9:00 am
america, oh, naughty i thought it's for pm here in moscow. you watching out international, this breaking news to tell you about at least 8 people now we're hearing reportedly killed and 20 inch. and that number's going up dramatically in the last hour and a block that cobbles. second, the biggest mosque the taliban saying it's to take 3 people allegedly responsible it was an extraordinary disaster. if we didn't have a president that was so adult, you all would be fired. i don't think anyone can trust anything. this president says about afghanistan. us lawmakers lambaste president biden hernandez, top bras, 2 of a what some in congress called washington's humiliating withdrawal from afghanistan . we ask that if the whole afghan campaign might have been an even bigger fairly
9:01 am
than the chaotic pull out itself. a bombshell report alleges the cia plan to kidnap or assassinate wiki leagues found julian, his sons were the agencies former chief might pompeo at the center of the plot. and russia threatens to block you tube. now off the video sharing platforms permanently deleted parties, german language channels, and the week. moscow, believing the u. s. company would not have acted without approval from berlin. ah, hello this on the 3rd of october live from ortiz, world news h q. moscow, welcome to the weekly with me kevin. i would look back at the main stories that we brought you over the last 7 days and also what's happening now. and there is breaking news as you heard there in the headline, coming in from the afghan capital,
9:02 am
sir. i escalated quite dramatically in the last hour, at cobbles, 2nd largest, more squee here. reportedly 8 people have been killed. 20 been injured. the taliban says it's arrested 3 people of the instant already. there was a long delay, thorough senior, corresponding berg galaxy of who's in the capital. but to he caught some of the blast himself out. so bare with us that no more at what is the atmosphere, was the authorities saying, and it seems they managed to catch the alleged perpetrators very quickly. yes. for kevin, as you mentioned. yes we, we had the blast. it was very clear for kilometers away. it got mosque, the 2nd biggest mosque in the afghan capital of capital. we heard it quite clearly . it was evident that it was allowed a big powerful explosion. initially we heard reports the to merely, several people had been killed and injured in the blood. but that has now been
9:03 am
a revised upset, 8 killed and 20 injured eat may rise further. that is the pattern we have seen here. and i've got histone off. every bloss, every explosion of the death toll rises in the hours following the incident. but in this case, the taliban says that it has arrested 3 people in connection with this blas uh, we have no idea who was behind that new one has yet claimed responsibility. but during a previous blah, similar to this when it is usually isis that came forward to to claim responsibility. especially given the, the, their activity that we're seeing all over the country. because the taliban has been busy cracking down on ice is here. and trouble in the capital of fire fights. endless. we constantly hear about raids, trying to catch isis operatives, the 2 organizations or the taliban. isis have been at war for many years now. and
9:04 am
the taliban is now is now trying to solidify it's control over afghanistan. yesterday. there was another attack whereby i says, is believe to have attacked and a drug by and killed several tally by members in july. but whether have been other attacks in another part of the country, there was an attack on a, on a tiny back convoy and witcher. we've heard the reports that up the 17th taliban fighters were killed. so certainly the violence is ongoing live was also an uncut reports in this latest blast that it got most the ad. but when the blood, the went off that there was a funeral. and the way you wrote for the mother of zer, beulah mage, ahead who is the spokesperson of the taliban? here in afghanistan. thank you very us, up to speed there. keep us posted throughout the evening. please murat when us one the clock back a bit. now what led up to this and the events we've seen unfold of the last couple of months in afghanistan this week. so tough talks in congress over then as you,
9:05 am
as low mike as lashed out a joe biden. and his military command has over the afghan withdrawal. humiliating is just one of the ways the pull out it's been described. the president said, none of his commanders said that he should keep troops in afghanistan was at a false statement by the president. remember, you do not have a duty to cover for the president when he's not telling the truth. i've given you my judgment on it. now we think we all know it was a false thing. i have been frustrated by the lack of someone in charge on the biggest national security fiasco in a generation. there has been 0 accountability, no responsibility from anybody. we have poured cash and blood and credibility into a ghani government. that was a mirage. it fell immediately. we were binding to the big lot, the big lie that this, that this was ever going to be successful near. here's the thing. there's only 3 possibilities here. either the president lie to the american people,
9:06 am
