>> well, the defense secretary chuck hagel, and martin dempsey both said this is not a short-term deal. this is a beginning, not the end, telling reporters that it's going to require a multi-prong approach to defeat isil. >> in new york they talked about stopping the fighters flowing in and out of the region. the united states and our coalition partners are also intensifying efforts, and we continue to support the new iraqi government with its abraha program of reform and reconciliation. that's the only long-term
solutio solution. >> reporter: of course, david, the u.s. government is placing a great deal of hope that new iraqi government will be much more inclusive than the government of nouri al-maliki. the next question is who will be named to secretary of defense and interior minister, two very important posts. >> the network previously intentioned between afghanistan and pakistan, and so entrenched there that they could launch a conspiracy and attacks on the homeland. that no longer exists. that network is gone. what they've done, like other
al-qaeda affiliates, they've fled to other places, hoping to hide from the united states because of the pressure there, and try to organize against western interests and possibly the western homeland. >> while strikes against the khorasan group and syria, is the white house distinction fair? >> reporter: well, david, you know, khorasan and al nusra are affiliates of al-qaeda. al nusra came into syria to fight against president assad while khorasan, a smaller subset, was sent there by the leader of al-qaeda with the purpose of planning attacks against america. now here is what is worrisome for the west. some members of khorasan have been affiliated with that infamous bomb maker ibrahi m
al-siri. he is famous for the underwear bombs. he has been training and recruiting fighters, to send them back to the west, possibly to the u.s. to plant those new bombs and create some terrorist attacks back here. >> randall pinkston, randall, thank you. as randall told us the push for iraqi government unity is the long-term goal and will not be accomplished any time soon. >> we in iraq are determined to cleanse our land from isis. we would like to stress to you that eliminating terrorism in iraq will be an important step in protecting the world and
ridding the world of this danger. >> in syria the syrian military is protecting isil on the outside skirts of damascus, and the regime is making gains against the rebuilding there. >> reporter: day four in the coalition news to target isil, really targeting the infrastructure, their storage facility as well as their source for funding, this undoubtedly is going to weaken the group. it won't be able to travel in large convoys, but they're adapting to these airstrikes by way of the civilian population because they control cities and towns. but they're not going to stop the group. they're not going to stop the war raging in syria. there have been a number of airstrikes in the province of idlib and aleppo, and activists reporting civilian casualties,
>> reporter: i've heard strong language from him before, but not as strong as this one. he has been in the job since the death of yasser arafat. i don't think we've heard language like this, saying israel is a racist state, and what happened in gaza with 2,000 killed was absolute war crimes and genocidal. it comes with criticism of israel and he made this propos proposal. >> this endevers to achieve peace and a two-state solution with east jerusalem as the capitol. was stipulated in the arab peace initiative we could implement these objectives. these would be linked between palestine and israel to demarch kate the borders and reach
comprehensive agreement and draft a peace treaty between us. >> key thing in that is that specific time frame they're trying to do this a different way. they're trying to have negotiations to appreciate that end of a two-state solution. what he wants is a security council resolution that says there is a specific timeline and at the end of that timeline a two-state solution will exist. he got a lot of plus for that idea in the general assembly. of course, the security council is a harder sale. >> james, it was just yesterday that hamas and fattah agreed on an unity government. how does this change the equation in terms of ending the israeli occupation. >> you speak to some european diplomat. you're going to have a deal between the israelis and the palestinians, you need to have a deal between israel and all of the palestinians a nighted. there are other countries that are not so convinced by that idea, notably israel because it
notes hamas as a terrorist organization. u.s. also designates it as a terrorist o. >> thousands of experimental ebola vaccines will be given to workers in west africa. the doses will be available in the coming months. they're developing several types of treatments and vaccines. >> we are working several types of treatment. >> right now there is no proven vaccine for ebola but they are saying that they would not be
harmful for people. paying $3 billion to russia to restore gas country through winter. russia cut off gas over a price dispute. if agreed ukraine would have to make the payments up front. >> reporter: ukraine would pay $2.1 billion, and in exchange would receive 5 billion cube be meters of natural gas. that is gas that it needs get through the winter in order to keep its companies going and households warm. however, they need to go back to the national capitols to get the deal approve. the commissioner for europe said he hopes to come back to berlin next week to finalize the accord. and it's important to underline a deal between the two countries
because there is a major dispute in stockholm. ukraine said it's been overpaying gas for russia since 2010 and is asking for $6 billion in what it says are overpayments. >> reporter: nicnick spicer reporting from berlin. a fire near chicago is disrupting air travel across the u.s. it happened this morning at a control center in aurora, illinois. investigators believe that a work intentionally set the fire. it forced the cancellation of some flights. and we have more on the story. >> the chaos began very early in the morning when the fire department was called to air traffic control center which is in aurora west of chicago. there they found a fire in the basement and a man with self-inflicted stab wounds.
