missile test. car broadcasting live direct from our studios here in moscow this is our team international john thomas certainly glad to have you with us all right now 1st we start with fresh doubts being cast over the credibility of the international chemical weapons a watchdog the o.p.c. w. as more leaked emails published by wiki leaks reveal concerns from yet another member of the team which probed an alleged attack in the syrian city of duma last year he says the final report into the incident misrepresents their findings. the fact finding mission report does not reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to doom or only one fact finding mission team member a paramedic the so-called fact finding mission core team was in duma we are not insisting on being right in our assertions but we are demanding to be heard we have

been stonewalled throughout by office cation exclusion and even thuggish bullying behavior the alleged chemical attack in early april last year reportedly killed dozens of civilians the united states and its nato allies france and the u.k. were quick to conduct airstrikes against syrian military targets over it the biggest western military action of the 8 year war now the o.p.c. w. later deployed the experts to the scene to investigate the suspected chemical attack and a subsequent report pinned the blame on the syrian government parties what i got to have has been looking into the new revelations. i don't know about the 3 little piglets but the o.p.c. w is having its house blow right down from the inside the 1st whistle blower they dismissed the 2nd they sort of excuse themselves and now in what is an absolute bombshell their most qualified inspector the f f m report does not

reflect the views of all the team members that deployed to duma i found that i was being excluded from the work for reasons not made clear allegedly the only team member who went to syria and there was allowed to cool right there syria report was the team paramedic and of the chemical inspectors were allowed to pitch in i attempted to submit my reports the f f m team leaders starting from the 15th of february 29th teen after noting continued reluctance from the f f m team to receive my report i deposited the report in d r a for collection on the 27th of february 29th and advised all relevant persons of this shouldn't have bothered seems no one. wanted to read it 48 hours later the u.p.c. w. published its 1st report and sutherland had a really taken a razor to it so much so that the actual team that went to syria didn't recognize it the consensus within the f.m. team was that there were indications of serious inconsistency isn't findings the
8:04 pm
conclusions appear to have been turned completely in the opposite direction now that we can exist publish what the preliminary report looks like here's what the u.p.c. w. deleted one evidence that contradicted witness testimony meaning what the alleged witnesses said deferred wildly from the hard evidence found by inspectors to the fact that the hospital videos which so shocked the world will think the victims were all actors the spade symptoms inconsistent with chlorine poisoning or poisoning with anything found at the scene 3 and this is the big one in the final report they found chlorine not how much just chlorine which you can fire did your kitchen in any home in any swimming pool maybe you're right what about removing trace or some other wording may work i'm still worried that a stock standard phrase such as chlorine containing compounds were detected or
8:05 pm
similar present the danger of it being misrepresented as a damning conclusion it's a political word smithing situation not purely technical and it was the anti acid war hawks trumpeted the fact what the o.p.c. w. did is akin to saying you found radioactive materials in someone's house without mentioning it was a tiny amount used in fire alarms and this on top of previous whistleblower revelations hard math cast doubt that the canisters at the scene were ever dropped their observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both. lindows will money placed at those 2 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft it all began with ian henderson when he 1st blew the whistle he was mocked smeared insulted u.p.c. w. claimed he wasn't even part of the team they lied leaked documents clearly show he
8:06 pm
was working for the u.p.c. w. shame on the o.p.c. w. you are aware of the highly questionable behavior surrounding this f f m we as others in the team who would like to but are unable are questioning the work practices follow during this investigation we are not insisting on being right in our assertions but we are demanding to be heard we have been stonewalled throughout biopsy exclusion and even thuggish bullying behavior this is more than a rebellion this is a catastrophe for the o.p.c. w a best this is a case of gross negligence worse than i pray i'm wrong this is corruption corruption in the very organization that's supposed to keep the world safe from chemical weapons either way from now on when the o.p.c. w. says something people are going to be thinking twice before taking their word for it we've reached out to the o.p.c. w. for comment over the latest the leak in the meantime we spoke to
8:07 pm
a journalist who attended a briefing by one of the organizations whistleblowers. the person who presented of these findings was a scientist and through and through he was not a politician at all he told us in the beginning he is set you can challenge me you can ask any question you want we just one tool have our voices heard he stressed the point that their findings were excluded from the final report it was completely the opposite actually and i mean the final report was based on the investigations of interior which was working out sites of syria in a country x. we do not know which this country is but you cannot find evidence on something that happened when you go to a different country you must go to the ground where it happened and you have to look at their. violent protests against a new citizenship law in india have reached of the capital new delhi since
8:08 pm
wednesday across the country 6 people have been killed and dozens more injured in demonstrations the muslim community says it is not only discriminatory against them but also on constitutional. oh yeah. the law in question would offer a faster track citizenship for migrants from some neighboring muslim majority countries however the list excludes muslim migrants themselves the indian government insists it is in no way discriminatory prime minister narendra modi says
8:09 pm
the law is intended to give respect to those who fled to india and were forced to live as refugees and called the protests deeply distressing however the demonstrations are gaining momentum particularly on the country's university campuses anger with prime minister modi's government has also been stoked by allegations of police brutality on sunday officers in new delhi stormed the jamia millia islamia university firing tear gas and detaining around 100 people another 100 were also injured as well while that did not follow violent protests the authorities now stand accused of beating up students and staff who described the police as a violent mob journalist sara khan who is also a student at the university says there was nowhere to run. because i think he's funny and oh and the police stopped and you know guess. that's not going this much to do once it's out me and yes now i'm going you know worse. the distance i'm going

