9:03 pm
that we should ever. start wars to well she's dead right to start wars and when did they do but. it was used at that time by the us france and the u.k. to illegally bomb syria so that was. causing war and what the 1st likely stated was a quarter to either side which said that if war is to be started by and i didn't see peace could be started but we want to troops and we want peace. on the matter under discussion was the alleged use of chemical weapons in duma this video is reported to show the aftermath it was widely circulated at the time with though some sources allege it was staged as white syria denying any involvement a number of western countries immediately blamed for the attack and carried out missile strikes in response. now while the o.p.c. w. concluded the attack did take place leaks from whistleblowers inside the
9:04 pm
organization so crucial evidence was a method that included an internal document saying the chlorine cylinders will place that the same not dropped from the air which had been a key factor in apportioning blame on syria or the other lead. discloses most of the investigators working on the ground were excluded from discussions on the final report mick wallace again thinks if the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons had nothing to hide it would have turned a blind eye to the whistleblower revelations your p.c. don't them can be biting into nice a lot of musicians can help. the demise of to use chemical weapons or o.p.c. don't you has to read a bit and write it looks like to do the right the director general of the all see job little or no notice it looks like. there is a if earned under our ears i was going to die and if they hadn't been here well and
9:05 pm
have been this whole episode well they have nothing to fear nor are those who has nothing to hide and is sure that they are telling the truth would be afraid to have the investigation if they refused to have a transparent investigation into this whole matter it actually emphasize story guilt. police in the u.k. have smashed their way into the home of a man who broke the country's strict quarantine rules after returning from abroad matthew owens refused to eyesight and a hotel at his own cost after travelling through a so-called red list country this video shows the moment police entered his house. i. didn't tell you what you were in your ask for agreed to pay even michael leahy famously having seen it designated how when instructed to do so now when the police came to the door they said they do not need a warrant to construe my home they came through the address on the rest of me on
9:06 pm
the wrong name for a start which is absolutely ridiculous how police can contribute or without a warrant probably going to arrest me on the wrong name. you know it's absolutely above and beyond all to the tame me when i was 2 days into i sleep in a home with a stipulative that will be on the passenger locator for how does it make any sense that taking helps a lot and bottoms and then keep me is basically a glorified there's no i left this crunch in the place because of the the u.k. government failed the people and i'll terribly the on the the situation. almost a owens had flown back from bahrain transiting through i would be in frankfurt before ending his journey in manchester i would be using the united arab emirates which is on the u.k.'s red list to prevent new clothes trains being brought into the country the government has ruled anyone out on in from a red list zone has the quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel and pay almost 2000 pounds for that privilege mr owens again
9:07 pm
police however the quarantine conditions are not as safe as one might think. you treated like a. lot like an animal almost you get your meals delivered every day when the not on the dog and then they just leave your food on the floor for you to open the door and just be you know pick your food up off the floor the big thing for me is the because the on taken you know extreme measures were put in place to detain me in the video and bring me here so out expect that to be matched by each scene precautions taken and the not there before the stuff that i've got the contract for this for these kinds of hotels the only p.p. the web is a must have got pictures of some of them not even when the droplets open if their nose and i've even got pictures of ones i haven't even got over the mouth in my case in particular literally 4 to abu dhabi i'm still an international grounds i haven't gained immigration of literally just been transferred through on top of everyone's got to produce a negative test to be a not airport no one could just walk into an airport you've got to go for the bits
9:08 pm
to get a procedure even in front of it i have to produce my boarding pass on my passenger locator form which i'll be isolating the whole call the consulate i'm going through the machine just to try and get the voice recordings of the device but ultimately i was told anyway in manchester or advice or not the onus is on the trouble and so if that's the case then obviously so be it but the events that happened after that are just you know it's ludicrous. the mineral water brand if young made a splash over a tweet encouraging people to drink more water pretty innocuous stuff the issue being that they posed to be out of it on the 1st day of the islamic holiday of ramadan when eating and drinking periods are limited the french company has apologized for the timing of the ad that led to further criticism with many accusing it of bowing to work pressure charlotte lewinsky picks up a story do you mean this is perhaps nothing more than a postal order something to quench your thirst point. everyone has found out so.
