    Afghanistan's Recognition Problem

    There isn't a single country in the world that recognizes the Taliban as a legitimate government. And neither do many Afghans. One year after the U.S. pulled out of Afghanistan, reporter Najib Aminy checks back in with a teacher from Kabul named Aysha, who fled to the U.K. She was one of the 120,000 people airlifted out of the country as the Taliban took control. Like many other Afghan refugees, she's frustrated that the Taliban's leadership has resulted in having to leave her home country behind. While the Biden administration has claimed to welcome refugees from both Afghanistan and Ukraine, the process for people fleeing the two countries has been unequal. To gain temporary entry to the United States, more than 66,000 Afghans applied through a process called humanitarian parole. But the hurdles for Afghans are huge, including monthslong wait times, piles of paperwork and a steep cost ($575 per person). In contrast, after Russia invaded Ukraine, the United States created a special humanitarian parole process for Ukrainians caught in the conflict – it can be filed online and has no application fee. Government records reveal that only 123 Afghan humanitarian parole applicants have been approved, compared with 68,000 Ukrainian applicants.  Guest host Ike Sriskandarajah and Aminy then head to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where $7 billion in assets belonging to Afghanistan has sat frozen since the Taliban took control of the country last year. Aminy talks with Shah Mehrabi, an economist who sits on the governing board of the Afghan central bank, who says that without access to those assets, the country's economy is headed toward collapse. The Biden administration is in a complicated position as it considers whether to release the money – and how to do it without aiding the Taliban.  Obaidullah Baheer is a lecturer at the American University of Afghanistan who is trying to bring the Taliban and its critics together to chart a future for the country. For Baheer, Afghan politics is personal – his grandfather served as prime minister of the country and is accused of committing war crimes that killed thousands of civilians. With that weight of personal history, Baheer is organizing Afghans to figure out how to resolve the conflicts at the heart of the country today.  Support Reveal's journalism at Revealnews.org/donatenow Subscribe to our weekly newsletter to get the scoop on new episodes at Revealnews.org/newsletter Connect with us onTwitter,Facebook andInstagram

    Afghanistan has, for centuries, been at the center of the world. Long before the U.S. invasion — before the U.S. was even a nation — countless civilizations intersected there, weaving together a colorful tapestry of foods, languages, ethnicities and visions of what Afghanistan was and could be. The story of Afghanistan is too often told from the perspective of outsiders who tried to invade it (and always failed) earning it the nickname "Graveyard of Empires." In this episode, we're shifting the perspective. We'll journey through the centuries alongside Afghan mystical poets. We'll turn the radio dial to hear songs of love and liberation. We'll meet the queen who built the first primary school for girls in the country. And we'll take a closer look at Afghanistan's centuries-long experiment to create a unified nation.

