trace around into the air was very reminiscent of what happened when the last of american troops pulled out of terrible airport the taliban, celebrated by firing into the air logged into the night. well, yesterday as we fill matter up here, we had the characteristic sound a bullet makes as it passes. 1 very close a leaves almost, and at that point we decide that perhaps it's, it's best to remain in doors and we later learned that as many as 17 people from 7 to 17 depending on various sources, a died as a result of that gun flaw. yesterday the taliban had since forbidden firing into the air in full celebration by its side to say any flights of court doing so would have his weapon confiscated and would himself be punished at the celebration was launched. allegedly because of the taliban was celebrating the military offensive
1:03 pm
against the last holdout province against taliban rule in have gotten this don punch ship province. we also learned that perhaps the celebrations were pretty mature because the resistance, those anti taliban forces stationed in pine valley have come out and said that they haven't yet broken that they're still holding out. and the fighting is going the ongoing that there are losses on both sides. we have heard from contacts today that the taliban hasn't the entirety of the problems, but rather several strategic heights and several areas of the proven they have launched, attacked from the north, from the south, from the east and west surrounded pines, u r g has also spoken to those forces fighting against the tide about your body. and they say that while they would welcome the creations they are prepared to fight to the end, just to remind everyone negotiations stretched on for about a week before this offensive began with taliban representatives,
1:04 pm
traveling to pines, you have trying, trying to establish a peace treaty, a peaceful resolution to this standoff, but the taliban saying that negotiations fell through because the demands that the detail about forces were making seem to them to be unreasonable. we had heard reports of them demanding 30 percent of minister posts in any new government that is formed here and again on. but again, i shared province is the last remaining province enough guidance, thoughts not on the taliban rule. the rest of the country is i'm the direct taliban control and italy uncontested. with gas t if there were despite promising to get every us state funded journalist out of afghanistan, hundreds were left behind to last american play and departed. and all those who did managed to get tagged many needed help from other governments because of our men
1:05 pm
and women in uniform. more than 25000000 afghans are free afghans shanisha democracy. i finally want to thank the incredible work of our u. s. military who are doing so much to help bring about a more secure and prosperous and democratic afghanistan for 20 long years. the u. s . has tried to force feed afghan to stand freedom and democracy. now they have another fiasco to show for it. this decision about that can stand, it is not just by that and spout any an era of major military operations to re make other countries not more than they've been trying to civilize the people who live there. although in essence, it means they have been trying to implement their own system of values and rules in the widest sense of the word. and that included the political structure. so it's the result, nothing but tragedies and losses on both sides sustained by those who did it. i. e,
1:06 pm
the united states, and even more so by the people who live in afghanistan, the the colossal waste of money time and human life have no doubt amounted to one of america's biggest defeats, but further muddying its reputation or the hundreds of employees of its global media agency, still stranded, bare with their families. last year alone, the usa, gm's state funded outlets like the voice of america and radio free europe spent over $5000000.00 to win the countries hearts and minds. the organization claims to have the ears of over 60 percent of the afghan population as well. no doubt cutting edge propaganda was just as important to washington as state of the art bombs.
