the headline international in syria the u.s. led coalition. is the interest of nato allies in the country. to be a. normal childhood. and one of america's top universities which prides itself on its work with the indigenous community is refusing to budge as
4:01 am
a native american tribe claims. team here a very warm welcome to you. relations between nato allies america. again in the spotlight after the u.s. led coalition forces exchanged with turkish backed rebels in the syrian city of. unfolded. the u.s. has found itself between a rock and a hard place in syria namely between kurdish and turkish forces both of whom are supposed to be american allies but consider one another anime's and it seems tensions are on the rise with a coalition spokesperson revealing that u.s. backed forces exchanged fire with pro turkish rebels not once but several times in
4:02 am
recent weeks when patrolling areas held by the forces turkey supports. patrols that have been conducting patrols in the area to keep tensions down received multiple times over the course of the last two weeks now the u.s. has told turkey to pass on to the rebels they support that firing on u.s. led coalition forces is quote not acceptable adding that patrols will continue and warning that coalition forces are always prepared and ready to defend themselves if need be which is not exactly the kind of dialogue you'd expect between two major powers meant to be important friends and allies but the reality of the situation is that northern syria is now a metaphorical minefield of possible clashes with conflicting alliances that could unravel at the slightest misstep.
4:03 am
turkey remains a nato ally and an important part partner in the fight against dash we expect both those relationships those multilateral ation ships to continue. going to continue to work with the white b.g. as a part of. syrian democratic forces. america i told you many times you either side with us or those terrorist organizations you haven't had a good grasp of them and that's why the region is turned into the sea. up till now america has more or less managed to navigate the murky waters between the turks and kurds even deploying a number of troops to northern syria months ago with a specific task to turn the two parties from attacking one another but that effort
4:04 am
has met with little success leaving few surprised in the wake of these recent skirmishes and fact conflicts like this one have been a long time coming if it's and then american military advisers go too far fusees would not kill american. carriers over there. by accident if you rockets can hit them now the u.s. was of course never invited into syria but rushed in anyway perhaps without fully understanding the lay of the land. now washington finds itself trying to keep peace between its own partners all the while distracting from the real enemy at hand i saw just on google r.t. washington d.c. or turkey specialist emory callus gun believes the interests of washington and i'm correct in syria on no longer the same. there might be two things on the table first of all there's a lot of corp between the two sites basically turkey doesn't inform the americans
4:05 am
or do i said or so or the second option might be this might be a mistake and of course there's a third option which is more dangerous that turkey does not control the. animal today in dejan united states and americans interest on not any more overlapping because for the future of syria turkey iraq turkey is interest or quite different than the american ones the battle to force myself from war torn iraq has devastated civilian lives in parts of the country the children particularly affected in fact even before the liberation of most all of the battle for tal afar the number of young stars desperately in need of help exceeded five million there are no present day figures but it's expected that number is now much higher. but i guess the reports. these children have seen more bloodshed and agony than most adults will in
4:06 am
a lifetime nearly ninety percent of children have lost a member of a family either they were kidnapped or killed and when they were escaping from the fight many of them have lost family members they were shot at from behind or falling on booby traps it has been a horrible experience soon as helicopter flies. dropping down on the floor and crying some of them my some of them feel when they see for a mess some of them feel when they see you know people that they are not comfortable in with some of them shut up and say no what for quite a long time until they could actually opened up definitely they go all the extreme distress and also physically unfortunately many of them are wounded. many of the hospitals we visit confirmed that. the biggest number of civilians they have
4:07 am
in the hospitals are children traumatized in mind and body but alive lucky by local standards though let's be frank stuck in orphanages and refugee camps in iraq and you believe given the sheer magnitude of the problem thousands and thousands of orphans are little. do you believe you can adequately help them we are helping those sold and we see certainly we don't have enough resources the children are almost everywhere but ultimately the support comes from family from government and the extended family that once we connect children they are everybody scheme to receive them and the support of the problem is making the connection go to all of these orphans iraqi. so many foreign children of isis fighters. it is much better of foreign children were reunited with their
4:08 am
families they will have problems here with documents in schools with health care they need their families love problems is putting it lightly in iraq tribal culture venerates blood feuds and revenge isis harmed millions there are those who would use these children who hate them for what their parents did. vulnerable for abuse they are vulnerable for trafficking. or for. any danger that children are exposed to in today's technology any. bad group. could get those children and harmed them some of these lost children a raped their assaulted abused and abandoned killed for their organs hated for the sins of their fathers the un and you do what they can to protect them but
4:09 am
there are too many getting them out is a reward unto itself. we helped identify and reunite a number of these shoulder and yet it isn't straightforward unicef for example once these kids identities protected fearing stigma or exploitation we know we tell our children. if we do not allow our children to normalize tensions that we did not know how do we think of allowing a child that had gone through a. crisis. it's a choice you can shoe their faces for everyone to see and let their relatives
4:10 am
recognize them pray that they find them themselves one desperate young refugee among the rocks medians. from iraq this is r.t. international a top u.s. universities on the defensive after a native american tribe and supporters set up a protest camp on his premises insisting the land was stolen from them hundreds of years ago and now they want it back. everything possible. we're just in this. we want this. and. brown university is considered one of the most liberal in the elite ivy league
4:11 am
group of universities and colleges and so as it prides itself on its work with students from the minority community now the university even conducted a study investigating its historical relationship to slavery. taken action to rewrite its official history accepting the role of slavery in the development of the institution again now aims to enroll more african american students and also claims warm relations with local indigenous tribes and host annual meetings to raise awareness about minority group issues and it made headlines after renaming the federal holiday columbus day to that over indigenous people's day last year however when it comes to the tribes there mons the university is refusing to budge . the pope cannot get tribe is not recognized by the federal government or more importantly by the other federally recognized indigenous communities there is an important technical difference between holding need of ancestry and holding nation status and that is at the heart of the issue here the encampment has already been
4:12 am
on the campus for more than one week the tribe insists its staying there and is also taking the case to court the co-founder of the code pink activist group things the dispute shows the universities are progressive stances more likely a facade talk is cheap it certainly is the in thing now or corporations university. sports associations to talk that talk about and have progressive they are to adopt the language. but when the call is for land to be given bag or for reparations to be made for slavery or anything that involves actual financial restitution that's where they draw the line. the german chancellor has found herself being heckled at a campaign rally with the general election in just under one month time crowds time
4:13 am
angry when i call proclaimed that germany is a more colorful place when diversity is increased. to be sure. when it comes to tough crowds this was probably around the toughest i think i've ever seen a certainly a sitting politician receive one of their own rallies just as soon as i go in merkel opened her mouth and said hello brandenburg she was greeted with an absolute chorus of boos and whistles her supporters certainly being drowned out with any applause and at times the chancellor's own statements been dampened by the cough cough and that was coming from the crowd earlier on tuesday though angler merkel had a much more well of hospitable stage to speak to the german people from she was talking
4:14 am
to the gathered press. and you all summer press conference in it she touched on a number of issues relations with poland and turkey neither of which are pretty really very good right now here in germany border controls throughout the end zone and she also said that she did not regret any decisions that she made back in twenty fifteen with relation to the migrant crisis and her opening of the borders to people to come here to germany she said that when it came to the major decisions she would make them all exactly the same again that's all well and good now but in the very recent past she has said something very different the sentence we can do this is part of my political work but so much has been read into this every day expression it has become a simple motto in the discussion around it has turned into an unproductive endless loop we didn't embrace the problem in an appropriate we the reason for that seeming change of heart may well be the polls angle or merkel certainly didn't receive
4:15 am
a very good reception in brandenburg on tuesday evening but if you look at the polls from across the country she's sixteen to seventeen points ahead depending on who you look at and. at that moment it doesn't look like a nearest challenges the social democrats and the martin schultz and going to get anywhere near despite angela merkel being almost nailed on to win it according to the polls after the reaction she received in brandenburg on tuesday night the month can seem very long in politics indeed artie's put the role of a reporting right there well the british government now admitting that it can't deport you hardest so i will shed some light on that in just.
