broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow this is r.t. international and john thomas certainly glad to have you with us or the u.s. intelligence chief is hesitant to fully relinquish the power to monitor americans phone calls and text messages is putting early pressure on congress to reauthorize the national security agency's surveillance program which is set to expire at the end of the year with more. well the trump white house as well as dan coats the outgoing director of national intelligence are urging congress to renew the freedom act of 2015 and this ability of the national security agency of the united states to conduct spying on individual citizens now essentially dan coats in his letter argued that even though the program is no longer in effect it's necessary or could be necessary at some point to reinstate it and that it would be in the interest of the country overall for congress to renew the freedom act this is what
10:02 pm
dan coats said as technology changes his trade craft and communications habits will continue to evolve and adapt in light of these dynamic environment the administration supports reauthorization of this provision as well now civil liberties groups have argued that it is necessary for congress to not renew the freedom act of 2015 they argue that there are sections in the act specifically the spying and surveillance section of the law that put the privacy and civil liberties of millions of americans into jeopardy the government's implementation of the cool detail records program further demonstrates both the privacy threats posed by the program and the lack of use and for q.c. it is highly concerning that it's 3 years to detect the fact that the n.s.a. was collecting records even beyond the broad authorize ation provided under the c.d.o. program the n.s.a. should not be permitted to resume this program now prior to the freedom act of 2015
10:03 pm
the n.s.a. spying program collected billions of records and the freedom act of 2015 reduced the amount of data the n.s.a. was collecting under the freedom act the n.s.a. has the ability to collect data and phone records of suspects as well as those suspects contacts even if those contacts have different phone companies however there was a concerning revelation in june of 2018 when. was revealed that under the freedom act the n.s.a. had collected data on millions of americans that it did not legally have authority to oversee they said this was due to a technical irregularity so there are many concerns now but at this point the white house and the outgoing director of national intelligence are urging congress to renew the the freedom act of 2015 a controversial surveillance law investigative journalist dave lindorff believes ultimately the national security establishment will get its way. basically the vast
10:04 pm
majority of congress is going to support renewal of this horrible law and they say is largely what it wants to do for years it was doing a lot of illegal surveillance is. snowden reported long before it was even authorized and so you do wonder why they feel likely need these laws saying that they can do that and since they do things that they can't do anyway they were surveilling for 3 years massively beyond what the c.d.r. was allowing them to do and they didn't do anything about it the intel anybody about it only because it got discovered did they have to deal with. the u.s. justice department has unveiled a warrant for the seizure of the iranian oil supertanker grace one it comes only one day after authorities in the british territory of gibraltar released to the detained a vessel

intention to create a naval coalition to combat so named iranian aggression in the strait. middle east analyst. thinks the u.s. may have overplayed its hand with its british ally. very skeptical the u.k. and gibraltar officials will hate the called by the u.s. car meant a continuing pounding the tank and you know this by the legal facade it is a safe bet that given the fact that iran is also holding a british bank this is part of a quid pro quo whereby the release of the iranian tank will be followed shortly in the immediate future by the release of the british tanker held by iran we know that the u.k. government and their boys johnson as well as those in gibraltar are rather annoyed by this lingering crisis and they want to wash their hands off of it and the u.s.

10:09 pm
lay claim to kashmir with the united nations describing it as a disputed territory and the so-called line of control remains the defacto border and the countries maintain their own administrations within that territory but earlier this month india revoked kashmir's special autonomy status and pakistan says that decision has destabilized the status quo in the region the united nations for its purposes prohibits changes to the status of any disputed state and is also fear that kashmir is majority muslim population could be targeted by people of other faiths in the region with the conflict already into its 72nd year without a resolution. beyond.
