7:00 am
otherwise it would have been more. sinister cyber security and for what i say truth makes a drug about pushing it see i whistle blow at was. the us federal hold and leaves president obama grounded as he is forced to cancel a trip to asia while the us treasury issues a warning of a catastrophic default. on the price tag for the new ones on his bailout reeks feeding the government couldn't have chosen timing for the project.
7:01 am
international news and common life or months ago this is all see was made things for joining us so i can trunks and sound whistleblower edward snowden should be only had to list a list of names recently nominated for a prize for freedom of thought that was a drug made by a former n.s.a. director michael hayden but it's. a way of criticism he told. he was misunderstood. well speaking at a washington post panel discussion on a cyber security former n.s.a. director general michael hayden joked about putting edward snowden on a list that has very little to do with human rights or honorable recognition america's former spy chief eg knowledge that snowden an n.s.a. whistleblower has been nominated for a human rights award and then reportedly said quote i must admit in my darker moment over the past several months i had also thought of nominating mr snowden but
7:02 am
it was for a different list unquote some journalists including brendan sasso from the hill blog have interpreted mr hayden's words to mean putting snowden on america's kill list now general hayden confirmed to me that the quote is correct but he claims that his words have been misinterpreted and he never proposed for snowden to be put on any assassination list but some would argue that this is probably the worst time for any former or current top u.s. official to even speak sarcastically about putting snowden on a list and that's because journalists jeremy scahill and glenn greenwald are currently working together on a joint investigation on how the u.s. national security agency has been involved in the wider overseas assassination program run by the obama administration now both of these journalists are known for their hard hitting investigations of the u.s. government and their collaboration will reportedly reveal how they say the vast surveillance network of the n.s.a. operates in conjunction with clandestine operations run by the u.s.
7:03 am
military or the cia now for those who don't know the prize that snowden is nominated for was established by the european parliament in order to a good knowledge individuals or organizations who have dedicated their lives to human rights and freedom of thought reporting from new york marina poor nial r.t. . and despite the fog of the british air and us a treehouse no donna being heard by snowden's revelations. david swanson feels his coalmines were made in poor taste. when you joke about killing somebody with an ax your viewed as a sociopath when you joke about killing people with a million dollar missile you're considered a big powerful person who knows lots of secret stuff and so your rage is directed in particular at people who reveal that secret stuff so we've arrived at the point of putting whistleblowers and those who leak information for whatever reason on the
7:04 am
list of enemies as if they are fighting a war because they are revealing the secret information including embarrassing and humiliating information it is of course outrageous criminal and in fact sociopathic and i think the timing is the same timing of the past weeks and months in which this has become a top problem in the u.s. government the audience laughed when president obama joked about using predator drones against his daughter's boyfriends joking about war in u.s. culture is acceptable people talk seriously about new wars and people who claim to oppose it don't speak up with outrage the international monetary fund has said the alarms reigning over america's debt crisis placing the world economy under threat on that christian that god wants friends will be thought was then the current u.s. budget stunned all if congress fails to hike its debt ceiling like it usually has
7:05 am
to do everything. the ongoing political uncertainty over the budget over the debt ceiling does not help the government shutdown is bad enough but to fill you to raise the debt ceiling would be far worse. and could very seriously damage not only the u.s. economy but also the entire global economy. in the meantime in less than two weeks america will run out of money unless lawmakers agree to raise the debt ceiling to fail or the failure will lead to devastating effects warning from the u.s. treasury department's predicting and the president to decide with catastrophic consequences for the collapse of the american economy is sending shock waves across the globe ending with a financial crisis and recession worse than the two thousand and eight meltdown the u.s. government shutdown is taking its toll on the president's plans as well with barack
7:06 am
obama forced a counsellor trip to asia and mr summits the federal stoppage has placed hundreds of thousands of y. of his own on paid leave it's costing the american economy at least three hundred million dollars every day business and consumer confidence that kindness leaving from the city university says the crisis. yeah. right this is a new normal in the economy and seems to be a new normal in our political system this isn't the first time that congress hasn't passed a budget by october first which was the deadline the twelve consecutive year that they failed to meet the deadline the only reason there hasn't been a shutdown for the last twelve years there's always been this temporary resolution that's the bill for a six week temporary resolution that the house speaker of the house john boehner is refusing to put before congress for a vote right now so there is no constitutional mechanism and that suggests some
7:07 am
