3:01 am

3:15 am
their lifetimes to study cancer causing genes have called the patenting of these genes the wrong counterproductive nonsensical after myriad obtains the gene patent in one nine hundred ninety eight it attempted to eliminate b.r.c.a. testing at competing laboratories by sending them cease and desist letters dear do good dear we have reason to suspect you are trying to find a cure for cancer conley return to medical school and obtain a dental degree or we will pursue all available legal and or criminal remedies that may be a political nerd in twenty or thirty nine supreme court justices meaning all of them ruled that it was illegal to pass and something in nature breaking marion's monopoly on testing and researching the b.r.c.a. genes well i guess that means i'm going to have to throw out my patent for my

3:19 am
when a loved one is murdered it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer and it means to live the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people was terrifying news just knew it was present and that we were even many victims' families want the death penalty to be a mole or at least we have to keep to get tell here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this and this isn't the way.

3:22 am
the war so a lot of people just don't have a place they can call home anymore secondly infrastructure is a big issue because major transportation arteries have been cut and thirdly electricity so skies that anyone who has a power generator well is a very lucky person. that's why factories like this one are crucial most syrian cities have to survive amid a chaotic and unstable power supply we've been told that when anti assad fighters captured this facility they looted it clean for equipment and left it badly damaged it's fully operational now but lack of power force isn't the worst that syrians have had to endure lie i swear we were dying of hunger one kilo of bread for one
3:23 am
thousand lire you have to eat otherwise you starve to death in paradise a truly rice and vulgar nothing that. we were living in hunger and poverty we would wake up in the morning not knowing how to manage to get our daily food children suffered malnutrition the ten year old girl looked like a two year old. throughout the war some parts of syria have seen well reflects famine but it would have been much much worse if it wasn't for the incredibly fertile soil and that's why here some branches of the trees are actually broken under the weight of peaches advanced agriculture and international aid is helping to put food back on people's flate so now with the fighting contained to small pot. syrians can treat themselves to something nice this ice cream plant has even had a go with its own interpretation of the oreo recipe yet all of this is great on

paper but doesn't help much if delivery trucks have no roots to drive on. this just over forty kilometers between the cities of holmes and hama a trip that should have taken somewhat thirty minutes would stretch up to six hours with this bridge destroyed of commuters had to gamble with their lives taking long detours through jihads territories this newly paved highway has brought the drive back to well under an hour this market in homes is more than two thousand years old it has seen many things in this civil war is not the worst of those it has survived through and it is hoped that the rest of the country will follow its model and because john of reporting from syria forty.
3:25 am
amid the massive reconstruction there's also room for artistic work these artists once lived in a refugee camp near damascus but had to flee when it came under attack with peace returning they've now attentive to depict the aftermath of the fighting they say they want to leave a record for future generations of what happened to the camp and what they went very. meanwhile that meanwhile the trump administration has stopped funding for stabilization projects in syria said the same time u.s. officials say they're making preparations for the final battle against eisel. we're remaining in syria the focus is the ensuring defeat of isis we still have not launched the final phase to defeat the physical kind of fight this is actually being prepared now and that will come at a time for choosing but it is coming almost all of syria has now been liberated
3:26 am
from islamists most of esses back under the control of the legal government in damascus and the reconstruction of many of syria's cities devastated by the conflict is well underway the president trump says the u.s. and its allies as if most of the credit for defeating the terrorists coalition to defeat isis has liberated very close to one hundred percent of the territory but done a great job with isis we have just absolutely decimated eyes is just absolutely obliterated isis in iraq joshua landis head of middle east studies at the university of oklahoma thinks washington has other goals in syria besides fighting terrorism. the united states does not want assad to become too strong there are hoping to keep leverage in order to try to push iran out of the country to get a better deal for the kurds and and of course they're also worried about what's
3:27 am
going to happen if they're province where there is very complex negotiations and and russia is at the heart of them so there are many competing agendas in washington and as long as president trump is not spending a lot of money there i think he's happy to keep a few thousand troops if that increases america's leverage the united states does not want to spend a lot of money and that's quite clear and many people have been complaining bitterly about this particularly in iraq and other areas that have been quite badly destroyed they've been pressuring a saudi arabia which just said it would spend another hundred million in syria stabilization they've been pushing france and and european countries to try to get them to spend more money rather than washington this is been one of president trump's constant refrain is that others have to pay for this process. come for i to pentagon on the left was stripped of his security clearance off he
3:28 am
complained about how lucrative contracts were given out to stephan how a man who tended to be an f.b.i. informant with more details has caleb more. viewers will recall stefan helper at the university of cambridge helper met with an individual from the campaign carter page and this meeting took place roughly three weeks before the f.b.i. launched its investigation into alleged collusion between trump and russia it was later revealed that stefan helper has a long history as an f.b.i. informant he's worked with the cia what we're also learning is that an individual named adam a lot of injure has been stripped of his security clearance now adam levin sure is a twelve year pentagon strategist he has worked with the pentagon he raised why it was that stefan helper was receiving over a million dollars over the course of six years and different contracts and it wasn't exactly clear what work he was carrying out now adam levin juror raised this complaint and he was then stripped of his security clearance now he filed
3:29 am
a whistleblower retaliation complaint and his attorneys are pointing out kind of an interesting chain of events this is what his attorney has to say. rick that kept hope was contracts very close to the vest and nobody seems to have any idea what he was doing the time he. did a good chunk of it. he'd composed them and then collect the burmans as he's. is it possible that adam a lot of injure was fired simply for asking about the money that was going to step on help or in these contracts these allegations are being raised there's a lot of talk about when is it proper to strip someone of their security clearance and when is it not it indicates that there seems to be quite a bit of disagreement within the halls of power in the united states as we head up to the midterm congressional elections. respect to any form and my five intelligence officer who says whistle but i was in the u.s.
3:30 am
and not receiving fact treatment. i think we have to await the outcome of his trial of his case just to see what the actual facts might be however it does raise some interesting concerns one of course the over reliance of the u.s. intelligence agencies on contracting out their work and the huge amounts of money that are there by paid to contractors usually friends of whatever administration is in power secondly of course we have to think about what actually happens to whistleblowers in the u.s. because they've had a really rough time those coming out of the intelligence agencies over the last decade and the americans say they have this procedure where whistleblowers can conveys their concerns and they will be properly addressed and yet we see time and time again that they're not so i think we need also to consider what might be the best path for whistleblowers to have confidence that if they have concerns about crime or about corruption they will be heard. the investigation will occur those who might be needed to be held to account will be held to account but.
