8:00 pm
unfortunately there is no sure objective news source anymore except aside from this . coming up on our t.v. and responds to n.s.a. spying brazil plans to create an internet link that tells them to rely on the u.s. the under water table would connect brazil to europe in hopes of avoiding u.s. surveillance of brazil's communications more and that just. days after days of clashes ukraine's future looks uncertain the nation remains divided in supporting the parliament's recent political changes after the removal of the nation's president a look at the situation in ukraine coming up. and our closest planetary neighbor mars has a surprise for us scientists have captured images suggesting that mars has water
8:01 pm
could this be a boost for humans hoping to live on mars and look at the red planet later in the show. it's tuesday february twenty fifth eight pm here in washington d.c. i'm liz wall and you're watching r.t. america. we begin tonight with a new fight against the n.s.a. snooping activities this one is bringing brazil and the european union together literally connecting the two regions of the globe the groups just announced an agreement in brussels to build an undersea communications cable these are these submarine cable cables that currently carry internet traffic around the world the proposed underwater route would look like this traveling under the depths of the ocean from lisbon portugal to ford elisa brazil the line would reduce the country's
8:02 pm
reliance on u.s. cables after word got out of that essay spying on international leaders including our allies brazilian president dilma rousseff has been vocal about respecting privacy rights here she is speaking about the issue yesterday. i believe is a policy that. will make everything and what it is i really should as you point out this photo we will be giving me as your contributions the idea was does that mean if you're going to be a human relations between. that cable is estimated to cost one hundred eighty five million dollars it's another example of the fallout after leaks from former n.s.a. contractor edward snowden revealing a massive government spying program i was joined earlier by political commentator sam sachs who fell the said on the latest with this underwater cable. there you can
8:03 pm
think of it as kind of a coalition of countries that are being spied on the u.s. has for a while been the chief administrator of the world wide web if you look at a lot of the traffic is carried through by u.s. tech companies a lot of the infrastructure those fiber optic cables that you show that carry the internet traffic around the world all of them run through the united states so the u.s. has been kind of this de facto. administrator of the internet which hasn't been a big problem for all these countries and the u.s. is was basically a pretty good. this was a good role for the united states which often preach openness in the internet and again censorship but since these n.s.a. disclosures it's completely reversed their role in the world is seen that the united states as well as its by buys partners the spying partners the u.k. australia new zealand canada have been abusing this role is in ministering the internet and they're spying on not just legitimate targets but entire domestic populations and so you see these countries that are members of the five eyes that have been spied upon like brazil that are trying to forge connections of their own
8:04 pm
to kind of carve the united states in other spying allies out of the world wide web yeah what they're upset about and we see that they're taking action i was doing some research on best and saw some people skeptical that this is really going to stop the n.s.a. from spying if they really wanted to could they intercept these lie and say if they if they wanted to get ahold of the information i mean if they spent millions of dollars on that a guarantee i mean you know they can intercept the launcher it's a lot easier of course to tap into a fiber optic cable right in your own backyard and that's where a lot of these cables were running in the united states we know that the u.k. is doing this a lot they're just cutting right into the cables that are running off the coast of the u.k. so if you know if huge amounts of data and sharing that with the n.s.a. and everyone but conceivably yeah the n.s.a. could send a submarine to the middle of the atlantic ocean find this new hundred eighty five million dollars cable or something they're building in top right into it and it's been documented going all the way back to the ninety's when the internet in these fiber optic cables started proliferate. around the world that the n.s.a.
