9:12 am
a category 4 plus winds and you know that is a significant significant storm and that will lead to really significant storm surge let's get the latest now and speak to n.b.c.'s jay gray who joins us live from cocoa beach in florida jay so the hurricane is gathering strength as it moves towards florida what sort of preparations are being made there and what are we expecting expecting it to make landfall. yeah probably let's start with that last question 1st it looks like landfall at this point will be sometime late in the morning or early afternoon tuesday this storm has slowed down significantly and that's bad news that means it's gathering strength it's forming and getting more solid and it really could intensify significantly before it does make that turn and head toward the florida coast here we have seen lines around grocery stores lines at gas stations home improvement stores packed with people buying supplies generators were sold out for
9:13 am
a short time here more have been moved in if you will is going to be an issue across the state according to the governor and right now there is a high tension for millions up and down the coast because we just don't know at this point where the storm is going to strike look at it it has been a storm that's been very difficult to birthday gets wrapped up very quickly in the warm waters of the atlantic and a lot of people now worried about where dorian could go next but no evacuation orders just yet. no you're absolutely right no evacuation orders and the main reason according to 1st responders and officials is they don't know where to evacuate they don't know where the storm is going to make landfall what we do know is they'll likely open some shelters tomorrow so people who don't feel safe at home can at least start to move in there what they've told everyone else is pack what you will need if you're going to have to leave if you feel like you're going to leave regardless of an
9:14 am
evacuation order do it now go all the roads aren't packed if you're going to wait for us to tell you to leave don't wait to pack once you get that word be ready to go and get out quickly thank you very much for that jake rain and for the sand in florida thank you. saying the u.s. a child of 5 men charged with planning the september 11th attacks has been set for early 2021 the 5 men include khalid shaikh mohammed a senior al qaeda figure and the suppose of mastermind behind the attacks the u.s. has charged him with war crimes that include terrorism hijacking in nearly $3000.00 counts of murder they could get the death penalty if convicted the men have been held at guantanamo bay since 2006 can greenberg is the director of the center national security at the fordham university school of law she says the man on trial were held under cia custody and tortured and that makes it hard for prosecutors to produce clean evidence against them. lantana opened on january 11th
9:15 am
2002 so interestingly in the military commissions chose the date the anniversary which will you know be 19 years later to start the trial so in and of itself it tells you how long these men have been in custody and awaiting trial they were originally a raid in 2012 i think the defense attorneys would like very much to be able to make the case that should be there should be special circumstances understood before this trial and they've been making this case all along that these individuals were held in cia custody and tortured and so what lies at the heart of this case is is it possible to bring this case with clean evidence evidence that was not derived from torture we all know from reading the 911 commission report and many histories now of 911 that there are many facts that are out there in public but what how the case can be. delayed as we've seen or
9:16 am
impeded or or just has got to these men by bringing the fact of their torture up is very important one of the issue is the death penalty this is death penalty case and so there may be some further negotiation there's been a lot already about the death penalty 2 of these men are very ill one of at least one of them 2 of them are alleged at different times to be suffering from some kind of brain damage or psychological illness so that is also going to impede the trial . indonesia's chief security minister has called for calm in the remote province of pop where protests have descended into riots people there say they're fed up with racial and ethnic discrimination and are demanding a referendum on independence victoria gate and the reports. in the capital of indonesia's remote papua province government offices set alight by protesters 24

$3000.00 counts of murder they could get the death penalty if convicted the men have been held at guantanamo bay since 2006 those are the headlines inside stories next. allies become enemies in yemen's war the united arab emirates accused of bombing saudi government troops to help separatists in the south can the coalition between the 2 gulf nations survive such a rift this is inside story. hello
9:22 am
and welcome to the show i'm sam is a than now threatening the saudi and morality coalition fighting the war in yemen the 2 gulf allies are supposed to be on the same side but the u.a.e. is accused of attacking the government that the coalition is trying to restore yemen's internationally recognized president says the u.s. warplanes bombed government troops around aden separatist trained by the amorality taken over the southern city we have a new government is urging saudi arabia and the united nations to intervene but the u.a.e. says it only tugs it what it calls terrorists alexei o'brien has more. on. this is said to be the aftermath of strikes in aden yemen internationally recognized government is furious the u.s. bombed its positions. allowing separatists to retake territory that lost to saudi
9:23 am
