wanted he is remarkably sort of at peace with everything he's a manager considerable pressure i must assume but he doesn't show it he is. he's feeling like he did what he set out to do when he when he says that he's accomplished his mission what he means is that he's taking. a very important subject out secret world and and it to the public so that people can decide for themselves where they want to draw the lines instead of having to draw the lines drawn for them. and in the car in the article you mention that when interviewing him his guard never really dropped which i thought was interesting considering you're saying that he was remarkably calm and whatnot i mean did you get the sense that he was sort of constantly worrying work concerned at all about his future which is basically unknown at this point. he doesn't project concern about his future he is what i mean by that he didn't drop his guard is that he has boundaries
8:05 pm
for one thing he's a very private person you understand that he is in the news that he has done something very much newsworthy he wants the news to be about the policy the subject the documents themselves he isn't see that he's got any obligation to talk about his personal life and he has natural security concerns so it pays attention to what he said so as not it is not the only one delivering a christmas message on liberty a u.s. civil rights group say to releasing a comedy of easier of santa poking fun at the n.s.a. well should now. with less than a week to twenty four seen a wear something out of the most pivotal news of the outgoing year. and in the latest in our series they probably won't drone warfare in the middle east america's near decade long presence in pakistan has left numerous victims of

8:07 pm
with them lost their lives we live in constant fear of another strike we are simple villagers who are stuck in a war that we didn't ask for it's a hopeless feeling to be death is above our heads all the time although the attack took place three years ago i mean new laws says the pain is still severe the sight of his injuries upsets his four children meanwhile depression and anxiety and lingering fear have pushed him to take up tranquilizer pills and modify that in the same arrogance should be able to tell an ordinary person from a television leader what they should know who they're killing what did we do to deserve this. this isn't my ex any grown arctic it's a question echoed by now dar who lost part of his hearing a short term memory and nearly his foot when. the drone shockwave was so intense that it threw us outside far from the place where we were sleeping after several minutes there was another strike and it killed many more people attorneys out of

bar has sued both the u.s. and pakistan on behalf of the civilian victims he says they're the voiceless people of the zeerust on isolated by geography and politics simply call it a concentration camp that you have build a wall of. military and militants and behind that wall you keeping more than eight hundred thousand people who are not allowed to come out and no one from the rest of the country is allowed to go in and that's a kind of tree which u.s. is using to use and test its drone program in many ways the epicenter of the cia's highly classified drone program is a black hole on the map a region of pakistan off limits to outsiders especially westerners now evidence of the drone strikes is almost impossible to get but these were smuggled to islamic bought from the tribal areas they're believed to be fragments of actual hellfire missiles retrieved from a war zone most americans never get to see the fragments collected by norbu
8:09 pm
a local journalist who spent years documenting the civilian toll of drones especially on children just images of the living and the dead for nor it's personal . to me whenever my three year old daughter hears a plane she runs inside and won't sleep that night the children here have been traumatized by the drones the sound of a door banging shot is enough to terrify them. and that fear can turn to anger a new generation radicalized by the war by carrying out drone strikes killing innocent people who are not part of the conflict you're just why did the conflict. giving a reason to people who were not part of the conflict to become part of the. of course this is make me hate the americans we're angry and want revenge they've destroyed our lives my parents my wife my children we all see america as our worst enemy now while promising to rein in their use the white house says drones are both legal and effective. on.

8:25 pm
a sham it is not a real political process because you cannot have a political process when you are losing something like twenty thirty people a day this is a civil war the fault of the end of the day must lie with the government because the government any government anywhere has a duty to protect the people has a duty to protect the society has a duty to make the life of the ordinary people talk a lot of all at least and this is what this government is failing in iraq has suffered its worst year of violence since two thousand and eight of the nine thousand people lost their lives there together with the investigative group iraq body count has a database that gives me the stark numbers documenting the deaths and the time that our ravaging the country it's all that.

8:27 pm
robertson who got suspended for making what many consider anti homo sexual comments in an interview this celebrity scandal is creating a lot of arguments about freedom of speech on social networks many people who believe that robertson deserved to be booted from the show for what he said argue that freedom of speech means that robertson can't be arrested by the government for what he said but the any t.v. channel has the right to fire whom they like the thing is that if the situation were reversed and robertson was fired for making pro l.g. p.t. statements then people who are currently defending any right to hire and fire as they please would all be bashing the t.v. channel for violating the stars freedom of speech think cry that firing him would violate his rights and i'm sure some websites would make him into a hero or demand a boycott or closing of a n.d. forever very few people actually believe in freedom of speech for all they just believe in freedom of speech for people who agree with them but that's just my opinion.
8:28 pm
do we speak your language or not a day of. school music programs and documentaries in spanish more matters to you breaking news a little turn a tip angles keep these stories. for you here. then try to teach spanish find out more visit i. did a lot of i think the place is. not even if you didn't then christopher as. this is the right place. they call it or. just these particular people we're working with you know fuck all that you know i was. anything. why would they work with these chemicals why would they not work with these kind of mold many of them for money yes and this needs to be said they do this for the money yeah but the i

8:30 pm
things do you not think that it is an interesting question to see if media around the world will do this and who will and when i'm still reading on thing one that is an interesting question if you can interesting question no today are too scared to publish your i think of the song to me and i don't know what the rest of knowing or even if they say it is there are many other great tears but miss ali what walk walk or what criteria are used to of an. interest newsworthiness know now that you can write a script every news organization that has a website as a web site developer who can just go. like that and they get free hits in google it is very very it is very very profitable to publish cables because you don't have to write cable it's free stories. the point as far as i see is that. there are.
