1:03 am
those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 doesn't clinical trials in her career, but it never experienced such a healthy skill to work environments. as we've been tabi on 5 is trial. i don't think it was good, clean dates of the employee said of the dates of interview generated for the 5 a trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firms tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of
1:04 am
a whistleblower who'd worked for entirety a for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over quite a list of issues including things like this. with the whistle, laura provided the journal with internal company documents, photos, and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say, though, we have not seen them in the article or received acts as some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contractor on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency and charge the food and drug administration know
1:05 am
about any of that. within hours, jackson received an email from the f. d, a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her to the sta could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f. d a in spencer to discuss her reports, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no or at least were notified. did that lead to any oversight of the company? by the regulator? the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in phases briefing document submitted an advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems as events. javier sites the next day, the issue, the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that right disconcert a summary of f d,
1:06 am
a. inspections of phasers vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent avia and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authorise ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been toby up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children, and young adults, a cobit 19 trial involving pregnant woman and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic, and in a global pandemic, we have a duty. this is the important bass. we have a duty. we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare,
1:07 am
the well being. the recovery off other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospects in the future. okay. not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical giant. but what i want to be confident about is that someone competent, whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the fall. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. we've contacted pfizer and vent avia, a comment on the claims as well as posing further questions to the u. s. f da will . of course let you know if they respond. meantime, to, to run g broad consultant position for britain's and address things. vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate greed by that has for me this morning is the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in
1:08 am
a way in which you can really say that their commercial interest is compromising bay clinical and research objectivity and judgment toward this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of science. and of course, the applied more people to the trial, they could have adequate stuff to run the trial. and appropriate way is a constant commercial pressure even with a sub contractor to make profit. so, to have fewer staff and generate results more quickly and cut corners in this way, commercial interest is pressuring, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug. or let's go back to our top story for you right now. here on our tea, the iraqi prime minister has survived an alleged assassination attempt emerging unheard. that's cross live now top middle east correspond policy. joining us this morning here. the give us details about this. good morning to you, paul. it's about 10 past 8 in baghdad right now, as we understand this alleged to talk happened in the early hours of sunday morning . what do you know so far? what's been the reaction?
1:09 am
well as you were to say in the early hours on sunday morning iraqis time, the prime minister, most of our dinning escape and made assassination attempt. what we are hearing from the military is that the attack was carried off by a number of drones laden with explosives. that struck the prime minister's residence, which is inside the green zone in baghdad. now, we are also hearing that the prime minister has reassured the country. that is fine moments off to relate to the taxi took to torture, and he urged. com. and a strange, cowardly, repeated throw, the taxes don't build homelands at the future. we work towards building a countries to respect to the states and its institutions and building a better future for all iraqis don't we call again for carbon constructive dialogue for iraq and the feature of iraq now. so saw no one has came responsibility for
1:10 am
these attacks back there has been did leave a text in baghdad, particularly filing the results of a general election were held on the 10th of last month. some of the need is that are disputing the results of that election of heaven on iranian backed militia who lost much of they've told me to call it in those last elections. so they've called on protesters and at the same time, focus to support them, has taken to the seats. and last friday, it was a day, the incident in which one protested was killed. those protests turned vine and was po testers pelting the police with rocks and stones. and at the same time, the police responded with live fire and t, a guest ah,
1:11 am
[000:00:00;00] with some of the most powerful leaders of the iranian best luck have opened these names, the prime minister for the day thought that po chesta and those vine and caches. and in faculty hearing now from a spokesperson of them, is the suggestion that this report of and major fascination attempt might just be a false flag to try and cover up the way with how the government dealt with those bind and protests on friday. the prime minister, however, has ordered an investigation into that incident, and he has all said compensation to the victims. the united states, of course,
1:12 am
is watching events close the as they put out the minutes he saw me rocks. the deadline is due to be the end of this year, and the united states condemned the incident while at the same time offering assistance to the victim. we are following the reports of drone attack. this apparent act of terrorism, which were strongly condemn, was directed to the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable. the united states senate with the government and people of iraq. ah, now the united states was amongst those countries who praised the results of the iraqi parliamentary elections. so of course, alongside the military withdrawal, they are going to be watching the situation very, very carefully and is very important at this time that there is some kind of peace in the rest committee. he's of the withdrawal that is happening and which will happen by the end of this year if the dead on is to be adhered to more adult teeth,

