foods on labels >> mohamed morsi told a court that he is egypt's legitimate president. it was his first appearance since being deposed by the army: his trial was adjourned until january. >> a major wall street hedge fund pleaded guilty to violations. the deal will have to be approved by a federal judge. those are the headlines. "consider this" with antonio mora is up next on al jazeera america. an american drone strike kills the leader of the pakistani taliban and extremists vow revenge.
1:02 am
why are regular pakistani's upset with the u.s. instead of celebrating the death of a mass murderer. why does it seem america issen my number one in pakistan? florida atlantic's football coach forced out for allegedly using drugs. as america's marijuana laws are relaxed should the sports crackdown on pot go up in smoke? are we alone in the universe? scientists found billions of reasons why we may not be. i'm antonio mora. we begin with a poisoned partnership between u.s. and pakistan. a drone strike friday killed taliban leader hakimullah mehsud, before peace talks between the pakistan government and the taliban were supposed to begin. pakistan's interior minister accused the u.s. of tarting not the taliban, but regional
1:03 am
piece. >> it was an ambush, not a fire from the front, an ambush. >> in washington, chairman mike rogers was all for taking out hakimullah mehsud. >> he's part of an haka ni network. this was a bad guy. by the way, there's information recently that concerned us about the safety of our troops. i'm a little better for our troops today than i did before this event happened. >> for more i'm joined by washington b.c. by ambassador ak mar ahmed. professor at the university school of international service and author of "the thifle and the drone", and with us from boston, professor of international relations at boston university.
1:04 am
ambassador - pakistan's interior minister says the u.s. ambushed peace talks about to begin with pakistan's taliban, and the drone strike on hakimullah mehsud is an attack on the peace protest. do you think the u.s. has an talks? >> i don't think so. the intention of what the united states did we are not sure, because these things never come out in public quickly. the consequences we know - scuttle the peace process. the minister is using shark, undiplomatic language , unprecedented. if you saw the interview, i saw it on television, his body language is hostile. he is conveying the anger and fury in the government towards the strike
1:05 am
>> given those comments and the way the ambassador described them, why would the u.s. have done this - is it something where they had the chance and out? >> i probably think it is that. it is that. it's a reflection - the pi reaction is a reflection of where pakistani-u.s. relations are. i would suggest in all international relations there's no relationship that is as messed up as the us-pakistan relationship. it's like a marriage not just gone bad, but poisonous. this is just a reflection of the poisonous relationship - the reaction you see from pakistan >> let's go down the list of hakimula, hakimullah mehsud, his forces and allies, to address how messed up the relationship is. this is a guy who killed thousands of pakistani
1:06 am
stillians, marines, police; planned and financed the failed 2010 times square - tried to attack the united states, organised a fate fate -- fatal attack; has coordinated with al qaeda and other groups. house intelligence group mike rogers says his death makes it safer in pakistan. shouldn't everyone welcome his death? >> it is a complicated question and has to be seen in the backdrop of relations with the united states - which are complicated, which as the professor says, like a married couple that wants to kill each other and not separate. we must remember that pakistanis would like to see this man removed. he was paying havoc and nasty, savage attacks on civilians.
1:07 am
at the same time doan forget the impact -- don't forget the impact on the army. they have lost soldiers, senior officers. for them, too, this man was a target. at the same time because of the antipathy to the united states it's seen in ambiguous concerns, where his death may be tacitly approved but the manner of his death is rejected. there you have a complicated relationship and how it helps us to understand the world. >> it seems almost crazy for this response to be out there. hakimullah mehsud is a hero for many, is the relationship so poisonous that even though the u.s. did something that is good for pakistan, that in the end the u.s. is the brunt of anger? >> no and yes. no in the sense i don't think
1:08 am
he's become a hero. yes, the relationship is so poichous, instead of problem poisonous, that instead of celebrating his death, it's a reflection on u.s.-pakistan relationships. i don't think anyone is mourning the departure of this guy. as ambassador armit said, what is happening it the manner of the death, and how osama bin laden was removed. in the pakistani anxious, is - it's difficult to understand. but at one level it is understandable. there's a pol tick here. the tabbing stanny side -- pakistani side was ready and worked hard to start talks with the taliban under hakimullah mehsud. literally the day after this incident happened. this happened a day before the talks were due to begin. part of the reaction is they have set the stable, it's not an easy task getting to these people.
