4:07 am
there were 5 months in a world war one both sides were in trenches they were just mass slaughter across the landscape and were standing up sleeping they were in their own feces and their
4:08 am
dead comrades were sitting there no man's land they couldn't even get them and bring them back for burial. it was christmas eve and a german high command sent little christmas trees it was like a stage set all of a sudden across the german front you saw these little christmas trees lighting up and then the allies heard silent night being sung by the germans and started applauding. and then all of a son a couple of guys on both sides get out of the trenches and start walking toward each other. and expected any moment to pull back with the machine gun zipping up and. and within 2 hours we were walking about and often talking and it was nothing like. hundreds get out of the trenches then thousands get out of the trenches and they embraced each other $100000.00 men. oh man stands phosphoric see as graeme attack that he was smoking and talking shaking hands exchanging
4:09 am
names addresses after the war wrecked one another. about it back in your trenches you know jumped the generals b. i must've seen it and got a bit suspicious so what they did they gave all of those for about 3 of guns behind us to file an offer shish so i had their revolvers but the japanese you know let's not stop in the water again or we were christian i'm told. this was a war to end all wars. this was a war to make the world safe for democracy. at least $21000.00 new
4:10 am
millionaires were made in the u.s. with billions and billions of dollars would be piled up a few. innovation makers ship builders meat packers. and let us not forget the bankers who finance the great war. to turn blood into gold. and their profits were secret as they were. all of them are looking ahead to war. i stand before you tonight in my red star chiffon evening god. based soft lemaitre off my fair haired gen.
4:11 am
with. this extraordinary deal between the united kingdom and saudi arabia in which ronald reagan wanted to sell the saudis billions and billions dollars worth of equipment but these reading stopped it and congress wouldn't approve it because they feared the saudi would strengthen israel. handed the deal with are effectively to his political soulmate margaret sacha un soon not. very effective. when we stumbled on the saudi arms. deal we really started to stumble on a central feature of british politics over the last 30 years.
4:12 am
has been at the heart of many of the great. i was always pleased to see him when i was prime minister because he brought me extraordinary insight. she considers saudi arabia as a strong friend and would be willing to support taking them with whatever the kingdom needs and the discussion from there on everything else was going to get he explained to mr thatcher this was a deal with saudi arabia and therefore things were done differently. they wanted $43000000000.00 worth of weaponry that was $6000000000.00 in commission. the false majority what most people understand is bribes.
4:13 am
we'll continue to work together against the terrorists who threaten the way of life pacifists. one day i thought right and it was a man to look at it coming i'm actually he said i've been working for a travel company and we had a kind of slush fund we used to distribute to saudis and other arabs when they came to britain for be all to help the path of arms deals. and he told the sex workers stories that when the saudi military officers would come along he would present them with canteens of cut through that was something that they light another thing they liked was girls so he would take about the town and get them girls. to be honest it seemed like quite small beer payments made some of them from rather on as manic activities and gaming chips to talks about cooldowns that sort of thing there's only 2 things that count in business my friend
4:14 am
money and sex the rest you can write as much as you like is absolute garbage you can measure weapon beautiful the president's secretary. because they're more destructive you just think it is something you want to have you're talking about. and that is sometimes old as you need. to use and i scored a just see cold war kids because of the specialties of the chief of staff of the army like blowing bits of them. we had their secretary of the embassy come and review the photos she said i won this one i won this one i win this one i win this one i had the girls i arrived one day before and i said you're old and we will be paid handsomely for this but do me a favor if you get any people talk to this relevant please bring your cross because
4:15 am
i could use it in for you interesting information i will give another 2000 euro bonus so with 60 grand i signed the contract worth 3000000 so it wasn't a deal. m m i phone rang again. it was another whistle and he said you have no idea what it is that you're getting into here. and he said this slush fund is much much bigger than you realize our job was to look after the really high level people those who used to come to england who were being bribed essentially be a people of the level of the head of the saudi air force who was a royal prince. we would fly the 2 of us angelica and they would buy cars dresses that wasn't shopping like you would i would think in the end when they gather together all the shopping we would charter an entire jumbo jet to fly it all back to saudi arabia it was in the attempt to try and trace through the bank accounts who the ultimate beneficiaries are that the case became really very serious as the
4:16 am
trail appeared to lead to wards senior members of society royal family. the most outrageous example was that maybe 80 i don't order to go the way with prince bandar at one point i made him a present of a huge commercial airliner all of his various which he promptly have painted in the gray and silver colors of the dallas cowboys and rays favorites a very good team i used to fly around in that quite cheerfully. the case centered on establishing the ultimate beneficiary of exceptionally large amounts of money paid by big sharing space for consultancy services well. there's evidence that mark fashion of this is that your son got 12000000 in cash for his work as a fixer. this
4:17 am
