device a was a us prison informants declassified pentagon files reveal and quote sounds like a bird to american interrogators exposing some of the terror groups but effective operators. the white house is run by anti european hawks said on replacing nord stream 2 with dirtier more expensive american gas a member of germany's foreign affairs committee was told r.t. . parts of this is come to power in the u.s. this will aggravate the problem on the european continent this fits into biden's concept. as soyuz spacecraft successfully makes its way to the international space station
just days ahead of the 60th anniversary of human spaceflight. a very warm welcome to you you're watching r.t. international with me carrying on our top story the leader of islamic state was a u.s. military prisoner who quote sounds like a bird in jail revealing secrets on the terror group that allowed western forces to kill quote high value to harvests the revelations come from 53 previously confidential interrogation reports with more details on what they reveal his artie's piece. when islamic state was running rampant all over northern iraq a few years ago the indigenous u.c.d. community was bearing the brunt of the jihadi atrocities perhaps more than anyone
else. it would be. with you. now some kind of senior figure within eisel ranks must of been behind all this right one of the accused is current islamic state leader. and guess what the release documents reveal the man was once a prisoner of the u.s. military and provided the pentagon with extensive intelligence before being let go in several reports. u.s. forces are the best time of day to find islamic state in iraq members in different locations around mosul for example describing a specific cafe well parts of smith's daily. detainees seems to be
a more cruel person if with every session what else do we learn from the declassified reports was an absolutely precious asset for the interrogators he revealed the identities of terrorist leaders provided map like directions on how to find them the man even pointed out the phone numbers of 19 jihadi officials as well 1 as pay they got for their jobs to say the current head of eisel once bitrate the group step he commanded to american interrogators to then take his place this led to a u.s. military op in which the 2nd in command of the islamic state pretty obsessor group was killed in 2008 think guantanamo think of plenty of other individuals imprisoned by uncle sam you can't help wondering how the hell malo walked free the point it happened at is unclear too but the last interrogation reports mentioning him are dated july 2008 so what's with the release was it a stupid accident
a major system full or maybe someone thought the guy would never really cause trouble well then the story of eisel is now dead former boss. dotty should ring a bell the fact 'd that al baghdadi got his start in an american prison isn't unique there are many people including this use this current isis leader of the american prisons and iraq is described by many as an incubator for an incubator for isis you know she's not a war in the. area there were hundreds of prisoners thousands of prisoners life many of whom cooperated all who were eventually released i think is part and parcel of the lack of strategic focus that as plagued the united states in terms of its interactions in the middle east since the. very bad decision to. iraq back in 2003
we haven't made a good decision since then all mala turned out to be the media its successor of al but daddy after he was eliminated in a u.s. raid in syria and $29.00 thing today washington has a bounty of $10000000.00 on all malas head well after all it's the us that one spearheaded the war on terror and remains the most successful force in ridding the world of the evil or maybe something has gone wrong with how it's done we've killed isis members by the 10s of thousands if not hundreds of thousands the same without ita and yet they exist because killing people is not destroying the ideology the ideology is sustained by the continued american presence in the middle east this this unlawful presence in iraq and syria and elsewhere so you know until which time we can diffuse that which motivates these people to support isis isis
was always exist no matter who is in charge and how many of their leaders we kill i mean it's a vicious cycle the the american presence in the middle east creates isis and the continued struggle against isis is used to justify the continued presence of the american military in the middle east which creates isis and it's just a circle that goes on and on and on it will never end until we get out of the middle east. until the war mongers have gained office in america a member of germany's foreign affairs committee has told. the president biden moved to hire a special envoy to kill construction of the notes to the m.p. add it is impossible to stop the pipeline to bring billions of clue that means is gas from russia to 0. a party of war mongers has come to power in the us this will aggravate the problem on the european continent this fits into biden's concept but
we have no other choice the project has been approved by all the authorities and it is fully financed if we don't finish it for whatever reason we will lose billions of euros we will also not be able to guarantee our energy security the project will be finished but it's not clear what compromises will have to be made i know that the resistance is also commercial because the us wants the liquefied natural gas market for itself and wants to supply liquefied natural gas to europe even though american liquefied natural gas is much more expensive and environmentally unacceptable it is to see an expensive but that does not bother our partners. the us had already dubbed the project a bad deal for europe with the secretary of state ready to sanction any determined firms involved in the project and russian foreign ministry space statement calls on washington not to set illegal or sickles blocking completion all the projects on to follow international law hurts again the u.s. strategy is backfiring. the dependence on the us is enormous it is always claimed
that we are becoming dependent on russia to gas imports but that is only one percent of our dependence on the us biden can do anything he wants with this government which is completely under the influence of us they have nothing to fear but if it changes and if we trade more with russia it would be the best thing we could do if we can't do that or we don't do it russia will link up with china and then we will be crushed between the 2 blocs we have only one way out of this mess we have to communicate with russia and end the sanctions we must build a free economic zone from the eyes of our start to lisbon only then can we speak on an equal footing with everyone else on a political and economic level at the moment we are not sovereign only if you say it but everyone knows that the us has a dilemma if they continue this way europe will shake them off and deal with russia differently. as we dare up for the historic anniversary of the 1st as a human spaceflight altie has special coverage for you over the coming days it
