1:03 pm
happened some hours ago was being held at the methodist church in south end, which is just outside of central london. when a young man wielding a knife run into the methodist church and attacked the veteran politician at that point. and ambulance attended to the c. paramedics treated him to see where he was fighting for his life for tragically, he passed away, jo, being confirmed at around 3 p. m. the incident, as i say, happened some hours before that and the police have released a statement about this incident saying that a suspect of 25 year old man has now been arrested. they are saying that they are not looking for anybody else in relation to this incident, suggesting that the suspect was acting alone. and this is not a live incident, but it's certainly a closed matter. we don't know anything about the suspect, other than the fact that he is
1:04 pm
a 25 years of age. we don't know his motivation nor his thinking behind this incident since the news of his passing just an hour ago. so we've seen tributes and statements pouring in across the political spectrum a bit about. so david amos then as he's 69, he was husband and father 25 children. he spent 4 decades, at least in politics in the united kingdom, holding his seats in since 1997. now people in the local community have been flocking to social media saying that absolutely heart broken. they felt that he really was a member of parliament that put that positionings and thoughts and passion really as a full front of his own politics. they say that he use his parliamentary platform to advocate for them. now many people are also calling for more security and safety
1:05 pm
procedures and policies and measures for members of parliament. of course, this is not the 1st time that start to tragic incident has taken place. this is a 2nd m p that has lost their lives in just 5 years. of course we cost online back to another very doc moment in british history, whereby jo, clock, a member of parliament was stabbed, and shot to death back in 2016. nice. just to incident in 5 years, so many, many questions moving forward. how to protect members of parliament. obviously, there's a very harrowing incident violent and then today a complete shot, the nation as now the investigation is underway. david, a miss had been a frequent guest here on the t where he shared his opinions, his views on politics and k. joining me now for more on this is conservative m p for south and west said david amos hobbs elected on the same day. 1983 as his gentlemen, we need to have
1:06 pm
a government who know what they're doing. i don't mind hard work and in fact the army is it would go back to the size of constituents i had when i used to represent basil hamlin. i don't think is anything to do with party politics and the number of seats to david. thanks for speaking to us. we're joined live now by former u. k. counterterrorism intelligence officer, charles sure, bridge for his reaction to today's offense. charles, welcome to the program. a gruesome, heinous act. how much of a shock at was it that this happened in a church in essex when at the 69 year old mp was meeting his constituents? yes, i think just as we saw as york, our report just mentioned. in fact, of course, the killing of joe cox and only just 5 years ago and what appeared from what we know at the moment to be very similar circumstances. i think it's reasonable to say that regardless of what one might think or might not think of these individuals
1:07 pm
concerns, particular politics. this is a very sad story, i think for not just of course those people have their families and friends. but also i think it's not an understatement. sets of very sad day for british democracy itself. and i'm sure that are actually changes will be made in terms of the security aspects. but also of course, as the sergeant from himself, i think major, clear indeed, i think in a tweet actually quite recently that this kind of work where the m p, if he's going to be, or she is going to be a tree representative of people at a local level, this kind of work where they are open to meeting with constituents. it's absolutely essential, it is continues. and so what we've got is a situation i think, where in terms of going forward that a, the balance between the security needs of employees and the accessibility needs help. constituents clearly as
1:08 pm
a balance and i suspect to day that balance has probably shifted. and we'll see a consequences of that, i think in the future. and just to recap, what is known about they talk of course a murder investigation is ongoing. a 25 man has been arrested on suspicion of murder remains and custody. a knife was recovered and the force i'm not looking for anybody else in connection at with the attack and not a is the question now that that is being dealt with directly, isn't it? who are what is behind this attack? was it coordinated at what the eye witnesses are saying? that's gonna surely start to come out no soon? absolutely right. the media, what i'm source just seen, start reporting aspects of it not withstanding that. of course, at some future point, it's quite like our to spend if somebody's going to be charged. and therefore, of course, but can, i should have to end about point. but i think it's fair to say that without knowing, we don't know anything about the individual circumstances other than perhaps his age. we don't know
1:09 pm
a crucially course what the motivation is not she absolutely correctly say we don't know what other aspects to this attack there might be in terms of associations with other people and so on. now the police have stated as you'll report to karate side thought, and they stated them and looking for nobody else in connection with this instant. now that's an interesting comment to come out with so soon in an investigation either a that means that this person was perhaps holding notes a place that doesn't necessarily mean from a terrorist perspective. perhaps he was known to them anyway, and i know his background very well already. and again, this is just hopefully informed speculation, but still is none the less speculation. oh, it might be just that that statement itself was rushed out and hastened by. um, somebody working in the past relations department, possibly and said f for it might be that we don't have to attach too much stool to that statement that nobody else was is being looked for at the moment. because after all,