backed government forces 24 hours a. sides pulling in reinforcements to battle over a divided south and city and a country fractured by years of war like at minimum loss of all aid and governorates are safe now we're dealing with some pockets and terrorist hideouts which are sadly involved with what he's called the legal government. yemen's government can damage the u.a.e. bombing of its forces saying it had caused hundreds of deaths and injuries in a statement its defense ministry seders held the emirates responsible for what it called a blatant aggression and president so how to saudi arabia to intervene again separate us from the southern transitional council a pass at the saudi iraqi coalition that's fighting hooty rebels less than 3 weeks ago they took over the city of aden sate of the saudi backed internationally
9:24 am
recognized yemeni government. on wednesday government forces took the nearby coastal town of zinjibar before pushing into aden on thursday though they withdrew again president harry said it was to spare the city and its people you know what label would not only our situation is good in the troops morale is high we're heading to be on the subway and we will free every inch of the southern territory the violence has exposed an apparent rift in a saudi u.a.e. coalition each country backing opposing sides in southern yemen which was a separate country until $990.00 the saudis and their artists are divided on this issues because for this from a saudi perspective what they had always wanted is to ensure that they are not the threat that can operate across the border and launch attacks what its rocket attacks or or drone attacks into saudi arabia what the united arab emirates wants to do instead of course is to establish an independent does southern state and
9:25 am
these 2 objectives to do not align with the pm any governments asked for the united nations to meet on the strikes 60000 people have left the city batanes of thousands remain in harm's way as the fighting intensifies brian al jazeera. let's bring in our panel into the show now joining us from new york city a whole. absalom man director of the office of foreign affairs for the southern transitional council in new york city from our man has an bharati professor of international relations at the university of jordan and from london also on skype is elizabeth kendal senior research fellow at pembroke college at the university of oxford welcome to all of you in the show let me start with elizabeth in the u.k. is the coalition now falling apart it's difficult how it can be perceived as not falling apart at this point i think the latest airstrikes by the united arab
9:26 am
emirates are stepped change in the clashes in the south and may now be time to start calling them a war because there are only one of 3 scenarios that could have happened either the u.a.e. did not consult saudi about these strikes and that means the coalition is falling apart or the u.a.e. did consult saudi and saudi gave it the go ahead which means that saudi and the yemen government a falling apart and assert possibility is that the u.a.e. consulted saudi and saudi refused in which case the coalition is falling apart so you know you're a may have acted unilaterally but even if it didn't it means the coalition is falling apart or it were lizabeth is open for us i guess 3 beautifully summed up scenarios there has been which one do you think it's most is most likely were the saudis on board with this or card out of this latest action. all i think you know from the get go the saudis have
9:27 am
a different agenda and yemen and obviously the saudis are not on board but at the same time i think is blackmailing saudi arabia because they know that riyadh needs them in their coalition for their appearance of having a coalition and i think that think united arab emirates works unilaterally in order to reinforce it's whatever they have in southern yemen they want to affect that kind of a separation in yemen and they find in the. transitional council as a tool to further the interest in yemen and that is obvious so i'm not saying that the area is an board like it agrees on everything but probably doesn't have what it takes to say no to the 2 i would have right now and i made that kind of international crisis you know especially the do strategic development with the if that's the if that's the case let me jump in hunston i would have been more that if if that if that's the case what does that mean ultimately in terms of u.a.e.
9:28 am
saudi coordination will will the u.a.e. be ejected from this coalition as the how the government one point was calling for all the saudis have to look the other way and try and keep on board. i think for the time being there's no coalition we talk about coalition but in the coalition that we knew at the very beginning there was the one that fighting the whole thing in the fighting the haughty the is fighting its own war. for the its own interests so if we talk about the coalition the one that we know the saudi led coalition or the other coalition is no longer there now it's only united arab emirates and saudi arabia and we can see now is a kind of a clash between their own interest now when it was going to. united arab emirates i don't know but i think it's an ultimate. scenery that we probably see playing out
9:29 am
soon or we could bring in a huddle your from of course the southern transitional council what's known as the s.t.c. it's the action by southern forces which you're affiliated with which has brought us to this point in yemen do you agree that you are responsible now for the collapse of this coalition that's been fighting supposedly on the same side against the hoof these. no actually i completely disagree with the introduction i disagree with yes bickers regarding the fall of the call ation this is a collaborated coalition unit that goes through a operation or operates from an operation room. through a rigorous process before approving any specific detailed airstrikes so the u.a.e.
