without trial books law. the case of pakistani national christie langon talking about my being cleared for release. imagine he'd been mistaken for a terrorist. ah, why for moscow you're watching on scene to national with me, you lash bob oliver. hello and welcome to the program. russia is pulling the plug when it's permanent mission to nato, the suspension of its hope racial is set to take place in 2 weeks. it comes in response to the alliance recently, kicking out a number of russian diplomats village spying nater as incentives, open to dialogue. but its policy towards russia won't change all seas roman coast through hall. russian foreign minister made the announcement on monday saying that says, starting on november 1st. moscow will completely suspend the operations of its mission
8:02 pm
to nato and from now on any emergency communications between the u. s lead block and russia will be done through the russian embassy in belgium. while an ambassador of nathan member states in moscow chosen by the alliance can perform similar functions here in russia. so this guns, just 2 weeks after nato announced that it would expel a russian diplomats for a legit undisclosed espionage at its brussels headquarters. and that should be in effect on the 1st of november as well. well, according to the russian foreign ministry, it became yet another move on nato's behalf to use the so called russian threats as a unifying factor for the alliance. and another reason to remain in international demand. let's hear from the russian foreign minister. newkirk will will use new, put a chill, 0 explanation was given for the expulsions. and the few days before the announcements
8:03 pm
we met with mister stilton berg and new york. he stressed that nature had a sincere interest to normalizing relations with russia, so as to de escalate tensions on the european continent cuz we weren't particularly surprised by the decision. what is it all confirms that nicer is uninterested in equal dialogue or joint work. sir dale our of added that the nato information bureau and moscow will also be shut down as a result, why been, while the nato international secretary, has already been notified and the russian foreign ministry statement added that, sir. it is not expecting any shift in relationship with nato in the near future. and independent journalist link, i re, they believes nature wants to show his strength. and that won't be a good thing in the situation where says, is not a new cold war. it is not the end of the relations drop, halted channels, ambassadors for example. so they can still continue talking and they will. but of course russia needed to show its displeasure at the fact that diplomats are called
8:04 pm
intelligence officers. and 8 of them are pushed out. okay, versus the normal, difficult relations between the alliance and russia. but something more important is that on nato has been very unpleasant in its declarations for several years now . and i would say that if the situation is degrading is mainly due to natal. why? because nato is looking for something to do. since water factors disappeared in that ninety's and the soviet union is disappeared. there is no actual reason for nato and the north atlantic defense to be there. so on the even day went to afghanistan and iraq to train forces that still at the limit off the territory that they cover. but now they, there were speaking recently of indoor pacific activities for nato
8:05 pm
where has taken a major step toward in a forward, in reading the north trim to pipeline, to pop natural gas to millions of european homes. one of 2 sections has now been filled to they were quiet pressure level. so work is current and a way to fill the rest of the network which links russia to germany via the baltic sea. the pipeline still needs fire approval from german regulators. it comes as europe is grouped by an energy crisis with gas prices recently at where called breaking levels. much of the media has pointed the finger at russia for that despite moscow, honory is gas contracts, and promising to burn supply. and his shyly davinsky takes up the story. well, more concern here in the you over a possible winter crisis because of this increasing cost in energy, particularly gas, so much so that the ease own labor commissioner is warning that this winter, many more people could be pushed into fuel poverty. there are already millions of
8:06 pm
people suffering from energy poverty, and that number could increase the commission could help e u. countries to limit the effects of the current high energy prices on people. but it was primarily up to national governments to take action. already we understand that around 2700000 households across the block are facing difficulties in reasonably heating that home. and those are individuals who are in jobs at the moment. so that figure doesn't include pensioners. it doesn't include students and it doesn't include the unemployed. so the actual figure is far higher than that. and while some e member states have already taken measures to try and shield the most vulnerable form, these price increases. other politicians are rather looking to point the blame elsewhere . and the finger is wagging towards russia with many saying that russia is responsible for this crisis that been countless. i'd magazine articles, debates on tv and radio, and even front covers all suggesting this just like this recent front cover in
8:07 pm
germany on the focus magazine are which says that putin, his cast off energy to germany, that a, he's waging a war and he's raising the price is using gas as a weapon? well, that has baffled some in germany, including the countries outgoing chancellor anglo merkel. who is not somebody known to min. so odds says this good kinda, to my knowledge. there are noses where russia has said we will deliver it to you, especially not with regard to the pipeline in ukraine. russia can only deliver gas on the basis of contractual obligations. and not just only like at the moment russia supplies around 50 percent of the used gas in doing the pandemic that did it taper off a little bit. but when it said that the supplies are back to normal at the moment, and there were some, unless you say, you know, this is nothing to do with russia. this is all a problem that has been made by the
