i do think that the most basic level when we realize how we've entered into. a permanent state of war like would often proponents of. counter-terrorism on a global scale think of as a long war but a war without end something like that. and i think that what we've accepted is a political regime that is sustained by fear is a very old it's a very old political tactic i mean machiavelli asin the prince is it better for the prince to be feared or loved and his conclusion is because the locus of fear the the source of fear resides in him in the prince it can be constant for his rule whereas the locus of love resides in the people it's in their power and so for them could be tossed in a long lasting means so much already opens
a question that he probably doesn't provide us the answer with what would it mean to have our social arrangement like the basis of our social choices. be founded on love. i don't think one has to justify the cost and nature of the national security state one just has to keep the people fearful enough to support it but what i want to bring to your attention today is the potentially much more sinister nexus between iraq and the okada terrorist network. every word in that speech was gone over by the director of central intelligence and his deputy director after so there's nothing that i made up it was nothing that i stuck in there and in fact some people tried to stick extra things in there that the intelligence community wouldn't verify with multi-sourcing and i said no powell grabbed me physically which was unlike him and drug me into a space at the cia at langley and said throw all the material in my
presentation about terrorism out cut it out out this amount this is just within an hour george tenet the director of central intelligence made a spectacular bombshell presentation we have just learned from a hollow evill al qaida operative under interrogation about significant contacts between baghdad. and al qaida. this was devastating. here's the director of central intelligence telling the secretary of state that he has interrogated evidence well the secretary turned to me and said put it back in. to continue to have a deep interest in acquiring weapons of mass destruction as with the story as the car we had his network i can trace the story of a senior terrorist operative telling how iraq provided training in these weapons to
al qaeda later i learned that that was shake out libby that had to happen just instantly happened it happened months before that he'd been water boarded in egypt when he did this no u.s. personnel were present and he had recanted within a couple of weeks and we never were told about that every statement i make today's backed up by sources solid sources these are not assertions we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence we were indisputable. we were allowed to. at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger as karl rove famously said to this reporter you know you guys are reality based community is the big media by the time you figured out you know what's wrong with our reality we've moved on the creation of another reality digital cell or cause to come into the possession of saddam hussein weapons of mass
destruction did the united states to him absolutely not. iran iraq was on such a scale that i was on the iranian side and i went down to the bottom i was actually given the gas kit and so let me take the train back right all the way up to tehran and the carriages were crowned with iranian soldiers who'd been gassed somewhere just coffee rush and one man who was reading the koran themselves and put a handkerchief blows up his lips. gradually to cargo's became permeated with a sort of $36.00 and i realised it was the smell of the gas they were coughing up from the lungs i was going around the car does open the windows and night is trying to clean the train out of the smell of obviously chemical. bombs to 2003 i was being attacked on radio shows especially from america you know complaining about the american invasion or you pro saddam and i said excuse me i
was on the train of iranians gassed by the iraqis and the chemical components came from the united states at the very time that you will rumsfeld was meeting saddam you were meeting with saddam hussein i think we have some video. of that meeting tell me what was going on during this this why did you get this video from the iraqi television is on the iraqi television when did they give it to you recently you know we back then we dug this out of the c.n.n. library i see. isn't that interesting. there are you know. our war on terror. begins with al qaida. but it does not in.
this very very is war on terror is irrational it's like saying. a war on the whole war on vine and so on that it's nonsense you stepping into this possibility of confidential wall. now where you're a little kid reassuring us and we kept believing him because you don't want to think you know prime minister receiving you in the route to a war one is nothing was serious. when the serious fraud office launched its investigation into all the crimes that we were covering it turned out that many of these arms deals had been forced through by tony blair personally he said to the case you don't sell them in which ever there was a dispute ever in government he always found that. the serious fraud office go to the brink of uncovering the secret swiss bank accounts by which he was from owning
money to the saudi royal family the swiss said we're going to notify the back to tell holders. that blessed swung into action. or to the serious fraud office to close down their investigation. and said if the investigation continued they would withdraw all national security cooperation which would lead in the words of prince bandar to blood on the streets of london. story we've been banging away out for more than 5 years they really woke up to it because everybody could see was a huge cover up the spectacle of a british prime minister closing bell of a criminal investigation for reasons were you aware that your government was approving pavements to a friend of president bush's british aerospace is back system is that why you suspended a folding inquiry. that went out talking about national security interests
that supposed to be a cop that trumps all of those i don't believe the investigation is that it would have led anywhere except to the complete wreckage of a vital strategic relationship for our country in terms of fighting terrorism in terms of the middle east in terms of british interests that. say these things absolutely stunning it seems to be a very expensive way of organizing drive payment. money. i'm going to fulfill the repeated promises apologise to the people and come i could be you know we've all pots been. pretty.
