11:00 am
start crying about them dying. that's usually what it's about as the sheer unfairness of it all. ah, top stories, this are an art series 12 who reportedly killed and more than 30 injured in a blasted cobbles, 2nd biggest most today, the taliban saying it's detained. 3 people allegedly responsible it was an extraordinary disaster. if we didn't have a president, it was so adult. you all would be fired. i don't think anyone can trust anything this president says about against on in top storage the week just gone. you're slow, mike, his lambaste president. bide not as top ross to of what some in congress cool washington's humiliating withdrawal from afghanistan. we are. so if the whole afghan campaign might be a big failure than just the pull out itself, a bombshell reporter ledges the cia plan to kidnap or assassinate wiki leagues
11:01 am
found. the julian assange, the agencies former chief, my pompei of at the center of the plot. plus russia threatens to block youtube off to the video sharing platform permanently deletes odds east german language channels. moscow believes the u. s. company would not have acted without approval from berlin. ah, hello. this under 3rd of october live from ortiz world use edge to moscow. welcome to the weekly with me, kevin. now in this hour, i looked back at some of the main headlines and stories of the last 7 days. we brought you what was starting with developing story from the african capital that came in the south to noon 1st. where the death told reportedly climb to 12 his afternoon in a blast of the leading cowboy mosque. the attack so so left more than 30 injured, not his moored guest, he of 2 colt exposed himself and aid reports from the city. we had the blast clod
11:02 am
clearly, even though this distance for kilometers, till it got mosque, where the explosion took place, and it was evidently a powerful blast by the, by the sound that it made even, even at that distance. also, it is not surprising that the number of casualties is being revised upwards. that is the patent to these things. usually, the 1st count that we hear is on the low side of things. 3 people, the taliban says, have been arrested in connection with this blast. that is unclear what organization they belong to or what their role in this explosion was. but according to our unconfirmed reports at the time of the blood was a funeral. and away at the most the funeral of the mother recently deceased mother of the taliban spokespersons a beulah maggio head. so perhaps it may have been isis. it's usually ease them who,
11:03 am
who claim responsibility in these latest attacks that have been happening all over all over afghanistan. especially here in couple of we regularly here and read about fire fights, raids carried out by the taliban. them trying to track down cracked down and isis k cells here. and i've got to saw the 2 organizations have been at war for years now . and the taliban is evidently trying to solidify its control over afghanistan. there was also another attack yesterday that has been attributed by locals to isis k, whereby they say that are the terrorists drove by? ah taliban taliban members and began firing at them in a drive by attacking the in a vehicle attack with where 4 people were killed and another attack. another part of, of galveston. an attack on a taliban convoy, which has also been attributed to isis at 17 people,
11:04 am
was said to have been killed in that. so suddenly that violence, the spot, the end of the afghan war, the pull out of american and allied troops at violence here in afghanistan hasn't abated. i'm wanting a back a bit this week. so tough talks in congress as us lawmakers lashed out and joe biden, and his military commanders over the afghan withdrawal. humiliating is just one of the ways the pallets has been described. the president said, none of his commanders said that he should keep troops in afghanistan was on a false statement by the president as remembered. 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 state. 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
11:05 am
a mirage. it fell immediately. we were buying into the big law, the big law 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, 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 the spin attack. the entire afghan campaign is now coming in for increasing criticism. has kellum open explains a testimony before congress was dancing? not only was the pull out of afghanistan, a 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
11:06 am
a base to conduct airstrikes or strikes against the united states. frankly, after this debacle of a withdrawal. i don't think anyone controls anything. this president says about afghanistan. we need to consider some uncomfortable truce that we did not fully comprehend the depth of corruption and poor leadership and nursing your 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. going forward. afghanistan,
11:07 am
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 and already we're seen 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
11:08 am
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 core countries that would, that would remain there. this flies in the face of the biden administration's claim 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 way 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
11:09 am
brought them to justice. you know, this would have been, you know, at this point something that just something that happened 20 years ago that was 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 adjacent armed resistance in country after country the united states has, has actually increased risk of terrorism. meantime, side to over human rights groups. a fuming over a decision by the international criminal court to resume a probe into war crimes in afghanistan, but to no longer no could allegations of american atrocities the. instead, the focus will be exclusively on the taliban on ices k. i have therefore decided to focus my overseas investigations enough gun histone on crimes allegedly committed
11:10 am
