election with just over 2 thirds of the votes counted its center left candidate for now and is facing the incumbent mary snow machree in a contest dominated by the economic crisis. bolivian president evo morales says political rivals are planning a coup in response to his reelection the opposition accuses morales of fraud after 2 counts were frozen. let's return to a top story of a book about does it may not sound been as well known to americans as a solid than lawton but his death by u.s. officials is considered a game changer in the war on terror say in a how to reports on how he became the leader overall of the world's most feared armed groups. it was july 2014 when the world got a glimpse of the man best known as abu bakar a bucket that he an iraqi whose real name is a brit hume a wide ibrahim. he walked out of the shadows to declare in islam it stayed in iraq
9:08 am
and the levant from the great mosque in the iraqi city of mosul he led friday prayers after naming himself caliph or religious leader it was a show of power by an armed group which took over much of iraq's sunni heartland after the iraqi army all but collapsed 5 years later it was back daddy's state that collapsed eisel once controlled $88000.00 square kilometers of territory stretching from western syria to eastern iraq it lost its last stronghold in syria in march this year weeks after the fact that he made his 1st appearance in 5 years putting to rest many unconfirmed reports of his death in a video the ice a leader wanted to show he was still in charge and along with his group survived the territorial defeat back that he was behind the group's creation and expansion eisel originated in al qaida in iraq back then he became its leader in 2010 he then
9:09 am
capitalized on the unrest in neighboring syria exploiting the security vacuum it started to capture territory and changed its name to islamic state in iraq and the levant before falling out with al qaida leader ayman al-zawahiri i see now the challenges al qaida not only in syria and iraq but for the leadership of what it calls the global jihad this struggle but that he was once a prisoner and a us run jail in iraq he is believed to have been born near the iraqi city of samarra in 1971 and said to have a ph d. and islamic studies from an iraqi university giving him religious credentials it isn't known what roll back that he played in recruiting arab and foreign fighters or in orchestrating attacks abroad there have been questions about his grip on power and reports of dissent within the group's leadership but the man who declared himself caliph the would be successor. the prophet managed to elude death and
9:10 am
capture for years and even though i still state in syria iraq crumbled under his rule the group's goals are not defined by borders or one man its appeal comes from harnessing the grievances of some new muslims in iraq syria and across the world sen. well the group may not control much of iraq and syria anymore but it still maintains a covert network of supporters counter terrorism officials briefed the un security council in august stand revealed that the group has affiliates stretching from of ghana stand in south asia to nigeria and west africa which is considered to be its strongest affiliates with more than 4000 fighters of the 40000 foreign fighters who join deisel along with their families up to $30000.00 of them survived the u.s. led campaign to topple the group and i still remains very rich with around $300000000.00 at its disposal according to some estimates wellstone may have been
9:11 am
as a senior lecturer in international relations at lancaster university he says eisel supporters may use bank debt is death to strengthen their coals. so i think it's a tricky one because while the tentacles certainly spread out across the world and into disenfranchised marginalized communities this is not a an organization that exist top down control over everything it's not as if but that he was was a figure sitting in a. cave or an area or somewhere controlling every single thing that happened in the name of all groups and for the diet so it's a little bit more complicated not it means that all these groups that are operating across the world are inspired by and influence by and as a consequence i think that what's happened is that there will be a outrage there will be for stray sharon and the anger at the american actions and
9:12 am
it will serve to reinforce what what many had being and un done the case that the struggle is against this western imperial power now of course it's a symbolic acts the killing of all but that is hugely symbolic and significant but that will be countered by the key ideologues who will be trying to trying to make the case that this is moral justification that they are on the right truck and that that cause is just at least 70 percent says have been injured in the iraqi city of karbala as they tried to storm a government compound security forces fired live ammunition and tear gas in an attempt to stop the demonstrates is setting fire to the provincial council building but this comes as the iraqi high commission for human rights says $74.00 pretenses have been killed more than $3000.00 injured during 3 days of anti-government

9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program has i'm seeking he was one of the world's most wanted men a prized target for years the u.s. president says will back in baghdad the leader of one of the most feared on groups eisel has been hunted down in northwest syria donald trump says he killed himself with explosives during a raid by u.s. special forces about that he once ruled an area in syria and iraq the size of the united kingdom under his watch the islamist state of iraq in the event became one of the most brutal armed groups in modern history carrying out mass killings beheadings and write campaigns here's what u.s. president told tom had to say last night the united states brought the world's number one terrorist leader to justice abu a car al baghdadi is dead he was the founder and leader of isis the most ruthless and violent target is ation anywhere in the world the united states has been searching for baghdadi for many years capturing or
9:23 am