4:16 am
oh there are already.
4:17 am
i should join us here on our britain's failing to deport foreign terrorists because it's quote too expensive an explosive report ordered by the government admits this to use an associate finds out why. the terror threat level in the u.k. is that severe discrepancies in the system set up to tackle terrorism are continually highlighted britain has been hit by four terrorist attacks in recent months and in three of those the attackers were known to the authorities one of the tools available to the u.k. in its fight against extremism is called deportation with assurances meaning suspects can be expelled if guarantees are in place they won't be treated badly
4:18 am
back home centrally this could mean potential threats won't be able to be sent back to countries like syria libya sudan or yemen a report published this summer ordered by theresa may when she was home secretary has highlighted of variety of cracks in the system only eleven people have been deported under this scheme and over twelve years in comparison france has deported one hundred and twenty the report also mentions the process is costly and complicated britain can only handle negotiations with two countries at a time although the u.k. home office argues it's actually up to four and that cost isn't an issue deportation with assurances remains a valuable policy which allows us to remove those who threaten to do us harm while meeting international human rights obligations authors of this latest report claim over forty foreign terrorist convicted in the u.k. have avoided to partition using existing human rights laws including those freed after serving their sometimes shortened sentences such as the hottest with links to
4:19 am
the failed july twenty first lot in two thousand and five on the legal aid and clearly that's a cost to the country on top of the general costs of security and it's not in some ways one might say it's not the most effective use of sketchy. sources in relation to creating security but never the us at the moment unless. we decide that we are going to deport someone in breach of the european convention on human rights which we haven't decided to do and we haven't decided at the moment as you know to withdraw from the convention then we have to continue going through the legal process as it stands the last prominent deportation case won by the government cost taxpayers one point seven million pounds back in twenty thirteen but it's understood that no successful deportations have been carried out under this system since. r.t.e. london twenty fourth here in moscow teachers in british schools are increasingly reporting cases of possible radicalization among students it comes amid widespread
4:20 am
criticism of a government initiative called prevent which is aimed at combating the problem to prevent a strategy was introduced back in two thousand and six with three main objectives challenging ideology of supporting terror protecting vulnerable people and that also supporting sectors at risk of radicalization however critics claim it alienates muslim communities and impacts human rights and freedom of expression earlier we discussed this with the founder of mothers against radical islam and shari'a tony bugel. from the muslim council of britain. well first of all i think that the numbers are actually that they're probably a lot higher because we have to ask ourselves how many are not being reported i think if these concerns are being brought forward by teaches them it's a real concern and one that we have to take very seriously and it's something that needs to be addressed now because it essentially is child abuse there is no other way of looking if you take a child and you teach a child that much hatred that to me is an awful thing to be teaching any child some
4:21 am
of us are rightly concerned about the integrity of our country rightly concerned about the security of our people and rightly concerned about the issue of radicalization and terrorism get carried away by the perceived view of muslims and islam in this country i think what we need to recognize is that as a general thing to say i really get tired of this whole you or me don't know months where that was on the morning of a plane that's i would say you do do you come out with this rhetoric of the some kind of which on this is hatred towards muslims the problem is these things are happening and when anybody says anything about it the first thing we're told is that we're islamophobia the fight against radicalization and terrorism is a fight of all of ours muslims non muslims all ally and therefore we have to be extremely careful that we do not create a condition and
4:22 am
a narrative in which all muslims are seen as suspect sometime that is what happens now i'm sorry if he offends people that we need to take this very seriously he needs to be dealt with and i would also to help why is it your community isn't doing more muslim community is doing whatever it can and should do but we as a community has no greater responsibility than any other section of the society i see it again it is all of ours and we all have to fight and yes it was ideology and initiative had all. you say we need to be careful i say let's stop being careful and let's actually address this problem properly and tackle it head on without fear because that's what stops political correctness and fear is what stops us from actually addressing this problem. a report by swedish police has revealed that in less than two years there's been a dramatic increase in so-called no go zones across the country while officials use
4:23 am
the term vulnerable areas the problems in the districts heavily populated by migrants remain the same. oh god if you are. that. you need to make clear shift in direction we cannot continue in this direction ten
4:24 am
more years so i didn't used to do more we need to do more we need to focus on the serious here the problem is that cultural differences and that these immigrants who come to sweden to not want to integrate or some don't want to integrate we see this in is traditionally many of the european countries where they have taken a lot of immigrants we don't see it in for example poland or hungary but in germany in this country where i live in denmark we also have no courtrooms in copenhagen for example and in sweden also so especially in the places where they have taken in a lot of immigrants we see these problems also in france and belgium and in sweden government people didn't want to admit that this is actually a problem so they were did don't want to mention. these nobles some say no it's. the police report puts the number of vulnerable areas across sweden sixty

one up to five thousand criminals are believed to be living in them making up some two hundred criminal networks currently active that. a gross living in one such hotspot describes what life is like. if you run a company in this area insurance companies do not want to insure you one of the basic requirements for becoming a successful entrepreneur is safety but the risk is quite big today if your life is at risk money does not help. in tbilisi thrown into these people have not been taken care of by society society needs to keep the youth busy make it difficult for them to end up in trouble they are being used by adults and in the past three years it has become like this they sell drugs openly they carry weapons.
4:26 am
there has been quite a lot of shooting very brutal mistreatment of entrepreneurs' a lot of robbery so the entrepreneurs have decided to change jobs or move to another area the international russian foreign minister said a good laugh it off is in cuts out to discuss the syrian crisis and the country's economic blockade is already bad for the country's emir and the official talks taking place behind closed doors there is a common. trip to the middle east in trouble to cut out from the united arab emirates which is part of a saudi led blockade against qatar. the foreign ministers that are expected to meet with us. here on the channel will be bringing you that press conference live next hour. with the rest of your wednesday well news headlines that we. go to.

time after time saying we're going underground on the day of the richest horse race in british history the epsom darby coming up at today's show is brussels backing corbin we speak to the fall of vice chair of the conservative party about trump and paris and whether the european commission is trying to manipulate the u.k. general election and we ask a defeated london mayoral candidate zac goldsmith who is contesting a key marginal constituency at next week's u.k. election why the riddle costings in the conservative manifesto don't look back in anger ahead of tomorrow's ariana grande their benefit gig legendary filmmaker and journalist john pilger on whether a smoking gun connects to raise a made for the manchester atrocities all the civil coming up in today's going underground but first could the next week's general election be even more exciting albeit with more human life or death consequences than today's darby race to the south west of london to raise amazing company tories have you turned on their
4:30 am
manifesto even before the election and they've reportedly seen the biggest swing away from a party in the lead in history jeremy corbyn meanwhile has been deserted by most of his parliamentary colleagues because presumably none of them believe in the policies he and his close knit leadership has advocated over the course of his campaign according to opinion polls which have been consistently wrong of late jeremy corbin's party leads the tories by maybe fifty seven percent when it comes to young people while if only the old could vote to raise them a would win a landslide in scotland where a scottish labor leader favors old style tony blair new liberalism labor appears to face a wipe out from the s. and p. let alone even the tories but there are some questions that few of asked in this general election campaign take this from a state mandated b b c this week which is already being done for by. against corbin frail weak and fighting for their lives.
