  • WCBS 880 Weekly Rewind: Inside the Afghanistan Crisis

    Produced by Neil A. Carousso

    NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The United States military is evacuating Americans and Afghans from Kabul after the Taliban regained control of the war-torn country as U.S. troops withdraw.

    WCBS anchor Lynda Lopez looks at the failures in Afghanistan and the resulting humanitarian crisis, especially the plight of innocent Afghan women and girls who had made strides the past two decades in their fight for basic rights. The 880 Weekly Rewind also talks to a U.S. veteran who served in Afghanistan and Ari Fleischer, the press secretary for former President George W. Bush when the war on terror began.

    Also on this week’s episode, Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine expert who is a voting member of the FDA’s advisory committee that approved Pfizer and Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines, explains why he does not believe booster shots are necessary, yet, as officials announce third doses will be available to fully vaccinated Americans starting the week of September 20.
