thank. you. another scandal hit c.n.n. as a political commentator is caught on camera ridiculous the channel's rush of coverage . but what he thinks happens to move the rest of. the things that make up. israel bombs government positions in syria calling it an act of retaliation after a stray round lands in the disputed golan heights. meantime in northern syria america's allies in the region are fighting it out to we take a look at what in u.s. support for the good and turkey could have in the region.
good morning for me kevin oh it's thursday the twenty ninth of june just turned nine in the morning here in moscow and now you're watching out international good to have you company first and another undercover videos being released revealing attitudes it seems that c.n.n. towards russia related stories this time one of the american news channels political commentators seems to get all off. would you think's going to happens to the pole rush. was going to be really. it is now the second the second video rather in as many days for investigative journalism group project veritas with details about the latest thing. yet another leak related to c.n.n. from james o'keefe and project vera toss that was van jones briefly served in the obama administration and is now a commentator for c.n.n. in the clip he says that the the russia thing is
a nothing burger now it's important to be clear here we don't exactly know what he's referring to about the russia thing could be the russian investigation could be the allegations about trump the context of the clip is not exactly clear this leak comes on just in the aftermath of another recent leak from project there at asa jon bon a field an important producer for c.n.n. says the russia story is the polite term is nonsense that was just recently released as well now we here at r t reached out to c.n.n. to ask for their comment and they have not but are coming out are not without controversy james o'keefe is personally facing a million dollar lawsuit at the hands of a contractor he interviewed after he interviewed them posing as someone else and this was a contractor allegedly working with the democratic party so there's a lot of questions that still remain. in their will soon and seems to been struggling to get a grip on its russia coverage of late with stuff quick to publish without solid evidence a few days ago three journalist quit channel off to c.n.n.
the story of an alleged senate investigation into links between a russian investment fund and comb for the of donald trump that bucky junya reese and i broke a story claiming russia had compromising post information about president trump based on a dossier written by a former british spy it was later admitted though that the dossier was flawed and filled with unverified allegations the group on the. latest on the cup a video says c.n.n. is not the only outlet landing in hope. no one can argue that being a judge is not a political commentator on c.n.n. to be on crossfire a rare regular contributor he's been on after there's no argument that they in general just let it go we may not just see it then but we also know the washington post and a lot of other planets eat their words i want to make this very clear if you are in the mainstream media in america the end you are telling lies you are defending your
gatekeeping stories you're keeping the public from going through your our meantime russian media has been singled out during a senate hearing devoted to alleged russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election of course. sputnik made their effort to have a a an effect on the election so just the fact that maybe our t. in and. had a myriad of that was different in britain then maybe the mainstream press that would be a sign of russia trying to influence the outcome would it not. watching across not herring and legs here is have scaled washington the. nothing burger has becoming a very firm term in the political lexicon in the united states and another one has been served on the senate floor today despite all the scary sounding things like rush and maddening in the elections worldwide and this whole two and
a half hour session was dedicated to that talking not only about the past elections where a rush allegedly meddled but even the future ones while russia will definitely meddle and some of the wording of course on the floor was very tough russia's blatant interference in the united states twenty sixteen presidential elections was unprecedented in both scale and scope and many have said this is actually the crime of the century. if you think about it it is russia has interfered or an attempt to interfere in elections from france to the netherlands from the balkans to the baltics russian interference in european political space is strategic you have any doubt that russian interference is driven by himself no doubt about it. the same answer no doubt. no doubt. so somehow without any shred of evidence they have linked the soul to putting himself nonetheless the list of countries as you've
heard is very rare very wise those countries allegedly affected by the so-called russian meddling hacking and all those things in those countries obviously included france and france was actually voiced on the senate floor today the only problem is that as we know they had of the french intelligence recently said that russians apparently had nothing to do with apparent hacking off across this campaign the purpose of the deal is not possible to. be a criminal group it really can be anyone in the it's like it's still the simplicity of the technical part. of who created it and so this person can be in any country with any kind of vision so you know generally for us covering this story for a long time this is just another day in the office reverting back to accusations without presenting any proof and it seems like when anything goes wrong anyway it's russia's fault or russia splay book to describe democracies across the world and this was just another day on the sounded like this with no actual substance produced initially put american private investigator off the charts all till summed
