official date. was the bloodiest month in iraq since two thousand and eight of the country's prime minister. to help. the peace process and. drug treatment as an. kills the leader of the pakistani taliban who was apparently prepared to negotiate. over a lot of the populace that makes your paranoid. protesters a critic. designed. as a way to actually legalize the data collection of millions.
4:01 am
this is a lie from moscow with me rule received from everybody here the news team welcome to the program. has it become the bloodiest month in iraq in five years and the data from the country's interior health ministry the death toll that about nine hundred sixty four people ninety percent approximately of them being civilians now according to the government the number hasn't been this high since april two thousand and eight when more than one thousand were killed so the numbers don't quite correspond with the findings of the u.n. which puts july as the bloodiest this year but whatever the figures it's clear the country is facing an increasing security problem perhaps no surprise then that the iraqi prime minister is in washington for help. reports. we know that the rocky leadership has made a request for u.s. assistance in the fight against terror we don't know the details of that request
4:02 am
the leaders wouldn't elaborate on that the iraqi prime minister called al qaida a scourge for iraq and the middle east the iraqi prime minister has arrived in washington in the month that turned out to be the deadliest in the last five years for those who are following the news it's becoming such a repetitive phrase the deadliest month in iraq for this many years said we we hear it all the time the fact is that following the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three terrorism has skyrocketed in iraq the six carrion war that broke out as a result of the invasion has created a great environment for terrorists the iraqi prime minister says it's getting worse because he says as a result of the so-called arab revolutions there is a power vacuum in the region which extremist forces take advantage of it specifically spoke about syria and the situation there of course even though iraq's nouri al maliki knows what the u.s. invasion has led to in his country he can't be too critical of washington because after all in a way it's thanks to the u.s. that he's now in power he's got an agent you can write the political analyst she
4:03 am
want to allow says the level of violence is actually spiked all across the middle east. prime minister of iraq one he made that call i think what he means by it is providing intelligence. and support to because he fears that the spillover from syria is affecting the level of violence in iraq and the level of violence in iraq as a whole has increased because of that but the reality is the politics of iraq is broken and the violence is is a result of that is not only because iraqi army's weak it's just because the. iraqi politics as a whole is dysfunctional that hasn't worked for the last ten years so. i don't think what's going on in iraq is going to be a risk to the global sort of risk but obviously it's going to be rich to oil markets in the around the world is going to be a risk to the region as the middle east iran and what's going on in syria i mean this could turn sort of this ball from syria and then to iraq and then it can you

never know what is going to stop. the pakistani taliban has vowed to avenge the death of its leader who was killed in a u.s. drone strike and pakistani officials say the assassination has derailed the peace talks with the militants a short while ago here on c i spoke with islamic based journalist with the latest. security has gone and there is a lot of security in major cities off pakistan in the heart. because of course so far the statements from the government have been very grim and leaders have been saying that this is being and them to sabotage the peace talks between pakistan's government and the taleban interior minister of pakistan he has stated that only david for yesterday was talking about peace talks and they were almost underway right now against today's event of another drone strike that.
4:05 am
country is again a conflict as to what should be the next step what to expect from the taliban as far as the government by stars government is concerned the strike strongly condemned this attack and they are expecting to. continue with the start but so far it seems. so far it's at a dead end and it's difficult to say right now what would be the next step because there would be a blood shoot from the taliban and the security is heightened in the sound and everyone is just in anticipation as to what would be the next move. while u.s. and pakistani officials were recently praising the way bilateral relations were developing this latest drone strike will likely tarnish the trend and probably lead to even more killing that's according to a peace activist knew what i mean. this is an absolute defiance of. on behalf of
4:06 am
the u.s. government of what in the washer you've had explicitly stated was necessary for a pox on to take the matter into its own hands and this just seems to be a slap on the face to say your peace talks really do not mean anything to us and it seems to be the us stating that it wants absolutely nothing to do with the pakistani government's stance on this so we see over aggression in terms of in terms of where we could be heading our thanks for joining us here on our two as we come to you live from moscow talk about taking a bite out of a problem europe's on a high alert over a recent rabies outbreak in france all of me fears that it could actually spill right over the border. we know so. we've put ourselves at risk still to come here on r.t. we take a look into how the u.k. is or thought he was a handling disease prevention with many vets arguing that taking their eyes off the ball. when on the program the u.s.