or he legitimately cannot remember the counsel of his top military advisors in winding down the longest war in american history. or you have not been fully accurate under oath. we didn't have a president that was so adult. you all would be fired, but it's not just the pull out to spend a tack. the entire afghan campaigns now coming in for increasing criticism is kellum open. explain a testimony before congress was damning. not only was the pull out of afghanistan fiasco, but the campaign failed. to achieve its primary aim, it was an extraordinary disaster. it will go down in history is one of the greatest failures of american leadership. we have 0 presence in afghanistan. it could be as little as 12 months before al qaeda will use afghanistan as a base conduct as a base to conduct air strikes or strikes against the united states. frankly, after this debacle of withdrawal. i don't think any one can trust anything. this president says about afghanistan, we need to consider some uncomfortable truce that we did not fully comprehend the
9:07 am
depth of corruption and poor leadership and their senior ranks. that we did not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp why there was only so much for which and for home. many of the afghan forces would fight. so after an entire war aimed to eliminate a terrorist threat to america, that threat could now be worse to real possibility in the not too distant future, 612182436 months that time the time frame for re constitution about kite are isis terrorist organizations seek ungoverned spaces so that they can train and equip and thrive. and there is clearly a possibility that that can happen. here are going forward. afghanistan in effect now has become an entire terrace state taliban, even though they may think that they're trying to govern that place itself to slit
9:08 am
and already we're seeing isis attacking caliber and there's no guarantee then that taliban can ensure that attacks will not be planned. and launched from that from afghanistan, thought there were more revelations in the testimony, apparently behind closed doors. the biden administration was more divided on afghanistan. i think while we is conceivable that you could stay there, my view was that you would have had to deploy more forces in order to protect ourselves and accomplish any mission that we would have been assign. it appears that the department of defense was not fully on board with pulling out of afghanistan, and they are arguing for maintaining some presence in the country. my view was that we needed to maintain about 2500. and that we also needed to work with our coalition partners. we had about 6000 troops. and there nato and other court countries that would, that would remain there. this flies in the face of the biden administration's claim
9:09 am
that pulling out was the unanimous decision. it's unclear what would really change if the united states stayed in the country. it has been 20 years after all, and the security situation in afghanistan has not improved. so maybe the mistake wasn't pulling out in 2021, but rather going in in 2001. now that's a discussion you won't hear on capitol hill, but it's probably taking place in many american minds for officials on capitol hill to attribute that. so lee, to the somewhat chaotic withdrawal from afghanistan is completely absurd. if the u. s. officials had dealt with these crime on september the 11th as what they were and found out who was responsible and brought them to justice. and, you know, they sort of being, you know, at this point something that just something that happened 20 years ago that was
9:10 am
dealt with. instead, they used september the 11th as a pretext for 20 years of war. what the so called war on terror was doing was fueling tech terrorism, and the jesse armed resistance in country after country the united states has, has actually increased the risk of terrorism. meanwhile, human rights groups are fuming over decision by the international criminal court to resume a probe into war crimes in afghanistan, but to no longer look at allegations of american atrocities that instead the focus will be exclusively on the taliban. and i says, k, i have decided to focus my offices investigations and have ganesh tap on crimes allegedly committed by the taliban. and these la mc state. and to de prioritize other aspects of this investigation that travino was set up in 2002 as a court which could only interfere of perpetrators of war crimes could not be
9:11 am
brought to justice by a country's authorities. spent over a decade investigating war crumbs by all sides and of gunston. but last year the u . s. imposed sanctions on 2 officials from that court should should started a probe into us more atrocities. oh. busy busy ringback i earlier in september a u. s. military investigation confirmed that the drone attack was a tragic mistake and offered an apology of fighting backtrack tone. the vehicle it said was initially linked to isis k, saying it was unlikely it posed any threat to the u. s. pull out from afghanistan, however, relatives of the victims are convinced those responsible for the attack should be
9:12 am
