ah ah, the investigation found no violation of law including the law of war. u. s. investigation concluded an august drones try can campbell, the kill 10 afghan civilians was legal, tenure relaunch of proven to whether a british soldier mode at a young woman almost a decade ago. here on the program, we speak to her family who thinks the u. k. has been less than open about this case . we only recently learned that the british army were involved because there has been lot of cover ups. my wish is that the culprit faces the lot. i feel so sad that it's those are in position to help us that took so long of businesses across the u. s. embrace for a likely vaccine mandate being pushed by the biden administration. and the program we speak to an airline pilot who face it could lead to
1:01 am
a huge job losses. the government isn't saying what the accommodation will be for you if you choose to continue not to get back. a lot of people fear, and i think rightly so. they could end up on the street. ah, it is thursday morning at moments off the am here at moscow picking up the morning program. now, what are you international? i'm rural re sushi. the u. s. military has concluded that a botched drone strike afghanistan back in august was not unlawful and showed no sign of negligence. despite the strike killing 10 civilians including stepping children and no terrorists of the u. s. air force inspector general announced the pro findings the investigation that found no violation of law,
1:02 am
including the law of war. did find execution errors confirmed by confir may or a combined with confirmation bias and communication break, the breakdowns that regrettably lead to civilian casualties. what essentially the pentagon is saying that their own investigation has found them not guilty. what they have said is that as we heard execution error as well as communication breakdowns and other big things of what a, what are to blame and all of this. so they can get away with without pinning the blame on anyone. in particular, the full report, ease, ease, redacted and classified for security reasons. they say, nevertheless, the pentagon says that this would investigation was independence. and that they question 29. people who are related to this matter 2922 of them directly related in the strewn stripe. and which at the time the pentagon called a righteous strike and we withdrew, which we would later learn. and the weeks following was booth
1:03 am
a tragedy and exhausted flu . busy ah, the pentagon also concluded is that all evolved, all the people who questioned and all who are responsible for that strewn trial, that they acted in good faith, that they legitimately believed that they were preventing an imminent terror attack against the the airport and u. s. troops stationed at campbell international airport. more than that, they say they claim that they track this man for this aid work, who worked for us aid company at that. they tracked him for many hours before the show. and that at that point,
1:04 am
they legitimately believed he was trafficking explosives. that is, that is the important thing that they say both triggered the drum track and allowed this. this mess to happen is this huge, huge casualty 7 kids as well as 3 adults. and what they're arguing is at the time and we were, we were there towards the end of august our team we. so 1st had there was no plat, it was absolute chaos. every action was, was improvised. every day was a new day without any sort of plan as to how things would be resolved. evacuation was winding down after the terror attack of the 26th, in which more than a dozen us servicemen would kill a $170.00 afghans. there was also fear there was also tara, both a, both amongst the, the civilian population, as well as among u. s. troops and foreign troops stationed at the airport. everyone believed at the time and we were expecting at the time more tara attacks at the airport. babs, shootings, perhaps another, another bombing. and obviously that may have contributed to this decision to go
1:05 am
ahead with this strong truck. there are all sorts of unanswered questions with regards to this report, such as how they didn't see this multitude of children playing around the car. they obviously targeted the vehicle. the bombers, very precise the missile. it struck the vehicle and they were all these kids around that they. so there is the opinion that the drone operators must have seen the kids and must have decided to go along with this truth. they must have deemed the thread too, too severe. but we had previously spoken to drew operate as former, drew operators in the u. s. military, and they had described a gung ho attitude in the service. the sergeant comes down and turns around. mel goes in the military prater as he says, your job is to kill people and break things. so you got all these young enlisted deeds and girls, girls and guys who are out of high school. grab no experience in anything who are now. basically,
1:06 am
video game snipers for months of training. and may they put in the position to make his decision mental degradation. the proper term, every shot that we took, like they're cheering their congratulating each other. they're high, 5 each other people getting promoted because of this stuff. it's like a withering away of who you are. i was told one day going in that president obama himself would hollis up and give the order himself to me. and i got this euphoric feeling we had previously heard from the pentagon, that new disciplinary action was, was being planned that this report doesn't include any recommendation for disciplinary action against any individual. all those responsible for this, for this disastrous as sure i could, that may be bitter news for relatives in the family of those killed to swallow, were because obviously they had previously said that they would a, they would renounce any claim to compensation so long as those responsible were
1:07 am
punished as my carriage only course, 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, they must be brought to justice. in this case, it appears that the pentagon has renaming the crime on the system and though on vague mistakes that nobody can really be held accountable for previously, the u. s. government had said that they would offer compensation to the, to the family and relatives of those that were, that were killed. but the report also has recommendations. 3 various recommendations to make sure that incidents like this don't happen again to minimize civilian casualties in the future. but for now it's, it's business as usual, nothing's changed in the way that these room strikes are handled or or carried out . and perhaps all these recommendations will stay in the future. just that
