7:30 am
no jeff sessions is not calling for an immediate review of the f.b.i. the department of justice of florida not the first deadly attack because potentially have been avoided had more attention been paid a penny more crime reports nicholas cruz isn't the only mass killer to be on the radar screen of the f.b.i. before conducting their crime all marma teen who shot up the post nightclub killing forty nine people in orlando florida was investigated by the f.b.i. twice before he committed his mass murder. turns out they deemed him not to be dangerous that all forget about dylan rufe the self-proclaimed white supremacist who killed nine churchgoers in south carolina. well it turns out he was able to purchase his weapons because of errors in the f.b.i.'s background check process and then there's no adele his sonne he shot up a u.s.
7:31 am
military post in texas back in two thousand and nine. times out the f.b.i. was fully aware that he was online in communication with top al qaeda leaders they still didn't bother to investigate him so we've seen time and time again over the last he is our intelligence agencies across the west dropping the ball in terms of getting tips being aware of potential threats and not following up on those threats and you take out the fences measures it seems lessons not being learned they need to have a proper view about you know what exactly are the threats what are they trying to do how can they best protect the people of that contrary to protect against these threats and that doesn't seem to be done it's not like these federal law enforcement agencies are lazy just recently we heard from the f.b.i. that chinese foreign exchange students are a threat to national security we also have federal agencies urging us not to buy chinese. brands cell phones and more recently congress renewed the power of the
7:32 am
n.s.a. to wiretap and spy on american citizens some might come to the conclusion that it's not incompetence or a lack of effort the issue is rather the type of threats these agencies are choosing to focus on. r.t. new york. a palestinian school teacher has been left scarred after being mauled by an israeli army dog and what a warning you may find some of the following scenes upsetting i'm up looked out it was assaulted in the west bank during a raid conducted by israeli defense forces they were searching for another man the alleged killer of an israeli who bears the same surname as. here you can we can start to show you the extent of the injuries are sustained during the morning from the school teachers expected to require further treatment including a skin graft to one of his arms he's also been left with a leg injury. so. i woke up when i heard
7:33 am
explosions i looked at my house door and it had been destroyed by an i.d.f. bomb and after that there were several other explosions that destroyed the windows and damaged the house i went immediately to my children's room and we gathered after that there was another explosion that destroyed the bedroom door and i saw a dog it started to attack me and bite my shoulder and then it started to bite my leg and i was screaming. the palestinian schoolteacher was allegedly attacked in front of us children and i do his wife you know. this incident has had a psychological effect on my husband my children and myself and i am studying it and his hospital where they end up and i see he lay cannot but shaky and. the eldest son also wakes up screaming and bound he's and the little one is waiting it was a terrifying experience the dog attacked my husband for over seven minutes and i tried to help him defend my husband by grabbing the dogs had
7:34 am
a vision but i couldn't get away and. we asked the i.d.f. for comment on the case they responded by saying i had previously threatened civilians in jewish majority areas of the west bank they also told us the raid was conducted in accordance with standard procedures and that it was immediately given medical treatment however he disputes that saying he had to wait to get treatment. afterward i was bleeding for more than two and a half hours and they took me to the hospital note that i only got treatment at the hospital itself not from the i.d.f. author and journalist i max blumenthal says the use of dogs is actually i.d.f. policy. this you know is being cast by the israeli military and government as kind of an isolated incident but as any of us who follow the situation in the west bank know this is far from isolated it's part of the clear policy of using dogs as kind
7:35 am
of an advance team during home raids of palestinians there is also a high profile case in twenty fifteen of a sixteen year old from the southern town of beit omar also a town that's under pressure from from jewish settlers where he his home was raided by an israeli dog unit this is a sixteen year old named him he was badly mauled by a dog you know these dogs apply two thousand pounds of pressure per square inch and israeli soldiers were taunting him on video there's actually video of this incident and now he. and the palestinian human rights group are suing not israel but actually the dutch company for wind canine which supplied those dogs and has supplied what it calls biting dogs to the israeli military for violating u.n. conventions on companies operating in conflict zones so this is a very significant lawsuit and it speaks to
7:36 am
a wider policy of what the israeli dissident journalist gideon levy calls lynching by dog we're back in a moment. the lady of all the seasons is a labor practices the oppressive measure of speaking deployed against the palestinian people everywhere she said fleda colonialism the threats to our land and. there's
7:37 am
a stating things that something is i'm doing of course the cool. thanks for joining us according to a recent un report it will take decades to clear the iraqi city of mosul of unexploded bombs a clearance works are being complicated by the fact that many of the bombs are buried under an estimated eleven million tons of rubble and we spoke to the u.n. mine action services senior program manager he compares the situation in that city city to that of a world war two. becomes so explosive
7:38 am
a house odes it is very in that it is unseen previously on the sea and proportions in terms of the contamination that we experience it is a mixture of coalition ammunition that has been fired and that has failed to function we are still made at least ten percent of that emanation. that has five been fired has failed to function we also find that isis i mean that has been fired has failed to function but with higher failure rates in addition to that we also find improvised explosive devices different types of explosive improvised explosive devices with different fusing systems all in common a combination with rubble high degree of rubble we estimate eleven million ton of rubble in western mosul at least and in general a very difficult conditions to work under. it is a situation very similar to after the second world war of course what we are doing