4:31 am
these are the faces of yemen's latest crisis tens of millions of civilians face calamity but who is to blame the b.b.c. appears to suggest the catastrophe is natural britain's channel four news goes further the strongest evidence we've seen has actually been in had data it was from a bomb that was dropped in twenty sixteen on a containing food containing rise on the markings we could see afterwards indicated that bomb was manufactured in the u.k. in may twenty fifteen twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen two years when tourism a was in government so why does mainstream media not confront the incumbent government ahead of the election especially since jeremy corbyn for labor let alone the s. and p. and ukip of the lib dems have all lost questions about the devastating impact of juries amaze arms selling policies and aid that contributes to the conflict well we spoke to labor's shadow chief secretary to the treasury peter doubt about saudi arms on wednesday's show later we caught up with someone responsible for aid in the british government former secular state for international development and the
4:32 am
former vice chair of the conservative party andrew mitchell we spoke to him just as news of donald trump's decision to renegotiate a new paris climate deal was hit in the was and let's just quickly begin on these reports the donald trump is going to renege on the paris climate deal what's your reaction but i think it will be deeply regrettable. the rules and the changes that was set in paris which was a remarkable achievement having gauge tremendously with the chinese for making great progress of america to turn its back on that i think it will be a terrible thing to happen but one should remember two things i think first of all is that there has been disagreement in the trunk family about these matters and we must hope that they are not yet decided and secondly of course in america individual states have a role to play and so it would not have. be the disaster that it first appears but it would be a retrograde step given the tremendous amount of agreement that was achieved in paris was good to break the drays ways that all these acts are being deliberately
4:33 am
term terrific result of the general election will take place only the german referring to voices emanating from brussels and european commission's was is now saying that the date of the beginning of negotiations may change german corben is elected next week what's your reaction well the british public the voting public in britain are being asked to make up their minds who is going to negotiate this very difficult agreement and my proposition to my constituents and the proposition which i think we face in britain is we need the best possible people to negotiate that tough agreement and in my view it is not daschle to reason may and david davis they are already very deeply immersed in all of this and i profoundly hope that it will be those two who are negotiating for britain after the eighth of june it doesn't make any difference to the longer term to prepare the some of these utterances from
4:34 am
the commission i think i'm helpful to everybody the date has been set eleven days after the election if the commission was to change that or if a different incoming government was to change that that is a matter for them maybe not in the killing of very medieval with the individuals which we in the general election campaign it's no emerging with the home office at all the british newspaper them inquiry under the aegis of then whom sacred to raise them a commission by david cameron into the funding of jihad this is the his group never be published is that because the resume has always supported saudi backed islamist groups some groups maybe even that are implicated in the manchester atrocity. i'm sure it is not and i can't possibly comment on that in any respect to talk because i have no knowledge of it but i think you are right the. palling atrocity. which has been condemned around the world was a terrible experience clearly for everyone and matched all those for involved but
4:35 am
above all for the attack on innocent children and joining a night out for which there can be no possible defense anywhere at any time yet but of course it's become an election issue because coburn is related to foreign policy what do you make of the spectators peter oborne has been on this show saying british citizens run down to the encourage you traveled to libya to fight in the civil war to get rid of gadhafi in the war of course supported by tourism well i don't think there were any courage meant people to travel to libya those days i was in the cabinet at the time libya was an extremely dangerous place and the british intervention was a humanitarian intervention to save the lives of thousands of people in benghazi who faced a bloody massacre at the hands of gadhafi and that was the reason for what was essentially from britain a humanitarian intervention would have supported the rebels which is robel goes on to say we didn't cause you would have only six terrorist suspects released from controlled is to restrain them. it was released by to resume to them travel to
4:36 am
libya and back maybe throw a ball is an outstanding british journalist and we live in an open country where these things are evaluated under hers but i'm in no doubt having been part of the cabinet the intervention in libya was right above all because it was a humanitarian intervention designed to save lives the failure at the end of the campaign to build a new libya was because the all the efforts of the international community under united nations leadership with very strong backing from britain came to nothing because there was no peace to stabilize and in order to have that sort of stabilization and build a new stability you do require a peace which tragically never materialized in libya so it was a tourism a wins that may destroy in that case it was the richest country in africa destroyed the country was on the tourism and i think one of the first things that resume said when she became prime minister was that the era of interventions in
4:37 am
afghanistan and iraq those sort of interventions was over it was a point she emphasized in one of her first speeches and i don't see any reason why that policy is like change under mitchell thank you. another tory we spoke to after our interview on wednesday with labor's shadow chief secretary to the treasury was the defeated london mayor all candidate zac goldsmith who is contesting his old seat in richmond park a key module constituency in south west london at next week's general election back thanks for being on going underground again we had the secretary of the treasury on recently and he said why is it the tories haven't published. the accounts for this manifesto they're putting forward to the british lecture at this election you have to ask him that question i wasn't responsible for putting the manifesto together i have a battle here in richmond park a move right down to the why one of the few seats that will probably determine the outcome of this election is my job is to try. ensure that i win here the reason i
4:38 am
get the majority she needs because without that majority i don't see how she can i don't think she will easily be able to negotiate a couple points and she supported you should be in a supporting role but a list of the candidates at the end of this segment to how helpful was a dimension tax in the or a chance to win no doubt my view is that the policy was poorly explained and that it does does no doubt has caused a look just leninist policy taking the assets away from that thing that i think bush was a i think that it was poorly explained to such an extent that it became very easy for opponents to scam on and it was there's no doubt that there are people have knocked on doors and the people who believe that they're just simply by dint of being old are going to lose their homes the reality is that the proposal which is not a complete proposes as she made clear but the proposal is an improvement on the current situation at the moment you can lose everything down to a loss twenty three thousand if you end up in a cab him under the proposals that in the manifesto you lose up to your last one
4:39 am
hundred thousand pounds is more than four times better from that point of view there will be a cap i can't tell you what that cap will be i wish i could i'd love to be able to tell residents what that will be i imagine the cap will be around seventy to eighty thousand pounds which is more that's what the donut. proposals. suggested and i think there was a consensus more or less around that figure but it's not for me to predict because i don't know if you're going to resume his chief of staff nick timothy's finished no i didn't and i think that this is i think the policy could have been better explained and i think the party you know obviously in the election you don't get everything right. and it's a it is a snap election it's a quick one but things like that do you have an absolute you have an eye for you maybe a political party that hasn't hasn't missed explained the policy at some point during a campaign what is there why is there things like the need for voters to have id when they go to the polling booth why is that in the manifesto there is there have been many. cases of fraud and i don't see why it's such
4:40 am
a controversial proposal i mean we need to. i think eventually we're going to move to different systems voting in any case and you probably have an electronic voting but before you can begin to move in that direction you've got to make sure that the opportunity to fool is as close to eliminated as it's possible to be what about these changes in the manifesto from what minister said the man of his years as a radical welfare reform where is d.w.b. sector damian green only recently said no more welfare cuts what does it mean for the radical welfare reform doesn't necessarily mean cuts i mean is it two separate issues and i think that the majority of the reforms that are needed. either done happened or they are happening now trying to create a universal system which makes it easier for people you know take the so-called bedroom tax for example rezin a little support for people who are on waiting lists to get homes but equally. you know there have been cases where people have wanted to change one's wanted to downsize have not been able to and it's still faced the penalty that's how the
4:41 am
policy i'm certain that that is not what was intended by that policy said you know there's a does it as policies play out into imprudent to find she needs to meet him and one of the jobs of an m.p. of a good m.p. at least is to pick up on where these things are happening take it back to ministers and what and find today and that is that is the job of any good m.p. regardless of what party they belong to predict the controversial bedroom tax but it's a use of words in the matter give us give you that example any of this is an example that people understand sure ok but in the manifesto it says for instance that i mean previously trey's may said no hard border between north and south island my fester says as fiction lists a border as possible and what why these different i mean a manifest room which is a man has been saying i think that's probably a reflection of the fact that we don't know what the final outcome of the brits and the gauche asians are going to look like and you know it's not that there is a maze holding the cards close to a chest it's a case that you know if i were negotiating with you to buy this bottle of water i mean i have an idea of what i'd pay you have not. what you do except that neither
4:42 am
of us know where you can each of us is coming and we negotiate that's what happens we want to have a situation where we have as clean a relationship between north more than on in the rest of on it as possible that eventually looks like i don't know but it should be here that it shouldn't be hard border i don't know region of george osborne to any advisory role here because you always been slamming your immigration policy as economically illiterate i mean is and i'm not the person is recruiting advisers to government i wish i were of the kind of well we don't know what your role will but i will i can tell you that i macand cheese can you know campaigning for you here to see really matters and it matters a lot but i cannot so that kind of question clearly and i can i could i could i could guess but it would not be healthy to do so but you know even on immigration the thing that i think most people agree on in the polity is that we need control of raw borders but there's a lot of discussion and even disagreement about what kind of immigration policy or what immigration policy should look like i mean my view is that the students learning has should not be included in the target i've always been i think we
4:43 am
should have as many foreign students as possible as long as they're studying in the jets in the universities. because i think they have to walk the country that they had to stay here and do incredibly well they go home they form a little bridge between our countries and that's a healthy thing that's a difference of opinion rather people in the party who disagree very strongly that the parliament is a battle of ideas and i hope to be about a few days time taking part in the back of ideas like ultimate thank you very much other candidates in the richmond pa constituency etc only for the liberal democrats kate jewett of labor peter jewel of ukip will be speaking to a live demo candidate for twickenham vince cable this coming monday after the break britain's west terra trustees and seventy seven we all join pill just britain's foreign intelligence services were complicit in the magister attack all the civil coming of a bad joke going underground. welcome
4:44 am
to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive immunoglobulin my body gets. produced. around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity. because it helps people. this applies more. to put money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plans much smaller. you know. what are the risks of a donation. there is proof that the frequency of pathologies is much higher paid. if i was. over two years old.