9:30 am
and the. saudi arabia are. they are working together on every front oh but there it is with the anti who at the front or the anti extremist extremism front ok but let me just as well now that i've explained this to me according to what you're describing them the saudis would have known that the u.a.e. is about to launch an strikes against ok what the u.s. is calling terrorists but in fact what we're hearing from the heavy government is these are strikes on the yemeni government if that's the case at all saying saudi arabia has approved or is in line with an strikes on the very government is hosting in riyadh that doesn't make a lot of sense doesn't it. well it's a little more complicated than that for over the past 4 years or for 4 years plus
9:31 am
the saudi led coalition has been working. effortless with. working. 2 to. fight the anti to fight the ots to fight extremism and fortunately the legitimate government is actually incorporating some of these extremist factions extremists or the radicals to the a slap already into the legitimate government so the. reactivating what would they have the any government is backpedaling by. after after raid these counter-terrorism in south yemen specifically ok i'm actually not sorry to interrupt you again how they're i really want to distill what you're bringing to the show this plan what it sounds like you're saying right now is the sun s.t.c. the saudis and the immoralities are lining up against the yemeni government is that
9:32 am
what you're telling viewers of this show be called a mini golf that includes as you say a stream ists. that is incorrect we're not against the government as well you don't have the injected with remus from the islam so so correct it where we're fighting the extremism that has been injected or whether they have hijacked the yemeni government unfortunately while everybody was clued in the saudi led coalition the s.t.c. saddam forces have been fighting extremism the internationally recognized government has really regrouped end corporator them into their units where that is not going to be accepted so fighting extremism whether they are part of the yemeni government is a regional security and that is let me all know how to bring i i or let me bring elizabeth back into this however you slice it and dice it listening to what and how to saying that it does sound like there is conflict as you start out by saying
9:33 am
within the coalition at this point with everyone pointing to the other one is harvesting the extremists. yes there clearly is conflict and i don't think it holds water to say that everyone's on board with this and that simply fighting extremism is a very serious air strikes many many many people were killed and they were from the government forces i think this highlights a problem of the whole rhetoric on the war on terror that was coined obviously initially by the united states because it provides cover for what is ultimately a political agenda now it's true that there has been an uptick in terrorist violence in yemen in august we've had for example more than double the monthly average of attacks by al-qaeda and in fact if you look at whom they've been targeting then the targeting has been very strongly against the southern forces
9:34 am
but nonetheless i think one does need to remain skeptical for example and shabwah that the no terrorist attacks at all by either isis or outsider so far this year so to claim that once fighting terrorism and shuffle and not just political opposition i think doesn't hold water or let's bring hasim into the discussion is this really about the u.a.e. plans as the. ledge and many others actually in yemen to separate the south and the north of yemen once again so that if they draw down the troops they still have a proxy who represent their interests the south. i think it boils down to one thing that the united arab emirates one interest and it's to do mean to protect and support the secessionists and to talk about extremism as
9:35 am
a kind of pretext we know that islam party is muslim brotherhood and is not classified as extremist by anyone other than the united arab emirates and the united arab emirates have actually classified qatar as an extremist a so do you believe that we don't of course when the president had to comes in public and condemn the united arab emirates he is not part of the party he is not part of those extremists as he said he represent the legitimacy he represents the probably the address for the money that the united arab emirates committed itself to bring him back to the sinai and now what happened in the past the united arab emirates even prevented him from visiting god and so with this is a well known story that the united arab emirates have its own ok we're only interested in what i know is to divide us now to break away from hunters for their own economic interests yes of course i think this is the ultimate for the united arab emirates and why would that be doesn't care or even doesn't give attention to
9:36 am
the how with the. why because for economic reasons and because they want to then for dubai ports etc so we know this is a well known story and so by dividing them into 2 yemen it would be easier for them to control it and to control this and this has been part of the all right let me let me bring on how they are into this again a divide the vienna yemen is ultimately where the resurgence of the estee forces s.t.c. forces are taking the country how do you respond to that. well 1st of all let's see how did the s.t.c. come about where these calls have came out how long have these calls been on on the ground yes the sea we got to go back track a little after 94 this was an all out occupation 2007 came out of southern movement after 2 and 2015 there was a sudden resistance to southern resistance gave birth to the southern forces and so
