for over a jacket the older brother to milan twenty six year old to milan of course died in a boston hospital after being taken into custody by police and the f.b.i. has been highly criticized for avoiding to take note of his identity. well despite being of chechen descent the alleged bombers spent most of their lives in the us off with their parents applied for asylum both were visitors to russia with this didn't stop moscow from raising the alarm of a possible terrorist intentions of the older brother. can report some of the concerns failed to prevent the boston tragedy. as the dust settles in the wake of boston bombings the question many ask is why and how could u.s. federal authorities fail to act on the valuable intelligence from two years ago stating that the middle of was radicalized dangerous and quote prepared to join unspecified underground groups that's the information the f.b.i.
6:03 am
says they received from the russian government so two years ago the f.b.i. interviewed the guy and reported back to the russians that they found nothing suspicious since then they've apparently failed to monitor the middleman because if they have they probably discovered his you tube page under his own name by the way full of radical content with a playlist titled terrorists so you have intelligence from a foreign government you have the individual openly sharing radical content and yet somehow he's off the radar the fear is the reason the f.b.i. dropped the ball on the alleged russian intelligence is that they treated it as soley russia's problem they may have taken the marylands chechen background into consideration and they may have ended up looking at this individual from a more political rather than purely law enforcement point of view this is possible given the history of all the requests and pleas that russia has made in the past with regards to a number of individuals from north caucasus accused of heinous crimes particularly those of chechen background one example moderates who was known as the right hand
6:04 am
of the internationally recognized chechen terrorists. just a quick reminder of who was he was killed in two thousand and six. record as a chechen militant leader included in one thousand nine hundred ninety five he and his gang attacked the city of good yarn of took up to one thousand eight hundred residents of that city hostage in a hospital including one hundred fifty children at least one hundred forty people died as a result of that attack also as he gained power in the region stated his objective to have all muslim regions in russia break away from the country it was basically a call to start a war on all fronts among his other heinous acts that was to. school hostage crisis in beslan in two thousand and four terror that russia will never forget it left swe hundred and thirty four people dead one hundred eighty six of them children so the right hand of this monster who helped stage all this whore. arrives in the us somewhere around the year two thousand settles down in boston by the way and
6:05 am
receives political asylum despite russia's pleas to treat him as a clue criminal at the beginning us federal authorities appealed the boston course decision on granting him asylum then they withdrew their opposition after a number of political heavyweights in the u.s. tuned in to support the chechen militants including former sec or if they'd albright so when questioning u.s. federal authorities reaction to the alleged russian intel on the middle ansara naive it is important to keep in mind the mindset perpetuated in the u.s. for many years in favor of the militants in russia and against the russian government's actions to stop them new york city's former mayor rudy giuliani spoke to the confusion that many americans had as they learned about the background of these hard i have brothers the chechen revolution against russia is an islamic based revolution they want to islamic state in russia. not inherently anti-american right anti russian. american i mean and in fact here's the odd part of this if anything we've been i'm not going to say sympathetic with them but we've
6:06 am
certainly been critical of putin and how far he's gone in dealing with. so if anything they should they shouldn't have this anger at the united states so given all this maybe maybe this political mindset has prompted authorities in the u.s. to drop the ball on valuable law enforcement intelligence on top of. well the u.s. is not the only one being criticized for controversial choices about who to back the e.u. has agreed to buy crude from rebels in syria selectively easing sanctions in the process that critics say the union is simply supporting. and trying to hold up a city center in the west and russia leaves six people dead including two teenage girls. sixty thousand people have signed an

6:19 am
a shift here. after years of swallowing accusations of violating human rights beijing is fighting back last year the u.s. state department issued its scolding human rights practices report now china held a mirror to washington the u.s. again accused china of limiting internet freedoms the so-called great firewall of china where beijing has long been under scrutiny for blocking many western websites such as facebook google and you tube but those criticizing china are no saints the sounding people and cispa bills to control the internet data have made waves across the atlantic lately and the u.s. government approved interception of private text messages and e-mails for security needs are hardly contributing to online freedom china single party political system and lack of democratic elections also came under fire the chinese report made its wife back at america's multi-party system saying that in what seems to be a democratic process it's really not the people but the amount of money spent on