up his thoughts on the allegations against russia but you have here sadly is clear evidence of just how dysfunctional the american legislative branch of government is now of course to arrange these type of hearings they're done in advance this is long been scheduled i doubt they planned to have these hearings just following what happened recently on c.n.n. you know we've now had multiple different people even james komi himself under oath multiple times has said that the no foreign power successfully meddled and effect of the election results in two thousand and sixteen and the general reaction that's coming out inside america is another fall ready with this rush of which which now admittedly is a witch. as she. some of the world events this morning israel's launched a missile strike against a syrian government military position there are no reports of any injuries though the attack came after
a stray syrian mortar shell apparently landed in the north of the disputed golan heights which is occupied by israel and israeli military statement later confirmed it's retaliate. in response to the project launched earlier from syria towards israel i.d.f. targeted the syrian military position that fire the mortar there's been an increase in border fire exchanged between israel and syria of late the israeli prime minister says his country quote will not tolerate errant shooting and will respond to all firing middle east peace journalist martin j. told us the golan heights situation demonstrates though that the syrian conflict is still evolving tensions beginning to mount and what's happening in that particular part of southern syria right on the border with israel is that is that the israeli prime minister is getting very nervous about something which wasn't supposed to happen which is that these sorts skirmishes were not supposed to go as far down as the golan heights go hi it's a strategic strategically important in the war that's going on now or that the war
is not reported them so much by international media which is that the war between assad regime such partners and the west so it's a geopolitical war which is which is a forgery and that's why there's all this tension in that particular area the so much going on in the region while syria's southern border faces strikes from israelis northern border now it's being torn by fighting as well turkey has launched an artillery barrage against the kurdish y p g militia in one of the many syrian hotspots this town the town of are for it. so let's get a better handle on this than here is where the fighting is not new to the kurdish and the turkish forces. you can see the k. coming up most of the battle is on territory claimed by the y. p.j. something that strongly disputed by turkey all the way along the line here's a real hot spot meantime the u.s.
considers both sides as it's in the fight against islamic state it's extremely complicated daniel hawkins looks next at how the u.s. support for the rivals may actually lead them to more instability in the region. it's turkey versus the kurds both of them u.s. allies and it's left washington walking a delicate tightrope between its two friends which happen to be you shall have sworn enemies. we should be using we should be looming that we do not need terrorist organizations like the p y d n y p g and the rock operation we could have a lot of great success over the next coming years a difficult balancing act to say the least but lately the scales seem to have tipped to favor the kurdish side after all kurdish groups have been washington's weapon of choice in the fight against islamic state the us government to supply them with arms and even sent forces to support them we have already started to
provide the weapons and equipment in the area nation to or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arizona syrian kurds so what happens to the kurds when i still on the brink of defeat is taken out of the equation will the us remain such a faithful friend probably not it turns out the weapons washington has given to its kurdish allies were actually just loaned out temporarily when the fighting is done the guns will have to be returned at least that's what was promised to turkey what we gave them were weapons for urban fighting basically and yes we will recover the gear when it's no longer needed by them now syrian kurds might dream of autonomy in their country but if they think they'll be granted this soon reward for being the most effective anti us all force on the ground they just need to look at the iraqi kurds across the border this is how the us responded to very calls for independence but we support a unified stable democratic and a federal iraq we understand and appreciate the legitimate aspirations of the
people of iraqi kurdistan even leaderless is an internal wracking matter but first and foremost we have to defeat isis and if the kurds in syria were hoping to at least keep the territories they've liberated from islamics. that's also not likely to happen judging by previous u.s. the mines that those areas be returned to locals as soon as the fight is over we do have a commitment as we've spoken to before from kurdish leadership that those forces who stabilize the area will mirror the local population they will turn over areas to local population as long as the specter of syria kurdish fighters will spearhead the front line but six months down the road and it's anyone's guess. holcomb is there meantime russia's foreign minister has hit out at u.s. allegations that the syrian government is planning a chemical attack. such claims could encourage terrorists to use chemical weapons to conduct