1:08 am
recommendations we heard from a u. s. marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter. he believes at the end of the day, there was no real justification for the capitol trying to strike. there is nothing but negligence here from the beginning when they identified or miss identified the target to the in when the decision was made to pull the trigger. i can't see a single legitimate reason to go forward. and yet everybody did go forward. and if they're not being honest about it and saying that mistakes are made, this is going to happen again. this isn't the 1st time we fired a missile as killed civilians. it isn't the 2nd time, 3rd time board time. it's the hundreds time. and the, the reality is the united states is known for some time now as a procedures it has in place. it carry out counterterrorism strikes in a real world, you know, real time an event or are not sufficient to the task that we kill civilians. and yet we went forward in ways of because there was political pressure being placed on
1:09 am
the military to be seen as doing something, kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the alleged murder of a woman by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stopped and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012 and her family believe the details of the case were covered up and a kenyan police chief is now urging the u. k. to cooperate. i have directed the directorate of criminal investigations to reopen the case and ensure the case is concluded before a court of law. i'm also urging the u. k. government to collaborate with us to conclude the case and administer justice. the family of agnes when tara, when jacko, a canyon woman allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death . when jack, who was a 21 year old sex walker, any money to feed her newborn baby when she was reported missing in march of 2012,
1:10 am
2 months later her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed till now, no soldier has been question though, has been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier acts confessed to killing her lou. we only recently learned that the british army were involved because there has been lot of cover ups in the year. but we are glad that things are now been brought to light. my wish is that the culprit faces the law because i had to bear burden that was not mine. had my own children to take care of. there was not employed here because it has been a real struggle accordable. i feel so sad that this those her in position to help us that took so long recently when the media started air in the story, it opened old wounds. it's like agnes has just died. it has it been effected, her daughter. but we had to let her know what is going on with your vehicle, according to witness accounts. she had last been seen in the company of british soldiers, though the british army has never taken action. not even when
1:11 am
a canyon judge concluded back in 2019, that one or 2 british soldiers were responsible. according to the u. k. defense ministry, it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always is be forthcoming. will activists in kenya, a calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable while the labor party here in the united kingdom say the 9 year old deal without an investigation even being considered has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the soldiers involved a no inquiring to why the minister, the funds failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of when jackie continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that
1:12 am
a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. plus, members of the regiment say the name of the killer was an open secret. with 5 different soldiers identifying the very same person, the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them their answers. they so desperately need. the person who guilt agnes should face the law because the child was orphaned, has suffered a lot. bearing in mind that she was just 5 months old at the time, even feed in at the time was difficult. or i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes do we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us to fend for her young child. it's my hope that this child will get justice. this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into an jacko's death officially closed at stores on investigations into more than
1:13 am
a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be served for anger when jerry, when jack, who and her family chateau edwards dashti, r t, london hi to the united states now where the biden administration is seeking emergency vaccine mandates for the private sector. the rules would apply to all businesses with more than $100.00 workers. we spoke to a airline pilot, a jason kuhn issue, thinks the rules will put a major burden on the asian industry. the effective date is december 8th, that federal contractors need to be fully vaccinated. the crews right now are extremely stressed. you add to that the for forced vaccines that are coming our way in the transportation industry and the potential here having to violate one's own conscience. in order to get the vaccine or potentially lose your livelihood and
1:14 am
lose your career is, is very, very stressful. fact air traffic control in the united states. they are already working by mandate 6 days in a row because of shortages. and now you have estimated 15 percent of air traffic control in the united states are gonna walk off the job at the end of the month because they're not going to take this vaccine. the companies and the government isn't saying what the accommodation will be for you if you choose to continue not to get vaccinated. and so a lot of people fear, and i think rightly so that they could end up on the street. last week alone, american airlines, the country's biggest carrier, counselled more than 2000 flights in the past 4 days, 10 percent, it was flights of just being scrapped at the airline, blame the setbacks on stop shortages, and whether meanwhile,
1:15 am
over 40 republican senators have said they'll try to nullify president biden's vaccine mandate on wednesday, the described to describe proposal measure that is a they called it the single biggest, disruptive for the business community. and tracing clinician again says the asian industry was already suffering severe shortages of qualified stock. the airline ceos and companies themselves have paired up with harvard university, showing that there is a point 003 percent chance of getting any kind of coven transmission on an airplane . you know, we flown through this pandemic for the last 18 months. air crews all over the world have done a fantastic job. navigating this, this pandemic, you know, we've flown p p. we found vaccines. we've been there with the 1st responders in showing up for work. despite the risks you see in the united states that we're
