11:01 am
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, lie from our international new center in moscow. this is our t, i'm you know, neil hello and welcome to the program. we begin with breaking news this our, the new york times reporting that a russian born analyst who was a key source for the infamous steel dossier which contains salacious allegations or by donald trump. and his links to russia has been arrested in the us. let's say make sense of all the developments now with daniel hawkins are corresponded. done. what do we know from the reports phyllis in while the rest of you go down to guy
11:02 am
will certainly be of interest to all those following the so called from russia. collusion, saginaw, going into a 50 year, plague before president throughout his time in the white house investigations, of course, eventually found no links, no substantial evidence to back up those allegations. nevertheless, though, allegation speculation did remain rife, fueled in part by that so called crystal steel dossier document are released in late 2016 by former agent christ of a steel which was filled with all sorts of infinity way. sions and allegations of conspiracy between kremlin and donald trump to win that election, that presidential campaign document was heavily criticized. then the doubt was even cost must be evidence within documents itself by its own author. i'm prepared to accept that not everything in the dosier is 100 percent accurate. i've yet to be convinced that that is one of them. now,
11:03 am
according to the new york times today, the saga tonnes, another page eagle dynasty go. a russian born analyst in the us hasn't actually been taken into custody by federal agents. now we do not know at this stage what exactly he has been charged with. the department of justice isn't commenting on the case so far. this is all part of the so cool. john barron pro by trump ordered investigation into the original russia investigation by the special counsel to find out if any wrong doing any milo. so ill intent was present in those original probes into the trump, russia collusion. now, as we say, we don't know yet warm it's dense ago has been taken into custody. but this is important because he himself, of course, was a key contributor, a key research for the christopher steel d'orsay, despite he himself betraying himself as a neutral analyst, a neutral observer. he has been previously interviewed by asians as somebody who
11:04 am
contributed at to that steel dossier. so it will certainly be interesting to say why he has been taken into custody and what he will be charged with. if of course, he will be charged at all. certainly certainly will be following and will give you updates as they come in. yet thanks for taking us through our teeth. daniel hawkins, the u. s. military has concluded and botched drone. the strike in afghanistan in august was not on lawful and showed no sign of negligence. thus, despite the strike killing 10 civilians including 7 children, another single terrorist, us or force inspector general a launch the prob findings. the investigation did found no violation of law, 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
11:05 am
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 are, 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 is redacted and classified for security reasons. they say. nevertheless, the pentagon says that this investigation was independent. and that they questioned 20 non 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 in the weeks following was booth and tragedy and lost flu. busy busy busy ah. busy
11:06 am
the pentagon also concluded that all evolved, all the people who questioned and all who are responsible for the stone 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 a u. s. aid company at that they tracked him for many hours before the and that at that point they legitimately believed he was trafficking exclusives. that is, that is the important thing that they say both triggered the drum track and allowed this. this mess to happen is the sky, huge casualty 7 kids as well as 3 adults. and what they're arguing is at the time
11:07 am
and we were, we were there towards the end of august our team we. so 1st had, there was no plan, 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 under $26.00 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 of the airport babs shootings, perhaps another. another bombing. and obviously that may have contributed to this decision to go ahead with a strong track. 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,
11:08 am
very precise the missile. it struck the vehicle and they were all these kids around that they. so there is the opinion that the june operators must have seen the kids and must have decided to go along with this through like they must have deemed the thread to, to severe. but we had previously spoken to drew operators 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 progress. 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 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 fiving each other. people getting promoted because of this stuff. it's like
11:09 am
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 no disciplinary action was, was being claimed, and this report doesn't include any recommendation for disciplinary action against any individual. 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. but because obviously they had previously said that they would a, they would renounce any claim to compensation so long as those responsible were punished. asthma carriage only horse i will keep demanding that each person who has committed a crime here must be convicted and punished with the due process of law. in some fair, if a person commits a crime and then a different person is brought to court to answer, the criminal must be punished,
11:10 am
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 us 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 recommendations. and just staying with this story, we spoke to form a u. s. marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter. he believes there was no justification for the drone strike in the heavily populated city. there is nothing but negligence here from the beginning
11:11 am
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 that's killed civilians. it isn't the 2nd time, 3rd time for time in the hundreds time. and the, the reality is the united states as known for some time now that the procedures it has in place. it carry out counter terrorism 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 anyways of because there was political pressure being placed on the military to be seen as doing something. let's move to the u. s. now where the biden administration is seeking emergency vaccine mun dates for the private sector
11:12 am
. the rules would apply to all businesses with more than $100.00 workers and big fines are set to be tested. we talked to airline pilot jason cruz net, she says vaccine regulations. i've already put a major burden on the vacation 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 forced vaccines that are coming our way in the transportation industry and the potential here of having to violate one's own conscience. in order to get the vaccine, will potentially lose your livelihood and lose your career is, is very, very stressful. in 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