4:45 am
and who runs the blood business. welcome back ahead of next week's u.k. general election jeremy coleman is fending off accusations that he is a terrorist as well as a pacifist but the legendary journalist and filmmaker john pilger has just written an article arguing that the causes of an atrocity commemorated tomorrow at the one loveman just a consulate in england are being suppressed to protect secrets of u.k. foreign policy the smoking gun he argues in terror in britain what did the prime minister know is that theresa may was british home secretary when libyan islam is group members were allowed to travel across europe john pilger his latest film is the coming war and china joins me now john thanks for coming on before we go on to . say in your piece your reaction to the atrocity in afghanistan america's longest war it's horrific but predictable i mean the extraordinary. the thing about
4:46 am
afghanistan that afghanistan was invaded on a lie the the devastation caused by the invasion in two thousand and one had this terrible ripple effect right across the country so here is one of the seven wars the longest war that the west now has fought in the modern era sixteen years one of barack obama's seven wars. and what britain is still with five hundred troops why and dad it was it was late labor's war will be it not well it wasn't a delay it was war and it was it was very much tony blair's war it was one of his four horses and gordon brown's war i mean the two parties in this country in terms of the there are the. four for a foreign policy that is violent a sometimes indistinguishable well let's get to what jayson may said of the
4:47 am
manchester atrocity as he said we struggled to comprehend it but we can continue to take on and defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence what do you make of what you raise a make said well it doesn't make any sense because what the manchester atrocity. demonstrated as indeed the july the seventh two thousand and five bombing of the london underground demonstrated is that the rock of british foreign policy is briefly lifted and we see the cause and effect i mean it's not that's not an opinion you only have to look at the the or all the establishment. organizations from from chatham house right through to the joint intelligence committee. there is almost a unanimous. it's the unanimous understanding that what these atrocities like
4:48 am
manchester and london in two thousand and five what they have it in common is that they are the product of british foreign policy of being where we shouldn't be and it's this basic truth and it is a truth that has become beyond sayable in this election the unsayable by to reason mahen the whom sable by germany colp and i mean jeremy coburn has said that the war on terror in his opinion has failed but even doing a little r. is cool been said that he was immediate us about excusing terror what links possible links if we look at it at the bench as your example take me can you trace between dres amazin secretary and the atrocity well for one thing this group the libyan islamic. fighting group l.-i she has been
4:49 am
in manchester for something like twenty years according to french intelligence it was british intelligence the tried to get these so law fests or what hobbyists as as they are in manchester to assassinate colonel gaddafi they are in plec oblio were implacably anti kadafi they were quite dangerous people some of them a number of them were under control orders and when in two thousand and eleven. the united states and france and britain and eventually nato invaded libya which they do plan to do anyway africa's largest producer of oil these to loftus wahabi is in manchester known as the manchester boys were told they could go to libya raise them a stamp there possible to allow them to to go. i don't know i don't know i don't
4:50 am
know whether she did that it doesn't work like that but it was the argument blair was and he used to argue well i didn't see it you know what jack straw said i didn't see it but they are the people ultimately responsible she was the home secretary and i went here a minister. responsible for those control orders and they were lifted by m i five one of them to said talks about going to heathrow airport where he stopped by counterterrorism police and he gives them a name a number an m i five they call it he sits there white and they say all that's fine for i know if you go to battle. they want to do overthrow gadhafi and these people we used how do you think if it's in the debate he may have traveled to syria from as a british subject as well to support what in effect was the british position just to support the rebels that was the route through once gadhafi was overthrown. these
4:51 am
people who now were. at the very least al qaeda affiliated were on their way to syria that was the next stop and so many of the libya the manchester boys if you like to use it you never ended up in syria fighting the west war or fighting the west the efforts to wave or throw the government of a sad he was the next one. these it's a complicated story most certainly but it has strands running through it and the strongest strand is the support of powerful western governments like the british government the u.s. government the french government for what they call assets for these terrorist assets if a b.b. was known to the authorities why was he able to do what he did and it's quite interesting to see that now we have. in contrast to
4:52 am
a leak from the united states last year which caused a great deal of panic and wide hole that produced pictures of the apparent detonate at that use but now we've gone back to the original learned wolf spin. the police are saying. it was just an ordinary criminal really petty and tell. i was gonna take no more no more than the hello everyone and almost certainly he built the bomb himself so the original spawn story which is so proud and transparently nonsense has been given to us again but when you look at the faces of the twenty two dead children in manchester you could surely understand why you can't compute in the heads of journalism the news room that even the possibility that some of the baby could have been a british government asset well of course but when you look at the faces of children who have been bombed in some dusty rocky scabrous
4:53 am
village in yemen lined up before they are buried can you then think that the cluster bombs or the hellfire missiles whatever killers children originated in this country. the product originated and the collaboration and we have in yemen now british military advisors in riyadh assisting the saudis with their bombing raids in yemen that is having a devastating effect on the children of that country all children all people have a right to life and i don't think there should be any discrimination but we need to find out why this terrible event with its devastating human consequences happened in manchester do you think drazen a obviously may have been home secretary when m i five allegedly dropped their investigation into the baby but then on the other hand presumably the intelligence they were going to go on that would say there are so many jihad is now in this
4:54 am
country so many of them is in this country that therefore they don't have the time to follow anyone so don't come to any conclusions that the mentioned before they don't work as they or they don't if they have the don't have the time. i mean they are a security organization. this l.-i f.-e. group has been around for some plague like twenty years but it is it's a strategy of been it's absolutely perscribe ization by look or just government describes prescriptivist private and describes it it's a it is wanting to build this extreme islamic state across the world and that it follows inspired by al qaida suggests that probably now inspired some of the members inspired by isis who knows about. the point was that this community from which it appears it appears and we are not absolutely certain that
4:55 am
some on the bt came was well known to the security services in britain. and. certainly some of those who went to libya in two thousand and eleven were encouraged to do so. by the security services because the aim was to overthrow gadhafi and that happened when david cameron went there and all the crowds were cheering among those crowds no doubt with some of the the man just the boys there were a lot of al qaeda inspired people there as well and many of those people were trained by the british s.a.'s. this web of collaboration for oxy power in the middle east invariably will produce this kind of violence and what we've seen since nine eleven is that the violence has come home and it's come home not only to the united states it's come home to
4:56 am
this country it is very briefly no one got into trouble for british funding of al qaeda image editing in afghanistan do you expect anyone to get into trouble the british funding of what is the mists that ended up i would not just reference i mean the british role in afghanistan was was virtually the beginning of the british role in operation cycle which which was devised by zubrzycki who was president carter's so-called national security adviser and in the end through the copper and reagan is these these the fanatics the mujahideen the creation of. a kind of support structure for extremism that would would work on behalf of western powers got something like five hundred million dollars from the united states we know that to be true and we also know that the british security services were deeply involved all across afghanistan. right through
4:57 am
right up to the the western invasion and two thousand and one and then beyond that . and we have to take responsibility for it but it has to be debated like we're doing now it has to be discussed. we can't walk around with hands over i was. it's absurd that the people who died in manchester and the people who died on the london underground and the people who died in the twin towers and all those children in yemen and afghanistan on the other day does a better job thank you. hope you enjoyed that requested favorite show from the latest season of going underground we'll be back with another great season of going underground on saturday the second of september but till then keep in touch by social media we'll still be reading lol your communication with the team season.
