politicians who opposed u.s. military expansion and who dared to question and dissent from washington orthodoxies on foreign policy one of them has to do with israel if you dare to publicly point out that the u.s. and israel are separate countries and american interests should trump israeli interests when they conflict and that's a subversive thing to say here in washington could be a career killer yet it catered for direct negotiations with hamas he condemned the power of the pro israel lobby in washington here's one of his statements to that effect the political reality is that the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here i have always argued against some of the dumb things they do because i don't think it's in the interest of israel i just don't think it's smart for israel needless to say his nomination for the position of defense secretary has incurred a slew of objections for the past three weeks different interest groups have been running attack ads on t.v. saying things like he's soft on iraq and he's a bad choice for the job go on like the vast majority of us politicians who keep

repeating the all options are on the table mantra has allowed himself to say outright that attacking iran is a stupid idea is nomination is seen as a bold move on president obama's part and it's an important decision image wise for the president as hinted at possible changing foreign policy but many fear that charge could deliver that change in full solid more than in substance because there's only so much one person can do in washington and speaking of the other person along with chuck hagel president obama nominated his counterterrorism adviser john brennan as the next director of the cia john brennan has been in charge of some of obama's most controversial policies including the targeted assassinations program one where the to. inspiration determines who will be marked for execution without any due process oversight or transparency is the man who's been in charge of president obama's chiles last year john brennan claimed that the u.s. drone program called no civilian deaths in pakistan over the prior year which was
6:04 am
an outright lie by so many accounts add to that the fact that as the bush era cia official mr brennan had endorsed torture and rendition and also was a vocal advocate of bush administration's warrantless wiretapping program and we can see why he is deemed most fit for the job as the head of the central intelligence agency which over the years has evolved into a paramilitary force the logic some see behind nominating higgle and brennan for these top national security positions is that when accused of being hawkish the president can say does my defense secretary low kokesh do you ever accused of being soft he can point out his new cia director who can be accused of anything but being soft my colleague bill dobbs spoke to former cia officer ray mcgovern who believes obama security nominations he says as a counterweight to each other. nine cia directors in britain would have to be the worst. he is an open as because of what is called extraordinary rendition.

black prisons illegal eavesdropping and kill list from these drone that they're so proud of flying over places like hockey style i'm almost compelled to conclude that either he's really dumb or he sees real profit as the for parishioners to the profiteering on these and less wars and in contrast to this the nomination for defense secretary that is very different in character in nature seen by many as a pacifist what do you make of the future of u.s. foreign policy if indeed hagel gordon is top man in the defense the difference between hale and his predecessors is this paygo has been there done that ok hagel served in war he was an infantry noncommissioned officer wounded twice to
6:06 am
two purple hearts he knows what war is like that means the difference and when haig will says he would be very very careful about employing our forces in fool's errands such as afghanistan god help us iraq he's going to be a worthy stand up against people like brennan who don't know the half of it and who never served our country's armed forces and for the bodies attitude towards israel he's been accused of speaking out against the influence of the israeli lobby there in the us is that something that will be a stumbling block for his nomination a girl famously said one time i'm not the senator from israel i'm the senator from america now. does that make good sense on the face of it would somebody be open to criticism for that kind of the you know it shows it shows how delicate that he can't even speak about the jewish lobby or say that he's the senator from the united states and not from israel without being criticized for what this that
6:07 am
tell you about the power of the israel lobby. the nomination of john brennan as head of the cia is also under scrutiny in today's edition of breaking the sect and as always every mountain pulls no punches describing the controversy surrounding the choice watch the show later this hour here on r.t. the white house counterterrorism policy has gone a little something like this shoot first ask questions later and answer to no one cut you phrase for which we should thank john brennan in fact he coaches obama every terror tuesday on how to assassinate around the world this is the number one advisor overseeing the drone king's kill list john brennan's nickname is the assassination czar for god's sake and this is the guy who was ushering this country through the next phase of the war on terror.
6:08 am
one hundred eighty promises and just over two years left to prove that not all empty these days ruling coalition has used red joint appearance to pet does in the bag and pleasure more tough decisions when i already feel sorry jihad bridgend for of has more on the midterm review. prime minister david cameron and the dutch team leaders the kind that should nick clegg giving one of their rare joint public appearances together to deliver this mid-term review it was an awkward appearance it was really really difficult watching there were red faces several awkward pulls is that these really embarrassing jig it was certainly i think rare public to integrate into somebody would say of this they support and that's probably quite a good thing this is something up where halfway through the coalition now of course a huge question was whether the coalition again to be breaking up whether they're going to stay together the main message from the key leaders was that presenting
6:09 am
a united front that they're in this for the full five years of course their plans that they laid out the next steps that are going to follow already being criticized by the us that this is and he promised. sare you know there was a lot of summing up we're going to get the details of this sort of bulk mid-term or the in the coming weeks that some of the things that they saw to touched upon that they feel they've achieved and among the things like the welfare reform the education reform you know you cast your mind back to what that actually entailed we saw these huge protest movements a hike in the university fees a huge outrage and feet of london you know i think when you get the bulk of detail like this some he certainly seems to be brushed over as i said a little bit awkward and it was very noticeable that people were laughing genuinely that was sort of met with a kind of a nice silence in some part saying you know this is no laughing matter it's
6:10 am
a very serious point in the coalition there are big questions for the future of this and big question still remain every time they give an appearance like this we ask about europe and people trying to glean a bit more information and you know it is quite short on substance i think a lot of people are just behaving that the plans that were laid out today in the midterm with the again to be better received than the prime minister's jake's were at the take a little bit of a closer look at the detail of what the coalition has achieved or not as the case may be here's my colleague. well it does look like the private pension could be going extinct that's according to one prominent pensions expert here in the u.k. he says that by twenty fifty they could be moved because it turns out that just twelve percent of young people in their twenty's and thirty's are saving for their retirement to put a lot of young people in the u.k. who aren't thinking about their pensions a tool and that's leading to concerns over potential pensions gap in the future the
6:11 am
sad reality is that young people nowadays they have. financial pressure is on their plate and with austerity measures in full swing with the financial crisis we've got young people on very low wages having to live with a very high cost of living at the same time they could have debts in the form of university fees that they have to pay off if they're lucky they'll have a mortgage but there's the the truth is that a lot of young people have all these very immediate pressures and so they just hope they don't have time to think about putting money away for thirty or forty years down the line that's money that they might not see again and there's a double sort of irony in this because by the time that they retire the pension age is going to be at least sixty eight and there are reports saying that some people have said that well if the pension age is going to be sixty eight we might not live that long so why stay for it so it is quite a grim picture at the moment and more financial problems in the euro but as medics they hit the streets of madrid awful government decision time is parts of the

