6:13 pm
welcome back donald trump's decision to withdraw from the iran nuclear deal is sparked a wave of protests in tehran furious demonstrators burned to the stars and stripes and photos of the u.s. president there's even
6:14 pm
a similar protest inside the country's parliament itself and pace burned the u.s. flag right there in the chamber with vocal support from fellow mike is quitting the nuclear deal from pulls a vow to impose the toughest sanctions on tehran. i am announcing today that the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal the agreement to restrict iran's nuclear energy program the crowning achievement of the obama white house has finally been terminated by the donald today's action sends a critical message the united states no longer makes empty threats when i make promises i keep them but how much impact is this really having only one country the united states is withdrawing and the ryann doesn't seem particularly worried i have ordered the ministry of foreign affairs to negotiate with and lobby the european countries as well as russia and china and to carry out the necessary
6:15 pm
korda nation with them russia and. china ready to keep things going as is so are key allies of the united states and the european union and european union is determined to preserve it we expect the rest of the international community to continue to do its part to that anti but it continues to be fully implemented but the sake of our own collective security together with the rest of the international community we will preserve this nuclear deal. under the current circumstances we call on all parties concerned to adopt a responsible attitude china will maintain close communication with all relevant parties and stay committed to upholding and implementing the deal in an objective impartial and responsible way. we're deeply concerned over the u.s. president's decision to you know actually abandon its obligations under the joint comprehensive plan of action on the iranian nuclear program and sanctions on iran
6:16 pm
now this isn't the only global decision the trumpet ministration has made to be met with chirping crickets remember when the usa moved its embassy to jerusalem other than paraguay and guatemala the rest of the world was not exactly clamoring to follow suit and remember one trouble pulled out of the paris climate change accords well the other one hundred ninety five countries that have signed on they frowned at washington for a minute and then they moved on as if nothing had happened the accords remain exactly the same so once again we've got a big drum roll in fanfare from the white house but with the rest of the world refusing to go along is washington's global leadership really all it's cracked up to be this be very clear mr tom did not simply exit did. he violated as you know written obligations under the and that is a then he can important point that has been raised by. me and others and this my both to you know
6:17 pm
in the international court of justice. legal forms the u.n. security council well besides trump one of those most in favor of scrapping the nuclear agreement has been the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu as we heard earlier he is currently in mosco he recently gave a rather theatrical powerpoint presentation that decried the deal and you know he has praised the u.s. president's decision. israel has opposed the nuclear do from the start because we said that rather than blocking iran spoke to a bomb the dealer actually proves you wrong to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs israeli influence is absolutely key here trump cited netanyahu is kind of used cars the salesman style presentation in order to justify withdrawing from the iran deal and his new policy of rollback and you know first of all we have to recognize netanyahu introduced nothing new in his presentation the intelligence was arguably
6:18 pm
fabricated that netanyahu it introduced that trump cited it's another intelligence scam driving us to war. the in terms controversial pick for cia director gina hospital is being grilled to the senate confirmation hearing over her alleged involvement in torture at the agency's facilities but she insisted that under her leadership torture in the cia would become a thing of the past i can offer you my personal commitment clearly and without reservation that under my leadership on my watch cia will not restart the detention and interrogation program. cia has learned some tough lessons from that experience confirmation might not go so smoothly today's hearing there was some very clear opposition to hostile but those who were skeptical were concerned about her prior involvement with the cia's enhanced
6:19 pm
interrogation techniques which many describe as a torture program but human rights organizations have even called upon the public to reach out to their representatives and oppose her nomination but first some background on the controversy house will reportedly ran a cia prison in thailand where these techniques were used and she's accused of destroying tapes that documented these interrogations but president trump seems to have no qualms with her questionable history in fact he's even praised her for being quote tough on terror so as you can guess torture and morality were the main topics of discussion at today's hearing you believe the program in terms that you can interrogate program was consistent with american values we have decided to hold ourselves to a stricter moral standards are they consistent with american values senator i believe very strongly in american values i want to trust that you have the moral compass that you said you have i have conducted myself honorably and in accordance
6:20 pm
