11:02 am
wait. for or we can choose to unite and support the best deal that can be negotiated this deal the withdrawal agreement and the outline political career a should represent a huge and damaging failure as a psychologist it's clear to me to see that the prime minister is in denial the prime minister comes before us today trying to sell us the deal that is already dead in the water i'm almost tempted to ask if the honorable members opposite will put their hands up if they actually do support the prime minister and the senate proposal and. my road order for fruit so good we would leave the customs union. the next two says of a walk to my right over the probe so that she would move the integrity of the united kingdom the whole procedure called says otherwise my right on who froze so
11:03 am
that we would be armed to the jurisdiction of the european court of justice all score hundred seventy four says otherwise quite chaotic times in the u.k. at the moment as theresa may not only tries to push through and see her brecht's a deal but also essentially save her post as prime minister of this country we're seeing right now a new set of resignations having taken place this morning with high profile cabinet ministers and junior ministers heading towards the door in defiance of may's approach towards bracks it's we certainly know that this is an extremely nerve wracking time not just for her but for the rest of the country that i was watching exactly where this brags that chaos is going to be leading i can show you some newspapers here that are not being forgiving towards to resubmit all. well this one is pretty self-explanatory as you can see there are others that are talking about
11:04 am
eleven ministers rejected her proposals forty tory rebels are plotting to bring her down war cabinet and others are seeing me papers over the cracks and here we have another one that talks about a split cabinet a split party and a split nation and indeed all of this comes following theresa may yesterday holding an entire five hour session with her cabinet ministers trying to push through and convince them that her draft a deal agreed with the e.u. is the best one in the only one possible indeed we saw a very tense and divided cabinet. members of which did not necessarily want to accept what she was offering the alternatives to her pushing them to agree with her were resignation some of them we have seen today there's been quite a bit of talk of me potentially having to resign herself and today she has also been appearing in parliament where there is still of course quite a bit of indignation because what happens next is this draft deal now that it's
11:05 am
been approved by cabinet ministers following quite a fight it is going to go to brussels where it will be signed off by e.u. member states but then it has to come back to westminster and be approved in parliament and that is where it gets tricky course over the last several weeks there has been speculation has been ripe that a possible vote of no confidence could take place with the letters floating in of tory m.p.'s demanding that theresa may step down there have been a renewed wave of these speculations going around today saying that this could happen as early as today this thursday because of this renewed dissatisfaction with the way to recently has been handling this so indeed a very very chaotic time as theresa may try is to do her best at this point to try to keep this ship afloat professor of u.k. politics at reading university talk to mark shannon believes that the reason may
11:06 am
come to deliver the brics it the way she wanted to two years ago. probably is the best possible deal that she could get but what it has shown is that after two years of negotiations with the other twenty seven members of the e.u. that the best possible deal the u.k. can get is not going to be as good as the deal they have currently as members but what she is trying to forge is the deal that minimizes the economic impacts on the country if we go over a cliff with hard brakes it hard exit that could have highly mental effects on the economics on business within the country but she really doesn't want to concede that the country made a bad decision in twenty sixteen she's still going along the lines of juicy with the will of the people and that she has to deliver some kind of breaks that the best chance she has of surviving is that there won't be more than one hundred fifty
11:07 am
eight people voting against her if this vote of no confidence comes through which is very very likely and she may well the survive because the tory party is probably very concerned that if she goes her replacement could be someone who is seen as less palatable to the u.k. public and it might throw the whole country into election fever and we might end up with a general election and at the moment there is no guarantee to the tories that they will get back into power. the newly declassified documents do reveal the cia sought to experiment with the so-called truth serum as part of a program called project medication this involved drugging prisoners who had not succumbed to other and interrogation techniques. and was previously undisclosed element of this program in which in addition to the physical and psychological torture that the cia was engaged in several ca doctors decided to try to figure out
11:08 am
whether they could also find some kind of truth serum that they would use against people's. will to inject them with and make them talk while the american civil liberties union did fight in court for two years to get the documents and they gave the lowdown to you on the cia's extraordinary rendition program with more details his motive gets the. it wasn't an isolated case or to an accident or oversight was government sanctioned systematic or that they were manuals instructions on how to inflict pain that's not a secret in the immediate aftermath of nine eleven we tortured some folks see torture isn't only frowned upon because it's evil vile it's also ineffective problem number one imagine the cia's surprise when those people that they were putting through hell resisted grew used to it enhanced interrogation
11:09 am
techniques were begun within six hours these progressed from attention flaps and walling to confinement in both large about five hours and small about one hour book says and finally to the waterboard amazingly resistant to waterboard what happened was that the victims and this is problem number two adapted to suffering cia's own words the prisoners began to see certain torture procedures as escape a break from other harsher measures what a conundrum here having slapped beaten confined and water boarded these people they were getting results so they opted for something new something like a truth serum problem was and this is problem number three seriously illegal there were at least two legal obstacles approved mission against medical experimentation on prisoners and a ban on interrogation or use of mind altering drugs the question became moot since
11:10 am
the legal department did not want to raise another issue with the department of justice problem number four revulsion cia tortures according to the torturers themselves the doctors others who were present were horrendous to watch the whole. experienced responsible medical officer did was visually and psychologically very uncomfortable for all those witnessing it the problem was so widespread and so serious that employees had to be counseled and then checked to make sure they were still all right in the head after everything they had seen and done and they began only hiring people who had a stomach for torture let me be clear on what the cia doctors role was here when the cia tortures were torturing a prisoner for example by bach by waterboarding him say doctors would medically resuscitate the prisoner when he would become unconscious from too much torture
11:11 am
what they did was allow the cia to continue torturing people over and over problem number five a lot of problems here journalists activists and juice they kept prime kept sniffing around digging up details and publicizing everything over the government the cia they resisted see for example how the document that revealed all of these looked initially when released under the freedom of information act in two thousand and sixteen not a lot of information in it it's almost like two fingers to the press sometimes these court battles took years but they got it out eventually. ancient history you might say we knew most of this plus it happened in the early
11:12 am
two thousand lessons have been learned and this torture will never happen again. you think they said what do you think about waterboarding i said i like it a lot they don't think it's tough for them. with have to keep in mind that we're talking about a forty four country wide torture program. so it's a very rich complex torture machine that was put in place with obviously many hundreds of people complicit and did in the torture that happen so this is a high level of top levels of the you. must be also military people involved in creating the wealthy and implementing seems to me a shift in that maybe people the cia and the in the federal government the security organs the people that are involved in this kind of thing it is very possible that
11:13 am
they believe this is a way to to to achieve their goals and then and bypass the label of torture the concept of torture is to treat human beings as if they are less than less than human less than animal lesson plan that they are they are not even living creatures they if they are. cogs in a wheel experiment in medically with these people it is the equivalent of torture it is just as dehumanizing. how the world anti-doping agency why they were set to visit in a bar free moscow later this month it is part of russia is that it's to rebuild his reputation in the wake of the dating scandal which rocked world sport wada made the announcement at a meeting in azerbaijan. he sent us this report from the capital bucko. i know from the meeting that i wonder delegation vision russia to meet this year's. vision on
11:14 am
the twenty. people. we will complete dish work well before the date of thirty first december twenty eighth which was really. between meeting and ship them the water foundation board met in baku genuine firestorm among its ranks with flying high from the other side of the atlantic the u.s. accusing the water of you know caving into the russians and criticizing the decision in september to reinstate. but this time the big news obviously obviously of the day is that moscow and the sports minister of russia allowed. the access to its laboratories in moscow particular you read samples which was the biggest and the most important criteria of assad has not conditional unconditional reinstatement in september now we know that there was a delegation will travel to moscow on november twenty eighth so i asked the president of water so craig reedy aware that he felt this was the end of the saga
11:15 am
does this new developments with. the water people going to moscow on the women twenty eighth means that all the concerns regarding this cooperation between the russian authorities and water can be put to rest will resolve the situation with the russian of those douche. being asian she is complying subject to the condition of the little ones like conditions which beautified then we carry on as normal i also managed to later catch up with the secretary general of the organization is there live in italy he said pretty much the same confidence as the president while i have no reason not to share his confidence i'm in the russian authorities told us that they would do it back in september so we. trust that they will keep their promises before the thirty first of december but i'd like to remind that this happens among the very strong confrontation between the u.s.
11:16 am
anti-doping agency vocal critics of reinstatement they even had a private summit in washington d.c. to two weeks ago where they even hinted at a possibility of pulling the budget that the u.s. contributes every year to waters annual budget and i also asked the president of whether he felt there was any kind of confrontation with their u.s. colleagues is there a conflict of any kind with the u.s. anti-doping agency and u.k. and i'd open agency following the summit at the white house a few weeks ago i think it would be easier to she. indicated it was pretty usually. it was limited to people particular. decision and she shows now we also have a confirmation from the russian ministry official from the minister himself that russia indeed granted the access to moscow aboard stories and obviously we'll be
11:17 am

