3:30 pm
the light at the height of the storm water was still high, and would it be the above my head? this is an important part of the world. people pay attention to what we're going to do is very good at bringing the news to the world from here. ah, ah, you want, you know, i'm just there with me. so roman reminder of all new stories of going to sounds. capital remains on the edge of funerals or help for some of the victims of thursdays boma tank. so the apples on still science, it was behind the blast that killed more than 100 people at one of the gates of cobbled international airport. charles stratford has the latest, was incredible, fraught and a disturbing few days. it's been since the taliban took over, gobbled on august. the 15th tens of thousands of people have been evacuated out of the country and many who wanted to leave still remain. we understand having spoken
3:31 pm
to people around the airport this morning that the tale bomb had pushed the remaining people who were there back around 500 meters from beyond the perimeter of the airport. now the tax also killed 30 members of the us military president joe biden. putney as about to strike back against those responsible and he's promised the evacuation operation will continue despite the violence. a van a court has convicted the former austria and vice chancellor hines. christian saw her, a corruption that he received a 15 month suspended sentence. the gold said he accepted $14000.00 to change laws to favor a private hospital. the scandal was known as a beef. the gate star was filled in the spanish resort island, over beaten, offering favors to a woman posing as the niece of a russian ali gong. dozens of school children have been freed in northern nigeria and to be abducted from an islamic school 3 months ago. 136 students were taken by
3:32 pm
gunman from the town of beginner is not exactly how many have been released, but it's reported that at least 6 students died. falling timothy the zealand is extending its nationwide locked arms will choose day after reporting 17 new cases. a cave at 19 most in the largest city of oakland that will stay locked down for another 2 weeks. the rest of the country will ease restrictions slightly from choose day. a crucial confident vote in peruse, new cabinet, has been pushed back by day, is being seen of president petro castillo, is biggest test since he took office last month, around 2000 and pro and anti castillo demonstrators gathered outside congress. and please had to step in and separate the being full of stories on the website itself . is there a dot com and bank with the news are less than half now's time, but we return to shadow hills here on out in the joint hearings of the
3:33 pm
house, select committee to investigate covert arms transaction with iran and the select committee on secret military assistance to iran and 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 terrorists nations involving the u. s. government in military activities, in direct contravention of the law and lying to the congress. now i believe that democracy cannot revive 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 had, we need to step in and confront the national security state. and what's become
3:34 pm
a very out of control pill program cheney that 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, chaney did not like congress being involved with anything that the executive branch was doing. and you had the 2 others handle that emanated from 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 what i told you. it was our witness this morning is mister robert mcfarland, the former national security adviser to the president. mr mcfarland, where you welcome you to the committee and we look forward to your testimony. mr. mccall, and did you have any discussion about the possibility of
3:35 pm
an effect farming out the whole contra support operations in nicaragua to another country which will cor country one? yes, that's correct. and did you, in fact, succeed in obtaining money from another country, which will cor country toe the that's correct. ah, i had the practice of meeting periodically with the official from country to about assistance. we could provide some cases arm sales and he intended to provide a contribution of a $1000000.00 per month to the contras through the end of the year. you have no problems working with us. we have no problem working with the united states government. and unless it does not work for the government, then i think we have
3:36 pm
a big problem. there have been a case when some americans question that a, you know, one thing having both the case was not in connection with the i think that there was a substantial shadow government trying to run foreign affairs united states. 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 and winehouse, not only does cheney sort of defend around contrast, 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
3:37 pm
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 for further restrictions on the power and flexibility. a future presidents ah, the national security li today is mostly composed of people who hit the revolving door multiple times during their law. and i'm an agent of richard b chaney. to be secretary of defense is confirmed. they make a name for themselves in the private industry, and then they come into the go. this revolving door keeps the national security late, 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 impress the crowd,
