him back the had of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has signed an open letter urging the watchdog to give to whistleblowers a platform at its next conference was a blow as claimed the o.p.c. dobby of suppressed evidence and i probe into an alleged chemical attack on the syrian city of duma last year. 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 that syria. generally when you launch missiles at someone you know they did something wrong what made these sea incidents so remarkable is that everything happened in reverse
8:16 am
1st they launch 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 don and. today's o.p.c. w. final report on the 7th of april 2018 attack in doom. 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 its own raveling to whistleblowers involved in the investigation have now come forward alleging irregularities in suppression cherry picking of actual findings the 1st
8:17 am
contest that the u.p.c. w.'s acetates in 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 the 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 he reports on the incident the interim report in the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent the whistleblower who is identities being kept secret for his safety featured at a high profile conference in brussels and his testimony appears to be much more
8:18 am
damning than the 1st whistle blowers professor richard fulk was there at the conference where the whistleblower spoke professor what pushed him to come forward what was the gist of it will essentially be presented evidence and testimony to the thing in the room. or it could not be justified. in the form that it was submitted that it. tempered with such a way to create said who could. correspond with work. the us. truants it would be the outcome of an investigation but the evidence didn't support
8:19 am
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 a level significantly higher than what is present in environments already they weren't all that the u.p.c. w. said that that it is chlorinated organic chemicals which are everywhere all around us in our drinking water the difference is in the event of 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
8:20 am
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 o.p.c. w.'s interim report on doom the inspectors tested the victims the whistleblower said their blood their hair 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 bias none that i could detect and he seemed very much like. 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
8:21 am
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 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 violation
8:22 am
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 b.c.w.s. credibility we have to have a smoking gun and look how that turned out b.t.w. it's coming apart at the seams but let's hold off jumping to conclusions unlike united states and powell rather wait for our answers and the truth before launching . anything at the u.p.c. w. . now to a story that shocked the journalism community and france after one of their members was left with severe facial injuries while covering the 1st anniversary of the yellow bus march he claims he was hit by a tear gas going to excuse me grenade during an encounter with police a warning you may find the following images disturbing.
8:23 am
any such. thing. as if you're reading this awful fault when you think i was filming clashes between protesters and police officers when a grenade exploded next to me and then another one just 3 or so metres from asia and lead was a. form of instant tear gas grenade i'm still trying to verify this information of course and apparently they hit me with the same kind of grenade right in the face exploded into my mosque and smashed my plexiglass visor to look in advance how i was injured in the motors and on the upper lip who had i not been wearing a gas mask but it's plexiglas protection that i doubt i would escape this on skates because i saw in hospital how badly injured some of the other protesters were. the
8:24 am
all of us rallies are a protest movement taking aim at present emmanuel micron's policy as they began in response to now scrapped fuel price hikes and then broaden into including a number of other social and political grievances the part us are the most violent in recent french history with frequent clashes with police many have been caught in the crossfire. the journalist who was injured at the anniversary rally in paris believes there's no justification for the police using quote weapons of war. you know
8:25 am
i was angry with the police because they should only defend themselves like this when the situation gets out of hand but to use such a powerful weapon that they can probably control was ripped off draws or they can injure journalists and peaceful citizens passing by can also seriously injured demonstrators and i'm not sure using the situation with them is necessary as you know that this kind of grenade is classed as a military weapon and i will go to court i've already filed a complaint and i would also file a complaint with the inspector general of the national police just what i think that even with all the evidence the investigation will be still just like other ones of course there's often again that's our global news wrap up for now but i'll be back to top the hour with the latest thanks for tuning it. max guys are. looking forward to.
8:26 am
yanks this is what happens to pensions in britain. watched as a report. join me every thursday on the alex so i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to get a feel of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. good food descriptions sound up even for the owners so how to choose pet food industry is telling us what to feed our pets is really more based on what they want to sell us than was necessarily good for the pet turns out may not be as healthy as people believe we have animals that have you know diabetes in arthritis they have auto immune disorders they've cut allergies we are actually creating these problems it's a huge epidemic of problems all of them i believe can be linked to very simple problem
8:27 am
of diet and some dog owners so heartbreaking stories about their pets streets the larger corporations are not very interested in proving or disproving the value of their food because they're already making it a $1000000000.00 on it and there's no reason to do that research. and welcome the boom bust broadcasting around the world and covering all aspects of our global economy in the 21st century and i'm christiane washington coming out today. named very optimistic because they're trying to pass this fall i think it's a homerun i think it's going to pass some are calling it nafta 2.0 but the u.s.
8:28 am
m.t.a. is reportedly close to being approved by congress labor unions are concerned and there are some big questions about whether this deal will actually be good for. worker former u.s. congressman from florida alan grayson joins us to break it down. the 5 member no longer be considered a viable candidate form a narrow when it comes to see we'll tell you what one we said and i found out what it means for privacy and it continues over to the wildly popular app is now pivoting to other countries we've got the report straight ahead a lot to get through today so let's get to it. and we begin with what has been a good year but really a great year for tech stocks in fact tech stocks are racing toward their best year in a decade and that means that investors are interested in companies offering everything really from memory chips to social media platforms tech stocks seeing their best year since 2009 demonstrates that while the broader economy may be showing signs of
8:29 am
cooling there is a lot of confidence that tech companies will be able to continue delivering sales and earnings growth so kristie so while this is for many here because a lot of people when they think of tech companies in the time we brought bring this up they're going to think that's represented by just really a few companies amazon apple google facebook but really what we've seen over the past 2 or 3 years especially is an incredible surge in the number of companies that are getting into the space right exactly so we have this represent humming in every single sector that is somehow overlapping with tech so for example in healthcare we have we have med tech and we have biotech both making great progress and in advancing like minimally and basic surgeries and then even from things like agriculture you have ag tech there are now making it possible to to deliver nutrients and fertilizers to and do slow reading things that we have never seen before and furthermore with the entire retail and shopping space we now have data computing and our passion talent is now driving marketing is driving a lot of things but some of these tech stocks let me tell you be the debbie downer
8:30 am
here for a 2nd some of these tech stocks it feels like are a little bit artificial in that everybody calls themselves tech companies now i think of we were right for instance. they would say they were a tech company but they were to take cover they were real estate company produced to be something else in order to get that investor money and it actually worked with we were seeing that was something that the company did and that's why it's so easy because as soon as you say that you're a tech stock you automatically attain a higher multiple tech stocks right now trade on average about 11 percent premium over the broader market and they trade at a much higher multiple so things like we were in for that matter cloud kitchen's the new one that's right that one is essentially we work for restaurants and that somehow managed to get 400000000 funding in seed round when it's merely a concept when it hasn't even been been proven yet how is that possible in your name and all the sudden the money starts flowing in exactly. japan and south korea are going back to the w t o for a 2nd round of talks tuesday regarding a dispute over japanese export restrictions but observers say that it's unlikely.