1:10 pm
it's thought too early for the suspects. or computers for his associates, for his fire, and to have been even retrieved. probably a mistake, let alone examined. and so it's perhaps, might turn out to be that it's premature to say that nobody else was involved. a police are looking for nobody else. again, this is all hopefully well informed speculation, but nonetheless, we have very little information to actually what we thought is current time. no, absolutely, but a succinct description of what is happening right now. as you expand on the hub, appeal for witnesses to come forward. that investigation very early in it says stage is thank you very much. form a u. k. counter terrorism, intelligence officer charles through bridge keep a us marine, has been sentenced after pleading guilty to dissipate his superiors. he had criticized the military leadership for the way they handle the afghan exit. stewart shell remains ottoman so that the top ras need to be held to account or senior
1:11 pm
correspond. murat garcia picks up the story. there is the opinion that he got off very light. all things considered the scandal that he caused winter when right up to congress and the united states military, we will know it doesn't like scandals. it does, it's best to deter for those who would start scandals and it, it squashes scandals out sometimes in a very harsh way. so it was surprising that instead of a pads jail time, perhaps a dishonorable discharge, all he was sentenced to was a $5000.00 fun, which will be dogged from his wages next month, as well as a letter of reprimand. there's told off basically. so he gets an honorable or less than honorable discharge, as well as gets the keep all of his or all the pension that he has worked up on the 17 years of service before he went into the court. ah, he said that ultimately he had to bear responsibility for his actions. just as
1:12 pm
those above him had to bear responsibility for their actions as including the chaotic withdrawal from canisters. i did what i did because i thought it was in the best long term interest of the marine corps going forward. i'm still demanding accountability. there were those who supported him. have said that, yes, this evacuation was completely humiliating. it was insulting to all the americans that sacrificed their lives who owe their health in order to fight that born of canister. and for america to leave in such a manner was absolutely tragic. there were also those that said that he should have done this because the united states military has a different code of conduct. and so they're not allowed to criticize those above them of senior rank. but ultimately, over the course of all these videos that we saw released by him in the build up to this trial, he was making one point and 11 point only that somebody must be held accountable
1:13 pm
for the disaster. as many americans see it that we saw at the end of august at the airport and cobbled people are upset because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions. not because i'm vindictive, but because the senior leader he to be held accountable to the same standard as us the terrorist attack the on the input of gobble and the 26th of august. it was a, it was a mess. there were almost 200 people killed. everybody has admitted that yes mistakes were made. but to date, nobody has decided to bear responsibility for what happened there and cobble will a taliban return to power?
1:14 pm
following the u. s. x, it has failed to improve the country security situation, at least at 37 people were reportedly killed in an attack on a mosque earlier today. more than 70 also are said to be badly injured. winning you may find the following image is disturbing. ah police lucian happened to a she a mosque in the city of kandahar during friday. prayers. a large crowd had gathered there. the telephone government say's its house launched an investigation well, today's blast comes just the week after on the explosion tour through another shia mosque in the north of the country. 50 people were killed, isis. k claim responsibility for the attack, or t contributor richard med hurst. looks back at what happened then on asks why is
1:15 pm
law mc state is intensifying its activities in the country. last week, a tragic terrorist attack in afghanistan. the explosion occurred during friday. prayers at a mosque in conduce, in northern part of the country. at least a 100 people were killed or wounded. most of the victims has ara. she has an ethnic minority. isaac k quickly stepped up to claim responsibility for the attack. but with one intriguing detail. turns out the suicide bomber was a. you grew muslim from china's changing province. this is very interesting because you girls are indeed a minority muslim population in china. and usually the only thing you hear about them is that the chinese government is committing genocide against them. believe something the media haven't told you. there are indeed many ogres in afghanistan, militants who are members of various jihadist groups like al qaeda or isis there, actually, so many of them, the united nations, put out a report in june about foreign fighters in afghanistan. the report estimates that
1:16 pm
