another day and yet that meeting revelations to the case communications head cool of his documents reveal the legs that he went to to keep the math surveillance program secret. also are today the price of membership london's being forced to cough up a staggering twenty seven billion pounds a year for complying with many regulations. plus nato ties are put to the test as turkey turns away from its allies in seeking a missile the fans deal with china.
this is r.t. coming to life in moscow with memory. the snowden revelations keep on coming the was latest one hitting a target away from home exposing the efforts of british intelligence agency g c h q to keep their practices out of the public eye for fear of legal action. has the details. these latest documents reveal the long fight the g c h had against making insists that evidence admissible in criminal trials that one of these memos detailing that. he is main concerns with that reference to agency practices in the extension scape of them would lead to a damaging public debate now ironically of course that public debate already taking place in the at the moment on the back of those edward snowden revelations and for the first time in a few weeks we're going to see the head of m i five and six and he giving evidence
in public now that will be broadcast virus although there will be a short delay now perhaps you'll see as this public debate unfolds wheeling out some of the media friendly people the documents also revealing that they had a list of people they could rely on for press handling but the guardian newspaper really pulling no punches in their piece today saying that the revelations once again calling into question the lack of effective legal protections when it comes in thirteen of our communications and calling this a breach of trust by the u.k. government on the grandest scale well all of those times a day after it's been revealed that the n.s.a. has been eavesdropping on the conversations of thirty five world leaders france and germany are now demanding a no spying deal from washington to be strong why the end of the year e.u. nations have warned that
a lack of trust with washington could damage future intelligence cooperation a u.n. resolution to restrain american spying has been proposed by germany and brazil which was also targeted by the n.s.c. last from the u.k. private party says the government's reaction to the news shows who they really are protecting. revelations of the monitoring of world leaders phone aside the breasts taking double standards of our ruling elite suddenly when it's a case of. telephone being tapped then we have the likes of kiefer speaking out and saying it's a real scandal when actually when it's a case of ordinary citizens that's what the real scandal is the real scandal is the true extent of mass violence in the e.u. and of course beyond. mr tiles a point out there british prime minister has been quite reluctant to take a firm stance on global surveillance what's been clear is that david cameron is not
willing to speak up in defense of britain and the british people when it comes to mass surveillance and indeed we've seen the extent of g c h q collusion with the n.s.a. for example in the temp or a program we've seen massive harvesting of the data through the fiber optic cables so i'm afraid we need to start to take responsibility in the united kingdom and i'm sure of people have taken a stance against the national security agency's surveillance programs earlier my calling to mom and say spoke to a computer security professional lackey who was forced to shut down is a line service in response to n.s.a. practices they would require a search warrant to extract key. under the new. lot of this case if you need a pen or if your order or again order which is a much lower standard to. provide or to turn over to you so we can't really operate
in that environment so we preemptively shut the service down it was too risky. we've spoken to the head of that lever did i want to just take a listen to that quickly. i know they threatened me on more than one occasion with jail i think the only reason they didn't do it is because if they had the service would have eventually shut down on its own with nobody to maintain it and the only reason they didn't arrest me after the shutdown was because of the the media the public city but it's pretty scary to think about what lengths they're willing to go to conduct these investigations fully agree with that he offered up a lot of it that being threatened with jail or prison for running a computer service for people is a very very scary proposition and i personally have no interest you going to approach this with to be a very specific legal standard where they need evidence about a specific person and a specific crime they bring that to a provider and they can then get records which is previously been the case but in this case they don't appear to follow that and it appears at least one judge was
willing to compel a provider to operate in violation of what i believe to be the u.s. constitution so until after the very. closely watching the n.s.a. scandal which has dozens of countries and tangled in it log on to our web site r t dot com to gain access to the latest updates background and expert analysis on the story. right on the scene. were struck. and i think the jury. in the in the. in the e.u. has been costing britain dearly a recent report by an independent think tank says london spends twenty seven billion pounds
a year to comply with the bloc's most costly regulations are the worst missed as balancing the books. david cameron's in brussels this week to demand the return of powers from the u. and he's got a new weapon in his all marie a report by think tank. being a net beneficiary of all of rules and regulations that should be costing the u.k. taxpayer a staggering twenty seven billion pounds a year. the hundred most expensive regulations stuff like rules on working hours g.m. food and a range of other addicts and found it at least twenty four cases the cost outweigh the benefit even according to the government. meaning that it's knowingly spending taxpayer money. in other cases to report the benefits of the regulations have been
involved. in that in the case of climate change regulation around ninety five percent of the expected benefits totally failed to materialize but this study only covers the top one hundred of the it's just the tail of the arts. and regulation which doesn't include. it is just red tape so obviously if the e.u. tomorrow those costs wouldn't just disappear but at least say critics it would be british regulation british people. many see cameron's proposals for reform to this european summit as his first step in trying to change the balance of power with brussels ahead of the referendum he's promised the british people.
