john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than food to see people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank so kate was really. seriously send us an e-mail. top american senators say they didn't know the u.s. had troops operating in need yeah and made questions over a deadly ambush earlier this month. but i didn't know there was a thousand troops in niger you heard senator graham there he didn't know we had a thousand troops in the share did you know i didn't i. in other headlines this morning a muslim couple in france are under investigation by the authorities after they attempt to register their newborn child with the name. of independence some confluence novitiate an alphabet book with words associated with the region's push to break away from spain.
good morning for me kevin over here in moscow has just turned eleven am now this chews day first in this live thirty minute update will tell you about this as the u.s. military in congress try to piece together what led to the deaths of american servicemen in new jersey this month it seems many lawmakers had no idea about their troop presence in that african country three weeks ago a group of american and local troops were attacked in the bio-diesel fighters for u.s. servicemen and ten nigerian soldiers were killed in an ambush and the pentagon says the group had no full air support until two hours after the battle began the bigger picture according to estimates has the second largest u.s. military presence in africa eight hundred out of six thousand troops across the continent if you look at the stats to djibouti is the when they were first place
with four thousand servicemen then in comes somalia in cameroon with four hundred three hundred soldiers respectively but soon it could be difficult to tell how many troops the u.s. has anywhere as a mirror come found. 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 in niger 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 did not and there you have it two sitting senior senators one republican and the other a democrat had no idea the us currently has 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 committed or aided the nine eleven attacks and only one person voted against it congresswoman barbara lee let's step back for a moment let's just pause 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 administration's use the on thirty seven 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 there are ways and already. consistent considerable complete. lack of.
transparency and accountability rigorous ration you know it's gotten significantly worse. as touted dishes reform. reform is part of the mine or my wonderful read for your. if you even list information. how many troops there are in various places and. when the former defense secretary and cia director leon panetta who 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 you have to start. 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 rock recently liberated from islamic state was once home to around three hundred thousand people but after months of military operations there
in time controversial rescue group the white helmets claims to have saved more lives in syria this time on the outskirts of the capital damascus which came into rocket fire but questions remain over the group's allegiance is still to this day on their status as heroes in the country as you put trying to reports next. 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. put 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 exhibition 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 and says this man's job description no worries till you get to the photo section with this pic and the text right next to it is smile as 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 group 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 some time spotted together with nusra even an al-jazeera documentary telling the brave story of the serious civil defense can
make you suspicious of how close to helmets could get to the jihad is 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. but as i've said the 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. a french couples having a run in with the authorities over the choice of name for the new baby the concerns but as predictable because the proud parents want to call the new born jihad he's been getting reaction to. i think. jihad was the first thing that comes to mind muslim terror and terrorism and opens what apparently has
been a butcher. to look at 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 and 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 probably will do you didn't name that jihad so easy to charity some day in a country the stuff of the wave of deadly terror attacks that have been to think forty it's look this is why the july has been called she had probably a piece of that perfect day but now it's going to change in two thousand and thirteen a mother will take it would be funny to send me a whole 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 mel even suggested. she could prescribe them 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 in 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. forbes has strict rules when it comes to sing baby date and look at what's being added to the band links to these it seems that parents have to
some very intimate. soul that you can see on t.v. . the 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 to explain 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 the fact these people are serious. and unfortunately any way of dealing with them will be in almost every case to kill but not everyone so sure about that with people online saying militants in fact should be dealt with by the armed forces under the rules of war others fear that a policy of killing all jihad is would only provoke further rather close ation and potentially create more terrorists so what to do stuart later tried to clarify his
position tweeting that competence should clearly be treated he said within the law going on to add that the point he was trying to make was that i still members usually fight to the death according to official estimates the number of british citizens thought to be fighting for i still could be as high as eight hundred fifty now we discuss the problem and the ministers blunt ideas for tackling it with a one side ben harris quiney from the conservative think tank the bow group and on the other muslim rights campaigner salman butt this is how it turned out. 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 in this so-called hateful ideology mr issue 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 their whole propaganda message is it's a false message but their whole propaganda message is you know you're not welcome in britain you 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 threats 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 the body of the government today to get these types of powers what would happen tomorrow if a government came to power which which then began to criminalize your own political views and personal. beliefs and so forth so we have zero you will of no you have said to the rights now you're defending i 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 and i'm shocked to hear that isis is very clearly a vicious death cult. kingdom categorising is that is that he's not attempting to come defending i so yeah i'm saying yes it's very real i see what you want maybe that is exactly what you think and he's a very real friendly allow. why didn't right 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 i'm travel to the. land to join duck with death cult. and any any any sovereign government must have the right to enter into war and enter into conflict with its enemies and that's all that is happening here. is a morning here in moscow thanks for watching after the break we have not played on the catalonia crisis today plus a story for you behind the german police killer has 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. confirmations from washington to washington to meet. the media the voters elect the businessman to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president. some wanted. to go right to the press this is what. three of the more people. interested in the why. question.