3:38 pm
the haves and the have morse cheney commission, to study by halliburton to find out how much more of the defense department can be privatized. halliburton, proud to serve our troops. elberton was elated to get this $1000000.00 contract and of course returned a verdict. oh mister secretary, lots more of it can be privatized. um, dick training leaves the defense department and goes and has halliburton himself. and he spent the entire 1900 ninety's, building up the halliburton war empire. well, if we're going to talk about star wars, we might as well invite darth vader. happy to accept it. then he comes back into power as vice president. and then they start hiring halliburton to, you know, in advance, even of us troops going into iraq,
3:39 pm
halliburton, personnel and equipment was being deployed to the gulf. it's hard to, 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 create a network of corporations that have the fire power of small nation states that could, you know, over throw some small governments around the world. in athens, we, in the united states, have privatize the ultimate public function. ward fine you know, bombs got a time limit like food emissions to us, you know, so by that through
3:40 pm
the in iraq, the f sixteens and as a teens were firing 6000000 dollars within seconds, coming back re army and going up again. ah, there is no hope of ending war because there's always a small cobble of people for or is really, really good business. it doesn't matter that we're losing the war and canister, albert careless. good for them. good for profit, me
3:41 pm
the well we've undergone a corporate qu data in slow motion, co quote john austin, fall 35000 lobbyist, washington. they write the legislation, they write the bills. all it takes is one phone call from somebody on the hill to
3:42 pm
someone in the pentagon saying, hey, turn on the dogs, the hills out to get our program. the guys in the center on on board, we need you to turn on the gucci. shoot guys to straighten this thing out the gucci . she guys being the lobbyist. and what this does is just lock the system up and that's the whole name. and again, it's called political engineering. and unlike political science, political engineering is real. me one of the most important things to understand it essentially creates what we call a self like in ice cream cone. ready and it's like a perpetual motion machine. forgetting ever increasing defense by just the way we do it is by downplaying the future consequences to start a new weapon, we over promises performance under promise its cost. we then systematically spread dollars, jobs, and profit to as many congressional districts as quickly as possible so that everybody has skin in the game. ah, the people who are invested in this state for people like the largest defense
3:43 pm
contractor in the world, lockheed martin. they will die before they see it go while going to change the world. next. we're probably already working on it. a good margin basically just simulation last suppliers and listeners, tentacles, you know, in all branches of the government. and then the helman. and that's great that make them feel like a bunch of schoolboys fiscal year. 19992.3 trillion missing fiscal year, 2001 point, one trillion missing the pentagon is claimed year of the year that the reason they can't account for the money is because it's computers don't communicate with each other. one trillion $1.00 bill that high would reach nearly 68000 miles into space . one 3rd of the way to the moon. i got a phone call from the f
3:44 pm
b. i thing that i was a target of a death rick. and that's what happens when you go against the big boys who had the contract today to make those systems communicate with each other and how much have the tax payers 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 the corporations can get out of the penalty box. only was never in the penalty box. if you could proceed to my 2nd question, please, the. the 2nd question i forgotten what the 2nd question was. individuals 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
3:45 pm
own personal pecuniary ins was now who's the enemy? how do we justify all the standings oldest planes? all this bullshit. what better new enemy done, and i pathetic go. invisible enemy called the war on terror. the ring to madison then yellow mysteries. so you see that by the i don't know, see those who need to
3:46 pm
know, but she didn't seem buddy victoria, not too many will know middle. so unless you see really she's total need insistence. majority of edison in the, you know, either for on the money in front of my, my few or with the service and i live in the say those from the use for lemon. morrison, to get the we and i feel that are going to be the
3:47 pm
rodeo. ah, i think of the most basic level when we realize how we've entered into a permanent state of war like when often proponents of counter terrorism on a global scale. think of as a long war, but a war without, in something like that. and i think that what we've accepted is a political regime that is sustained by fear is a very old. it's a very old political tactic. i mean, nike really us in the prince is a better for the prints to be feared or loved. and his conclusion is because the locus of fear, the, the source of fear resides in him,