1:16 am
already under a very ste, i would call a severe shortage of qualified individuals. to be mechanics. we find a tennis to be pilots, specifically, race and religion could play a pivotal role in the french presidential election next year. if you buy a new poll, that is, it found that 2 thirds of people believe white christians are under threat of muslim immigration. charlotte, who was, he picks up the story with an election around the corner, hearing france questions about the country's identity, and whether it's losing it all being raised. the campaign is shifted to the fringes of the right even before it's even really begun and fears that frogs is traditional values are being replaced or rife. one poll showed 27 percent of responding to certain that kristin populations were being threatened by extinction
1:17 am
. 34 percent thought that it was probable. the fear is that muslim immigration is de, posing traditional white communities. while these ideas are certainly being peddled by read, you write politicians, they're not the only ones with the medical center, right? joining in you have people of foreign origin who are driving out little by little what in demography we call the natives. eric seymour, a french pundits and the presidential hopeful, has been far stronger than that. in his latest book, he says, the suburbs of paris are being colonized by muslims, and that the whole of france will soon be overrun. he has also added to warnings from some of frances retired military talk for us that a civil war is brewing. this fear that frances snoozing, her identity, her traditional values,
1:18 am
is one that there is general public concern about it. you know, in my opinion, there are populations from africa who come up because they really wants to be in france and to integrate because because they don't have a choice of the religious aspect, doesn't worry me much. it's more the values like freedom and then security oil, but i'm afraid that all values by force will be diluted in time. values are what make the foundations of a society. we must not forget the immigration is the number one problem in francis, on. we deal with it or with kids. however, while subjects like this me peak interest for many the issue dominates the upcoming election. we the politicians busily trying to show that they are the one who will uphold friendship values. and that voters may be looking for someone who is a little bit different to deal. i think these types of subjects are being used by politicians to get votes, which are making extremist parties happy,
1:19 am
the day on the right or the language. so yes, it makes it scary. after all, we must not forget that there are just 6 months to go before the election event. i'll do that. here's a new debate. it's come because very close to the election because there has been an enormous amount of immigration. everything that's happened in the middle east longley can, france was always about him and country. it was constructed by foreigners in a fashion after conversation history for la metro's read them all in the end. he has a very intelligent personal, very cultured seizures that's for sure is want to, he's not part of any political party issue. there is a craze for him. almost all in 2017. that was a manual microphone. this time around the vote is know a little bit more about what he can or he can't offer. so that new and shiny label has wall off the pole show that someone like zoom more, could laugh up votes, maybe even enough to be one of the 2 candidates who get into this 2nd round of
1:20 am
voting. his tough talking, his not showing away from subjects that many have found unpalatable in the past, is at least for now resonating with the public. and if he ends up going head to head against macklin, the more a man who's been described as the intellectual, donald trump, is ready to make some pretty unpredictable waves. charlotte, even ski r t a. u. s. democrats have been dealt a blow by an election to result in virginia. the republican glenn young can one the gun on a race in a mostly blue state. and there certainly sent alarm bells ringing through the liberal media. that is a 5 alarm fire. somebody in the high up and call us can i was there with mccall, but it just went to me about an hour ago. it's
1:21 am
a blood bath. this is your live vote right now. where are there counties where mcauliffe is under performing northern by more than oh, my god, democrats are quite shaken up by the earthquake results of the race for governor in the state of virginia. glen young. can the republican candidate one? now this is a state where and far beyond solid points back in 2020. but now that state seems to be shifting into the republican camp. blend young can was victorious. the democrat was defeated, quite a shakeup in the state of virginia. now, some democrats think that this could be related to the falling poll numbers of joe biden. joe biden is not doing well. a number of americans disapprove of him. his approval rating is around 42 percent. and many look at the situation in virginia as one opportunity where voters stepped up and tried to register their discontent with how biden has led the country. clearly,
1:22 am
the president's drop in favor ability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. now $7.10 americans say that they don't like the direction in which biden is leading the united states and a poll conducted among democrats and independents who are democrat leaning. this poll came out and said that 40 percent of them think that their own party might do better to not nominate joe biden for reelection in 2024. but instead to pick another candidate. now this defeat for terry mcauliffe, a mainstream democrat located in the state of virginia, a long time figure in virginia. politics has been quite a blow. you'll recall that the lead up to the vote that happen tuesday. both the president and vice president traveled to virginia and emphasized how important this election was. hi, virginia will, in large part determine what happens is 2020 to 2024 and on. so it seems like this was an opportunity for voters to register their
1:23 am