10:10 pm
that. we've been hearing from political and strategic analysts in both pakistan and india on what is next for the kashmir crisis. it is something our nuclear blackmail which our son has been using against india bit by which they say that look our vehicle with nuclear armaments so we cannot afford an escalation or full scale war and so you have to bear with the jihad the stirrer terrorism that their sponsor across our border in an indian country saw in years trying to call the nuclear bluff of fine son by saying look i don't know for us to see is not set in stone if the circumstances change as our defense ministry saying by the chief means you find
10:11 pm
some attempts in a large scale terrorism wonderful meant you know an uprising against india i mean your countrymen are priced to you know do incursions into in your day to treat then v. me after eating certain in of it it is not a heater signalling not to our conduct in the military misadventures internationally from august on by spark there was a specter which is not of warning but it should mean warning from the from the perspective of the international community because in a broader picture than ever there is a war. and many of the situation arises where a one particular country going to use a nuclear weapon they are not going consider the option that since they are going to. clear all see who haven't lost india has blown apart all the by little agreement and 17 u.n. support constant resolutions which calls for the. sort of india has left more room for their dialogue but if international community does not intervene there are this
10:12 pm
there is this see india as a big market and that is why they don't want to jeopardise the evolution with them and that is why the one in politics isn't being driven by the hard economic realities paranoid by them what only. israel has said to us congresswoman who planned an official trip to the country will not be allowed entry the situation has drawn fierce condemnation back on capitol hill. israel doesn't advance its case as a tolerant democracy or invade us ally by bahrain elected members of congress from a visit in because of their political views. banning congresswomen amar and talib from entering israel and palestine is a sign of enormous disrespect to these elected leaders to the united states congress and to the principles of democracy. israel's analysis and treaty congresswoman and omar is beneath the dignity of the great state of israel. on
10:13 pm
thursday tel aviv said it would block visits by representatives of michigan and omar of minnesota who have supported a boycott of the jewish state israel has since said fly you could enter on humanitarian grounds to visit her 90 year old grandmother but she declined to accept restrictions placed on the visit defending his earlier stance prime minister binyamin netanyahu cited laws prohibiting entry to anyone supporting boycotts of the country the decision came hours after donald trump encouraged banning of the u.s. lawmakers. it would show a great weakness of israel allowed representative omar and representative chloe but to visit they hate israel and all jewish people and there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds minnesota and michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office they are a disgrace being critical of israel in the us can backfire on private contractors as well ever since the anti boycott act was passed 2 years ago individuals or
10:14 pm
companies wanting to do business with us state governments are banned if they boycott trade with israel but some are calling this a violation of free speech we spoke to the green party candidate for new york city council marni who told us trump's intervention in the case is the 1st of its kind. this is the 1st time that a sitting president has actually told a foreign country to not accept members of his own government so in that sense i think it's very unprecedented in this uprising at the same time i think many of us in the united states that if you really have $7.00 of this in supply and i mean this is a ministration of soul i think it is a double standard but actually what's interesting about this is that the fact that there are sort of this retaliation is punishment for individuals and even after even business it's that are being. first of all it's
10:15 pm
a. complete violation of the 1st and then i mean every american i mean we're allowed to point on any. forum get involved politically with issues that is really a violent person and it wouldn't wind up or that lot so i think that's tragic and i think that's immoral and i think that's the product question that over the democratic party really has to do has to look up look at least to stand up against . the 2 russian pilots who averted potential disaster on thursday morning have been given the country's highest honor the hero of russia award by president clinton their bus jet lost both engines after a bird strike while taking off from moscow's recalled ski international airport that forced them to make an emergency landing on 233 people on board the crimea bound ural airlines flight survived artie's ripley video agency managed to get a hold of exclusive video of the evacuation. right.
10:16 pm
but as you. go through what exactly happened it all took place so very quickly that the pilots were not able to return to the airport as they had barely managed to get airborne reaching an altitude of only about 260 meters but they acted decisively opting to land the plane on its belly in a cornfield just a few kilometers away from the runway without emptying the fuel tanks either a pilot in command 41 year old. had previously been a lawyer before training as a pilot he has been flying with ural airlines since 2013 and he became a captain last year his copilot 23 year old georgie morrison got his pilot's

10:18 pm
right one we usually simulate the situations when one or 2 engines are off despite all our efforts the plane was going down we realized that we didn't have much time just one or 2 minutes to make a decision in a blink of an eye this man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a nearby cornfield without using the landing gear and shutting off all power to prevent an explosion and various officials praised the crew for their professionalism during the spine chilling landing as well as for a well organized evacuation it is something we acted in line with our training with simulated situations like this before so there were no surprises the passengers were disciplined listen to our instructions and evacuated very quickly they did as we expected there was no panic on board even though the landing was rough the pilot did a great job he landed the plane really kathleen koch tell us please how do you feel
