generating a former russian oligarch they hail from the close capel strolled on monday don't train was not political according to the european court of human rights which also found no violation of his right to a fat trial. news so russia and around the world this is all see with me here in ash hello and welcome to the program. america's national security agency is free to carry on spying at home and abroad the u.s. house of representatives a bloke's an amendment aimed at curbing the n.s.a.'s activities however they narrow defeated by just twelve votes such as deep divisions remain and pays down the owner of an internet service provider which has been shooting its kline's data for yes things that amendment would have been enough even if it passed but i think that the
6:02 am
only solution for keeping us safe from spying on people on the internet is people using encryption and then having service providers that are willing to stand up and stand against broad surveillance and wholesale monitoring you know there are many in congress who are calling edward snowden a traitor and a criminal when in fact i think it's the people in the n.s.a. who are the criminals who are not following the constitution and have perjured themselves in front of congress these are these are people we cannot trust and it's time that we taught them or shut them down the whole self surveillance the doing of americans is part of my america i would like to see it stopped i would snowden he revealed to the world one day and a say's up serious to wasting both paperwork allow him to leave he is in limbo in a moscow trials and so if the whistleblower received it today as some expect he'll be greeted by the glare of the world's media been waiting for him to come out since he arrived a month ago snowden has applied for temporary asylum in russia and is apparently
6:03 am
willing to settle here. brings us the latest from outside to apple. there are so many journalists here with their eyes and their camera lenses trained very heavily on any of the doors on the first floor that he may exit out of that being said you never know this is definitely a sort of catch me if you can situation if you will now his adviser here in russia anatoly in a did say the paperwork that he needs that would allow him to officially exits the airport and enter russia is is still not here we were waiting for a long time yesterday hoping that it would arrive it was not forthcoming now it's important to clarify what this document means now it's a formal notice essentially that federal migration services is considering his bid and it is officially in process what that gives edward snowden is close to three months to move about freely in the country until he gets that document in his hands
6:04 am
he cannot leave on them is now after that three months that's when the final decision from federal migration services will come through if it is a favorable decision on edward snowden's behalf he plans to settle. if not he also plans to appeal that decision that shows just how serious he is about actually settling here now everyone expected to snowden would use russia as as a transit point to another country but just a little while after he landed here from hong kong when he didn't appear on a flight to cuba. people people looked at that very suspiciously wondering what was up well there was a lot of fear that any plane he boarded would that be grounded by the u.s. government in an attempt to catch him this is a cat and mouse game with the media at this point we don't know if he will if he. if it will be made obvious to us and if you will then come out and maybe give us a couple of comments or even a press conference if you could also sneak out a side door and hop on the train into downtown moscow so you can bet today tomorrow
6:05 am
and over the weekend and even next week the journalists here are waiting with bated breath to see if edward snowden does emerge from this airport with documents in hand. washington has warned russia against letting snowden out of the airport rephrasing demands of his extradition but most could dismiss that saying the u.s. routinely ignores russia's calls for the exclusion of individuals wanted on charges as serious as terrorism and if sent host snowden could be tried for espionage for revealing the scope and details of america's surveillance program and he's going to check on explains obama's war whistleblowers leaves little doubt as to what would happen. by relentlessly going after whistleblowers here we picked some of the most notable ones the us government is sending a message this is what's going to happen to you if you speak out even if you think you're doing it for the public good even if the public things you did the right thing in edward snowden's case fifty five percent of americans consider him
6:06 am
a whistleblower not a traitor and yet even as many americans are thinking to snowden for greater awareness about the government's blatant snooping on millions of absolutely innocent people snowden still had to flee the country so was not to share the fate of his fellow whistleblowers had he state he would have been in jail facing life in prison or maybe even the death penalty the example of bradley manning is right there the twenty five year old u.s. army private bradley manning has been in custody for three years now and is facing more than one hundred fifty years in jail many leaked documents and videos that exposed war crimes committed by the u.s. the military judge has recently ruled that mending still has to face the most serious charge the charge of aiding the enemy despite many claims that he's sole intent was to make the public more aware of the cost of war the human cost another whistleblower former cia analyst john king also thought he was doing the right thing when he spoke about the cia's torture practices and became the first
6:07 am
government official who confirmed waterboarding at one time to get out who was the head of the cia's counterterrorism operations in pakistan father of five get out who is now in jail serving his two and a half years sentence former n.s.a. employees william binney and thomas drake were very close to jail time after they separately blew the whistle on the government's massive surveillance program which they saw as ineffective an illegal they were both indicted on the espionage act needless to say their careers were destroyed edward snowden's revelations of only confirmed would be drake had been saying for years but possibly unlike binney and drake snowden has also made public indisputable proof of the existence of the programs i had the chance to interview three of these men john kiriakou william binney and thomas drake they talked to me about what it's like being targeted by the u.s. government take a listen to your in itself is control. and what people will do when they're fearful as they were you will begin to censor themselves so much of what's happening now
6:08 am
particular my case it sent it extraordinarily chilling message that anybody and i was a senior executive the government had a very high position and say it sends it extraordinarily chilling message that if you speak out if you speak up we're going to hammer you and we're going to hammer you hard because look what we did to mr drake i never believed i would be going to prison under a president obama never. that's been i think my biggest disappointment the classified documents that daniel ellsberg leaked four decades ago revealed that the u.s. government had lied about the vietnam war and those revelations contributed to the erosion of public support for the war daniel ellsberg was the first whistle blower who was charged under the espionage act the government went after him with all he had wiretapped him without a court warrant broke into his therapist's office trying to find something to discredit him with the judge dismissed all charges against ellsberg due to the
6:09 am
gross government misconduct and illegal evidence gathering today daniel ellsberg stands in support of all these whistleblowers arguing had he been charged today he would have most probably gone to jail in washington i'm going to check out. while the n.s.a. has secured its right to monitor a cell phone and internet activities by the minute thanks to being congressional votes the age of six lanes to a lot chris also is to sift through the emails of its own employees. at our website to find out how a simple freedom of information act request led to a bustling discovery that the n.s.a. is unable to track its own internal communications that story and much more at altitude a call for you. know