1:09 am
they have done all the leg work to try to give the talks a chance, and then this happens at the 11th hour. that is where some of the conspiracy comes from. that is we're part of the anxious emerges from. i would dispute the argument that he's a hero, i don't think he's a hero in any sense. right. >> let's talk about imran khan, a big star, cricket player in the old day, now a leading politician. he is threatening to cut off nato supply lines to afghanistan through pakistan if the drone campaign is not stopped. any chance that the government will go for that? >> very difficult situation. if he does that, he'll put the central government in a difficult situation. it will precipitate the crisis and accelerate it until we don't know what directions, and pakistan and the united states, whatever the present condition of the relationship - both need
1:10 am
each other in the short-term relationship and a long-term relationship. for all different reasons, meaning both leaders in pakistan and the united states have to be careful where this is moving. imran khan could be the tail that was the dog, meaning he does something and creates a crisis which drags the rest of pakistan in, at this moment in time he is in charge, through his party, of what is happening in the old frontier province, which is, in fact, where the land routes of afghanistan into pakistan, and where the tribal areas are situated. the problem is, of course, is that imran khan has passionately, paceately announced -- passionately announced the day he is prime minister he'll order the pakistan airports to shoot down the drones. they are so unpopular. critics are asking him - you are in power now, what have you down. here we have a drone strike again, after all the
1:11 am
pronouncements from america that if you are going to be more understanding, and the central government saying, "we have prevented drones", what have you down to prevent it. he has to live up to his promises. >> what he spoke b. something. >> let's talk about the drones and another element as to how messed up their. >> pakistan complained about the drones, but according to a story in the "the washington post," pakistan give tas et approval. strikes were shared and briefings were a matter of diplomatic routines, pakistani officials had a direct role in selecting some targets, the c.i.a. offering to share credit with pakistan for some of the strikes. a lot of americans in and out of washington think that pakistan is playing a double game when it comes to drone strikes, complaining about it in public
1:12 am
but approving them in private. >> both believe the other is playing a double game. that is why it's messed up. what you described is a central part of the problem? a. there was a tacit agreement, when the general was in charge, president bush was in charge. two civilian governments came in pakistan, the unpopularity of the drones kept going up and up. the unpopularity of the u.s. increased and increased and increased and the political space for the government in pakistan to be seen to have anything to do with the drone has become very, very difficult. their ability, however, to have america stop them is also zero. that is the conundrum that the government is in. part of the reaction also is that a few weeks ago when the pakistani prime minister was in
1:13 am
washington, he went in his mind at least with the sense that the u.s. would give him and pakistan breathing space on the drones. pakistan. >> this happened very quickly here. >> yes. >> also, again, this schizophrenic situation. there were numbers talked about that u.s. drone strikes killed 2,160 islamist militants, but 67 civilians. the united nations says u.s. drones killed 400 civilians. the bureau of investigative journalists puts the number at 300, pakistan is downplaying it. happening? >> i was in charge of waziristan. all the figures are estimates at best.
1:14 am
those areas are off limits to everyone. today it's like being on the moon or mars. secondly, you have different agencies with their own interests. thirdly a lot of interest and distrust among the agencies. pakistani's i ask for my book, "the thistle and the drone", i ask pakistanis, who do you blame for the creation and activities of the taliban, they say, "the americans", talk to the americans, and as i did they say, "pakistanis", we don't though who is responsible for what. there is a triangle in play. it's not just islamabad and washington. there's the third point of the triangle which is the tribal areas, tribal society, that society is driven. the rift is between the taliban, who are also plays havoc in the society, and the mainstream tribunalsman who is going through hell. one day the drones killed him.
1:15 am
the next day the pakistani army looks for terrorists. we need to remember it's more complicated than a relationship between the u.s. and pakistan. >> talking about tribal issues and thetaliban, the young girl was shot at the age of 15. support in the west turned some in pakistan against her. she's accused of being a puppet for western interest. does the rejection of a young girl, thought to be a favourite for the nobel peace prize illustrate the toxic relationship between pakistan and the west? >> yes, it does. it exactly does. this is a relationship that needs therapy, i go back to the aknoll any of the marriage gone bad and poisonous. when that happens in a household, in an institution, anywhere, it doesn't make sense.