bonus lear. thank you. but he was continues to register around $90000.00 cove infections per day. that's the world's highest right now, despite the government's all out efforts to get people vaccinated on mass this week and i was in california was suspended by a hospital after she refused to take a cobra shot, retorted johnson films herself being ushered from her workplace. i am being escorted out of kaiser permanente hospital for my religious beliefs because i don't want to get a job. they deemed that my religious beliefs were not sincere. and i was upset about that because i haven't really sincere religious beliefs and convictions. and i wanted to get answers from the hospital as to some random h r person deciding that my livelihood was now going in jeopardy because they
1:14 am
didn't believe that i really have sincere beliefs in my christian faith is kind of surreal, honestly, because i love my job and i have been a coven nurse for since the beginning. in the latest development, a u. s. appeals court has temporarily blocked president biden's plan for a vaccine mandate for private businesses. it would require all workers to get innoculated. they'll take a weekly p. c, r test penalties for employers could rise to $100000.00 or more. and the court block came off. several states filed lawsuits against the biden administration. but the public sector vaccine mandate remains in fulls though with exemptions for medical conditions or pregnancy and religious beliefs. that last one that was particularly challenging as the belief must be deemed sincere enough to justify the exemption. it means it's up to employers to decide whether workers have a legitimate right not to get a job of the california hospital, whether no us works,
1:15 am
how suspended at more than 2000 employees who are refusing vaccination. it says they'll be able to return to work as soon as they get a shot. however, victoria jensen says she's not everything necessary to keep staff and patients say, but that how religious views we just ignored. i made a choice for myself and i think everyone is should have the freedom to make their personal choice. i know a lot of people who did not want to get this vaccine but did it because they didn't feel they were pressured so much. they didn't feel like they could, could move for and they just went ahead and took it. and i respect their decision to their medical freedom. i respect people who don't agree with me. this is america . and it's a beautiful thing when you can disagree with each other. that's what freedom is. we don't have freedom if we don't have people who disagree. and we should either the un and w h. o continued a stretch of the pandemic can only be stopped through mass inoculation or natural

immunity. the judges in canada have ruled that a comedian who mocked a disabled child singer did not breach the youngster's rights to dignity a comic mike ward hale the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against cancelled culture. as both sides reacted to the ruling. i'm like o, j. i one. this is a vest, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i, we want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that the job as a 13 years old to just think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should guy sing a jeremy gabrielle who is now 24,
1:17 am
was born with congenital disorder that causes scowl abnormalities. he found fame in 2006 and even performed for poke benedict. but in 2010 ward or began making jokes about his disabilities. gabrielle was 13 at the time and so it made him suicidal and that he was bullied at school. well, gabriel timely filed human rights complaint, but canada's highest court said the thing that was targeted not because of his disability, but because of his fame. they acknowledge that the comedians comments were nasty and disgraceful while concluding that they did not inside the audience to treat gabriella sub human. and while mister ward receive support from the comedy world, others still believed jokes like this monster have consequences. we had a lively conversation about him here on archie with a comedian, a rights campaigner and an online 2nd rest. you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have
1:18 am
a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister ward comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things, but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so, you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. got to charge in and find a guy, tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me and, you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before. but this,
1:19 am
he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak. that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from with is it looks a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy, he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if he wasn't addressing his disability. he was suicidal after that and you come be free to say whatever you want him be buying renting every way you want in the and you know, in your job i'm going to ship a nash. if to my, to my disable, you know, employee like that. i would go to court because doubt consequences for every one of us, though what we do in our life, okay, it's not only speech is an action,
1:20 am
no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that. i'm a lot of comedians and, and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. ah, but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job because the have you with us for this edition of the weekly, the u. s. military has concluded that a botched drones strike enough. gaston in august was not unlawful and showed no
1:21 am
sign of negligence as to spite killing 10 civilians including 7 kids and no terrorists of the u. s. air force inspector general announced the probes findings. the investigation found no violation of law including the law of war, did find execution errors confirmed by confirmation or combined with confirmation bias and communication. greg, the breakdowns that regrettably lead to civilian casualties. the couple drone attack was one of the final acts of the us war in afghanistan. the pentagon at 1st claimed it had been on a, it had taken out an imminent threat and didn't appear to involve any civilian casualties.
1:22 am
o. busy u. s. air force inspector general that said his report on the strike will remain classified because it contains details about the military's asked dr. tactics. the associated press news agency reported the pentagon found no mistakes after an independent review. that review also recommended the military improve its procedures to ensure civilians out present before launching a strike. john we spoke to a former us marine corps intelligence officer, scott ritter. he believed there was no justification for the drone strike in that heavily populated city. there is nothing but negligence here from the beginning when they identified or miss identified the target to the end, 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,
1:23 am
3rd time for time. it's the hundreds time. and the, the reality is the united states, as known for some time now that a procedures it has in place. it carry out counterterrorism strikes in a real world, you know, real time an event 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 the military to be seen as doing something. kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the horrific mode of a woman, allegedly, by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012. a family believed the details of the case were hush up . lead you the i did johnny. we recently learned that is the british army involved because there were a lot of cover ups, but we are glad that now think of being brought to light my wishes,

justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of one jacket continue 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 that answers they so desperately need her. i feel 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 to fend for her young child. and 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 at stores on investigations into 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,