sort of constitutional crisis in a time when the economy is provoking a serious conflict. and it meant so the federal stoppage isn't as full as day now and with continue squabbles in congress there are fears it will drag on for another week or more and that mark and people's trust in the economy is plummeting according to a recent gallup poll economic confidence has nosedived says the federal government brought its operation. and it fell to minus thirty two points which is the lowest reading in more than a year and his interview show politicking larry king spoke to american business magnate donald trump to get his view on the events unfolding in the u.s. and here's a preview of the program coming up for you throughout the day here on alt. the government shutdown what should take well it's a mess larry i mean the whole country is being scuffed at in left and we're not doing well as a country as you know we will no longer be the great economic power in two thousand
7:08 am
and sixteen as you know china will be replacing us if we keep going the way we're going which looks like inevitable that's a fact the effect we passed a health care law right the supreme court upheld it right and the republicans don't want to fund it well it's a law that really has to be that's true in the law it's still your l.a. and i understand where you're coming from but it is something that's turning out to be very negative it's having a huge negative impact on business over at least happening and i guess that's what is going to happen one way or the other i don't see this getting them to the end but i fully understand what the republicans are doing i really like the wall street journal it's a major mistake well out of just hours ago well let's see how it happens less a strange things happen larry let's see what happens in the end but they are very committed to killing obamacare but everybody's committed obama's committed to a moment if you like commitment he's committed you would certainly think that he's not coming to end it that's what they want so it's a tough it's a very tough situation for the country and it's somewhat embarrassing for the
7:09 am
country. much more government must now shut down until congress funds it again. and coming up on the cross in our hands of the government plans to build that crime scene the school the growing campus the locals a serious crime some of that rosie on to him for a start it's. on the front row gold was poured on to the ground a swift citizens are demanding of the whole concept a weapon for money we'll tell you more about this in five minutes time. point being. like the new fashion show. also designed.
7:10 am
in the best shop windows. luxury is the school. this is the last. month to live on our cheap. wealthy british style. time to. go to. the. market. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger no holds barred look at the global financial headlines.
7:11 am
this is live from moscow welcome back the young team on a mission to rid syria with chemical weapons say that making encouraging progress they're working with the syrian government to secure all sites and spectrums and does a bring on the weapons plan for next week but there remains some analysis of questions over the use of chemical weapons in syria and who can talk about that with the host of our walls a pot shot on a boy who recently reviewed and interviewed the u.n. development chief and should say at every view did you on report on the use of chemical weapons in syria is quite solid axon a so. inspectors claim that obviously they want to stay away from politics and they use their scientific methods how reliable. methods well i think that's the main problem and i should add to that the report on the use of chemical weapons the
7:12 am
first report was released a couple of weeks ago the next report is expected by the end of the of the year and this is going to be the full report but the one that we've seen so far as your just said the u.n. inspectors claim to use very robust very reliable scientific methods but if you actually go and look at the war there are so many questions and the main question is of. the reliability of the whole research because just to explain you quickly what the inspectors did they they went to several sites the area the area the horrible videos of children and bodies and. at one location they spread around to all or another location this bend around five hours and they try to collect samples environmental samples tissues fabrics and also interviews survivors and take blood samples from them and the biggest problem there is that
7:13 am
none of the environmental samples that they can can was moved to test it positively for sarin but all the survivors for some reason tested positive like i suggest we listen to one of the sound bites from the interview that i did with angela kane be un high representative for disarmament affairs i think that would read things into perspective. but it did prove the siren was evident in the samples they found but on the other hand if they did not find samples in the environmental the environmental samples if they did not find certain the environmental samples it just testifies to the honesty of the reinspection so they're saying this is what we found this is what we took now of course it's interesting. miskin would talk about the almost you know the inspectors i think we would expect nothing less from the year the personnel but. you need to understand what actually happened when
7:14 am
average the investigators had a chance to do the job whenever they had the freedom to go around and collect samples none of them test positively and yet whenever they tried to you get from tissue samples from people who were pre-selected by the opposition they all test positively and this is statistically it's simply impossible i mean there are just two possible explanations either the united nations inspectors didn't know how to do their job and. there's environmental samples or the opposition tried to influence the investigation and brought people who were probably exposed to sarah but at some other location and you make your pick up and it's up to you who you trust more the u.n. inspectors or the opposition to what i find extremely interesting and inexplicable to me is that the human specter is in the u.n. reports would still claim that they have a clear and convincing evidence that sarin was used whereas as we just discussed those evidence i'm not there clear north insisting. on the investigation is
7:15 am