    ABOUT MARINE MAJOR TOM SCHUEMAN, ZAINULLA ZAKI AND ALWAYS FAITHFULBand of Brothers meets Argo in this dramatic and heartfelt dual memoir of the war in Afghanistan told by two men from opposite worlds.Always Faithful entwines the stories of Marine Major Tom Schueman, and his friend and Afghan interpreter, Zainullah "Zak" Zaki, as they describe their parallel lives, converging paths, and unbreakable bond in the face of overwhelming danger, culminating in Zak and his family's harrowing escape from Kabul. In August of 2021, just days shy of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, America ended its longest war. The speed of the Afghanistan's fall was so stunning that thousands of Afghan citizens who had helped American forces over the course of two decades-and had been promised visas in return-were suddenly stranded, in extreme, imminent danger. As the world watched the shocking scenes of desperation at the Kabul airport in the final two weeks of August, Maj. Tom Schueman fought-both behind the scenes and through a social media campaign-to get his friend and former Afghan interpreter, Zak, out of Afghanistan before he and his family were discovered by the Taliban. When Zak and his family finally took off from the airport mere days before the US left the country, the years-long effort to get Zak to America culminated in two simple words on Instagram: "Wheels up."Now in Always Faithful, Tom and Zak tell the full story of the divergent paths that led them to Afghanistan, the dangerous road they walked together in service to America, and how their commitment to each other ended up saving them both. Brilliantly told in Tom's and Zak's alternating first person voices, Always Faithful tracks the parallel lives of these two men who each spent their childhoods in fear, peril, and poverty, and turned to war in attempt to build a meaningful future. On an inevitable course towards each other, their lives dovetail in Afghanistan's deadly Helmand Valley, where they formed a brotherhood that transcends even the most overwhelming of odds, eventually culminating in Zak's harrowing, eleventh-hour rescue.The end result is an intensely personal and uniquely ground-level account of Tom and Zak's experience,Always Faithful gives readers a 360-degree view of the war. At once provocative and heart pounding, their stories together form a microcosm of the complicated and lasting effects of America's longest war. Through their eyes and their experiences, they challenge readers to explore the legacy of the war for American and Afghan citizens alike, as we all collectively seek to understand whether twenty years of war was worth the price.REVIEWSIn plain old good writing, this book tells how two individuals fought the forces of the Taliban, Afghan corruption, and U.S. government bureaucracy to bring one interpreter's family to safety and freedom. It is a gripping and poignant story of quiet heroism, with a hair-raising ending. You will finish this book feeling triumphant for the few that got out, and angry and sad for the many we shamefully left behind. - Karl Marlantes, author of Matterhorn, What It Is Like to Go to War, and Deep RiverSchueman and Zaki offer a haunting account of the courage and sacrifices of U.S. troops alongside their Afghan partners over the past two decades. Amid the backdrop of America's longest war in history and hopes out of reach, their stories are a testament to the enduring human spirit. - U.S. Senator Dick DurbinA tremendous look inside the relationships forged in combat and the dedication and sacrifice of the Afghans and Marines who served side by side to gain a better future for Afghanistan. This book is honest, compelling, and full of suspense. This book is Honor, Courage, and Commitment at its finest. - Lieutenant General Lori Reynolds, United States Marine Corps (retired), former Deputy Commandant for InformationA classic, heartwarming story of two hardened warriors, one Afghan and the other American, who keep faith with each other and emerge triumphant from impending death. This incredible rescue shows what determined Americans can accomplish, despite government incompetence. A fitting metaphor for America's longest and most bungled war. - Bing West, bestselling author ofThe Last Platoon: A Novel of the Afghanistan WarWars are full of fascinating stories. As part literary memoir and part thriller, Always Faithful certainly is one of those. It's a book that demands attention. By telling the story from both an American and an Afghan perspective, Always Faithful offers a unique view within the literature of America's post-9/11 wars, which often lacks the voices of the people most affected. As we contemplate the meaning and value of twenty years of war, Tom Schueman and Zainullah Zaki offer us a path to understand the human cost of service in Afghanistan and the inherent bonds of our shared humanity. - Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and A Man at ArmsABOUT MAJOR TOM SCHUEMANMajor Tom Schueman served in Afghanistan for sixteen months, including the single bloodiest battle of the war in Afghanistan as a platoon commander with the Third Battalion, Fifth Marines in Helmand Province. Schueman redeployed to Afghanistan as a JTAC and advisor to the Afghan National Army while he was a member of First Reconnaissance Battalion. Schueman went on to get his master's in English literature at Georgetown University and teach English literature at the United States Naval Academy. He is currently a student at the Naval War College and remains on active duty. He is also the founder of the nonprofit Patrol Base Abbate.Book Available on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Always-Faithful-Afghanistan-Unshakable-Interpreter/dp/0063260611

    The Fifth Act: America's End in Afghanistan by Elliot Ackerman A powerful and revelatory eyewitness account of the American collapse in Afghanistan, its desperate endgame, and the war's echoing legacy Elliot Ackerman left the American military ten years ago, but his time in Afghanistan and Iraq with the Marines and later as a CIA paramilitary officer marked him indelibly. When the Taliban began to close in on Kabul in August 2021 and the Afghan regime began its death spiral, he found himself pulled back into the conflict. Afghan nationals who had worked closely with the American military and intelligence communities for years now faced brutal reprisal and sought frantically to flee the country with their families. The official US government evacuation effort was a bureaucratic failure that led to a humanitarian catastrophe. With former colleagues and friends protecting the airport in Kabul, Ackerman joined an impromptu effort by a group of journalists and other veterans to arrange flights and negotiate with both Taliban and American forces to secure the safe evacuation of hundreds. These were desperate measures taken during a desperate end to America's longest war. For Ackerman, it also became a chance to reconcile his past with his present. The Fifth Act is an astonishing human document that brings the weight of twenty years of war to bear on a single week, the week the war ended. Using the dramatic rescue efforts in Kabul as his lattice, Ackerman weaves a personal history of the war's long progression, beginning with the initial invasion in the months after 9/11. It is a play in five acts, the fifth act being the story's tragic denouement, a prelude to Afghanistan's dark future. Any reader who wants to understand what went wrong with the war's trajectory will find a trenchant account here. But The Fifth Act also brings readers into close contact with a remarkable group of characters, American and Afghan, who fought the war with courage and dedication, and at great personal cost. Ackerman's story is a first draft of history that feels like a timeless classic.