there are between 8010000 foreign terrorist fighters, comprised mainly of individuals from central asia, the north caucasus region of the russian federation, pakistan and the shin, january autonomy region of china, among others. although the majority are affiliated foremost would the taliban many also support al qaeda? others are allied with iso or have isolate sympathies. another one of these groups is e t i m, which stands for the east torcous don islamic movement. this huger extremist group used to be on the united states list of terrorist organizations. but for some reason, in 2020, the united states, remove them from the list us cozying up to terrorist groups, using them as proxies for regime change in countries. they don't like where we seen that before. latin america of gannons dancer. yes. speaking of syria,
1:17 pm
there are 5000 uga terrorists over there, fighting alongside other jonas, but just going back to afghanistan for the last 20 years, the u. s. has had an enormous military footprint on china's doorstep. now the most of its truth of withdrawn and the united states is shifting its focus from them, at least to china. us wants to keep china's border with janice, n as unsafe as possible, and a constant worry by tacitly endorsing. but the very least turning a blind to i, the terrorist groups, and the u. s. in the u. k. m is supporting separatist movements in china going back decades. this is all part of america strategy to mess with china. create chaos. divide and conquer with united states is making a huge mistake once again. just like they back the magazine in the 1980s to fight soviet. now there implicitly backing you the terrorists in order to fight the chinese. and, you know, there comes a point where you really have to understand that backing jihad is, is not a good idea. there is nothing beneficial about someone's blowing themselves up and
1:18 pm
committing a terrorist attack. i mean, this is incredible. how many times is it gonna take for the united states to realize that backing which i, dean and of gannon san, or anywhere for that matter is a really bad idea. they did it in the 1980s. they back been loudon. it came back to bite them. it always does, and this is no exception. earlier we asked political analyst chris boundary, an anti war activist, brian baker, what the to a decade long american anti terror operation actually achieve for afghanistan. american red occupation has increased the number of charges groups increase the energy high despite us on the growing the canister. as a reaction soon, what the americans did to could industry killing us to billions by drawing the bombing at science. therefore, i don't think we should hold off the american presence as be forced to stability in afghanistan. it actually de, stabilize the country across the board. and it rebuilt support the tower. but the
1:19 pm
main point on makers is that the americans are not part of a solution in afghanistan. they were part of the problem. let's remember the big picture, the context. when the united states invaded afghanistan on october 7th, 2001, there was no isis. the whole war on terror by the united states, which is included the death of 250000 afghans during the past 20 years. and that has created that has created that has been the trigger or the catalyst for the further expansion of ice is, or ice is like formations. so from a on its face, the war on terror has been a complete and utter failure because rather than containing or stopping this kind of extremism or terrorism, it has accelerated and expanded it as a phenomena. well, the former us national security advisor, john bolton, will be sharing his thoughts on the u. s. policy along with other foreign policy
1:20 pm
issues. when he sits down with ortiz going underground show, you'll be able to watch the full interview tomorrow saturday. but here's a quick test you say in your book, the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment? as a former national security adviser of fee by the administration foreign policy, especially on afghanistan. well, i think this is one of those 2 instances where biden and trump agree on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many people thought were foreseeable, what biden did was take trump's deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as is on policy, disregard of the advice of senior advisors and the pentagon. the state department, the white house,
1:21 pm
and i think the consequences have been playing to say return to afghanistan to control by the taliban and everything that's flowing from that, including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning and again, using afghanistan is a base to plan terrorist operations around the world, so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage, something by and believe then since at least 2009 say say, ironically, trump wave done it to, i think it's a mistake for the u. s. make it's a mistake for level stability. certainly, it's a mistake for the people of afghanistan watching party still ahead, a ceiling into a storm moscow's not barking down after stopping a u. s. warship from apparently attempting to violate russian territorial waters. we've got that on more coming up
1:22 pm
with oh, is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safe? tice, elation community. are you going the right way? or are you being led somewhere? which direction? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. while the jig is up, president of

a latin american country armed with volcano energy is calling out wall street and the whole finance year class. oh hello again, rushes defense ministry has summoned the u. s. military attache after it blocked on a ledge. the attempt by an american war ship to violate russian territorial waters in the sea of japan. the report of incursion by the u. s. vessel came as russia and china were conducting joint naval exercises. a russian military ship warned the u. s. destroyer about the quote in up miss ability of such actions. the message was ot's 1st met with resistance with the u. s. signaling it was in the middle of a helicopter launch from his deck and unable to change course before,