11:13 am
control in the united states are gonna walk off the job at the end of that 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. the u. s. h and sector is already under pressure last weekend alone, american airlines, the country's biggest carrier council, more than 2000 flights. and in the space of 4 days, 10 percent of its flights were scrubbed, the airline blame the setbacks and stuff. shortage is an unfair weather. when well over 40 republican senators have said they're going to try and nullify president biden's vaccine mandate. they have described, they proposed measure of the single biggest disruptor for the business community,
11:14 am
the coven vaccination rate, in the u. s. i stole that are on 58 percent of the population and well, behind really the world health organization is target of 70 percent. but jason cruz niche again thinks his sector at least is already as safe as it can be. 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've 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 already under a very st, i would call a severe shortage of qualified individuals to be mechanics, to be find
11:15 am
a tennis to be pilots. specifically, kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the horrific murder of a woman, allegedly by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stamped and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012. her family believe the details of the case were all, are still lead you the i did johnny, we recently learned that is the british army involved because there were a lot of cover alps that but we are glad that now think of being brought to light. my wishes the culprit to face the law because i had to bear burden that wasn't mine because i had my only children to take care of. though i was not employed, it has been a real struggle with the family of agnes when terror, 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 waka, any money to feed her newborn baby when she was reported missing in march of 2012,
11:16 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, it's been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier ex confessed to killing her would i feel so sad as those in positions to help us that took so long. recently, when the me des started air in the story top and old, once it's like agnes has just died. it has the been affected, her daughter, but we had to let her know what is going on. i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case. well, when i think of agnes, i remember how happy she was, that she loved to sing it. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing what the person who killed agnes should face the law or because the charge was orphaned, has suffered a lot of the bearing in mind. she was just 5 months old to the very even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k. defense ministry, it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands
11:17 am
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 be forthcoming when activists in kenya, 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 deal without an investigation even being considered, has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the soldiers involved or no inquiring toward 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 jacka continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need. hold on to her. i feel
11:18 am
a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us defense for her young child. it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally 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 one jack whose death officially closed its doors on investigations and to more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be solved for angus. when jerry, when jack, who and her family, chateau edwards dashti, r t, london a bitter dispute has broken i between a run on the u. s. so we're the seizure of an oil tanker in the see of among last week. washington claims to run captured the vessel, but our rum said it was repelling
11:19 am
a u. s. attempt to seize the boat and has no release video claiming to prove just that this will live now to a middle east correspond paula slip for more. hi paula. tensions, of course, between the 2 nations already. hi, dick is through what's in the video on what's been said. ah, well look at witness now is a new round of tensions escalating between iran and the united states. this particular incident happened at the end of last month, but now we have video that has been nice bye to ran it. look at this video. you can clearly see iranian forces, despite the walking number by the us vessel, being able to successfully block the path of american warship as those tanks fell away. now, there are multiple shots in the video that showed iranian revolutionary gods. taking aim and training. they went and we,
11:20 am
at the us vessels. now the rating government has said that this was a successful operation. despite the fact that the americans were able to transfer oil from this contest to another vessel. now the whereabouts of that other se, so currently unknown. earlier we did hear from the pentagon refuting these claims i've seen the iranian claims, they are absolutely totally false and untrue. there was no such effort by us naval assets to seize anything. so what this refers to is back on the 24th of october, and i would add that iran's actions, the ones that are true of them illegally boarding and seizing a merchant vessel, constitute a blatant violation of international law. now this is not the 1st time that we see the united states intercepting vessels that are carrying iranian oil. in fact, back with the nuclear deal that was signed in 2015,
11:21 am
iran's exports were banned by the united states term. subsequently with from, from that and that really did want to see a commitment from the rainy inside to limit it. nuclear ambitions. any country today that purchases iranian oil can have and will have sanctions imposed. now the timing of all of this is quite significant for the iranian population. it comes as government organizations, government organized, come immigration, took place into ran commemorating the $979.00 seizure of the american embassy in turin. well, a thanks very much for taking us through all that our teeth, paul, a severe let's stay with the story. uncross live. i'm happy to say to professor sired mohammed burundi political almost at the university of t. ron,
11:22 am
you're very welcome back. the pentagon was denied all allegation, including the only seizure was by iran. how do you see events? i think anyone who watches the footage that the iranians have provided to the international community and the media would know quite well that the claim made by the americans is not true. and i think one of the smart things that the iranians did was that and what they seem to be doing is that they take cameras with them in all their operations. so they had drone footage helicopter footage full footage from the ships and they put bits and pieces together and it was clear what the american military was trying to do and how the iranian ships were blocking them. and how alternately, the americans have had to withdraw. so they can pretend but nothing happened all