Everyone was hoping for a chance to get out. But a year ago today, the Taliban began its official takeover of the country one province at a time. Adam Fife with CenCore talks with Boyd about what's happening in the country today, the status of women's rights, and what lies ahead.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    L'hôpital « Afghan-Japan » de Kaboul ne reçoit plus aucun fonds depuis plusieurs semaines. Les employés travaillent de façon bénévole dans l'établissement spécialisé dans les maladies infectieuses et dans la lutte contre le Covid-19. La situation de cette institution de santé publique en Afghanistan est révélatrice des défis du secteur de la santé en Afghanistan. Un système de santé fragilisé par 40 ans de guerre et qui dépend presque entièrement des bailleurs de fonds internationaux.  Avec les sanctions internationales qui pèsent sur le pays depuis que les talibans ont pris le pouvoir il y a presque un an, le système de santé souffre plus que jamais d'un manque de moyens et d'une couverture de soins réduite. Certains établissements de santé ont fermé leurs portes, de nombreux employés médicaux ont démissionné ou quitté le pays, ce qui laisse un nombre réduit de travailleurs qui tentent de répondre aux urgences. L'hôpital afghan-japonais à Kaboul est spécialisé dans les maladies transmissibles. Doté de machines perfectionnées, il est devenu la référence dans la prise en charge des patients atteints du Covid-19. Les 20 lits de l'unité de soins intensifs sont tous occupés par des hommes et des femmes de tous âges. Le Dr. Noorali Nazarzai est le responsable : « Ces patients sont dans des états très critiques, leurs poumons se sont détériorés à 90-95%. Tout l'oxygène qui leur est donné l'est grâce à des respirateurs. S'il n'y avait pas ces machines, nous aurions perdu la plupart de ces patients. » Ce médecin ne sait pas s'il recevra son salaire à la fin du mois, car les caisses de l'hôpital sont vides. « Le contrat de six mois que nous avions avec l'Organisation mondiale de la santé s'est achevé le 14 juillet, comme l'explique le directeur Tariq Ahmad Akbari. Ce contrat n'a pas été renouvelé. Ça nous plonge dans un état de panique et ça stresse tout notre personnel médical. » L'aide internationale finance presque à 100% les hôpitaux publics du pays. Mais la coordination et la communication entre le régime taliban et les gérants de l'aide internationale sont parfois compliquées, et ont des répercussions directes sur le système de santé. « Cela fait un an que nous vivons avec ces tensions, avec le sentiment que tout peut arriver, poursuit Tariq Ahmad Akbari. Peut-être que du personnel sera licencié, ou que nos salaires seront baissés. » ► À lire aussi : Afghanistan: les femmes subissent les mariages contraints et les emprisonnements abusifs, selon Amnesty Sans les financements de la communauté internationale, le système de santé afghan s'effondrerait. De nombreux villages n'ont pas d'accès à un centre médical. Les cliniques mobiles du Croissant-Rouge afghan sont déployées dans plusieurs provinces. Nous suivons le Dr. Sultan Mohammad dans sa tournée dans le village de Shadkhana dans la province de Kaboul. Les consultations ont lieu au premier étage d'une échoppe en construction, des dizaines de femmes en burqa, sont assises à même le sol sur des nattes en plastique. Une femme : « J'ai une douleur dans mon œil. » Le médecin : « Est-ce qu'il est rouge ? » La femme : « Non, il est juste gonflé. » Le médecin : « Est-ce que je peux voir votre œil ? » La femme : « Non. » Le Dr. Sultan Mohammad explique : « Je ne suis pas autorisé à voir son visage selon la tradition locale, donc je ne peux pas voir son œil. À l'hôpital, nous pouvons examiner les femmes, mais pas ici. Je peux seulement lui donner des médicaments en fonction des symptômes qu'elle me décrit. » Près d'eux, un infirmier soigne un enfant âgé de 10 ans blessé à la jambe : « Un chien m'a mordu il y a trois jours. Il n'était pas attaché. Il s'est jeté sur moi et m'a mordu. » La clinique mobile passe trois jours tous les deux mois dans le village : « La plupart des gens n'ont pas les moyens d'aller à l'hôpital parce que c'est très loin, poursuit le Dr. Sultan Mohammad. Si notre équipe ne venait pas ici, alors ils auraient recours à certains remèdes traditionnels qui peuvent être dangereux. » Ce jour-là, 300 patients seront auscultés gratuitement à Shadkhana par les médecins du Croissant-Rouge afghan.  ► À écouter : En Jordanie, la vie cachée de la communauté LGBT+

That's the alarming admission made yesterday by the FBI Director. We'll discuss the latest. As always, I'm keeping an eye out for developing stories. Put these two on your radar. First up, the Chinese Government and its partners have bought over 200,000 acres of American land — including 300 acres near a key Air Force Base. I'll share the latest on attempts to roll back those purchases. Second, an update on the War for the South Pacific. As PDB listeners might recall, there's a big fight between America and China over influence in the South Pacific — with Hawaii in the crosshairs. I've got an update on our government's efforts to claw back power in the region.  And finally, one more thing before I let you go. Questions and comments from listeners, this one from Jeremy in Topeka, Kansas. He's skeptical that Africa should be of interest to Americans.