senate committee has passed a bill to rein in the n.s.a. following the revelations of leaker edward snowden critics say the measure could actually have exactly the opposite effect. senator feinstein's bill is an effort to codified the n.s.a.'s bulk collection of americans telephone records which is in fact on shaky legal footing right now and there's another program that's being legalized in this bill which has not gotten as much attention as it really should which is the back door searches of international communications and so what has been happening is that the n.s.a. is allowed under the files and limits act to go collect huge amounts of communications of people who are suspected to be foreigners overseas without any individual warrant because they are foreigners overseas what ends up happening is the n.s.a. scoops up a lot of communications between people overseas and americans and also ends up scooping a lot of purely domestic communications of americans into that pile as well these
4:08 am
are all communications americans communications that the n.s.a. would need an individualized order court order or warrant to look at under ordinary circumstances and another sign of you have a growing reach of the national security agency is the brand new utah data center but it's called the eye of a crowd of persistent protesters who've now taken over a part of a local highway to demonstrate their outrage at the civilians more important to the story known for its desert climate and picturesque mountain. utah has long been home to the nation's largest population of new orleans today it's also home to america's soon to be biggest spy complex they put it inside of the middle of an army base so you can you have to about be protesting the army to protest the n.s.a. . damn garfield learned his lesson on independence day when police prohibited more than one hundred restore the fourth activists from protesting in front of the
4:09 am
n.s.a.'s one point five billion dollar data center. shortly thereafter the group thought of a way to claim a two mile long stake right next to the n.s.a. they keep on trying to kick us out for being here why don't we just adopt a highway we can come in we can clean up in the coming weeks a picket sign will be placed right here that says we're store the poor you tom and for each day that employees report to work at the data center they will pass by this side reminded of the public distrust of the n.s.a. and its ever expanding surveillance programs r t four members will be required to clean the highway at least three times a year but many activists like lorraine a potter plan on being outside the data center much more often armed with an anti n.s.a. picket sign they believe that it is their place to take in harvest all of our information the fourth amendment to the us constitution guarantees the right to be secure from
4:10 am
unreasonable search and seizure r t four was born into a nationwide grassroots movement after whistleblower edward snowden revealed how the n.s.a. spies on its own citizens as well as foreigners world leaders and even the vatican we're never going to be able to reverse this if we don't speak up if we don't say something if we don't get people aware of what's being done so what's being done inside the utah data center according to reports the surveillance complex will be filled with servers routers and computer intelligence experts working to intercept capture and analyze vast quantities of the world's communication. there are other extra buildings back there the secrets inside the data center are heavily protected by fences the national guard and countless warning signs that overlooks the whole valley and it kind of is almost like
4:11 am
a symbolic overwatch of the populace it makes your paranoid. artsy. there are some though that are taking measures right into their own hands in a bid to beat the n.s.a. by creating an innovative new spy proof platform phillip zimmermann the president and co-founder of silent circle explains how his company aims to curb e-mail surveillance through the encryption of data we're trying to restore the privacy that we feel that has been lost by pervasive surveillance email is intercepted by intelligence agencies all around the world and we've discovered through these snowden revelations that. our own government is spying on its own citizens who it's turned all americans into foreigners as if we were. you know intelligence targets we can make everything surveillance proof but what we can do is try to

reduce the amount of exposure of e-mail metadata that's the data that says what the man who it's from who we date and time and these days the method data and the mail header is is really important for being able to surveil a society and see who's talking to who. and in the meantime the controversy continues over the people who allowed the revelations to be revealed to the world it comes to light the reason the partner of journalist glenn greenwald was held at heathrow airport in the summer was because the british authorities claimed that he was involved in terrorism and espionage another statement was disclosed during a court hearing earlier david miranda filed a legal action against the british government seeking the return of his possessions on a review of the legality of his detention and nine hour questioning among the things common skated were materials supplied by edward snowden which of dorothy's said could endanger people's lives if released greenwald lambasted the claims in an

it's a busy day for you thanks for joining us today ukraine's gearing up to sign a landmark partnership deal with the european union at the end of november it would guarantee the former soviet republic free trade access to the blocs markets but is the country's a massive car industry ready to take up the task. when to invest. entering the association agreement with the e.u. is being sold to the crane in public as a step forward and while indeed the country's farmers might enjoy better export deals with a projected four hundred million euros annual profit the machinery bosses are not so happy the country's factories might simply not be able to afford modernizing to e.u. standards that would cost almost a staggering one hundred thirty billion euros and that would repeat the fate of the industrial giants who have already been caught in that trap hungary's bus factory it was the leader in public bus production throughout nineteen seventies europe producing more than fourteen thousand buses

treated france's warning has raised concerns across europe forcing health officials to use elaborate ways to prevent further outbreaks but as all these are now reports vets in the u.k. claim the government is actually underestimating the threat. nowadays every man and his dog can travel to the u.k. can you imagine the price of every friendly animal you meet imagine rabies in britain back when this public information video was made westminster's fear of rabies was so high that any animal coming into the country had to enjoy six months in quarantine first rabies is a killer we must keep rabies out but the rules were relaxed last year when britain was forced to join the european union's pet travel scheme. it's a bit like the razor system these dogs have come a lot from brazil them bob way vietnam in thailand they all need to be quarantined upon entry to the u k but pets coming in from europe and some other countries are
4:22 am
exempt all they need is a pet possible and a microchip. since the scheme started there has been seven hundred fifty one cases of rabies in animals in romania and three hundred ninety five in poland the latest case of the disease was in holland and there was no longer the requirement for a blood test on a six month wait which means that the doc can be vaccination be within the u.k. within three weeks which bears no resemblance to the integration period easy's actually those who work with animals say that angry at the government's failure to challenge the e.u. directive and safeguard the u.k. in saudi where you're looking at everything europe that seems to say we seem to have to we're not protecting ourselves we seem to decide in the slot sights and sounds we've put ourselves at risk this pictures owners take her in and out of the u.k. on a regular basis this is what her e.u. pet possible looks like but campaign to say that less so easy to forge the number

