2:10 am
this is we or us as muslims we don't talk about muslims and they're not muslims or addition to us which is and they will slips what we talk about is just as. everybody's part that they are us. the head of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons a signed an open letter urging his own watchdog to give t. whistleblowers a platform at its next conference they claim that the a.p.c. w. suppressed evidence when conducting a probe into an alleged chemical attack on the syrian city of duma in april of 28 ain more gas if a small story. 7th of april 2018 terrible images flood the internet the news people civilians suffocating with symptoms of nerve agent poisoning the alleged aftermath of a chemical attack in syria with it week cruise missiles flying in syria.
2:11 am
generally when you launch missiles at someone you know they did something wrong what made the. incidents so remarkable is that everything happened in reverse 1st they launched the missiles and then investigated who it was that they should have targeted it took a year for the u.p.c. w. to compile a report where they said that they found traces of chlorine with strong indications that the gas containers were dropped from the air done and done today's o.p.c. w. final report on the 7th of april 2018 attack in duma confirms chemical weapons used demonstrating the vital importance of the o.p.c. w.'s work this confirms chlorine attack was only the latest example of the assad regime's chemical warfare attacks on its own population except it isn't done it's
2:12 am
our new raveling to whistleblowers involved in the investigation and now come forward alleging irregularities in suppression cherrypicking of actual findings the 1st contest that the u.p.c. ws acetate and that the gas canisters would dropped rather than placed at the scene observations at the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed at those 2 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft the 1st whistle blower was allegedly an outside contractor the u.p.c. w. said it took into account all findings not just here is the problem is according to the 2nd whistle blower a member of the team which was on the ground collecting samples is that the u.p.c. w. took into account some findings more than they did others most of the duty and focus
2:13 am
he reports on the incident the interim report and the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent the whistleblower who is identities being kept secret for his safety feature. at a high profile conference in brussels and his testimony appears to be much more damning than the 1st whistle blowers professor richard fall cause there at the conference where the whistleblower spoke professor what pushed him to come forward what was the gist of it well essentially he presented evidence testimonials to the thing that the report final group or could not be justified in the form that it was submitted and that it had been tempered with such a way to create a set of conclusions that corresponded with work.
2:14 am
the u.s. . britain france it would be the outcome of an investigation but the evidence didn't support better remember the rebel videos we talked about with victims showing symptoms of nerve agent poisoning it was most likely staged no nerve agent was found by the u.p.c. w. what they found traces of chlorine the symptoms of chlorine poisoning are different traces of chlorine if the finding of these chemicals at the alleged sites is to be used as an indicator that chlorine gas was present in the atmosphere. be shown to be present at levels significantly higher than what is present in environments already they weren't all that the u.p.c. w. said that that that is chlorinated organic chemicals which are everywhere all around us in our drinking water the difference is in the event of
2:15 am
a chemical attack they would be in a much higher concentration and for whatever reason new p.c. w. didn't say what that concentration was not it was the public not even to their own inspectors. but when the analysis of these key levels came back from the laboratories the results were cancer sammy barrick at unison who was the doom of fact finding missions leader against normal expectations they were not passed on to the inspector who was drafting the a.b.c. w.'s interim report on them the inspectors tested the victims the whistleblower said their blood their head and found nothing no nerve agent no chlorine in levels that would indicate a chemical attack nothing which raises an important question professor didn't the whistleblower come across as political perhaps with a bias none that i could detect and he seemed very much like.
2:16 am
international civil servant a technocrat but i think this central underlying difficulty was that the evidence of the. gases that were alleged to be used didn't seem to be to correspond with what the inspectors found and that there was a discrepancy between. the information that was contained in that report about these 2 projects that supposedly had evidence of chlorine being used and the indication that they were placed there and didn't fall there by the means that the report described apparently the management ignored not only the inspectors findings but also their concerns in fact whistleblower claims the inspectors were made to sit through speeches by
2:17 am
unidentified american agents who insisted that asaad was guilty that the asaad should be blamed the inspectors left fairweather the office feeling that the invitation to the americans to address. them was unacceptable pressure and a violation of the o.p.c. w.'s declared principles of independence and impartiality 2 days later the interim report was released a senior colleague told us 1st floor management says the very p.c. w.'s credibility we have to have a smoking gun and look how that turned out u.p.c. w it's coming apart at the seams but let's hold off jumping to conclusions unlike united states and powers are rather wait for our answers and the truth before launching anything at the u.p.c. w. . but i guess the best is comfy the sas we just prosecutors dropped a rape investigation against we can expand it you can sound a move though his supporters say it will make
2:18 am
a section of the us more likely we'll have a look at this just after the break. you know world of big part of the law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. efforts to impeach and remove donald j. trump from the presidency have clearly divided the country this should not surprise
2:19 am
anyone trump is probably the most divisive public figure of our time however all this division over a single person is changing in even damaging institutions is impeachment being normal. again our museum in the us has announced that next year it will only acquire works by female artist is meant to mark the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in the u.s. museum's director says it will also shift the institution's identity. you don't just purchased one painting by female artists of color and hang it on the wall next
2:20 am
to a painting by mark rothko to rectify centuries of imbalance you have to do something radical. the baltimore museum of art will also feature works exclusively by women in 19 of its $22.00 exhibitions and also include at least one transgender artist we discuss the issue with the leader of british political party justice for men and boys and also with women's rights activist. museum is actually to affirmative action to to write a historical wrong which has been. excluding basically women from from the arts world and i fully support their their choice but all too often in recent years i've seen some bizarre works they are paying for them. and you know very often it must be by a woman because it's been put in there. to satisfy some agenda quotes but you know the public knows good fine arts from poor arts i think my counterpart is not really