is part of the. this is who. don't want it it's a really beautiful weapon it's also made if you want to sell on the market you're looking probably about 3500 euros and why you keep it in the house because it was all her. and you can do that legally. you know but no more words you care as long as it's in the house. it is oh sure the shot of the neighbor . i got nothing is money i don't mind paying bribes to politicians it's part of the deal the thing about politicians is that they're very much like prostitutes but only more expensive. polities is it dated by the whims of the arms industry politicians are nothing more than sales reps by their friends that have as
4:18 am
much power as a middle ranking executive and want to martin ident of the day they do with the tolls. when an executive goes to bribe a foreign official he says to himself look i've taken a lot of risk to take this $5000000.00 that i'm paying to the prime minister of x.y.z. who makes an arrangement with prime minister of x.y.z. . i'll hand over the 5000000 but you take half of that 5000000 and you send it to the following bank account and switzerland will share in this for. the 1st time an executive does that and he collects $2500000.00 he says wow this is a good business to be and within moments of that realisation he is no no longer in the business of selling airplanes he's in the business of selling bribes and he is now scouring the world for somebody to find to bribe.
4:19 am
we. had a few. who can. chew through it. i. had to do. them somewhat it's from. this out example. i played. each child to clean. each castle city. on foot by. 8 seasons. with. a megaphone running jep. this was somebody who said you have no idea what you're getting into he said this whole be a thing is much much bigger it goes right to the very top what he had was something
4:20 am
that you never see as a journalist swiss bank records of international cover payments going all over the world he showed me how be a set of a whole system with lloyds bank under which they channeled secret payments into a british virgin islands offshore company called red diamond from red diamond the money went into this guy's swiss bank account and he then used it to distribute to the local politicians taking a big chunk of himself of course we don't i can assure you we don't we and i believe most companies all to the business of late payments as you said yes lots of supply they do employees of government it is just all the way business is done. we were actually able to publish what was the most dangerous story that prince bandar had been given not just the plane but over the years a total of 1000000000 pounds we did not invent. corruption
4:21 am
i mean i doubt many would have been and they had hanky panky and they had to go down to edit so i mean this is this is what made sure i show you true prince of state run and a friend. how do you agree. of course none of us are greedy it's only the other fellow who's greed. this the world runs on individuals pursuing their self-interest. all those people who believe that greed violence etc these primal so-called primal instincts other religions things and everything else is a social construction they've lost their mind and for the last 50 years at least policy has been made based on the assumption of greed and it's ruined the world. patch unites believe there is new nature of society so you have to nurture
4:22 am
individual is i don't accept that at all i think there are very many good public policy initiatives for creating societies. and the beirut there saying hello to you . is a comment isn't a k $47.00 kalashnikov. a society that decides that the bulk of its budget is going to go to arms manufacturing building of a military eccentric this is made a moral decision that militarism is more important then the creation of wellbeing for the population. this is not the world i want to live in i want to live in the real world and the real world is peopled by real emotions including love and generosity. my god if you want is freedom the freedom of human beings of individuals to pursue their own say is i think what they term freedom means is economic license and economic license and
4:23 am
those who control property and those who control capital has in fact been a threat not only to equality but a threat to the freedom of peoples all over the world and not only in europe and the united states but nafta in asia and in latin america i want you to name me any society in which you have any large measure that freedom for capitalism and free enterprise has not been the predominant mechanism of the free enterprise system has spread through the force of all and send those on through wielded by governments that was government intervention under the name of the free enterprise system but a government intervention which destroyed the cretin's of many people not least of which are the people of chile. from the 1950 s. all the way through the 1970 s. the cia and the u.s. military were engaged in covert actions throughout central med america throughout
4:24 am
africa really throughout the world where they were assassinating populist leaders they were backing up right wing military juntas funding and arming death squads like the contras in nicaragua or battalion $316.00 and under us and i and there were these spate of assassinations across the globe. in countries like mine people have been killed to be quiet to know that any day any time you're going to be killed you don't know how but it's coming. we were fighting in early garc and still we are fighting you know body guards mines that don't want to work going inclusiveness they just take a. the action is not only about taking from india but taking from the people. even to dreams take on the next. the last half of what is called the cold war i
4:25 am
don't know it to be a very hard war for many parts of the world. from the standpoint of want it by them and cause the victims or what i would think of really as of people trying to make their own futures. there was an attempt in the global south to create an alternative imagination for people. but in the early 1970 s. this attempt was destroyed and it was stopped through a real genuine attempt by the global lot to take over the institutions of the world including the world bank the i.m.f. . souls not simply that the bible of the south was incapable of carrying forward their dreams. it was a very strong with these dreams were assassinated. it's not just the one off killings
4:26 am
the coir the cool there. it's the entire dream that had to be killed. to be sure to do less than to be a book or not but aren't going to or much else. to live by a symbol or any mere merely or those who are a loser will be because on the the end. looksee you enjoyed was he not one to us got a person on the most of a me by his. when i said kind of to his years. in holy you know men t. you who leave your god to what are the salmon. you know be your command be. nice and fit you have them and eat.