7:39 am
right now is that we are clearing we serving and we are clearing critical infrastructure but still after ten maybe twenty years maybe even longer there will still be explosive contamination. it is almost impossible to say we haven't got the school of contamination in most we haven't been to a locations but it is the question of years and until everything has been cleared it is probably more than ten years so as most will struggle to get back on its feet the iraqi government now estimates that eighty eight billion dollars are required to rebuild the whole country at a global aid pledging conference in kuwait just over thirty percent of that figure was raised now the u.s. led coalition has been involved in a number of military campaigns in iraq since two thousand and three however it's
7:40 am
pledged just three billion of the eighty eight billion dollars in reconstruction aid needed and this was not in direct financial help in fact the money was placed in loans and financing to american to invest in iraq. much work remains to rebuild iraq and modernize its economy the signal is strong. and iraq's ministry of foreign office will sign a three billion dollars memorandum of understanding but don't listen to the announcement by the us government representative in the kuwait conference was clear they will not provide anything except perhaps some investment in iraq a lot we believe that the iraqi government with all this political factions should have joined forces and demanded to put me in mind and. activists demanding justice for those killed in the massive grunfeld fire in london last year have chosen an unusual way to stage a protest they borrowed an idea from an oscar nominated film to put up with my
7:41 am
daughter angela was murdered seven months ago like in the award winning movie three billboards outside the activist tired free billboards to send the message trucks carrying the world seventy one still no arrests and how they were driven through london critics say questions over the safety of cheap housing have yet to be answered in the wake of june screen felt disaster. activists warn many housing projects across the country suffer from the same construction problems as the ground and sale thora has a failing to take action and i see a truck and i spoke to one protester behind the billboard campaign it's been eight months since the ground fell tower tragedy shook the u.k. a twenty four story building was engulfed in flames the lives of seventy one people
7:42 am
were lost with dozens more injured numerous campaigns protest demonstrations have taken place since calling for answers justice and accountability for now join. by one of the co-founders of justice for grunfeld which is a grassroots community group obviously calling for justice and answers about thank you so much for joining us today two hundred ninety seven buildings that people are still living in today up and down the country that have the same kinds in the government's response has been to that they should pay for it themselves to take it down. you know lots of the survivors are still in temporary or emergency accommodation for those really don't i think you know the survivors and the community i think prosecution of those responsible needs to take place we need to see people in the dark. and they need to suffer the same penalties that any other citizen would do rather than just kind of give him elected officials favorable
7:43 am
treatment or how likely do you think that might happen given it's been eight months already and we haven't seen one name or person be held accountable do you think that is actually going to happen i think we're going to have to mikey how planned we will continue to come time to make sure that happens how real is the fear that something like this could happen again while this investigation even is still continuing if i was living in one of those buildings i don't think i'd be sleeping at night right now you know you cannot put people in unsafe built ins and why the government isn't reacting to this quickly and wrap it in the way your home she your home is your hate fearne you have a right to live is a human right to have a safe shall tongue we will continue to campaign you know look out for other things that we're going to and more keep those questions out in the public domain and we expect the government to respond to what's in the public to mind about which is thank you very much for joining us here well the officials are continuing to conduct investigations into what exactly happened at grenfell tower that killed all
7:44 am
of those people and it's clear that the local community is going to continue fighting for those answers until we get them and archie munda. an eight hundred percent increase the u.s. military plans to radically boost its stockpile of artillery shells by almost one hundred fifty thousand units. the order includes one hundred fifty five millimeter artillery shells a standard nato caliber that's especially widespread among naval forces and g.p.s. guided excalibur rounds also on the list are they designed for quote danger close to two ations and we asked
7:45 am
a security analyst bridge what might be behind this surge in order almost certainly one can say that these are used these are heavy weaponry they are used mainly in conventional conflicts what we're seeing here is a very large increase that i think can't be completely explained by replenishing used resources the what's being attempted i think it's a gesture it's a symbol that is saying we are massively increasing our defense expenditure in the areas that are likely to be used in a possible combat scenario with states rather non-state actors and invariably of course they're talking here about russia possibly china iran and others and that would be consistent with the new stated u.s. security policy of confronting those states by any standard this isn't a very great increase in the number of shells being ordered a powerful stockpiling which again means that the army is effect through preparing
7:46 am
for war. traversing a frozen over siberian lake and a pair of skates over seventy years old might not be everyone's idea of a daily commute but that is for one russian grandma. i. think. i.
7:47 am
