two russian cosmonauts and an american astronaut remain stuck on the international space station as a technical problem prevents this whole new spacecraft bound for earth. the late. reports of thousands of cia trained in afghanistan since operating in pakistan raised concerns over what's to happen after the u.s. pulls out of the region and who will control the elite force will be leaving behind . a war of words between the american a rainy and president. tells the u.n. general assembly that most people in the world believe the united states was behind the nine eleven attacks comments from that coming up live this hour.
5:01 pm
carlos is our team from moscow is what i am here now i'm kevin zero in with the top stories for the first time ever a soyuz spacecraft has failed to undock from the international space station leaving the crew temporarily stuck in orbit two russian cosmonauts and a nasa astronaut were ready to return to worth when signal technical problems and telling of a cause got the latest for. a difficult maneuver and not a good time to hear warning bells after spending nearly six months in orbit three of the current guy says crew get held up trying to head for home well trying to undo the automatic lock between the space station and sees landing munjal feel to open. an alarm went off aboard the spacecraft seeing that the airlock isn't properly secured and the vehicle isn't isolated from the vacuum of space after
5:02 pm
a thorough inspection it turned out this was a false alarm and this is no ordinary jammed lock this journey home takes intense preparation. they haven't slept for a day preparing for the landing and checking the spacecraft costumes and testing the air tightness and now they have to go through that all over again which means another day of no wrist it's very tough but they're well trained with. safety is the watchword here mission control center needs to be one hundred percent certain before giving the next green light we could have proceeded with the undocking and landing today but we decided to do it tomorrow just to be sure there is nothing wrong with either the station or the landing module. now the problem is solved nothing should stop say you spacecraft from successfully detaching his plans in case of an emergency in case the spacecraft fails to undock again there's always a back up module that they can he is too far i back to earth and there's always
5:03 pm
plan c. as then by say you spacecraft that's ready to take off for the isis and bring the stranded crew safely back to earth now dealing with r.t. kind of moscow region. elite anti terror kill team is run by america's intelligence agency of no take in the u.s. led war beyond afghanistan those are the claims of a new book called obama's wars by veteran journalist bob woodward now in it he reveals that a secret army of some three thousand afghan fighters said to her on the tele. of now infiltrated pakistan but after his fall asleep reports the fact of the cia as we manage a covert afghan squad was never a well guarded secret. u.s. officials for some time have been talking quite openly and brazenly about secret armies operating here although these officials speak anonymously some of them of gone so far as to actually brag and boast that some of their most effective counterinsurgency efforts have been thanks to groups like this now in
5:04 pm
a book that will be released in next week and titled obama's win was written by bob woodward he suggests that there are as many as three thousand afghan assassins who have been directly trained and funded by the cia to carry out can design operations in which they capture and kill al qaeda and taliban fighters and leaders here in afghanistan and also across the border in pakistan and this is something that is not going to go down well with his number but there has always been a raid light on u.s. forces operating here in afghanistan not to cross over into pakistan and this coupled with the fact that the u.s. has been firing missiles from a manned us a drone aircraft or to rate higher than the bush administration does point to an enlargement of the u.s. president barack obama's closer to when the region that is the million dollar question what does happen to these heavily trained heavily equipped and heavily funded groups if and when the u. is loses interest in this part of the world this is
5:05 pm
a decades old strategy we're not talking about something new we're talking about a system when for whatever reasons it is not politically or economically or militarily viable to the united states to take some kind of direct action it employs proxy armies the same thing or a very similar type of operation happened in iraq against al qaida there we saw the same thing happening back in the one nine hundred eighty s. here in afghanistan when the cia sponsored which if you didn't take on the soviets and very often people refer to this as the salvador option a throwback to the seventy's and eighty's when the u.s. sponsored diffs squads in countries in latin america to take on its enemies. paul asli reporting there from afghanistan's capital kabul more thoughts are from calais she spoke to see from a think tank project for pakistan in the twenty first century he says the death squads may become a major source of problems for both afghanistan and pakistan. the united states
5:06 pm
continues to rely on warlords in afghanistan when when i heard about the this mercenary force of three thousand well trained up guns i still there's one part of the story that is still missing and that is where these three thousand of gun volunteers for this mercenary army came from and i have no doubt about the answer to this question and that is they came and they were recommended by some of the warlords of course as you know there is a there's a problem of loyalty and enough to understand you cannot recruit people without knowing exactly where they coming from so most of this three thousand force must have come recommended from some of the warlords and these warlords are really milking the u.s. government and the u.s. military they're making a lot of money and of course we all know the story of what happened in tora bora back in november and in december two thousand and one when it was some of bin laden actually from tora bora thanks actually to the very allies of the u.s. military the of gone warlords who some of them according to reports took money and let many almost one thousand al qaeda fighters really skate so you really these are
5:07 pm
