coronation with russia and china are ready to keep things going as is so are key allies of the united states and the european union and european union is the term in to preserve it we expect the rest of the international community to continue to do its part to that ante 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 now this isn't the only global decision the trumpet ministration has made to be met
10:17 pm
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 and a 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 that mr tom did not simply exit did. he violated his you know written obligations under the terms and that is a way that they can the important point that has been raised by. me and others and this my both to you know in the international court of justice. legal reforms
10:18 pm
the u.n. security council but another fervent supporter of scrapping the agreement is israel's prime minister binyamin netanyahu who's currently in moscow he recently gave a dramatic presentation decrying the deal and has praised trump's decision. israel is opposed to the look you do from the start because we said that rather than blocking your own stuff to bomb the deal that you previously runs to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs israeli influence is absolutely key here trump cited netanyahu is kind of used cars a 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 fabricated that netanyahu it introduced that trump cited it's another intelligence scam driving us to war however and you can watch it on the international atomic
10:19 pm
energy agency says iran is honoring its commitments to the dail other signatories are also valid to fulfill their obligations despite the us withdrawal here's how the original agreement was put together. it took nine years of talks numerous attempts and was even days of meetings. we're seeing kerry. the e.u. u.s. russia china and iran had to overcome their trust issues. or phrases. they believe it was even possible. to get paid the bill to me and yet it happened a diplomatic breakthrough a true success after a decade long standoff in. one
10:20 pm
country to who wasn't happy i think this is a bad bad bad. deal for a while he was all on his own until the new guy came to the white house the worst seals i've ever seen and the disaster is still one of the dumbest details one of the worst deals ever heard was the iran deal i'm all for agreements but that was a bad one first came decertifying the deal we cannot and will not make this certification the e.u. took it personally president of the united states as many powerless not this one to trump went even further threatening to pull out of the deal altogether i fear total terminations that's a very real possibility some would say that's a greater possibility israel was jubilant but they're trying to bamboozle the entire world and i'm very glad that president well enough without the e.u. tried to knock some sense into trump with france germany and the u.k.
10:21 pm
sending their top guys to try and change his mind the president has been right to call attention to it but you could do that without just throwing the baby out with the bathwater nine years of talks a diplomatic breakthrough. a true success was it all for nothing. the disputed territory of the golan heights on the border between syria and israel is on high alert israeli military claims iranian forces based in syria have launched twenty missiles at their positions there and obvious spokes person has confirmed israel conducted strikes on the radian targets in response the golan heights have been a point of contention for decades between syria and israel locals were warned in advance to take refuge in bomb shelters tensions have dramatically increased since donald trump announced the u.s. would withdraw from the iran nuclear deal and our times controversial choice for cia director has been grilled at
10:22 pm
a senate confirmation hearing over her alleged involvement in torturing political prisoners gina hospital insists under her leadership the torture in the cia will be 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 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 housefull reportedly ran a cia prison in thailand where these techniques were used and she's accused of
10:23 pm
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 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 you've answered the question. and i think i've answered the question if not the hearing was disrupted twice by protesters who took issue
10:24 pm
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 please please remove. god was. her. the second protester wasn't a random human rights activist it was actually rate make govern a veteran cia officer who served in the agency for decades but since his retirement 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. or
10:25 pm
was. or. was going to get your thank. you very very much. it's unclear whether or not trump support will be enough for an easy confirmation but we'll just have to see what happens when buck a month jonty off the cia veteran you saw being removed from that hearing to comment on trump's choice of jeana house bill seventy nine year old ray mcgovern is now in custody but here's what he previously said to watch. 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 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
10:26 pm
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 bell 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 gina haskell 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 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 disqualifier the crime was on her part it was that she was doing this torture program not that the american people learned about
10:27 pm
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. antiwar activists time barry thinks the white house is using haskell status as a woman to sugarcoat her involvement in. were many more than two people arrested there were nine people arrested the capitol police arrested seven people before the hearing started because they didn't want to be interrupted and the charge against jena aspel is exactly as ray mcgovern who was bloodied and injured in his arrest but also by john kiriakou there were arrested without provocation before the hearing started were given a fifteen dollars fine and released almost immediately it helps that gina as well as a woman but you can't have a qualified woman the reason that they picked gina housefull is the very fact is
10:28 pm
she is a woman trump administration use those points to push a no torture the things that isis did where they were beheading and doing all the things that they were doing are no different under international law and human rights as what gina aspel was doing we should denounce or at every opportunity i'll be back with the headlines in just over half an hour maybe more of a story called. welcome to mexico as are plentiful survival guide. looking forward to the year that's the. yanks this is what happens to pensions in britain delicacy you watched as
