10:03 pm
a planned action and this was not just out of the blue so more details they did not disclose during the press conference but they clearly think that this action what's to it will have to be this yesterday had to. resort to two people dying on the streets of newark who had been very well planned and carried out the brutality police and the russian city of sower could tap china man dan after he wondered seven people in a knife attack investigators say that they're looking into a number of possible motives i sung while has claimed and twice response and on edge donna has more on what we know. officially the police have not confirmed anything at this point we know that this is a high profile investigation and also the police are looking into the possibility into reports that the suspect may have been mentally unstable we've seen the footage from the scene of attack some really graphic images seven people have been

niece survived the hardest hit areas to chelsea king twenty fifteen and about a cafe it. was painfully familiar you knew immediately what what was going on i mean i live this life my daughter lived next to the bottle in paris my niece was just here for me it's not like for most people here a sudden unexpected. event for me this is the life i live. i've been working in these immigrant communities and i've been working on jihadi networks all across europe and i thought immediately that it's most likely a moroccan network was interesting because isis had always use spain as this principal. jumping off point for getting recruits into turkey and syria and the
10:07 pm
question for me is while isis was in control the attacks were fairly localized but now i ask myself if these networks are starting to pick up on on their own and whether they'll become just more widespread in the arctic or cross your. yes the food seller across from the bar in mumbai in brussels what's going on he knew a hell of a lot more that was going on than the police but no one seems to be engaged in understanding what is going on in these networks security cameras captured the moment the vans spent. to shop on less from less than barcelona but best friends can be seen trying to get out of its path islamic state later claimed responsibility for the atrocity and we spoke to a form of british home office or counter british home office counter-terrorism

adviser. now he said tax this need her i impossible to prevent. we always knew there was going to be blowback for what happened in iraq the vacuum that was created by the illegal invasion by coalition forces in iraq and the fact that isis filled that vacuum and then are looking to him i mean it was predictable it's nothing that we didn't expect i mean it could happen almost anywhere to be fair sometimes these are unpredictable like for instance what's happened in finland recently completely unprovoked attack despite the fact that their security services did say there was a risk it is a country that is otherwise neutral so it's very difficult to predict and sometimes these are talks of completely random which makes it even more difficult to ascertain like i said random unprovoked like for instance what's happened in finland recently it is very very difficult i mean you'd have to literally be watching everybody and have logarithm set to pick up key words and phrases in every
10:09 pm
single conversation and communication across an entire continent that's remarkably difficult these are random attacks and they are difficult to ascertain and evaluate and assess. the american presence chief strategist steve benen has a lot of the white house even before donald trump took office then and was seen as a key figure in his seem however he spent only six months as the president's top tactician and white house statement explained to the decision for ben's departure as a neutral one will now return to being the executive chairman of breitbart news one commentator we spoke to downsize that it will help tramp in the long run. and it is the one guy in the white house that the deplorable as like they know him they like him they admire him and the fact that he's been hated by the media and hated by all the lefties is just. icing on the cake for these people they will they
10:10 pm
like him they you know the fact that he's being in that band is being attacked raises him in their in their. steam so the fact that trump fired him will hurt trump it's going to i think the white house polling is going to show him after this sinks in to everybody that it's hurt him with his own base not something he going to ford by the way does from a political standpoint than as their latest in a long list of departures from the trumpet ministration following has that said bannon said that he's ready to go to war for trump against his opponents and capitol hill as well as the media and corporate america however here is what he added later. the trump presidency that we fought for in one is over we still have a huge movement and we will make something of the strong presidency but that presidency is over when analysts we spoke to believes that the establishment is
10:11 pm
trying to push out those who challenge it. trump is still determined to fight unregulated globalism to preserve the constitution of this country to reform the vast excesses in spending in our government spend six trillion dollars a year all governments inside the united states just on government six trillion dollars is an awful lot of money to be spending on government and he embedded others were trying to change that but they came up against i think some globalists . professor shine the u.s. capitol have toward ground painted over a statue of a confederates military officer and are demanding that it be taken down the monument represents officer albert pike and is located to enter dish three square and washington. spoke out next to the studio when several man claiming to be too unless argued with protesters the issue of racially divisive monuments as playing out across the country after the end rests in the city of charlottesville
10:12 pm
a week ago. a new york subway tiles at times square station will now be altered due to their resemblance to the confederate flag these are not confederate flags it is a design based on jus metric forms that represent the crossroads of the world and to avoid absolutely any confusion we will modify them to make that absolutely crystal clear our modern reports now from new york on they going to oversee which has brought america's historical figures to the forefront not long ago we were out here on the streets of new york asking people if they thought that every monument to a slave owner should be demolished even if their founding fathers. did they stop madison avenue. and rename it yeah no i think it's fine so if one person is the first people there will be by the city you'd be a good idea to take it to. anything that's owned by
10:13 pm
a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be washington didn't go to war to defend slavery and i think concepts is very important even though we didn't expect people to want to tear down monuments to figures that are almost sacred in american history like george washington or thomas jefferson the idea now seems to be gaining momentum he wasn't protecting my freedom i wasn't someone who my ancestors weren't deemed human beings to him and so to me i don't care if it's a george washington statue or a thomas jefferson statue or robert e. lee statue they all need to calm down and if those two aren't enough for you how about we try let's blow up mt rushmore that was actually the title of an article from vice media before they changed it to something a little less insatiable but the point was pretty much the same now it's certainly true that george washington and thomas jefferson owned slaves mr president look i think the issue is that you and robert e. lee both own slaves right there was about. that was wrong but if you want talk
10:14 pm
about owning slaves you should talk about thomas jefferson whoa. abraham lincoln certainly did not own slaves he was always an outspoken opponent of slavery which he ended up abolishing in the context of a civil war now you would think he wouldn't be a target for anger but the people who did this certainly think he is going to launch a full scale war against history he's probably expect that there's going to be collateral damage.
10:15 pm
this type of actions should have been taken then perhaps fifty years ago with the civil rights movement this is whole situation has been created by certain media outlets like for example c.n.n. that they have you know pushed down on the narrative on the fact that you know that drop is a racist or that everybody that support a troublesome racist or or even going further that every single white person is racism i'm completely against this. first rate afghans are growing increasingly on a.t.c. over the u.s. led military campaign and their country saying that the civilian deaths and destruction are yielding few results and the fight against myself.

can you see the damaged house they dropped the mother of all bombs in that area we didn't get any benefit from the u.s. they target civilian houses but they don't target i still move it since they say the operation is to finish high school but in fact they don't most of the time they didn't target their value with islamic state groups or active. when the u.s. and afghan commandos came here they first dropped the mother of all bombs in the area in the last six months they only captured one kilometer area from islamic state militants we don't know what the problems were why they didn't advance if i had two helicopters or the hundred armed men i could clear this valley of enemies in a matter of hours but they didn't do it meanwhile president trump has spent several
10:17 pm
hours today meeting with his military and foreign policy teams discussing their long awaited strategy abdicate for the war in afghanistan it took to twitter to an ounce that this isn't have been made but didn't specify the white house media release didn't give any details and i thought instead saying information would be released at an appropriate time were washington correspondent john king reports. america's war in afghanistan has been ongoing for sixteen years and seen three different presidents come and go on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan i know that many of you have grown weary of this conflict. as you are well aware i do not support the idea of endless war yet given what's at stake in afghanistan i am firmly convinced that we should make this