11:23 am
they want, but no one is going to believe that those american ships were just there by accident. the incident reportedly took place last week. why is the video only surfacing now? i think the iranians were putting their bits and pieces of footage together to make sure that they could put a convincing our argument forward for the international community. because we have to remember the americans are the ones who control the media. the western media have traditionally been dominant for decades and the european media, the corporate media, all of them will support the american narrative. so the romance had to provide the sort of evidence that would not be possible for the americans and their allies. to refute, even though they have done so, but no one really believes it because you can see clearly in their footage what is
11:24 am
happening. so, and the very fact that the it happened a few days ago and americans have said nothing about it. i mean, the americans make excuses to condemn miran for everything if they ever have the slightest let's say evidence or the slightest claim to make against iran. bill use it because they're there hostility towards iran and their ambitions to, to isolate iran and a demonized iran, and iranians is always there. so why the silence from washington? it's obvious because the united states failed. as you say, relations between the 2 states aren't exactly great. oh, is this instant going to impact them? seeing a run is blaming the u. s. will it retaliate will to run take action iran has many grievances against the united states. it's decades the, the,
11:25 am
the americans over through the national government in iran. they installed a shaw who, and they trained his secret police that tortured and killed many iranians. then they supported the shar, when he gun down people during the revolution house and killing thousands on the streets of thereon. then they supported saddam hussein, gave him chemical weapons along with the european allies. they can, they help gas iranians, even today, the people who survive from that more a dying because of cove. it because their lungs are, are not normal. so the grievances at more iranians have more enormous. but i think that this particular retaliation, this particular event is very significant, and it shows that the iranians are much more powerful today. they're in a very, they're in a commanding position to defend their sovereignty. and their interests. and the
11:26 am
very fact that the united states had to back down is reflective of something much bigger. i think it's, it has to do with u. s. internal divisions. the declining middle class in the united states, the rise of powers like china, like russia, like iran, which are forcing the americans to, to divide their resources into entered so called different fronts and different arenas. and so this general decline of the united states i think, is reflected in this very simple, this very confrontation that was filmed and, and presented by the iranian. so if the united states chooses to change his behavior towards iran and behave like a reasonable country towards iran, abide by its commitment, it relations will improve. but if the united states wants to intimidate iran and try to get more concessions from iran beyond that deal, that was already struct. in 2015, they're not going to get any car,
11:27 am
and they will have more problems in future with iraq or many thanks for sharing your views all the instant with us. professor sighed bahama mirandi, political analyst at the university. thank a ran public shaming of the unvaccinated. that's how a student group is describing what a leading european business school calls it's fast lane for the inoculated students who have how the cobra job can get this yellow watermark on their past to enter any building and take exams at the vienna university of economics. and business, but those who haven't had a shot must wait in line and have their documents and negative p c r test checked here, some reaction we got to the controversal new diffuse a little bit like ha, they're pushing good school to get vaccinated them. i really don't like this because i mean, other way i will be that the vaccinate with already. but right now i,
11:28 am
i don't like these fresh. i don't like everything now easier to get back. so you know, the elaborate the bars, you know, so i think that maybe with liberty uses the student id, yellow sticker, and with it you can get faster through university controls. we have 2.5, g control measures here. but in reality, there is not much difference. it just helps you get in faster. while the fast lane was brought in to speed op entry after the austrian capital introduced stricter pandemic rules to enter it. public places people in vienna must show a proof of inoculation recovery from crone a virus or a negative p c r test. but the head of a student group say, is the university's creating an unacceptable walk of shame for the unvaccinated absolutes. it is absolutely discriminatory and humane, and a very clear moved towards
11:29 am
a 2 class society. we criticize the fact that people are excluded from society simply because they exercise their free choice not to be vaccinated. a step further, the labeling of people who have made a free decision not to be vaccinated. it doesn't matter whether this is done with ribbons as we have seen in the past. or we've wristbands which is currently being done in germany and in some cases already in austria or with vaccination stickers. as is currently the case at the university of economics and business administration . we can only condemn it and call it a hostile and inhuman policy when people are marked based on their health condition or their vaccination status. those who have decided not to be vaccinated will not be persuaded by an increase in pressure, but through education and vaccinated people should be treated the university just like they were treated before the pandemic access to higher education should be open and free without any restrictions. the university itself told us that since more than 90 percent of students have had the shot, the move will benefit the majority. it also said it was wrong to call the new
11:30 am
system labeling. the president of the austrian medical chamber meanwhile, says it's about providing an efficient and safe environment for study. think it makes life easier for the students in also more than 80 percent of the university students have been vaccinated and they can enter the lectures. busy faster if they have this because you only have to check their identity. one has to ensure a safe environment in the lecture halls. and in order to do so, it is necessary to either vaccinate or test that the students are free in austria. so they don't have to pay for this, but they wouldn't have to pay for the vaccination. so i would recommend to be vaccinated. that's the safest way out to meet the extra holes. everything you want .
