior, what's going on the ground, the team and i are away at the moment, but we'll be back for a new series on september the 8th until then we'll be playing some of your favorite episodes of this season coming up on the show looking at imperialism, had germany and the history buried by the victor. exactly 232 years since the creation of the united states department of war has today. the u. s. u. k. and israel wretched up tensions with iran will guess. the 7th is also exactly 31 years in for 1st american soldiers arrived in saudi arabia as part of persian gulf war, one and 5070. as in the passing of the gulf of tonkin resolution, which escalated doomed,
10:29 am
washington mass killing pro vietnam to allow in cambodia. the real history of these events is often missing from textbooks and history classes in nato nations. a new volume by retired us army officer major danny search and attempts to remedy all that by telling a true history of the united states. he joins me now from lawrence in kansas. dami, welcome to going under ground before we get to this monumental history of the united states. i mean, it's up there with how it's in, arguably, and how you manage to teach this to us army soldiers at west point, which will get hundreds. mazing, the whole idea of it, you will take, obviously, on us troops fleeing in the dead of night from afghanistan. will you fought for the u. s. army? well, i think it's, it's a tragedy for the young people, but it's been an ongoing tragedy in general that there's been 4 years of war. i think the american troops leaving the dead of night is a fitting way for the imperial us sort of forces to go this war. it's been over for
10:30 am
10 years or longer when, you know, when i fought there in 2011. well, it was the height of the us true presence and we barely controlled anything but the ground we stood on. i'm for the withdrawal. i don't think that america can meaningfully influenced the outcomes in afghan us than and the whole thing is a tragedy. but more so for the people of afghan us than i support the withdrawal. but we're, we're going out with our tail between our legs, which is surprising to people who weren't paying attention. i think so, the fact that the united states really has really not achieved anything in afghanistan and things are worse essentially than, than we found it or, or then we found that in february 2002 in combat operations were declared over. yeah, i mean, in this country, thousands of british troops wounded hundreds of thousands of afghans. obviously the army doesn't count the us over you. k hope you didn't get african civilians. i mean use the word imperial there. people are going to wonder when you.