4:58 am
but it was supposed to some of the. last time we chased. each one of them carrying twenty kilos of drugs. for stuff and stuff. that they just stepped right. into the family i mean the money. they have. for me. i don't know maybe they don't make or. break right.
4:59 am
now. it's seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any old belief yet to shape out just because the ticket and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
5:00 am
am. headlines on r.t. international in syria the us led coalition has exchanged gunfire with backed rebels in. the interests of nato allies in that country. after being saved from islamic state in iraq are still in search of a normal childhood. abuse. children. and one of america's top universities which prides itself on its work
5:01 am
with the indigenous community it's now we're fusing to budge as a native american tribe claims. here in moscow thanks for joining us this is our. relations between nato allies america and turkey are again in the spotlight after u.s. led coalition forces exchanged fire with turkish backed rebels near the syrian city of. unfolded. the u.s. has found itself between a rock and a hard place in syria namely between kurdish and turkish forces both of whom are supposed to be american allies but consider one another anime and it seems tensions are on the rise with a coalition spokesperson revealing that u.s. backed forces exchanged fire with pro turkish rebels not once but several times in
5:02 am
recent weeks when patrolling areas held by the forces turkey supports. patrols that have been conducting patrols in the area to keep tensions down received multiple times over the course of the last two weeks now the u.s. has told turkey to pass on to the rebels they support that firing on u.s. led coalition forces is quote not acceptable adding that patrols will continue and warning that coalition forces are always prepared and ready to defend themselves if need be which is not exactly the kind of dialogue you'd expect between two major powers meant to be important friends and allies but the reality of the situation is that northern syria is now a metaphorical minefield of possible clashes with conflicting alliances that could unravel at the slightest misstep.
5:03 am
he remains a nato ally and an important part partner in the fight against dash we expect both those relationships there's more to our relationships to continue. going to continue to work with the white b.g. as a part of. syrian democratic forces. because i told you many times you either side with us terrorist nations you haven't had a good growth and that's why the region you see. up till now america has more or less managed to navigate the murky waters between the turks and kurds even deploying a number of troops to northern syria months ago with the specific task of deterring
5:04 am
the two parties from attacking one another but that effort has met with little success leaving few surprised in the wake of these recent skirmishes in fact conflicts like this one how little long time coming if you did send them erica military advisers go too far our forces would not kid american. whether kerry's out there all of a sudden by accident if you rockets can hit them now the u.s. was of course never invited into syria but rushed in anyway perhaps without fully understanding the lay of the land. now washington finds itself trying to keep peace between its own partners all the while distracting from the real enemy at hand i saw just on google r.t. washington d.c. . so the russian foreign minister said he left office in qatar and giving a news conference with his account of bottom of the been. the let's listen in again we have cooperation in oil and gas.
5:05 am
investment corporation is picking up steam particular between the russians direct funding agency and its. agency we continue cultural. exchanges in particular in the run up to her to the. two thousand and eighteen in russia in two thousand and. twenty two qatar the defense minister for a visit to russia recently. as the two thousand seven hundred forum he held to go shares. russian and defense minister. and so it was evident for the interest of the contacts in this area we discussed the problems in syria libya iraq. we are of the same opinion
5:06 am
as each of these conflicts need to resolve based on dialogue. all these. religious groups need to be in. the know outside pressure. these countries need to shape their own future and certainly we are great to talk atari friends who are strays ings russia's role in promoting the concept deescalation zones in syria that fails to create favorable conditions for a political dialogue. we share our concerns and in the arab israeli conflict we believe that direct dialogue is the way forwards and again the . quartet involving russia the us the un. you.
5:07 am
spoken in favor of direct dialogue based on the arab initiative and certainly the palestinians need to come together they need tonight it's not normal to see what's happening between iran maligned garza strip we believe that palestinians need to go back to the green minutes that we reached earlier and certainly. according to those agreements. they need two knives being strong the liberation of nation and based on the arab peaceful peace initiative. and as my counterparts. we also discussed the situation in the gulf. nation of tension between tire and some other arab countries we are convinced that we need to be looking for a solution. based on
5:08 am
a mutually acceptable approach where you we don't need any aggressive believe sharon with a red streak we need to be looking for compromise and dialogue. has played the role of. mediator and if it's possible you know also contribute to this process. who we would like to see the gulf cooperation council to be strong united to contribute to the problems of the region there are plenty of them and we don't need yet another a conflict and we again appreciate the hospitality extended to our. qatari friends and i when vides my counterpart to visit russia. to. see
5:09 am
it. and i. well you're watching. international law the russian foreign minister making some comments with his counterpart the foreign minister mohammad that some of the issues are being discussed out of ultimately that of the gulf issue and the so-called. tensions in the region between saudi arabia. we'll have more details to come on this story. in the near future to tell you more details on that joint press conference. now the battle to force eisold from war torn iraq has devastated civilian lives in parts of the country with children particularly affected in fact even before the liberation in the battle for the number of youngsters desperately in need of help five million and there are no present day figures but that number is now expected to be much higher as are.
5:10 am
investigates. these children have seen more bloodshed and agony than most adults will in a lifetime nearly ninety percent of children have lost a member of a family either they were kidnapped or killed and when they were escaping from the fight many of them have lost family members they were shot at from behind or when they were falling on booby traps it has been a horrible experience. so this helicopter flies that are. dropping down on the floor and i'm carrying some of them my some of them feel when they see for a mess some of them feel when they see you know people that they are not comfortable with some of them shut up and say no what for quite a long time until they could actually opened up definitely they go all the extreme
5:11 am
distress and also physically unfortunately i'm one of them a wounded. many of the hospitals as we visit confirm that. the biggest number of civilians they have in the hospitals are children traumatized in mind and body but alive lucky by local standards though let's be frank stuck in orphanages and refugee camps in iraq and you believe given the sheer magnitude of the problem thousands and thousands of orphans with little. do you believe you can adequately help them we are helping those sold and we see certainly we don't have enough resources the children are almost everywhere but ultimately the support comes from family from government and the extended family that once we connect children they are everybody scheme to receive them and the support of the
5:12 am
problem is made. king the connection at all of these orphans iraq e so many a foreign children of isis fighters. and how big it is much better a foreign children were reunited with their families they will have problems here with documents in schools with health care they need their families love problems is putting it lightly in iraq tribal culture venerates blood feuds and revenge isis harmed millions there are those who would use these children who hate them for what their parents did. vulnerable for abuse they are vulnerable for trafficking. or for. any danger that children exposed to in today's technology any. bad group. could
5:13 am
get those children unharmed them some of these lost children a raped their assaulted abused and abandoned killed for their organs hated for the sins of their fathers the un and you do what they can to protect them but there are too many getting them out is a reward unto itself. we helped identify and reunite a number of these shoulder and yet it isn't straightforward uni set for example once these kids identities protected fearing stigma or exploitation we know we tell our children. if we do not allow our children to normalize tensions that we do not know how do we think of
5:14 am
allowing a child that have gone through the. crisis. to expose him to a big comma it's a hard choice you can show their faces for everyone to see and let their relatives recognize them or pray that they find themselves one desperate young refugee among the rocks millions more i guess. for many be iraq. brown university a member of america's elite i feel a group of universities and colleges house long put fixing historical injustice as one of its key priorities.