comes as the international space station welcomes a new 3 among crew as their soyuz space it docked on friday we were turned to the moment of blast off for you from the baikonur cosmodrome in kazakstan where we go. 2 russians are like novitsky and posted 2 but of those calls malls and american mugs sunday of not so all the crew the 10 will be busy carrying out carrying around 50 types of different scientific research the station the crew was a new addition to this 7 members already aboard the i assess the launch marks the 60th anniversary of course with those your garden's historic flies on a 1961 to become the 1st human space. and moscow is also pushing ahead with groundbreaking innovations to improve our understanding of the moon. dawn of spoke to the scientists behind
a new now lander. this warehouse holds the next big thing of the russian space exploration program if it had a p.r. slogan it probably be back to the future because by this it's called moon 25 russia aims to return to the earth's only proper natural satellite well the moon building up on the legacy and the lunar program of the soviet union at the bus are the main differences luna 25 was created with the help of modern technology standards of course the machines that flew in the previous century were big and bulky and since space is an expensive pleasure all the engineering and development of space technologies are aimed at minimizing mass there for it old lunar use big and heavy rockets heavy class launch vehicles for our projects we shifted to medium close launch vehicles which are cheaper like soyuz or still used to and of course the approaches to construction used for designing the machines are in line with the modern technology.
this is what's left of little not 24 or moon 24 the direct predecessor of the probe that is set to fly to the moon this fall the 2 are decades apart and this 1 may not look like much after all the descend hasn't been easy for it but it was the last time the soviet union got lunar samples in a container exactly like this one. the assembly here barely stops after all moon $25.00 is set to fly into space on the 1st of october this year already and it's going to do something that has never.
been done before is going to land on the south all of the moon why is it so important because scientists are expecting to find in the craters there and hence water possibly the most precious resource overall for humanity out there in space this manipulator will be grabbing samples and putting it into a compartment above it that's where the equipment installed on this machine will be heating it up and analyzing it and beaming results back to earth and potentially paving the way for the 1st lunar base because that's what russia has its sights on women's rights in space flying breadcrumbs and darn thing in 0 gravity artie's southsea taylor quizzed the industry pros and some of the real issues around flying to the star. and i went to baikonur in 2019 i was there 2 kilometers from the launch pad but even there was so nervous and sweat and so
much i can it even imagine what you feel when you're right there waiting for the launch. actually we feel pretty calm because i've been preparing for ages and finally it's the moment i've been waiting for for so long it is like waiting for a birthday cake and here you get your piece of the cake a rocket launch and you get to do what you've prepared for for years i thought because one of them sneaks what kind of dreams do have while in space and if you cry on the eye assess where do the tears float. you watch the movie gravity which is a it's visually beautiful but it's factually terrible they have the actress sandra bullock cry and her tears come squirting out of her eyes and and fly across the spaceship and i'm thinking when i cry on earth my tears don't come squirting out of my eyes and fly across the room it's ridiculous. your tears just form and stay on your eyeball like like i don't know jelly or something where they did just
stay there permanently in space your tears don't fall. right now you are the only woman in the russian team how many years has it been that this is not the 1st woman since 2016. a woman hater is there and ross cost was considerable that no of course not all women always participate in the selection process and there are women who almost make it almost to the end and usually does medical conditions are not given them a chance to complete i have a question of all the time how did understand when is the day and when is the night where the floor is and where the silliness. picone keep track of the summer we see 16 sunrises and sunsets so we check our watches to see if it is day or night which . what excuse can you use of you're late for work here on earth we always say i'm in a traffic jam but if you're late for work at the station what would you say i was just looking up at the earth and i just drifted away in my mind when you're living on
board the space station there is not just mr and control there in correlative just on the outskirts of moscow at super but there's also mission control in houston and in montreal and in munich and in tokyo and all of those mission controls are telling you what to do and they put it on this computer screen and this red line is moving across your life and it tells you what you're doing every 5 minutes for the whole 6 months that you're on the space station but i think the standard excuse of there is there are 6 people and only 2 bathrooms so that's probably the best excuse we have above all a thought has ever happened that while you are as the eyes satisfy people come there and bring you something that you're really the wanted from earth could you ask such a favor to bring you something more after that but we can ask people to bring something and the guys will do if the mission control allows them but small things
because there is a strict list of things that can be brought and it is impossible to take something secretly to the space station at the thought what about the crumbs if you've been eaten some dried do crumbs fly all over the place then they get the oh clear legends about crumbs they can cause some problems but actually they are sucked up by the filters very fast this basically it was delicious they spread has been made this small our american colleagues even call it an r.v. bread like the bread for barbie bread that specifically was made so tiny to be eaten in one bite and avoid the crumbs. you go in slide i said in a new era of human space travel and some of these pivotal moments on sci will be covering more high flying missions in the coming days so fly this route with us on the.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy on sunday shouldn't let it be an arms race is on often scary dramatic development the only really engaging loses i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical die time to sit down and talk. the world is driven by dreamers shaped by and personal those with.