a false flag attack that would then be blamed on president does the. united states worldwide energy market share will be on president trumps mind at a speech later thursday but with global oil markets already swamped with supplies and rock bottom prices that could be dangerous to america's increasingly aggressive export tactics america has stalled on a bigger piece of the global energy. push the president ministration is cooling energy dominant. present america to achieve energy dominance by utilizing our abundant resources. good both here and abroad but there's a catch the increase in global energy consumption stands at one percent current. lower than the ten year average the us is looking to enter a highly competitive. market washington will need to shake up the existing energy
superpower quite an ambitious plan and geographically speaking the u.s. is simply too far away from the major energy market which will make transportation . the old mantra of energy independence as washington steps up its. be seen. energy dominance perhaps even in. i think the strategy of the u.s. is to continue to increase crude oil production refine it through increased capacity at our facility is along the gulf coast at the same time increasing our use and production of renewable fuels solar and wind so that we can accommodate the increasing demand throughout the world a lot of the u.s. petroleum products that we're exporting are going not only to central and south america but as well as tap africa and europe and that forces competition between
the u.s. and other countries such as russia or the arabian gulf countries it's exactly quarter past one of the morning here in moscow thanks for choosing is coming up after the break there's been a major upset for a tele in the world football at the confederations cup in russia will tell you all about it. a little warm sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to do socks for the tell you that they'll be gossiping tablet or. i think they will announce. that we along the border with one.
not only do you have an opiate crisis in america killing thousands of people every month or so you've got people walking around no to no t.v. to post trying to get around. iraq i am an american and. it's quite shocking but it saves the pharmaceutical companies wanting the executives to pay themselves huge bonuses executive bonuses are what matter now people get that much in mexico there's a slightly different approach to people's well being they think health care is maybe part of the package of human rights and of course they're right about that but their culture is richer they still. russia's foreign minister slammed us allegations that the syrian government is planning a chemical attack he said washington's claim could encourage terrorists to use chemical weapons in a false flag attack that would then be blamed on president assad. made the remarks during a meeting with germany's foreign minister peter all of reports it was certainly
very workman like there wasn't so many of the pleasantries that you usually find at these type of diplomatic talks very straight speaking from the russian foreign minister in particular he said that russia would react to u.s. provocations towards the syrian government he also encouraged the united states not to look for a pretext in order to attack syrian government forces the overarching message was though that the words coming out of washington at the moment that a chemical attack would warrant a response from the united states well the message coming from russia is that could be playing directly into the hands of the extremists and terrorists. i look at the u.s. experts and they say openly thanks to use these claims by washington might prove occasions and shift the blame on so the syrian government. well on tuesday the
statement came out of washington that they said they knew that in u.s. intelligence circles that there was an it chemical attack being planned by assad and that if that was carried out then there would be repercussions in the form of an attack from the united states well what that is prompted is journalists in america asking questions from washington and from senior figures in the administration over where they got that information from and what evidence there was for it. evidence to share with us this detention. preparation for the use of chemical weapons is that was an absolutely right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do what you say is evidence or proof of intelligence i'm not going to get it out with you but this is a very serious and grave matter a great deal coming from the state department spokesperson there but washington
insists the president laid down against syria has perhaps stopped an attack now that comes from james mattis the u.s. defense secretary he says that it's possible that an attack may not happen and that is as a result of the threat that the u.s. laid out so as it stands we haven't heard any evidence presented from the state department as you just heard there or from anywhere within the u.s. government we haven't had any proof that a chemical attack happened the previous time that the u.s. launched missile strikes against syria that attack in a blip we heard about this meeting in crescent are say that he wanted to see the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog allowed to carry out a full investigation on the ground there as he pointed out they haven't been allowed to do that as of yet and in related developments the united states u.n. ambassador has joined the pentagon chief in linking a lack of any recent chemical incidents in syria to washington's threat of
retaliation. i can tell you that i do to the president's actions and we did not see and i would like to think that the president saved many n.s.a. men women and children well they just get more and more comical really i don't think anybody who follows the situation seriously can. make the alias saying with any. with any credibility it's it's almost laughable that one day they claim to know there's the syrians are preparing you know i came a call weapons attack and then the next day they say well what didn't happen it must have been because the president issued this threat it's really getting kind of silly be have mr madison and bassett or haley essentially claiming credit for the non occurrence of an event that was unlikely to have occurred in the first place it's very strange and it makes you wonder if this was all some kind of a big what we call a kabuki dance a big show in noise to make them look tough and effective maybe in advance of mr
