can't breathe and they came to the streets in generation two five two thousand and eleven they were fed up with the injustices of the regime and they've returned now because people are saying we've seen no change on the top of the agenda people are saying is the economy very hard for people to find. you don't implement rates for example around seventy seven percent which is staggering lehi in addition of course there is a lot of anger directed towards the new constitution which people say is written by an islamist dominated constituent assembly and doesn't represent egypt we've heard a lot of chance against the president mohamed morsi and his group calling for changes and also for him to leave. the full city in the most violent clashes with the military deployed to try and maintain security eight people including a policeman and a fourteen year old boy were shot the protesters set fire to
12:03 am
a building which used to house the local government another person has also been shot and killed in the city of. but protesters also said they had scores of their muslim brotherhood on fire while to hire square in cairo has been the epicenter of the rally is much like during the uprising to oust was in a bike two years ago alexandria and sayed were also seen as a violent street clashes. in the editor is online newspaper says the people of egypt have grown increasingly disillusioned with the politics of the muslim brotherhood people who voted for them to give them a chance for. the last support of most of the people who are out in the streets to the people in egypt now who realize that.
12:04 am
religion and politics should not be mixed clearly and that some patients would use. religion to get the support of the people and once the are the would act in a very very differently from what the have been promising and that's part of one of the reasons of their anger are you seeing to the industry to egypt. americans want from this community to ensure and secure their interest in egypt but now their pictures and the reality has shown that actually muslim brotherhood does not have they were short of the support of the majority of people in egypt now there is only one party that's actually will decide what's happening in egypt and that's the people of egypt neither the united states nor morsi himself much say in what's happening today the people of egypt who are back in the streets that. is
12:05 am
why the fate of the regime today. it was one of the first states in the arab world america is said to have nots towards democracy through revolt president obama had some of his highest ratings there and has now seen one of his sharpest drops in popularity and it's seen as a sign that obama has failed to define a consistent policy in the region after his policy of looks now at why the perception of the u.s. has got so bad i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world words of promise that fueled a region with hope but as obama begins his second term in office his critics failed him on a first term that felt far short of expectations progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stalled the promised economic development of afghanistan
12:06 am
never took root. and american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't fifty the u.s. and eligible community has more or less thought that it was in control of something called the muslim brotherhood and they brought them from egypt into saudi arabia and i think they thought they could just break out of that was an hour they could have. my last r.t. or last and their fight now that i'm not. also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance for security entry and rights but the fallout from it ended with the death of the american ambassador and three other members of his staff the united states was overselling their so-called triumph over al-qaeda in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it was essentially setting the united states up for situations where.
12:07 am
elsewhere was still not just strong but getting stronger and was getting stronger because of policies that the united states had followed and it was washington's politics that did little to win palestinians over to bomb aside washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not surprising palestinians i would say that the people in general stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do and will do us any favors or any good and they looked at him that he was very honest to the american interest and to other interests maybe the israeli lobby but not to us. we realized that all our expectations which were very high turned out to
12:08 am
be zero as a matter of fact islamophobia inside the united states is on the increase helped in no small part of by the growing negative portrayal of the muslim world in the media and hollywood recent polls show overall confidence in obama has dropped especially in muslim countries we were declined by nine percent in three years global approval of his international policies is also decreased from a positive rating of thirty four percent in the muslim world in two thousand and nine to just fifteen percent in two thousand and twelve obama came just to beautified the ugly face that bush left it's american interests that lead american presidents the only difference is that while one president smiles the other doesn't and the american system and the american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not a personal issue it is it is a political issue and that's why i didn't have a lot of hope that the arab antipathy has not been softened by obama's support for

the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few american presidents have lost their good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as a bomber for him now to renew trust in america he'll have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. i thought my cia agent who oversaw the comptroller the man sought to be al qaeda said in command has been sentenced to a half years in prison for leaking classified intelligence john kiriakou was the first to blow the whistle on washington's torture program later revealing the name of alleged torture at guantanamo bay the cia denies the accusations referring instead to enhanced interrogation techniques. today's house. the cia veteran the former chief of counterterrorism operations in pakistan john kiriakou will spend thirty months in prison for leaking the identity of an agent but before he was prosecuted mr kitty acqua had been actively speaking out against
