8:07 am
an outrageous criminal act and then use the court proceedings later to advocate this around the world and in that sense. one might say that he has succeeded in that he himself has taken the stand yet that starts first tomorrow and there's been of course a lot of debate about that here in norway in to what extent he should be allowed to do that in the court case he has called an rumors that witnesses extremist witnesses both from the extremist right side and islamic extremists to sort of. build under this notion that he has that there is a war a clash of civilizations there's been a debate and some of the witnesses that been called and have actually refused to go in because they don't want to be part of this propaganda that he is using the court case to promote. because interested. in the proceedings we are streaming live

8:10 am
trying to determine the reasons behind this move while the other sand political prisoners still remain in prisons in behind bars in belarus and their fate remains pretty much unclear at the moment this also being a reaction from the european union from the highest representative and international affairs and security catherine ashton who said that releasing these two prisoners is definitely a right move to improve relations between brussels and me in scans she demanded that the old other political prisoners must be set free as well definitely the ties between brussels and minsk have been very much strange after the events and in december to wait on the presidential election and the crackdown on the opposition in fact all heads of all diplomatic missions to do the european union left immediately all twenty seven passengers then the european union imposed sanctions umbrella was namely more than two hundred state officials and businessmen are still brought here which is from traveling to the european union countries as well as

a lot of. the korean burnings you were eating one of the koreans massacre in here. not what you wish for so many grown twenty special forces just. because we're getting ready to be released and i don't think there's a chance i think america will want to do it because the one thing very. well the recent wreck where they reach in livio last year or even know whether it is fear and there is the possibility peace in syria you know the possibility of peace and stability. to violence instability. we want to know your view on what you expect to

8:15 am
a reality almost a decade ago unfortunately our leadership in the white house and in the state department have not caught up with that reality the new reality is it is not business as usual we are not buying loyalty but not even the egyptian military's loyalty may be enough to secure business as usual between washington and cairo the muslim brotherhood is the ruling power in egypt's parliament now and their candidate could well when presidential election in may the rather hood has declared israel america's closest ally in the region enemy number one we will not be able to afford and will put in jail for example lingers on the border there is a freezer but there's a lot acceptable by the egyptian people but most recently a delegation from the muslim brotherhood has made a trip to washington and flip flopped on some of their harsh statements this time
8:16 am
the brotherhood lawmakers said they were not planning on breaking the peace agreement with israel signed at the end of the nineteen seventies in light of the mixed messages that keep changing some wonder whether there is any guarantee that egyptian military power bolstered by u.s. taxpayer dollars and weapons. will mock one day be angered israel the fact that they have to send the go delegation to charm up washington shows you that what they are trying to hide is not very charming they're talking about american taxpayer dollars being used to fund what may well be a government in egypt which is vitriolically into america washington seems to be holding on to the old policy of offering egyptian leaders incentives in exchange for favors and well loyalty but will that model work with the new democratic egypt which may soon be ruled by those who capitalize on and he's really on the

anti-american rhetoric i'm going to check our reporting from washington r.t. . well he's used to exposing the world's dark is secret so it's no surprise top whistleblower julian sons wants to reveal even more of the growing dissidents and opinion makers in his interview show that debuts on our t.v. this tuesday but today's answering the questions about his not trying to separated program and his guest. has do with us our enemy combatant a traitor getting into bed with the kremlin. and interviewing. terrible radicals for. i think that's a sort of it's a pretty trivial car and. when you were choosing the guests what were your criteria. or the single biggest criterion something i would come up with. so those are. people who normally don't get
8:18 am
a voice could any of the guests that you have got do you think a pair on a mainstream t.v. network some good some couldn't but some have. quietly. what is fair game. majority of what they have said to me they could not say or the mainstream i think wouldn't work but it's not just because of self-censorship of the networks it's because my style of interaction as someone who has been interviewed by the media many different times i understand the faults. in that format and so i want to add something to. the sort of the situations that they had so why of. pulling out their story about this situation from b. i would suspect it would look there's something going. for me. and in dealing with me they understand that they're not just dealing with the hardest thing to do with

8:21 am
especially a trait that i think a lot of it is inertia and the fact that for a long time america has been writing as it is to fake and now it's not so used to the ideals conferring to other powers but i think that for the future of world peace i think in the future america will need to start negotiating we were trying to create a framework to share it if you could perceive it and it's trying to see. oh look at some other stories from around the world for you now for shiite muslim farmers have been shot dead just north of the iraqi capital in what appears to be a sectarian attack two carloads of gunmen opened fire while the better working in an orchard by lynch has decreased in iraq but sunni militants still launch attacks to challenge the country's shia led government. military leaders in the west african state of a guinea bissau now have announced a national transitional council meeting with political parties soldiers wrestle control from the nation's interim government four days ago over plans to reduce the