8:05 pm
was experimenting with doing just doing exactly that the same sort of activity of going to the bottom of the ocean and putting in secret taps into these cables all places are heard all there i guess i want to ask you because we saw some some leaders speaking out against the spying n.s.a. spying and the revelations from former n.s.a. contractor edward snowden and beyond this building of a new this fiber optic cable are saying this is one step what are the other is some other steps that other countries are taking well we've heard leaders like dilma rousseff talk about completely walling off the internet within their own country so say i live in brazil and i have g. mail if i need if i need to access my g. mail my data automatically leaves brazil because google doesn't have any data centers in brazil it has to go to the nearest data center but brazil is talking about saying hey google if you want to do business with us in brazil you have to come to brazil and build these data centers so that people's data stays within the country so this could be the future you could see countries requiring these tech
8:06 pm
companies to build data centers within their countries so that they can better protect protect their citizens privacy but there are a lot of concerns what effect this could have on the internet the sort of balkanization breaking up of the internet you also see countries in the you putting up warning messages when people are on the internet if their dad is leaving the country and going somewhere that leaves it vulnerable to to n.s.a. spying so there's a lot of all other efforts that you see fundamentally challenging u.s. role in being the chief judge of you about that because it sounds like the data centers are an integrity part of the internet in the way it works throughout the world so how can these efforts that's five arac five or optic cable one of them among others that you mentioned how could it change the internet as we know it today will if if we're moving from a u.s. centric internet to a more decentralized global internet that in itself is a fundamental change in the way the internet has worked if tech companies now have
8:07 pm
to move. their data centers to compete for business in these other countries that are wary of n.s.a. spying that's going to require a lot of investment in a lot of cost up front change the way these tech companies are doing business and this kind of fractured balkanized internet is completely different than the free flowing internet that we're used to and that we've had it could present some new opportunities for people to better protect the privacy of their citizens and offer some new innovation within other countries and new tech companies are as up but also have some pitfalls as more repressive regimes could use the excuse of walling off their internet to spy on their own citizens to censor the internet as well so the kind of higher ground the u.s. had in promoting a free and open internet has been lost as a result is known as the revelations and it's kind of given these more authoritarian regimes a tool to put it back and put in more censorship interesting the internet times are a changing and i guess we'll see how allow this plays out thanks sam very interesting those political commentator sam sachs now to the ukraine where the
8:08 pm
future is uncertain the people are deciding on a new government after the ousting of the president a violent uprising resulted in dozens dead and today a very divided country artie's alexy or a chef ski has the latest from kiev. e.u. member states greece we don't have any jobs and at the same time we have debts to pay they should support us now that we're in great need e.u. member states spain but i think you know i'm unemployed i have two children and we don't get any government help and it's hard to survive each month but if we don't have money for us how can we give it to ukraine. and revolt in ukraine a country without even an association deal with you. know is playing with carrots and sticks the there is economic integration which was going to mean that big parts of the ukrainian working population will see a deterioration in their living cell the fantasy about entering your of the streets
8:09 pm
being lined with gold that's a fantasy because the real project is it is an i.m.f. based austerity program with questions about who will lead ukraine into the future and whether the country will stay together one thing that's clear it's the route economy that needs to be revamped first even before the euro my down protest ticked off there was a talk of a possible default in ukraine in the van very external dads reached a hundred and sixty billion euro it was one of the main reasons why king of refused to sign the trade bank with the e.u. fearing it could aggravate the situation even more you november last year you were offered only several hundred million euros to ukraine but with the opposition now taking the reins the e.u. is ready to give a whole lot more luxury maybe even embers such as greece and spain jeno hard before i make that same can help now. i'm just speechless this idea is worse than anything. her state could greece seem to huge debts and then they all for ukraine
8:10 pm
all the money that she rejects you and see you from kiev ukraine. at the heart of the conflict is ukraine's ties to the european union the opposition. it is pinning their hopes on the e.u. to come to the rescue but does the union have the financial capital to secure the country's future well some are skeptical of that patrick young from investment consultants t.v. advisers says the e.u. is not financially prepared to save the country. the situation has not changed months ago the free trade agreement collapsed eight because it was skewed in favor of the european union secondly because the european union offered a derisory eight hundred million euros knowing the european union's financial situation has not changed we've got all manner of people the governing party in the u.k. all sorts of politicians across europe even mr to scrim neighboring poland is saying
8:11 pm
that effectively it's going to be impossible to manage to be very loud which with phones at the same time frankly the new ukrainian government is is effectively in la la la i mean they're already asking for thirty five billion dollars that's up from the fifteen billion dollars that had been agreed to by the by the president mr young the cove it's just a few months ago with with russia and therefore it's really a mess the european union does not have the political capital to spend on rescuing ukraine from twenty years of economic mismanagement given the problems in the backyard of the euro zone. that was patrick executive director at devious advisers. now to an uprising against police brutality here and the u.s. and the city of detroit new york residents are demanding justice after a clash between police and patrons at a bar take
8:12 pm
a look at this surveillance video. right. there. you can see several police officers swarming the inside of the bar the scene chaotic you can see several officers forcing a man to the ground one of them beating the man with a baton police say they were responding to a nine one one call alerting them of a fight at the bar but according to the outraged patrons and the owner of the bar there was no problem until. police showed up well that conflict has sparked outrage in the community over alleged racial discrimination and police brutality barry glick one of the owners of the bar spoke at a public safety committee hearing after the bad hundreds of people showed up to voice their support take a listen this surveillance tapes clearly show that mr donnelly did nothing to provoke the brutality of the recent thank
8:13 pm
you however the tapes i show show other patrons being hit with nightsticks by the police in the building during and after the initial assault on this to donnelly i can only surmise that these individuals were being beaten because they were expressing outrage at what they were seeing unfolding before their thank you. a group of activists and concerned citizens wrote a letter to the u.s. department of justice demanding a civil rights investigation into the police department one of the citizens as sign the letter tells our t.v. that an investigation is underway the troy police department denies using excessive force and says they are cooperating with the f.b.i. . still out here on our two year turns out that mars is less bare and that it looks
8:14 pm
scientists now claim that the red planet has liquid water well this discovery make future trips to life on mars more likely more on that after the break. star wars. are finished.
