4:02 am
freedom of movement he may have been seen since he made the announcement in riyadh but the prime minister hasn't made any more statements lebanon's president michel aoun believes how he is under house arrest he told saudi arabia the fear in beirut . that the circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how d.d. should return immediately. how does own political party made a similar to mt they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon's sunday community could be marginalized even further. and franchise and disappoint by. controlling their government and controlling their destiny on the other hand today they are concerned about. how do you deal. so this is why yesterday there are two. how do you really should be
4:03 am
a priority lebanon is a deeply divided country there is a pro saudi camp led by her which has long accused has been law of imposing iran's agenda here there is a pro iran camp led by hezbollah which has long resisted demands to disarm and to withdraw its troops fighting alongside the syrian government but even has below has added its voice to demands for had to return reiterating the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will when i do not. and we all the lebanese take this as an affront and any offense to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political a verse or a hezbollah secretary general has on the struggle was careful to avoid political escalation instead he accused saudi arabia of wanting to impose a new leadership in lebanon and start a war he called on the lebanese to avoid provocation and to stay away from the
4:04 am
streets the political divide hasn't gone away but for now at least politicians are putting it aside there is a rare consensus for the need to unite at what many describe as dangerous times. beirut. there are reports that authorities in papa new guinea have started to remove makeshift shelters at the man asylum detention center the un's called honest papa new guinea to use restraint and sternly i had been using the center to hold asylum seekers but it was closed ten days ago power and water have been turned off but hundreds of men remain barricaded inside. syria and children in eastern facing acute malnutrition as government forces continue bombing the rebel held area near damascus doctors say medical supplies are running out and the un is warning that the region faces a complete catastrophe the four hundred thousand civilians living in eastern go to have been under siege by the syrian government since september seven thousand people who suffered torture and abuse under the rule of chad's former dictator he
4:05 am
said a father a human rights complaint against the government alon mock trial and twenty fifteen had awarded one hundred twenty five million dollars for the victims in reparations but they say the government so far failed to comply those are the headlines the news continues on al-jazeera after digital dissidents. you know who was the warning person in the n.s.a. who did what he absolutely should have done. being a patriot doesn't need you know obedience to authority. putting aside your obligations to your people to your country for the benefit of
4:06 am
your government because the office he creates is not. so but she thinks and feels very concretely. string accurate documentation how the u.s. is i mean records shows that it was involved in one way or another in the deaths of more than one hundred twenty thousand people in iraq and afghanistan between two thousand and four and two thousand and ten. and the u.s. government's response is maybe hypothetically as a result of this release of this material some afghan family or u.s. soldier. could face risks. we will likely. face is the cost in human lives on tomorrow's battlefield or in in some in some some place where we will put our our military forces other any result as if they are forced to admit to us here on the earth that a single person had been as a result of well. if you like all the rights for
4:07 am
a moment you lost them for a lifetime and that's why this matters is because it happened and we didn't know what we were told. for some people there superheroes for others simply traitors whistleblowers like daniel ellsberg thomas drake william binney and edward snowden. hackers and i. activists like the wiki leaks founder julian assange and the former british secret service agent an emotional they want to the complete surveillance of our society they oppose intelligence agencies governments and corporations and for this they are threatened hounded and imprisoned. why are they so committed what drives them.