4:28 am
in a world where journalism as an industry is changing we have al-jazeera are fortunate to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that passenger drive and present the stories in a way that is important to our viewers. everyone has a story worth hearing to. uncover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent that's why i joined al-jazeera . on counting the cost especially on investing in a burgeoning dockets from the doha 4 of right here in castle how foreign direct investment just reshaping the global economy that means for the future of it and the globalization of populist sense of. counting the cost of al-jazeera. culture a down's thrives here every day generations of tibetans continue to brace and maintain that cultural heritage it's a reminder of who they are a whether. this is
4:29 am
a suburb of the idiot capital new delhi tibet so be refugees here since 964 buttons here have been defined as migrants are not refugees because india hasn't signed up to the 1951 the un convention on refugees so tibetans here have been able to access the indian welfare system so they become self-sufficient setting up a business says i'm looking for work independently but for some it's not enough. children born into a city of trash discovered the beauty of music and i'm pleased to play since. when a chance to play for the world around 10 man reality into a dream. land fill harmonic and witness documentary on disney.
4:30 am
hello i'm daryn jordan and with a quick reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera saudi arabia sentence 5 people to death for the murder of the journalist. but 3 of the most senior suspects were cleared a u.n. expert on extrajudicial killings has described the saudi investigation and trial as a mockery of justice what we. whitewash than. just you. and. that gentle. and just. not being it didn't mean stab them that maybe also people want to. hear it has not been. the chief executive of u.s.
4:31 am
plane make a boeing has been fired dennis mullen birds departure is seen as an effort to restore confidence of the 2 fatal crashes of its 737 months last week production of the new plane was suspended wasn't jordan has more now from washington d.c. . this is a situation where our the company not only had been losing billions of dollars at least $8000000000.00 because of the problems with the $737.00 max's operation software as well as with that pilot training program but also because government regulators did not feel that boeing was doing enough in order to satisfy their demand to make certain that this jet is airworthy and could be put back into service india's main opposition congress party has led a massive rallies for the capital new delhi against a controversial citizenship law says the legislation is and it was given undermines india's constitution at least 8 civilians have been killed by a car bomb in northern syria have an inside look which is controlled by turkish
4:32 am
backed fighters took the town from kurdish forces in october has been no claim of responsibility and arrest warrant has been issued in the ivory coast for a candidate in next year's elections former rebel leader was due to return home to start his campaign but his flight was diverted to ghana and astronomers in the u.k. have discovered 6 new planets outside our solar system the planet zog stream the hot sun to say they could hold the key to finding out how our own earth was formed those were the headlines and news continues on al-jazeera after shadow world stage we've done so much by fact. joint hearings of the house elect committee to investigate covert arms transaction with iran. and the select committee on
4:33 am
secret military assistance to iran in the nicaraguan opposition will come to order congress began to address what they perceive to be an insanely out of control series of covert actions with little to no congressional oversight we have been supplying lethal weapons to terrorist nation involving the us government in military activity in direct contravention of the law and lying to the congress now i believe that democracy cannot survive that kind of abuse. and people like dick cheney and donald rumsfeld who are relatively new to government at the time did not like when congress said we need to step in and confront the national security state and what's become a very out of control kill program cheney then went on during the reagan years in the eighty's to serve in congress and when the iran contra scandal broke out into the open. cheney did not like congress being involved with anything that the executive branch was doing. and you had this is utter scandal that emanated from
4:34 am
the highest echelons of power and the reagan administration was acting as though it had nothing to do with it i've told you all that i know and you know the truth of the matter is for quite some long time all that you knew was when i told you. to listen. to. our witnesses morning is mr robert mcfarlane the former national security adviser to the president. mr mcfarlane will you welcome you to the committee and we look forward to your testimony. mr mcfarlane. did you have any discussion about the possibility. of in effect farming out the whole contra support operations in nicaragua to another country which we'll call a country run yes that's correct and did you in fact succeed in
4:35 am
obtaining money from another country. which will cause a country to. that's correct. i had the practice meeting periodic lee with the official from country to about assistance we could provide some cases arms sales. they intended to provide a contribution of a $1000000.00 per months to the contras through the end of the year. you have no problems working with the cia we have no problem working with the united states government and unless the cia does not work for the government then i think we have a bigger problem there have been occasions when some americans are question that you know well thank heavens those occasion was not in connection with saudi arabia .
