hello and welcome to r.t. twenty four hour news live from moscow my name is you tell my story now u.s. whistleblower edward snowden is free to live and work in russia for up to twelve months without fearing extradition the former n.s.a. contractor has been granted temporary asylum in the country meaning he finally left the moscow airport where he's been trapped in transit limbo since june. has been following the developments in this snowden saga. now that snowden has managed to leave the transit zone of settlement or to this is a whole new chapter in this story but if earlier we knew at least approximately where he was now his location is even more secret you would have to start with you to the fact that he's the most wanted person on planet earth to do he'll be concerned about the issue of security that includes questions of sci fi and the
police where he is going to loop that's all up to him has used lawyer will consult and advise him but on other issues it's up to him as for meeting the press yes he's ready to meet the russian media but you need to understand you still need some time to adapt to russian realities a lawyer on the personally accompanied snowden and so we could weeks representatives harrison alex of the airport and put them in a taxi initially it was expected that snowden was supposed to leave the airport last week but had to take time for all the necessary legal procedures that in a statement published on thursday snowden outlined how everything was done in full compliance with russian and international legislation the former n.s.a. contractor did agreed to the conditions voiced by president putin under which he could stay in russia and that is to stop farming washington's image and so while concerning his latest revelations he did pass all these documents to journalists
before he arrived to show he meets with board from there we know that snowden's looking possibly at finding a job here in russia nothing concrete at the moment but russia's largest social network has already made an offer to him as an eighty specialist in charge of the privacy and security of users. russia's granting of temporary asylum to edward snowden has infuriated washington that white house. summit between president obama and putin may now be canceled that has some republican senators called for a major reason think of relations between the two countries well she's going to gauge is the u.s. response. together with edward snowden russia has now become the object of washington's wrath fiery remarks are coming from congress senator lindsey graham says americans in washington should consider this a game changer in our relationship with russia senator john mccain goes it is
a slap in the face of all americans we cannot allow today's action by putin to stand without serious repr cautions the white house touched upon some of those are precautions saying moscow's decision on snowden undermines the growing cooperation between russian and u.s. security services the white house spokesperson said washington is quoted extremely disappointed with moscow also this mr snowden is not a whistleblower he is accused of leaking classified information and has been charged with three fairly villany counts and he should be returned to the united states polls show the majority of americans actually disagree with the white house on whether or not mr snowden is a whistleblower they think it is but it seems the white house and some lawmakers are only happy to focus on russia because it takes the thunder away from the conversation about the surveillance state but the conversation is happening as much as the government would want to be can't put a lid on it new laws are being proposed to rein in n.s.a. surveillance last week congress killed one such bill by only twelve votes lawmakers
have indicated there will be more such proposals in response to snowden's revelations senior intelligence officials have testified in congress releasing classified documents but they wouldn't be having that conversation if it weren't for snowden from snowden we first learned about the prism program a system the n.s.a. uses to gain access to the private communications of users of nine popular internet services the government said the n.s.a. does that only with a warrant from the faisel court those are secret court orders snowden said the fisa court merely rubber sems such warrants and he revealed one such secret court order for a telecommunications company to hand over its client's data in bulk the government has acknowledged all collection of communication. but said no one can look at the content of those communications without a warrant it's known and said yes they can this week the guardian relying on the documents that snowden had earlier provided has released details of a program that makes it possible we learned about x.
keyscore which allows to search through vast amounts of data collected by other programs having separate fires to score ear and his comfortable lifestyle it's not and said he wanted to expose the government lies in washington i'm going to shut down. so russia on its part says there's no reason why but it isn't over snowden's asylum should damage relations with the u.s. view shared by london based legal expert alexander america. the ball in a sense is in the american court the russian authorities have been extremely careful to do this by the book they've insisted on mr snowden making a problem. he's done it through a lawyer there is a well founded case here for asylum the u.s. has no legal grounds to object to this know that years in russia proper i think he the intention will be to apply for full refugee status if the u.s. number less wants to jeopardize its very important relationship with russia because
russia has done something which it is legally fully entitle to do that is a decision for the u.s. but many people would like the feel that if the u.s. does that then the u.s. frankly is behaving in a very strange and self destructive way. snowden's leaks continue to respond atlantic the latest revelations published by the guardian showed not only was britain's government communications have quarters spying extensively on u.k. citizens but it was receiving funds from washington to do so and let's now take a look at how those intelligence gathering programs works the ukase see. large amounts of money into efforts to gather personal data from mobile phones and obligations saying it wanted to be able to exploit any anywhere any time in the
past five years alone the amount of data gathered from the internet and mobile traffic by the intelligence agency has increased by more than seventy times she's pointed boyko takes a closer look at the us role in it. the u.s. government has paid at least one hundred million pounds to the u.k. spy agency over the past three years now in return for this money they've got access to and influence over britain's intelligence gathering programs now these were allegedly top secret payments the americans expect a return on their investments in g c h q so d.t.h. who has got to work very hard to meet the n.s.a.'s demands which almost makes it sound as though that the u.k. intelligence agency is working for the n.s.a. i mean for such a prestigious agency these revelations are likely to be extremely damaging one g c h q strategy briefing that the guardian has seen says to quote that g c h q must
pull its weight and be seen to pull its weight which gives you an impression of the sort of the work ethic in g c h q and the how hard they're trying to please the americans really the guardian seen other documents that reveal that d.c. h.q. is actively pouring money into spying on personal mobile phones and applications and according to the guardian some staff that work for d.c. h.q. have expressed concern about the more reality and about the ethics behind what it is they do they are given the level of deception in their work as well apparently a number of employees have been concerned about that now the leaked paypal's also show that the u.k.'s biggest fear is that the u.s. becomes dissatisfied with the work that d.c. h.q. is doing and as a result will invest less money into the u.k. spy agency which brings us to watch a number of observers are concerned most about in this story which is just how
close the relationship between g c h q and the n.s.a. really is certainly considering the amount of money that's been poured in and just to remind you that it's over one hundred million pounds over the past three years it would seem as though the british side is almost dependent on their american counterparts. still ahead for you here on our team this hour the syrian war affecting families in europe and the number of young leaving the easy going along side the seaward rebel soldiers we'll talk to a belgian mine this son join the jihad it's about just how he ended up in the was home country that shortly after the.