4:08 am
the intelligence services are not the only ones monitoring communications and processing massive data. also private corporations like google amazon facebook and apple collect millions of pieces of information about us to analyze and monetize. the smartphone sacked that. since there was stuff this i don't know and it's just there are no india chaff in the slick not a pseudo stuff to thank us and let us all skip it and to be honest. we don't really know what exactly happens with our own digital trails our data is transferred invisibly to huge data centers. sublimating into
4:09 am
a complex new identity creating our digital self. to get a lot of votes linked to smith fish that's the sky near the high human endeavor to spread megan. so many of then thought into this you see if you do that often this isn't just stuck in with. the if you know it's off. it's not one for who finished imma be so much money that is close to an estimate it is against us but it's an awful and he shot the scene everyone gets smarter because of this technology because it's free or very inexpensive and the empowerment of people is the secret to technological progress. we are all participating in this enormous transition where billions of people are joining our party right
4:10 am
joining our fun and joining our anxiety. the misaligned of who to michelle what i need to balance fun indeed i don't doubt that shots i modify had always started noir put looked at some of them given the new developments in machine intelligence will make us far far smarter as a result and this means everyone on the planet genetics revolution has a huge and positive impact on the way we treat disease progression disease and so with so on it's all basically because these smartphones are really super computers . and so on and a gun something a friend died as well you just telephone not just me or does this is who got him going to the men in need and i'm from no one's a smartphone into who was in touch i have it so i can get out and then it would g.p.s. nice man in love would be
4:11 am
a sin and has asked me how my angsty bunsen into i was in touch in the middle ones . with the advent of the smartphone we have become even more visible. so. it's not just i phones that i was laughing i mean most small phones all these days smartphones capture our communication behavior along when where and with whom we talk. apps collect data about our user behavior even our health data in addition many people use digital data storage like clouds carelessly handing over their information. are being intercepted analyzed and stored
4:12 am
automatically and that means that all of our fears or expressions are associated with who we talked to who me who. is the old internet saying goes if it's for free and you are the product because the use of all those convenient digital online services are only seemingly for free because we pay with our data. we have neither inside nor overview about our digital self and absolutely no possibility to actively control it. then put somebody stole online as a see have a command then. move his puts up a stand for vented about his full name is just dismissed so then you've got this bits of a stand you know it's an increasing v.h.f.
4:13 am
making the atom do not deserve it and he'd be at this is that supposed capital zone fit right in internet you can. just will blame us this is a few men get to some which have been on to date a brokerage firm the size consequently a frenzy it must be a stand on one field sit under a few mit. beating such highest and allow french bison to quit says and into account your spouse as mitt the hidden tuscans walked in z for i'm lost and for it was a one off young victim cowards. want us. so it's better than i was vietnam estimate you can watch fashion so owned by speed size of yet alpha it's like if you're off to buy my house for your own fun unlike you didn't think the last test the bin would see and you have fifty rushed us have been would soon come under hostile explicit seem to see feel like misunderstood because it's in this matter and i go it's most unprofessional so far than one vial even does it looks worse it gets old
4:14 am
i'm getting out too much and he kind of did to point out. the data we create assembling our digital self is also of interest is a juicy source of information for the intelligence community. so equipment is now being put placed on you asked networks infrastructure like trying to get restructure. tapping straight in enabled by critical partnerships the full extent of which have still been revealed to this day not even the snow disclosures eighteen t for aizen and a number of others but that's where it started with the phone companies ok it was it was rapidly expanded to include emails and all related information internet usage and all related from asian and financial transactions. the revelations by
4:15 am
edward snowden provide detailed insight into the relationship between intelligence services and private companies. telephone metadata and web browsing histories of great interest to the intelligence community. see that's really industrial relations. they were tapping the fiber lines between the google servers yeah. they didn't even know this is going on google to dot ok so i mean that's the point they can tap lines anywhere in the world and when they do that they can get it between the servers of any but any company. from my perspective i think there's been massive collusion between the big corporations and big government you know with the big spy agencies the military security complex they have agreements between them where they will pay money for data if they produce data for n.s.a.
4:16 am
or they will also pay for access and like for example the the room in the eighteenth the facility in san francisco that has the n.s.a. . it's the n.s.a. room that has the tappan on how they feed data and it's really a t.n.t. that has them maintain that room facebook is evil in my view have been saying is he is it's the spies we dream it does we'll for up information and it's just they want to play to the spies to access and we know they do through back doors and things and yet that's what i've taken weeks or months together going into vigil they extend what google of information to google has is nothing near what n.s.a. does for example they do not have they have access to the e-mails if it's they're using g.-mail for example but not all the other service providers and they don't so they don't have that data to do a composite view of what people are doing nor do they have access to all the fiber optic lines around the world nor do they see the banking transactions or the
4:17 am
financial transactions or all the phone calls they don't see that sort of vast amount of information that google does not have. so that's something that is leading to increasing concentrations of power and you get some smart people who think you're companies and then these cracks to the national security sector as contractors. so the crazy viber. see. market capitalism is what i'm concerned about. many of the companies concerned reacted immediately to the snowden revelations they proclaim and advertise seemingly tap proof mobile phones and
4:18 am
texting services followed by public announcements pleading that they will no longer put up with the pressure of the intelligence services. the way in which technology companies have reacted in the wake of the snowden. leaks means that the level of cooperation between technology companies and and intelligence agencies has gone down and that's that's that's added to the threat in some ways. it would be slightly bizarre if all the advances in technology in the use of bulk data analysis which are improving. the performance of business improving the health care. delivery and so on somehow national security was allowed to use it.