many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know world of big partners new things lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical. again it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
direct. what is true what is faith. in a world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or remain in the shallows. in the united states presidential candidates debate the future of the u.s. and the world. max kaiser and stacy herbert dig into the burning questions of this election cycle one topic every week. tax student debt trade wars corporate money universal basic income and more catch up with what's front running this sunday exclusively on r.t. .
black came to south africa specifically to lobby to be the british weapons manufacturers the biggest contract on this deal. and the option that they presented was 2 and a half times more expensive than the plane that the south african air force actually wanted. a systems real performance real advantage. as money was about to step down from public life its successor tabone becky made the decision to spend $10000000000.00. quite scarce public resources. on this weaponry that we didn't need. rather than provide lifesaving medication for the almost 6000000 south africans who were then living with hiv aids. the primary
reason for those deals was that around $300000000.00 in bribes were paid to senior politicians. and sadly to the african national congress the a.n.c. my own party. i was called in by a senior member of the n c's national executive council he said to me look i'm going this is a battle you cannot win because this money bribe. we used to fund our 999 election . and almost immediately i'm asked to make a statement to the press that says there's nothing to investigate. it's all over. and i looked at him and i said no it's not. i won't be able to live with myself. if i stop this investigation but at the same time i'm also realizing. that this is
the end of my political career. the heads of government of the sales people in chief of their countries large arms contractors. and this is the template used by large defense contractors around the world. companies might be another me sort of effect to be part of a government but they're effectively above the law corruption is not merely a dirty little detail on top of the arms trade it's actually in a lot of cases what drives the international arms trade many of these deals would not happen if they did not provide opportunities for personal enrichment i would be offended if i thought. we had the monopoly on corruption. to pay more for the road transport we made around here on back for 20
years it was then paid $6000000.00 every year the man or. 5 i was being dragged out right at the last 2nd i'm going to still favor remind everyone that this guy is a war criminal and i just say actually called the record what he said about iraq in this completely and totally untrue i've never had a discussion with them now i'm not suggesting that was a phone call between gay people with an inbred exactly what happened most j.p. morgan and the consortium of other banks didn't fact prop up the whole iraqi economy to the tune of about 2 and a half 1000000000 not 20000000000 other bit nervous that day then 6 months after he left office blair some a sign by j.p. morgan for 5 $1000000.00 every year i was just trying to enlighten the public that there was corruption involved and not just bad decision making i'd like to find out oh this. is to access the coolant there must be a back door in because they don't want to tear time and there was
a court room directly underneath the court room the player was in and it was left on not so i went through that run up 2 floors by the fire escape and then to the door that calls itself by this time my heart was pounding like i'm really going mad and i actually lost my courage for the moment i went and sat down in a low in a bathroom i found a gent's toilet that i didn't see ring my mother and said listen i'm here in washington do you think i should still go when my mom said you're gone you won't get another chance and i thought that's it i mean the most. obvious thing. that hope has 2 beautiful daughters and courage anger at the way things are and courage to see that they don't remain the way they are. when. you can serve 2 sets of principles privilege and power justice and drugs the
more you make compromises with those who serve privilege and power point diminish the capacity for justice and trust. and. i think that. the rebel seeks to keep those who have power fearful. under the. sounds that. have been. ordered to go. unappreciated listen to them without it. well but of all that the feud has on t.v. . or there which we will see to either put it to be but it does appear to be a year of have one should it look to feed the study. now it means in why i don't. swim the no no not to come to much stuff it could be a. 2 man hope under george bush. who
watches the inside and the minute i see them coming to school. who work on. the general anyhow the men who are cut in. peace that's what we want freedom and peace the good up. up. up. your little field who will live who want to see. when the who dollar an hour just to her feet. and they just push them and. you can bet that. they could but in the shadow that up they say something we don't know who would buy the how can him if you want too much coffee want to t'other going to be full. damage how about a lead up to a silo let me and i be a damn how man add up how well it's had he did you let you call i do george and then tell us all in there not be a stock will only come to it when i can x.