10:19 pm
now do you hurt your leg. you know it's better than if i was there lying on the field so everything is rather good the landing was good the pilots did a great job landed the plane on the belly everything is fine the media was quick to make connections with another's. such incidents one loss of life was a virgin thanks to pilot the miracle on the hudson involving a u.s. airways the aircraft flown by captain chesley sullenberger and jeffrey skiles hit a flock of geese after takeoff from new york city's la guardia airport and lost all engine power i'm able to land at any available airport they had to ditch the jet in the hudson river just outside of manhattan with all of the 155 passengers a risk used by nearby ferries and bolts thanks to the heroic soul for the captain and his crew their relatives and loved ones self all the people involved will get to see them again ramana koester of artsy moscow region if you wish and safety
10:20 pm
advocate and pilot get in told us birds are the most common problem facing airports in pilots and what landed the plane was skill and result. people describe it as a miracle i don't prefer i don't call america i prefer to call it a shiny example of the professionalism and skill of the 2 parties done a decent offer and gregory was and thankfully those events are incredibly rich. but a lot of those here engines. these days don't you know the idea of getting some pass through an entire career without even having one in 20112 at the same time engines are designed to accept the impact of one or 2 but unfortunately boats tend to find the area around our fields quite attractive incentives opposed to the environment. as a speeding up of shooters they feel safe from the airport spend an awful lot of
10:21 pm
energy trying to keep birds off the airfield that's mitigating prices like scaring someone some out of court suv used to tree bows to frighten off the other birds they have entire teams who work exclusively keeping birds as way from the airfield as much as possible of course if the birds are just outside they have to hold there's not a lot of the airport so can do. a new campaign to tackle britain's soaring rates of knife crime is seeing the home office targeting the takeaway warnings and real life stories will be printed on boxes of chicken but the move has drawn criticism from the public and politicians alike as are too soft to taylor reports now from south london. he be forgiven for thinking of you case only current battle is with profit but on the streets of britain doesn't move bloody fight unfolding rising knife crime has a rapidly becoming paved with 86 fatalities in london alone since january and in
10:22 pm
the past 12 months that i've been over 43000 to my for me to the fences across the u.k. and with no sign of the fight and separating the home office is getting created. if to try to tackle the problem we're rolling out our knife free chicken boxes and over 210 chicken chops in england and wales including morley's dixie chicken and chicken cottage he is real life stories to show people how they can go nigh free that's right when you pay is going to wing it when it comes to fighting knife crime the hash tag night free campaign includes digital posters as well as outreach programs where people face at local communities to talk about the risks of carrying weapons it will also see over $300000.00 boxes and fried chicken shop is just like this across the country redesigned now that the campaign's hash tag knife free and when you open it up on the inside you'll be able to read the stories of young
10:23 pm
people who shunned a life of crime in favor of school or music nothing better than a snap and a good read right well it seems not everyone agrees other than accusations of mismanaging fun the choice of chicken shops for the campaigns target space has hit us full photo with some people is this some kind of joke what have you chosen she can shops what's next my free watermelons instead of investing in a public health approach to violent crime the home office have opted for yet another crude offensive and probably expensive complain they would do better to invest in our communities not demonize them think it's 30 degrees idea you know because most of the people are using the my ferrari the young people so that we're talking about what are those who don't take a boat. to do anything different is a good idea because you need to decode people. to afford to provide special night right i think they could maybe aim you know public money into more important things
10:24 pm
critics the labeling the campaign for to line races saying it no i need a few times that fried chicken is the black community's choice of food but that nice of the fat community's choices. well put the marketing company behind the campaign that it will bring myself to have defended its choice of location saying it's a democratic space where the message will reach a wide range of people it was already kind of like it's kind of a new kind of opportunity really just the 2 screens where you talk to the young part of the 1000016 to faithfully roads has an effect on one person one person can see his message and you know put down and i think it can have that ripple effects and it can change many people's lives so for us it has an impact to one person is to prevent that actions again probably something my friends because they're with an unfortunate incident outside one of the board even betting and whatever the stopping if you've got the opportunity to raise awareness and spread a message then of course you can add to that now that where you are already tonight
10:25 pm
kind of those kind of well as the old song says clowns to the left of me jokers to the right stuck in the middle with you the left the liberal identity politics crowd throw up their hands and cry racism the last time i looked at chicken shop all kinds of young people were eating it and on the right you have people who are similar to knisley running down our police force by 21000 officers can you believe that since 2000 and then imagining that you can solve the consequent crime problems by writing messages on cardboard these messages are not was the cardboard they are being written on we need more police with more resources and more power to get to grips with what is a mob or epidemic london last year over to new york can you believe that somebody
