6:00 am
twenty one people linked to last year's football rioting in egypt causes a new outbreak of violence and follows a night of government protests right on the anniversary of the revolution. barack obama is losing ground in egypt. with the initial high expectations for his policy in the arab world. could plunge into recession for the third time in four years according to the latest g.d.p. figures being ultimately dragged by debt and the eurozone.
6:01 am
well with worldwide news around the clock this is our. welcome to the program. after friday's mass clashes between police and government protesters across egypt unrest is now in the city of port after twenty one people were sentenced to death this for their role in football riots last year that source seventy four lose their lives or relatives or the defendants attempted to storm a local prison following the verdict eight people were reportedly killed in the process our troops have been deployed to the city with reports that train lines have now been shut down well true reports. really harsh sentence the death sentence for twenty one people this is being met with violent scenes in port side at the moment reports on the ground are saying they're seeing civilians with their automatic weapon. running around the streets attacking
6:02 am
security forces here in cairo the scenes are actually relatively jubilant as the ultras the hardcore people fans see this is very much a victory this of course quite a politicized verdict at the time of the disaster and people said that the security officials themselves had quite a lot to do with the massacre as they let the rival fun club groups meet in the center of the pitch and the legibly blocked access exit routes that for people are saying that really the security officials themselves should be the ones that receive this verdict not just the funds as i came to the studios they're actually just clashes just on the corner of the periphery of to here between protesters and security forces who are throwing rocks at each other here and to here people still remain in tents they say they will not leave until the president mohamed morsi makes changes the opposition coalition the national salvation front released for the mind yesterday including asking asking the president to step down
6:03 am
and the national salvation government to take over we've seen multiple supposedly multiple deaths in places across the country as well to kill or in suicide so what we're seeing yesterday really was a lot of anger against the president and his government on the second anniversary of the uprising and the protest sit ins and possible violence across the country added to that as well. and as we just heard tens of thousands of demonstrators were calling on president mohamed morsi to step down so i mean that is a muslim brotherhood back the government is only working for islamists. the editor of the newspaper says the people of egypt have grown increasingly disillusioned with the politics of the u.s. backed muslim brotherhood. people who voted for him to give him a good chance. at the last. for most of these people who are out in the streets to the people in egypt now truly allies that.
6:04 am
religion and politics should be mixed clearly and some. would use. religion to get the support of the people and once we are in our view would in a very very differently from what the have been promising and that's one of the reasons of the anger you seeing to the industry to egypt. americans want some ways community to ensure and secure their interest in egypt but now their pictures and that 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
6:05 am
what's happening today the people of egypt who are back in the streets. the freak of the regime today. well egypt was i want to first state in the arab world or the us was said to have nudged towards democracy through revolt president obama had some of his highest ratings then and there and is now witnessed a sharp drop in popularity it's seen as a sign that washington has failed to define a consistent policy in their wages it is porous land of just why the perception of the u.s. in the muslim world has now become so tarnished. i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world words of promise that field a region with hope. but as a bomber begins his second term in office his critics failed him on a first term that fell far short of expectations progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stored the promised economic development of afghanistan
6:06 am
never took root and american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't fifty the u.s. 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 saudi arabia and i think they thought they could just break out of that was it all they could have. asked r.t. or asked and therefore i shouted i'm not leaking oil also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance for world security and human 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
6:07 am
was essentially setting the united states up for situations where. 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 obama's side 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 all do us any favor or any good we realize that all our expectations which were very high turned out to 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
6:08 am
and hollywood recent polls show overall confidence in obama has dropped especially in muslim countries were declining 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 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 that's another 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 a 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
6:09 am
promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. is coming here live from moscow a former cia agent who oversaw the capture of the man thought to be al qaeda is third in command has now been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for leaking classified intelligence john kiriakou was the first to blow the whistle on washington's torture program and later revealing the name of an alleged torture at guantanamo bay the cia has denied the accusations referring instead to enhanced interrogation techniques details on those two arteries gynae chica. 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 mystic had been actively speaking out against 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
6:10 am
investigation into how military defense attorneys acquired tunnel bay 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 these 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 is going to prison the fact of the matter is that the u.s. government has classified everything related to its torture practices which means nobody can be prosecuted for human rights violations that were systematic of systematically committed at one comment here is what mr get out will says about
6:11 am
that i never tortured anybody but i'm getting to prison while the torture is in the lawyers people who brood and the people who deceived and the man who destroyed the tapes will never sees justice and that's the saddest part of the story. this is ministration has prosecuted more whistleblowers 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 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. talk about being on the cover of. clothing the potential. will be showing. visible

6:14 am
latest g.d.p. think is or even worse than expected and the british economy shrank point three percent in the fourth quarter of twenty twelve an achievement zero growth for the whole year and you can as finance minister george osborne described it as quote a very difficult economic situation he said with debts building up at home and problems with the eurozone the u.k. has to come confront issues on many levels the director of the institute of economic affairs in london mark littlewood says the british government simply 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 twenty twelve is not the british economy absolutely tanking but basically flat lining 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.
6:15 am
are doing isn't working if the aim 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 growth in the u.k. economy about now and i'm afraid that has turned out to be a pipe dream but let's be clear about this austerity target that you saw a lot does saying that the u.k. government has persuaded itself and most of the media and all of their political opponents 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 but you also need i think a clearer plan but what's really going to attract business investment in the u.k.

counter surveillance fashion. keeping a close eye on civilians with a little help from drones only in a move approved by congress in seven years the u.s. will help thirty thousand mester drones monitoring its territory from the air that opens the door for a lot of duces of privacy. from not just the government but corporations and businesses too. in a fight for privacy in this new york designer came up with a counter surveillance clothing line intended to shield people from those watchful lenses a burka a scarf and a hoodie are the key garments in the collection this is a garment that's designed to be thermally reflective of which means that he bounces off it and he does what suits for thermal imaging in particular this technology is used a lot on drones and he would use if there were drawings harboring about money hardly anybody who is out on the streets is clearly traceable the idea of this collection is that putting on something like this. is
6:18 am
a bit are. these parts of your body become very hard to detect. from a potential fashion statement to a technology that could eventually be used in rescue operations or even on a battlefield i think we're just thing. a market hasn't been addressed yet it's a new area and it's sort of a crossover between tactical and fashion it adds a little extra coverage to the face out of harvey calls his consumer market unfashionably paranoid if you appear to me and i can see you i'm quite alright with that but if you appear in automated systems and how it becomes a little more to your disadvantage because this data can be easily mind tracked and identified another counter-surveillance item in the collection the off pocket for a phone once a mobile device is put inside there are no more signals going in and out the

6:23 am
a movie or music off the internet i plead the fifth i'll take that as a yes if you think there's anything wrong with that you know why do people get very angry about it and send people to jail that are not the problem is that they're being wrong is that people who need to make money don't make their money. should they just figure out a new way is it up to them or is that up to us to stop taking it. have you never stolen anything off the web for moral reasons or just because you never have never . known how to if it were easy and you did know how to would you do it more often if i knew how to do it i mean. bad things. you know should it be free should music in movies be free. by you but. i don't think people take it as serious as the government. should we should we take it more seriously. and you know it's it's music but it's not money coming out of your
