11:02 pm
sebelius will be in congress testifying this week. derrell issa says. >> if somebody doesn't leave, and there isn't a real restructuring not just a 60 days, somebody try fix it then he's missing the point of management 101 which is these people are to serve him well and they haven't. >> mississippi for one hoped to see thousands enroll for insurance but so far only a few dozen have signed up. steph mstephanie boswell report. >> jar fist dortch. >> i worried about that every day. because all it takes is one
11:03 pm
accident and you could be 20 to $100,000 in debt or more than that. you just never know. >> miller says he and his wife are searching for health care but they couldn't even get on the new federal health care exchange website. in jackson barber shop owner chris paige and his customer terry harper says they have insurance but both plan to look at their options under the aya. >> i may get better coverage. i just got the minimum level coverage so i could have something that would cover me if something was to happen to me. >> neither paige nor harper have gone online to compare rates. >> every time you would log in there was something wrong that you couldn't sign up they had computer glitches. >> mississippi was the only state that signed to run its own exchange but was rejected because the state couldn't provide enough support for it.
11:04 pm
that leaves people here using the troubled federal exchange. as of october 31st only 35 people have signed up. health care advocates are catching up. >> a lot of the advocacy groups, a lot of the provider groups are preparing for a mississippi based exchange. we have been behind other states in trying to get the word out about the exchange. >> jarvis dortch is training to be a federally funded navigator, a person who helps people deal with the health care marketplace. >> right now our focus is going to be enrolling mississippians. >> that may be easier said than done. because many residents don't have internet access or even computers plus: >> according to the u.s. department of health and human services mississippi is the least healthy state in the
11:05 pm
nation. mississippi only received $1 million to publicize the plan. arkansas, its neighbor, received $24 million. navigators have helped nearly 4,000 patients. which received less money is having an outreach to get computers to people. >> we're definitely needing more funding. you're going ohave to knock on doors to help people enroll in these plans and actually walk people through the process. >> chris miller says he may take another look at hearlt exchanges but will wait until the website is more reliable. stephanie boswell, picayune, mississippi. the nsa monitored 60 million phone calls last december. el mundo is getting the
11:06 pm
information from edward snowden. comes from claims that president obama knew about and improved spying on angela merkel. not true. house and homeland security, says the house should stop apologizing for the nsa, and dick cheney agreed. >> important to the security of the nation and need to be preserved. >> the reality is the nsa has saved thousands of lives not only the united states but in france and germany and throughout europe. the french are ones to talk. the fact is they carried out spying operations against united states both the government and industry. >> a much different thought though from democratic senator jean sheheen. she called for the government to come clean about its surveillance program. >> i think the revelations from snowden and the secrets that have been revealed are doing significant damage to our
11:07 pm
bilateral ription relationshipsh germany with mexico with the other countries where the suggestion is we've listened in. so i think we have repair work to do and we have hard questions we need to ask about the nsa about what is really happening in this program. >> and earlier we spoke with jim walsh at the massachusetts institute of technology about whether the u.s. should apologize for the nsa. >> he's not president of the united states, he doesn't have to meet angela merkel when she is really mad at him. do the french spy? yes they do. do the germans spy? yes they do. do they benefit? yes they do. but it's clear that those voters in france, those voters in germany are very upset about u.s. surveillance. and i think the leaders, part of it is personality and if someone's really angry at you or feels you betrayed their trust
11:08 pm
then it does matter and if it's the president of germany then yes it does matter. when peter king says we saved thousands of people let's be careful about our generalizations. nsa does lots of different things and not clear at all as senator shaheen suggested that every one of these programs is absolutely necessary in its scope and duration. so i think there are answers that have to be made here. >> if all these countries are doing basically everything the nsa does are these foreign leaders truly yum set or are they asking upset because this is public and their public is angry. >> great question, the answer is probably both. i'm not a psychologist by training, i work in international relations. but if you look at the straiment statements the german chancellor has made this past week, part of
11:09 pm
it is domestic politics and you expect nations to spy. but if you found out your most important ally was listening to your phone calls, you would probably be upset, you could understand it at some level because spying is part of foreign policy, but you are a human being and you would be ticked off and she is. >> united states is not the only country that spies on world leaders. madeline albright said that once she was at the united nations and said. >> rick: a french are ambassador asked her about something she said on a phone call. this is not unusual that people spy. >> a group of soldiers in mosl, injured more than 150, it raises this month's death toll to 545 people killed.