3:48 pm
in the prince. it can be constant for his role, whereas the locus of love resides in the people. it's in their power, and so for them could be constant and long lasting mean. so marquee valley already opens a question that he, 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 in nature or 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 kite a terrorist network. every word in that speech was gone over by the director of central intelligence and his deputy director after we slept. so is nothing that i made up, it was nothing that i stuck in there, and in fact,
3:49 pm
some people tried to stick extra things in there that the intelligence community wouldn't verify with multi sourcing. and i said no, active rec, powell grab me physically, which was unlike him and drug me into a space at the ca, langley, and said, throw all the material in my presentation about terrorism out, cut it out out this amount. this is just within an hour, george tenet's, the director of central intelligence, may a spectacular bomb shell presentation. we have just learned from a high level al qaeda operative under interrogation about significant context between baghdad, smoke of iraq 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 hawkeye, to continue to have
3:50 pm
a deep interest in inquiring weapons of mass destruction. as with the story of the car, we and 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 shakeout. libby that it happened just instantly happened. it happened months before that he'd been water boarded in egypt . 20 did this, no us 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. what we're giving you, our facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. we were indisputably, we were lined to at this hour. american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq, to free to people, and to defend the world from great danger. as karl rove famously said to this
3:51 pm
reporter, you guys a reality based communities. we make reality by the time you figured out what's wrong with our reality, we've moved the creation of another reality. did you sell or cause to come into the possession of saddam hussein, weapons of mass destruction? did the united states yell to him? absolutely not. the run around such a scale, i was only run inside and i went down to the back when i was actually give him a gas kit. and so let me take the train back. right all the way up to tear on the carriages were crammed with iran and soldiers had been ghast. someone just coughing, wretched, and a one man was reading a koran, put a handkerchief white glove on his lips, gradually to car. those became permeated with a sort of $36.00 smell, and i realize it was the smell of gas that they were coughing up from the lungs. i was going wrong, the carlos windows on the night to try and clean the train out of the smell of
3:52 pm
obviously, of chemical water i. after 2003, i was been attacked on radio shows, especially from america complaining about the american event. you pro saddam and i said, excuse me. i was on the train of iranians, gassed by the rockies. and the chemical components came from the united states. at the very time the, your rumsfeld was meeting for doubt. you were meeting with saddam hussein. i think we have some video that of that meeting. tell me what was going on during this is where did you get this video from the iraqi? tell him this is from iraqi television. when did they give it to you recently, or then we've dug this out of the sea and in library, i see. isn't that interesting? there i am with the
3:53 pm
our war on terror begins without data. but it does not in this war on terror is irrational. it's like saying a war and when the serious pro office launched his investigation into the crimes that we were uncovering, it turned out that many of these arms deals had been forced through by tony blair personally. he's a dedicated arm salesman. and once you start a war. ready you open a kind of pandora's box, you don't control and it controls you
3:54 pm
today. good dennis and mad did is the bad better is that those in yemen who the united states names to be attract the good terrorist and those who are inferior. the joke here is we've been there before. i mean, if you consider the amount of time story, there was nothing to do. if i say that the saudis are giving money to groups that i insidious not only a little, but also the i s i s. people who say you want to come to me,
3:55 pm
the medical side really put 1000000 dollars each to give them arms training equipment. we are the ones who are clear on those people to go. we're a new piece, that's what we want. freedom and the doctrine that has endured from bush to obama is that the world is a battlefield. and that the united states has the right to go into any country around the world to conduct what they call kinetic operations, legal operations, regardless of what international law says. if you're a small state, like we were for 150 years, in essence, decently, spain, france, angling, and even russia, you gotta be exquisitely good diplomacy. you've got to be able to talk yourself out of lots of things and make deals, and compromises and so forth. but if you're the world's henchmen, you don't deal with anybody, you smack your military and you smack up the
3:56 pm
