1:11 am
imprisonment. i'm absolutely committed to closing the tension facility at guantanamo, and then continue to make the case for doing so. as long as i hold this office, president obama pledge to close guantanamo throughout his 8 year term, but was never able to overcome the legal and political obstacles. and we're going to load it up with some bad dudes. believe me, we're going to load it up. in contrast, president trump signed an executive order was his office to keep the prison open. and this year is recommended release was stalled. until now, you're considering all available avenues to responsibly transfer the teenage and of course, close guantanamo day. 39 prisoners remain at guantanamo bay. prison, just 11, have been charged with war crimes. earlier this year, president biden said he was reviewing the future of the u. s. military prison, with the goal of completely closing it by 2020 for. kimberly health care al jazeera,

the white house, united states and several allies say they're ready to take action against china for facilitating malicious cyber activity. including this year's hack of the microsoft exchange email server. they say groups protected by basing were responsible, compromising tens of thousands of computers worldwide. it's one of a range of cyber threats. china is being blamed for, including ransomware tax worth millions of dollars for the rest of my knowledge. and i'm getting a report tomorrow morning on this detailing for my understanding is that the chinese government, not unlike the russian government, is not doing this themselves, but or protecting those who are doing it may be even accommodating and being able to do it. why cannot, has more from washington dc? well, it seems that president biden is attempting to leave himself some maneuvering wrong with regard to any potential action that will be taken against china. as happened
1:13 am
earlier this year, when russia was accused of packing, there were sanctions imposed. no suggestion as yet that sanctions are going to be imposed on china following these allegations. although the white house has just said that it is the right to take the action against china. should it prove necessary? but the u. s. insist that the chinese ministry of state security has been coordinating these attacks may be through outside hackers as we heard from president biden there . but certainly under the control of the chinese ministry of states security. but what is significant about all of this is how big the alliance is in terms of basically naming and shaming china. you've got new zealand, australia, japan, nato, b, u, old joining, the us protest against these actions. and this is the 1st time you had as an action on such a why the basis against china. and this though,
1:14 am
is part of the president violence problem in that some of those allies would be reluctant to impose sanctions against china, given their massive reliance on china in many areas. so the president is attempting to walk a fine line here, keeping his alliance together. but at the same time, not allowing any of them to leave because the us unilaterally impose the sanctions that others don't agree with. to come around to 0 anger across germany as people who lost everything demand to know why they weren't warned earlier. ah, flushing with freedom or dancing with danger, england relaxes almost all crew of ours restrictions. ah