4:36 am
i think that there was a substantial shadow government trying to run for if they actually managed a. these events have been characterized by some pretty strong statements we've heard talk of a grave constitutional crisis and even been treated to talk about a coup in the white house not only does cheney sort of defend iran contra but he argues that iran contra is actually a model for how the u.s. should be conducting its national security policy he is a radical subscriber to this notion of the unitary executive effectively what you're doing is saying on certain parts of american policy we don't have a democracy we have a dictatorship. as a matter of fact i was. very definitely involved in the decisions about support to the freedom fighters my idea to begin with. in my opinion there is no justification
4:37 am
for further restrictions on the power and flexibility of future presidents. the national security lead today is mostly composed of people who hit the revolving door multiple times during their long nomination of richard b. cheney to be secretary of the friends is they make a name for themselves in the private industry and then they come into the get. this revolving door keeps the national security leak very small and very wealthy. and increasing its wealth as it goes up the chain to the extent that then when you get to the top as cheney did then you can become a member of the plutocracy that runs the country to this is impressive crowd the haves and the have more. money commissioned a study by halliburton to find out how much more of the defense department could be privatized proud to serve our troops palaver in which he laid to get this
4:38 am
$1000000.00 contract and of course returned a verdict that oh mr secretary lots more of it can be privatized. dick cheney leaves the defense department and goes and heads halliburton himself and he spends the entire 990 s. building up the how important war empire well if we're going to talk about star wars we might as well invite darth vader i. am. happy to accept. when he comes back into power as vice president and then they start hiring how liberating to you know in advance even if u.s. troops going into iraq. snellen equipment was being deployed to the gulf it's hard to look at this and not say these guys had a very long term plan for how they were going to increase the powerful infrastructure of private companies. what we've essentially done is to
4:39 am
create a network of corporations that have the firepower of small nation states that could you know overthrow some small governments around the world. in essence we in the united states have privatized the ultimate public function war. going on and not want to get on the market right now even obama's of got a time with them like food. you know munitions as good as going through known so by the things you know to cut. and you can treat.
4:40 am
in iraq the f. 16 is an f. 18 s we're firing 6000000 dollars within seconds coming back really army and going up again. there's no hope of any harm because there's always a small cobble of people for wars really really good business. it doesn't matter that we're losing the war in afghanistan albertan could care less it's good for them good for profit. you know then. i don't know it's under the. bed like i was told it is really. i know there are you know.
4:41 am
it would be the bit. where we've undergone a corporate coup d'etat in slow motion. 35000 lobbyists in washington they write the legislation they write the bills. all it takes is one phone call from somebody on the hill to someone in the pentagon saying hey turn on the dogs the hills out to get our program the guys in the senate are on board we need you to turn on the gucci shoes guys to straighten this thing out the guy's been the lobbyist. and what this does is just lock the system up and that's the whole name of the game it's it's called political engineering and i'm like political science
4:42 am
political engineering is real. one of the most important things dunder stand is essentially creates what we call a self licking ice cream cone and it's like a perpetual motion machine for getting ever increasing defense budgets the way we do it is by downplaying the future consequences to start a new weapon we over promises performance under promise it's cost we then systematically spread dollars jobs and profits to as many congressional districts as quickly as possible so that everybody has skin in the game. the people who are invested in this state or people like the largest defense contractor in the. world lockheed martin they will die before they see it done no one even going to change the world. we're probably already working.
