Taliban gaining momentum in Afghanistan, gov't disintegrates (FULL SHOW)

Regional capitals in Afghanistan are “falling like dominos” before the Taliban advance as waves of refugees flee to neighboring Pakistan and Iran and forces loyal to the Kabul government defect in droves. There is no talk of compromise by the failing central authority who faces not only an ascendant Taliban but a resurgence of ethnic militias and regional warlords.

Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof and former UN chief weapons inspector Scott Ritter share their analysis of the fate of Afghanistan and of those who collaborated with the US forces, many of whom have been evacuated but now finding their future uncertain.

Plus, Tyrel Ventura of "Watching the Hawks" and Ed Martin of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles join to discuss how great power struggles on the world stage will reshape America.
