    How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism

    Chaos in Afghanistan erupted as President Biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the Taliban. Today, August 17th, we will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy debacles in modern history. Good afternoon, I’m Ethan Kim, and this is the Outspoken Oppa.

    Background Reading:


    In mid-April, President Biden announced the immediate withdrawal of all American troops by September 11.
    On August 15th, the Taliban took over the capital of Kabul, effectively toppling Afghanistan's government.
    Later, Afghan President Ghani fled the country right before Taliban leadership stormed the presidential palace.
    Simultaneously, thousands of Afghan citizens fled to Kabul International Airport to escape the Taliban.
    On August 16th, President Joe Biden addressed the nation after Afghanistan fell to the Taliban

    Within this podcast episode, we dissect Biden's address to the nation and evaluate his withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    Discussing the Future of Education with LCUSD Governing Board President Kaitzer Puglia

    The Outspoken Oppa is an American news and opinion website that is based in La Cañada Flintridge, California. It was founded in 2018 by Ethan Kim, who is the current Executive Editor. Reaching nearly half a million people and with a team of teenage writers, the website consists of news and opinion articles about politics, international affairs, economics, movie reviews, and more. 

    Flashback to December 23rd, 2020. Ethan Kim interviewed Kaitzer Puglia, who is the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board President. In a fifteen-minute interview, they discussed the future of education. Our discussion about California proposition 16, affirmative action, reopening La Cañada schools, and the performance of teachers in distanced learning so far revealed an inside perspective of our local education system.

    Minor correction: Kaitzer Puglia is the La Cañada School District Governing Board President, not the La Cañada School District President.

    Interview hosted by Ethan Kim with the help of Mason Pirkey, edited by Ashely Olson.

    This interview is an independent Outspoken Oppa production, produced by its media team.