8:08 pm
e. u itself until a few years ago. the european energy market was very stable, characterized by 10 to 15 year gas contract with russia. but then brussels wanted to introduce more flexibility with fuel long term contracts to reduce its dependence of russian gas. that by increasing price volatility and feeding the current crisis, or that decision has seen companies having to via the gas on the open market, meaning that they've been in competition with other markets such as the asian market. and it's just not that that some see is the problem. others have pointed the idea towards the fact that the e u is pushing too fast, too hard to move to green energy sources at the same time. it's not done enough to get those sources working while it's been aggressively shutting down gas fields domestically. and it's been taxing heavily carbon fueled power station, all of which, which is contributed to this issue. so possibly not as sexy is pointing the blame
8:09 pm
of russia and saying that president putin is waging a war on europe. but it does seem as if that is the reality of many of the problems that europe is facing ahead of this possible winter of discontent. and earlier, my colleague unit o'neill spoke to john this and also thomas was bender, who believes it's mostly the media playing the blame game against russia. this part offer of you can all already say it vendettas and to russian vendetta that has been going on building up in germany, certain german media over the past 2 years. and there it is really bordering on the observed because the same media who for years maintained the position that we don't need a 2nd pipeline north stream under the board, dixie, we don't need any more ration. guess the u. s. will supply us with their freaking guests, l. n g at ample volumes. now they are throwing the lane game at russia,
8:10 pm
and they're really being offended. why doesn't russia, why doesn't gas from supply us with more gas? so that's why i say it's, it's sort of absurd here. instead of asking why doesn't the us suppliers with more el, and gee, we heard as well, thomas, the e u labor commissioner, warning of energy poverty, a line that we're hearing quite a bit recently. and because of an already difficult situation for millions of people at high prices is the worst yet to come. in your opinion, it is still going to get worse. because the situation as such is absolutely serious for 2 reasons. um, the word economy did not expect the it to pick up speed as soon as it, as it does after the corona crisis, plus european guests suppliers or bias of russian and other guests of volumes did not expect. i did not feel up after the cold winter did not fill up their reserved
8:11 pm
probably. they expected the 2nd after a rather luggage corona year. where doesn't which dream to come into that. here we have the observed situation that people are that the european con guest consumers suffer under high gas prices. that we have an additional volume of 55000000000 cubic meters per year, which is physically installed. the licenses are not yet given for g. political reasons. there is a fight against giving the licenses, so there is a geopolitical lobby who fights against getting this additional volume on, on line. while at the same time, gast consumers in europe are made victim sir, have to suffer because of geopolitical interests of some of their governments. it is observed is the 2nd time i use this word observer that we have this edition of on actually rushes is filling the gas pipeline with gas, physical, the paper with guest for the 1st time right now. so if, if of course,
8:12 pm
western governments, german government would ease the licensing process, now this could be online, available for consumers in a couple of months or a week, weeks, or months. but g, a geopolitical interests, are fighting against that. the u. s. stop and void of janice down and stepping down that less than 2 months after the countries chaos military withdrawal from the country and subsequent taliban takeover and also comes as the u. s. inspector general plans to launch multiple probes into they pull out an secession of a diplomacy. corporations, i'll see is caleb more then picks up the story? the zalman callous vod the top us representative for afghanistan has been announced to be soon resigning at this point. antony blank in the us, secretary of state is confirmed that zach may call us. i will be stepping down and he will be replaced with thomas west who was right now serving as a deputy envoy for afghanistan. now z. i'll make callous. od has been very key in
8:13 pm
the events that took place of last couple years. he oversaw the negotiations between the united states and the taliban and cutter. that took place under the trump administration, leading up to the doha agreement between the united states and the taliban. this announcement comes as we find out that the inspector general for the state department will be opening an investigation into what went wrong in the pull out of the united states from afghanistan. we understand that diana shaw informed the u. s . congress that she'll be looking into for key areas of the chaos withdraw the united states from afghanistan 1st, the special immigrant visa program. also the afghans process for refugee admission in the united states, resettlement of those refugees and visa recipients. as well as the emergency evacuation of the u. s. embassy and cobble this is part of the continuing fall out of the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan, the world watched,
8:14 pm
