american citizens say they didn't know the u.s. had troops operating in egypt amid questions over a deadly ambush earlier this month. but i didn't know there was a thousand troops in niger your etc game there you didn't know we had a thousand troops in the air did you. know i didn't know. that is what it is while a muslim couple in france are under investigation by the authorities after they attempt to register the new born child of the named jihad. and the eight instead of independent some couple that is a publishing alphabet book with words associated with the regions push to break away from space.
good morning from this is r.t. with me kevin zero in this morning it's eight am here now this choose day and first in this law eve thirty minute news update was started with this as the u.s. military and congress try to piece together what led to the deaths of american servicemen in need of this month it seems many lawmakers had no idea about the troop presence in that african country three weeks ago a group of american and local troops were attacked in egypt by eisel fighters for u.s. servicemen and ten nigerian soldiers were killed in that ambush the pentagon says the group received no air support until two of the battle began according to estimates nature has the second largest u.s. military presence in africa eight hundred six thousand troops across the continent however it will be difficult to tell just how many troops the u.s.
has across the will disappear or can reports. so it's official washington has intervened in so many different countries even u.s. senators seem to have lost track but i didn't know there was a thousand troops and this is an endless war without boundaries no limitation on the geography and senator graham is not the only one senator graham there you didn't know we had a thousand troops and did you know i didn't and there you have it two sitting senior senators one republican and the other a democrat had no idea the us currently has over one thousand troops in news year so how is this possible past administrations have used the authorization for use of military force against terrorists or the. to warrant military operations involving non-state actors or terror organizations passed by congress right after september eleventh that allows the president to use force against those who planned it committed or aided the nine eleven attacks and only one person voted against it
congresswoman barbara lee my friend let's step back for a moment let's just cause just for a minute and think through the implications of our actions today so that this does not spiral out of control according to a two thousand and sixteen congressional research office report the bush and obama administrations used on thirty seven occasions to initiate military action in over a dozen countries and now with trump it appears there's even less oversight the pentagon has just announced that they will no longer disclose troop numbers in iraq and syria but can this apply to other regions besides iraq and syria. and really the. consistent complete. lack. of transparency and accountability in your own religious tradition you know it's gotten significantly worse. has touted this is reform.
reform this policy in your mind. wonderful reading you're going to have even listen to me. how many troops do is the very place. when the former defense secretary and cia director leon panetta was once asked about how many wars the u.s. was engaged in seemed rather lost it's a good question but you know it started. to stop and think about this now with very little transparency in u.s. operations overseas may not exactly be quite the subject to laugh about. on our team washington d.c. . the syrian city of raka recently liberated from islamic state was one sewn to around three hundred thousand people but after months of military operations there by the u.s. backed forces less than one percent of its original population remain now and those unable to flee or have been left behind simply the most vulnerable the.
syria this time on the outskirts of the capital damascus which came under rocket attack but questions remain over the group's allegiances and the status is still rose in the country as you put trying to report. this is the newest you tube video of the syria civil defense group aka the white helmets they're saving lives after a rocket attack on a residential area just to the east of damascus so says the description i'm not trying to say they've been doing a bad job at rescuing but there are things that can destroy a reputation even if it's been built on saving lives social networks will show. how to look at the page of some a wearing a white helmet and his profile pick the hottest for the sake of god how's that for a facebook job field moving on to posted images this is the leader of jaish
thought to. your attention to what the hash tag stands for j. shelf attack represents me and my family and then smiley face feeling grateful. next profile with white helmets emblems and a bun but here's something else remember how russia's ambassador in turkey was shot in the back and killed right in front of an exit vision audience you can go back to the post from december two thousand and sixteen on that profile and find the picture of the gunmen followed by peace to your soul champ.