sentenced. asthma cali's illness laws, i will keep demanding that each person who has committed a crime here must be convicted and punished with the due process of all it's unfair . if the person commits a crime and then a different person has brought to court to answer on the criminal must be punished on no scapegoat mazda. if americans committed a crime, they must be brought to justice. they should be held to account that americans attack our house, not the taliban law. the taliban will answer for this attack is illogical. thank you, without internationally the weekly with me, kevin, over here today. thanks for checking in with us. know, coming up former cia boss, might pompeo implicated in reports the agency planned to murder to sarge. we are across it if you didn't said stay with us. i'll recap it all for you. don't worry. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess from
9:13 am
the world politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed? what will make you feel safer? high selection for community. are you going the right way, or are you being led to somewhere? which direction? what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend her join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah
9:14 am
ah ah ah, i get it was a real d, c. i a part of a kid. now poor assassinate, the wikileaks found the julian sans when he was in the ecuadorian embassy, london, a while back the u. s. media report based on statements from 34 my us officials and sent it, might pompeo, while he was the director of the agency during the time donald trump was empower, pompei was denied the accusations on a deed, once action taken now against those who made them. or they should all be prosecuted for speaking about classified activity inside the central intelligence agency. maybe they didn't, maybe as the cap just made it up. but you should, i take seriously my responsibilities to protect that information. this can be seen as pompoms confirmation of the assange kit,
9:15 am
not all kill story. why else would you want to prosecute those sources? speaking about classified activity, kidnap ariel man, hunt and shootout with russian spies and central london. a new james bond movie. not exactly. in fact, these are the highlights from a reported cia secret plan to silence the journalist already who revealed americans for dirty secrets. location london, the year 2017 starting julian, a sorry, a man of interest. heidi ecuadorian embassy might compare, then c, i achieve evil mastermind behind the operation. the russkies. the essential ingredient for any good spy story that the cia will break every possible law to silence independent journalist. stay to the upcoming details may surprise you. we are rewarding. chapter one,
9:16 am
assassination. mike compared wanted the cia to be creates instructor ordinance not to self censor themselves. when it comes to dealing wiki links. sometimes, oh tricks work best they might have thought and came up with a good old assassination plot. detailed sketches options on how to murder sounds. reportedly we discussed in the whiteness on the highest possible level. why would a cia achieve plots of the killing of an independent journalist? well, it was an act of personal vendetta. back in march 2017, the newly appointed cia chief found himself in a very difficult position when wikileaks released top secrets yay papers. they were completely detached from reality because they were so embarrassed about vault 7. they were seen blood chapter to kidnapping. but somebody in the white house might have thought paid, no killings where
9:17 am
a civilized nation that's kidnapped this journalist and sentenced him to death by american law. the plan was simply break into the embassy drag assange out and bring him to where we want one small issue. the u. s. justice department failed to keep up with cia fantasies. they were still processing the case and didn't filed charges against the wikileaks founda. so the cia was going to kidnap a foreign citizen from the capital of washington's closest ally with no legal basis tool. a perfect master black deed do could possibly spoil the fun russians of course, chapter 3, fighting russians. what if vladimir putin intelligence gets there? first of dumps a sound and then flies him to moscow. that's a possibility. the paranoid ca offices thought brace yourself. the plan to counts of russians may just blow your mind. the cia left nothing to chance. the sand
9:18 am
gets into the car with the russian operatives. a cia initiates a car crash with a russian diplomatic vehicle. god knows how many other londoners collateral damage is. they say, assange gets on the plane. the cia blocks, it's on the runway by shooting its tires, as well as anything. and anybody else of the way the plane takes off with a flat tire, the c, i a hovers a helicopter over, it still manages to leave the ground. they demand the european countries close by rasping. we are still talking about catching julian assange, not the number one terrorist. oh, well, if you are an independent journalist who happens to cross the american governments pass the cia, it's pretty much the same thing. rule of law may not surprise you. but for now, jew sons' remains at a maximum security prison in the u. k. despite the british judge ruling against his
9:19 am