1:16 am
the level of trust is so low that if you don't do anything, you are doubted. if you do anything you are doubted. the biggest wrong that someone can do in pakistan today is to be seen to be pro-west. i would wager in washington the schizophrenia is similar. this - for two countries that are supposed to be allies, two countries supposed to fight against the same side. these countries seem to be bickering far more amongst themselves than they are over what they are fighting over. that's the problem with the war. >> it's a huge problem, something we have to be concerned about, it's an essential relationship. pakistan ambassador, a final word - how do weighbridge the divide that is -- how do we bridge the divide. >> people like me are working hard to do that, to close the gap. for me the situation is like
1:17 am
this: the anti-men sentiment in pakistan is wide, not deep. i think initiatives by both governments can overcome this. we need to remember there was a time, not long ago in the 1960, in the history of the nation is in the blink of an eye, when an american president's wife jackie kennedy visited. she's seen standing alongside the president of pakistan in an open car, throwing flower petals at her. there was that time. now there's a time when literally if an american is out there without escort or protection, he may be physically attacked in pakistan. we need to remember that it is not very deep, and we need to move ahead. if we don't pakistan and america will both suffer in terms of the development that is imminent in that region. a lot of changes will take place, unpredictable events in
1:18 am
that part of the world, and both countries need to restore the relationship and create a sense relationship. >> let's hope we can. thank you ambassador and professor, thank you for joining us and talking about the important topic. coming up president obama takes to the blogs to express his support for the employment non-discrimination act. our next guest blasts the president for penning his response in a blog instead of taking action. web. >> there's a lot of men sporting excess facial hair. movember. it's for a good cause. i'll tell you more coming up. conversation on. .
1:19 am
al jazeera america... >>introduces... "america tonight". >>a fresh take on the stories that connect to you. >>grounded. >>real. >>unconventional. >>an escape from the expected.
1:20 am
1:21 am
can you be fired from your job for being gay in this country? the answer in most cases is yes. there are no laws to protect gay workers in 29 states. every attempt at an antidiscrimination law failed. the the enda act has advanced in the senate after mark kirk made a dramatic return to the floor law. >> i have been silent to the last two years due to a stroke - a little under two years ago. i have risen to speak because i believe so passionately in enacting the enda statue. it is appropriate for illinois republicans to speak on behalf of this measure. in the true decision of abraham lincoln and dirkon, the men who
1:22 am
gave us the civil rights act >> good to see the senator doing better. we have founder and president of an organization dedicated to ending workplace scrim nation, and a military veteran who sued the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms based on her gender identity. you were hired by the atf pending a background check. what happened? >> good evening, thanks for having me on. originally i was a police detective. i was recruited - my last assignment i worked hand to hand with apf. i was recruited for a civilian position, doing the same job i was doing, but in their san francisco field office. during that time i left the department, went through my background and i was supposed to
1:23 am
start work. as soon as i finished the background the investigator said, "you're down", i contacted the contractor and told him, "i'm ready to start." within about 72 hours the job was no longer there. there was a budget cut supposedly and all this stuff that they had made up. subsequently, though, when i took the complaint to the eoc they said, "you might actually have grounds of discrimination, but unfortunately in the united states being transgender is not covered." we had to go through the appellate process and appeals process to just even get an investigation, which concluded finally last year april 2012, i amended the 1964 civil rights act under sex discrimination gender identity, gender stereotyping and
1:24 am
does not conform to gender stereotypes. and in the summer, since they had an investigation, i won the bigger part of it was i won proving that they did discriminate. a couple of weeks ago i won the discrimination. >> again, you won because they - the ruling was based on the civil rights act that bans employers discrimination based on on employees sex. it has been used in some court decisions over the years. the question now though is if you look at that, at the civil rights act interpreted that way, why do we need enda? >> the importance of enda - and i think in its current state there is an exclusionary - religious exclusionary stuff that needs to be looked at. for transgender since april 2012 in all 50 states - anyone that's
1:25 am
transgender and work for an employer in the u.s. with 15 or more employees has been covered under the discrimination part. title 7 applies as of april 2012 to say change of sex, change of gender does not conform to gender stereotyping, which is funny, because it hasn't hit big in the media, but employment attorneys have seen this for the last 18 months and understood the interpretation. i think that is the bigger ourselves. >> continuing to play devil's advocate the reality is 88% of fortune 500 companies and small businesses have nondiscrimination policies protecting sexual discrimination, 56 protecting gender identity. what is the urge need for enda. >> you are right that business leaders led the way. congress is decades behind.
