6:01 am
a very warm welcome to this is r.t. live from moscow and alice had it russia has solved the case of the terrorist attack committed moscow's domodedovo airport last monday the investigators that will reveal the details into monday's suicide bomb blast the attack on the capital's busiest international airport left thirty five people dead more than one hundred still remain in hospital president to meet them a dead of his call for a march tough approach to tackling terrorism in an interview to bring back he said russian should stand closer together in the face of danger. to consider the situation only consolidating all public forces to weave languishes evil we have no right to get hysterical about terrorism and spread out through this we make terrorism stronger look at the way america. came together the events of nine eleven
6:02 am
even those who are not very fond of president bush said which years he's got to be that he's got to be tough he's got to be the same country that serious way we can defeat terrorism. and you can watch that full interview of president meet the vetiver bloomberg on our web site r.t. dot com and later on we'll be crossing a live but to our correspondent at bennett for more on this case little bit later this hour seduced eighteen fasc for the latest on this breaking story now russian lawmakers have drawn up a draft or to step our plan to terrorism measures in the country similar to the american system any warning of an impending attack will be assessed all three level color scale with red alert being the highest but an intelligence expert from the u.s. says airports will always be potential targets for terrorists no matter how well security services do their job. what you'll have is
6:03 am
a process and procedure that the russian authorities will be able to implement and in essence move their security systems and to heighten alerts predicated upon the threat when you look at any airport around the world there is that vulnerability and in essence it's with a soft target set like that it's extraordinarily difficult to protect those areas but boils down to very good human intelligence on very specific terrorist plots the problem is most intelligence services lack that granularity on any specific threat whenever a terrorist attack occurs anywhere in the world every intelligence service scrambles to look at those events because an essence were all in the in the game here and there's always tremendous lessons learned and take away from that but public transportation and specifically air travel is always going to be in the gun
6:04 am
sights of the terrorist organizations and web with nouri health and the residental people in the big apple how do we challenge terrorism and whether we have an on how to stop it. the suicide bomber in moscow the car bomb in iraq the shootings in tucson considering the recent spate of violent acts around the globe are we doing enough to prevent terrorism this week let's talk about that i think we could be keeping lines of communication open and i think we can be trying to consider other people's perspectives i think we can be thinking more about policy and less about rhetoric are you willing to do more for if it meant the world was going to be protected more like strip searched at airports if necessary and i wanted to be searchers. i think the new machine i have is fine sees through clothes you're ok with that ok do you
6:05 am
think the scanners are ok if it means we're safe yes your calls are coming off a nobody stacia do you think it's ever justifiable old you think anyone ever has a good enough reason to get that angry to do something like that no no i think those. there's over say something vulgar wrong with them to thank about we that it is it is a good thing to kill people and kill themselves illinois no but what if you were being enslaved and you felt like you had no way out when you feel like violence would be an option then. not for other people to suffer no you have to go to these people you can't obviously it's horrible what happens but these people that's what they're trying to get they're trying to get the reaction he can't let them have that kind of power over society and be scared all the time so if the media turns it down a little bit of the coverage it will have an impact on it make them consider whether
6:06 am
or not they're going to do it i think so whether or not you think we're doing enough to end terrorism the bottom line is with all the recent violence clearly we have yet to succeed. now the u.s. government had been planning to topple the egyptian president for the past three years that's according to diplomatic cables released spy wiki leaks the fall so washington has been secretly backing leading figures behind rising or push at least fifty people have died and hundreds more were injured in a she want demonstrations since tuesday protesters have returned to kyrie central square this morning reiterating calls of president hosni mubarak to step down as the president dismissed his government but refused to quit unrest in egypt comes weeks after months of chaos and this year a seat at the president being toppled before fleeing into exile investigative
6:07 am
journalist webster tarpley told r.t. washington wants to put new leaders in power in the arab world to follow the u.s. agenda. think what we have obviously is there is the cia no doubt about it they are playing the card of mob rule the technical term is our clock or c across the entire arab world it looks to me like a vagabond quote it's a double or nothing strategy they seem to be shooting the works for destabilisation mubarak is not dependent enough he's not dependent enough on nato he's not dependent enough on the i.m.f. above all they're looking for some kind of gerrick regimes that could be played against iran or for other of their purposes they're also trying to appeal to this generation of young media list across the arab world whose imaginations have been captured by a sign you know underneath that there were real grievances before price the gasoline price the unemployment but those really have more to do with the wall street depression than with somebody like mubarak then of course there is the
6:08 am
question of political oppression and repression which has been going on in egypt look at the weakness of the u.s. the u.s. could not determine the government in iraq even though the u.s. is occupying the country they wanted allow we they got more leaky the pro. in lebanon the us has tremendous influence right that's another country that's heavily dependent in this case the the new government is more controlled by hezbollah than by the united states so it would seem to me now that we're going to find out soon enough whether the weakness of the u.s. has reached such a point that they can no longer overthrow a government like egypt and of course in iran in june and july of two thousand and nine there was an attempt to have the twitter revolution yet another color revolution that one failed similarly in lebanon whenever you're dealing with a with a well organized force that opposes the color revolution the cia people power coup has a very very hard time and succeeding if the army and the police continue to support
6:09 am
mubarak and the internet stays turned off then it looks to me like the the smart bet is probably that this is not going to be a cakewalk for these demonstrators and the other question of course is what's their program do they have any solutions or anything their solution seems to be down with mubarak some people would say that if the muslim brotherhood gets the upper hand the army might step in some people in the in the demonstrations seem to want the army to take over but that would simply be a new mubarak. investigative journalism of the tome talking it's. disappointment and lack of trust in the media have some americans turning to alternative full things phonies they claim big corporations are pushing their interests all into the public realm of in fact. their talk and i went to find out who's behind the information being broadcast in the us. everyone seems to know that he who pays the piper gets to call the tune. in the us