6:20 am
complaints which really decide the winner is the largest part of the us report was dedicated to human rights as they are today from harsh labor conditions to poor salaries indeed china's status of being the world's factory is nothing new and the cheap labor force concept has long been debated beijing hit back with a scathing claim that in the country where racism and discrimination officially do not exist after american and hispanic employees earn forty percent less than the white population in the united states and that's through the glass ceiling for women who earn a twenty percent smaller salary than men the u.s. report also lashed out at the treatment of prisoners and members of opposition in china contrast that with a country which runs a notorious guantanamo prison and the allegations of multiple human rights abuses within its walls with china highlighting full statistics on all debts in u.s. prisons and the use of brutal force against peaceful demonstrators in twenty two well it is no secret that china has a checkered human rights record but by countering the claims of those who it
6:21 am
believes should get its own house in order it is quite clear that beijing no longer wants to see a monopoly in the market of examining human rights. the reporting in fair and in the meantime eric draitser analyst stop and parry alyssum dot com he says there was a link between those nations labeled rights defenders and those who are opposed to u.s. interests for the united states to talk about human rights it's incredible hypocrisy when you have a massive hunger strike going on in the concentration camp known as one time the moment when the united states is engaged in violating the human rights of the people of libya the people of syria. countless other nations around the world the chinese certainly have a lot to answer for for in terms of their own human rights record but we should also remember too that the it is the and it states which monopolizes control of international institutions such as amnesty international human rights watch doctors
6:22 am
without borders and so forth which act as the arbiters of human rights sitting in judgment of countries whether they are or not violators i'm not suggesting that there aren't good people who work within some of these organizations or that the organizations themselves don't sometimes do good work but often are the united states determines to be human rights violation is whatever the united states does is not a human rights violation. well a fall from a branding it's atomic program north korea is now reportedly seeking international recognition as a nuclear armed state of the u.s. had laid out disarmament as a condition for talks but jonghyun as official newspaper says if negotiations do happen it will be between equal nuclear armed nations author and asia specialist him bell says that may well end up happening. i think the americans are going to have to come to terms with this. it's been on the cards for a long time we knew it was coming. and you know anthony is america's fault i mean
6:23 am
if they did start two of the agreements in the past it would never come to that if their start to the the green train work that clinton signed back in ninety four neil young the own nuclear reactor would have been dismantled and taken out of the country there would be no nuclear program no nuclear bombs centric set or basically every time the americans are sort of shied away from from coming to a deal and the problem is that over time they do that the trolls north koreans into the developing then huge it turns and then it becomes more and more difficult for the koreans to turn around and give it up. this is r t and anti-government fighters in syria will now be able to fill their coffers with money from oil exports to the e.u. and the union has decided to ease its oil embargo for the rebels now more crude transactions
6:24 am

6:25 am
five million dollar budget has been of re cut by paramount executives not because this is probably yet another stupid violent zombie movie but because the chinese might get offended according to the wrap dot com china was supposed to take the blame for starting the evil zombie apocalypse this time but china becoming the largest foreign market for american movies made artistic integrity fly out the window to protect the bottom dollar as is tradition and hollywood this is not the first time that there has been pro-choice censorship in hollywood the remake of red dawn which was originally a cold war era a minstrel show against russians was supposed to show a chinese invasion of america this time however they have changed it to north koreans who can't even defeat the us military in south korea let alone at an away game in the usa the thing that is interesting is not the censorship is the fact that they will censor movies for whoever's got a lot of cash countries the big markets won't be offended but countries with small markets will this is
