lies beneath the u.s. administration goes to great lengths to get its hands on the blood strawson arms dealer viktor bloom testing the limits of international law known as they pushed for this purge and extradition. the whistle blowing web site wiki leaks announced fresh revelations concerning the cia just a month after infuriating the pentagon by publishing its secret document to see. her go friends a self-proclaimed royals to a victim russian president from the kremlin saying it's his god given right to rule the country. and big apple on discord plans to build a more near ground zero in new york the split opinion from saying the issue is just a way of drawing attention from america's economic struggle.
6:03 am
live from our headquarters in central moscow you're watching argue with me nice and now it's two pm here in the russian capital five pm in bangkok where thai authorities say a russian businessman wanted for arms dealing in the u.s. will not be extradited immediately reports have suggested a special plane and fifty u.s. commandos have arrived in bangkok where victor boot is being held our correspondent considering the daughter of a has been following the latest developments in the case there's finally been some clarity in the case it is very unlikely that it will be thailand day that is according to the country's prime minister who said that according to tylenols because the united states already have filed a new set of charges against him that aboard those include money laundering he will not be extradited until those charges are actually heard for of course the united states realizing that they've basically said a spokesman there of the will right now. trying to do their best to withdraw those
6:04 am
charges in order to be able to proceed with the extradition process but for now the boot remains in solitary confinement in the infamous bank called hilton the thai prison in the capital bank called the first united states authorities are doing everything they can to extradite the man to the u.s. as quickly as possible according to some rumors there's already a charge it is a special chartered plane stationed at the air force base in thailand that was said there just to pick up food and bring him back to the united states so he could stand trial there but so far basically all those attempts to extradite the man as soon as the ruling was made on august twentieth have failed we don't know what will happen tomorrow but for now think that a bullet remains a towel and of course the united states authorities do want him in the u.s. as quickly as possible there are a number of reasons for that my colleague lauren lyster looked at some of them last
6:05 am
week prior to the appeals court ruling for viktor brute's extradition there was immense pressure from u.s. president barack obama's administration coming from the state department the state department met with the thai ambassador in the u.s. and said that this extradition was a top priority for the united states in the same manner the u.s. ambassador in thailand met with officials in bangkok and told them the same thing putting the same pressure on them separately six lawmakers from both sides of the aisles in the united states in the u.s. congress sent a letter to the thai government saying that victor boots release would be a threat to both thailand and the united states there was immense pressure applied prior to his extradition what's really behind washington's vilification though is the question and there are several different analyses for this one analysis that has come out is that bruce simply knew too much and could really embarrass the united states with the information that. he had he was arrested in the thai capital
6:06 am
bangkok in march two thousand and eight. mile by the us government using him of international arms trafficking and specifically selling and delivering weapons to build terrorist organizations and george bush in two thousand and four that a president. of the united states government from having any kind of contract with big that it would and his companies but despite that request despite that order by the president the pentagon actually extended his contract to two thousand and six so for two years the pentagon operated with it and these companies basically outside of the law he was taken down and that's why capital by joint sting operation by the u.s. and thai authorities or speak to the board has always maintained his innocence well investigative journalist daniel is still and says the brute case has been twisted to disguise american involvement time travel agents officers with very high level
6:07 am
told me that in fact the whole thing was already done before it started and sense that you know the court of course instance was going to rule in favor who would look back to the book was going to win the case and the appeals court was going to rule in boots against the board so that nobody could say that it was a skewed decision that nobody could say that the americans paid the toys everybody could say it was one for blood one would for the americans or said that the appeals court decision was the final decision because unfortunately in thailand there was more people to the supreme court as far as the four has a concern. and brian johnson thomas former arms trafficking expert for the u.n. security council thinks that eventually whether it's fair or not mr boot will be extradited to the u.s. . i'm not quite clear why the americans have fought this case so tenaciously maybe just imagine what it is spent on a single operation but certainly they are very very keen to get back to the states and the consequences that will follow i think ritu point one is that the reason why
6:08 am
they got the money laundering charges may be that they can concentrate purely on the sting operation victor is alleged to have agreed to supply weapons to the fark if that happens then the court in america may also be directed not to look at anything other than a sting operation so they will not be able to bring into court and to open court the many times when victor was of some service to the pentagon or whoever else i think the victor will go to america he will go on for a man and he will be found guilty on the narrow charges of of agreeing to supply the power. i don't think the. loss was good. there was no blowing website that angered the pentagon by publishing ninety thousand secret u.s. files is now set to reveal a cia paper we made the announcement as its fourth founder julian assange is under investigation in sweden on suspicion of molestation charges more reports well we