11:11 pm
there is strong cooperation, between the opcw has also confirmed in recent statements and we build on this which is because we have one shared goal, the elimination of the program which is of benefit to all particularly syrian people. >> not all are convinced as evidenced on abc's this week. >> in fact the chemical weapons are being cataloged, the inspectors are in there and putting a stop to the program. >> we'll see. i'm a skeptic, like a lot of other people are, and our friends in the region are worried. >> syria is believed to possess 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons, including serin. underthreats of military action, russia an ally of the assad governmental, brokered a deal
11:12 pm
for syria to destroy its chemical weapons stock piles. it's still not been decided how or where syria's chemical weapons will be dismantled. the next step comes november 1st when syria is expected to dismantle its mixing facilities. kimberly cathart, al jazeera. >> they are cooperating right now with the inspectors of the opcw. they are preparing their reports they have to submit. it's together with them that they have prepared the proposal for the destruction. everything really now is going to hinge on how the warfare agents themselves will be destroyed. >> as syria moves forward here do you think that it's being
11:13 pm
honest and accurate in detailing all the chemical weapons that country has? >> well, according to all its records, syria is doing its best to meet all the conditions that are imposed upon it. however we must bear in mind syria is in the midst of a civil war. it's responsible for its chemical weapons arsenal, we must bear in mind that even for the other parties to the chemical weapons conventions additional supplementary declarations have been made to deal with inaccuracies, we also must allow syria to have that. >> well his band the velvet underground was considered the most influential in rock, inspiring the likes of david bowie and u 2.
11:14 pm
juan los molina has more on the rock legend. >> for lou reed, life was expressed through music. his band the vel vel vet underground set the tone for music in the early '60s and '70s. >> for a lot of people who wanted underground music, lou was as important as the beatles. >> lou reed and other iconic musical cps remembering what his music meant to them. >> fan of the underground was years ahead of their time. lou reed, he sort of god father of punk rock, really. >> when i was in high school he was my musical test, growing up in a small town in wyoming
11:15 pm
listening to that type of music, it was so bizarre to all the country western i listened to. >> collaborating with andy warhol but as influential as it was their first album sold few copies. >> the classic quote about the velvet underground is that only 30,000 or so bought velvet underground records but every one of those people went on to start rock bands. called alternative rock in the '80s or '90s. >> hey babe take a walk on the wild side. >> he had more success as a solo artist after the velvet underground broke up in the '70s. >> he had commercial success with transformer. and walk on the wild side. >> reed made no secret with problems with drugs and alcohol.

11:21 pm
treacherous passage to puerto rico. this man who prefers to remain anonymous. >> the more they drown the more they attempt to cross and they're not afraid. a lot of people have died, a lot have made it. we risk ourselves because of our conditions. >> reporter: the dangers of making the crossing are all too real for los lorenzo santiago, e has this picture of her husband, she's struggling to feed her three children. >> translator: he told me i'm going opuerto rico to go for two or three years to buy a house for the children to give them a better future. i didn't want him to go. i tell him not ogo but he told me had to. >> these both never made the crossing to puerto rico, they were confiscated and now sit
11:22 pm
here in the local navy yard, symbols of desperation. at least 20 people will pack into a boat like this spending thousands of dollars in a hope of a better life. but for those who managed to make it safely here to puerto rico their journeys have only just begun. at the san mateo church in san juan, father louis offers shelter and advice. he has helped hundreds of haitians, settle in new york but without proper contacts many will remain in limbo. >> translator: it's like the lottery, they look for a better chance. they play to win but you can also lose. they play with their lives. >> but expedite the massive risks, people say they have nothing to lose. >> translator: what we left behind was a dangerous world and that's why i'm so happy now.
11:23 pm
we are in a better world. i like that. that's why we struggle to get here from a place that has no joy and when we were always scared of failure. >> these men and women risked all to come here driven by desperation and filled with hope. while they may not know what lies ahead, they are taking a gamble and don't know what they left behind. remember they spent everything they had to make that dangerous crossing from the dominican republic to puerto rico. the smugglers charge about $1500 per crossing. back in 2009 they stopped five people. this year alone that figure is approaching 2,000. >> recent shipwrecks in the mediterranean have killed hundreds of migrants but the tragedies have not stopped people from trying to reach europe's shores. barnaby phillips has more. >> it has been voted the most

11:25 pm
sicily because lampedusa is struggling with the migrants they already have. but this is not an italian problem. >> the biggest parts of these immigrants wish to go to germany norway other parts of europe that have at this moment a more flourishing economy. this is an historic situation in which people are leaving their home land because of the change of the climate, because of wars, it's a massive activity. >> this is center which the italian authorities built to house migrants on lampledz. it was--lampedusa. it was built for 250, 300 people. at the moment there are over 700 inside. we were not given permission to enter. so from through the fence we talked to mohamed from africa. how was the sea journey?