1:26 am
before today there hadn't been a vote in the united states senate for 17 years. in that time, lag the time between senate votes, businesses have charged ahead. the policies are voluntary. there are bad apple managers at some branch offices that can't follow corporate policy. when sun is called epithets, when they are denight promotion, they -- denied promotion, they deserve a recourse, like the lat jeanos and women can go to the eoc, and federal court. lgdp americans deserve the right. >> according to the gao, the number of lawsuits filed in the state is low. how big of a problem is this? >> the argument that you've raised, and the gao report is one of our best tools in lobbying.
1:27 am
freed to work has this meetings with the overwhelming majority of public senator offices. we use the report commissioned by the spop sore, the senators who gave the wonderful marks for the first time since his stroke. we used the gao report - it won't create a floodgate of litigation - it's a modest measure, having appropriate remedies when people face harassment. it's in line with 50 years of civil rights legislation history, and actions that people have brought in court when they do face harassment, discrimination, but it is - it is a very modest and passable bill. that's why we have a great result in the u.s. senate, with more than 60 senators joining to move the bill forward. we think a final passage by the end of the week.
1:28 am
>> we have a viewer question. >> viewer christy says, "i wonder how many thought it was a law." why do you think that is? >> sha sadly true. -- that is sadly true. 80 or 90% of americans believe that congress has acted when it has not. i think there has been a lot of attention, right fully on the successes of freedom to marry, they are compelling when, you know, couples who are fighting for their relationships to be recognised, that provide compelling news. there is oftentimes less coverage of workplace issues, less shows that have folks like me who did a tremendous thing. mia's case is historic, creating a legal precedent that will and
1:29 am
has been relied on many people. mia makes a wonderful point - we need more coverage of workplace issues that she brought about. it was a unanimous 5-0 decision with republicans and democratic commissioners that transgender people are protected. we need to do more public education, and the vote will help with that. >> polling shows support among the public for enda. a republican polster asking for support found 68% of regular voters support, with only 21% opposing it. as both of you know it's unlikely to get past the house of representatives, and john boehner's office released this statement saying: mia, what do you say to someone like speaker john boehner who
1:30 am
argues that this makes lgtp people more equal than the rest of us and give them more rights? >> the two main points with what he was speaking today is - first of all, why are we debating. i believe this is the rocking chair moment in your life that senators and congress men and women get a chance to be actively part of a group of - we are debating who not to pick on. we are making a law - the reason, you know, what did you say 80% of the people or 68% of people thought it was law - yes, because this is so - it seems childish that we are sitting here debating passing a law not picking on people. his sense of small business - it's funny, because businesses have been the first and foremost. and unions around the country and people stepped up in the workplace to own businesses. even today a bunch of companies came out.
1:31 am
i think he's flawed. i think it's fear. i don't know in it helps to raise money. america is going forward. america has moved forward. they need to get with the times. america has already - they are dealing with marriage equality, and it's so funny that his ideal or argument was on the business front, conservative, we worry about business first. no, the businesses worry about us first, and it's interesting that government has to now catch up to that point. but the american people are on board, and in our corner. >> talking about government catching up. president obama took to support and by blogging in "the huffington post," you were not happy with that, you weren't happy with the way the president led on the issue. >> we are disappointed that the president didn't keep the campaign promise from five years ago, when he was in the primary competing against hillary
1:32 am
clinton. he signed a questionnaire from a group promising to take executive action to ban lgbd applications from companies that profit from federal contracts. that's billions that we should ensure does not get wasted on workplace harassment and discrimination. he stalled for five years. the president has a tremendous record of acomplishment for lgd americans. his administration has said that the recipients of federal funds can't discriminate in housing. the logical step is to do the same with federal funding and workplace discrimination. we are disappointed he hasn't done it. we'll push him to do it. the best thing he can do in terms of our campaign to fight lgdp workplace discrimination is
1:33 am
lead by example. that's the most value he can add to the movements. >> we'll stay on top of what's. thank you both for your time tonight. time to see what is trending on the website. let's check in with harmeli aregawi again. >> according to the provtate cancer cancer foundation one in six men will be diagnosed. there's 2.5 million american men living with the cancer. and the digital story by a digital produce - you may notice men in your office walking around with odd facial hair. it's part of movember, men grow out their moustaches for november to raise awareness for prostate cancer. it started in 2003, a couple of guys were in a bar in australia chatting about recurring
1:34 am
trends - one of which was moustaches. it evolved into a conversation about men's health and the following year the movember foundation was established. bringing the practice of growing creepy moustaches to north america in 2006. that's a mo tracker an app allowing you to take photographs of yourself. send us a photo of your movember stache and we'll feature them on the website. a good cause and now we know moustaches are creepy. ahead - a college football coach is let go for using marijuana. with the majority of americans in favour of legalizing the drug, should sports suite.