4:19 am
is not as if the more secure you get the less purpose you have all the more privacy you have the less security you have these you know in a free society like we were enjoying the west. your freedoms are guaranteed by security and so the job of western governments is to find the optimal levels of privacy and security supposed to maximize. as a consequence of the september eleventh attacks the technical capabilities of the intelligence services were massively expanded international collaboration of national spy organizations was also intensified. not always without friction and problems they have similar reigns like combating international terrorism we get the listen in on one another. after the nine eleven hit there was this perspective
4:20 am
that germany had had screwed up that the security services crude up that they had harbored terrorists. you have the cells and homburg. you have a number of the hijackers. transited through live there play in there. it was a significant cell there's no question about that and there's a whole history behind it and i think i think you know as i said i said this even publicly said this in terms of the testimony for the bundestag the germany within europe was declared. a target number one and i believe i believe. significant pressure but clearly out of the secret partnership and cooperation of the b. and d. and others was expanded and we know that now there's again more evidence has come out there was a special agreement this secret and expanded sharing agreement basically
4:21 am
gave the united states car blocks but also it was it was a b. and a you know not going to cooperate are going to help facilitate. this spring two thousand and fifteen a scandal erupts in germany regarding the close and secret collaboration between the german intelligence service be n.d. and the n.s.a. . the b. and d. cooperated with the n.s.a. to spy on european politicians and assisted the united states in attempts of industrial espionage. when the press reported that the chancellery had known about the scandal since two thousand and eight it peaked with the german opposition threatening to sue its own government over the b endianness a fair. use
4:22 am
victim. and now it's become this. marcus and sign. in and as a cause an opinion which dean and in and in but beautiful. from the indies and in these activities. just give us a mouse and i'm here to get opposite your wooden. globality beason barrett voted to move you here of a city a movie conjures item of protect invasion from fun toy chip. in with these and for being in a foothold. since two thousand and fourteen in an inquiry into the snowden revelations meets in the buddhist time for the first time i whistle blower from the usa reports to the parliamentary committee about the
4:23 am
n.s.a. and its into relations with the german d.n.d. . lean body confirm the very close relationship between the be indian the n.s.a. to the commission of. a relationship that already existed during his time in the us intelligence service. as even if i did manage to end this instance of the shooter claw films of the us and it was office it was called in those fancy media and then this in the field for
4:24 am
base of a hoax on deny him took this year. get all the alpha and this instruments to parliament house and control it and oftentimes to any clue to move into an outfit the better than often things to fit in file to see. the office and seem to see it so that if you can invite non-god nevadan to see hear stuff taught in any moth eaten things that i get in the meat on the if we can't get out and sit on the stuff it's a standing in parliament house to control agreements i mean from what i can see they had the same problem getting information from the bindy that the congress has from getting of getting information from the n.s.a. . it is the either won't tell them or they lie to them one of the other i mean that's what's been going on in the in the u.s. government the point is that now in our in our case we've been this snowden material has made it obvious that they've been lying to the government that's what intelligence agencies are that they are tossed to do things in secret that are
4:25 am
unlawful. or politically embarrassing you see intelligence agencies aren't aren't controllable unless they're really heavily monitored and there's a verification and unquestionable verification process they don't have that now that's the problem in our country too we do not have a an unfair unequivocal verification process that the agencies can't look can't can't corrupt. that we conclude this is team in the minds of the things that this bundestag parliament audition can go into leading is kicked out so and i can this community still going to parliament that is you can totally immune them into some talk when these talks are going to ongoing when i mean all governments seem to be in a position of having to trust their intelligence agencies telling them the truth and that is questionable nothing will happen in terms of any self-regulation. as organizations that are secretive to complex and to walk back to his house that
4:26 am
regulate. the german chancellor in the bundestag parliamentary control committee are officially responsible for the control of the b. and d. . only with a more comprehensive and effective control of the intelligence agencies can civil rights and privacy be properly protected. what other options are there to prevent abuse or possible illegal activities by the spies. often only intelligence insiders are left to go public reveal institutional violations and become whistleblowers get there's disparity between these individuals on the one side and the governments and intelligence services on the