1:07 pm
radio free europe and radio liberties mission is to promote mccrae vale use and institutions by reporting the use in countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. voice of america will serve as a constantly reliable and authoritative source of news was of america will represent america, not any single segment of american society. and will therefore present a balanced and comprehensive projection of significant american thought and institutions. officials on the house foreign affairs committee say only 50 usa gm journalists were able to escape after getting help from other governments. the state department hasn't even put forward a concrete plan to get its own personnel back home. it just relate a promise that no one has been forgotten. we did not forget about you say, jam employees and families are, will, we will remain keenly focused on getting them out safely. just as soon as we can,
1:08 pm
the usa g m spokesperson has confirmed that their people are still in a life and death situation. we've asked us a gm exactly how many there are. but reports suggest around $500.00 employees and their families remain a situation. republicans describe as disgraceful. my office was working with one of these journalists and tried for 2 weeks to get attention brought his case. so he, his wife and his infant child could be saved, but our police were ignored. it's absolutely disgraceful. the us state department claimed they evacuated the local employees when in reality they abandoned hundreds of usa gm journalists and their families. a scrambled evacuation terrorist attacks a couple airport and a government that doesn't exactly love the us state department. it's a horrifying situation. it's a horrifying ideal. i mean, we've essentially our government essentially left these people to be murdered, slaughtered by the taliban. these people were seen by taliban. they were us propaganda agents hired and paid by the us government to to report news favorable
1:09 pm
to democracy, to, to the west, to the u. s. government. and now we've just abandoned them. this is unconscionable . it's immoral. it's disgusting because the american people do not think of their government as a sort of government that would do something like that. and yet, here we are, the sort of people who have been a top priority to getting out of afghanistan along with others who have been the cross hairs of the taliban. and now they're essentially stuck and luck depend on their own. it's going to be very difficult to get others trust united government. but then again, you know, our military industrial complex is all the money in the world. so, you know, you can always at the prices, right? so it might step up to the plate and do it. well, we have us the u. s. federal agency for global media to comment on this story and we'll let you know when we get a reply. i people being left behind isn't the only thing the public's been blasting the us for apparently over
1:10 pm
a 100 doug. some of them he's by the military were abandoned despite the efforts of an animal rescue center in comple to fly them out. party boy k. as more in the story, what's called the internet mazda than anything, a handful of what looks like abandoned to kids. this photo have gone viral, purportedly showing us military service dog left behind. on the tarmac in couples ravaged apple fog, a major backlash online with learning people suggesting that this image is a symbol of the heartlessness of joe biden, dithering administration. but washington says this latest pile on isn't fat fake news? apparently, the case animal was anything to do with the us military. they belonged to contractors and had been passed. them were in the process of being evacuated by a point, but animal shelter and couple called
1:11 pm
a couple small animal rescue sources for the, for the pentagon and the department of defense folks, person, the dogs in the picture are actually in the care of cobble small animal rescue and animal welfare organization. the 1st casualty of war though, in truth and the fate of the dog in the cages is still a mystery. i was talking to ortiz, mariah garcia, who is one of the early reporters on the ground in capital. and he told me that it's still not clear whose dog sees why and why they were left behind. he'll be the gold crate. who's such a large one kind of an official apparent. he told me that they'll retrain and redeploy the dog to work for them. instead, they're still running around the perimeter of the airport and the taliban. ah, but taliban has contracted animal control dog control to catch the. i know they say they haven't sentenced them to death. just like with the war itself. america just
1:12 pm
call when online right now. earlier in august when actual footage of us service dogs being evacuated from capital did emerge, it led to the comments that american dogs lives were more precious than those of afghan human. u. k. government came on defy a couple of weeks ago as well, primarily being too slow to help with the evacuation of 150 cats and dogs from a campbell animal shelter run by an expert marine called pen fall thing. when one conservative politician, you will so happens to be an afghan war that trent was questioned about that this was his response. difficulties getting people into and out of the airport and we just use a lot of troops to bring into 100 dogs. meanwhile, my interpreter family likely to be killed as one interpreter of me a few days ago was my 5 year old with less than your dog that point. and while the
1:13 pm
u. s. is accused of rescuing too few people from afghanistan. germany might have taken a few too many because among those who say lifted, 20 have turned out to be people have question including suspected terrorists and a convicted rapist, his or europe correspondent. and he was able to airlift around 4 and a half 1000 people out of the country before cobble international airport was closed. that going through the process of identifying exactly who has arrived here in the country right now. while they've been doing that, while they've uncovered that, amongst those people that came here on the evacuation flight to germany was one saw out mohammed. and the reason he is being named like that is because he was very well known to german authorities. the reason he was very well known was because he previously being deported from germany that was off the in 2012. he was convicted of having raped his daughter over multiple years by
1:14 pm