civil defense says this man's job description no worries till you get to the photo section with this pic and the text raw. next to it is smile is praising a member of eisel after his death you wished and you got what you wished for and you won with god's willing just some of what he wrote there and there's a couple of photos of his smile you featuring terrorist symbols and actual faces. written over an older graffiti the flag of all new straw in syria and terrorist fighters themselves i also remember the video i saw somewhere else. speaking of the white helmet sometimes together with nusra even an al jazeera documentary telling the brave story of the serious civil defense could make you suspicious of how close the helmets get to the why would activists keep nusra
front flag at a place where they rest and i've got a question to ask whoever edited the subtitles of that film at al-jazeera is going to become of the show. within the good he added as i've said reputation means a lot and nobel peace prize nomination and an oscar winning film have certainly helped cement it but it seems there is more to bear in mind for whoever next decides to award the white helmets with the prize. story next but a french couple having a run in with the authorities over their choice of name for the new baby the concerns about predictable because the proud parents were to call the new born. shiloh do birds he's been getting reaction in paris the. the jihad was the first thing that comes to mind muslim terror terrorism and bobbins so what about as a butcher. didn't get the wrong idea maybe they don't intend it's with us but
i wouldn't call my my son i think it's nice there is no problem to give any name you know i don't like it personally but i think you know that you should be able to call your child whatever you want well that's exactly what one couple called to do you didn't name their jihad so pretty easy to charity some day in a country the stuff of the wave of deadly terror attacks carried. to the forty it's. like a child has been killed she had probably a good piece of that perfect day but now it's time to change in two thousand and thirteen a mother told it would be funny to send me a boat child to school wearing export with the slogan i am a poet and it had the points name he had on the back of his birthday september that
he had letters that the school didn't point that stuff funny and the mother ended up with a suspended jail sentence that meryl even suggested. she caught him to see us in the media in france and particularly in europe that the word jihad is associated with violence the word jihad at its root and it's a tamala g. means the effort of working on oneself self control and work towards a form of moral spiritual and ethical completeness it has nothing to do with the concept of holy war there is no holy war in islam it is a bad translation which unfortunately prevailed in societies representation of this concept. crofts has strict rules when it comes to seeing baby date and look at what's being added to the bottom least if he's it seems that parents are happy faulting the more we come to bessie.
on t.v. . a british government minister says all u.k. citizens who go to fight for islamic state in syria and iraq should not return home alive here's how rory stewart explained his reasoning. they believe in an extremely hateful doctrine which involves killing themselves killing others and trying to use violence and brutality to create an eighth century or seventh century state so i'm afraid we have to be serious about these people are serious. and unfortunately any way of dealing with them will be in almost every case to kill or not everyone so sure of that with people online saying militant should be dealt with by the armed forces under the rules of war others fear that a policy of killing all jihad this would only provoke further radicalization and potentially create more terrorists stewart later tried to clarify his position tweeting that competence should clearly be treated within the law that the point he
was trying to make was that i still members usually fight to the death now according to official estimates the number of british citizens thought to be fighting for rights or could be as high as eight fifty discuss the problem and the ministers blunt idea for tackling it with belarus quiney he's from the conservative think tank the bo group and on the other side of it was a rights campaigner someone but. you know everyone agrees that you know ice is bad and somebody's killing innocent people and all that kind of stuff is bad that's that's not the issue here issue is how do you know somebody who has gone there has gone there for the purposes of supporting the ruling classes and this so-called hateful ideology mr sharon and woefully unaware of the actual reasons the natural causes us to why people go out to isis it's not they're not you know advertising hey come over here and you know we can hate britain together with a whole propaganda message it's a false message but their whole propaganda message is you know you're not welcome
in britain you know if you come here you'll be welcome here not only the practice should be to kill those people but that is the practice that has been in place for a long time these are people who pose a real threat not just to british people in fact not really to british people but more to the peace in the region and the united kingdom is committed to destroying lysis with the united states and russia as majorettes as well and that is absolutely a strategy that i think almost everyone in great britain feels we should continue to pursue history has shown that when governments get that taste of that kind of power it's only a matter of time before it's applied on you know the they're the enemy combatant so to speak or the bogeyman of tomorrow i would ask my interlocutor what he would do you know that is not the government today to get these types of powers what would happen tomorrow if a government came to power which which began to criminalize your own political
views and personal. beliefs and so forth so we have so you know you will of there you have said to the right now you're defending all you have rights for a reason i think that's absolute nonsense first of all you're talking about isis is some sort of false bogeyman i'm shocked to hear that isis is very clearly a vicious death cult. i'm categorizing as that is that he's not attempting to come i'm defending i so yeah i'm saying again it's very real i see where you are maybe that is exactly what you are the enemy these are very real friendly allow. why didn't righto take an interest with our. way i'm with you all the way and how this is you know contradicted international law because what you're doing is you are willfully misconstruing what rory stewart said was to apply to you cases isms that have remained in the u.k. so we're talking about whether they will actually wear that out of the on british citizens who have left i don't you know i think travel to the arbitrary and joined
