2:04 am
minded left wingers complain but i think the president especially of a country like france one of sixty you founders should be strong enough to say stop to others and say hey i have my nation behind me and they elected me to make changes instead he surrendered because he's more worried about the country's debt and the ratings agencies make. in a short video french communists put together some of our lawns major presidential campaign vows none of which they say came true but what that's what led to the value added tax increase. i think it's an appropriate and unjustified and unreasonable and too hasty. what happened to well that's to remind the president you remember you promised to review the european treaty you didn't do that here in germany bring said a three percent deficit isn't real but now only say it's possible etc etc you can't not do what you promised meanwhile recent polls show

for our team from paris. president bashar al assad says syria can take on any for that confronts it while accusing israel of trying to destabilize the country it was his first public statement since an alleged israeli airstrike inside syria last week israel's defense minister has given the strongest indication yet that the i.d.f. was behind that attack on his policy and now reports. it does come from the israeli defense minister it would be broke and he has said that it is proof that when israel says something it means that he did stop short of actually a third being israel's involvement now u.s. officials have said that the strike targeted an arms convoy that was carrying anti aircraft weapons from syria to lebanon according to the israeli defense minister ehud barak he said that we do not think and i'm quoting that syria should be allowed to bring advanced weapons systems into lebanon it is important to make the point that his comments does not constitute acknowledgement of israel's involvement
2:07 am
in the strike but it certainly does suggest the possibility that it took place and it was responsible for it but also said that the syrian president bashar assad's fall is imminent and that it would serve as a major blow to his and iran need to look at this israeli strategy and it's a strategy that israel has employed in the past and that is namely a strategy of silence it is strategic it doesn't give any kind of confirmation or any kind of denial of what israel has done in the past as launch an attack then leave and it really its response has been a no comment which really leaves the question in observations minds it is a culture lated moves because this simons allows israel's enemies to save face and thus reduce the risk of reprisals and it's collation against the jewish state of course the international fallout from any kind of israeli strike in syria would create immense arguments in the international community we've heard for example from moscow who says that if indeed israel did carry out the strike it was an attack on
2:08 am
a sovereign state and as such it breached international law and the arab league has also condemned the strike saying it is in violation of international law and it is purported against a nother sovereign state so israel of course will not want to come out publicly and acknowledge that it carried out such a strike because it would not want to have the kind of diplomatic complications and diplomatic fallout that would follow from such an admission. and to beirut based middle east expert only risk says damascus has covert means to retaliate against any israeli attack for now i don't believe that there will be all out military warfare although we have to remember that. law is one of syria's allies iran is also one of syria's allies and it's important to note here that the the head of the supreme national security council the iranian supreme national security council side really is currently in syria or so more not respond directly with a direct you know conventional army to conventional army warfare but there might be
2:09 am
other means used targeting for example certain israeli officials storing the trouble for israel in general and i think that that's something would syria is an expert at doing syria has on the side and also on the his father has been a source of concern for a very long time for the israeli side of his role one to fall because this will basically break down the iranian husband last syrian access which is the biggest threat to the not of your government. with another round of talks on the e.u. budget looming the lido the block strongest economies meeting the leader one of the weakest in the attempts to lay the groundwork for a new deal the german chancellor is hosting this punish prime minister back home in madrid mariano rajoy is battling a corruption scandal and doubts over his handling of the economy and he speaks on of the reports not from the late. it could very well be called a meeting between the euro zone's haves and well quite frankly the have nots as
2:10 am
german chancellor angela merkel sits down to talks with the spanish prime minister mariano what are quite germany still widely regarded as the euro zone's the only real success economically while as many fear that spain could go the way of greece now the spanish prime minister will receive the full welcome of germany including full military honors holidays he was to turn up at the doorstep of many in his own country he may face severe criticism that's because many spanish citizens still think he hasn't done enough to deal with bank has the same basically the bearings are a huge incredible feast run only by greed the government's not helping the people the topping the banks it has been at least thirty or fifty times the issue but in the last month there was three people they were going to be if you have to find out how it is but they hang themselves before the police were right there only any i

2:12 am
and they do something with it but they don't tell you what they're doing with it so it's a very unstable situation when you promise people things and then you don't show what you're doing with their money and then and that's what happened in lehman brothers and bear stearns and. merrill lynch and all these companies that one on one under one after the other everybody started worrying because they couldn't see the assets so what we need to do is. get rid of this faith based banking we need to have. no leverage and we have to have transparency. and you can catch the full interview with economist laurence kotlikoff as a chain forty five jancee and just ahead for you this hour. the subject coming up

a question that they trip that leads to indication of deception the drilling down on all questions that they get asked may well be quite true over the past ten years. at least fifteen federal agencies including the n.s.a. and f.b.i. have reportedly continued or expanded their polygraph screenings with nearly five million people having access to classified information or washington maintains that polygraph testing is the most effective way from preventing secrets from being leaked lisa ribicoff is an independent polygraph examiner and investigator who uses the polygraph program designed by homeland security she contends that it's ninety eight percent accurate i do think that there are some questions pertaining to some emotional aspects and personal situations should not be included but i do understand why they're included on the basis of that the government needs to see

how exactly what their breaking point is what are they willing to discuss what are they not willing to discuss however applicants who are denied a coveted position after failing a polygraph are prohibited from accessing the records of their interrogation and are often barred from contesting the results were filing complaints in federal court in two thousand and four the cia veteran who conducted lie detector interrogations for thirty one years failed his own screening there was absolutely no question in my mind that the test was wrong. this was a terrible test sullivan lost his security clearance and was denied a job with a federal contracting agency he claims his examiner falsified the results possible retribution for solving his book detailing america's polygraph system subject for polygraph tests now are guilty until proven innocent and i think that's a. corruption and an abuse of the process the obama administration is now promising