a court in munich. now he was sentenced to 8 years in 3 months for crime. he was then deported to afghanistan back in 2019. we have heard from the interior ministry previously saying that there was no way to carry out checks on the ground in carnival for exactly who was getting on german evacuation flights. some of them totally falsified their papers from a to said. there was an emergency, and cocoa and such situations are always exploited by criminals. for the german government identifies around 40000 people still in afghanistan that it says should be able to come here to germany. when you look at about 4 and a half 1000 people that have already been evacuated though, well, when it comes to the people that angular merkle said would have priority. that people who had work directly with german military, german diplomats such at the 200 of those were on those flights that have already
1:15 pm
left when you included in the family, members of those people. well, you're still looking at less than one in 5 of the people that are already being brought to germany. having fits into that category that anglo miracle said were the priority. when long will continue their vacation alteration for as long as possible in order to make it possible for after school worked with us for security, freedom, the rule of law and development to leave the country. so when you look at these people as well, like the, the man i mentioned had previously been reported, we had heard from the interior ministry that they said happened. the number that was previously given was that there was 4 such cases. well, that's now being revised into a well, incredibly vague, there's many or more by the federal police who are on the ground and frankfurt airport. you are going through the tough of identifying people who come here on
1:16 pm
evacuation flights. now. as soon as the cargo airport is reopened, we are expecting more hoping that more of those people can come here to germany. however, as it stands at the moment, you're seeing germany having missed its target for people who wanted to evacuate from afghanistan by 90 percent. and also having issues with those who have been able to come here on the evacuation flights that have already arrived. meanwhile, turkey has reinforced its eastern border with a ran to cater for the mass. exodus from afghanistan and you 150 kilometer was in van. province's 3 meters high is top with bob wire and his patrol around the clock . so come to this, i miss you says sorry, the messaging service, what gets a massive find from you over what it does with uses data will be back to the details on that in a couple of ah
1:17 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have, it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk with me ah
1:18 pm
ah ah ah oh again i foreign diplomats working in russia including from the u. s. and germany being accused of funding, political opposition movements. the russian foreign ministry says that one of the main beneficiaries was the now defunct organization of the prominent activist alexis found the konstantin roche gulf as more on the claims. these are quite serious allegations that we're looking at here. according to maria's harv rushes, foreign ministry spokeswoman western embassies in russia help fund opposition figure election development, who is now serving time in jail after being convicted for embezzlement and reaching
1:19 pm
his parole condition in the eyes of the authorities. this, of course, amounts to blatant interference in russia's political affairs by foreign states and maria's harv. i couldn't help but draw parallels with the heated debate between russia and the us that ensued in the wake of america. 2016 presidential election following the 2016 elections in the us. doesn't. the freshman diplomats were accused of meddling in the election process and expelled without any proof whatsoever. i dread to think what would have happened if they had found a single dollar transferred from russia to any party in america. and this is what the scheme looked like. according to maria, the harbor for an embassies, namely the us in germany, hired russian citizens to transfer money to the val man, he's projects as a private donations, one of them. the anti corruption fund, was brenda, an extremist organization. for inciting on authorized demonstrations in russia earlier this year, maria, the harvest says it's unclear whether the transfers were done voluntarily by embassy staff, who simply sympathized with nevada. the or it just may be part of their salaries,
1:20 pm
were designated to sponsor the rushing opposition all along. what's important here is that for officials, the situation is totally unacceptable. and is a clear case of meddling in the russian politics. world news embrace now the 1st saturday of september has been a busy one for protest around the world 1st here in london where anti migration and anti migration march was met for the counter protest were some minus scuffles between demonstrations and play with opposing not to clearly numbering, the initial protest than empowers overcame restrictions, saw thousands term as again in protest of faxing policies and mandatory job that was a heavy police presence. the previous gathered occasionally violent. meanwhile, in greece, dozens of right wing activists gathered in central athens to protest the arrival of little a mile, a 3 and a half me to high profit of assyrian child, which is travelling across europe in support of refugees. please intervene. 2
1:21 pm
separate rival groups after the activists were met via can now be shirley parliament has passed a bill to ground, to police powers, to access suspects, social media accounts, and even control them. it will also allow authorities to modify and delete suspects data and even hacked their devices all without having to seek a judges approval. now it said the powers are needed to fight terrorism and child exploitation, much of which is conducted on line critic. so stress that the new bill does make the astronomy and police judge jury and executioner, while for instance, in britain and the united states, no similar powers have been granted at the same time. there's also been discussion too about the possibility of introducing id checks for uses on social media and dating apps straightens would be asked to answer a 100 point questionnaires before setting up an account and not essentially puts an
1:22 pm