1:35 am
>> buying stuff is not only cleaning house, but it's the way celebrities clean house. on inside story, we bring together unexpected voices closest to the story, invite hard-hitting debate and desenting views and always explore issues relevant to you. determining using some sort of subjective interpretation of their policy as to whether or not your particular report was actually abusive, because if it doesn't contain language that specifically threatens you directly or is targeted towards you specifically, they may not consider it abuse. they may consider it offensive. and in that case they just recommend that you block that person. >> i don't want to minimise this, because i mean, there's some really horrible things that are on line, and it's not - it's not just twitter, what has happened through social media
1:36 am
and the anonymity of the net is that you see websites, hate-filled websites targetting all sorts of groups, popping up. there has been a huge number of those that exist as well. is the sports world out of touch with the real world when it comes to marijuana use. florida fired a coach for violations of university rules. reports say carl and his defensive coordinator pete resigned when confronted with proof they were caught using cocaine and marijuana. the school said they were let go for other issues. florida atlantic refused further comments saying it was a human resources matter. the school faced backlash, especially as more states relaxed their laws on marijuana use.
1:37 am
patrick ruby covered the coaching change for article. >> there's proof that the coach and defensive coach used drugs - including marijuana and cocaine. why should they not have been forced out. these are guys responsible for young student athletes. >> first of all, we should draw a distinction between marijuana and cocaine. the column i wrote about was focused on marijuana. cocaine. >> it is. >> to get to the question - why should the guys be forced out. whatever the drug we are talking about, it may be a good idea to consider a suspension, rehab, treat it as a medical issue, not an issue of moral turpy tube. >> is marijuana the only drug that should be okay? where do
1:38 am
we draw the line? you bring up cocaine. where should we draw the line. >> marijuana can be placed in a different category. the other harder, highly addictive drugs of abuse. marijuana now is classified the same way by the government and many states, it's been that way for a while. if you look at the science, the history, marijuana is a drug with meddiesinal -- medicinal value. it was in the pharmacopeia in the 1940s. there's arguments that it is unfairly lugged in with other more abusive drugs. marijuana would provide benefits to society and the sports world. >> the arguments have been made, you mention the medical benefits of marijuana, and indicate that you think it's not a bad idea to
1:39 am
use marijuana instead of pain-killers or help with idea? >> there's a lot of medical science behind this. i mean, we have medical marijuana in 18 states and columbia. in all 10 americans support medical marijuana period. also recreationally for the first time ever last year, a majority of americans support legalizing marge warna, in terms of sport application, it's a good idea. in terms of things you can do, you are talking about reducing anxiety, dealing with pain, stress, it's definitely something i think that could and should be in the therapeutic toolbox in sport, particularly when you compare it to the kinds of pain-killers that are also currently in use in sport. we are talking about. >> and often abused in sport. as you make arguments about marijuana, one thing i have to
1:40 am
take an issue with you on is you talk about the impact on children and say, "but, sure, role models, the kids, clean sport with integrity, blah, pla, blah, sports depends on kids carry on and becoming athletes. they need role models, is that not a big part of it. that we allow too much flexibility for bad behaviour or breaking rules. kids? >> you talk about breaking rules. i think that's what we have to focus on. the sports world - you know, maybe 20, 30 years ago, as a society, we were more in the stage of lever madness and having a moral panic over marijuana use. we are not there. attitudes are changing, changing rapidly for the first time ever the majority of americans support decriminalisation and legalisation.
1:41 am
marijuana. >> let's talk about it. if you look at the polls on whether marijuana should be legalized, it's gone from 12% in 1959 - still, medical marijuana is only allowed in two states. where do you draw the line? should sports be ahead of the country, shouldn't sports follow the law? >> i think there's a way that sports can follow the law, but not act as an extension of the law, which is what you see a lot of. sports drug tests - they are drug testing for steroids, hdh, things that make you stronger, bigger, faster. mor marijuana is not going to do anything. it may be a dehancer if you have it before going on the field.