discontent. there's a lot of rising frustration with the biden administration over the unpopular cold and vaccine mandates over at stag nation and inflation in the economy. and over the issue of the afghan pull out, which was very chaotic and in the lead up to the vote. national democratic party figures like president joe biden and vice president common air, went to virginia to emphasize the importance of this election. they presented voters in virginia with their agenda, and it appears a lot of them did not like what they heard. and so in just a few hours time and international group of volunteers are going to be locked inside an experimental cap. sewell right here at moscow to simulate an 8 month space flight ought to meet you, poke, went to check it out. what does it take to go to the mound, and what effect would have on a team of international researchers? well, project serious a joint effort by russian he was,
1:24 am
has been set up to determine exactly that by simulating a mand expedition to the surface of the moon and back we are here in moscow. and this is the chamber where 6 astronauts will spend 240 days in complete isolation from the world in a structure made to assimilate in actual interplanetary spaceship. so let's see what it looks like inside. mm. with the whole purpose of the project conducted by nasa's human research program and rushes institute for biomedical problems is to analyze the psychological and physiological effects that a crew might experience on an expedition to the moon. the experience will last
1:25 am
$240.00 days and will be as close to reality as possible. limited resources, a fixed oxygen supply, as well as a time delay in communications, which can only be conducted through audio messages and emails. the ship has living quarters with individual rooms for each of the sex volunteers, a research area, a virtual reality room designed to simulate the lunar surface and even an on board gym because yes, 0 g might be fun for the 1st little while. but muscles start to deteriorate after prolonged weightlessness. so exercise is crucial throughout the expedition. it makes the representatives of different countries united for the training and tried to foster team spirit and relationships among themselves. that was certainly interesting. there were some minor problems including linguistic ones, but now everything is back to normally physical activity. when you give your maximum and are motivated to continue and produce such interesting results. it
1:26 am
certainly pleases utilize, having to prepare for everything was not very realistic, but with motivation and interest, it will be possible to hold out for 8 months for this experiment on it would submission, as you can see here, this is the biggest it we have to submit it for us to walk in on the moon, on the moss, the shower in to my side. this up to you with a one week before, don't go with these experiments actually with us in the future. human space flight tensions in order to fit our way to them. one will be on to the mosque or a blast. however, the crew will not only be living on the space ship, they will also be descending to the surface of the moon, which is the purpose of this room, which has been equipped with v r gear and a surface that imitates the lunar surface. immersed in a virtual environment,
1:27 am
the participants will be practicing how to move around in space suits, repair rovers, and collect samples. among other tasks, the volunteers will also be tasked with steering the space ship, docking with stations and supply ships, as well as descending and ascending from the lunar surface, all with the help of the v. r gear. while they're definitely seems to be a lot to do on this spaceship, it's still, frankly not that big. and the idea of being stuck with 5 strangers for 240 days in a claustrophobia inducing environment with limited supplies and limited communication with the outside world might sound like a nightmare scenario. for some, the people who have volunteered have can actually wait to get started. and some even fear that $240.00 days might not be enough. i'm excited to see really the limits of even my personal limits and also team dynamic limits. what are the problems that we're going to use to entertain counter and social interactions and,
1:28 am
you know, how are we going to overcome different problems that they might put towards us and how we can manage long duration human spaceflight as we have missions that are going to go to the noun and hopefully keep on onwards to mars. and so it's really important to understand, you know, how humans will interact in these long duration and close isolated environments. it's important to see how international, different different international groups and backgrounds and cultures interact on my woman at the minute. the most important thing for me use to understand how effective this distance training will be, how it will help astronauts gain the knowledge they need to make space flights in the future when you do not have the opportunity to get help from an instructor and you can only rely on yourself once the experiment begins, this door will be sealed, shut with fixed crew members behind it. and the next time it will open up will be in exactly 240 days. and by then, the crew hopefully will have successfully carried out their mission and merged
1:29 am
healthy and with a well deserved sense of accomplishment. but more importantly, provided scientists with all the data necessary to bring about a future where mand expeditions through lunar space station, and moon walks will be a thing of the ordinary. if somebody tells me, dmitri doesn't fancy being locked up in the capsule for 240 days. well, this is alta international thursday morning here, 8 about 829. now here on the russian capital back of the top of the hour with more of your thursday, walton like ah, the narrative this year is climate change. climate change is being swapped out for we need gross. and it's being used to justify money printing. and just like printing money doesn't create gross printing money doesn't solve climate change.
1:30 am
and either way, edge of state, aspire to use luxury cars produce in their home countries. it's an unspoken rule for all official events. and everyone's abided by for a very long time. the head of states car isn't only a symbol of the nation's prosperity. it's a matter of national prestige. ah, joe biden uses the so called cadillac one limousine, nicknamed the beast. it is an arm and bony and weighs 10 tons bars. johnson gets driven about in a jakya queen elizabeth rise in a bentley angela merkel with car choices and audi while a french anita emmanuel macro and uses a converted citron. d.