continuing of course but of course the report suggests all the mass chemical or talk me damascus ranges from hundreds to thousands do well actually did the inspections examine the board use them so well it is also a very interesting case because we all remember that you know those pictures of dead children bodies were the main case for president obama the main reason for president obama to go to war in syria he wanted to punish president assad for killing all those people and what's strange is. the u.n. inspectors didn't even request to see not there of those bodies they didn't want to see the autopsies they didn't want to go to the morgue and. this is how this can explain the reasons why such a request from a. there were so many victims who were still alive that there was really no need to
7:16 am
to exuma bodies and basically to tissue from them because there were so many victims who were alive but we had also complete case history meaning that the victims were able to tell how they were affected what they felt what the symptoms were which is much more powerful than taking tissue from from the from the body well. in my humble opinion autopsies are very very rich source of any sort of information and war over the u.n. inspector side a lot of stories about a lot of interviews about how many people were killed at some point and they report they say that. they were like. a family of forty people killed in them and yet for some reason they make absolutely no after it's you go and see those bodies while i think it's. no wonder that the bodies should be examined next on a boy alive or in the studio from the house to walls of products on the thank you very much a source says the citizens are demanding
7:17 am
a crucial change in the constitution pushing for the introduction of a guaranteed income for everyone. these are agency to follow the story and also use all of it is in both supporters of the basic income idea have gathered for running . what we're seeing here in switzerland is a completely revolutionary outlook towards the social welfare system what's being proposed by a group of swiss citizens is a guaranteed minimum income now what that would mean is that every citizen whether working in which every job all not at all would receive a set amount of money now in order to try and illustrate their point that switzerland is such a wealthy country and it has a mountain of money that can be shared out around all of its citizens what we're seeing right now happening just over to my right is. fifteen tons of gold coins poured out onto the parliament square here that's four hundred
7:18 am
thousand swiss francs worth of money that's around three hundred fifty thousand euro now this new revolutionary plan and as i say it's resulted in this outpouring of gold coins is well it's caused some consternation is it just free money or will it result in people not even bothering to work now those behind the scheme say that it will actually encourage people to work it will encourage people to to follow their dreams they say that this will allow them allow people in the country a right to dignity you know right to choose exactly what they want to do not pressured by the pretty extreme precious of having to finance their everyday lives they say that the modern world has created a situation whereby people don't work for what they enjoy they worked in order to just pay their bills and they want to change this now when it comes to financing it well that's where it gets into the real political wrangling and if this does get beyond a referendum not certainly something is going to be discussed it has been put forward
7:19 am
that perhaps taxes could be raised it's also being put forward that could be a financial transaction tax of course switzerland one of the the major banking centers of the world if not the major banking center of the world also rises in v.a. t. in value added tax could be brought in. but it's a certainly a revolutionary scheme that they're looking forward to putting to parliament here and is set to change perhaps even the very way that we concept what work is this what this initiative hopes to do is make sure that switzerland huge mountains of wealth could actually become the face for all of its citizens as greece struggles to make ends meet plans to build a new mosque in athens are in theory locals the money from the project is said to come from state funds despite the country already suffering continued. going off. the evening prayer one of the five daily spiritual rituals for muslims worldwide
7:20 am
some prefer to do it at home others visit a mosque. this one looks more or less ordinary from the inside but there is one detail which makes it stand out from the rest in other parts of the globe this is a literally an underground mosque set up inside the garage of an apartment building things and every day muslims from nearby neighborhoods come here to pray while in total there are around one hundred twenty of similar unofficial mosques all across the city it's hard to tell the difference between an official an illegal but the maisha facilities are the local muslim communities only choice there is simply no official mosque in athens we're talking about thousands of people that hold the great passport and they. vow to this country and they are important but not at the time of their players greece is among the main points of entry for migrants to the e.u. and it's estimated around three hundred thousand muslims live in athens alone. so
7:21 am
for the first time since gaining independence from the ottoman empire in the eighteenth century greek authorities are planning to build a mosque in the capital but as it turns out many of the crisis hit a traditional orthodox christian nation are not happy with the idea the mosques price tag is one million euro plans to be paid from the state budget not the next of the goods this money should be given to poor people pensioners who are starving in are collecting trash on the streets so they can eat the government should give the one million euro's to these people and not build mosques for the turks will be again of them if eventually have debts and then there are thousands of unemployed sick poor starving people it's like telling me to build a house without even having money to eat can this happen no it can't be clearly it's only a drop in the ocean for many greeks who once again dove into a wave of nationwide strikes against fresh austerity measures. and while the government redirects anyone i'm happy with the mosques construction to the courts