end to anonymity on the internet for many the suggestion was also aimed at tackling online abuse, but that didn't make its way into the current bill. we got some reaction about the unprecedented powers being handed to the police. i believe that people should be identifiable relatively quickly and relatively straightforwardly. should they do something which harms others? things like that are always useful to investigations into investigative offices because communication between individuals is usually a key part of that investigation. and evidentially very important this. this is clearly police haven, you know, police needs to do no more. we call it fascism really because this is where the government is effectively controlling the media. in this case,
1:23 pm
social media or the internet that the source of the problem is that social media and internet communication has moved on leaps and bounds. and legislation hasn't kept up with it, probably because legislation simply cannot lose that fast. and communication technology has moved incredible speed like speed over the last few decades. and so, problems have a reason where the legitimate interests of the state legitimacy interests of the court, legitimate interest of others, have failed to provide sufficient ways into internet communications. and so that lacks behind the times the realities that in merely old cases we are able to, to unravel the aid id of people, people to use email addresses and credit cards. and they pay for things. and it is
1:24 pm
nearly always possible to, to find out who they are, no matter where they are in the world. and you know, this is the deal of the police. yes, the police will lead to work a little bit and do a little bit of digging and do a little bit of investigation in order. now you cannot incriminate being an entire nation. in practice, people can be anonymous on the internet and get up to all sorts of criminal activity, closing all sorts of home with the states and judicial bodies, having no practical way of getting behind that. and so that, that is the, the home that needs to be addressed. so the balance has to be struck and where there are sufficient safeguards to make sure that the police are doing it on the spec, as it were. and they've got proper grounds for it. and so those things do take time . so as getting the balance, right, remember, governments will take as much power as they possibly can. and this is, will,
1:25 pm
the stream in government is doing now. they are just taking as much power as they possibly can because they can now elsewhere, islands, day to regulator has slapped the whatsapp messaging service for the record 225000000 euro fine for breaching you data privacy laws. it doesn't relate to a probe, though interest in 2018 questioning, the transparency of the company's privacy policies included. the way uses data is processed and clarity over rules are applied on the platform. the commission caused by elation is very serious, so facebook own whatsapp says it disagrees with the decision. also, infringement, same of you, very serious nature. they go to the heart of the general principle after spare and c, and the fundamental right of the individual to protection of he's held personal data . we have worked to ensure the information we provide is transparent and
1:26 pm
comprehensive and will continue to do so. we disagree with the decision today regarding the transparency we provided to people in 2018 and the penalties are entirely disproportionate. there is not the 1st instance of penalties being imposed on take giants in europe. just this summer, hamilton was find by luxembourg, regulated for breaking you day to protection rules as well, with a previous campaigner and tech expert bill me believes that the fines point really act as a deterrent. but there are some companies on facebook and google are examples of this, but actually have a business model based on exploiting data. and these companies need to be held to account to the different level. the problem that we have is, while nominally under g d p o, you can find a company for 4 percent of its revenue. very few of the data protection authorities are doing this. facebook and what's up or in a position where they are regularly falling fall of the regulations. i'm finding,
1:27 pm
placing readable fraction the whole this volume is, is up the chicken feed to them. they all have enormously deep pockets. and there's actually no assurance that this foreign will actually ever be levied against them. they can go to appeal and they will stretch these out as long as they can. and the irish regulate it's just to try and short tracks of big tech booms to base that european headquarters in ireland for a favorable tax regime. now, volumes is in charge of regulating these organizations and holding them out. i didn't really want to run the boat watching out international that brings you up to date, the laneer that say fathers saturday evening, don't forget to put a website full of stories too. and you can find those at r t dot com the
1:28 pm
only one main thing is important, not as an internationally speaking, that is a nation's not allowed to do anything, all the master races, and then you have the minor nation. so the slave, the americans, brock obama, and others have had a concept of american exceptionalism. international law exist as long as it serves the american interest. if it doesn't, it doesn't exist. my attorney, this russian enter this dangerous boy, you man, that wants to take over the world. that was a conscious strategy. so i'm golf on your own, i v i. b, i not leashed to, off in one and tablet block nato could. it's our we move east. the reason us had jimmy, it's dangerous, is it the lie?
1:29 pm
the sovereignty of the countries, the exceptionalism that america uses and it's international. war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nato, what is founded shareholders in the united states and elsewhere in large companies would lose millions and millions, or is business and businesses good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fashion me. ah,
1:30 pm
i this is been by someone business, so you can't afford to miss. i'm rachel. and i bridge born in washington coming up . the eastern economic form is underway in russia as world leaders me to discuss key geo political issues facing the region straight ahead. we bring your report from the ground plot, amazon is allegedly wrapping up its efforts to clear its platforms of contents. it claim to violate the terms of its cloud service. later on we dive into the details of the latest reports about the world's largest cloud provider than global ship shortage continues to impact the auto industry. we'll take a look at one board and general motors say they are planning to fall back on production in the coming month. we have a lot to cover today, so let's get started.