8:15 pm
my marinates join me on. impartial and financial commentary interviews and much much. only on the bus and. the but. it was terrible a. very hard to take out. once again to put some on here is a lie have you ever had sex with that make their feelings did i say that.
8:16 pm
it was fun. to. play. play. play the beauty of the people that i first took. over the place. did you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy correct albus. role. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of
8:17 pm
our government and out across several we've been hijacked why a handful of transnational corporations will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once it's all just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem to try and rational debate in a real discussion critical issues facing america fine for bill ready to join the movement then walk a little bit of. a got a quote for you with a pretty tough. they wait substory. get this guy like me you're about done stead of working for the people most missions on the beach were pretty joe wright brothers beating.
8:18 pm
the dead read it word. for decades people have wondered if life on mars is possible now we may be closer to an answer water and essential component of life as in you know it may currently be on the red planet scientists have been keeping a close eye on mars and have captured images that could reveal the presence of water take a look at the photos out from nasa as mars or cognisance orbit are they're raising a lot of questions the formations are shaped sorta like fingers they appear and disappear apparently depending on the season scientists say this could be
8:19 pm
a pretty can even sing proof that there is a water and they believe that it is salty salt water great news for the hundreds of people planning on going to mars in the next decade that mars in one mission is offering one way tickets to the red planet and as you'll see there is plenty of takers i want to go to mars because i feel like an alien here illegally just a lot of money it's about able to go to india. i don't ever buy any furniture i just find it by the side of the road and if i can't find if i can find a. cardboard. i'm resourceful. for more i was joined earlier by lou gender oh john he's a graduate student at enjoyed the trade of technology and he published a paper with the findings i first asked him to tell us about these images and their significance. so the images were captured by highroads camera mars reconnaissance
8:20 pm
orbiter and what she was seeing in the scene you're looking like a dark street performing when the temperatures are right on mars so you know a lot of other things on mars was driven by carbon dioxide. for what you're seeing there is the same sort of forming and growing when the temperature just fly for water or liquid water to exist on mars so they're forming and growing and then they're feeding the woods on everything these are probably grinds on the present the surface of mars i want to ask you because it seems like every or year or every other year there is kind of new news about loudwater being on mars so what's the significance of this discovery exactly like going to every year there's some sort of play in the by the water and bars and we're probably like the hundred discover water on mars but we're proposing is actually look at what a lot of people have proposed. the water on the marshes the water in the minerals that is what we're talking about is you know something like
8:21 pm
a stream you were flying on your backyard or something it's actually good water on the surface so it's much different that maybe some of the previous going in and also there also have been a lot of previous green bay thought it was actually had water on mars and they just i mean the evidence did not send and we put this is a would be an issue paper we published back and twenty eleven so it's been three years now and no one has been able to come up with alternative hypothesis to explain the features so h two o. in liquid form a sign of that ad could you drink at. well you could probably drink your blood i wouldn't i wouldn't drink at most so. if it was water it's probably very salty. just so you know what the pure water like. it would probably not be a stable in the surface of mars so you have water it's probably going to be very salty ok ok so i don't blame you for not wanting to drink at want to ask you one of the first men to step on the moon buzz aldrin is on
8:22 pm
a mission to get the first human on mars i he was here at a conference not too long ago i caught up with him mr aldrin and asked what his vision is for mars here's what he had to say. a growing permanent group of people arrived there knowing that they're going to spend the rest of their lives and they've been trained as a team to that was who i had to use a different the cheap me. so very very ambitious for life on mars are inhabiting it and even starting a civilization there i mean what do you think is the new discovery of more proof that mars is habitable all for humans. it's an interesting course it's one of the holy grail of human curiosity and. would certainly with this discovery everything we know about there's water on mars. you know so what we
8:23 pm
hypothetically wouldn't go to the surface of mars surface subsurface ice and have water but what we're proposing is well in some places you actually have liquid water so you know it looks better and brighter. yeah definitely right yeah and this mars was. a very ambitious mission within a decade is when they hope to really start getting people on mars and to start building up that civilization. do you think that this mission is a has attainable i know there's a lot of people that are are signing up for these one way tickets they have i mean they arrive there and they wouldn't come back to earth they become martians essentially what do you think again is this another sign that this is a these up all out of feasible venture. i certainly hope so. certain that you know from that they can go simple and i think we're bit. being