11:26 pm
>> so crowded, the waves, the sea like you see it, it's too dangerous. >> reporter: what do you want now, what is your dream for the future? >> to complete my studies. so have respect. >> lampedusa was a sleepy place known for fishermen and sunsets. now it has a fame it never desired. as the island which people risk everything to reach. barnaby phillips, are al jazeera, lampedusa. >> all right, well, darren haynes is here with sports and game 4 is wrapping up and the series is getting kind of interesting. >> it is getting interesting, jonathan, you know what? after a controversial game 3, they're back at it in game 4.

11:31 pm
rock leader lou reed passed away at the age of 71. his agent said his death was related to a recent liver transplant. nsa's strained transatlantic ties. a german magazine claims that the u.s. was tapping angela merkel's cell phone for more than a decade. >> when president obama spoke at brandenburg gate this summer, the u.s. was already facing tough questions about its sphainsurveillance programs. >> our current programs are bound by the rule of law and they're focused on threats to our security not the communications of ordinary persons. >> but apparently, the u.s. had been focused on the communications of official persons. der spiegel said that the nsa
11:32 pm
used high tech antenna to spy on government officials. geblg thre angela merkel, threes before she became chancellor. it said nothing about whether it had monitored her. the revelations have sparked outrages in ger germany becausef east germany's past, like many germans, mervelg merkel is deman explanation and sending her intelligence chief to get one. >> also spied on the presidents of mexico and brazil and maybe spying on allies in 80 other
11:33 pm
countries. thousands marched in washington, d.c. yesterday to protest that program and demand a limit to the surveillance. germany and brazil are pushing for resolution from the u.n. general assembly calling for right to privacy on the internet. a draft could be circulated later this week. i talked to al jazeera's national security advisory faisa patel. >> there is embarrassment right now, the socialist government is way, way down in the polls. so the notion that the french government has no control over its destiny that it can't protect itself even against american spying doesn't play well with the elect ral rat. >> faisa do they have a right to be outraged? >> i think so. you have to put this in the
11:34 pm
context of, parting of ways between europe and the united states, the drone issue being another one just last week, in the u.n. general assembly, there was a big debate about drones and there you had many european countries joining with third world countries to express concern about drones. i think there's also this general sense that maybe the americans have just gone too far in their quest for security and i think that's also part of the equation here. >> but when it comes to the spying how does that rank on the evils of the united states? l. >> well, remember these countries many of them also have this history of spying. communist east germany for example where angela merkel comes from, the stasi kept records on many of them and persecuted paws of spying. there is suspicion on spying
11:35 pm
does it rank high enough to torpedo a trade deal? i don't know about that. >> i want to get your reaction from certain sunday talk shows, from a democratic senator who is against this program. let's listen in real quickly. >> i think the revelations from snowden and the screght secretst have been revealed are doing significant damage to our bilateral relationships with germany, with mexico, with the other countries where the suggestion is that we've listened in. so i think we have repair work to do and i think we have hard questions we need to ask about the nsa about what's really happening in this program. >> the reality is the nsa has saved thousands of lives not just the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. and you know the french are some ones to talk.
