12:00 pm
on this talk to my annuity annoyance, i can send more on all salmon kids in a year and put them out there to keep us together. this house headlines from i'd say at least 12 people who reportedly killed more than 30 injured in a blast. a cobble 2nd biggest mosque. taliban says it has already detained 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 controls anything. this prisoner says about afghanistan and some of the top stories of the week just gone us lawmakers land passed president bike man is top ross of a what some in congress called washington's humiliating withdrawal from afghanistan . we ask though, if the whole afghan campaign might be a big failure,
12:01 pm
that just to pull out itself bombshell reports allegedly cia plan to kidnap or assassinate wikileaks found a julian assange, while the agencies or former chief might, pompei was at the center of the plot. plus russia threatened to block you tube after the video sharing platform permanently deleted out these german language channels. moscow believes the u. s. company would not have acted without approval from berlin. ah said though the 3rd of october life marty's world news h q era, moscow has just turned 7 pm here. now welcome to the weekly with me, kevin owen. i look back to some of the main headlines of the last 7 days of miss starting with something that happened this afternoon. that developing story him from the afghan capital. the latest is the death toll has climbed in the last few
12:02 pm
hours to 12 in a blast to the leading cobble mosque. the attack also left more than 30 injured at his senior correspondent caught the explosion himself and report from the city. we heard the blast clod clearly, even at this distance 4 kilometers tow it, gar 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 blas. it 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 the way at the most the funeral of the mother recently deceased
12:03 pm
mother of the taliban. spokespersons i beulah maggio head. so perhaps it may have been isis. it's usually ease them who, who claim responsibility in these latest attacks that have been happening all over all over afghanistan. and 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 of 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
12:04 pm
of, of galveston. an attack on a taliban convoy, which has also been attributed to isis at 17 people, was said to have been killed in that so suddenly violence, the spot, the end of the afghan. mo, the pull out of american and allied troops, violence here in of gaston, hasn't abated malott's today in the last few days, wanting a back even more this week. so tough talks in congress as us lawmakers lashed out a joe biden and his military commanders over the afghan withdrawal. humiliating is just one of the ways the pullet was described. the president said, none of his commanders said that he should keep troops in afghanistan was at a false statement by the president. as 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 let's think we all know it was a false statement. 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,
12:05 pm
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 buying into the big lie, 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 lied 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 all just the polar. there's been a tightly entire afghan campaigns now coming in for increasing criticism. as calum 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
12:06 pm
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 kato will use afghanistan as a base conduct as a base to conduct airstrikes or strikes against the united states. frankly, after this debacle of a withdrawal, i don't think anyone can trust 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 their senior ranks. that we did not grass the damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp what 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,
12:07 pm
the time frame for re constitution about god 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 terrorist 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 them that taliban can ensure that the attacks will not be planned. and launched from that from afghanistan, but there were more revelations in the testimony, apparently behind closed doors. the biden administration was more divided on afghanistan. i think a 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
12:08 pm
mission that we would have been assigned. 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 their 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
12:09 pm
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, 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. while human rights groups have fuming over a decision by the international criminal court to resume a probe into war, crumbs and of gun is done, but to no longer look at allegations of american atrocities the. instead,
12:10 pm
the focus to be exclusively on the tell about and i says k, i have therefore decided to focus my offices investigations, enough. galveston on crimes allegedly committed by the taliban and the islamic state correson province onto 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, it's shamefully hunting and the get out of jail free card. the tribunal was set up in 2002 as a court, which had only into fear of perpetrators of war crimes, couldn't be brought to justice by a country's authorities. it spent more than a decade investigating war crowns by all sides,
12:11 pm
enough canister. but the u. s and post sanctions on 2 officials from that court which had started a probe into u. s. war atrocities. the i c. c decision is particularly disturbing for rights organizations as it comes in the wake of august's disastrous drone strike on by the pentagon on kabul, which kill 10 civilians including 7 children. oh . busy busy i live in september, a pentagon pro admitted the drone attack was a tragic mistake, offered an apology and backtrack to on the target initially claimed was linked to ices, k saying it was unlikely, it actually posed any threat to washington pull out from afghanistan, relatives of the victim say the u. s. officials responsible for the attack must be
12:12 pm
brought to justice. as my canadian is lost, i will keep demanding the 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, 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 go ahead pharmacy i bought my pompei as implicated reports. the agency plan to merge unit assange. talk about it coming up. ah, hello, driven by drill shaped banks, concur. some of those with
12:13 pm
dares sinks we dare to ask ah ah, ah
12:14 pm
ah, again, so has been revealed in the week the cia polity to kidnap or assassinate. the wiki leagues found the julian assange when he was in the ecuador, an embassy in london, a while back. the u. s. media reporting was based on statements from 30 former u. s. officials and sent it might pompeo. while he was director of the agency during his time under donald trump on pay was denied the accusations and indeed was action taken now 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 pompoms confirmation of the assange kit, not or kill story. why else would you want to prosecute those sources?