expedition to united states over phase about his mental health, he faces a 175 years in prison in america, where he's wanted on charges of hacking and espionage. in 2019 assange was forcibly removed by police from the ecuadorian embassy in london after the country terminated his 7 year salem. they're following the recent developments we heard from a former c i a analyst, a whistleblower, and also wikileaks editor in chief. when you so stunning revelation is quite shocking to see let this was being conquered in the states, so the kidnapping them graham also be killing if julian is expedited to to the other states, it will be in the hands of the seo his faith on you as ground it would be in the hands of those who were planning to kill helium. when these discussions were going on, there was no indictment out against julia. he hadn't been charged with anything. so if there was any doubt about the political nature of the indictment and the creation of the day when the entire case,
9:20 am
it is now on for him to be so it is of political persecution and nothing else. the world understand that the united states is trying to criminalize journalism. they refused to accept the fact that julian assange is a journalist, that the american people own this information and they have the right to know what it is. and that the government behind their backs, the backs of the american people, is trying to assassinate someone who has not been kid victim of a crime. in one of the things that we learned in this article was dad, the british intelligence serves the external intelligence service. and my sex was apparently involved, you know, where they were talking about, shoot out the potential for shoot outs in front of the, at, with dorian embassy. that was the british that were supposed to be doing the shooting when they talk about shooting out the, the tires of a russian plane that might have been taking jillian assigned to, to russia. and that was the british that were supposed to be doing the shooting. so
9:21 am
i would certainly hope that the british courts finally say enough is enough. there is no way that julianna's sons should or could be extradited to the united states, and he should be free to go. russia threatening to block you tube off the video sharing service. deleted ortiz, german language channels, and the week for allegedly bridge and community guidelines. monica describe the move as an act of unprecedented information, aggression with russia's foreign ministry, noting that the measures against our tea could not have been taken without berlin's approval. there is no doubt that youtube was acting with the open and tacit support of the german government and taking these unjust measures. they have exposed correspondence of russian broadcasters to years long harassment, including the blocking of bank accounts and public slander. the purpose of this aggression against the russian media holdings projects is obvious to drown out sources of information that clashed with
9:22 am
a media background that is comfortable for german officialdom. the german governments denied the allegations still harvey spoke. corresponding company was calling about the ban and the possible ramifications then or, you know, the popularity of r t in germany among the germans speaking the audience has been grow in, especially in the recent years. and just to give you some numbers. artie doors had a total of almost $547000000.00 views and over 600000 subscribers and not a small youtube channel that placed it among the top german news channels on that platform. so artie doors has managed to put up a fight against major german news outlets. and of course this hasn't gone unnoticed . odd, there are a lot of politicians in germany who have repeatedly called for curves on our tea in a in the country. and rti has been struggling to start a teeny broadcast in germany for many years, facing both overton hayden resistance. so all in all is been an extremely harsh
9:23 am
environment. hostile environment for our fellow colleagues in germany. so these been, seem like kosh treatment what, what was the, the potential crime that was committed? well, as usual in these cases, the response from a media platform is vague and ye tube send our colleagues in germany message saying that there were, quote repeated violations of community guidelines. so, you know, that's it. you get out of the platform. google, which owns you tube, a gave us a more detailed response. so let's have a listen. ye cheap has clear community guidelines which explain what is allowed on the platform. i'll t deutsch was issued a warning for uploading content that violates our rules in relation to cov, at 19 medical misinformation policy. this results in the suspension of their right to upload videos during the suspension. the channels owners tried to bypass the restrictions by using a different channel. as a result, both channels were closed for violating you cheap times of service. so to give you some context, our 1st rti george, his main youtube channel law,
9:24 am