by the taliban and the islamic state correson province on to d. prioritize other aspects of this investigation. the prosecutors telling war criminals around the world that the u. s. playback of delay and intimidation works . it also validates one of the cool criticisms of the i, c. c that it only takes action against politically weaker individuals or nations while giving western powers a pass. by d prioritizing, investigating us and for the afghan national security forces, the i c, c prosecutor is shamefully hunting and the get out of jail. free card tribunal is set up in 2002 as a court, which could only interfere if perpetrators of war crimes couldn't be brought to justice by our country's authorities. it sped over a decade, investigating war crimes by all sides and afghanistan. but last year, the u. s. and post sanctions on 2 officials from the court, which had started to probe into u. s. war atrocities. oh,
11:11 am
i earlier in september appendix prob admitted the drone, as i was a tragic was taken off in an apology, backtracked on the target at initially claims linked to i says k say it was unlikely. it actually posed any threat to washington polo from afghanistan, relative to the victim. say the u. s. officials responsible for the attack must be brought to justice. asthma can lay deloney last. i will keep demanding that each person who has committed a crime here must be convicted and punished with the due process of law. it's unfair. if a person commits a crime and then a different person is brought to court, to answer, the criminal must be punished. no scapegoats. if americans committed a crime,
11:12 am
they must be brought to justice. they should be held to account americans attack our house, not the taliban. how the taliban will answer for this attack is a logical fact. i switching out international law this we can, we will appreciate it here. now let me tell you what's ahead. as we look back on the big stories a week for we see i boss might. pompei was implicated in reports the agency plan to murder julian the san ah ah.
11:13 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess with the world of politics, sport, business, i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm. ah ah hello good. so it's been reveal the cia plotted to kidnap or a saturday,
11:14 am
the wiki lisa during the sargje when he was in the ecuadorian embassy in london a while back. the u. s. media report was based on statements from 30 former u. s. officials and senator mike pompei of who the time was director of the agency during the time donald trump was empower. pompei was denied the accusations, and indeed now was action taken against the people who made the claims 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 pompei ions, confirmation of the assange kit, not or kill story. why else would you want to prosecute those sources? speaking about classified activity, kinetic aerial man hunt and shootout with russian spies in 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 40 who revealed americans for
11:15 am
dirty secrets. location, london, the year 20. 17 starting julian. a sorry, a man of interest. hiding yet the door and embassy might compel. then c, i achieve evil mastermind behind the operation. the russkies. the essential ingredient for any good spice dory. down the cia with break every possible law to silence independent journalist stay tune. the upcoming details may surprise you. we are recording chapter one, assassination. mike compared wanted the cia to be creates the instructor, subordinates not to self center 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 and options on how to murder sounds. reportedly we discussed in
11:16 am
the white house on the fires 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 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
11:17 am
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 plant accounts of russians may just blow your mind. the cia left nothing to chance. besides, it gets into the car with the russian operatives. a cia initiates a car crash with the 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,
11:18 am
as well as anything. and anybody else's 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 that the european countries closed, their rasping. we're 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 apply, you know, but for now, julia sans remains at a maximum security prison in the u. k. to sputter british judge ruling against his expedition to the united states over face about his mental health. he faced his 175 years in prison and 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 asylum. they're following the recent developments we heard from a former c i analyst and whistleblower,
11:19 am
and also wiki leaks editor in chief for you. so stunning the revolution is quite shocking to see that this was being conquered, cousins 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 kick up, kill him. 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, it is now on for him to be so it is a 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 on witness information and they have the right to know
11:20 am
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 service, the external intelligence service, and my sex, was apparently involved, you know, where they were talking about, shoot out the potential pursued outs in front of the, at, with dorian embassy. that was the british that were supposed to be doing this shooting when they talk about shooting out the, the tires of a russian plane that might have been taking jillian assigned to, to russia. that was the british that were supposed to be doing the shooting. so 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 hear news in the way that rushes threatening to block you tube. after the video sharing service deleted our tease german language channels in
11:21 am
the week for allegedly bridge and community guidelines. moscow described the move as an act of unprecedented information, aggression, with russia's foreign ministry, noting the measures against r. t could not have been taken without berlin's approval. there is no doubt that unity was acting with the open and tacit support of the german government in taking these unjust measures. they've exposed correspondence, the russian broadcast as 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 clash with a media background that is comfortable for german official them. the german government is denied. the allegations neil harvey spoke to corresponding konstantin rose coff about the banner, the possible ramifications 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