a secular nation. as north korea celebrates yet another missile test washington has sent its representative to neighboring south korea during a briefing in seoul the u.s. special envoy revealed that washington is nowhere near reaching its denuclearization goals with pyongyang and is calling on them to continue talks. here today let me speak directly to our counterparts in north korea. it is time for us to do our jobs. let's get to stone. we are here and you know how to reach us the u.s. envoy also stressed to the president trump remains confident the north korean leader kim jong un is quote committed to the same goal as the u.s. r.t.c. version of comments now on how the tables have turned over the past few years. relations with north korea have been erratic from loathing to admiration go we are going down sideways across every dimension really. relationship with to me
8:12 pm
as you probably know korea. may get more interested the united states they will be met with fire fury but only have a very good relationship with him is on a suicide mission for himself while now the countries are back watching their relations freefall pyongyang fired the 1st shot literally through long range missile tests to rub american faces in it priceless data experience and new technologies gained in the recent tests will be fully applied to the development of another strategic weapon for definitely i'm reliably restraining and overpowering the nuclear threat of the us not a pleasant face rubbing for trump this is no one's idea of keeping america great establishing the denuclearization deal has been hailed as
8:13 pm
a trump's crowning moment as president despite it now seeming as far away as ever but with time thinking away and before north korea's latest test washington acted like end of year deadline was in its problem. we do not have a year and a deadline there's an artificial deadline set by the north koreans and as fortunately it's a deadline that they've set upon themselves fast forward to after the launch the u.s. special representative for north korea puts on his best poker face and flies out to south korea the same guy you've just listened to saying that the deadlines for pyongyang not them it's a universal time for new year resolutions but for trump it's way bigger than just that it's the result of his entire presidency 2 years ago he was the queen of the prom playing hard to get with pyongyang standing up his dates dishing out sanctions left and right now he's already conceded in his trade war with china backtracking
8:14 pm
on tariffs in exchange for a pinky promise from beijing so north korea wants to strike 2 while the election iron is hot and trump is soft i think for trump or kind of put him in a bind because the only thing you have going for him over for the humor is open dialogue with north korea. it goes nowhere because he refuses to offer a north korea anything exchange for demanding to know clarification that he's got nothing to show for reelection campaign simplied 3 year north korea and after the new year if there is no resumption of talks that they would resume their intermediate. i.c.b.m. program under clear weapons program of course i think in reality north korea would probably hold off on that and still hope that talks could resume but they're trying
8:15 pm
to encourage basically the u.s. to return to the negotiating table a resumption of tensions or resumption of dialogue that's choices up the united states and stead of offering north korea and through the u.s. hostile policy which threatens its right to survive oh and development then there can be no hope for a solution kim jong un and trump all known pen pals and the u.s. president enjoyed their correspondence a lot i got a very full letter from him yesterday with the letter. delivered. with very. little security i really. thought you might not enjoy this christmas gift north korea has already put under the white house tree though along with a few into continental firecrackers too late to help the new year we check out some other stories that are dot com this tuesday wherever gretta goes controversy inevitably follows the team climate firebrand has become embroiled in

8:17 pm
deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. all of us will hopes it has been absolutely true a baby but since a behavior that appears even in death and dying babies even if you never heard of same love you will love tickles by your parents. and then we learn how to use this in a more complex way i am one of the things that we learn is to have to join in with love to contagiously to love and somebody else loves even if you don't know why they're laughing.