thinks. we dare to ask. welcome back this time they will mock 2 years since wiki leaks founder julian assange was forcibly drawn from the ecuadorian embassy in london and arrested by police so briefly remind us songs had been granted asylum by ecuador. and spent almost 7 years in the embassy after publishing a series of classified military files allegedly revealing u.s. war crimes as before he was torn from the building and sentenced to
a prison term during which he reportedly suffered psychological torture the us has then thought assizes extradition despite complaints from here on rights activists you are in a special report on torture knows now that has referred to the isaan saga as a war on press freedom it's almost a full interview with not going on the ground here on r.t. international throughout the day. i'm not sure it's a key event in the war on terror i think it's a cheap event in what might be trying to call a war on on the press from press freedom. because joining us andrea stands for someone the defense to the right of the public to have actions to be true julian assange has exposed evidence for systematic stage sponsored torture and this these crimes that she provided evidence for have never been prosecuted even after givens was published no one has ever been prosecuted for those acts of
torture and secondly julian essential self has been exposed. to for various forms of cruel inhuman or degrading treatment due amounts to psychological torture while i visited him of 4 weeks after he had been arrested on the 9th of may 2019 and he was obviously was under a lot of stress he already had that time physically belonging to good physical shape she had suffered through 6 years of isolation in the ecuadorian embassy but. specially he has been exposed to relent lists. threats scenarios of being extradited to the u.s. into a jurisdiction where he cannot expect to be treated according to the rule of law and we are he has to explain. disappear basically in a burial alive in some kind of way super much to support the rest of his life.
the white house border coordinator known as biden's border thought is leaving her post at the end of the month as classes are over my current policy gain ground adding to serious republican opposition rising numbers in biden's own posse have had enough. for its value in many democrats are frustrated with the apparent inability of the biden administration to deal with the crisis on the border as more and more migrants pour in each day if you don't stop this flow like i told the folks at the white house when i was with them what's your end game they don't know 40 percent of americans say they blame joe biden for the crisis on the border and they don't blame the previous administration joe biden has only been president for 3 months he campaigned against donald trump and his policies at the border which he labeled as cruel now that joe biden is in office the flow of migrants is the highest it's been in 15 years many were shocked to see that among those trying to get in were to yemenis who are on the f.b.i.'s terrorism watch list.