killing baghdad he has been the top national security priority of my administration u.s. special operations forces executed a dangerous and daring nighttime raid in northwestern syria and accomplished. their mission in grand style the u.s. personnel were incredible i got to watch much of it he died after running into a dead end tunnel whimpering and crying and screaming all the way the compound had been cleared by this time with people either surrendering or being shot and killed 11 young children were moved out of the house and are uninjured he reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down
9:24 am
he ignited his vest killing himself and the 3 children his body was mutilated by the blast the tunnel had caved in on it in addition but test results gave certain immediate and totally positive identification it was him then a honda has more now on how bad that he became isolated. it was july 2014 when the world got a glimpse of the man best known as abu bakar a bucket that he and iraqi whose real name is abraham a wide ibrahim. he walked out of the shadows to declare in islam it stayed in iraq and the levant from the great mosque in the iraqi city of mosul he led friday prayers after naming himself caliph or religious leader it was a show of power by an armed group which took over much of iraq's sunni heartland
9:25 am
after the iraqi army all but collapsed 5 years later it was back daddy's state that collapsed eisel once controlled $88000.00 square kilometers of territory stretching from western syria to eastern iraq it lost its last stronghold in syria in march this year weeks after back that he made his 1st appearance in 5 years putting to rest many unconfirmed reports of his death in a video the ice a leader wanted to show he was still in charge and along with his group survived the territorial defeat back that he was behind the group's creation and expansion eisel originated in al qaida in iraq back then he became its leader in 2010 he then capitalized on the unrest in neighboring syria exploiting the security vacuum it started to capture territory and changed its name to islamic state in iraq and the levant before falling out with al qaeda leader ayman al-zawahiri i see now
9:26 am
challenges al qaida not only in syria and iraq but for the leadership of what it calls the global jihad this struggle but that he was once a prisoner in a us run jail in iraq he is believed to have been born near the iraqi city of samarra in 1981 and said to have a ph d. and islamic studies from an iraqi university giving him religious credentials it isn't known what role baghdadi played in recruiting arab and foreign fighters or. orchestrating attacks abroad there have been questions about his grip on power and reports of dissent within the group's leadership but the man who declared himself caliph the would be successor of the prophet managed to elude death and capture for years and even though i still state in syria iraq crumbled under his rule the group's goals are not defined by borders or one man its appeal comes from harnessing the grievances of suddenly muslims in iraq syria and across the world
9:27 am
sen. all right well let's introduce our pound out of talk more about this here in doha we have andrea's cregan assistant professor at the defense studies department king's college london joining us from a deal in the couldst on region of iraq is here what's mine who is an iraqi political analyst and via skype from lose in the u.s. state of delaware lawrence korb a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense welcome all of you so let me let me start with you then how significant is this in terms of the fight the larger fight against isis i think it is mostly of symbolic importance here for specially for the organization and i've said for years that this organization has become somewhat of a virtual caliphate it's become a franchise that other groups can buy into and then basically sell around the world and it was not a color it was a callous of a cyber caliphate if you will without
9:28 am
a caliph and i think killing these so-called self-proclaimed caliph today doesn't really make any difference in that because the different groups that have existed and continue to exist after the collapse of the physical caliphate will continue and are continuing to fight anyway in the underground in syria in iraq but also in afghanistan in the in sub-saharan africa and elsewhere so this this title of being isis is up for grabs and it's a virtual community that is very much leaderless and has been leaderless. who are smart what's your view on this does does the killing of one leader one man matter and in the 3rd the larger scheme of things. well look at their track record the track record of these radical groups these terrorist groups the winds of power we for example was killed the group was very quick to appoint another person to be in charge when osama bin laden was killed the group there was also very quick to
9:29 am
appoint someone else in charge in his place i think we will hear the same thing from from isis that they will appoint somebody else it deals a major blow to their organization i think but it will not affect the status of it is of the cyber caliphate as. as the guest in doha described i think he's accurate it is become a franchise people subscribe to it and they they carry conduct attacks and they carry out activities in the name of that terror group specially now in iraq and in syria mostly with the. with the presence of turkish troops inside northeast syria the area that was controlled by the as the f. as staunch enemy of isis we saw how the turkish troops came in with their city and proxies who were very much similar to to the isis to members of feiss so
9:30 am
the ecosystem i think is now there after the end of the guy and so-called victory in this area is i think too far for isis to reemerge again or for another leader or for isis to continue whatever it was trying to do in the past i think the killing of a baghdadi is killing of one man defeating isis doesn't happen by killing the leader only it happens by by changing the ecosystem for or for that kind of terror group with the presence of the turkish army in this area as we saw when he was very close to the takers borders from. that's we are hearing american officials and the extra the president did not even tell turkey so the defeats of of the as the f. or taking out the initiative from the hands of the as the f. in the war against isis will create a much better circumstances for that group to to be
9:31 am