12:15 pm
speaking about classified activity, kinetic ariel man hunt and shootout with russian spies in central london. the 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 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 caea would break every possible law to silence independent journalist stay tune. the upcoming details may surprise you. we are rewarding chapter one assassination. mike compared wanted the cia to be create. the instructor,
12:16 pm
subordinates not to self sense of 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 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 secret ca 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
12:17 pm
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 file charges against the wikileaks found. 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 1st, a dunce assange, and then flies him to moscow? that's a possibility. the paranoid ca offices thought brace yourself, the plans accounts of russians may just blow your mind. the cia left nothing to chance. the sand gets into the car with the russian operatives. a cia initiates
12:18 pm
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. as well as anything and anybody else's way the plane takes off with a flat tire. the cia hub is 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, sarge. 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, gillian sons remains in a maximum security prison in the u. k. despite a british judge ruling against his extradition to the united states over face, but as mental health, he faces a 175 years in prison in america,
12:19 pm
where he's wanted on charges of hacking and espionage in 2019 assange, you will recall 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 had from a former c i analyst, a whistleblower, also wikileaks, editor in chief. the you so stunning revolution is quite shocking to see that this was being conquered, cousins in the states, so the kidnapping them also please 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 an entire case, it is now on for him to be so it is of political persecution and nothing else. the
12:20 pm
world to 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 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 ecuadorian 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. and 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.
12:21 pm
there's no way that julian assigns should or could be extradited to the united states, and he should be free to go. russia threatening to blow youtube after the video sharing service deleted our tease german language channels in the week for allegedly preaching community guidelines. masika described the move as an act of unprecedented information, aggression with russia's foreign ministry, noting dimensions 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 in taking these unjust measures. they've exposed correspondence, the russian bro cost as to years long harassment, including the booking of bank accounts and publics. london. the purpose of this aggression against the russian media holdings projects is obvious to drown out sources of information that clash with the media background that is comfortable for german officialdom. the german government is denied the allegations mil hobby's
12:22 pm
vote to correspond konstantin roscoe for the week about the ban of the possible ramifications. or, you know, the popularity of r t in germany among the germans speaking audience has been growing, 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, george 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 r t in a in the country. and rti has been struggling to start a teeny broadcast in germany for many years are facing both overton hayden resistance. so all in all is been an extremely harsh environment. hostile environment for our fellow colleagues in germany. so these bands seem like cost
12:23 pm
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 sand. 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 i gave as a more detailed response. so let's have a listen. ye cheap has clay 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 coven 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, violating you cheap terms of service. so to give you some context, our 1st artie george, his main youtube channel law, was given several code related stripes and that led to
12:24 pm
a temporary suspension. so because the main page was suspended, its team decided to continue sharing his content on a 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 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 is ality denying and the wrong doings it challenging this man. while they're saying that
12:25 pm
they receive an unfair treatment. and actually the 1st to common on that story in russia was our own editor in chief museum, co deletes for several months before a chance were banned. the german media had been publishing care stories about 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. shines. like, don't you, ellen? 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 of 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 or should foreign ministry spokeswoman muddy the heart of law also we'd in by saying that would just happen. ah,
12:26 pm
was an act of aggression and that there was going to be a symmetrical response directed at german media working in russia. now, the message should, didn't clarify what exactly that means, but i guess her art driven colleagues working here should be bracing for a bumpy road ahead. it would go again that no, we got the thoughts of alexander neu from germany's the left party. no, sir william o, who's a politician for germany's rude and christian democratic, the both said in the view, it was a step backwards for press freedom in europe doesn't oh clearly this situation does not with european freedom in a positive light. we have to acknowledge the deny mediaspace has been subject to seth a ship and manipulation which reminds me of the worst times in germany. it's in our interest 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,
12:27 pm
regardless of its origin. fitness, you know, 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, but rather among their colleagues. they don't like our t deutsche, because it has broken their monopoly and the dictate of opinion in german journalists and journalists who practice journalism that preaches the authorities instead of critical journalist, 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. and that's a snapshot of the many and varied stores he brought you and for round the world of the last 7 days. thank you for watching us international this weekend. you fun so much more as i was on a main sites and socials here in moscow, kevin and kevin o' insulting of colleen brazier off to that difficult real name for a minute, sir. i think i'll say go by and hopefully say at the same times to morrow. good bye . aah!

12:30 pm
imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what other chapters, cold gun violence, school shootings, homelessness? first, it was my job and then it was my family. didn't was my savings. i have nothing. i have nothing. it is 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 this passing time, the road to the american dream paved with dead refugees. it's very idealized image of our america, native americans look past a dance that happened every single day. this is a modem history of the usa, my america. oh now t ah