9:09 pm
also very poor to hear influence being accused of everything is a little a phobia to being a victim of intellectual terrorism and it started with a tweet it seems and this isn't enough rowing to retreat if you had a liter of router i don't necessarily even say water i mean you're supposed to drink 2 meters a day but new mystery mind of a staple for human life was put on 1st day of ramadan a festival with muslims for drinking during daylight hours the reaction king's week unfold sed. i have to explain to my mother how it is normal for everyone to tweet about water even during ramadan because she thinks they are islamophobia you know it's ramadan you're abusing if you issued an apology to coors in the offense and said that the person was common to see but not any so it didn't sinking even deeper
9:10 pm
into controversy. i would never buy evian again inadmissible to apologize it's basically a cool health message and yet you have to apologize if in 2021 ask you who drinks what i since provoke you should have a consultation. every umbrella under attack for advertising water on ramadan day for some islamists muslim festival should be imposed on everyone well no let's stop this madness soon was a means to we need to exult it is a long way off through here in paris people with the best food boy that allegation . for me know i saw the controversy i saw the to eat frankly i think it could be quincy adams in my opinion there was no bad intention and they deleted the tweet to avoid necessary control the see but not at all because they felt guilty. for me it's not a slam a for b.
9:11 pm
i don't understand it like that for me would denigrate a strong one who say look at her she still veiled for me that's a slum a full big. him or madonna when i'm doing my ramadan i know where start in the morning and it goes on until the evening i don't eat i don't drink it has nothing to do with business or anyone else if someone tweets like this i don't care what many muslims also took to twitter to say that they didn't think that tweet by everyone was. leading so to question the way that any muslim had indeed been left insulted by evian or if somehow this whole story was the result of a when. they were playing it rather see so what do you see paris. translators who helped western forces in afghanistan claim they'll pay with their blood when u.s. and nato troops are pulled out of the country reported to happen by mid september 1
9:12 pm
former afghan translator for the british army shared his concerns with r.t. . i think minister of defense under u.k. government as a whole are forgetting that interpreters were key assets off the the 18 year long combat military mission in afghanistan and leaving them behind and forgetting them is is putting them at risk afghanistan is a very dangerous on hostile land in central asia so the trip and the shadow of fear and insecurity that exists there will certainly affect the lives of those interrupt us who work for the british forces in afghanistan over the years the u.k. has let hundreds of interpreters who work for the british army settle in the country critics though say many he ought to be eligible for the scheme are being denied that chance u.s. president joe biden announced the withdrawal by september 11th of american and nato troops from afghanistan this week translating to help them over the years fear
9:13 pm
they'll be left to the mercy of the taliban militants who branded them traitors and legitimate targets and as a unit against as many workers have been left traumatized. i am regularly in touch with afghan interpreters who are searched for the british army and they are still stuck in afghanistan and they are not aware of their future they are living in trauma and fare every day not knowing what could happen tomorrow or next they didn't so the situation is very risky for and with us in afghanistan unless the british government acts quickly and introduces an inclusive scheme that allows all interpreters to relocate to the u.k. the situation will not be resolved are part of the international. missions object of in afghanistan was to secure europe and american borders from the threat of terrorism so afghans who joined the international forces and worked as interpreters alongside these forces they are actually the core of the ends of the
9:14 pm
safety and security of europe and america leaving them behind is not our way of more ality. and human. russia says the czech republic will face consequences of the prague miles on saturday it was expelling 18 russian diplomats the czech republic is blaming russia for a huge ammunition depot explosion in 2014 artie's. the details. well it's been a tough week for diplomacy and more generally a period of increasing tensions 1st off on thursday we learned that the u.s. would be expelling 10 russian diplomats for a legit election interference then poland foist it support and sent back to moscow 3 russians now its neighbor the czech republic has followed suit. as foreign minister of the czech republic i took the decision to deport all the workers of the russian embassy in prague who were clearly identified by our secret service as
9:15 pm
members of the russian s.v.r. and g.r.u. intelligence services 18 russian embassy workers need to leave the czech republic in 48 hours or so check intelligence claims that has evidence that those 18 russians were somehow involved in the tragic explosion that happened on check for oil back in 2014 of the bays and clear evidence obtained by our security services i must state that there is a reason to believe that russian officers belonging to unit 21055 of the g.r. unit from mission security service were involved in the explosion that occurred at another unit in for bet its $24.00 team for our fellow citizens fathers of families who were injured now just quickly that explosion claiming to lives took place at a military. is located around $331.00 to southeast of the capital prague now would support around 10000 kilograms of ammunition including medium range missiles were