a mess and to flourish once again according to what the what we've been hearing from their websites and from their literature so let's get a view from the united states then and lawrence korb it was president trump who announced this from the white house and comparisons will inevitably be drawn with the announcement of the killing of osama bin laden by his predecessor president obama or a few years ago and this will be seen at least in the short term as as kind of a a win for president trump given the deed the challenges that he's facing domestically but beyond that what's what effect does it have well i think it is as you point out a big win for president trump because not only did he get the leader of isis which will be one some of the criticisms he's gotten warmer are withdrawing from syria and not supporting the syrian democratic forces the other is that he worked with
9:32 am
the turks the syrian democratic forces the russians and the iraqis on this so this helps his image of somebody who you know we're working on together. i agree with the other the good it just has got may have some problems but in the long term unless you undermine the idiology of these groups and what they're trying to accomplish you're not going to do eliminate the threat we had already destroyed the conflict they basically had gone underground and i think they will still try and plot attacks wherever that they feel that they can whether it's in the middle east or in europe or even in the united states and as we saw after we got that a lot and there was a temporary lull but it came back and look at all of the taliban leaders we've killed in afghanistan but you know we still haven't eliminated the well what about the security implications of this law is called in terms of a hit of the loss of
9:33 am
a bet that he is a leader. what tactically does it do for i saw in terms of his his connections his net was and and so on will have much effect in that respect. well in the short term it will be because i think a lot of people who might be attracted to whom are going to say will do they have intelligence so i'm asked will they be able to call you know after us because even though the united states is taking its ground troops out of syria are still going to have its air troops and you know we've been bombing several of the facilities are in that part of the art northwestern northeast of syria where we thought that they may have headquarters of these various groups so i think it'll get them to go underground for a while until they can see what the situation it is in in in syria and the other
9:34 am
thing i think it is important keep in mind the iraqis played a big role in the mist and they're still grateful for the fact that we came in and helped them after they lost mosul they were the ones who provided the intelligence that they got he was actually hiding in an area that was our controlled by our last rule which had been an enemy of our vices and yes let me let me turn back to you on this what do you what were the why was it so difficult to to to catch him for so long because there had been reports in the past that he had died in in various attacks and those turned out not to be true why why had he eluded. u.s. forces and others for so long well when he was actually this assess 5th death death actually if you look at all the proclamation that have been made over the years but you know the thing with him is he has not been sedentary for the entire time of the caliphate so even early on in 2014 when they had a physical space that they that they governed baghdad he wasn't someone who lived
9:35 am
in a particular house and stay there because he knew how very dangerous it would be a considering that obviously isis didn't really have an air force and the air power supply your team was with the entire world alliance against him so you know it was constantly moving any has been constantly moving so that he was now. found it lip after all doesn't really say it was in it for a longer period of time middle of his widely and ungoverned space neither the turks nor the regime nor the assad or the h.g.'s nobody really controls that area and he was freely able to freely move around most people thought he would still be in iraq but obviously despite the fact that the border was somewhere between iraq and syria was somewhat rebuild you know people are moving it's a transnational space where people move from east to west and he was constantly moving around so it was very difficult to pin him down because he had a very low profile i think trump's announcement to say that they captured quite a lot of interesting material relevant material is probably falls because i don't think he had quite a lot of stuff with amy he must have traveled very lightly and very flexibly here
9:36 am
are smart let me turn back to you. this i mean a lot of people have made mention of the fact. that the conditions that led to the rise of i saw haven't been addressed and that's something that really. needs needs further attention what's your view on that. yes indeed i meant since the when when isis came or controlled all these large areas there was a sectarian situation in iraq he in iraq as a whole the areas that were predominantly sunni we're controlled by the probe by a sectarian shiite army longing to them prime minister and proxies of iran at the time and still now after the liberation of these areas they are controlled by elements of hush the shabby or the popular mobilization forces that are known to be proxies of iran operating inside iraq and
9:37 am
a lot of the areas that are still that are freed from isis are not being controlled they still haven't seen development they still haven't seen reconstruction many areas that were destroyed that they haven't been rebuilt yet they will our lives the employed the large sunni population that's in these areas is still very much on the margins so even in terms of political representation there are so many issues which we are seeing now the uprising of the people in the center in the south of iraq. the sunni people of iraq are not rising for now because they have been accused in the past of belonging to isis or the baath regime or whatever or the baath party or other reasons by the by the government but now i think with the protests and the. the protests in baghdad and the south of iraq eventually the trouble could reach these areas and. they they could it could be
9:38 am
