Tariq Ali: WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange Must Not Be Extradited for Exposing War Crimes in Afghanistan

While it is important not to minimize the threats that jihadi groups such as ISIS and al Qaeda still pose to the Middle East and the world, it will be difficult for them to establish footholds in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, @colebunzel  argues.

WATCH: Biden Official Straight-up Lies, Says They Didn't Leave Americans in Afghanistan

In Kabul, me and @JeffSempleGN  met smart, confident, educated, professional women who now find themselves having to take orders from illiterate Taliban men with guns. They are among the many Afghans trying to get to Canada, as evacuations have stalled.

Why can Americans spend $2 trillion in Afghanistan but don't repair or renovate subways they ride every day? Twitter users ask after contrast between fancy #Xinjiang  subway station and shabby one in #NYC  goes viral.

I applaud the House passage of H.R. 5142 honoring the 13 service members killed in Afghanistan in August. Indiana’s own Marine Cpl. Sanchez will be among the recipients of a Congressional Gold Medal for his sacrifice. More here:

The Kremlin is worried by the risk of Islamist militants spilling into Central Asia from Afghanistan and bristles at the idea of the West gaining a foothold in a region that used to be part of the Soviet Union.

Attorney General Merrick Garland was unable to answer if Joe Biden's withdraw from Afghanistan increases the risk of a terror attack.

Important reporting from @soraya_lennie  on the growing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan right now.

The final act of the U.S. war in Afghanistan was a drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 people. Our latest investigation shows how a man the military saw as an "imminent threat" and "ISIS facilitator" was actually an aid worker returning to his family:

Julian Assange speaking in 2011: "The goal is to use Afghanistan to wash money out of the tax bases of the US and Europe through Afghanistan and back into the hands of a transnational security elite. The goal is an endless war, not a successful war" #Afghanistan 

It’s worth noting that many of the same people attacking the Biden Administration for leaving women’s rights behind in Afghanistan are eager to control women’s bodies and choices in the United States.

This Afghanistan vet just blew up MSNBC’s entire Biden-simping Afghanistan narrative LIVE ON AIR. What a glorious takedown. Watch this.

Walking around kabul. Hard stares. Mood changing. People not just sad, but angry, blaming the US for abandoning the country to war, chaos, and the Taliban

What the world is seeing now in Afghanistan is what the world chose to ignore for far too long. War is hell. It always has been. And it always will be. Its currency is death, dismemberment, desperation, and fear. It doesn’t end in parades. It ends in caskets.

How much money did we spend in Afghanistan over the last 20 years that we were told we could never afford to spend at home?

A young military man working in Afghanistan told me that elections in Afghanistan are far more secure and much better run than the USA’s 2020 Election. Ours, with its millions and millions of corrupt Mail-In Ballots, was the election of a third world country. Fake President!

We should have the small remaining number of our BRAVE Men and Women serving in Afghanistan home by Christmas!
