Taliban celebrates as US officially departs Afghanistan (Full show)

All US personnel and equipment have departed Afghanistan, according to the Pentagon. This comes as allegations surface of civilian deaths from a recent US drone strike. RT's Murad Gazdiev and then RT America's John Huddy reports on the official reaction from the US. Then former Naval intelligence officer John Jordan joins RT America's Tyrel Ventura (in for Rick Sanchez) to share his insights. Then RT America's Sayeh Tavangar reports on the specific details of US soldiers who were killed in the Kabul explosions last week, some of whom were born after the war itself had begun.

It's been a decade since the US-led and NATO-backed toppling of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The country remains embroiled in civil war, with competing foreign powers supporting the rival factions vying for control of the country. RT America's Brigida Santos reports on the decade of chaos and whether the upcoming elections can rescue Libya and restore peace.

Plus, 70 protesters were arrested outside the governor's residence for demonstrating against a new pipeline planned for Minnesota. RT America's Faran Fronczak joins with the details. Then local indigenous leader and environmental activist Jaike Spotted Wolf shares her insights. She explains that wildlife destruction is tantamount to "genocide" for indigenous tribes and that the pipeline represents an existential threat and that politicians, including President Biden, are revealing their hypocrisy and betraying campaign promises by not doing more to stop new pipelines and the devastation they bring to the natural environment.