>> this was in an isolated incident. there are no indications of terrorists. there is no reason to believe that anyone else is involved at this time. >> the man who apparently started the fire is a contractor. he works for a company that services communication equipment. we're told that he splashed gasoline on that critical equipment and then set it on fire. chicago center had to be evacuated one employee there was treated for smoke inhalation, and thousands of passengers suddenly found their travel plans up ended. flights to and from o'hare, one of america's busiest destinati destinations, were suddenly canceled. now airport asks reopen in the late morning, but take offs and landings were severery restricted. this had a ripple affect around the country and it could have a
ripple affect throughout the weekend and beyond. >> texas governor rick perry, who was under indictment, received attendance pass to hearings. heidi zhou castro is in dallas with the latest. >> david, it is a victory for perry's legal team. they've asked this job to excuse the government as he travels through europe. the purpose is to spread the word about the economy. but according to a british think tank, he'll talk about foreign policy and an indication that this trip is geared towards another run at the white house. now here at home in texas perry is charged with abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. the governor wrongfully
threatened to veto funding. perry had pled not guilty. he said he vetoes the unit's funding because of drunk driving. the judge has allowed the governor to skip this next day in court. >> heidi zhou reporting in dallas. last night officers arresting more people. the latest next. the group telling the truth about islam with a controversial ad campaign but contract critics say it will only incite hatred and violence.
a demonstration outside of the police headquarters and an is scuffla scuffle, the stand off ended peacefully hours later. diane estherbrook live in chicago with more about what happened this summer. how much did they follow these events in ferguson? >> reporter: well, david, they've been following it very carefully. some of the kids we talked to said they have been stopped by police, and they think what happened to michael brown could very likely happen to them. now earlier this week i was in st. louis, and i talked to one 18-year-old who said he's using the michael brown shooting as a
cautionary tale. >> so you cause them. >> it's 7:00 a.m. and the start of the very long day. on the drive to school the 17-year-old chats with his mom about the upcoming homecoming dance and college admission tests. >> i decided to take the one on the 19th. he's a senior and on the honor roll in st. louis at a nearly all black school where a third of the students don't graduate. often not by choice. >> last year was a bad year for us. we lost a numerous amount of students through gun violence, and we even had some who are hurt. this is crazy. >> things have gotten crazier lately. the fatal shooting of anen armed teen by a white officer in
nearby ferguson started protes protests. harbin went to one demonstration. he said running on his school's cross country team helps keep him out of trouble and focused. he runs an hour every afternoon. >> if i'm upset or something, i got something to do. i can run it off instead of something else. >> reporter: visiting his father in prison also reminds him how easily life can quickly go wrong. >> reporter: does it motivate you not to be in that same position? >> yes, you know, almost every time he tells me i never want to see you in the position i'm in. i don't want to see you one day sitting here with me. i never want that. >> reporter: still trouble can finds teens like harbin. he goes to a college preparatory class one night each week. one night he was involved in a fight.
police showed up with handcuffs. >> at first he hit me in the face, and then he knees me and slams me on the ground. i said why are you doing this? >> reporter: it's been 12 hours since harbin started his day. we'rely he listens to a lecture about filling out college application. he hopes most of his efforts will pay off. >> i'll be the first in my college to go to college. >> reporter: and maybe make a difference in his community. and as we hear from harbin and kids in chicago and rougher neighborhoods in chicago, it's important to stay busy, get jobs, have activities in schools because it puts them in the right place so they're not at the wrong place at the wrong time. >> has all of this changed the way they view the police and government? >> reporter: i think it's really changed the way they look at government. i know harbin hopes to one day
get involved in politics so he can have an impact on his community and make change. >> diane estherbrook reporting from chicago. great piece. thanks for joining us. you can catch more of the teenage experience on edge of 18-point and. earlier today we spoke with jacob ward, our science and technology correspondent. >> knowing what someone has bought from a catalog and what magazine you subscribe to you can figure out what they like and what they are in to. now it's so granular. not only can you track what people are doing on their browsers. you can track them in their phones and game consoles.