eventually abiding by the command. the russian defense ministry. call the incident . a severe violation of international rules. transport workers in italy are threatening strike action over a new coven. green pass system starting today. friday, all workers have to show proof of vaccination or a negative cobit test, or go without pay. ah, the government's decision comes despite a relatively low nationwide infection, rid of $3000.00 per day on right, 40 daily debts among those unhappy about the grandpa system or workers at wall of europe's major. which intrigues you 1000 protesters gathered, they're threatening to disrupt the ports. operation, the vaccination rates among its workers is 40 percent on those still not inoculated
1:25 pm
are said to be strongly against any mandate policy. please stop. we are here to protest against the green festival workers would think that the green pass is an unlawful tool, an improper one. that should not be forced upon the workers because it is discriminatory. so we are demonstrating against the government degree talk to dell constitution as being trampled on what is happening today as like back in 1938, i say no to this discrimination to robert and last evening, close to vite. we're not looking for confrontation, both openness and opportunity for reasoning. here we are talking about economic recovery, but whose economic recovery, i don't know, her family's lesson more in crisis are those who previously could not make it until the end of the month. now find themselves an average of 200 or 300 euros less from home. it's python testimony. earlier thousands of protesters gathered in the italian capital to voice their anger at the obligatory pass is a similar rally in rome last week. and so a violent clashes with police,
1:26 pm
this window went off peacefully. despite the public outcry, the italian government is refusing to relent. it's already met the national 80 percent target for a vaccinations, meaning not heard immunity. the 1st threshold for that has been achieved. but the state wants to go further. rti, charlotte gibbon ski has more on the public resistance to cupboard measures right across europe. when italy's government last month sworn that it would bring in the new green card, no pay decree. it expected the announcement to trigger an enormous acceleration of vaccinations. however, that has not materialized while job rates didn't initially increase the has since been a steep decline. italians are not the only ones who have been taking to the streets to express their anger. hearing france weekly protests against health passes and
1:27 pm
mandatory vaccination of health workers are continuing. there's a concern that those protests could be about to get a boost to after francis government announced that it wants to extend the use of health policies up until possibly the summer of 2022 already voices of discontent. arising faculty to pakistan and they're not going to have a carte blanche until the 31st of july 2020 to parliament must decide it's an attack on freedom's individual and collective freedoms in a parliamentary democracy, it can only be done through parliament. those plans by the french government also seem to be in contrast to advice that was recently given by the country's own scientific council. it suggested that it to covey situation remains under control. health passes could be dumped fast sooner in this scenario. the cobra past system could be canceled between november the 15th and the end of the year. if there are low case levels nationally. it's
1:28 pm
a waiting phase in order to prepare to cancel the pass system, which will allow us to limit the risk and scale of a possible new wave in december, january. adding fuel to the fire form friday in france, tests to show that your coven negative will no longer be free for those who are and vaccinated. another carrot and stick measure, perhaps. but the issue isn't specifically about the coven jab the cosy pandemic is seeing government across europe flip flopping on policy, ignoring advice, it's come from their own scientific advisors. and all of these says perhaps deepened divisions. enact many in europe, wondering if they governments are really working in their best interests. charlotte, even sky, i'll see paris. we spoke to a conservative commentator in italy who believes the monetary health paths will
1:29 pm
cripple the already fragile economy. there we are, the only country, not only europe, but the only country all over the world where you must have the so called green pass to, to go to work. and he's quite the irrational without the green fast. you can enter in a restaurant without the green pass. you can enter in a hotel without a green pass. you can think i'd be trained, for example, if you want to move from rama to me or from aroma, not please. with an i is be train. you can see, keep the, if you don't have the green path, what is happening in our country and i think is very dangerous. also from a social point of view is that we are creating some teachers that are the ac, didn't and other than without the vaccines, the 1000 b c disease. and he's not correcting the democracy. milanni the 2nd sci fi immediately. and the 25 percent of the work inside the public transportation in land. they don't have the vaccine. they don't have the green pass. so probably they're going to paralyze the public transportation in milano. but we can also talk
1:30 pm
about the logistics system, not only the part of to ask that, but also in the south of there are many big parking and other logistic important industry where the 2015 percent of the workers that they don't have seen. so we have to decide what to do, we can stop our, our economy, and we don't understand why, how government piece pushing. reason music isn't is very strong. love is where we leave and use roundup. i'll be here again at the top of the hour with all the latest updates and what's a very busy friday? more programs right ahead. no though, stay close. aah! join me every thursday on the alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world. the politics sport business, i'm show business. i'll see you then in