12:10 am
torture and now he and his supporters believe that he was prosecuted for coming clean over torture practices in the cia it started with an investigation into how military defense attorneys at guantanamo bay obtained the names and photographs of cia personnel authorities eventually tracked one name back to a reporter who had spoken to mr good apple rather than risk a far longer prison term and because he could no longer afford his legal fees and take it out when the tober agreed to plead guilty to one of the five charges against him violating the intelligence identities protection act by e-mailing the name of a covert cia officer to a freelance reporter who never even published it there's something very disturbing about this case had john kiriakou actually engaged in torture he wouldn't be in any trouble at all he never even would have been investigated but because he talked about torture with reporters he's going to prison the fact of the matter is that the u.s. government has classified everything related to his torture practices which means
12:11 am
nobody can be prosecuted for human rights violations that were systematically systematically committed at guantanamo here is what mr get out was about that i never tortured anybody. but i get into prison while the tortures of the lawyers and people who murder and the people who just you. and the man who destroyed the proof to you will never face justice and that's the saddest part of the story. this ignorance ration is prosecuted more with a blowers than all previous administrations combined while protecting those who have committed torture who have ordered torture behind this wall of classification contrary to popular belief president obama didn't stop the united states from torturing he just stopped it from portraying on his watch through an executive order which means that the us could be only another executive order away from some other president or vice president deciding to torture again kiriakou supporters
12:12 am
praise him for exposing the extent of the cia's use of torture in prisons and activist and also sibel edmonds says the u.s. classifies too much data sometimes to cover up wrongdoing and that means insight is making a stand will keep going to trail we do see this type of witch hunt action against those who lead you formation that exposes either government criminality or government waste fraud abuse so this is a selective behind we haven't had a single case where whistleblowers have been successful by pursuing bill so-called channels reading remedies or solutions to these very big problems wrongdoings so when you have no channels there's only one option and that is to get information and put it before the public whether it's through our website such as with you leaks or partly citizens journalists because as you know mainstream media they act
12:13 am
as the extension of the government here in the united states there are no other channels to go to and the public has no right to know and the gag is a very important point the public and i'm not talking about only people here in the united states but all over the world because people are being a fact that they are doing was were being criminalized. under the cover of fashion a u.s. design unveils clothing that protects privacy late in the foreground will be showing you the outfit they make you invisible to surveillance drones. i had. no i don't think people take it as serious as the government takes it's a report on should we should we take it more serious now i think ease up you know it's it's music. of his resident lower half and it's just people in the big apple one thing he's sort of file sharing exists in our way and.

you know they'll see it live from moscow the u.k. may be sliding back into their session but they said time for that said time i should say and forget as they may says judith they figures are even was unexpected the british economy shrank zero point three percent in the fourth quarter of twenty twelve and shaped as they were growth for the whole get the u.k. finance minister george osborne described it as a very difficult economic situation he said was debts building up at home and problems with the eurozone the u.k. has to come from stay shows direct so the institute for economic affairs and. noncommital web says the british government is not doing enough. of course we need to bear in mind when you look back actually a couple of years later often these numbers are revised up or down so we shouldn't really trust them to the very last decimal point what we've seen it appears over
12:17 am
twenty twelve is not the british economy absolutely tanking but basically flatlining and that is pretty much been the picture for the last two years it's not a crushing recession but it's certainly not a parent's back certainly what the coalition government here in the u.k. are doing isn't working if the item is to produce growth rates of two or three percent and indeed the government's independent forecasters suggested two years ago that we would be experiencing those sort of levels in growth for the u.k. economy about now and i'm afraid that it's turned out to be a pipe dream but let's be clear about this austerity that that use a lot that the u.k. government has persuaded itself and most of the media and all of their political opponents to get that there is some savage program of spending cuts being undertaken in the united kingdom that's a long way from the truth when you actually look at the numbers rather than the political rhetoric the government is cutting spending by about one percent
12:18 am
a year pretty trivial amount and they are taking far far too long to bring the budget back into balance but you also need i think a clearer plan but what's really going to attract business investment in the u.k. and what's going to make it easier for entrepreneurs. russia's parliament gives the ban on the promotional homosexuality sexuality among children prompting couples outside a stadium in moscow between gay rights supporters planning a protest case saying and opponents who are close to forming a bounce at all to don. nelson live or child getting some eyes in san francisco could mean somebody is watching you this it is streetlights are being equipped to spy on passers by.