6:15 am
actually it's almost impossible not to violate any sanction if you deal with north korea because almost anything is dual use the procedures or check whether you are not while it sanctions are very complicated very costly and there's also a great deal of unknown to insecurity about what the actual rules are and my freshen is that this is keeping away western investors in particular big ones. online we have the story about the an easy relationship between u.s. intelligence and the president quite old i told you dot com to find out why president of korea believes the cia tried to kill him i had all the upcoming election. that says the u.s. comes to terms with a series of mass shootings as some gun loving americans have introduced their own holiday. we've got the whole story online.

6:18 am
rosa and others like her see the country as a place where. you can move more freely you have more opportunities. robust economic growth and increased spending on social projects to help create those opportunities having the state on your side in terms of the benefits is a huge thing because you don't have to worry about your basic necessities everyone has the right to universal free health care quality health care education at all levels the government provide subsidies to start up small businesses medium sized businesses they do the same in terms of housing to help people if they're coming from a country where the economic crisis is so bad they've been cutting all those benefits that as well begins to look like a paradise that may certainly seem to be the case for those on the bottom president hugo chavez helped bring the poverty rate down from fifty percent when he took office to roughly thirty one percent last year and the u.n. says venezuela has the lowest level of inequality in latin america.
6:19 am
it's one child as diehard supporters among the poor but what about the rich critics say chavez is alienating the wealthy many of whom turned out in droves to vote for his opponent in october closely contended election twenty first century socialism hasn't helped us it has hurt job his opponents blame his so-called socialist experiment for problems like limited foreign investment they say that it's driving businessmen and entrepreneurs out of the country. by daniel year g.'s himself a young businessman by daniel year g.'s him spending twelve years in barcelona he decided to return to venezuela not just for the economic benefits he says but for the chance to partake in a different sort of future order there are two very different political forces in this country one wants to move towards capitalism the other is on the path of socialism in the taber lection the people of venezuela voted to make the country greener fairer to create more opportunities i mean in this regard many venezuelans like myself have decided to return home. and so they do showing that for some
6:20 am
gambling in venezuela system may be worth the risk you see catherine of r.t. venezuela. after fourteen years in power venezuela's president hugo chavez is known for his lengthy speeches and twenty two of other movers and shakers around the world have been making a name for themselves now it's your turn to say who you think was the person all of the year and right now it seems like a days a clear leader founder of the whistle blowing web site a week julian a stand is on top right now with seventy percent of the vote next devil felix baumgartner will you will remember smash many world records when he jumped to earth from a balloon in the stratosphere he takes twelve percent of the very first person to hit one billion views on you tube with a gang man style south korean rapper peers are peers while legs and tension on r g dot com with only ten percent and