11:22 am
a total of almost 547000000 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, george has managed to put up a fight against major german news outlets. and of course that hasn't gone unnoticed . odd, there are a lot of politicians in germany who have repeatedly called for curves on r t 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 its been an extremely harsh environment, hostile environment for our fellow colleagues in germany. so these bands seem like kosh treatment. what, what was the, the potential crime that was committed while, 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,
11:23 am
that's it. you get out of the platform, google, which owns you tube. a gave is a more detailed response. so let's have a listen. ye cheap has clear community guidelines which explain what is allowed on the platform. all t deutsche was issued a warning for uploading content that violates our rules in relation to cov, at 19 medical misinformation policy. this resulted 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, violating you cheap times of service. so to give us some context, our 1st orthogeorgia may need have channel law was given several code related strikes and that led to a temporary suspension. so because the main page was suspended, its team decided to continue sharing its content on different page that belongs to one of its, ah shows. ah, it was different content. ah,
11:24 am
not that which had been flag 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 and 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 mis information, misinterpretation well in the eyes of archie george that saw debatable so his aunty denying in the wrong doings it challenging this phone while they were saying that they receive an unfair treatment. and actually, 1st to common on that story in russia was our own editor in chief museum cook. the leads for several months before a channels were banned, the german media had been publishing care stories about
11:25 am
r t. german becoming 2 influential to significant according to their own calculations, were ranked forth in terms of influence in germany were bigger than, well were bigger than germany's own chinese like daughter. well, no one expected that of course, we also didn't expect that to happen so quickly. i mean that would attract so big an audience, have so much success. they made us out to be a bogeyman. they refused to give us a license. they forbade banks for working with us. they pressured luxembourg, so we couldn't get a license there. and when all that didn't work, they deleted us from youtube using a far fetched pretext. that was predictable because no normal person believes that freedom of speech exists in this countries. the question is how we rush respond. we're looking forward to it. as 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,
11:26 am
but i guess her are german colleagues working here should be bracing for a bumpy road ahead. yeah, well we got the thoughts in the week of alexandra neu, from germany's the left part in also william a, who's a politician for germany, shooting christian democrats. and they both said in their view, it's a step backwards for press. freedom in europe does isn't. oh, clearly this situation does not put european freedom in a positive light. we have to acknowledge the deny mediaspace has been subject to censorship and manipulation, which reminds me of the worst times in germany. it's in our interests for our see to make an even greater contribution to german and european media diversity. as i've said before, r t has become an integral component of european press freedom. we as citizens have the right to be informed and have access to high quality journalists, regardless of its origin fitness. i considered it a challenging situation that now the russian point of view, public, or political, is being more and more suppressed. archie deutsch does not have a particularly good reputation in germany, not with readers,
11:27 am
but rather among their colleagues. they don't like artie deutsche, because it has broken their monopoly and the dictate of opinion in german journalists and journalists who practice journalism that praises new authorities, instead of critical journalists, do not like such competition. they don't like it that a mirror has been put in front of them in which they can see what they really should be doing. will continue to track their store and you can follow everything we're talking about as what an r t dot com or whatever social media have you'll say to go on. great to have yet shoot in hope you enjoy the rest your weekend and thank you for watching. i'll to international. oh, no one. no, sir. no, no, admiral who job? no, no. what door? more shrill than what they should up unit 73. 1 was
11:28 am
a unique organization in the history of the world. what they were trying to do was to simply do nothing short and build the most powerful and most deadly biological weapons program that the world had ever no real good, you know, to production with it. so give sure, sure, go ahead that they're not eligible. no new son, new rochelle, he unmoved monica general manager, thought this is meant new them all, one of up on there and i got all my sale. i got your name up. i go on monday. i wish to know about joy. oh, new. i know you didn't or got one more. polished enough cheerios . i had a puddle of disco. their mother and all your body built

11:30 am
imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what other chapters called gun violence school shootings, homelessness. first it was my job and then it was my family building was my savings . i have nothing, i have nothing and it's not like i don't try. i look for resources, i look for jobs, i look for everything i can to make this pass. and i end up doing is passing the road to the american dream paved with dead refugees. it's this very idealized image . all those older america, native americans look past the deaths that happen every single day. this is a modern history of the usa. my america monarchy. ah.