with u.s. law do you believe that the previous interrogation techniques were immoral what i believe sitting here today is that i support the higher moral standard we have decided to hold ourselves to the answer the question. and i think i've answered the question if not the hearing was disrupted twice by protesters who took issue with this and they were immediately silenced and then removed from the premises the first protester screamed bloody jena a nickname that the press often use. to ever police was removed. god was. was. the second protester wasn't a random human rights activist it was actually rape make governor a veteran cia officer who served in the agency for decades but since his retirement
6:21 pm
he's been an active critic of torture and more specifically the agency's use of torture during his disruption he attempted to ask a question but then he was forcibly removed by capitol police. were was. always going to. be very very. it's unclear whether or not trump support will be enough for an easy confirmation but we'll just have to see what happens well the cia veteran you just saw being removed from the senate to being ray mcgovern was one of the people we asked for comment about trump's choice of gina hospital to head up the cia seventy nine year old mcgovern is now in custody is what he told us back in march. gina hash bill was in charge of the black sites in thailand where she not only water boarded and otherwise tortured people who were brought
6:22 pm
there in two thousand and two and around then but she destroyed the evidence she destroyed the videotapes that showed how these torture sessions including waterboarding were carried out in other words if you destroy evidence if you obstruct inquiries then you can move right ahead and i remember my friend john kiriakou who is persecuted and prosecuted and served two years jail time for what for revealing torture or not for doing it he commented when cina hash bill was named deputy director he commented that this is really really bad what will the shape of the troops in the ranks it will say you couldn't violate laws it will take care of you it geno has bill has had practically every senior position in the cia's headquarters she's currently the acting director of the cia i knew her when she was the chief of staff in the counterterrorism center she's been in the senior
6:23 pm
intelligence service for decades but i think that she's not qualified to lead the cia because the actions that she took during the dark period of the cia's torture program disqualify her the crime was on her part it was that she was doing this torture program not that the american people learned about it gina haskell had the opportunity to say the right thing that this was a dark period in u.s. history people made mistakes the program was immoral it was illegal it was unconstitutional she never said any of that. let's bring in code pink activist. hospitals senate hearing to protest nomination why don't you want in charge. well there were many more than two people arrested there were nine people arrested the capitol
6:24 pm
police arrested seven people before the hearing started because they didn't want to be interrupted and the charge against jean aspel is exactly as ray mcgovern who was bloodied and injured in his arrest by these thugs on capitol hill but also by john kiriakou this woman is unqualified if these are the new american values that torture is ok that we can hide behind our our belief that we follow the human rights laws of june the geneva convention we will be the rest of the world should take note and should take care you mention the ray mcgovern among those who do time in the form of a and just out of interest you have to know the status of those who were arrested they all been released by now oh do we know. well the ones that were really that were picked up that were arrested without provocation before the hearing started
6:25 pm
were given a fifty five dollars fine and released almost immediately but raised being held overnight as well as helen shouting your who was the one who said bloody gina and the reason they want to do this is they're starting a new program where they're trying to give harsher sentences to people for interrupting these hearings i interrupted jeff sessions hearing and i was given a year's probation which was unheard of at the point at that point but we've better focus on the fact that the united states is is going down a very very dark path right now and the world community had better wake up and we're very we're very saddened that bibi netanyahu is right now in moscow this this this could possibly be leading to a world war which is being led by israel in some ways by these provocation this propaganda program that they had last weekend and and where donald trump pulled us out of this agreement with iran we're going to have
6:26 pm
a cia chief who believes in torture we're going very down a very very dark at the in this country how much weight do you think it adds to the argument to have the likes of say cia veterans like ray mcgovern kubiak you slumming hospitals nomination. well they should have a lot of weight to the argument of that that she is unqualified to be the head of the cia but then you have other. democrats on that committee who are saying that they were friends with gene asked passible gina housefull is a torturer she's a she struck fear into people's lives in black sites in thailand and who knows elsewhere and the people that sit on this committee should not cozy up to this person she should be retired she should be given her pension and shunned these if she was going on the nurnberg defense where she was she was told by others that she
6:27 pm
had the right to violate the human rights of these people and waterboard them we don't know how many times and destroy the evidence this woman should be jailed and not rewarded song of fortune to be run out of time. coming on the speak to his tongue barry code pink activists many thanks and that wraps things up for they sow say good bye for now join us in half an hour for the latest. you. get with. bankers survival it looks like you just go to the store simply believe. it will be there you don't get it. next year it was.
6:28 pm