9:37 am
so the s.t.c. came about these separatists calls or the secessionists calls have been for over 2 decades this is not a recent through all but what you ate my 10 yes sir you did some of the so did the u.a.e. right and so to that events i'd like you to address the concern that ultimately the country be divided and one in which someone forces really are a front for you even interests there is not a negation the hudson pointed out in which the u.a.e. wants to maintain its interest in some of the ports of yemen to clean the toilets that's that is incorrect that is incorrect because the the southern transitional council has been very efficient working directly with the saudi led coalition as far as the. anti extremism fronts and the anti or with the fronts now these are both regional security matters these are not for south yemen alone this is not this is also for north yemen and for the entire
9:38 am
region there's over $25000.00 southern troops in the northern provinces or governorates that are fighting inside areas and other governor governor it's this is not just because they saudi led coalition couldn't find any genuine resistance on the ground besides the southern the southern forces this is what activated the entire so court trying to kill our transiting in. there are forces or i can see live versus shaking head i think you want to get in on this go ahead i think there's a lot of truth to what the s.t.c. spokesman says in terms of long term grievances that go back decades but these were reactivated by the formation of the southern transition council which was backed by the united arab emirates and we can see where this is heading it's
9:39 am
not good enough to say that the southerners support the coalition when they are calling back their troops from the very fronts that were just mentioned in the north of yemen to say come and defend us stop fighting that has these come and defend us against the northern us even yesterday there was a tweet by the deputy of the southern transitional council an even break where he mentioned all 7 if you include the culture governorates of the south and said we will not give an inch now that doesn't sound like coalition talk that sounds like us to purchase torn lizabeth if we connect the dots a little bit we have the announcement the u.a.e. you made the announcement was drawing down its troops kind of around the same time we had all those attacks going on u.a.e. and saudi oil interests in the gulf which were blamed on iran. and now we have this battle going on. in aden if you connect the dots do you read through this the
9:40 am
u.a.e. sending a message that he wants perhaps to be closer or not so much at least in conflict with iranian interests and just wants to carve out some interest for itself in the south of of yemen i think we should see this in the broader context which is that the united arab emirates has now for several years been recruiting troops across the south of yemen that were not directly answerable to the yemeni government of president heady so it's very clear that there was some purpose to these troops that may have extended beyond fighting terrorism after all the number of terrorist attacks in chaper as i mentioned it is very few and in fact when the major counterterrorism operations began. that only been one that year so far so it was less than one percent but the resources of yemen and a shop were are heavily based in oil and gas and so it's very difficult not to see
9:41 am
an ultimate commercial and political agenda behind this whilst saudi arabia been relatively silent on this so far do you think. is it just down to the fact that while they you know that they want to try and keep up with abi onboard in the coalition. what i think this is the only thing that i can think of right now because we know that handle a break be a dip. of the c.t.c. . actually threaten saudi arabia and he reminded them that the whole of the hotels have been fighting them for 4 years and he and his forces can do the same so by claiming that. this council is working in harmony with saudi arabia i think this is not substantiated with any any hard evidence because the statements coming from the council is actually under country or i don't know about how you know if you
9:42 am
didn't know exactly any ground here and you and i mention over the events going on in aden and the apparent crumbling of this coalition. well unfortunately the united nations has been doing nothing other than you know expressing its concerns about what is happening but on the ground i think the united arab emirate is just trying to spot and it's going to decide matters in probably in days to come but does it mean that america would would win the war in yemen the american would actually be defeated at the end of the day because the yemeni people would rise up against it and now we we can witness something new that for the 1st time that we see that the yemenis themselves are saying that i would not be is and you could find for so we've never hear such a thing before and i think this is a new development and the level of the conscious of the people and this could materialize to different things or translate into a probably a kind of action that would. united i want to take that point and that in