7:22 am
it seems that stories like this a reminder that the financial crisis isn't only about cash but it's exposing the most sensitive social problems that for many are becoming too expensive to tolerate you go to school. phones greece. and you can also have goal line for the best stories from our web two main cleaving falling from freedom. around the walled up one thing down in cyberspace on a burning in sophisticated snooping technology to monitor their citizens online activity says according to one you are pulled. while three point zero point one billion dollars is not much is how much it will cost japan to get u.s. soldiers out of nawa but only if it holds drones instead we have the whole story and more so to all. in the way love the desert landscapes of the west to bind a small village has become a way he says of palestinian resistance against the israeli occupation its
7:23 am
residents have planted flowers in hundreds of sponge israeli. to all of those killed during their weekly protest against the separation barrier policy i went to see the unusual golden. this is between village in the west bank it's a symbol of palestinian resistance against israeli occupation it's often in the headlines because almost every friday villagers here organize protests against the israeli separation wall they claim that the wall has taken some sixty percent of the land away six years ago they went to court and the judge ruled that part of the wall needs to be rebooted the village has also become a symbol of occupation office and the same to peace here is the garden of humvee rama he is a palestinian photographer and journalist whose managed to turn a negative into a positive for sisters to make always such that it's resisting
7:24 am
to make it to make the people to join to like what the people here are too weak you know be killed to change the idea what palestinians doing all the. violent god and commemorates bassam abu ahmed a palestinian protesters leader who was killed back in two thousand and nine when a tear gas canister struck him in the chest this is a place where my cousin percy was killed here will he get sure to show there is something. we can make. of these two guys to mr who could who could kill the people or the human and then we planted the flowers inside the city to show that was like we have to change about this file and things this is one way that his fight is not forgotten policy our team believe in west bank. gunfire erupted in the heart of washington after a woman with
7:25 am
a young child in her coat attempted to breach the security of barclays of the white house police opened fire in pursuit of the driver who was put off towards congress or hell running a secret service vehicle on her way with police opening fire to studs. the woman who was unarmed was eventually. the child was. and if you take a look at this map right here you can see how they traced unfold its rawest downtown washington back and starting at the white house the suspect advances all the way to the capitol building coming under police fire on the chase ended almost two miles away from the white house where the trial was scaled and a duck so mark mason believes officials had other ways to stop the woman throughout the chase given the fact that we have been on armed female the police have important say that she was on armed there was an infant in the car. there was no
7:26 am
gunfire of any kind that came from the car at any time a lot of questions need to be asked i think that there is reason to believe that the police in washington d.c. way way overreacted that there are alternatives to respond to situations short of deadly force in a speeding car it's a variety of ways it's stopping them the tires heavier and then they can be countered by various means they put strips in front of the vehicles so they can shoot out the tires because they have these rebel group things that they don't have a lot of time but all this whole situation is that the police had no evidence that she had any gun and she had not used any weapon at all she was using a vehicle that vehicle must receive attention yes of course it's. an exclusive interview with the spanish channel president rafael correa aslam to barack obama's
7:27 am
exceptionalism and even combat his tone to that of the now it says and here's a sneak peek of what he had to say. you know basis you know i still think president obama is a good and smart man but i'm his speeches remind you of the speeches the nazis made in the run up and during the second world war they consider themselves the selected supreme race such speeches and ideas pose an extreme threat. coming up a special report on how they knock it off that has a devastating effect some fans of lions and. you know i'm old enough to remember reruns when gomer pyle used to cry citizen's
7:28 am
arrest when he saw something wrong in mayberry and a new law in russia could allow our city average to do the same thing by helping to enforce law in the country this low allows citizens to protect public order by becoming volunteer workers deputy policeman and even forming people's militias which will in theory prevent crime or at least allow the police to be informed more quickly and accurately of course this like any project which sounds nice on paper is all about the implementation so we'll see how these deputies and militias will work overall i think this won't have much of an effect on crime but it could have a huge impact on non-criminal bad public behavior you know i am not the bravest guy on the planet and it's hard to confront a group of five drunk guys who are just as big as you who are acting like idiots on the street but doing so with ten stone sober militiaman buddies could provide a much more convincing argument for the drunkard's this could be a big step forward for democracy when you actually have at least
7:29 am
a scrap of power or control over the events in your neighborhood then you are sure feel like people actually have a lot of power and this could be good for the country. but that's just my opinion. even today the european consumer has no way of.