9:16 pm
kept there for years at the course has remained unknown though one point of us was floated around that negligence at the site was to blame now though almost 7 years on the czech republic has apparently determined that moscow is behind it why it's taken so long to reach that conclusion or indeed the fact that the investigation is still technically ongoing was not something that was touched upon in that announcement what's made the story. even more in tangled you could say and this is the part that the media has really seized upon is that right after that expulsion was announced a photo was put out of 2 russian nationals and i'm told about alexander petrov. of the names might ring a bell indeed the british accuse these 2 of attempting to poison. and his daughter yulia in back in 2018 with the nerve agent never talk we'll of course remember
9:17 pm
that this caused a diplomatic firestorm as well as a media frenzy now the connection between these 2 men and the 2014 explosion czech republic has not been made or at least it's not been stated publicly but we do know that the police are actively looking for them and they say that they were spotted in check territory in the days leading up to the event as for where this might lead to the czech interior minister said that sadly this will damage bilateral ties he also said that the country now finds itself in a similar position to that of the u.k. following the script case as the moscow house of want of consequences it's clearly increasingly frustrated by recent events there are a number of unanswered questions unclear moments in the story that might be explained in the coming days but like i said really this is been a week where day by day diplomacy has been put under more and more strain through political analysts thrown around for some political comedy. called the situation.
9:18 pm
the timing is interesting because just you know in one day that check 14 minutes diana how much echo was expected in moscow he was expected to come here to agree on the purchase of. vaccine for. the czech republic let me remind you that there czech president or examined is considered to be also file and openly openly expressed sympathy for india or by the russian be seen now of course the president has to. be patriotic so that the prime minister bobby says that you know the president is behind him even you know demanding explanations from russia on what happened i don't see this evidence it has not been presented really to us so what i
9:19 pm
can it's you is that it also is just handy to present them. suspects because they have already been presented they were already in the mind in the consciousness of public. due to the case and the script in itself has never been really. explained before such evidence has been presented in the convincingly way we have to assume that we are dealing with yet another diplomatic crisis between the western european and also america of course indirectly involved partner and russia and there is just the geopolitical real which offers a real explanation. russia's federal security services
9:20 pm
detain 2 men who it's claiming the prosecutor in belarus plans allegedly included a plot to assassinate the country's president alexander lukashenko earlier r.t. goes on off was in the studio with my colleague you know neal to talk through the story. essentially what we know from the russian federal security service or the f.s.b. they have detained 2 men one is a better russian another one has dual citizenship of bellicose and the united states so they were plotting a coup in better routes they planned on the 9th of may it's victory day a very big celebration here in russia and in baton rouge as well they planned to capture some of the strategic buildings symbolic buildings like the like the t.v. station the radio station they plan to capture alexander lukashenko and his son potentially even assassinating him this is the information from the belorussian president himself these 2 people arrested in russia detained in russia they are
9:21 pm
believed to be the ringleaders of the whole operation but they weren't acting alone there was a group and which was detained which had been detained and apparently there was a whole stash of weapons discovered as well last year we spoke quite a bit on the program did in the you were there in belarus as a crisis really unfolded for quite some time tell us a little bit more a but dull aspect and has it alleviated you know it well bill roses still recovering from that crisis because basically what happened after the presidential elections last year which alexander lukashenko the world according to official statistics he wanted by a landslide but a lot of people a lot of people in belarus they did not believe they were they said they accused the leader of the president of belarus for fraud and they took to the streets there were mass protests and initially they were met with the with with a very harsh police response with police police was accused of brutalizing
9:22 pm
civilians as we were working in belarus we saw tens of thousands of people at least take to the streets protesting and demanding the lisander should go also so counter protests over alexander lukashenko supporters who agreed. with the results of the elections and will said that the country should come down and everything should be resolved peacefully and through the world through legal procedures so now this whole anti-government protest and brother was has been reduced to me it has been localized essentially it has been reduced to people like waving opposition flags out of their windows and the law enforcement coming and tearing those flags down and this announcement by the security services of russia and of and by xander look at shanteau it just adds up to this whole story now that there is saying that there were opposition elements that planned and assassination. the f.b.i. has revealed it previously interviewed the government behind this week's mass