2:21 am
understanding the argument the argument is the fact that. we men have never big given are not very well arts and it's important to give access to art to all general to all genders in general like all races etc but did not say women cannot be good artists what i'm saying is that for you that i let most of the work coming out of the humanities where art please please maria let me finish let please let me finish what i was saying at the top of the virtually i think of every field where excellence can be measured objectively not subjectively women are almost an represented at the top level i think there's quite a number of reasons behind the one of them it's simple work ethic men men work harder than women we know for but 2000 study published in 2000 in the u.k. but world 4 in 7 british men works and only one in 7 british women is work said men
2:22 am
and women are different in order to play the meritocracy card you have to have an equal playing field right now society is not an equal playing field as a lot of studies have shown a statistic prove so you cannot put played in my talk of the card like we have this is an important move and it's an affirmative action to prove to write a historical wrong and you need to give access to people for. form a sin order for people to prove their capital cities this is all about forcing institutions to buy poor arts from poor feeble artists. swedish prosecutors have dropped a 2010 rape investigation against wiki leaks founder julian assange citing a lack of evidence is feared by his supporters that the decision will clear the way for the whistleblowers extradition from the u.k. to the u.s. where he faces espionage charges as are just currently being held in belmarsh prison in london after his arrest in april he was sentenced to 15 weeks in jail for
2:23 am
breaching his bail conditions in 2012 hearings proper relating to a u.s. extradition request will begin in february he surrounding now has more on the swedish case. for 9 years due to the authorities faith an uncertain future in the u.k. it all started with a sex crime charges in sweden that could have seen the wiki leaks co-founder being extradited back to the scandinavian country he himself feared he would then be handed over to the u.s. for releasing classified information but sweden has now dropped the rape case against the silent after dinner issue investigation and that's get it steps taken over the summer in india is now clear that the oral statement testimony and support given by the injured party has weakened therefore i have come to the conclusion that additional interviews with julian assange would not argue or d. avid in cherry bases in a decisive manner as such i have decided not to hold an interview with him up until
2:24 am
now sweden could have still off of the extradition now that it's no longer a threat that ironically means other than the impending hearing there's nothing standing in the way of mr thaw and extradition to the u.s. . that is now focused on the threat mr assange has been warning about for years to belligerent prosecution of the united states and the threat it poses to the 1st amendment the swedish sex crime out of geisha and led to the ecuadorian embassy in august plenty of film where he was basically dragged out of a pool this year he's currently in prison now swedish charges are being brought all the time sometimes his extradition trial scheduled for february next year but some are concerned about whether he'll get a fair hearing i think it's absolutely fair to say that politics now is coming to. an extradition proceeding it was not designed to be political or say that
2:25 am
politics absolutely positively should not come into play but should be treated as any other. proceeding where the u.s. are seeking to have someone extradited from u.k. to the us or u.k. shaking down of one extradited from the u.s. back to you. but i think it's cruel ish for one to assume that politics will not come into play in this particular matter and if he is eventually sent to the u.s. he may not ever that leave with a potential of 175 year sentence if he's found guilty of the 18 counts the u.s. has charged him with.
2:26 am
i. i. i. i. i. i. i i. the pursuit of julie in the silence is that the fear is about how whistleblowers are treated by washington although not every whistleblower is treated the same not
2:27 am
if they're protected by the cia protection whistleblower she is she wrong dealing of any kind in that government is a sham is basically on the verge of not only revealing the identity or getting somebody else to reveal the identity of the whistleblower but also bringing harm to that person everything is politically motivated that of the trumpet ministration as absolutely no credibility and no principles whatsoever when it comes to these things. whistleblowers should be protected whistleblowers should be lauded their heroes. whistleblowers do the store thing not for personal gain not for their ego they do it for the public good and it's proved to me that donald trump doesn't care about the public good he cares about himself and no one else i mean clearly when he says that he loves wiki leaks and then after he gets electors i
2:28 am
don't know anything about wiki leaks. just coming up to help us 10 haven moscow in the morning and that's how things are looking back again at the top here. reading this and saying oh you take us while the mainstream cable news media is salivating over the circus that is the house impeachment proceedings against us president donald trump the business of government rumbles on and that business as usual rumble has been felt most in the u.s. war in afghanistan usa today is now reporting that despite the supposed to drawing down of u.s. ground forces in the country the 8600 troops that president drawn will trump announced back in august the u.s. and allied warplanes are dropping bombs and firing missiles at insurgent targets at
2:29 am
a record pace in the 18 year long war and what are the numbers behind that record pace well from january 1st to october u.s. led forces have dropped over 6200 missiles and bombs on a bigamist then that number has already far exceeded 2008 team's record of 5992 bombs dropped over that same period of time while we might not be good at health care or cost of living we here in the us are very very very good when it comes to bombing foreign lands and more people said jones it depends analyst at the center for strategic and international studies and former advisor to the special operations commander in afghanistan said the strategy behind this surge in bombing is that the taliban may be more likely to agree to a peace deal acceptable to the united states and the afghan government if the taliban believes they can win the war in afghanistan. right because up until now what we've only been lightly involved in the longest war in u.s.
2:30 am
history we've just kind of bad of them around like a kiddie so that really jones went on to point out that despite the recent surge in bombing the taliban does not appear to be coerced and still believes it can win on the battlefield. so let's kick things off today with a look at the latest. by the u.s. government to keep on pouring money and missiles into the war but never read as we start watching the hawks. it looks like. this would. be the bottom. like you i got. the. world are going to watching the hawks.