economic downturn the final. day the longer the new york and the rest because i would still be taking the lead if we. didn't take three. three. three. three. three. video for your media. free media our t.v. dot com. the love the best for the world we could show it. but you just showed it. to be real was a brick about it but those it was a stroke about.
this is he coming to live from moscow welcome back the last version resident of the gong tunnel by detention count has claimed god sexually assault him during prison setters the revelation comes amid president obama's new push to shut down the count however the white house's own quote steps to keep stumbling up on a no go from congress he's been carrying out an investigation into the story doesn't seem there as well. shucker armor the alaska british detainee at the guantanamo bay prison who's been on hunger strike since january against his unlawful detention the claims that he's being assaulted sometimes sexually during prison search as i am or was arrested in afghanistan in two thousand and one of he's been at the prison a for eleven years without having been charged with any offense and he says he that he still faces a daily quote unquote a forced cell extractions they flip me over for the surge mostly that's just an
assault sometimes a sexual assault we call it the get my message they carry me like a second potatoes which is really painful for me. this information was revealed in a declassified conversation between elmer and his lawyer in the united states this news comes just weeks after u.k. prime minister david cameron had said that he had raised the case of amr with the u.s. president barack obama at the g eight summit over concerns that the u.s. was trying to render armor to saudi arabia we contacted the british foreign office and this is what they said. we take any allegations of mr mistreatment seriously mr ramos case remains a high priority for the u.k. government and we continue to make clear to the u.s. that we want to be released and returned to the u.k. as a matter of urgency stories of inmates at guantanamo have been coming to light especially with attention on every hunger strike that's been going on inside most of this
information revealed through lawyers of the detainees a one other example for instance is more of who had described the prison as a quote unquote place without walls he said that he had suffered repeated abuse said terry geisha techniques including sexual humiliation of water torture as well as sleep deprivation in response to artie's queries if the deputy joint task force public affairs officer at guantanamo sent to us this reply we don't comment on the need to take a knee on the gay shoes made through the defense attorneys regardless of how ridiculous and absurd to the allegations might be we also contacted the u.s. state department for their comments on the shocker on my space but we have yet to hear a reply reporting from london i'm tess are cilia. and clive smith they know of representing the us says his client is not the only one subjected to degrading procedures. i raised it with the american courts that they shouldn't be doing this they shouldn't
effectively be sexually assaulting the prisoners and it was the government i believe who first started using the term scruton search if you will believe that the they actually admitted this sort of thing and it's been done to try to intimidate prisoners out of talking to the lords so that unfortunately the truth would not come out around town a babe in arms out most of them are resisting jack has been going through this for months and months and months now and i'm kind of proud of them in a way that you know his response to that is when they leave him in his cell he starts singing you know both molly's songs new get up stand up or be your arithmetics and the guards to show that he's not to be coward. i think that shaq is standing up for his rights and the rights of other prisoners prisoners has motivated the guards under orders from the more senior officers to treat very bad but actually it's not how the effects the desired effect on us and it's made
shatters stronger mentally because he recognizes that he is now at least in some parts in control of his lot so i've actually been impressed by the psychological improvements and even no physically isn't very tough straits and we've got plenty more news on line for you including and lympics about politics russia says it will suspend the enforcement of our to gay propaganda law during such a twenty plus in winter games at monty's house accounting dot com. and a french court rules in favor of the controversial project. paving the way for genetically modified crops to be he's by the country's farms lying to land hold behind the decision and if other e.u. members could follow a seat. right on the scene. in the. first three. night. living picture.