anything connected to the internet will reveal information about you. >> suppose i want to start a campaign to fix the streets in the neighborhood. how will that feel to me for finding people who may care. >> the options are unbelievable. you can run video ads and touch people through facebook, and there are as pandora can offer ads. they know at this point whether republicans tend to listen to gospel, country, new age music if you're into yanni, and then democrats tend to listen to reggae, jazz, electronic music, and sort of undecided, the things that don't determine one or the other is rock, pop, and hip-hop, which is i think is hilarious, which was once anti-establishment, but now everyone listens to it.
so if you're running a local campaign for dog catcher you may be inserting stuff into the bob marley track on pandora, and that's how you would get out to people. >> and it would go out to people in specific area codes. >> you can choose why, the universe of voters, based on their preferences. it comes out of these big data processing companies. they run everybody's credit card checks, credit checks when you rent a property. those guys are always giving these systems the information they need to find you. >> we'll have more from jacob ward this weekend on a special half hour version of "power politics." we'll look at the issues, money in the midterm locations tomorrow at 5:30 eastern right here on al jazeera america. ford motor company is recalling 1 million cars.
>> we pray for the children in the womb >> a divisive issue >> god is life , so it's his to take >> see a 10 year old girl who's pregnant, and you tell me that's what god wants... >> a controversial law >> where were you when the babies lives were being saved? >> are women in texas paying the price? >> who's benefiting from restricting access to safe abortions? >> fault lines... al jazeera america's hard hitting... ground breaking... truth seeking... breakthrough investigative documentary series access restricted only on al jazeera america >> gathering over the rising threat of the islamic state in iraq and the levant. and many governments are looking within their own borders for potential risks. in a spanish-controlled region of northern iraq police conducted a raid today.
they arrested nine people they say are linked to isil. raids like this are happening all over the world. australia, u.k. turkey, iran, denmark, kosovo all carrying out similar arrests. they have been doing this for months searching for members of isil. thanks for joining us. what is behind all of these raids? >> they don't want another 9/11, and they're really, really worried that there are people within their territories who are going to carry out terrorist attacks. these are people who are affiliated with the islamic state. >> are these raids coincidental? all of a sudden the world is waking up and saying maybe this is a group we should be concerned about, and let's raid a lot people who have been here
a lot longer. >> you do have people who are keeping an eye on carious people, who they think might pose some sort of a danger. when isil happens, and it rises to the level that it has in public consciousness over the last couple of months. they want to be careful rather than take a chance that these people aren't going to do anything. so they go ahead and arrest people. rewell don't know that much about who it is people who are moving around the world, and what they're suspected having done. if you recall when the u.k. was attacked, they also larged a large number of people. a lot of times people are let go because they have no proof against them, they haven't done anything, they're not related. this is an extra dose of caution
from these different governmen governments. >> but is it an extra dose of anxiety? because when people see these raids going off, they think oh my goodness something is going on, and then it turns out people are being arrested for no reason and then they're let go. that makes as much news as the raids themselves. and people are feeding off the anxiety created. >> that's a tricky balance that these governments have to figure out. on the one hand generally speaking security services want to portray a threat as it justifies their existence. on the other hand they don't want people to go into a panic. you saw that last week when the president of iraq declared that isil was planning attacks on the new york city subway. at that point officials in new york and from the federal government had to go on tv and said there is no specific intelligence over here, and we don't know what this guy is
talking about. they're can'tly trying to pal responding to what they see as a threat as early as possible, and they do have a lot of leeway to do that in europe. at the same time making sure people don't go into full-blown panic. >> where is that balance today as opposed to 9/11. >> well, after 9/11 you had full-blown panic. it was an attack on united states territory. thousands of people were killed, and it was a huge shock to the system. at this point in time there were a lot of--not raids but round ups of people in the united states immediately following 9/11. and we certainly haven't seen anything of that nature taking place. >> since 9/11 we all took for granted prior to those attacks,
you have greater power in the intelligence services, in police department to collect intelligence and prosecute terrorists on grounds that are quite broad. it's sort of the new normal. now do they have enough evidence to go after these cells. >> amidst the airstrikes are we now in a period because of heightened anxiety about possible entrapment or racial profiling of people here in the united states? >> i think that's definitely a big concern. i think in the wake of 9/11 what we've seen is that the police and the intelligence services have swept very broadly in their efforts to make sure that another attack does not happen. and as a result they focused a great deal of attention on
communities. much of which has been counterproductive because they've actually alienated the people who are their best allies in fighting terrorism. that is a huge risk going forward. >> thank you for coming on. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> the chinese government is linking terrorists to a series of attacks. and they're imposing many restrictions on the leaders. >> the fabled silk road city of kashgar. shipment home of weigers. islam has always. >> these men are clean shaven.