of dogs being smuggled into the u.k. illegally has increased by food hundred percent since the rules were relaxed. the dog can be brought into the country going to a hog and mix in the park with other dogs if such there was a carrier they expose policy known to other animals then you've got an outright travel for it cools absolute devastation the department for environment food in rural affairs says the risk of a dog with rabies entering the u.k. is still extremely low but animal charities disagree several have already said that they're stocking up on rabies vaccines in order to protect the star. r.t. london's on the british banking system going down the drain that's according to max carson. it's all in a day's work for this woman she opens up a manhole cover and sounds just much slower because she can buy what she finds as
4:24 am
you see she was pulling the gutter oil straight out of the sewer and then processing and giant vats of toxins and chemicals in order to create the gutter oil there's an analogy here between converting these sewer garbage that slop into reprocess to bits available as a combustible or yes on the street with the slump in the financial system so they take credit they take collateral that's been abused and has been sold down and resold hundreds of times and they put it on the balance sheet of the bank of england and the bank of england exchanges fresh slop me in the form of guilt which is then the collateral upon which the housing bubble in london is based and if you were to examine the balance sheet of the bank of england you would find the process pork slop and gutter slop and oil and all kinds of dog bar bit on the. you know fill in whatever it is.

twelve or twenty five pm on saturday here in moscow up next an hour to you can find out what happens when a filmmaker takes on a giant food corporation but for all of us in london it comes on you program going on the ground we come to you live from moscow. the office of civil rights in the city of seattle washington has told city employees that certain terms may not be used in official emails and discussions scoring to google fox news these terms would be brown bag and citizen ninety nine percent of americans when they hear the expression brown bag think of taking a nice healthy lunch you know in a brown paper bag to work with themselves but in politically correct insanity land
4:26 am
these words are obvious for mind of the days when a person's skin color was compared to a brown paper bag to determine race well if any were even remotely linked to an incident of racism needs to be banned then we've got to get rid of the word blanket because they gave the native americans disease till blankets to kill them and they block their land with beads so we've got to get rid of that word to remember the separate drinking fountains and segregated buses based on race in america yes so we can't say those words anymore either only might just possibly remember something bad which could lead to the ultimate horror of the modern western world unpleasant thoughts we see a lot of western countries the term citizen becoming offensive because it makes resident foreigners legal or illegal feel like second class people well compared to actual citizens legally you kind of are if you're offended that you are not treated as a citizen of seattle why not assimilate become a citizen the united states join the team but that's just my opinion.
4:27 am
it's not to say that you'll story isn't given the fan voice and given fact coverage from your perspective but it's something that they have got better relationships with the press than you do and they'd be stupid is appealing for them not to be using those to their advantage. i know it is but i'm up. the machines employing scare tactics need to control p.r. spin and dirty tricks these lobbying and public relation firms provide a variety of services among the services that some of these firms provide is to actually plant opinion pieces or what we call op ed in american newspapers. they have people on staff who do nothing but sit around all day and write up an opinion piece then they'll go out to a think tank or to a university and recruit someone there with
4:28 am
a big name to put their name on the piece and then they will plant the piece in an american newspaper when we got the opposition and saw this david ginsburg declaration i was personally surprised he's in the l.a. copyright society an organization i was president of one time and i remember when we admitted him into the society and and that's a group of people who are primarily defense oriented you know representing filmmakers defending against these kind of claims so so why did don't bring in. david ginsburg provided a declaration in which he basically summarizes the film and sort of agrees with dole's characterizations of certain aspects of the film being false there is a paragraph in here that is sort of startling where he compares he or film to a world war two era propaganda film the classic example i will give here with relevance to the film dramatically and he's talking about your film goes back
4:29 am
decades to the nazi era anti-semitic film. the eternal jew so what he's doing here is he's equating your film to a propaganda piece that was trying to essentially justify the massacre of jews to go out in a list somebody and say we'll give you a script of what to say and will pay to say it and. i want to pay you in particular because you might be somebody known to be on the side of filmmakers so it'll be meaningful that you're turning against one of your own you know is is is really disappointing. money talks. the internet it seems. i found out that dole had bought my name on google whenever you googled my name and told would follow.