She's joined Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer to help Joe Biden pass a 9-figure Build Back Better-lite called the Inflation Reduction Act, which reportedly won't reduce inflation and may make it worse. Speaking of inflation, food lines in America are getting longer under Biden as pet owners are abandoning their furry friends at alarming rates because cost are sky high. Then, Biden ends another week as virtual President and tested positive for COVID again. Plus, FBI Director Chris Wray warns of potential terror attacks from Afghanistan after Biden's botched withdrawal and the dangers of our open border.

    Sometimes, the good guys and gals win. Sometimes, the bad guys lose. This is one of those times. The historic SFC Heath Robinson PACT Act for veterans passed the Senate by a vote of 86-11.  But it was wild, it was emotional, it was dramatic, it was infuriating, and it was inspiring. It showed what is still possible in America if a group of concerned citizens are united, focused and motivated. And in this episode, we'll take you inside one of the most dramatic and important political dramas in years.  Our guest in this episode was a key leader in making that victory happen. When, Senator Pat Toomey and the other Republican Senators that stood in the way of the PACT Act, he united the troops, stood alongside Jon Stewart, helped to rally an unstoppable force of veterans, and ultimately emerged triumphant. He's a true leader and one we're proud to call a friend of the show. He's a humanitarian, an activist, and a badass superhero: Matt Zeller (@MattCZeller). Matt is one of the leading advocates for veterans, for Afghan allies, and for America. He's a combat veteran and Army Major that made it out of Afghanistan alive only because of the courage of his Afghan interpreter. And he's been paying it forward ever since. Matt is the courageous Co-Founder of No One Left Behind, aTruman National Security Fellow, the author of Watches Without Time: An American Soldier in Afghanistan, and the newest member of the powerhouse team at Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). Matt joined us on this show for Episode 138 and Episode 127 to sound the alarm about the imminent collapse of Afghanistan and the chaos that would follow. And now he's back to break down the fight for the PACT Act–and update us all on the terrible state of Afghanistan one year after the disasterous American withdrawl. Matt was part of the veterans “Fire Watch”, a group of advocates camped out on the Senate steps pressuring the hold-out senators to pass the PACT Act. They served as America's conscience–and inspired people worldwide. Matt has been on countless TV and radio shows, inside the chamber for the pivotal vote, and he's somehow, still standing. Still fighting. And he's back to break it all down for us in compelling detail. This is a pod that will leave you inspired–and hopeful.  Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by Paul Rieckhoff @PaulRieckhoff) breaks down the most important news stories–and offers light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows.

    General David H. Petraeus, US Army (Ret.), is a Partner with the global investment firm KKR and the Chairman of the KKR Global Institute, which he established in June 2013. He is also a personal venture capitalist and serves on the boards of KKR companies OneStream and Optiv.  Before joining KKR, he served in government for 38-1/2 years, culminating his 37-year military career with six consecutive commands as a general officer, five of which were in combat – including the Surge in Iraq, US Central Command, and US/Coalition Forces in Afghanistan – and then serving as Director of the CIA, following Senate confirmation by a vote of 94-0.  General Petraeus graduated with distinction from the US Military Academy in 1974 and later earned a Ph.D. at Princeton University.  He has held academic appointments at USMA, the City University of New York's Macaulay Honors College, Harvard's Belfer Center, and the University of Southern California.  He is currently a Senior Fellow and Lecturer at Yale's Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Co-Chairman of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Global Advisory Council, Senior Vice President of the Royal United Services Institute, and a member of the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Aspen Strategy Group.  His many awards include four Defense Distinguished Service Medals, the Secretary of State's Distinguished Service Award, the Bronze Star Medal for Valor, two NATO Meritorious Service Medals, the Combat Action Badge, the Ranger tab, and master parachutist wings. He has also been decorated by 13 foreign countries and is believed to be the only person who, while in uniform, threw out the first pitch of a World Series game and did the coin toss for a Super Bowl. He was also runner-up for Time Person of the Year in 2007, when Russia's President Vladimir Putin garnered that honor. On this episode, General Petraeus shares his journey to the late 19th century for a dinner at the Lotus Club in New York City with then former President and retired General Ulysses S. Grant. He puts forward why and how the conversation would unfold. During our interview, General Petraeus also provides perspective on cybersecurity, why Iran may be the next big crisis, managing China, the war in Ukraine, and our commitment to Afghan partners and refugees. Plus, he offers what he never travels without, why exercise and reading are critical diversions during grinding experiences, and why social media is another war zone.