only males over 45 are allowed to grow a beard, considered by some a symbol of religious piety. economic necessary means that many have no choice but to comply with the new regulations. >> we can't get a job if we have a period. it's just easier not to have one. >> the police are also targeting women, now banned from covering their heads and faces. the rule many choose to ignore. culturally, ethnically and geographically this is central asia, but the western edges of china's frontier say there is extremism, but that also means intrusive new rules. the problem is nobody is buying. >> weigers are not allowed to
carry knives on the streets. we're not allowed to carry knives longer than 20 centimeters. >> some say they could help modernize radical muslims. at the airport evidence that drone technology is now part of a growing surveillance arsenal. china admits it's--proof of china's government of the link between the weigers and armed groups overseas. in july a man was stabbed to death for speaking out against
the groups. now kashgar is now preparing for celebrations on october 1st, but it is fair to assume not everyone here will be in the mood to party. al jazeera, kashgar western china. >> ashraf gandhi will be sworn in, the latest violence is in eastern province where 70 people have been killed in the last week alone. jennifer glasse has more now from kabul. >> reporter: local officials in the district in the west of ghazni say this fight has been very brutal going on for nearly a week now. anthey have been keeping the
taliban off the road, and they say the taliban has been during down many homes and brutally murdering those individuals they feel were against them. and they have tried to gain control of the area. we understand that the attacks at four check points along the road they say they have killed many police with ieds. the governor said he believes that afghan forces will prevail, but he's waiting for reinforcement. they are 200 miles west of the provincial capitol, but reinforcements are having trouble along those roads, mountainous territory and it's difficult to gain access. we've seen fighting, a very difficult fighting season for afghan forces, but this fighting is considered brutal with at least 70 people having been killed. the government waiting for
reinforcements from outside of the local police holding their own against the taliban, and in yet another fight here. and at a sensitive time. afghan's president is set to be inaugurated on monday. afghans hope this will bring more stability to the country where there has been a political vacuum to launch more and more attacks. this has been a very difficult summer for afghan forces. >> maria ines ferre. >> reporter: a man at an oklahoma food plant is accused of beheading a man with a knife. police asked the fbi to investigate the case after several workers say the workers was trying to convert people to islam. authorities are waiting for the suspect to regain consciousness to charge him, the hunt for an
accused cop killer is about to enter a third week. investigators say he i he he is a survivalist and that he is hiding out in the poconos mountains. the police in detroit say a driver who ran into a pedestrian bridge causing it to fall has decide. the bridge collapsed on to a six-lane freeway. they're not releasing the name of the driver and no word yet why he hit the bridge. and crews are able to stamp out wildfires in california. much-needed rain helped 800 wildfires on scene. they contained all but one wildfire in the last few weeks. wildfires have destroyed dozens of homes and thousands of businesses. 300 million 300 buildings are still under
concern. >> attracting criticism, a group behind ads are reporting about jihad in america. >> reporter: city leaders and muslim groups say the ads are hateful and could incite violence against american muslims when hate crimes are already on the rise. hitler sitting with a muslim leader. just one of six ads americans will see next week group hinds the ads said that the campaign tells truths about islam. but muslim organizations say these are lies. >> this is to get people to hate muslims. >> reporter: the hate crimes against muslims are up this year. twice as many as last year. one reason is isil's recent
beheadings of james foley and stephen sotloff. the director of asi arab negotiations said he wanted to cut my f-ing head off, and i'm worried these could incite more hate crimes against those who are perceived to be muslim. >> reporter: pamela gellar is the blogger behind the ads. she said this was supposed to be education. >> in no way is this an ain't islam campaign. this is a pro freedom campaign. >> reporter: the campaign will be broader with posters blasterred on buses and two subway entrances. one new ad takes aim at the
palestinian grouped hamas designated by the u.s. as a terrorist organization. >> there is no correlation. she's trying to create hatest towards anything that defends muslims in america, even if it depends their constitution and civil liberties. >> reporter: the city's mass transit authorities say it can't do:roar tha do much other than to display they do not share the feelings. >> we have a right to call her out, a bigot and hateful person who uses propaganda to incite violence and hatred against american muslims. >> the transit authority did reject one ad that referred to muslims killing justs. gellar is now suing the mta.