now amid all of this nancy pelosi assures us things are getting better we're on a good hand at the border under the leadership of joe biden president biden to sit there restructuring how we do what is happening there because here in a very bad situation under the chump administration 300 shares. lives from around the country have signed a letter calling for immediate action saying that joe biden's policies put communities in danger the borders don't work in their expose your citizens to more
transnational against violence in our communities more drug poor me poor communities checks and you trafficking out of control but change does not seem to be in order to part of the homeland security chief has gone to the border and met with local officials but the policies remain the same now vice president connelly harris has been assigned to handle the crisis at the border however many were shocked when she took a detour went to chicago for some photo ops the democratic party leaders are assuring everyone that the situation is improving they're also continuing the blame game on trump however many among the us public are getting impatient they want answers not excuses their purpose is long term importation of an economic underclass voting majority 1st they get that in then they give them citizenship and the vote and then democrats never lose another national election they will try to mollify the critics because the public is getting so upset about it they're going
to lose votes on their own side and not just on this issue they're going to end up being opposed to what they're doing is not for the benefit of the people that are coming across the border they're being mistreated and abused at an almost criminal level. folks have resumed on i can't international issue type on as an administration has said to resolve the iran nuclear deal which donald trump left in 2018 brings a signatories together in vienna to find a way out of diplomatic deadlock but the u.s. and iran will not talk directly as altie simon writes explains. there are many jobs for life in this day and age unless you're a diplomat working in u.s. iran relations because that never ends yes they're on it all over again in vienna again washington in tehran are taking steps to revive the iran nuclear deal in 2015 they signed the joint comprehensive plan of action despite iran agreeing to scale back its nuclear program making it harder to build
a bomb it says it doesn't want to build anyway 3 years later try this i am announcing today that the united states will withdraw from the a rare look clear deal trunk clearly felt he was being deprived of the birthright of all american presidents and that's to really screw over the iranians but there was a twist as always a twist u.s. president elect joe biden says he plans to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal course immigrant children from central america will tell you just because biden says it's going to happen doesn't mean it actually will. too much so that brings us to the new talks in vienna this week of course as it is the u.s. and iran there has to be an element of fast about the whole proceedings and one hotel of the diplomats from around the e.u. russia china and the you carry the u.s. delegation is across the road in another hotel the 2 sides won't hold direct talks only just kind of stand near each other and the europeans becoming kind of living
metaphors for their true standing in the world and being used as messenger boys and girls literally running notes across the road between the 2 camps where when you fancied someone at school so embarrassing the main sticking point is the u.s. wants this to be a step by step process to get the deal back up and running iran quite reasonably you have to say things that the u.s. was the one to pull out this should be a one stop deal which will see the fall removal of sanctions to be fair to the u.s. lifting sanctions won't be that easy washington's put in place $1600.00 of them as a lot of paperwork strange quirk of this deal is a lot of attention is put on how long. it would take iran to actually build a bomb the original deal about a year the west says that since iran started enriching uranium after the collapse of the deal it's now down to a few months the real pressure seems to be coming from the election cycle because iran's president rouhani wants to get something in the by before elections in june because the conservatives he is facing on that big on the deal and president biden
well you need to live up to his election promises because what he's not getting any younger is a. thanks for chasing aussie international this saturday will be back at the top of the hour with the latest. problem drugs don't always come from unscrupulous dealers but from pharmacies to every state in the united states we see me very sharp increase in the number of people seeking treatment for addiction to prescription opioids it invaded america under the banner of medicine persisted with the pain but instead of trying to wean him off though she just goes after those after dose after dose and really became
his drug dealer so who's to blame patients doctors manufacturers or the government . because the banks are getting so much free money from the government they don't want to take even any risk on any small to medium sized enterprise or anyone looking to buy a house because why take any risk at all if the government just going to stuff trillions of dollars on your balance sheet. i. this is the one business show you can't afford to miss i'm rachel blevins in washington coming up russia and now there's new plans for its 1st little currency so what does that mean for the u.s.
dollar and gillet impact their currencies worldwide plus the final ministration confirmed it is blacklisting 7 more chinese companies over him down low security concerns as it appears biden made even tougher on the aging than trump was. here a year of record losses the airline industry is now looking to hire thousands of new pilots so will there be enough to fill the gaps from those who are leaving the workforce well discuss it all next we have a lot to get to so let's get started. russia is moving forward with plans to create its own digital currency that could be ready for use by 2023 the country's central bank confirmed that the prototype of the digital ruble is expected to be created by december it also confirmed that the currency will live in a hybrid technological platform combining distributive ledger technology and centralized control by the bank of russia this announcement also comes as china
rolls out its own digital currency sparking new questions about how these central bank players will impact the world of crypto but instead of focusing on that some are claiming we should be focused on bitcoin and its role as a chinese financial weapon that's according to billionaire and pay pal founder peter thiel who talked about the world's most popular crypto currency during a recent round table with former secretary of state mike pompei oh he suggested that bitcoin could pose a threat to the u.s. dollars reserve. the status playing upon fear that china could gain control over the crypto and use it to threaten the u.s. joining me now to chess it all is boom bust co-host and crypto currency analyst ben's want all right ben let's start with those comments from feel there what does his biggest concern seem to be. his biggest concern and by the way when you're sitting at a round table with the.