as afghans were dangling from planes, billions of dollars of military equipment was left behind, all leading up to that bombing that took place at the airport. a lot of americans want answers about what went wrong. and furthermore, we find out that the outgoing us ambassador for afghanistan, mr. colors dod will be soon to be sharing his thoughts. he will be opening up about his opinion about what went wrong and what could have done differently. and what could have happened differently in the process of the usa withdrawn from afghanistan, quite a bit of anger across the united states and how the minute ministration handle things. lot of big questions being asked from both democrats and republicans. we will be anxious to hear what the inspector general has to say, and we'll be also anxious to hear what mr. callas, on, has to say, as he will soon be stepping down from his position and amazon benjamin american police clocks of his sons co found out code pink, doesn't thing the scope of the investigation will be wide enough. unfortunately,
8:15 pm
i think the investigations will focus nary very narrowly on the exit itself, which was absolutely chaotic. will focus on things that need to be looked at like the drones drag that killed as 10 people in a family, including 7 children. it will focus on why these special immigrant visas were not prepared beforehand. and all those things are important to look at. but when are we going to look at what happened during 20 years of war? all the innocent people who were killed not just in one last drones, drake, but throughout the 20 years. when are we going to look at and, and try to learn the lessons about invading and occupying other countries. and then i think there is the lesson of how do you leave when a country is dependent for the vast majority of its entire budget on foreign aid, how do you just pull the plug and not expect that there will be either a civil war or there will be
8:16 pm
a breeding ground for extremist groups like al qaeda and isis, or there will be mass starvation in mass migration, which will effect not only the neighboring communities but all of europe. so i would hope that it would not only be backward looking, but forward looking, but i, i don't have great confidence in that and staying with america after being tortured and held captive full, 17 guys at pakistani national has finally been cleared for release from america. has gone tunnel may prison. however, being clear doesn't actually mean he walks free and it's all happening despite washington admitting that he should have never been detained in the 1st place. murat, aghast day of explains mohammed rabbani is one of one of them obeys longest serving inmates 17 years and one month he has been locked up in git mo, by all accounts, innocent, never charged with any terror related offenses. never bore to trial. once
8:17 pm
a taxi driver, his crime was that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. on september, the 10th 2000 to pakistani authorities arrested to individuals believe to be hassan, go and his driver outside the apartment complex. by september, the 11th 2002, it was determined that an individual named mohammed acc, mad, glamour, bonnie or sinners, abu bader, and his driver were arrested and not ass and ghoul. the awful irony here is that the real hus on gold bin laden's messengers, he's known who rabbani was mistaken for was captured and handed over to the cia in 2004. he was later released and 2007 went back to his old ways and was killed in a drone strike. and still mohammed rabbi the is serving someone else's time in guantanamo the years. and the presidents came and went. they admitted that the
8:18 pm
arrest was a case of mistaken identity, and yet he is still there. guantanamo is all about lies, hypocrisy and broken promises. they promised me that they might let me out for a review of my detention, but that came to nothing. you can almost track his tragedy in released cia and pentagon documents. he was initially tortured at the sole pit and atoria cia jail in afghanistan, where terrible things were done to inmates to extract confessions, raw body was allegedly identified as the man mentioned in several cia torture memos who was hung by his wrists in arn chains and who attempted to amputate his own hands to stop the pain being cleared for release may be a personal victory for him, but in practice, in bond on them obey. that doesn't mean anything. one of my clients comes hotel california at me. you can check out,
8:19 pm
but you can never leave for men. are stu there though? they were cleared over 10 years ago, but at least we're now going to be arguing about when he should go home rather than whether, what little joy and hope there is to be had. this is knowing that he has a son waiting for him. a son who was born after his arrest and about whom he only found out when the boy was 6 years old. just imagine life would be like for your family without your father. just imagine what it would be like if your father was at guantanamo, how could they ruin 20 years of someone's life? there is no way of knowing when the e for a body will be released and what he will make of a world of a life that he was deprived of by mistake. the scars from torture, the, the trauma from long years of isolation, the stigma of being a guantanamo inmates will always stay with her body as will memories of war and
8:20 pm
terra's churning merciless military bureaucratic machine that he would upon realizing its mistake, took years to correct it still had, he had the sour, a former censure and google a keys as a tangent of racial bind's in it's algorithms. sure, those alter o, sees going underground. that's after the break. join me every thursday on the alex silent. sure. i'll be speaking to guess what the world politics sport business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. so it gives rise to the eh, question about these crises and who's behind them?