8:24 pm
able to achieve those three i certainly hope so that we're able to do both. i mean i have my doubts. you know all my doubts are just doubts and someone will prove me wrong i want to leave them there. yeah well i have to say it so that will creep up on a sooner than we think i. appreciate you coming on very very interesting developments there that was. a graduate student at the georgia institute of technology well it may not be the mega millions but some people may consider it the jackpot the c.b.s. kerry team is teaming up with a top ranked hospital in new york city to all for a sweep stakes the grand prize being colin ask the that's right you can't beat a free go to last complete after the c.b.s. gears go to be sweepstakes you can be our numeral no. that's right the lucky winner gets a trip for two to new york city three nights in
8:25 pm
a luxury hotel and you heard it a free colonoscopy upon arrival to the big apple extravaganza begins with a laxative you must be between the ages of forty and seventy nine to be in the running and you have until mid april to answer. after nine eleven there was a dramatic uptick in government surveillance the new approach by the department of homeland security would make use of facial and iris recognition technology the residents laura harshness as more. the u.s. department of homeland security just issued a request for information on. of calls of the multi-modal biometric solution put
8:26 pm
land border exit basically homeland one company is just that informal proposal for how they'd help the government biometrically track through facial or i respect that mission at least ninety seven percent of all the people who leave the u.s. at land borders they want to be able to identify by face or eyeball everyone who walks or drives out of the u.s. along the land borders and keep a record of it they say this tracking will improve boarding malice a favorite catch all excuse for surveillance but here is by far the creepiest part of the proposal they want the technology to quote require limited already no direct travel or information or physical contact if possible in other words they want people to have no idea that they have just been tracked i guess according to the request document an average of. any two thousand and nine u.s. citizens can walk into in out of the u.s.
8:27 pm
every day in a twelve hour period homeland wants to be able to peacefully recognize everything gold one of the they also want anyone who submit ideas about how to do that to remember that the u.s. wants the technology generic enough so they can integrate it with all of their other buy toys they want you to develop it for them and then go away basically so the u.s. wants to track every single visitor as they leave the u.s. probably without them knowing it is not exactly friendly neighborly approach but if you think it sounds like a good idea because that's the kind of world we live in they consider this home when trying to figure out how to track everyone leaving this country to no avail for over a decade now they're going to spend billions more to keep trying to figure it out even the government's own accountability office considers homeland acquisition programs like this one to be a high risk for abuse always costing more than they should taking more time than they should and delivering less promised so either this initiative makes the u.s.
8:28 pm
the world's it creepy is toast or it's yet another colossal drain of our tax dollars for nothing either way if you're planning on crossing the u.s. border anytime soon you might want to wink or smile or something just to say hello to all who are watching tonight let's talk about that by following me on twitter at the resident. now before we go and forget to tune in at nine pm for larry king now tonight's guest star the cast members of the c.b.s. t.v. series criminal minds here's a sneak peek of tonight's episode larry asks them about a statement made by the show's previous star manti patton can. is what mandy said about it on the biggest public mistake he's ever made was doing that show i never
8:29 pm
thought they were going to kill and rape all these women every night every day week after week year after year it was destructive to my soul and my personality you should read the pilot a little closer to. you that would know as i soon i mean it's the nature of the show and the think that real men and women do this job their read out of respect to my in the way all mine is to them as an actor my job is to portray that as honestly and truthfully as possible so no it does not but if there's a dog whistle the show with nobody you know i think we come under fire for that but i think if people actually watch the show they realize that the show is about the heroes that take down these bad guys we're not sensationalizing we're not you know making it look cool it's it's about these people that spend their lives hunting down these horrible people are. so terrified and at nine pm tonight right here
8:30 pm
on our t.v. america that's going to do it for now you can follow me on twitter at liz wall for now have a great night. i was the president and i think a society that case i think corporation trying to convince us to consume cars can do. the banks are trying to get all them all about the money.
