1st anniversary of Kabul’s fall to the Taliban

Michael McLaren

Amin Saikal AM, Adjunct Professor of Social Sciences at University of Western Australia / Visiting Professor at Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore & author of the book ‘Modern Afghanistan: A History of Struggle and Survival’, joins Michael on the anniversary of the Taliban’s capture of Kabul.

Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul fell to the Taliban amid the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan on 15 August 2021, the culmination of a major insurgent offensive that began in May 2021.

This led to the overthrowing of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan under President Ashraf Ghani and reinstatement of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan under the control of the Taliban.