on a recorder with. an instrument. to be in the middle. and top story now they grunting about with snowden's temporary asylum in russia and washington's reaction and to discuss the developments i'm now joined live by their own nic a question in aqaba who heads the institute of foreign political studies and anish says here in moscow their own a nice to see here at aussie welcome do you think this situation with average snowden in this situation russia had only any other choice but to grant him a to grant him asylum. well indeed i'm very proud that russia has been able to grant political asylum to edward snowden and
indeed it had no choice but to do that this is a decision the decision made by an independent sobering state additionally a well russia has been left without much choice mr snowden spa sports was console to him when he was on russia's there it to read and follow the more while the president obama said on the on june twenty seventh that he wouldn't sound the plight of troops to land the plane was mr snowden only a few days later indeed a plane was lended with the president of believe you ever more on this on the suspicion that mr snowden was on board so if it's in this situation it was very difficult to choose to come back to the negotiation squeeze with washington and that's the only decision russia would make a trivial point of view he's more of an asset or a burden to most or neither. i would
think still in slightly different terms i think that was the only right thing to do and russia did it what's a puling in this situation in the united states is that young man who called the government. a true fight against a player in violation so for american constitutional lawyer and international laws instead of being helped by the government i'd be. all that's good and the president obama is a trained constitutional lawyer different in those the considerations and well it's too bad that they have to face a hundred plus years of prison rather than no indeed being help in those cases being investigated and the truth they were betrayed though so if these so violations be no punished. as you sad and we've heard it as well from many acts parents and who point out that russia did everything by the brute everything
legitimate and get washington is furious as you say and is threatening average precautions was how we're witnessing here us neglect for international law all mere disappointment over behavior if used as unfriendly. will indeed their war is syrian is serious violations of international law. but again i think that even in the white house in the white house or the u.s. officials realize that there is no legal grown for mr snowden return for example will be american ambassador he most school was asking russia not to extradite but to reach your and mr snowden to the united states which is not indeed the legal term and what are the measures the white house and the congress might be can see there in no. the direction of those measures should go even met in
investigating and the a.d.f. by nishan those who caused. and actually. committed to build spoil ation so for american and international law rather than punishing russia for four in this case for no reason do you think we'll hear from snowden in the near future or will he keep a low profile until he gets a permanent state as head russia or elsewhere. i would suspect that at some poor into you near future mr snowden would good would play i would like to share his his thoughts about this iteration and his his considerations ways with the russian and international audience however he must be really exhausted after the after these exceptional adventures so it's probably it
would probably take him some time to to recall better. than he would be able to can see the speaking with the international press. rights have been a fair question in the correct direction of the institute of foreign policy studies and initiatives here in moscow the running of many thanks. but the use all of zimbabwe on syria now fisher expired fears are growing that european countries might get more involved in the complex if they stop supplying rebels with weapons but some in europe our already affected by the never ending war up to six hundred europeans and that's only their fishel figure have left their families to fight against the syrian government and my colleague bill told spoke to dimitri born ten from belgium whose son joined the hardest in syria. to want to hold on to it friends with muslim brothers when they became eighteen and there's nothing wrong with that to go holiday for the wall to know and after. that they
may send those much of theirs in cairo that they give him money that they give him a scholarship that they pay money to study to continue the study of this muslim religion and sufism you know but i didn't trust it to have the feeling that something was going wrong you had said when. i'm going to make it fast as. he went to syria i started this cover every day thousand pictures and videos of syria and one day i recognize my all son in the video with other belgian guys so i moved to syria i was in the way i've seen so many cruel things even when the fighting group that me that put the cap on me i was almost dead and at least i came back to the question with empty hands because these radical people these leaders this show you don't give me the opportunity to see my own son if you experience the horrors of war do you think he would want to come back but they may not let him in effect has he been kidnapped that's the truth because they. were standing above all these
children from the west not only from the west but many of the young guys from all over the walls they are using this young children and they're all months that they see they see their family are they go back to europe is a very traumatic time for us what do you say to other parents who could well experience the same thing what you say offer in terms of advice that this could happen to their children it's time five to twelve that the international community little stand up and react i am very realistic and not only me but this is a much it's all the parents and that's why the international community in the direct doing nothing doing nothing the west is doing nothing to bring our children back they get a chance even sabbat this radical fighters. and to some other world news in brief this hour supporters of the arts of egyptian president mohamed morsi continued their cairo sit in on friday with people demanding be toppled leader be reinstated the demonstration follows a massive overnight approaches that saw thousands marching to the headquarters of

expand although the fact that our drones infrared eyes are very scary the more common street cameras are way more likely to want to average day violate your privacy and thus they invented the justice cap this hack blocks your face with the lights from face recognition software all the camera will see is an anonymous glowing ghost i personally haven't tested this thing out nor have i seen it with my own eyes and three aaa batteries on your head at all times does seem like a bit of a bother but hey if you really want to be left alone and you're willing to throw down a few dollars this looks like a pretty good fashion statement to me the sad thing is that this sort of invention should exist people shouldn't have to live with the constant fear of unlawful consent list observation but sadly they do so inventors keep the freedom fashions coming but that's just my opinion. good afternoon and welcome to prime interest i'm harry and boring. and here's the