1:42 am
i don't think many guys will do if they value keeping their jobs in sport. a lot of the teams that are doing that are drug testing for marijuana, we are drug testing college athletes and handing out suspensions and fines if players test positive. sometimes players on the houston texans. three players reportedly were cut for smoking marijuana - they room. >> more than 60 players have received suspensions since roger took over in the nfl. we have a viewer question for you. viewer says, "banning marijuana makes no sense, unless they ban alcohol", what do you think? >> it opens a can of worms. it gets to the question about role models. the sports world is in a profitable embrace with the alcohol industry. i mean beer and sports kind of
1:43 am
go together. there's tonnes of advertising and sponsorship. also in the sports world we see a double standard. i mean when players and even front office executives are busted for dui, which is arguably more dangerous than smoking a joint in your free time - thousands of americans die every year of drunk driving. it's a dangerous activity. like this summer, we saw two den very broncos executives with duis, they were suspended, went reinstated. >> it's worse when you look at the hypocrisy involved in duis. you have leonard little. people died in dui accidents when they were driving, but were able to keep plays football later on. >> right. if you compare that to people losing their jobs over having a
1:44 am
positive marijuana test. it's a very disturbing double standard. we saw socially and culturally we have a double standard. i don't think we need to get into the business of trying to act as a junior dea. they don't need to test athletes for marijuana, enforcing suspensions on players for testing positive. it's a don't ask don't tell approach right now. what actually works, and it keeps people in line with the cultural curve, if not ahead. >> we'll see how this develops. >> thank you for your time. >> straight ahead - what would you pay for a used arm chair. what if it were this is the 900-page document we call obamacare. it could change costs, coverage, and pretty much all of healthcare in america.
1:45 am
my show sorts this all out. in fact, my staff has read the entire thing. which is probably more than what most members of congress can claim. we'll separate politics from policy, and just prescribe the facts.
1:46 am
>> a senator under investigation and only al jazeera america is there. uncovering the corruption opening the files... >> are you going to resign if your're indicted? >> breaking the story real reporting, this is what we do... al jazeera america
1:47 am
today's data dive goes shopping at yard sales - even oprah had one. the queen of talk's yard was far from the garden variety event you would see in your neighbourhood. oprah unloaded some of her favourite things from homes in hawaii, indiana and california. the yard sale on the online auction fetched more than $750,000 for her girl's academy. there was good deals - an autographed electric scooter went for $5250. this share, $1,100 - six times its worth. this signed but unframed tv guide cover print estimated to be worth $200-$400, but sold for
1:48 am
$3,000. for a picture unframed you can get on the internet for free. her autograph must have made a difference. oprah is not the only sell ebb to hold a sale. pam anderson emptied her home. teri hatcher with revenue going to family. tory spelling - proceeds going to - tory speaking. lance, insync fan created a site for celebrities to put their stuff up for sale. how big are the numbers? most people are not keeping track and reporting how much they made to the irs. the statistic brain research center statement that 165,000 americans hold sales, figuring americans sell more than 4.9 million items - most for
1:49 am
less than a dollar. and weekly sales reach 4.2 million. with the numbers, if the yard sales took place from may through september there's be an $84 million - big but not smart. if sold on ebay they'd fetch an estimated four times more. >> coming up - what is surprising that there could be billions of places like earth, or that india is sending a probe >> every morning from 5 to 9am to mars? morning from 5 to 9am al jazeera america brings you more us and global news than any other american news channel. find out what happened and what to expect. >> start every morning, every day, 5am to 9 eastern with al jazeera america.
1:50 am
>> they say they did it beca
1:51 am
>> they say they did it because they were trying to protect my
1:52 am
children. they didn't protect my children, they traumatized them. >> fault lines examines why so many native american kids are caught in the child welfare system. >> any time they see a social worker its like seeing a police officer. the immediate response is, "they're here to take my kids". >> from the indian perspective who sees this in terms of history, this is as about as adversarial as it gets. on august 20th, al jazeera america introduced a new voice in journalism. >> good evening everyone, welcome to al jazeera. >> usa today says: >> ...writes the columbia journalism review. and the daily beast says: >> quality journalists once again on the air is a beautiful thing to behold. >> al jazeera america, there's more to it.