4:27 am
other and so the whistleblowers and activists soon find out what happens when they challenge these organizations. as a world concern or maybe scott and be a good or not to legitimize or have to go home zoro me as us and good luck to get. this being bandied react to your own admission of being you were team whistleblower snowden fifty sonam ya king you but i didn't start and the un tried martin so your answer to answer is it's and. and for us to follow. they are to your own barrier give reasons snowden's and best suits are to tighten this up kind basically just out. get through to get out and buy a club our best estimate must see vincent you want for been given isn't very good. after his revelations in two thousand and thirteen edward snowden tried to flee from hong kong to south america via moscow but the u.s. revoked his passport he couldn't continue his journey from moscow and had to apply
4:28 am
for asylum in russia. started had been criticized about ending up in russia headed up in russia because the state department canceled his passport and so he couldn't fly a version i mean the incredible our goal why would they do that. that allows them to make the argument that he's working for russia and they can apply the nine hundred seventeen act why would they want to apply the nine hundred seventy because the nine hundred seventeen act carries with it the death penalty and they want to get in the death penalty the n.s.a. commission in the bundestag actually wanted to cause snowden as a witness many voices in the german public support the idea to grant edward snowden asylum in germany.
4:29 am
facing the realities your president said that there would be a complete audit a hundred percent audit that order hasn't happened getting to the heart of the matter so are you saying then that the future of the. hear the story. on talk to al-jazeera at this time. is quiet the signal is given. out so it's safe to walk to school last year there are more than thirty in this community in one month the police say this area is a red zone one of several in some townships. children sometimes court in the crossfire when rival gangs fight the parents and grandparents or what they call a walking us to try to take. the go. there are more than one hundred fifty volunteers working for several working buses

4:37 am
with these a few days up the back are now starting in busy typing julian didn't hear the finish but talking before it was as a new customer talking to start to take it to you know we can take i'm sticking hudson and taking this with you could open it in time so hard but you did it because she did in sweden proceed dismissing the second vice just as i just got on a scale of this is us in the me in dr. the sun she traveled to sweden in two thousand and ten for a series of lecture. their investigation proceedings into sexual misdemeanors against two swedish women were open. a son said he was being subjected to a smear campaign and refuted the allegations when interpol issued an arrest warrant for him he went underground within twenty twenty four hours it had been dropped in vain assessed by the most senior prosecutor in stock i mean if and i dropped and she said that there was no crime at all. that it think it. so later
4:38 am
on it came out in the supreme court here that both women are concerned i had not followed the complaint and that one of them had said that the police had made this up after a brief game of hide and seek a songe handed himself into the london police in december two thousand and ten and was remanded in custody released on bail with electronic ankle monitor a son fought in court against his extradition to sweden on a number of occasions. the walls were closing in both from the from the us side us it could be ready and from the. swedish side and from the u.k. . at the time. and june two thousand and twelve i had a lot of. surveillance and also casey had to queue as a lady came out was spying on us and the national security agency on the bus so.
4:39 am
there was a risk plane coming to the embassy to apply for asylum that that action would be seen and that i would be interdicted. but i was extremely well disguised well i i didn't look anything like i normally look. is it true that you have heard something of a week and still screw. this to the stunning the shoe is correct yes. the clothing everything was different and the reason you put this turn in your sure is to change your gait because their gait can be quite recognizable and that's not an issue if someone is to say new in the newspaper and that it is an issue for a surveillance team. since june two thousand and twelve the sun has been stranded at the ecuadorian embassy in london.
4:40 am
at that time i said well i'll be happy to go to sweden provided there's a guarnteed of. exhibition to united states because the london independent had already revealed that the us and sweden were in informal talks about expediting me from sweden if you will render do we call that rendering. you know that's what the one of the dark side activities that we've been doing. taking people up the street anywhere in the world and sending them to different places for torture or in prison.