affairs who are the majority world of the global south and that's really the reason why these reforms are. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express. something. that you'd like to be close that's what the four korean people are. interested always at the water's edge. they should. welcome back now after the hotly contested midterm elections in the u.s. amid allegations of for award the state of florida is holding

11:20 am
controversy back then and a recount controversy today the woman who's in charge of tallying votes in one particular county brenda snipes was caught destroying ballots too soon during the twenty sixteen reelection bid by democratic rep debbie wasserman schultz now debbie wasserman schultz's name is synonymous with corrupt in her party practices from back when she was d.n.c. chief and favored hillary clinton over burning. republicans are quick to remember that scandal now even former florida governor jeb bush who appointed brenda snipes wants her out there is no question the broward county supervisor of elections brenda snipes failed to comply with florida law multiple counts supervisors snipes should be removed from her office for the

recounts however jeb bush is reputation isn't exactly clean either many of the cues to him of delivering florida for his brother back in two thousand by purging the voter rolls thank you very much. and god bless america so no matter who ends up winning the election or the twenty twenty presidential vote one thing is pretty clear i have a very good reputation for weather but it's not so hot when it comes to counting votes. our new york well donald trump is already crying foul on twitter and says that and is no longer possible as large numbers of new ballots have showed up out of nowhere the president's demanding that the election results speak old in favor of the republican candidates rick scott or so wrong to scientists. they were hoping to us what the boulevards of paris for the streets of shanghai but passengers on a flight to china to get more than