amount that we had the end up in you then nick and it but if you so well accepted it to john and that i mean let mr. george bush who would been with darwin and the. others just. in time well i can no hold the hoof and. i am now a bit now and. so one of the guys threw a shoe at. they me. but my. going to be made a few. that just put in terms of something.
that i didn't know known just in the. movie. i'm going to reach is the source of the l a times report paragraph one of us authorities say column one still u.s. officials say said one u.s. justice department counterterrorism official column 2 officials say u.s. authorities say u.s. officials say if those official said the officials confirmed american officials complained they said that u.s. officials. u.s. officials stressed column 3 u.s. authorities said jordanian officials said we're going to strike. no laughter please we haven't finished yet several u.s. officials said column 4 u.s. official said several american official said officials say say u.s. officials but u.s. officials said one u.s. counterterrorism official said i'm not joking there it is that is the journalism
you're getting fed i sometimes think the l a times the new york times here because american officials say. i denounce the call to invade iraq publicly in their times issued me a formal. written reprimand which is what you get before you're fired under union rules to stop speaking out against the war i've been a middle east bureau treat for me i'd better iraq than 7 years in the middle east. how can you come out of gaza not being free. what's being done to those people how can you come out of the sudan solid or. dozens of other places i better not be. i've seen the bodies of a lot of children which i can't forget. you
know especially having done it for 20 years and. dostoevsky 7 is the inability to love and that's what kills people. i fully get why people blow their brains out it's really. and i don't use love as a kind of a hole mark schmaltzy you know we all gotta love each other. i'm saying that the only way you're healed from those experiences is by re-establishing a connection. with that kind of power with another human being and if you can't do that you don't survive and i have friends couldn't do it they're not here.
it's you know the power of love to transcend time and it looks like a ga you'd be too out for that $38.00 that we used to have a woman or loaches amiga and it fired $4000.00 rounds per minute one of the manifestations of the national security state especially in the in the sort of apple j it's arrived at today. is that it destroys diplomacy it destroys the will to diplomacy and it destroys the skill for diplomacy. if you're a small state like we were for 150 years in in essence these are these spain france england and even russia you've got to be exquisitely good at diplomacy you got to
be able to talk yourself out of lots of things and make deals and compromises and so forth but if you're the world's henchman you don't deal with anybody you smack him you use your military and you smack him. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to like to be prosperous like them before 3 of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in my college. first city. the world is driven by shaped by those.
clicked. playing. and very well might continue watching on since last. thousands of american men and women choose to serve in the country's military and the decision. every song came to a complete. the day that i was raped instructed him you know told to shut up or they'd kill me and i see how it destroyed my life any screamed at me and he made me come in the gram my arm and he write me with his birthing area if you take into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation and it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military rape is a very very traumatizing tat happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen from
women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished than the offender by hand and almost 10 year career which i was very invested in and i gave that up to report a sex offender who was not even put to justice or put on the registry this is simply an issue of power and violence male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there to prey upon whether that's a man or women. you know world of big new law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. 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 for washington
closely watching the hawks. you know sars claims he's dying in the u.k. prison plied with sedatives and subjected to 23 hours of soul if you can find that the day we hear from this on his friends he was told the chilling details of a call from the wiki leaks co-founder on christmas eve. julian rang me because he he spend christmas with me and my family in 2010 while on bail one time ago you sounded awful and he said to me look i'm slowly dying. if any nuclear deal is as good as dead if you use countries bow to u.s. pressure that's a message from the ground in russia and stop the talks in moscow also took a listen.