4:41 am
escapees entrenched even in fog of a kind i lived in for they don't. stop to psych to hear these and snowden. and julian bizarreness and julian guns guns thought this. a man from god to the guys to them for vicky dixon julian cause. it's all lunch tifton some of us that's by two thousand and one for the kill expend this wasn't long before this critter i'm not a preview of this thing guns inside the glided. five thousand seen line that had me on i will spend can get off of the killings i know. doesn't to some kind of sponsors thousand mimeo you know once the stories over the journalists get off and break the stories they've made their careers and their suppliers that time try having first and i created with no hope of proper employment again. you know having left behind your whole way of life your social circle everything and in the case of intelligence the supply of course you face automatic prosecution and conviction to
4:42 am
so it's very high price to pay. well i mean a real threat came when the f.b.i. came into my house and when i was getting out of the shower and pointed a pistol at me. so i was getting out of the shower getting drowned dried off and they came in pip pointing a pistol at me and also my family so it was a threat and it was how to threaten people and then after that the department of justice attempted to fabricate evidence and and indict us i was very publicly indicted with a ten felony is a ten felony count indictment under the espionage act facing thirty five years in prison that was that was the final price you government or the inside the intelligence community there trumpeting these things they're holding these guys up it as examples to say look if you say what's going on you step on the line even if this even if you do it for the
4:43 am
right reasons even if you do it at the right point there will be a record caution you know they talk about internal channels and what not but these guys used in terms of analysts and they say people like thomas drake they ended up getting indicted and this is something that i paid very close attention and i learned a great deal from it was very rare in american history to get charged with espionage for non spy to vs in fact i was actually the only the second whistleblower charged a white man or the first was dana wells for when he went to the baltimore sun he did not reveal classified tricks you know they charged with classified but that was a hoax say there was a fraud they reclassified material that they found in his computer which was not conscious right and he had every reason to believe that he would not be prosecuted for what he gave to baltimore sun he would lose if john. he would lose his clear instructions very seriously as judge depended on parish in fact most of the judge
4:44 am
he should hear now would reporter clear. show he was taking a very serious risk but i don't if you risk if he thought he would be prosecuted i don't i was blacklisted i was president i grant i was radioactive no government agency would take me nor nor any contractor with the government it was off limits and at the same made it crystal clear even though there were attempts by even prior to my indictment to find work they were all they would all come to naught so i ended up as a wage rate employee appel one of the retail stores in the greater d.c. area where i still work but unable to find any other work at all of any kind that was the price you have no job you have no career you have no you have no pension all those years i served in the government i'm now a traitor and an enemy of the state. the
4:45 am
price thomas drake another whistle blowers pay for warning against the danger of a surveillance state is high loss of friends and family. flight into exile or long prison sentences under more stringent conditions. professional isolation and personal financial collapse.
4:46 am
this is we here is so mirrors. here you dish everything is organized everything is. just. how far we go on our efficiency. or race the sovereignty of individuals. i see how far an institution would go to raise freedom. for a person's life. and the only way we can do that is to control them every single
4:47 am
second of the day and measure it at the same time. i chose to vote myself inside the system. never imagining what i did. that i'd be charged with us or. for having defended the constitution protecting the constitution became a state crime. kak. a state crime. and we have the power. you don't. in the end all they had left to do was assassinate me. at the character level that's all they had left. assassinate. which is the oath in the form. of control right. it doesn't matter what even the crimes against the state work.
4:48 am
your unexceptable. you're not fit. to work in the government or see or be a citizen. yet you do not deserve prison. because you're the wrong guy. where we have that in history. that. you just described how the f.b.i. team interrogated me in a similar room and they played the good cop bad cop with themselves and they
4:49 am
brought the chief prosecutor and he threatened me with spending the rest of my life in prison unless i cooperated with their investigation and he said you better start talking and i simply said i'm not going to plea bargain the truth. he says we have more than other evidence to put you away for a long long time i was declared an enemy of the state i committed crimes against state. but i'm standing here free and i can't begin to tell you what it means because. so i'm thanking you for polina up the mirror to my own government ok it's all right because i'm free i did not end up in the dark hole. ok right. now i'm glad the west won in that regard and yet how paradoxical it is that the technology of the west is now being used to mass surveillance on
4:50 am
