observe would have done. it so kiss alexander told them whatever intelligence european agencies are sharing with the n.s.a. is from war zones again no way of checking any of that so what was that just a symbolic gesture on the part of the e.u. delegation to ask those questions well they definitely need to show european citizens that their representatives are not completely mute so they came to washington expressed a reserved indignation quite reserved and agreed to cooperate further we've seen it before a special intelligence committee launched a review into the u.s. surveillance experiences overseas and may even try to restrict them although this is something the n.s.a. chief is trying hard to prevent have a listen it is much more important for this country that we defend this nation and take the beatings and it is to give up
6:04 am
a program that would result in this nation being attacked. on this and should shows there's little chance the u.s. will give up wiretapping says american political analyst eric draitser. to intrust the scene bureaucrats like clapper and others who have been caught lying publicly on the record to congress and to other policymakers and officials about the nature of these programs about what the united states is doing about its very operations in the most public sense of the word and so we are to intrust these people with some kind of an internal review it is laughable it is just about as laughable as wall street banks regulating themselves. nor details on the chicken eggs the n.s.a. uses are being revealed a report in the washington post shows the agency has been harvesting huge tros of data from google and yahoo by breaking into their communications links they say
6:05 am
leaked catch from an internal presentation shows how the n.s.a. intercepts google traffic by tapping into the company's data cables millions of records are collected and this way on a daily basis as part of a program code named muscular and as you can see the n.s.a. engineers seem to enjoy what they're doing if this my face is anything to go by. and the man who started the whole scale and all around the n.s.a. edward snowden seems to have found a job in russia find out what sort of work you'll be doing in around ten minutes time. matter how hard the u.s. government is working on the mending the shock of image of the gone time about countering the flow of criticism continues to pour down on the infamous facility and you were appalled by a u.s. based human rights group has found systematic violations of the science and called for its immediate closure and are seizing the citric and i went to gun tunnel day to see and his have

a. every morning at eight am the u.s. national anthem erupts across the beast that holds america's most scandalous prison no one likes to be spit on no one wants to have their own on torture hunger strikes and suicides have marred this place since two thousand and two and they're human beings after all they're there's no reason to expect that they enjoy being here you know we pretend otherwise prisoners held indefinitely in the name of the never ending war on terror whether they're innocent or guilty is not our job right now we have the court system determined that in just over a decade a total of seven hundred seventy nine prisoners the majority released without charges today one hundred sixty four remain over half of them cleared for release but still kept locked up. on the other side of the barbed wire. life is a blast. there is water and it's nice. and i here
6:07 am
just like any common american town now is awfully scared to come here but i mean it's absolutely beautiful place and you get around all the other stuff getting around the other stuff is not hard a lot of what goes on here is kept under a thick veil of denial and secrecy delta house is a hospital and library and this is also a place where patients are force fed and even though the hunger strike is largely and officially said to be over we know that at least fifteen people are continually being force fed here today a tube is passed down through a person's nostril and pushed all the way down to their stomach before it's passed down the nose we lubricate it and we give the patient a choice do they want to have the key which is agent to numb the area or if they want to lubricate the tube. most of our patients have been using all of the will. in fact some of our patients
6:08 am
are so used to this they will. described which nostril they want this while major world medical bodies are in agreement that force feeding is not ethical and should not be practiced the force feeding them i've got my clients have experienced at one time or they've certainly described this torture the restraint chair that they're strapped into they actually call the torture chair an arabic force feeding takes up to forty five minutes and is performed twice a day the patients that had the civilian world have said it feel strange i've never heard of. i have not heard that good move fishes are beyond nonchalant about the highly criticized practice you might feel differently from the way i might feel uncomfortable has been the most of it i have heard but they don't even believe in what they're saying anyway because they know it sounds stupid i volunteer that the procedure be demonstrated on me request a client the prisoners who've not met one another and speak different languages keep saying the same thing that we were tortured fused. to the chair legs
6:09 am
to the ground they. struck across and they forced in a tube into our noses never in thirteen years have detainees been allowed to speak directly to a journalist while remaining at get most only leaking statements through lawyers they would love nothing more than to sit down with journalists and just tell them you know about their daily lives but communicating seems to only occur here if someone was it a point where maybe they had been verbalizing a lot of hopelessness we were immediately intervening and trying to assist that person to make sure that there wasn't any thoughts of maybe wanting to harm themselves or in their lives with charts like these often used to pinpoint patients despair you asked them how do you feel right now and they'll be able to point to it we have not had a patient in this area. thank heavens meanwhile six suicides and dozens of suicide
6:10 am
attempts have taken place at the detention facility we haven't seen any autopsies the u.s. government hasn't released any formal reports or findings we're now outside two active camps at guantanamo camp five old single cells where the so-called less compliant detainees are held camp number six is one filled with communal cells when officials deem that detainees have behaved better there will be warded by being allowed to live in groups while detainees are kept away from us what we witness are clean empty prison cells with cozy pajamas colgate toothpaste and maximum security shampoos paraded in front of journalists as proof everything is so much better here than any silly horror stories we all have heard and. one ton of cuba. another scandal about the balance of the prison last week james connell the noir of amman accused of aiding the nine eleven attacks has claimed his client now suffers from major health problems after he was tortured by the cia and he. immediately
6:11 am
upon being transferred to guantanamo bay mr obuchi went to the medical staff and complained that he had suffered a head injury while in cia custody nothing was done to follow up on that there's no investigation into someplace else told military commissions there's no investigation into the possibility of a federal civilian court there are still a significant number of people who are on hunger strike at guantanamo bay who are being force fed and sometimes hospitalized the most important question is the silencing of the defendants that they can't tell anyone whether that's the un special rapporteur on torture or members of congress and their staff who are investigating the issue they can't tell anyone about what happened to them in cia custody that's what we're challenging because if we can break the silence on that question there could be real movement on guantanamo bay. this is all see and common to progress by by bailout. the number one priority would be to make
6:12 am

a bit earlier. isn't that right. well it certainly is what we're hearing now from an official inside the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons is that damascus has destroyed all equipment that is used for producing mixing and filling chemical weapons this comes a day ahead of the agreed november first deadline and it is a major achievement in an extremely tight and ambitious disarmament program the foreign inspectors who have been inside the country for several weeks now have visited twenty one out of twenty three chemical weapons stockpile sites now the reason given as to why they could not go to two of those sites is because it was simply too dangerous there's been no commitment from the rebels fighting that they will ensure the safety of these inspectors but we have been told that these stockpiles at those two sites will move to sites that the inspectors did in fact investigate the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons he says it is
6:15 am
extremely satisfied with the way this disarmament program has gone ahead and that all is on track for the final deadline which is the middle of next year by the way in syria would have destroyed all of its chemical weapons stockpiles right but despite today's news we still hear that there are rock chemical weapons still in use or more can tell us about. what we are hearing reports that rebels used chemical weapons in an attack in the north east of the country near the turkish border this happened near a check post for kurdish defense forces and they say that they still hear no smoke immediately after a shell exploded some of those kurdish defense forces are suffering from the symptoms of chemical inhalation and nausea now the russian foreign ministry is calling for an investigation saying that it is extremely worrying that this incident has not received widespread coverage. right off she's