6:09 am
know very little at the moment about what kind of information is going to be released later on today we do know that wiki leaks released a message on twitter saying that today would be the day that they released a new set of information make a new leak we're not sure what time that's going to happen we're still waiting for it at the moment and we're also not clear about whether it's related to the afghan war diaries that were released as a huge volume of documents eighty thousand documents that wiki leaks released about the afghan war that detail. the reporting of civilian casualties the evidence of war crimes having been committed and misrepresenting misreporting basically of what was actually happening during that war a picture of a bloody conflict that's not going to come to an end anytime soon what we do know however is that those original documents eighty thousand of them they were came
6:10 am
exclusively from the u.s. military there was no secret information there no you know top secret classified documentation and importantly no information from the cia but this information according to it really does come from the cia so it's not clear whether this is the fifteen thousand documents that julian assange and his team decide when they may be originally now ready to put them out or whether this congress this is a new leak from an entirely new source which is more related to the cia this is a big day for julian i saw as the representative of wiki leaks he is not only releasing this information but it's also going to be revealed today whether he will face. charges of molestation this is really an extraordinary story came to light over the weekend arrest warrant had been issued in sweden to swedish women and women came forward one of them said that he had rate and another one said that he had molested her now molestation is a lesser charge than rape the prosecutor is going to decide on wednesday whether or
6:11 am
not he will stand charges for molestation the rape charge has already been thrown out the prosecutor in sweden said that there was no evidence to suggest that there was a rape we have to draw a parallel between these two events happening on the same day releasing of new information and deciding whether whether he will stand charges of molestation it's possible that this was done to deflect attention from this sexual charge that he may have to face now a self-proclaimed royal is bringing a legal case against the russian government saying the kremlin buildings are rightfully his the so-called grand prince of all russia claims it's his god given right to rule the country but critics say he's deluded and discrediting genuine royalty. the russian president of the kremlin. if he gets his way. need the grand prince of all russia but it could get it.
6:12 am
right there we are a store procedure should play a decisive role in the fate of the country property is a sacred right and we are the owners of the kremlin if the government just lodges that's why we filed a lawsuit for it to be returned to us. who would have claims to be a long lost the send and of an extinct in a city that hasn't ruled russia for four hundred years he says his ancestors and other nobles paid for the construction of the criminal with their own money so the family should return there. he has no legal grounds at all for his claims he's just trying to make a name for himself the law clearly says that the property belongs to the state his critics say the grand prince was a communist party functionary a bank executive and a failed palm entry candidate before quite unexpectedly stumbling upon his role roots which is this what you put in his is not a case for genealogist but for psychiatrists he seems to more discredit the
6:13 am
aristocracy than anything. despite being labeled alternatively mentally ill or a make a little maniac the grand prince remains upbeat about look i feel i'm not a clown with my heritage i've been given the power that ordinary people have not to look off to places and these people are hearings. the problem is unlikely to change owners any thought soon but what the story does prove is that with its recent checkered history russia has left a lot of people with claims to property some ludicrous serious. new york mayor michael bloomberg says plans to build a mosque two blocks from the nine eleven site shows a commitment to american values that's what he told gas at an annual ramadan dinner attended by muslim community leaders new yorkers are bitterly divided over the project with some claiming the issue is driven by politicians hoping to gain votes
6:14 am

6:15 am
the nation and they were on top. economic times when we're in tough economic times people turn to desperate measures to gain power a lot of politicians have demonized the muslim community and we're here to say no. we've seen it before. probably see it again unfortunately the right words are growing while less and less is being said about the country's crippling economic situation here inside new york city's largest department of labor office happened to get from. there are fighting to keep food on the table it's. like it's unemployment here in new york everywhere. for people. to listen it's new york city is at great depression levels ten percent of the country is out of a job and last month nearly one hundred thousand homes were foreclosed on and when i'm just looking at the time it's a house of worship something struggling americans are concerned with me personally
6:16 am
know millions of people at work but it is an issue that drives attention to the media among the employed five thousand are refusing to work construction workers have signed a pledge refusing to build the islamic cultural center if it is to rise if anything can trump america's capitalism clearly its anger. r.t. new york. trying to force countries to accept democracy is a hopeless task that's according to historian and theorist john donne who thinks the process of change. he wants his full interview in about fifteen minutes time. the process of democratization you could say is progress towards a very good outcome which hasn't actually come anywhere in the world so far so if you have an ambitious good step short of democratization what those two experiences