meanwhile turkey is also frustrated with its relationship brussels. this is like him. and lisp looked at me love with her find out what's been stalling anchor's bid to join the twenty seven nation blog that's just ahead for you. more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. showing corporations rule the day.
i think people. should have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researcher. bill it does a lot of lies for complication months and on the show before that that ben bernanke m.r. carney are trying to monetise or flatulence that's the that's the economic growth in the u.k. they talk about g.d.p. annualizing at three percent growth but that's and you allowed to get nine percent growth and higher if you put the debts that are off the balance sheet like on the
bank of england back into the mix the debts compound a good twenty percent a year or so three percent a year in g.d.p. growth even though it doesn't even discount for the actual inflation number the fact is you can count me in negative territory they're living on party farts they're living on corney far this year that's their entire economic so-called growth. welcome back this is r t l u s is at odds with its nato ally turkey after ankara turned away from alliance members in seeking a multi billion dollar military contract turkey is in talks with a chinese company to co-produce missile defense systems sat firms under american sanctions for violating a nonproliferation act one turkish alice explain angers motives to r.t. . american. system is all of it so that the americans
control the entire fifth them if it is deployed whereas china is offering turkey to produce together. to control. together and provide turkey alone control of the entire system china has stressed the missile the fans deal should not be politicized as actually all about normal commercial competition professor by g.e. also told r.t. that the round gives ankara more grounds to dictate its own terms inhalations with washington. the turkish government. of course negotiate this situation we do americans but the americans have to make at this point station that turkey is taking part in the production mechanism process until now it was already offset. in turkey therefore is there a new way of thinking to a new set of confidence that turkey wants to be part of the entire process
meanwhile another issue of turning hands in turkey is its stalled e.u. membership bid and tensions are running high as very finished now reports. always the bridesmaid but never the bride progress over turkey's accession to european union could be best described as. this is like a. platonic love affair the europeans doesn't want turkey to go away totally but there's a war in the house the talks started in two thousand and five but brussels still says turkey is not yet ready with the eurozone debt crisis raging turkey's membership plans look far less tempting everybody's concert. in new further enlargement of the european union whether it's on the balkans or in turkey
. because much more travel more problems for the european union turkish authorities say they are still keen on joining the e.u. family but there has been conflicting signals from an impatient and current prime minister erdogan recently threatened to turn away from e.u. if the country doesn't become a member before two thousand and twenty three many greet with that sentiment believe in a fast growing economic and strategic power will not profit from joining a political and economic zone in deep trouble it's very clear that brics countries have the future of the world the usa and the european union be don't know when and how they will overcome this economic crisis they are not going well and they did everything and they don't have any strategy to do now but the turkish opposition believes it cannot make prosperity is not the main issue they say membership might help improve the domestic situation in the country where spiritual
groups can't operate freely and last year turkey was accused of jailing more journalists than any other country in the world and the turkish policy at the moment. no policy i mean the europeans. turkey. comfortable with that because they don't want to you we think this is wrong because we feel your accession is a strategic goal for turkey and for democracy to put it circular democracy approach it being a member of the community of nations and while the political cecil between brussels and and current goes up and down more and more people are becoming disenchanted with the idea as turkey's europe minister once said membership is like a pregnancy you either are or you are not where they go she continued for eighty years turkey is definitely not still and it seems to want it less and less
reflexion ati from turkey. and russian security services have discovered a large cache of suicide belts and explosives in a house in a southern republic of dagestan it's believed it was being used as a workshop and headquarters for future terror operations or for in this we're going to talk to a corresponding arena going to tell us how and where exactly was this discovered what was discovered near the one of the cities of of you words we're talking about almost hundred of kilos in the equivalent or very have to amount of explosives as matter of fact on top of that there were also women's wigs found as well as. car license plates and because there was so many explosives right there the authorities that is be along with the police have decided that they wanted to detonate those explosives right there on the spot this was found in a house which of course is now basically remaining is smoldering rubble as of this