8:21 pm
who had the sub prime cries yes, there resulted in minute printing that made the top get richer. we have the cold with crisis, which has resulted in the top getting richer because of all the money printer. and we had a war in afghanistan go on for dec gaves, which resulted in money printing in the top get richer, you know, and, and, and, and he can get into the other, you know, into some other areas as well. really making some hard, making hard question ah ah, a full my carlita, google's ethical aly research team has a key that tend john's ramp and surveillance. and of specifically targeting ethnic
8:22 pm
minority says tom nick gabriel left google last year and she says she was fine for rice. he announced co exposing grace's in the tank. john's algorithms google though and says she has self resigned. gave her, he spoke to alex, he's going into ground program and we are entering the full interview throughout the day. but he is a preview for us. what is on this vehicle? it? there's lots of a sudden it call right? a lot of of a p eyes that sell automate automated facial and that is tools. we showed that they were much there. they had much higher error rates for darker skinned women than lighter skin to men. this is referred to as ignition. yeah, yeah, and that's spurred a lot of movement because a lot of people have been worried about surveillance related technology anyway. so that spurred a lot of movement to ban some of these, they use of some of these technologies by law enforcement because they're mostly
8:23 pm
used to surveil a lot of marginalized communities. and so for me, that's unethical. a palestinian, he wrote good morning on facebook and it was translated to attack them. and people didn't even see the initial didn't check to see what he initially wrote. they wrote, they saw the translation and they arrested him. so this was a google translate era. this was, this was a facebook and the underlying technology of large language. did they all use large language model? so what we were saying was sometimes when you have machine translation, you get these cues when you have, when, when you have errors, right? you can see that the grammar is not quite right. you can see that something is wrong. but with these large language models, you can have something that sounds so fluent and coherent, and it's completely wrong. so you only with these companies. but why would these
8:24 pm
companies visiting? there's no malice there. there's a mistake in the algorithm, and in the, in the software engineering, why would they seek to minimize the publicity given to papers that showed these areas so that they could, i went in. i would disagree that there is no malice, these large language models consume a lot of compute only the people with these kinds of huge compute powers are going to be able to use these large language models. and that leads what to what we talked about as being environmental, racism, that people who benefit from large language models are not the people who are paying the cost. ah, some of the biggest joy miniature drills in recent years have kicked off and the republic of the trickiest on the part of this year is planned exercises by the collective security treaty organization. the location for the trolls on the tantric ob gyn border was no coincidence with the regional still tense in light of recent
8:25 pm
events in afghanistan, reporting from the scene, he has all, he's a garage, donald, some 4000 troops, 500 military vehicles and 6 nations. all participating in de, one of what expected to become one of the most impressive and large scale military drills taking place here in the steps of a country that is sharing a more than a 1000 kilometer long border with of gaston dodge is done is a former soviet republic, now operating under the umbrella of the collective security treaty organization, a russia lead military alliance. the war games there will span out over the course of the week ahead. and while the 1st day has been quiet, there's plenty of action to come. certainly, judging by previous drills,
8:26 pm
the location for the games. just 8 kilometers away from the border with gaston is not a coincidence. when the taliban grabbed power in cobble things got tense on the side of the border. when islamic states started to take advantage of the power vacuum, it got even more serious generals do not shy away from openly saying who the show is for which in your midst this location for the drills has been chosen. according to the practical tasks, the armies have to do. we choose with several rules in mind. firstly, we go by the logic, the more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in was creating realistic conditions on drills, health armies to prepare for the real action. the real sites under the real conditions. it's a situation that is going to need some heavy duty war gaming and sure enough,
8:27 pm
over the next few days, pretty much all you'll hear here is the sound of every kind of gunfire imaginable. i'm a gosh, darn of reporting from tajikistan haughty. and that brings us up as a fair south moneys and set him in its sign up. next said sound documentary cold, i can't breathe. ah, what happened? i make no, said no. borders under 2 nationalities and uses as a marriage. we don't have a therapy, we don't have a vaccine. the whole world needs to take action to be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way,
8:28 pm
but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great. the response has been met. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together. oh the wrong one i just don't hold any world is yes to shape out disdain becomes the advocate an engagement. it was the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. oh is your media a reflection of reality?
8:29 pm
ah, in the world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation, whole community? are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah ah,
8:30 pm
[000:00:00;00] a game. so would they say, why do you burned down the community? why do you bond down your own neighborhood? it's not, or we don't own anything. we don't own anything. there's a social contract that we all add. but if you feel or i feel, then the person who in the authority comes in and they fix the situation. but the part of the fix is that the to wait and it's not a contract. when you tell that finish doing something about you broke the contract mover bar 100 year. now we play our game and bill your well with
8:31 pm
them to get burned to the ground. and it still wouldn't be enough and they are