6:11 am
including the largest group of al nusra al nusra fighters or radical anti-american geodes and they're affiliated with al qaeda. but your politicians in washington are eager to send weapons they promised these weapons won't get into the hands of the enemy i don't believe it does anyone believe that how could we ask our brave young men and women to fight against al qaeda in some countries and with al qaeda in other countries. and of course we're keeping an eye on the situation in syria as well as the international reaction so little to a website called if you will normally including the most recent updates pictures and witness and accounts. the european court of human rights has ruled the conviction of russia's full well oiled tycoon mikhail khodorkovsky was not politically motivated well there was once russia's richest man

a new front in its struggle to deal with illegal immigration violence carrying signs immigrants to seek free advice on how to go to appear on the streets of london and this isn't the first initiative like this the fight against immigration begins beyond britain's scholz a previous advertising campaign aimed to stress the negative parts of life in britain hoping to turn off potential immigrants from the e.u. from november a pilot scheme will see those who do arrive from countries deemed high risk have to pay a three thousand pound bomb to earn to britain to be returned only when they leave and here are some questions from the new citizenship test which comes into force this week and for sizing the u.k.'s history and culture for anyone determined to stay on his test aasia looks at whether multiculturalism is working. this is barking and dagenham one of six london boroughs where vans with massive billboards like the one behind me with a message go home or face arrest will be driving around london in the next week

6:23 am
that i told british and something that i'm absolutely convinced the vast majority but you probably would not put up with that it's not the fault of the immigrants is the fault of the government for letting them in the control over the great britain should be controlled by our parliament they should not be controlled by the european union we also spoke with the migrant rights network to see how this might impact communities and what kind of reaction it could get from illegal immigrants and the locals alike and this has chosing very diverse areas of london to drive design around and what they will do is actually create suspicion of immigrant communities people who might. or another and we think the government should be trying to be promoting good community relationship rather than trying to to be stoking of fear within communities and all of this falling under an active push by the government to make britain more difficult and

6:26 am
war your boy there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from. mysterious extra planets trip killian creatures living among us but there also may conspiracy theories that are very plausible and some that are well actually true one that i've heard for a long time is that they are specifically trying to fool the police with dimwits to abuse the american people which is silly right right according to a.b.c. news a discrimination lawsuit revealed that robert jordan was denied the chance to become a new london police officer because he was too smart his entrance exam score was a thirty three which is an i.q. of one hundred twenty five and it was just too high to allow him to defend the public good that police department only accepts candidates who have scores from twenty to twenty seven the logic is that people who are too smart get bored as policemen and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah this
6:27 am
is proof of a conspiracy theory well the lowest score of the accept is still around an average i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with subpar people but it does seem really weird to fear people with high i.q.'s entering the police force this case to have a confirms nor denies the conspiracy theory but is definitely food for thought and does a kind of not make sense to discriminate against anyone ever for having a high i.q. i don't know but that's just my opinion. this
6:28 am