really shifting loyalties and these three thousand fighters must have come from somewhere and they must have loyalty is to some warlords inside have got to stand and this confirms actually that we will have problems about these militias and these mercenaries getting out of control at some point in the future. so it's. twenty four seven from moscow just like you know coming up i don't but later in the program. in the subway more moscow teams clubs want to journey that explores the ethnic diversity of the sakhalin region in russia's far east ruffle of troubles again showing the joy that it's coming up in a couple of minutes time. well you know u.s. president barack obama's sharply criticize the iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad for telling the u.n. general assembly that he believes america was behind the nine eleven terror attacks the claims that led to war by u.s. and western nations who have. the iranian president said his country is open to
5:08 pm
negotiations on its nuclear program as early as next month it's got the latest new york post wanted to see a check of its why again now the u.s. was swift last night in its response to present imagery and judge remarks about what was said in this war of words take a servant. well you know kevin i have to point out that broke obama did take an extra day to figure out a response to mahmoud ahmadinejad's comments at the united nations general assembly basically barack obama said that the statements that ahmadinejad had made saying back to most of the world believes that americans were behind the events of september eleventh are completely and just hateful and offensive take a listen to his explanation for these comments it was offensive it was hateful. and particularly for him to make the statement here in manhattan just. just a little north of ground zero. where families lost their loved ones
5:09 pm
people of all faiths all ethnicities. who you know see this as the seminal tragedy. of this generation for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable. well you know kevin mahmoud ahmadinejad really didn't fail to take his time addressing the united nations general assembly he spoke for as much as forty minutes instead of the allotted fifteen and he really made sure to attack the united states as much as he could he talked apart from these comments about september eleventh he talked about how the united states is trying to continuing to trying to dominate the world dominating powers and really accusing the u. west of continuing this sort of aggression and trying to spread its hand throughout the world but these are these comments of september eleventh were definitely
5:10 pm
something that push the buttons of american politicians and we saw a united states delegation leaving the assembly hall when these comments were made take a listen to the comments. when i raised is a very clear discussion and a precise one and event occurred in under the pretext of that event two countries were invaded and up until now hundreds of thousands of people have been killed as a result due to think that that excuse needs to be revised don't you feel that if a fact finding mission was present from the start to explore the true reason behind september eleventh that we would not see the catastrophes in afghanistan and iraq why do you soon that all nation should accept what the u.s. government tells them. also we experience this war of words between the united states and iran and neither one feel to really get a point across to the other while taking stage at the u.n. general assembly hall i was sissie of the did as you alluded to earlier on appear to be so give though didn't the president ever do that here says his country is open for dialogue over its nuclear program but any strings attached.
5:11 pm
you know kevin absolutely because reading president mahmoud ahmadinejad has really been sending out very mixed messages to the united states and the rest of the international community over these last couple of days even if we exclude these comments which were clearly said to provoke the u.s. in particular he has been saying that when it comes to iran's are you reading richmond program that iran has always been open to dialogue then he was saying that the format which is being proposed by the international community is not good enough then he was saying that if the united states continues attacking iran if the united states attacks its you read him in richmond facilities there could be a war going on so because of all of these mixed messages and because of mahmoud ahmadinejad really seeming to change his mind around so much every single day his mood really seems to be different and old all of these statements coming out just in a matter of a couple of days is really sending
5:12 pm
a mixed message out so the international community is expected to be pretty cautious when it comes to the next steps and really keeping promises of the remaining leader what the iranian leader and the american leader had to say was very important it wasn't all of them was a huge gathering of world leaders well what about. you know kevin it's been a very very busy week basically in the first couple of days there was a millennium development goal summit where leaders were trying to come up with the outline of specific steps of fixing poverty and hunger in the world by the year twenty fifteen we also saw an important russian nido council meeting where nato has been calling for a joint missile defense plan between russia and nato when they were discussing a possible summit that could take place in lisbon in november and russia has been saying that mechanisms can be worked out but no details have yet been set in place and of course the middle east peace process the middle east peace quartet met and
5:13 pm
urged israel to extend its freeze on settlement construction in the west bank and gaza so that the direct talks between israel and the palestinians can continue so definitely a lot on the program and the u.n. general debate continues so we're going to have to wait and see what happens next the coverage coming out of courtesy of you in the team there in new york's appreciated thank you. she was so long tonight out. a web site today with the green party you know she wants a presidential candidate for the upcoming election because she's a victim to killing a kid is a child that small thing but do you think that should stop it doing what it wants to do you know maybe let us know the stuff. so what's your take on that story also take a look at this. the frenzy there is a very increase if he shows off his skateboarding skills to his parents i believe as the kids on the street would say gives him still. did very well what's more the