6:10 am
paying the piper and running the show are corporations that you may call what americans see hear and read it's a money maker it's a cash cow people don't think that that there's any money in the media i mean aside from health care these days there's probably the media is the industry of the twenty first century half a century ago fifty corporations rammed a major networks and newspapers since then a rapid concentration of media ownership has resulted in the near media monopoly spearheaded by a lucky few pumping money from the news cash cow and piping corporate interests to the viewers and readers the danger of this kind of media concentration is that it robs democracy of diversity it robs viewers from being exposed to a wider range of views. analysts say the u.s. is living in the golden age of media bias. it's never been easier for them to find
6:11 am
out exactly who's behind what where the conflicts of interest are topping the list of owners of rupert murdoch and his empire the news corp you have been a global media enterprise may if you shake that agenda at all no i don't think so i mean. murdoch stands over fox news channel the wall street journal and the new york post the fox channel is definitely seen as the most partisan and the. most focused on advancing a particular political party and a political interest so is this because of rupert murdoch's personal interests definitely there's no doubt about it. general electric one of the largest military contractors for the u.s. government plus comcast one of america's largest cable providers are joined by the hip running the n.b.c. network the floor of the hudson river is covered with carcinogenic p c b s these toxic janick dangerous chemicals that were put there by general electric general

6:13 am
journalism is bad business broadcaster laura flanders says counting on getting facts from the corporate media is simply naive because be reliant on military contractors gee to bring us news about the war any more than we can be reliant upon television networks that are run by disney to bring us the truth about what's happening in our economy media are increasingly monopolized the number of voices interested in bringing their viewers a little something. called truth has decreased as a result instead of representing journalism the media have become louder mouthpiece for the corporation if that's the truth get out archie york. will because all of dallas in the media more americans are turning to the internet and all those hundreds of news sources to find out the truth but radio host alex jones says the world wide web is in danger of becoming manipulated by big business. another issue

6:25 am
economic forum they have their own global leadership program that we're closely for operating with and they will be coming to moscow in april a very big delegation and i think this further on the lines the interest in russia and sort of the general tone that has been set by the president so overall this has been you know very good for the school in terms of visibility in terms of the feedback path in terms of what we're doing and i think you know overall i'm very happy because it's feels like we're on the right track have perceptions of russia as a whole changed. i think people you know changing perceptions takes time i think people came with different perceptions and with the speech by let's say death and then you got to fall off that the presence of a very strong russian delegation. and you know talking about openness that this is a new reality we want to bring in investments and you just mentioned some of the
6:26 am
important deals that were announced people are questioning them such as and say ok wait a minute this may be disses a change and i think it's an enormous opportunity for russia to really build up this one speech two speeches a couple of people coming to the horses is not going to do it right this is not enough in itself but i think in terms of you know the project the skolkovo project that we're bringing the president's agenda. you know what the business community is going in terms of investment you know the way the politicians are talking about openness and so on i think it's very encouraging and i also find that the reaction is you know we're sort of very positive that. you know the way the open this was announced and the way deals were on ours was done in a very sort of the for human direct way to move the words turn to reality will russia become briefly high tech economy and went. well in many ways russia's already high tech economy right i mean in certain sectors and i'd see if we can to
6:27 am
look at the space program and so on so as to be realistic there on other areas it might take a little bit more time so you know when we talk about that in a graph project you need to go more into the area environment so that russia could really diversify its industrial base we're running out of it i can do the hardware the software will take a little bit more time but i think we're off on a very good start just a word on the organization have you been a bit surprised by the rough heavy handed this. not to really i mean we're living in an interesting world the mom of the pop it's what security i did not go to the session but many people that run through the session on security and terrorism said they were just scared like hell and i think you know given what happened in moscow or if we're in the week and so on the and i can well understand that they are sort of you know you know going a bit overboard on the security side all right we're going after. brush it out for them afraid that's all we've got time for school for van halakhah really echoing the sentiments among american european worldwide business of the positive sentiment
6:28 am
of twenty eleven this year all right daniel thank you very much our correspondent daniel bushell talking to wolf about on a the dean of the school of a school of management i'm afraid this is where we have to end here go back to alice for the latest information on the investigation of the blast in moscow as the man had a bit bored. ok as dean was saying that's across the top story now russian investigators do say that the case of monday's suicide bomb attack and moscow's adama day that the airport has now been solved let's get the latest on this from i see either ben it seems in the russian capital for us either so what details do we know at this time we just in the last hour or so we've heard this statement from a lot of the market the head of the best to get the committee for the attack on monday. airports he said that the case has been so we don't know any more details other than that he said more details will be released over the course of this afternoon but what this could mean is that they've now found who is responsible the
6:29 am
attack or even better perhaps they found the perpetrators because until now we haven't heard any point from the authorities on who they suspect was behind this nor we heard any claims of responsibility as the investigation until now has been kept very quiet very harsh harsh here earlier in the week from some officials that they had dozens of suspects then later in the week surname was released rushed to put go of a russian man in this in the stairwell region believed to be connected in some way to the attack but all we've heard now is that the case has been so we don't know any more than that this is obviously very welcome news to the hundred plus people injured in the attack on monday don't live there and of course to the victims and friends and relatives of the thirty five people who died from say the investigation has been. being carried out quietly but what have the country's top officials been saying and doing in the wake of that monday's.