up with a vicious death cult. rule that any any any sovereign government must have the right to enter into war and enter into conflict with its enemies and that is all that is happening here. come out for break with they'd only catalonia crisis in a couple of minutes plus two the story behind a german police killer who's just been sentenced to a lengthy spell. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around quite a corporation washington washington media the media
the. voters elect. to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. well it seems wrong. but i. just don't. get to shape out just to. add to. it in detroit because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. slate a couple of new remains in limbo the spanish regions parliament want to meet on thursday to decide whether or not to push ahead with independence in response to
the threat of direct rule from madrid both sides continue to blame each other for the crisis as the row rebels own a spaniard to let you know spain is acting like a dictatorship they want to frighten and intimidate us physically and via legal instruments while accusing us of sedition and rebellion is going to put up this whole mess when i go we must remind the catalan government that in accordance with the constitution there is also president and council last the day i think knowing they're not occupying their positions by divine rights. while politicians tussle over what to do next the pro independence movement seems to be rallying support among the very young as our correspondent to the coaching of has been fighting them . while consul on is lab hanging waiting for the local parliament to decide whether it will yield to madrid's demands the idea of independence has spread far beyond political wrangling or mass street demonstrations now this is what we found in one
a bookshop located right and the heart of a barcelona on sale at the children's section an alphabet of independence where teaching letters isn't the only lesson children will learn for example in this book i am stands for the whole word but if it stops you know which is the kaplan for both money faster or demonstration or it could be a letter as which stands for the word or yes well those behind the south of clearly wanted people to vote and their referendum on no prices for gas and for what i stands for and it is no force dependence well if an aid susie's threatens to lose the attention off some children there were other alternatives on the shelves and some even came with a free gift this lack of an independent counsel law as we are in barcelona we decided to take to the streets and ask young kaplan parents if they want
independence spelt out to their children with the alphabet book i think they don't have to learn about police they are definitely too small they will have time to learn the both it but maybe in ten years not know you never know if you know what is going on well why not i can give it to my daughter i think it is a bit simple and doesn't properly explain things but still why not it can be interesting for her one life time. be. you should use kind of things to pete's i think it's something they have to learn by events in a style doubtless nino's not at this age children don't have the ability to form their opinion properly they believe in what we told them. i don't support the idea of independence and therefore i won't show this to my children i want them to have the right to decide for themselves. a story from germany next to a right wing extremist has been sentenced to life in prison for killing
a police officer in october last year the fifty year old man fatally shot a special unit officer and wounded two of his colleagues during a raid on his home he owned as many as thirty hunting weapons authorities were looking to confiscate them at the time as the man was no longer deemed fit to possess firearms in a separate incident member of the same far right movement a former winner of mr germany in fact shot on injured an officer as police tried to a victim from his house both men were members of the reich citizens movement far right group based on the idea that germany's free world war two borders still exist and it also refuses to recognize the legitimacy of the german government in the country's laws the organization which until recently had not been taken seriously now that has some fifteen thousand members and it's considered a very real threat to security in germany. we see considerable readiness for violence among the right citizens movements therefore it is getting more
problematic that so many citizens have the right to own weapons. only. this being a plague for a public opinion is frayed us because. explaining to the head of the state has no right to take save or to find them and so they simply created work but in the last two years when somebody from the police or somebody for sequester purposes came to them they refused and even applied violence my feeling is that the german state has lost a lot of its authority many people who only like playing theater behaved as if the state would not exist because there were some of them founded german kingdoms will declare themselves earth governor's office. it became fashionable so many inches money now do not longer believe the official media a public television and the big newspapers they go into the internet where they
simply believe in purely fictional theories about conspiracies taking over in so many countries like in germany. full of stories so much more to our site. kevin i would think so what should we slater stop day from more right after the break we. americans to make bread so aside because the things that americans will stand for are being dragged through the mud by rachel and other folks at m.s.n. basic and other media outlets that are reporting gossip anyway and not. report the
news. when i hope it will. give me no is this something i'm not to run then she'll get the deficit in. by the spirit. yeah use a little from both of you sometimes not want something to go much but i feel a lot of the behind of the. she does the ground she did the militia recovery will. kill it then i'm all in to get his beef be done of it's going to be this not to be but i mean. look you'll. get to live it up with love.
about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. to caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite
different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to blame that mainstream media has met its maker. would need to make this manufacture consent to step into the public wealth. when the ruling classes and reject them so. when the primary go around to lift certainly the one percent told. us to ignore middle of the room signal. to million more unionists the world. i am was the france as abbas broadcasting around the world from washington d.c.