trump's meeting with mr putin at the g twenty. as for the full says day morning chile's reached the final of football confederations cup after beating portugal on penalties of the informant placed on collymore following the game for us in the russian city of because at noon after ninety minutes new nil after actions i was in the greatest football my stan collymore the will deserve the same but there were plenty of chances in the on the way in the first five or ten minutes of play we thought it might go on and be a classic and lots of hoff chances lots of crosses coming into the box head is just going wide says a kick volleys well site so very much over the title of the ninety minutes it was hot chances rather than play a coach on the seas so i guess it was always going to head one why and that why it was penalties you have to give credit to clyde you know bravo the manchester city goalkeeper is that a very very difficult year first year at munches does it say in the premier league . and it wasn't a good one so we would have got plenty of confidence from these three very good sides first from first one from rick. second one from sherman so you know the
difference between failed and then the third one from luis not an inexperienced international footballer calls himself a former manchester you don't you play it back in england and you said that if you're taking penalty kicks you've got to put your best players at those he said this renowned it has to be taking the first of the second otherwise you might not get a kick in that's exactly what have set the standards you have your best players walking up first because they are the most experienced christan around our schools penalties the schools goals for fun but i think he wanted the spotlight to himself and the stock he's a she's been there a little bit for a while now and santos is the coach he's got to accept some of the responsibility for that that's clearly a mistake the best player not even getting to take a spot kick disappointment obviously for portugal fans but also perhaps for christie only renowned of fans and well to chile they won it in the most dramatic fashion and amounted to trying to he was down at the stadium the khazan arena is saying good bye to the confident ration cop and it has become the lucky one for
team chile but of course it is not only about luck it's about the skill it's about the support and i've already told you that there were more chilean fans here on wednesday and trust me you could really feel that inside that stadium and remember that these guys had to travel almost fifteen thousand kilometers to be here the chilling crowd kept saying let's go chile because tonight we're going to win and then bravo claudio bravo three penalty saves in a row unbelievable and no chances left for portugal we heard from man of the match himself just before he got all the way back to the hotel i want to predict we feel privileged to be here today i think one of the main principles of our teams to train hard to not to show off so that we can achieve the best results for our country and also to show salute our see the other team you soldiers because that's what school soon about portugal's number one player if not the world's number one
player. chris channeling although it was so disappointed that he didn't even make a stop to talk to the journalists well you may imagine what kind of feelings he's going through right now and on thursday well we'll find out who will make it to the final to face chile that's going to be germany or mexico we will next in a few months time i can tell you but a suite in the set to conduct its biggest military exercise in twenty years it coincides with russia holding large scale drills as well but there's a third of the end of the pipeline too and it's on a very different mission there described as the first peacekeeping war games thirty swedish and russian activists is set to take part in a two day exercise called island seventeen with a goal of deescalating any hypothetical conflict when we see that there is more and more tension between two countries there would be bigger pressure on all all voices of peace we somehow have to be prepared if this is collation continues that means
we somehow have to be prepared when it becomes more difficult to speak up or be so what we are doing our stories that we are preparing voices of bees to stand up for themselves and make sure that their voices are heard phil and former ambassadors russia suspects of peace groups event though is a moscow ploy to sway public opinion is what the organizer thinks of that claim he wants to claim that we are something that we are not because he wants us he wants to show that we are agents of a foreign power like as soon as you stand up for peace people within your own country will say that you're a traitor. but you so much work for the other side it's not twenty five of moscow thanks being with us this is all to international on kevin know it all on news twenty four seven of course.
what politicians do you show up to suggest. they put themselves on the line. to get acceptable reject. so when you want to express interest or somehow want to. have to go right to be first to see what the full story of the whole can't be good that i'm interested in the waters. or should. i think david cameron was so convinced that he would. have to keep the british people would forget. that he felt justified in taking the gum and i think that was an irresponsible well i think he was playing russian roulette with british future