5:15 am
people took things. without permission that they were taking the communities they were taking. to be we use our. first. dog. but now the university is on the defensive after a native american tribe set up a protest camp on its premises insisting the land was stolen from them hundreds of years ago and now they want to back we've done everything possible by. the powers that be in this. we're just invisible and. this was our principle and no we want this to recruit to our. spiritual.
5:16 am
and hopefully. these things will come. round the claims warm relations with local indigenous tribes that host daniel meetings to raise awareness about minority group issues and it made headlines after renaming the federal holiday columbus day to battle for indigenous people's day this was last year however when it comes to the tribes demands the university is refusing to budge. well cannot get tribe is not recognized by the federal government or more importantly by the other federally recognized indigenous communities there is an important technical difference between holding need of ancestry and holding nation status and that is at the heart of the issue here the incumbent has already been on the campus for more than a week the tribe insists it's going to stay there it's also taken the case to court the co-founder of the code pink activist group thinks the dispute shows the university's progressive talk is more likely a bit of
5:17 am
a facade. talk is cheap it certainly could be anything now or corporations universities sports associations to talk that talk about and have progressive they are to doubt the language. but wait and that call is for land should be given back or for reparations to be made for slavery or anything that involves actual financial restitution that's where they draw the line you're joining us i fall for your world news plenty more to come including no go zones in sweden but backing them up.
5:18 am
in case you're new to the game this is how it works in our economy is built around corporation corporations from washington to washington controls the media the media our voters elected to business to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before .
5:19 am
i joining us so far here on r.t. international the german chancellor has found herself being heckled at a campaign rally with the general election in just under a month's time crowds turned angry when angela merkel proclaimed that germany's a more colorful place when diversity is increased. yes it is it is. it is. going. to be sure. when it comes to tough crowds this was probably around the toughest i think i've ever seen a certainly a sitting politician receive one of their own rallies just as soon as i go americal opened her mouth and said hello brandenburg she was greeted with an absolute chorus of boos and whistles her supporters certainly being drowned out with any applause
5:20 am
and it times the chancellor's own statements been dampened by the cock off and that was coming from the crowd earlier on tuesday though i had a much more well very hospitable stage to speak to the german people from she was talking to the gathered press. and you all some a press conference in it she touched on a number of issues relations with poland and turkey neither of which are pretty really very good right now here in germany border controls throughout the end zone and she also said that she did not regret any decisions that she made back in twenty fifteen with relation to the migrant crisis and her opening of the borders to people to come here to germany she said that when it came to the major decisions she would make them all exactly the same again that's all well and good now but in the very recent past she has said something very different the sentence we can do this is part of my political work but so much has been read into this every day
5:21 am
expression it has become a simple motto in the discussion around it has turned into an unproductive endless loop we didn't embrace the problem in an appropriate we the reason for that seeming change of heart may well be the polls angle merkel certainly didn't receive a very good reception in brandenburg on tuesday evening but if you look at the polls from across the country she's sixteen to seventeen points ahead depending on who you look at and. at the moment it doesn't look like a nearest challenges the social democrats and the martin schultz going to get anywhere near despite angle merkel being almost nailed on to win it according to the polls after the reaction she received in brandenburg on tuesday night the month can seem very long in politics indeed. and discussing various pressures are under the effect of that of anger merkel being very she's facing a bit of a tough road sort of a laughter off discussing this now in doha with his qatari counting on our citizens
5:22 am
and those who reside in qatar they don't have a nice you with. food certainly. had to pay a premium for it we had to do it and again it spurred the development of our train . companies had to look for alternatives. in terms of providing. our people with. food so we've achieved. a certain level of data diversification. and we see a lot of progress and qatar is dependent on our immediate neighbors. that introduce those illegal restrictions. now we are more open to international markets. how can. you.
5:23 am
try to use any new challenges that are thrown in its phase to. come up. some progress. with some is developed meant. it certainly like a does not something positive but the raw benefits indeed. and one of them is. the fact that qatar needs to realign its. forces in terms of food security in terms of the economy that's was a wake up call to us. believes that an open market economy. is the best paradigm and the crisis demonstrates that we can live up to all of our international commitments natural gas costs apply contracts have not been affected and everyone still thinks
5:24 am
that qatar he's a reliable partner in terms of supplying. g. . for local markets. on. these illegal restrictions. you know. will never never resulting political pressure on us we will not yield to that pressure we are open to other countries. try to stop iran from bringing food to us. another goodness. but again we've he's. a business. about conditions on our. companies and we believe that our legislation has become even
5:25 am
more appealing to divest mintz and investors need to be looking to invest in our country so certainly that's to help. speed up the development of the economy. certainly started. not. yes today but again right now we have the stronger police who will. will now to you or question the statement by the german counter-intelligence agency. and . that's why perhaps they want to demonstrate that they're efficient. there's no evidence no hard. to prove it that's for hard facts you know. the story that german chancellor merkel was tapped by. the obama administration but the counter intelligence service didn't mention
5:26 am
single word about it that's it. interesting comments there right here on r.t. international sort of a laughter off the russian foreign minister there in doha meeting with his guitar a counterpart ultimately a briefly touching down on the fact that reminding people that it was the american whose phone was bugged by the obama administration in the past year or two and then is a counterpart mohamed been. saying that the ultimately the food blockade against qatar has only made the country more self-sufficient more details to come your way at your leisure at r.t. dot com. now a report by swedish police has revealed that in less than two years there's been a dramatic increase in so-called no go zones across the country and the number of swedish officials call vulnerable areas has now reached sixty one according to the same report that up to five thousand criminals are believed to be living in them making up some two hundred criminal networks currently in effect there are other
5:27 am
problems in all the districts which are heavily populated by by migrants where the problems ultimately remain the same. my. they sell drugs openly they carry weapons i have heard that there are so many weapons in kissed that they could take over accused in a few hours. there has been quite a lot of shooting very brutal mistreatment of entrepreneur her a lot of property. if.
5:28 am
you need to make clear shift in direction we cannot continue in this direction ten more years to say i didn't used to do more we need to do more we need to focus on the serious here the problem is that cultural differences and that these immigrants who come to sweden to not want to integrate or some of them don't want to integrate we see this in is officially many of the european countries where they have taken a lot of immigrants we don't see it in for example poland hungary but in germany in this country where i live in denmark we also have no horse farms in copenhagen for example and they're in sweden also so especially in the places where they have taken in a lot of immigrants if we see these problems also in france and belgium and in
5:29 am
sweden the government people didn't want to admit that this is. actually of property so there we did don't want to mention there is no polls show most said it has no cold symptoms. it is a busy day for worldwide news here on r.t. international news continues at about. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turn some countries into pigs these are the countries with we can recall them is that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of low bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline almost a decade how good are the results she saw all of it then usually peaceful by the
5:30 am
people gathered in which the wider world get people to see what you are doing a choice. they believe will be you she thought it was i mean if a legal. challenge must deal with this young girl who is always think it she somehow they cannot get it. while the same measure is still in place to one of the consequences to weaken blue bird flu dispute over who will first do one of the suits the truth the consumer is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision making. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last bank turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me so i write these last words and helps to put to rest these things that i
5:31 am
never got off my chest. i remember when we first met. my life turned on each day. but then my feelings started to change you talked about more like it was a case still some marshawn to view those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it's one does not leave the funeral in the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with this one to. speak to us now we know what their take on. the claim that mainstream media has met its make. here's what people have been saying about rejected a knighthood to us exactly just pull on. the only show i go out of my way to find you know what it is that really packs a punch. yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are
5:32 am
apparently better than blue. i see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight president of the world bank so they can go right in a seriously send us an e-mail. hello and welcome to cross talk we're all things considered i'm peter lavelle fifty years ago the american naval vessel u.s.s. liberty was brutally attacked by israeli forces the attack on the liberty was one of the worst assaults ever carried out on a u.s. naval vessel in peacetime and committed by an allied country since then the survivors of this unprovoked attack have been seeking justice.
