Hard to watch as a fellow aviator. It turned my stomach.
They tried to correct it till the end. Looking at the video and from eyewitness (one of my friend was taxiing and on hold saw the whole thing at bagram). Nose went nearly vertical which makes me beleive that the cargo might have shifted the CG to the aft causing the nose to shoot up drastically. Too many speculations at this point

I thought that too w/ the shift in center of gravity. That or some sort of elevator control issue.
Yes shift in CG can be bad news at low altitude. Similar to the Fine Air 101 mishap out of MIA in the 1990s. The elevators could also have jammed or a hydraulic leak or loss in pressure. I noticed that the landing gears were down still which could be a hydraulic pressure failure. That was a true power on stall
I would look hard at the form F , the TCN's they have loading are not known for following standards.
Could also be the trim tabs failing. Generally landing gears go up at a positive climb rate at around 500 AGL. This one was clearly down even at 1200'
It will be interesting what the NTSB finds out.