pave the ground for reemergence of isis or isis 2.0 or 2 or 3.0 now on the syrian side of things there yes to the that isis was very much in control of where being. ford they were being fought in these areas by the as the f. now with the american withdrawal from these areas with empowering the guy who is largely seen both in iraq and in syria as the patron of isis the isis was largely seen as the military wing of the a.k.p. at the guys party in turkey $40000.00 fighters according to brett mcgurk who was in charge of the war against isis in iraq and in syria said that they had come to isis areas to syria from turkey now with turkey in charge of the borders again with the s.d.f. being away from their borders we could see
9:39 am
a similar scenario of isis of the grounds are there for isis or isis to point or whatever else for for them to reemerge in the areas that they were. cleared of in the past with the coalition and there's the f. so this issue is that the conditions are now i think back to to where we started in that case law school what's your view on that what are the implications for i saw of turkey moving into these areas in northern syria now. well as has just been pointed out i think this is a good war i still because the turks all they're concerned about is the kurds they think that anybody who's a kurd regardless of whether they're part of the p.k. or not is a sworn enemy which is why they're trying to you know create the. zone on the border with syria the turks also want to send back all of the not just the syrians
9:40 am
who emigrated there many of them could end up joining the joining on isis because of their on happiness with what happened in turkey and what was happening in in syria so i think in the long term the turkish role there is going to be quite helpful love to isis and less air to wind completely changes his view or we have a new election in turkey so i think that we need to keep that in mind and not think that just because we've got that got a we can leave the area and we don't have to worry about isis anymore. and there is a lot of a lot of details about this raid that we don't know about at this time but i want to ask you because for 4 days the u.s. u.s. officials on the ground in fear that i saw would try to to capitalize on the up people in syria and the announcement of the withdrawal of u.s.
9:41 am
forces and but in that respect they saw a potential opportunity in which isolators would sort of come out. from there from their secretive routines and their and their tunnels and so on to communicate with each other and that that may have created the opportunity for u.s. forces to locate and baghdad and launch this attack you think there's some truth to that yes i mean we we saw a lot more activity going on even before the announcement of that rate last night i mean we saw that people were communicating there was a lot on twitter about new activities of people in their own obviously they have their own bubbles and echo chambers where they speak which as of which are mostly not public obviously and you know it was an out of it was something that they wanted to exploit and i do think that despite all this i think isis will exploit this very event as well particular narrative now is that he was blowing himself up
9:42 am
with a kind of a vague in capture and then and died as a martyr i think that will kind of reinforce the martyrdom narrative that isis has been so this could be a recruiting tool they would probably try to make it a recruiting tool and i think it's very important all trump in his speech was making a big daddy look quite weak almost like a wimp who was crying rather than someone who died a martyr's hero's death and i think it's very important i think the ice is out that's what obviously presented the other way around that he died a hero's death so i think it's very important that this doesn't become a narrative campaign because also for the trying to straighten this is a narrative campaign because trump is going run for reelection and i think that might be just his most important foreign policy achievement if you will in the region and he will capitalize on that and the 35 percent or so who are die hard trump fans will probably cheer for it and say look what he's done he actually he actually single handedly brought us to an end. here are smart speaking speaking of narrative a lot of governments in the west will be will be glad to hear this news of the isis
9:43 am
leader has has been killed but it's important to point out isn't it that it's people in the region arabs and muslims have been who've been bearing the brunt of what i saw has wrought for years now. well certainly people in the region especially the victims of faces and there are many of them and the and in syria and in iraq especially they will be very glad to receive the news because this man is responsible for all the misery for all the suffering that he created for for the people but again at the same time people especially in syria and in iraq are very worried that from might yet again change again change his mind with a tweet and change his policy and abandon the area totally and allow for another isis to to emerge and then they will they will be back with a vengeance the iraqi state has proven now to be extremely weak they are unable to
9:44 am
do to get through to overcome the difficulties that any. that they have been facing since 2003 be arena rejean is now helping the iraqi government to crush the protests in the south so it's a we have a very weak state in iraq and at the same and the weak government and we have a very fragile situation in syria with with really very and quite unknown variables in the under situations especially in the areas that i so was. was controlling as it's as as part of its caliphate now with turkey's role being there on the ground as the guest in d.c. said turkey really cares about more about the kurds than i so so they are the they consider the kurds as their enemy not not isis and with the kurds today not being
9:45 am
able to fight isis as before should the reimagined i think the prospects does doesn't look very very well for for the people of the ground. one final question then 2 to lois corbin briefly at the president has talked about ending what he calls endless wars in the middle east. will he look at this as as job done now. very definitely just like in 2012. the president obama campaigned on bin ladin. no doubt about it and in the short term this is a big win for him because most americans don't want to be involved they're very upset going back to the iraq the iraq war so no this is good and that's why he spent so much time on a sunday morning very rare that a president speaks you know on a sunday morning to the nation and questions after 2 all right we're going to have