5:33 am
crosstalk in the u. . s.s. liberty i'm joined by my guest ken o'keefe in new york he is a political analyst and the ex u.s. marine who renounced us citizenship in greenville we have philip nelson he is the primary author of remember the liberty as well as author of two books on lyndon johnson and in lake jackson we cross to daniel mcadams he is the executive director of the ron paul institute for peace and prosperity all right gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want i always appreciate phil if i can go to you holding the book there in greenville you have written about this. just real quickly i know it's there's a lot of detail in the book is been told is very good but a lot of our viewers have never ever heard of this event so could you in a nutshell tell us what happened fifty years ago in the mediterranean go ahead.
5:34 am
well it's a long story and i'll try to condense it as best i can but it had to do with an attack that had been preplanned i believe for many months maybe two years in the planning yet it was. portrayed as being a spontaneous war and that egypt had attacked israel that was anything but the truth and in fact since then most of the subsequent leaders of israel admitted that manakin begun for example admitted that others. admitted that that it was that it had been provoked by israel against syria jordan and egypt for many months the everything came off the track when when the war commenced ten days early it was scheduled had been scheduled for months to start on june the fifteenth it started on june the fifth because of all these provocations that worked so effectively it was beyond their ex
5:35 am
expectations ok ok but. let's talk about the the attack itself what happened how this ship was attacked by israelis give us you know five major points what happened on that day go ahead ok on that on that day after surveilling the ship for several hours about six or seven hours starting at six in the morning. up to thirteen at least twelve or thirteen overflights of the ship some of those a thousand feet. by by different israeli aircraft. they were doing that for a purpose and i believe the purpose was to map out exactly where the strategy we're told that is what what vulnerable points ok there's not a before and how do you go on ok phil phil i want to get i want to get everybody in here because we got a lot to talk about here ken phillips the expert on what happened here but you know
5:36 am
again i want to stress here that this assault in peace time by alleged on an american naval vessel it's not part of popular culture or popular common knowledge and then there's a reason for that isn't that true go ahead ken. what yes if we could just recap briefly this attack took place over two hours on a clear blue sunny day this ship was an allied ship of israel the united states had been supporting israel hand and foot to that point so when the israelis were doing their overflights all the americans were waving to the israeli jets to the point they could actually see the pilots in the cockpits they were that close this attack occurred over about a two hour period thousands of rounds were fired fifty caliber machine gun napalm rockets they were brought in submarine they brought in torpedoes i believe four torpedoes were fired at the u.s.s. liberty one of them hit it was an act of god that the captain managed to avoid
5:37 am
three of the others if that one torpedo would hit fifteen inches over it would have hit the boiler room and that entire ship would have song another aspect of this is a blatant war crime whereby when the captain actually gave the order to abandon ship all of the life rafts that were launched in the water were shot out of the water by the israelis that is a patent war crime the real objective here was to frame egypt for having been responsible for this attack to kill every single member of that ship over two hundred and ultimately because they were not able to sink the ship the phantom jets that had been launched towards cairo which were nuclear armed were not able to be used but make no mistake about it i believe having read many of the details of this and read filled toney's actually book what i saw all that day that it is absolutely clear that the only thing that saved us from world war three at that time was the fact that ship did not sink and there were witnesses and it also brings up a very interesting subject about a russian ship that was in the area and may very well have staved off the sinking of the ship as well call this it was a late night attack it was
5:38 am
a false flag and it didn't go according to plan but daniel you know wouldn't when it's ever mentioned that read an article in just a few days ago it was a mistake it was an honest mistake that's what is being fed to publics right now whenever it cut pops up go ahead daniel. well certainly that's the word that came down from l.g. l.b.j. on down the you know the commission of inquiry the court of inquiry was told before the investigation what the conclusion was to be and i think he was quoted at least maybe apocryphally saying i'm not going to go to war or embarrass an ally for a few sailors so that was obviously from the top on down you know admiral admiral mccain the father of our great senator from arizona was obviously was involved in the coverup as well but make a good point earlier most of america doesn't know what happened i have to be honest i have to confess i didn't know anything about it until i was up on the hill probably fifteen years ago and someone dropped off a v.h.s.
5:39 am
how old it was yet what happened i put off watching it for a while because i had no idea what this was all about when you finally do watch and get the whole story it's extremely compelling why is it i mean it for me this is been a conspiracy of silence for fifty years i mean i know that you've worked with survivors i mean and philip giraldi and ray mcgovern you write eloquently about it and i'm very thankful for them but you know you guys are having a hard time getting your story out it's amazing go ahead fill. ok well the reason for that was because of the cover up there was a media immediately in vote by president johnson directing it to the joint chiefs to robert mcnamara to. john mccain the second the father of the center and it was so effectively and so brutally enforced all of the survivors were threatened with prison time if if they said a word about it to anybody including their wives their mothers their fathers and
5:40 am
anybody and right immediately after the attack after they were all they managed to survive this they were all dispersed throughout the world on different ships so that no two of them would be together anywhere and they were watched very closely to be sure that they did talk and that that cover up still persists today that's the reason ninety eight percent of the people have never heard of it and those who do have generally accepted the canard that it was was just an accident it was not never an actual can't plan for at least two years one of the interesting things ken is that the west liberty is the most decorated ship i think in an american naval history they gave them all the awards all of the acolytes but they did it in secret they did it behind closed doors i mean they got these they got some kind of recognition but absolutely zero public recognition because the true story would come out this is not
5:41 am
a mistake this was an intentional attack and the implications of that attack we feel to this very moment go ahead ken. yes indeed and there are court transcripts there are transcripts of tapes between israeli pilots and the command centers in israel in which the israeli pilots are actually says questioning the orders which are to attack because they understand very clearly that they are attacking an american ship and the orders are repeated by the command centers in israel to indeed attack the show. there is no accident here and where this becomes really relevant is that for a long time israel and the jewish supremacists how would it say tannic mass media that we have which pushes agendas like weapons of mass destruction which results in the death of a million to two million people in iraq a country completely devastated that same power structure remains in place from one nine hundred sixty seven to this day and the coverup of nine eleven and israeli mossad agents involved in nine eleven which is indisputable by any serious investigation remains the same in the real point here is that israel can do
5:42 am
anything including murdering thirty four american service members in cold blood and attempting to murder every single member of the u.s.s. liberty so as to justify a policy which would have sucked american sons and daughters into a third world war because israel does not have the integrity nor the courage or any kind of author whatsoever to go and attack its enemies itself it uses america and continues to use america as lambs to go off and fight their wars so that israel can expand this is the bigger issue and the u.s.s. liberty as long as the american people refuse to face this and actually make sure that justice is served we're going to continue to get more of the same but these false flag endeavors to sacrifice more and more americans and let us not forget the twenty two american service members a day that commits suicide because they've been sent off to fight israeli wars and you know daniel and when i when i understand the lyndon johnson's reaction the president the time he was a coward he was simply a coward. well he was
5:43 am
a politician so he gets to that saying sorry. i'm so repetitive yeah go ahead. but you know there is their business unfortunate taint you know and i think it's one way of keeping the conspiracy of silence there's a taint of some sort of anti semitism if you bring it up you know i just met a liberty survivor in april he was at one of our conferences here and you know this man had not an anti-semitic bone in his body what he cared about when the people he served with on that ship when he cared about is having some of knowledge meant of what happened some validation of their experiences for the historical record to be corrected that's what he's looking for and that's what's normal and that's the grotesqueness of this entire cover up is because it didn't allow these soldiers and these sailors to have closure that's why they suffer from p.t.s.d. times one hundred they couldn't even talk to their wives about it and that's the most cruel injustice i think of all ok gentlemen to jump in here we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion on the attack
5:44 am
on the u.s.s. liberty fifty years ago stay with our team. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive in. my body gets and some bodies that i cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity and does this because it helps people that's one of the side effects is that. this applies more. to put money on your car immediately. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plans much smaller.
