Transcript for Inside Afghanistan as America ramps up troop pull-out
We go overseas to Afghanistan where the Taliban is taking back control of more territory as the U.S. Withdraws troops heading towards full withdrawal by September 11th. Martha Raddatz is on the ground in kabul, good morning, Martha. Reporter: Good morning, George. More than 750 U.S. Cargo planes full of equipment have now been flown out of Afghanistan while the Taliban is sweeping the countryside. This morning, with over half of the withdrawal complete and no peace deal in place, the Taliban is rapidly taking ove towns and districts. Releasing video claiming it shows Afghan soldiers peacefully surrendering weapons and military vehicles, what they aren't showing, the hundreds of Afghan soldiers that have been slaughtered. Afghanistan's foreign minister now accusing the Taliban of carrying out the worst violence in two decades. Everyone is living in fear. Abdul, we will use only his first name was side by side with U.S. Marines in helmand province as an interpreter now with a wife and three children, he has yet to get a Visa to leave the country despite the U.S. State department calling it a priority. I know that I will be killed by the Taliban. Reporter: We traveled to the home of a Taliban elder. We just spoke to an Afghan who was an interpreter for the American military. He is very frightened that he will be killed by the Taliban when the Americans leave. He claims the Taliban won't harm anyone, but violence has been widespread. Last month at this school more than 85 people were killed by multiple bombs, mostly young girls. We met 17-year-old sadika out of the hospital recovering from serious wounds and fears it will happen again. I'm very scared about it. Reporter: For many Afghans who live here the feeling is hopelessness and for many of those interpreters and others, 18,000 of them, they are desperately trying to get a Visa with no luck yet. We have a moral responsibility to help them. Thanks very much.
