both at home and i'm owed a motion to cover six of us has wells blanks in the house of representatives by a narrow margin of only twelve votes if approved it would have the n.s.a. from listening to every phone call made by a us phone the vote has exposed a major split within both republicans and democrats and my colleague discuss this decision on ways to protect public privacy with paid down and he's the only one of the internet service providers was denied n.s.a. surveillance requests. i think that the 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 now what about this amendment is it more about party politics and trying to embarrass obama than generally really trying to protect people's interests. well i. hope that something good is

coming out of washington but you know i'm certainly. there's a lot of that going on and i want to put it past the republican party for trying to do that but 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 stop. the man who unveiled the speaking program is facing espionage charges if he steps on american soil the history of a bomb is when whistle blowers leaves little doubt that in this case edward snowden could end up at best heading down the path of his fellow leakers she's been educated counter. by relentlessly going after whistleblowers here we picked some of the most notable ones the u.s. government is sending
10:04 am
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 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 stayed 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 and
10:05 am
other 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 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 kids 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 a. in the globe needless to say their careers were destroyed edward snowden's revelations have only confirmed would be me and drake had been saying for years but possibly unlike binny 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.
10:06 am
government take a listen if you're in itself is control and what people do when they're fearful as they were be will begin to censor themselves so much of what's happening now particular my case it sent it extraordinarily chilling message that anybody 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
10:07 am
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 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. washington is still bottling for the extradition of edward snowden has been stranded in a moscow airport for more than a month emphasis and arriving from hong kong has applied for asylum in russia and is waiting for paperwork allowing him to finally leave this kind of state of limbo . brings us the latest from outside the airport 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
10:08 am
anatoly cucina did say the paperwork that he needs that would allow him to officially exits the airport and enter russia is is still not here now it's a formal notice essentially that federal migration service is 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 he cannot leave 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 here if not he also plans to appeal that decision that shows just how serious he is 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 looked at that very suspiciously wondering what was up this is a cat and mouse game with the media at this point we don't know if he will if he if
10:09 am
he does get that documentation 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 he could also sneak out a side door and hop on that train into downtown moscow so you can bet today tomorrow 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. turns out that america's surveillance agency whose time takes were exposed by this former contractor is not as organized as it seems find out why the n.s.a. which is greenlighted to spy on the whole world killed trying what's happening in his own backyard all that. and also later attorneys an opposition leader has been shot dead protests one hundred forty maybe even sponsored by a second such assassination this year with thousands clashing with police as they marched on the interior ministry. post so

10:11 am
this is problematic on multiple levels the assad regime is no friend of freedom or the united states but this does not mean that the enemy of our enemy is our friend there are currently seventeen different rebel groups in syria 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 oh 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. ninety x. was thinking last minute tree is about has a ready made iraq a failed state terror bombings and gunfire bring the number of killed in the

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 this is the latest attempt of the u.k. a home office to would deal with illegal immigration in the country they say they want to encourage a voluntary leaving of the country and i would also advertise a number that can be texted by immigrants to ask for help and how to leave the country on their own accord now the home office says that voluntary rich returns are the most cost effective way of dealing with illegal immigration with about twenty eight thousand departures last year and the immigration officer minister mark harper had said of the message essentially is that there is an alternative to being led away in handcuffs however this program has received a lot of criticism we have spoken with the david coburn of the u.k. independence party we're awfully horrified i mean this is like. the nazis going

around was so good to talk with crocs it's dreadful it's discriminatory it's unpleasant it makes the country luke extremely unpleasant indeed and not something 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 collecting them in the control of the great britain should be controlled by our parliament and 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. because of london to drive design around and what it will do is actually create suspicion of immigrant communities and people who might look for in one way or another and we think the government should be trying to be promoting good community relationship rather than trying to be
10:20 am
stoking up fear within communities and all of this for when under an active push by the government to make britain more difficult and as has been reported a more hostile environment to unwanted immigrants reporting from london i'm tess are cilia. and liberal democrat councillor for evening john both things the campaign is just an attempt to score political points. it's totally inappropriate to have these vans going around stirring up problems between the different different communities so my view as a is that they ought to be removed from the streets immediately i think the intended audience for these is not illegal immigrants the intended audience is right wing voters who the conservatives want to retain as conservative voters rather than going to ukip so i think this is totally about domestic u.k.
10:21 am
politics rather than a serious attempt to to deal with issues relating to illegal immigrants so you know i think it's not coincidental that these these posters came out when the during the summer when the relevant liberal democrat ministers who would have been involved in the sign off process weren't around i think this is something which the conservatives are doing as i say for their own party political purposes. the next installment of greece's bailout was a wolf in two and a hollow billion euros is being held back by its international creditors until a last piece of legislation passes through the greek parliament that involves transferring and possibly sacking thousands of public sector workers it's not the first time athens has agreed to make cannes despite unemployment increasing dramatically the global financial crisis hit greece five years ago when less than one in ten people that didn't have a job but that number has skyrocketed and now more than

a recent study by the university of the saloniki over one hundred twenty thousand professionals including scientists have left greece since two thousand and ten and as the troika continues pressing athens with the new austerity measures in exchange for financial aid the potentially catastrophic brain drain the country's experiencing is either being unnoticed or deliberately ignored you go to school of athens greece. and a former greek and even occasionally believes her country has been cornered by its international lenders and has no hope of paying back the huge amount of money. nobody believes that citi hundred billion would be a viable so the money being spent to the rates and playing golf. as you know money again. or being invested in greece or the girls that after a few years. they are everything going to be all over open so
