Don’t Blame Afghan Army for Taliban Rout, Afghan Activist Tells Biden | GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

After Joe Biden questioned the Afghan army's willingness to confront the Taliban offensive, Afghan teacher and human rights activist Pashtana Durrani — currently in hiding for her safety — has a message for the US president: "Let's not dishonor the Afghan army." They were willing to combat the Taliban, she says, and now is not the time to blame soldiers for what corrupt politicians decided. "Let me assure you that Afghans wanted to fight for themselves." Watch a clip from her interview with Ian Bremmer in an upcoming episode of GZERO World.
