5:06 pm
understand forms from boston you know from a lot of countries because the country it was very much. after the evolution and this happens in many who shows when you don't. grip of the central government becomes very weak so this area began to be very active and at heaven for. especially most sinai which is the poorest governor waiting for egypt and this is also the most populated part in sinai the population of sinai is a hundred and seventy thousand in the most sinai c. one hundred thousand and the south sinai you have seventy thousand and all the thought is is between the center and the most now in the last three years the world many complains by the egyptian army. operation and those companies that not succeed very well for many reasons one of them is that when president morsi who comes from
5:07 pm
an organization that's supposed to isn't. came to power he released many of the. terrorists who were in jail in sinai and despite that they are ideologically different from the muslim brotherhood. the popular uprising that click to who. was not welcomed by. a lot and it's made a bell you know now what about the timing or why it's anti terror operation now the why is the egyptian army doing it now it's this side of desperation maybe on their side is it because. they're trying to quash any political opposition or is it simply something that was planned anyway and was going to happen what she what are your thoughts on the timing of it. of course after you know the egyptian people on the cities of june made a big second we've lucian and we have to. present the most he and his group because

tomorrow after the break to give the mainstream media more of a bruising in late edition of breaking this enjoying. boy oh boy there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there from mysterious extra planets drip kilian 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 fill 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
5:29 pm
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 policeman and they're more likely to quit after years of costly training. yeah this is proof of a conspiracy. theory well the lowest score they accept is still around an average i.q. so that doesn't mean they're specifically trying to fill the place with sub par 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.