point and the authorities are sifting through trying to find more clues as to who the house might have belonged to who were the people that were actually staying there and who is responsible for this cache of weapons and obviously. i have an underground terrorist workshop going on there at this moment of course the investigation is continuing as we speak and how significant are the end of terrorist operations like this at a time like this. incredibly significant as a matter of fact just on friday two militants so were killed in an armed clash between the security services and militants. on friday as well a man who was taken off a bus heading from the southern russian region paul towards moscow but he had a grenade as well as explosives on him as well now he's the subject of a criminal investigation of illegal arms trafficking and of course all of this is
happening just days after a massive terrorist attack in the russian city of volgograd in which six people were killed more than fifty have been injured of course all all regions all russian regions are now on alert for possible signs of terrorist flawed taking place. right arena thanks so much for bringing us the update there. you're watching r.t. and are you interested in learning how to crack computer programs well that's one hobby you better keep to yourself if you're in the u.s. breaking the set house every martin explains why. it turns out that not only the act of hacking you can do you know legal trouble but now just labeling yourself as a hacker can get you into hot water last week a u.s. district court ruled that if you simply call yourself a hacker you can apparently legally have all your equipment taken without warning and in this particular case engineering laboratory battell energy alliance is suing ex employee over claims that he stole software coding from
a company and the idaho court decided that the employees computer could be confiscated without notice simply because his web site stated we like hacking things and don't want to stop yes that's right despite fourth amendment language that protects individuals from on reasonable search. hackers are apparently not included. look at some other stories from around the world a car bomb blast in syria has killed at least forty people including seven children explosion took place near a mosque in a town outside the capital damascus this comes after reports the syrian army killed the leader of the almost her front a probable qaeda linked rebel group the government also claims its soldiers killed at least forty opposition fighters in an ambush near damascus seizing a large arms cache. thousands of people in the german city of hamburg have marched in support for african refugees around three hundred
migrants from africa are now living in the city and are asking for residency and work permits demonstrators also joined supporters of the asylum seekers who survived a shipwreck off the coast of the island of lampedusa three weeks ago. peaceful demonstration against bus fares in the brazilian city some power has turned violent protesters vandalized ticket machines a.t.m. and set vehicles on fire riot police responded with tear gas arresting over six people the high cost and poor quality of public services has been a scourge for brazil activists complain the government is more interested in spending billions on preparations for the twenty fourteen world cup. iran's media says authorities there have hanged sixteen rebels in retaliation for the killing of border guards earlier the country's state news agency reported that
seventeen soldiers were killed in clashes near pakistan they were reportedly ambushed in the mountains outside the town of saravana on iran southeast border area which is known for ass nick tensions also wise on a major drug route to europe. now what makes the us one of the most overweight nations among developed countries food activists say it's all about addiction maintained by a subtle system of technological and marketing tricks by food corporations looks into what's feeding america's food habit. it's the richest country on earth where banks can't fail and waistlines can't stop expanding waistlines in america are growing alarming new study showing half of all americans could be obese and less than twenty years sugary drinks and wider waistlines go hand in hand with one out of every three adults clinically obese and forty percent of children officially
overweight experts say food has become a drug and. cooked and marketed by an industry banking on addiction when these scientists. and the lab and they've created these chemical concoctions that are very sickly very savvy and very salty and they caught up with point scientists and food industry whistleblowers say big food companies engineer processed foods and beverages with ingredients that pique the taste buds while tricking the brain to think you're still hungry causing you to eat more but in a country where diabetes high cholesterol high blood pressure and heart disease are becoming all too common among millions of children and adolescents why don't food corporations create healthier recipes when one word would say great. we are doing mommy. kill. another major profit generating ingredient for big food is marketing in the u.s. there's virtually no regulation of food and drink advertising even when it's hard