the fate of catalonia remains in limbo again today the spanish region's parliament will now 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 rumbles on a spaniard. strain is acting like a dictatorship they want to frighten and intimidate us physically and fear legal instruments while accusing us of sedition and rebellion like it difficult that this whole mess when i go we must remind the catalan government that in accordance with the constitution there is also a president and councillors the day i think knowing they're not to keeping their positions by divine rights. so while the politicians tussle over what or what not to do next the pro independence movement seems to be rallying support among the very of our correspondent found out in barcelona. while consul on is last 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 a word when it stops you know which is the kaplan for both money fast or demonstration or to be a letter ass which stands for the word or yes well those behind this alphabet clearly wanted people to vote and they were referendum on no prices for gas and for what i stands for and it is no force dependence well it's an aid susie's threatens to lose the attention off some children there were other alternatives on the shelves and some even came with the 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 political know they are definitely too small they will have time to learn about it but maybe in ten years not know or you know the thing 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 my one line i. mean you should use kind of things to beans i think it's something they have to learn by events and i started out 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. stuart in germany next were 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 wounded two of his colleagues during a raid on his home authorities were looking at the time in fact to confiscate hunting weapons this guy had as the man was no longer deemed fit to possess firearms and those a separate incident in another instance a member of the same far right movement shot and injured an officer during an eviction now both men were members of the keep the story the citizens movement a far right group based on the idea that germany's pre world war two borders still exist and incidentally they also refused to recognize the legitimacy of the german government in the country's laws to there was a sion hadn't really been taken seriously in till now but now it's got some fifteen thousand members and it's considered a growing threat to german security. 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 to speak of plague for a public administrator us because they wrote letters explaining the state has no right to text or to find them so at the beginning it was only low ranking public officials who got into problems with the rice burger but in last year's this movement has grown when somebody from the police came to them they refused and even applied violence there was a kind of wait and see attitude and when these or iceberg are started to do war then famed sea org amends apply violence to public officials then they started to be considered is much more than only a. side effect of
a liberal society and it seems that the state no longer will handle with them in their messy if there is the status displayed for so long time. rush is ready for a huge influx of visitors next summer of course all here for the football world cup seems concerns over security infrastructure of already prove what of them are with plenty of people having made the trip this year to enjoy the fee for confederations cup or when well one man who knows what it's like to get stuck in the top flight football in russia two is a manager massimo career from italy the legendary former defender is currently in charge of russia's most successful club spartak moscow and he's been taking a bit of time to share some thoughts with us. wasn't important about this support means a lot to us we feel it if that seems run out of energy fans give them the strength
to carry on. was yes yes or yes i think we can do that for sure it's important for a team to have fans who can support it over the ninety minutes it was for thank you of course it's important for me what mass media say about us i usually pay attention to negative reviews i don't like them and i try to defend my team quite often journalists cross the line but it's easy to criticize from the stands and watch the game from the sidelines was about izzy sports i had no crisis at all in football is hard to win all the time look at other clubs opponents study your playing style and gradually find a way to gain the upper hand was less of a go the store i think yes judging from what i've seen it's ready there are beautiful new stadiums built cities have changed the way they look it's a very important event for russia and i don't doubt that the world cup will be of
a very high standard. yeah a lot riding on it and just to let you know two new program exciting this for a closer look at all things football in the run up to next year's at world cup we're delighted to say former english premier league star stan collymore set teamed up with us for a new show on this channel. i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending to do the twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else going to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy great so what chance with. the thinks it's going to.
good to have you on board stun good to have you with us too thanks for watching full of stories if you're not by a t.v. you're on the. whole make its manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the final go around. making the whole middle of the room sick.
but i hope they don't. think. this is the sound. i'm d. not to run and then still get the message in but he be theo i know there's no sound ok but honestly i'm just. going to. say yeah he's on the school's approach to sundown it's not it's not for myself indeed i must but if you have a lot of them behind it about the boss on the c.d.'s that counts you don't need to yet another student got a deal. killer then a month into it is before he does this not because of
a this not to be but i mean. did you know a. good thing they would only let you. stanton glantz only learned of this case through the documents we showed him. the approaches that they used to attack the person doing the research on linking cured meats with cancer were the standard things they do one is to go through her work with a fine tooth comb and find every little thing they could possibly complain about and because the issues tend to be fairly technical you know if you're a politician or if you're a reporter or english or a highly specialized reporter all you hear is well this person said there was something bad and this other person said that they didn't know what they were talking about and settled these efforts to.
