2:04 am
religion and politics should not be mixed clearly and that some nation would use islam and religion to get the support of the people and once they are in power be with in a very very differently from what the i've been promising and that's. one of the reasons of the anger you are seeing two in three to egypt. americans want to intrude 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 quark the that actually will decide what's happening in egypt and the people of egypt neither the united states nor morsi himself have much say in what's happening to the people of
2:05 am
egypt who are back in the streets. free of the regime today. egypt was one of the first states and there are while the u.s. was said to have devolved to democracy through a revolt president obama has sent out they highest ratings that has now witnessed a sharp drop in popularity it's seen as a sign that washington has failed to define a consistent policy in the region his policy looks out why the perception of the u.s. and the muslim world has got some bad. i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world words of promise left field of religion with hope and mutual respect but as obama begins his second term in office his critics though he want to first term the felt national it's the tensions progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remains stored the promised economic development of afghanistan never took root and
2:06 am
american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't just the us and elegance 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 it all they could have. massed its army was loyal and there are fights now that i'm not least oil also but in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance it looks a cash management 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.
2:07 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 and still i would say that the people in general. stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do and it 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
2:08 am
turned out to be zero as a matter of fact islamophobia inside the united states is on the increase hope to no small part 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 where 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 beautified the ugly face that bush left its american interests that lead american presidents the only difference is one president smiles the other doesn't. consist in american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not the issue it is it is a political issue and that's why i didn't have a lot of hope for the arab antipathy has not been softened by a bomb the support for the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few
2:09 am
american presidents have lost a good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as a bomber for him now to a new trust in america he'll have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. a former cia agent who oversaw the country of the month old to be al qaeda said in command has been sentenced to serve and a half years in prison for leaking classified intelligence john kiriakou was the first to blow the whistle on washington's daughter program after revealing the name of an alleged torture and guntown him obey the cia denies that his actions are a fairy instead to enhanced interrogation techniques are his gain a trick and has the details. the cia veteran the former chief of counterterrorism operations in pakistan john key will spend thirty months in prison for leaking the identity of an agent but before he was prosecuted mistake he had been actively speaking out against torture and now he and his supporters believe that he was
2:10 am
prosecuted for coming clean over torture practices in the cia it started with an investigation into how military defense attorneys acquired tunnel bait obtained the names and photographs of cia personnel as ortiz eventually tracked one name back to a reporter who had spoken to mr. rather than risk a far longer prison term and because he could no longer afford his legal fees and stick it out when a cobra 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 key actually engaged in torture he wouldn't be in any trouble at all he never even would have been investigated because he talked about torture with reporters he was going to prison the fact of the matter is that the u.s. government has classified everything related to its torture practices which means
2:11 am
nobody can be prosecuted for human rights violations that were systematic of systematically committed of one comment here is what mr get out will says about that i never tortured anybody. but i get into prison while the torture is in the lawyers people who groove and the people who just say you did and the man who destroyed the. will never sees justice and that's the saddest part of the story. this is an inspiration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous administrations combined and 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 can just stop it from torturing on his watch through an executive order which means that the u.s. could be only another executive order away from some other president or vice president deciding to torture again. so kiriakou supporters praised him for exposing the extent of the cia's use of torture in prisons and answers to north

opponents to 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 a year a pretty trivial amount and they are taking far far too long to bring the budget back into balance they 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 their first north a ban on the promotion of homosexuality among children something scuffles outside the same humane moscow between gay rights supporters planning a push this case and that opponents that were closely following about so here at r.t. dot com. and also online watch out getting some at a san francisco it could mean somebody is watching you this is his straight line being a put says while. now british german and dutch