6:22 am
facilities like health care clearly there is a concern amongst the doctors that you're going to see an incredible mind about religious profiteering being made by the private health sector but i think actually the truth is that ultimately governments all do large scale health provision that's the pure and certain to spawn yours are not sure whether their economy cancer vive burn its current creaking steps keeping the budget under control is proving to be a headache on the other side of the atlantic to let saudis legs lies expose the murky waters of america's spending strategy. why is the pentagon off the table but pentagon spending is a function of money printing it's a function of money printing because i'm running printing what ordinarily cause massive inflation but dead soldiers equal deflation that's how you have to look at that arlington national cemetery that's america's answer to inflation it's the

deflationary forces of genocide pentagon budget increases and killing helpless women and children around the world they keep stuff in america cheap enough for they can say no good low class to keep themselves on amused and distracted. violence is spiraling in northern ireland where dozens of police officers have been injured in clashes with life blessed by the belfast city. the flying of the union flag analyst and political blogger mick felt he believes the riots are symptom of a deep social division and political tamal the do present loyalist fuse foreseeing here is in northern ireland as a result of the peace process we have a government in which everyone who is elected to the parliament is part of the government that leaves no space for parliamentary opposition and so when something
6:24 am
like this happens that is seen by certain mostly working class suddenly in lower middle class communities too is being provocative there is no political way of actually expressing your opposition so to some extent we're seeing just hard difficult it is to manage a popular protest in a situation where there is no option to change the government so to speak because the government includes everyone who ever gets elected. some other international news in grief now hundreds of protesters in the past voicing their anger over violence against women for an eleven because they get to date setting also another prime minister's residence campaigners are demanding that the government punish those involved in such crimes the demonstrations was sparked by the alleged rape of a twenty one year old made by a policeman after she was robbed at any. james holmes of the alleged gunmen in

a movie theater massacre in colorado last july has appeared in court for pretrial hearing police officers testified on monday that holmes carry knives into semiautomatic rifles or strangely relaxed and acted detached during his arrest twelve people died in the incident during the premiere of batman movie the town of war the preliminary hearing is set to last all. more news in just. next it's a breaking news that with every month and. usually crime is a plague of the big cities but in a tiny arkansas town of twenty five thousand it is really getting out of hand pure
6:26 am
gold is a property crime index of more than double the national average and rape burglary and assault are also way above average poor poor gold is a dangerous place to live in but what's the answer to living in constant fear of criminals well the mayor thinks that the answer to that problem is to live in constant fear of the government how logical the mayor and police chief have a doorstop plan to send out police patrols with a ar fifteen and full swat are to i guess intimidate the local population into submission well actually the plan is for them to stand around it ask people an important question ask them to show i.d. the answer to crime isn't a police state sending guys out with automatic weapons and body armor around just to check people's i.d.'s like it's the berlin wall or something won't do anything a guy who breaks into your house for crystal meth money isn't going to be affected by this only the good average citizens will have to show an arm thug of their id just to go buy milk but that's just my opinion.
6:27 am
you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realize that everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm tom hardy is a big issue. you live on one hundred thirty three bucks a month so food i should try it because you know how fabulous i had lunch i got so many i mean family and friends and i know that i'm still feeling really messed up. in the old story so personally apologize if that's. the worst you are to live through the white house or the. radio guy for minestrone.
6:28 am
what the are what we're about to give you never seen anything like that i'm still. going on guys i'm having martin and this is breaking the set there are many things we know about marilyn monroe one of the greatest icons of the twentieth century we're just learning for the first time fifty years after her death and that she was heavily targeted by the f.b.i. man was subject to intense surveillance and scrutiny because of her close association of people with a left leaning ideologies but this is the period of the red scare a time in which the establishment was on a witch hunt against anyone they suspected might subscribe to anticapitalist beliefs and their mccarthyism ruined the lives and destroyed the careers of thousands of people in the country and marilyn monroe was perhaps one of them the
6:29 am
government was very threatened with her willingness to embrace socialist ideas and activism his fan base could have galvanized millions to challenge the reigning us system out of the many faces that we know mary of marilyn monroe today the actress the model the bombshell the one face we never came to know was the socially conscious politically aware thinker who was critical in a climate of absolute fear and suppression merriment was. seeking something other than the status quo which is what i try to do here on the show as well so when her legacy lets break the set. many obstacles remain for citizens worldwide that have been dealing with the effects of the great recession especially for those facing foreclosures as a result of the eurozone crisis payne's banks recently began to receive payments.