5:45 am
and. one of the risks of a donation. then is proof that the frequency of pathology is much higher paid. if i was my. over two years old. and who runs the blood business. welcome back to cross like we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing the attack on the u.s.s. liberty fifty years ago.
5:46 am
ok phil i'd like to go back to you in greenville it seems to me and correct me if i'm wrong that the us the. turning a blind eye to this gross injustice done to the sailors of the u.s.s. liberty that it's seems to me an interesting point of departure because we have seen how the israeli lobby influences american foreign policy actually even drives that some people would say in the middle east so if you can get away with committing murder and i think that on the face of it that's exactly what it was committing murder and you can get away with it you can get away with just about anything else go ahead phil well that's true and it's obviously an atrocity that cannot be forgiven in any way but it's important to for me to stress the fact that all of the other books ever written about the liberty sort of skipped over the involvement of london johnson and our book does not do that penn's much of
5:47 am
the responsibility on him i believe that having surrounded himself with with very overly zealous zionists as advisors. numerous men i'm not going to name all of them they're all in the book of course but. i believe that they that he through them and their counterparts in israel had planned this action for up to two years and i believe that the sinking of the liberty was was a piece that johnson personally and vote i believe that it was all driven by his desire to have another landslide election the following year and nine hundred sixty eight just as he used the previous false flag attack in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. called the gulf of tonkin as a means to ensure himself a landslide election and that year that that's what this was about for him i think
5:48 am
that no one has ever produced any kind of rationale that that that israel could possibly benefit from such an attack a lot of things have been projected in that article you one of you mentioned in herat just two or three days ago. it was written by by people who and quoting michael oren who had been the previous embassador from israel to the us. he had written a book as well as a.j. crystal both of them are filled with the lies and deceit that were planted at johnson's order fifty years ago. and i really need to go here i'm not understanding the practice i can i please ask are you are you suggesting are you suggesting that israel was simply manipulated by lyndon johnson and that israel wasn't very much
5:49 am
having a huge interest in getting america into a fight with egypt are you concluding that lyndon johnson manipulated israel or am i mistaken here forgive me if i am. i believe that that part of it was was primarily advanced by johnson and johnson himself for his own personal reasons the by the way you have you have to remember that it was the fourth day of a six day war the war was essentially over that already. egypt they were they were having peace negotiations at the un well i mean phil you're the expert on it but it really is a lot of people would say is that taking out the u.s. is u.s.s. liberty we didn't i the americans knowing exactly what the israelis intended to do as that war was coming to an end ok and like taking illegally seizing arab territory palestinian territory the golan heights i mean there was a lot of the israelis didn't want washington to be listening to what their plans
5:50 am
were at all it seems to me logic would dictate that. ok let me go to daniel but i really i could and i have to. that is a theory that has been proposed ok i'm going there others are daniel let me go to you again i kind of want to stress you know that this is kind of a ground zero moment here because ever since one thousand and sixty seven we've been able to see you know it's wag the dog dog i mean our eyes do not understand the how america benefits from its bizarre close relationship with israel what does the u.s. get out of it what has it ever got out of it except for a lot of pain a lot of blood and a lot of wasted treasury go ahead daniel. well unfortunately you're right i mean the liberty liberty attack was sort of ground zero and what has become a very unhealthy relationship between the u.s. and israel it's a one sided relationship as you point out what i think the israelis learned that if they can do something like this go test with impunity they can do literally almost
5:51 am
anything and unfortunately i would blame israel less than i would blame the cowards in congress the cowards in the administration the cowards in the media who are too afraid to question this for fear of being tarnished with some bad words they're afraid to do this you know members of congress have said behind the scenes you know israel lobby is so strong they'll never go out in public and say you know it's it's it's something that's toxic on our own government and i think that's where the focus should be why are they so afraid you know they might lose their job they might get voted out of office you know it's pathetic you know you know can i i i seem to recall a congressman running for reelection saying you could never be too pro israel in a congressional election i think he's probably right. listen i really need to pay my respects to the u.s.s. liberty survivor's guilt or any and all of those who know damn well that that
5:52 am
attack was carried out by israel and i don't and i for one second that lyndon baines johnson is a first class traitor on many levels and a pervert to boot so i'm not in any way defending that traitor however to suggest that lyndon baines johnson manipulated the israelis into it in tack for his own personal gains is insulting and absolutely contrary to the facts as i mentioned earlier their radio transcripts which are now a matter of public record in which the israeli pilots themselves are saying or questioning the order to attack what is clearly an american ship and the order is repeated to attack that ship so please don't tell me or anybody else that lyndon baines johnson manipulated that it is insulting now i'd like to get back to another point as well which is that of course as soon as we talk about the jewish state of israel and the jewish supremacists ideology which effectively puts all of us the rest of us the go on as cattle to be used and we look at the actual pattern the
5:53 am
lavon affair the u.s.s. liberty and direct direct involvement in nine eleven in fact it was a joint operation between u.s. intelligence and military and its rating mossad agents lists audience who were arrested on the day with explosives in their bands celebrating and high fives all of this on record israel has continued to get away with their false flag but if you asians in order to use american sons and daughters as cattle to be sacrificed for their wars and i really seriously resent the idea that lyndon baines johnson did this and manipulated israel i find that really disgusting and borderline treasonous myself no serious historian can seriously put that board and i imagine that book has one hell of a lot of tap dancing in it if indeed that's what it says phil not i don't know what percentage of the documents that have been released do you see that ever happening where yourself another. writers would have access to more of the documents because it's made a long conspiracy i know that in two thousand and three that there was some kind of
5:54 am
investigation it was admiral moore that was involved with that i mean when with do you think the public will ever have access to that or are you even convinced those documents even exist anymore well there was one document that does exist and it was discovered by accident by james innes when he was at the l.b.j. library of all places. which which was a document dated april the twenty seventh one thousand nine hundred sixty seven almost two months before the attack the clearly showed that that operation the larger operation not the attack on the liberty but the plans for the six day war which was called front let's six fifteen were discussed and somehow that document was misplaced and a virtually put into a file the liberty file that was at the l.b.j. library and missed by everybody until about nine hundred eighty eight when james arness discovered it he showed it on that video the b.b.c.
5:55 am
video dead in the water and it shows that that that committee the three zero three committee it was called was discussing. the operation and that someone noted on that memo memorandum. it was it was basically the minutes of this meeting. handwritten on there is that there would be a submarine and u.a.r. waters united arab republic that's egypt. and so how i mean that is positive proof that there was there was something on the agenda that was a continuing agenda item and who knows for how long because the rest of the documents have never been. released probably never will be and it hides the fact that it was that three o three committee headed up by walter ross now and there were
5:56 am
a number of other people of course this have the cia helms mcnamara they were all on this committee it doesn't mean necessarily that this other piece of it the u.s.s. liberty attack was was ever known to all of the people in that committee but certainly some must have and then he had to let's talk about no it said i have no idea is in the other the other the other where we're rapidly running out of time here daniel what do you think give me your assessment here let's say somebody in middle america is flipping the stations and they suddenly see us talking about this what do you think the average response will be they'll probably think it's a movie or a docu drama i suppose go ahead daniel well they probably won't see it because trying to prevent our team from being seen in the in middle america but if they did they probably feel they were in a minefield that something that they've never heard before and you know that's what makes it such an unhealthy relationship that we can't talk about these things in
5:57 am
a rational way the issue is we are still seeing the same players in the same place today you see israel doing cross border attacks on the syrian army in defense of in offense and defense devices we see the u.s. and russia playing that we see us being on the verge of world war three once again that's why it's important for us to look back objective lee on as three and take a lesson from that so that we can survive you know into the next year without a world war and that's what i'm of what i'm afraid is not happening. ok gentlemen we've run out of time here i want to speak to directly to all the survivors of the u.s.s. liberty and their families i'm very happy we made this program and i hope it gives you a little bit of comfort many thanks to my guests a new york greenville and unlink jackson and thanks to our viewers for watching us here darkie see you next time and remember.
