2:06 pm
could have. asked are was or are and their fights now that i'm not leaking oil also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a greater transferability security engineering 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 qaida in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it 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 them aside washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not

2:08 pm
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 that 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 a promise of 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 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. the largest thing coming from the historic baikonur cosmodrome of late has not been the roar of russian rockets but rather a row over the environmental impact because it stands to monza now threatening to derail russia's entire space program there well in my colleague spoke. about the

2:16 pm
a large erosion of privacy i would say is not. confined to the u.s. either this is a global problem to start a conversation and make people more aware of the growing trend of surveillance through fashion is adam's goal the designer admits the clothing line is not for everybody but those who want to adapt to these new realities could now be a step closer to avoiding the gaze of big brother and says you're going to party new york. on our website right now an internal report reveals that computer giant apple used labor to produce its latest must have devices we have the details for you the moment you don't comb. through it confirms intentions of carrying out a third nuclear test saying it's all of the people. online. while the movers and shakers of the money world have been debating the future of the global economy at the annual form. caught up with russia's. only for an

a cia veteran retired in two thousand and four and was outspoken about the use of secret interrogations and waterboarding by the u.s. he could have been sentenced to eight years in prison had he not secured a plea deal with prosecutors or through an activist sibel edmonds believes that insiders will be targeted and punished for making a stand as long as u.s. authorities continue to cover up wrongdoing on my picture taken with them we do see this type of witch hunt action against those who leave 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 door so-called channels rigging remedies or solutions that these very big problems are wrongdoings so when you have no channels there is only one option and that is to get
2:20 pm
information and put it before the public whether it's through our website such as we all are partly citizens journalists because as you know mainstream media they act as the extension of the government here in the united states there are no other channels to go to and the public has their right to know and they give got is a very important key 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 the ones who are being criminalized. in other world news now at least fifteen thousand people have marched in the south of the british capital in protest against the proposed closure of services at a hospital there several local units including that if you would an accident and emergency department are to be closed as part of a reorganization program as after the south london health care trust was placed into administration due to running up huge debts demonstrators claimed the plans would put lives at risk and create a worrying political precedent. french troops have retaken isn't

2:22 pm
terrorist attacks for assisting nato led foreign forces within the country. now is file sharing a crime or a vital online necessity the debate has been raging for years in the us for the government trying to halt the exchange of digital content for free what is new york resident gauged opinion that. kim dotcom just launched his new file sharing service mega he says by using it you're saying yes to internet freedom is file sharing the future of the internet this week let's talk about that have you ever stolen 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 dude people get
2:23 pm
very angry about it and send people to jail that are not the problem is are they 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. but 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 criminals every day doing bad things with expelling you know should it be free should music in movies be free no not autistic or social by you but. i don't think people take it as serious as the governmentally rodeo success of people at home should we should we take it more serious hard to ease up when you know it's music but it's not money coming out of your pocket like it has out of the artists or directors or studios. i don't know mobile size of the firm so i think it's been. sort of issue it really is what it is how do we stop
2:24 pm
people from stealing though if it's so easy i think they need to appreciate the arts and they need and they will appreciate and steal music yeah i think it's better to give a dollar to the arts than you know a politician or your government yeah of course there are cigarettes but maybe if some of it will go to some kind of donation maybe it will inspire people to do so do you think though that you know the future is going to have a whole different landscape for intellectual property that will view it differently like it's kind of everyone's. i don't know i haven't really thought about it i mean i guess if you write a song you'd still yours so you should still have get credit for it at least ninety nine cents and you had so much that. you should get something whether or not you think file sharing is the future of the internet the bottom line is enough people do it to pose a serious threat to current business models. well
2:25 pm

2:27 pm