i know you've done reporting on gellar in the past. four years ago she spoke out what she called the ground zero mega mosque. we reached out to her. >> we did reporting on her when she was complaining about turk turkeys around thanksgiving and people should not buy them. thanks for the report. appreciate it. selfie technology that reveals your real age based on things like the shape of your face, if you have ever smoked. we'll put it to the test in "techknow." and travel can take you across the atlantic and into space in two hours. >> oscar winner alex gibney's edge of eighteen. an intimate look... >> ...wait...is that a camera? >> at the real issues facing american teens >> whoa...code red.... >> dreaming big... >> i gotta make it happen... and i'm gonna make it happen... >> choices made.... >> i'm gonna lose anything left that i have of the mexican culture... >> fighting for their future... >> it is imperative that i get into college...
>> a lot of our rhythms counter how old their face is. not chronological age but face age. then a few other pieces of information it will bring out information about ages that can be useful. >> we decided to up load our face. >> we're showing the points that we use to break up and pars the face. so these little white dots that you can barely see are points that we use. in our algorithms find these points. >> it is based on facial recognition software. it is used in fbi and homeland
security. >> we start with the forehead. and then down to the brow. large pores indicate an older person and the edges of the mouth are all indicators of aging. we have an age of 35. >> spot on. >> your life expectancy is 84, which is a pretty good. >> pretty good ending. >> next up. phil torres. >> this is myselfy. what can you tell me about my future. >> going down we look at the forehead. this is an indication that possibly you spend time out in the have creases here, but you don't see that in any other parts of your face. >> so if we were to put this into the software what would happen? >> if we try to put this in the
software we'll run into some problems relative to the facial hair. first, it throws off alignment and throws off information. >> i took a selfie for science, but now i need to shave. i don't know. >> yes, yes. >> we'll learn more from los angeles is phil torres, who still has not shaved. what are these researchers trying to accomplish with all of this? >> you know, the way i see it, these guys have really advance technology with facial recognition, and they have done remarkable things. i think they're trying to take a bit of that tech, put it in your hands of the individual so that if there is some diagnostic tool we can get, tell us something for our health and community that's a pretty good thing. >> our producers tried this themselves.
here are my results. 59? i'm not 59. what on earth is this? what are the factors that determine the face age. i'm in my mid 40s, everybody. >> we saw the same issue. they definitely have some work to do, but the way they see it every square inch of your face tells a part of story. they're trying to interpret that and in the end give you a number 37 they're trying to simplify something that is very complex. they'll get better. try in a few years. >> i bet the make up ladies could take off 20 years if i had gone to them for the safey. what other selfie technology is out there? >> this is what is exciting for me. there is some technology out there that they can diagnose things like genetic disorders or developmental disorders. these things are important. you may not know that you have it, but taking a selfie they can see patterns in the face that recognize it. some of these are life
threatening if you're not aware of it. that is solid science. i'm excited to see that. >> phil, don't give in. don't shave the beard. keep it. that's your protest on the scoop on my behalf. you can see more from phil tomorrow 7:30 eastern and 4:30 pacific. coming up on al jazeera america. looking at the next generation of aircraft will take you from london to new york before the movie in flight even finishes. >> hello, i'm ray suarez. to win against isil they know they need to more airstrikes. they need to stifle their money. we have more coming in the next hour.

players is what they intend to launch from this shuttle here. they'll focus their main business on the growing demand of small satellites. unlike previous designs that rely on rockets this is launched on the back of a modified airbus aircraft. once cleared it's own images take it into higher altitude that satellites will be launched into orbit. this could be used for satellite flights. >> for 200 second you have the boost. >> by going so high the aircraft is able to drop down onto almost any destination on earth. it's flight time between london and new york could easily be
less than two hours. >> if we can fly 30, 35 people from point a to point b then we have available business. >> they're up against galactic, which has already sold tickets for its high altitude flights, but defects from found in its wings. another u.s. company is developing $75,000 balloon trips which take passengers above the earth. but all of these rides are aimed at tourists instead of point to point travelers. but it will give the trust that one day it needs for passenger travel. >> joining u.s. and russian crow