9:23 pm
shooting at a fed ex office in the us in march 2020 the suspects mother contacted law enforcement to report you might try to commit suicide by cop based on items observed in the suspects bedroom at that time he was interviewed by the f.b.i. in april 2020 no racially motivated violent extremism ideology was identified during the course of the assessment and no criminal violation was found on the gunman 1st opened fire in the car park of the fed ex facility before entering the building itself it killed 8 people before turning the gun on himself police identified the shooter is 19 year old brian and scott hall who was a former employee at the facility it's not the 1st time the f.b.i. has let people go who go on to be mass killers. and i was interviewed 2 years before he and his brother killed 3 people in 2013 bomb attack at the boston marathon. mattoon who murdered 49 people that i don't like live shooting in 20 or
9:24 pm
16 had been under 2 separate investigations though both were dropped. and william and was investigated by the bureau a year before he killed 2 people and they asked tech high school shooting in 2017 we spoke to political activist and lawyer christian months who says that the authorities should keep close tabs on such individuals i think we must put more pressure on officials and authorities especially in the f.b.i. to to not let go of these individuals and if they are to be let go there has to be some very strict monitoring because we cannot allow these things to continue to happen there is a clear issue with psychologically disturbed individuals who have access to weapons people know they are psychologically disturbed the f.b.i. knows there are psychologically disturbed and yet they're left unchecked and then they go on to commit these crimes i think there has to be some accountability on
9:25 pm
the part of the government of federal agencies to do their job a little bit better and make sure that these people who are not like allegedly fit go on to commit these crimes. the n.y.p.d. has splashed out $75000.00 on a crime fighting robotic dog it's armed to the teeth with high tech cameras and microphones the police department has touted digital goes a way to keep officers out of harm's way the robotic recruit though doesn't seem to have gone down too well with many new yorkers. listening to talk of. the symphony. my guess is to stand up to the.
9:26 pm
oh. i love a scene i like that in my life. all right on to the 2 of them. i think they're creepy i think it's a waste of money and i think it's ridiculous that i can't spend money on proper officer training and things like. the rehab stuff i mean this summer you know the things that are. somewhat it's going to really do something it's not going to be casual to just be a robot even though the robot is expensive it's not a human why they are you getting no money from where is this money coming from how much is it just how much does a cost to spend the weekend training office hours per week and on better protocols
9:27 pm
are you're having a tough time just than a pandemic there are a lot of families that need that money. neighborhoods we need it here in new york city shouldn't be spent on lobo door. productive tonight selling away in just a few moments time the team and i back off and all of the latest headlines join us again that. the industry faces in the media of you know the. daily beast
9:28 pm
is. all about making money making profits it's about big corporations international markets import export do you imagine the number of printing diseases that are in every family it is no due to new viruses or new microbes that's not true so it is due to environment. not going to say you know that moment of discipline or the sort of muscles of really just accumulate could only come in to see to the south of the list that. the plague. if the so food industry is successful it will create more jobs it will create more value added it will create more growth so i don't see why we shouldn't also fight for the interest something into street except that we have regulation we want regulation i was industry and if we don't behave any aspinall to you that's fine.
9:29 pm
welcome to redact to deny this is a show where americans in america covering american news are called foreign agents today i did something for you guys that i hope i hope you appreciate it if it's something i will never do again it's something that made me vomit to slee ill from the beginning to the end and i did it all for you i watched an episode of greg gutfeld new fox comedy show entitled got felt i may never be the same. it may be sad for q. banditti sad for the planet it even made me sad for just life in general greg gutfeld is one of the viruses on fox news and it gives a bad name to viruses it's tough to even know who this show is for this new comedy
9:30 pm
show apparently is for right wingers who want their comedy to barely make sense and be hosted by a man who looks like his hobbies include standing outside playground wearing nothing but a snorkel and some water wings. it's official like joe biden at 8 pm crime is up. how do i know that that was the opening joke that was the best they had that was the hang on to your pain and this is going to be a great show lawn. and the live audience as you heard the live audience made up of his fans and supporters only above 3 of them maybe found it to be a joke maybe 3 could have been 2 and a half i mean it's bad enough to get that kind of response from a live audience add a column.