11:36 pm
the fact is they've carried out spying operations against united states, as far as germany that's where the hamburg plot began that led to 9/11. we're not doing it for fun of it. >> rick is there not some value to the surveillance? >> i think there's a vast exaggeration particularly from representative king. there is an obsession with gadgetry and technology in the united states which has lowered and damaged the notion of human intelligence and analysis. in other words, there's less and less emphasis in this country on actually learning something about other countries and about way other people think and interviewing other people and more and more obsession of gadgetry and accumulation of raw data. it doesn't stop terrorism. >> they pick up everybody's data
11:37 pm
so they are not focused on particular individuals. obviously you know you do use intelligence. we've always used intelligence methods locally and abroad. but the question is whether you can target everybody, rather than just those you suspect. >> so let me ask you about president obama's image here frankly as we come out of this. he walked out of office, insisting he would repair allies since the bush administration. do you think he's making a bigger mess? >> i think he's got an incompetent state department and an incompetent secretary of state, whatever your point of view was whether we should or should not hit syria them being wrong footed by a reporter and then being set up by putin, who now parades himself as the peace maker and the defender of civil liberties, there is something that doesn't work here, i mean it's absurd. that to me speaks of
11:38 pm
incompetence on the part of the obama administration. i don't think they've thought these things through. i don't think he thinks through what he says before he says it. >> you mean the president? >> the president. his famous speech in cairo where he spoke for kind of an opening up of arab societies and so on. don't forget that he stopped in rihd just before he god to cairo and reaffirmed his connection with the most oligarchic administration in the middle east. >> kevin scott sutay was handed over to u.n. officials in good condition. he was kidnapped while vacationing in june. reporting on the negotiations of his release. >> negotiations had been underway since june actually when he was exurpd by th capturq
11:39 pm
in colombia. it didn't happen because of the frac and colombian rebels. they had asked for the mediation, a very well-known figures. among them u.s. human rights activists the reverend jesse jackson. but the president of colombia made it clear that he didn't want to turn the release into a media spectacle for the farc. this has been in the works for a long time. >> do we have any idea allesandro why this former marine on vacation in colombia was able to be picked up by this group? >> he was a veteran of the war
11:40 pm
in afghanistan and after being discharged he went on a very long trip. he was trekking through many countries in central and south america until he arrived in an area close to the amazon on the border with venezuela here in colombia. that is a conflict region known to be adrug corridor and many local authorities and other people he met on his journey told him many times from what we know from the local news here to actually leave that area. so finally he got caught by the farc and they thought he was a mercenary. but about a month ago they published an article sayings was a regular backpacking american. >> all the prisoners have served at least 19 years their namings will not be revealed until 48
11:41 pm
hours before they are freed. in an apparent effort to avoid far right reaction. argentina was a disappointment for the president. lost seats to the opposition and many see this race as a barometer of the 2015 presidential election. if the opposition continues to gain steam the current president's family could be out of power for the first time in a decade. >> looks pretty clear now that there's no chance at all that president christina kirchner could make it possible to run for a third term. that is absolutely out. now the power struggle begins, the inner fighting within the dominant party. that's what we're seeing.
11:42 pm
at the moment the president's party is celebrating trying to put on a brave face. the vice president a few minutes ago, congratulated, those who had done so well, those who hadn't done so well, the ruling party is still the largest party, it still has not lost control of the lower house or the senate, yet it would be very difficult for president christina kirchner to govern. looks like her chief of staff who did very, very well in the province of buenos aires, may be a presidential hopeful two years from now. that's certainly what people are saying. >> video has emerged which seems to show a former egyptian soldier attempting to assassinate a minister. a white suv there driving up to the interior minister's home and
11:43 pm
exploding. you can see a man wearing an army uniform. former army officer was behind that attack. the former minister survived but one other was killed and 20 others hurt. gaining access to their ports, that's according to the sunday times. move comes as russia tries to take advantage of the recent rift between the united states and cairo. the united states suspended military aid to egypt earlier this month. you may think that sand is a rare thing to be in short supply in parts of india. as niddy duct reports, sand mining is causing big problems. >> remember the days when the waves broke out way out in the distance. today during high tide or the
11:44 pm
annual monsoon, he says the sea reaches the front steps of his house. the indian government build this wall. it hasn't stopped the problem. >> translator: they mine this beach from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. when no one is watching, and loaded and taken away. >> sand mining started small here but in recent years it's become a lucrative business. people say that less than ten years ago, the shore on the side was wide as a football field but there's not much left of it now and the sea water is mixing with the fresh water river on this side of the bank. this community trade is also damaging land and livelihoods away from the sea.
11:45 pm
yalipi's family has owned and farmed this fertile river bank for the past two centuries but over the last three years illegal sand mining has caused landslides that washed away 10 meters of his property. >> the sand mafia is running the street. we can't fight against them. the school and houses on other bank are also under threat. >> reporter: 44 rivers and tributaries flow through the province of karala. karala uses by the year 2020 four times as much. en environmentalists are warn that sand mining poses a threat. >> what they are going now in