4:43 am
look at martin basically just similar to put some distance tentacles you know in all branches of the government and to the home. and that's it they make them if you look like a bunch of schoolboys fiscal year 9992.3 trillion missing fiscal year 2001 point one trillion missing the pentagon has claimed year after year that the reason it can't account for the money is because its computers don't communicate with each other $1.00 trillion $1.00 bills stacked high would reach nearly 68000 miles into space one 3rd of the way to the moon. i got a phone call from the f.b.i. saying that i was a target of a death threat. and that's what happens when you go against the big boys who has the contracts today to make those systems communicate with each other and how much
4:44 am
have the taxpayers paid for them there are times that corporations do things they should not do in which case they tend to be suspended for some period there are times then that corporations can get out of the penalty box it is you know any was never in the penalty box if you could proceed to my 2nd question please the 2nd question. i forgot what the 2nd question was. in the vigil was operating in the shadows and never having their names called are able to leverage the power of the military and the foreign policy apparatus for their own personal pick uni ery in its. what now who's the enemy how do we justify all the stang sold this place is all this bullshit what better
4:45 am
our new enemy and i prefer circle invisible enemy called the war on terror. he can bring to mind a celeb yellow mutinies that's our unity back home by the end of the city tells me . that i have on but i don't know but he vicky years he married only to be dorian out of the many guys who are no mental for the new or that the analysis. which you see mean this is tony dances and similarly i'm
4:46 am
going to see mean you know better you don't know either foot on the left. but i have a nary doubt. yes it will be very dark even they let our money earned to that extent i am in a fabulous i don't mother this delusion i must see what i want to see most of us in our news in assist those funny. is a see in move from the mental demand your home on a c.c. your. get to the we and i nak bendin she on the get a 2nd a bit earlier her lack. of i think of the most basic level when we realize how we've entered into. a
4:47 am
permanent state of war like what often proponents of. counter terrorism on a global scale think of as a long war but a war without end something like that. and i think that what we've accepted is a political regime that is sustained by fear is a very old very old political tactic i mean machiavelli asin the prince is it better for the prince to be feared or loved and his conclusion is because the locus of fear the the source of fear resides in him in the prince it can be constant for his rule whereas the locus of love resides in the people it's in their power and so for them could be tossed in a long lasting means so much already opens
4:48 am
a question that he probably doesn't provide us the answer with what would it mean to have our social arrangement like the basis of our social choices. be founded on love. i don't think one has to justify the cost and nature of the national security state one just has to keep the people fearful enough to support it but what i want to bring to your attention today is the potentially much more sinister nexus between iraq and the 0 kind of terrorist network. every word in that speech was gone over by the director of central intelligence and his deputy director after so it was nothing that i made up it was nothing that i stuck in there and in fact some people tried to stick extra things in there that the intelligence community wouldn't verify with multi-sourcing and i said no powell grabbed me physically which was unlike him and drug me into a space at the cia at langley and said throw all the material in my
4:49 am
presentation about terrorism out cut it out out this amount this is just within an hour george tenet the director of central intelligence made a spectacular bombshell presentation we have just learned from a high level al qaida operative under interrogation about significant contacts between baghdad smoove our ot and al qaeda. this was devastating. here's the director of central intelligence telling the secretary of state that he has interrogated evidence well the secretary turned to me and said put it back in. al qaeda continues to have a deep interest in acquiring weapons of mass destruction as with the story as the kawi in his network i can trace the story of a senior terrorist operative telling how iraq provided training in these weapons to al qaeda later i learned that that was shake out libby that had to happen just
4:50 am
instantly happened it happened months before that he been water boarded in egypt 20 did this no u.s. personnel were present and he had recanted within a couple of weeks and we never were told about that every statement i make today is backed up by sources solid sources these are not assertions we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence we were indisputable we were lied to. at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq to free and some people and to defend the world from grave danger is called rove famously said to this reporter you know you guys are reality based communities we make reality by the time you figured out you know what's wrong with our reality we've moved on the creation of another reality digital cell or cause to come into the possession of saddam hussein weapons of mass
4:51 am
