US and Allies tell lies

Aug 15, 2021

The future of Afghanistan is topping most international agendas this week, with many fearing a return to Taliban rule of 20 years ago. The group’s continuing to make strong advances across the country, taking control of major cities. It’s also managed to release thousands of prisoners, and looted military barracks, some of which were run, until last month, by the United States. As hundreds of thousands of Afghans flee their homes trying to find safety elsewhere, President Ashraf Ghani is determined the Taliban will not win: But what can Ghani do to stop the Taliban?

Presenter: Kim Vinell Guests: Shinkhai Karokhail, member of Afghanistan’s National Parliament and Chairwoman of the Parliamentary Women Caucus. Haroun Rahimi, assistant Professor of Law at American University of Afghanistan. Nick Kay, former UK ambassador to Afghanistan.