was given several code related stripes and that led to a temporary suspension. so because the main page was suspended, its team decided to continue sharing his content on different page that belongs to one of its, ah shows. ah, it was different content. ah, not that which had been flagged by youtube, of course. but nonetheless, both pages were completely deleted by youtube without any warning. now what's interesting is that there are no clear rules saying that you can a run a separate page, or maybe even start a new page if you are suspended on youtube for whatever reason. besides those 4 videos in question that rti doors receive strikes for are contained criticism of the government's approach of the pandemic voiced by other medical experts not by journalists. so ah, to claim that this was medical. a miss information, misinterpretation. well, in the eyes of archie george that saw debatable so his aunty denying in the wrong
9:25 am
doings it challenging this boy. while they were saying that they received an unfair treatment. and actually the 1st to common on that story in russia was our own editor in chief museum cook, who the leads for several months before a chance were vans. if the german media had been publishing the care stories about r t, german becoming so influential to significantly according to their own calculations . whereas the 4th in terms of in the ones i feel in germany were bigger than well, you were bigger than germany's own. shines like, don't you? well, no one expected that of course i also didn't expect that to happen so quickly. i mean, that would attract, so beacon audience, i'll have so much success. edaly made us out to be a bogeyman. they refused to give us a license. would it be forbade banks for working with that? tell them if they pressured luxembourg so we couldn't get a license narrowly bond went all that in the warrant that he deleted us from you to you know, using far fetched brita example. that was predictable because no normal person believes that freedom of speech exists in this countries. the question is how rush
9:26 am
respond? i am, we're looking forward to it or just foreign ministry spokeswoman muddy. the ha also weighed in by saying that would just happen. ah, was an act of aggression and that there is going to be a symmetrical response to directed at german media work and in russia. now the message shed didn't clarify what exactly that means. but i guess her, our german colleagues working here should be bracing for a bumpy road ahead. it got sold. so alex, on the neu, from germany's the left part, you know, so william a, who's a politician for germany's ruling christie and democrats. they say it's a step towards backwards rather for press freedom in europe. does this in oh, clearly this situation does not with european freedom in a positive light home. we have to acknowledge that deny mediaspace has been subject to seth a ship and manipulation which reminds me of the worst times in germany on it. it's in our interests for our see to make an even greater contribution to german and european media diversity. as i said before,
9:27 am
r t has become an integral component of european press freedom. we are citizens, have the right to be informed and have access to high quality journalist regardless of its origin. others fitness. i considered it a challenging situations and now the russian point of view, public or political is being more and more surprised. what you do. it does not have a particularly good reputation in germany, not with readers, but rather among their colleagues. they don't like r t george because it has broken their monopoly on the dictator with lenient in german journalist journalists who practice journalists that preaches do authorities instead of critical turner. not like such competition. or they don't like it that a mirror has been put in front of them in which they can see what they really she's doing. keeping close are not news, communicable, and explosion that earlier on our st. correspondence there. but to meantime, a snapshot of varied and many stories have brought you over the 7 days that was in the weekly. thank you for watching out international this weekend. my name's kevin owen, from the team. enjoy the rest of it. oh,
9:28 am
i'm nice guys. are more of my guy to finance all survival. this is a hedge fund. it's a device used by professional scale. you eggs to earn money. that's right. these headphones are completely not accountable, and we're just adding more more to them. totally, the stabilize the global economy. you need to protect yourself and get in for a if you would expect to be of longer meant to be in b a, c. and i'm sorry, this is
9:29 am
a wrong expect nation. you will have to see a peculiarity. you can't impose the democratic system of a plant involved and then political order for a speaking in your portion of the countries for signing up, which i can look for what asian you feel from. well, we'll stop pushed a little a, discover this as a sophistic system. name, i've noticed with
9:30 am
mr. mitchell, i lose any fact that asks your marriage with a little girl and give me a lot. oh mm. mm. the way we look the color of our eyes and have the shape of on news, these traits all embedded in on dna and passed from generation to generation. interesting, but i want to have them cuz apiece maybe deposited with mr. mitchell, located where does your school, what college think you will give? i mean, why don't the whole she's to me, adults by short jokes. got to them like is much to what with me. we asked geneticists about some of the rest features people might have. after all, there's