it's children. last year entertainer beyond say in a fifty million dollar endorsement deal with pepsi this came as the american heart association released a report finding that twenty five thousand obesity related deaths in the u.s. back in two thousand and ten were linked to the over consumption of soda and other sugary drinks in france they have a warning label on it much like we have warning labels here in this country on cigarettes they put a warning label on processed foods it says warning to food may be harmful to your health while europe. and countries require genetically modified foods to be labeled in the u.s. the biotech industry and corporations like pepsi co and coca-cola spent millions last year to defeat a california ballot initiative for g.m.o. labeling it's very difficult to get the right labeling stand on to the packaging is big pushback with. producers who do not want to label what really is going into our
food supply whole foods market our grocery chain with three hundred thirty nine stores recently announced that it will begin labeling on all g.m.o. foods within the next five years it will be the first and only u.s. retail store to require the food labeling on the other hand when it comes to soda regulation is off limits new york city mayor michael bloomberg recently lost his fight to limit the extra large serving sizes of sweet beverages in an effort to fight obesity. i. say and soda lovers like v.p. want to be sarah pailin have celebrated the fact that americans can continue consuming and alarming amount of high fructose corn syrup and empty calories in one giant cup not sure if miss palin knows about the medical warnings indicating that if the country's health trend continues at its current pace nearly half of all
americans will be obese by twenty thirty marina portnoy r.t. new york. well as always again i had a line for plenty more stories waiting for you dot com including hundreds of oil spills are kept secret from the public and one of america's largest producing states on our website we've got a report on how the words managed to keep them out of signed plus. a sunfire the olympic flame shines a slide on the north pole in style for the first time in history as part of a such a twenty four thousand relay would bring you the best of the visual experience and don't react to follow the rest of the flames journey. i'm next this promise it's adding martin and breaking the set.
it seems like politicians can get away with anything nowadays but not all of them the former mayor of failed detroit has been sentenced to twenty years in prison after being found guilty of committing record tearing conspiracy fraud extortion and tax crimes while the mayor the prosecutor say he funneled millions of dollars to himself and family members all while detroit moved headstrong towards the bankrupt state it is in today this is big news not because some mayor took bribes but because he got punished the judge who could fix him stated why this is such an important case she said at the very least a significant sentence will send a message that this kind of conduct will not be tolerated yes sending a message you see corrupt officials are usually cowards and they do what they do because they feel they can get away with it when you start to put the fear of god into them they start to behave much better so the question is will the mainstream media grab the story and really use the conviction of detroit's former mayor as an example probably not but it would really help the country if they would but that's
just my opinion. one hundred days remaining. comes to mind playing one hundred days of flaked road just watching on our team. welcome to the. show thirty four can just bend over fifteen billion euros on full speed ahead says thirty to one hundred fifty million degrees become talk among notes to sell from st petersburg to france we travel in search of a song. known date we've got the future covered. well it does a lot of the most part obligation on the show before that that ben bernanke you
know mark carney are trying to monetize their flatulence that's the that's the economic growth in the u.k. they talk about g.d.p. annualizing at three percent growth but that's and you allowed to get nine percent growth and higher if you put the debts that are off the balance sheet like on the bank of england back into the banks and debts compound at twenty percent a year so three percent a year in g.d.p. growth even though it doesn't even discount for the actual inflation number the fact is you can come out of these in negative territory they're living on carty farts they're living on corny farts here that's their entire economic so-called growth. of. what's going on guys i'm happy martin and this is breaking the set so the n.s.a. is a leaky faucet just won't stop therapy and we hardly know that the us government has
attended told me years of world leaders and france germany and brazil and just yesterday we learned the extent of the n.s.a.'s global spying apparatus goes well beyond these three countries yes apparently eavesdropping on the phone calls of longtime allies just isn't enough to quell uncle peeping sam is voyeurism addiction according to a two thousand and six classified memo released by the guardian the n.s.a. has monitored the phone calls of thirty five world leaders and the best part is that the memo acknowledges that the spying has produced virtually no report of the intelligence so not only are we pissing off our most trusted allies but we're doing it for no reason. i think we all know what's really going on here this gives the u.s. the upper hand on virtually all diplomatic issues what better way to win that chess game of global politics if you already know everyone's next move. much of the benefit this information could provide american industry and in fact n.s.a. carries out and does.
