9:01 pm
feeling that something else, all the goals are driving them. it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia. and i think is down here, 20 years in the u. s. coalition invaded afghanistan would become free now in meltdown. families having to resort to unsinkable measures when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark. sorry. so i'm forced to tell a few of my kids to feed others, and there's no option leverage mentions from ah, this is been used on scene to national. my name is you nasha. paula, thanks for joining us. and facebook whistleblower is being accused of bias. it was discovered a sheet has ties to the democrats. it comes to us days off, a shrew, sad. the company was hominy, children, and stoking divisions,
9:02 pm
and an impassioned plea to congress for a crime down on the social media john and but i'm here today because i believe facebook's products harm children, stoked division and week in our democracy. the companies leadership knows how to make facebook and instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical prophets afore people. congressional action is needed. they won't solve this crisis without your help. process. how again as being represented by co founder whistle blow aid a john ty, who himself is a former official in the obama administration, the out the co founder of the organization which helps whistleblowers with legal aid aid. mog said he was a legal representative for alexander bittman, the white house staff whose function trumps fast impeachment. while small, it turns out of francis hogan, has been regularly donating to democrat affiliated organizations or working to get
9:03 pm
more democratic candidates elected throughout the u. s. and now mox blumenthal editing chief of the greys and told us how good is looking for great government regulation of social media. her testimony dove tales very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media and to take out their political adversaries, but also their advancement of the national security state's own censorship agenda to target the media of official enemies. to target any media that contravenes imperial us goals or advances, what's considered misinformation which can be advanced by anyone. francis, how again was pushing that agenda and yes, she is represented by bryson juliette, a public relations firm founded by a former obama aid. it's providing her with strategic communications advice,
9:04 pm
and that very same aid is a advisor to the center for humane technology, which she has worked at in which has been taking on facebook. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda, or i bet it looks like it's not just the democrats that have taken a stand against facebook. and the whole of congress seems to have taken a unified stance not doesn't his testimony benefit the republican caused a, i think of. 2 you know, it could, it could benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all is a much more insidious agenda that how going outlined she has explicitly called for bass, beefing up facebook's counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named
9:05 pm
me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. and that counter espionage unit is actually part of a facebook's threat intelligence division led by ben nimmo, who has been prolific in whipping up the threat of so called russian bots and russian meddling through facebook. so this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. what impact say a thing had testimony will happen? social media regulation, if any. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship, more intervention from the intelligence services, and the reorientation of these social media sites. to target official
9:06 pm
u. s. enemies per her recommendation. today mark's 20 yes. as the u. s. and his allies invaded afghanistan, toppling they taliban regime. and now in the waco the west and pull out many questions are still being asked. not least why and a ton of been offered to honda. osama bin laden was rejected by the bush administration that led to 2 decades of wool countless lies low, stunned, and banned the militants bank in charge of our siena. correspondent, murat, gas, damp reports now from carmel on remove. the conflict has achieved the afghan born and is just shy of it's it's 20th anniversary, the the war a vengeance that was launched by the united states as revenge for 911 and quickly morphed into something else. one of the most protracted conflicts in modern history and exercising and nation building before losing all lame and tylenol towards the
9:07 pm
end. neither the united states nor any of its allies still knew what it is that they hoped to achieve. here. the end result is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. metallic banners is back in control. and more absolutely than it was before the united states invaded afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the holds of congress in parliament, in europe, and in the press and in there on television, internationally is, is who the we blame. we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend the depth of corruption and poor leadership in her senior ranks. that we did not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president gunny of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp why there was only so much for which
9:08 pm
and for home. many of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year balled by administration, draw down not a 19 month or 19 day neo. these scandal is nowhere near over the americans calling it been ghazi on steroids, the republicans as well as ordinary americans that she the end of the war is humiliating. for america, they want someone held responsible, the biden, the miss administration, as was the pentagon, so far, they have done their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as the catastrophe. they argue that the fault is with many american administrations that, that preceded them. and that is ignoring the tremendous financial cost of the war. some that could have made the lives of americans and many of their allies at the taxpayers so much better and so much easier. ah
9:09 pm
ah ah ah ah ah, we are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and yet we have the highest child poverty rates of almost any country on earth. from the perspective of a civilian, there is scott evidence here on the ground in afghanistan of any of that money
9:10 pm
other making its way here. aside from half finished clinics, him and broken roots, testament to record breaking levels of corruption that, that so brilliant siphoned off into the bank accounts of corrupt officials into the pockets of private contractors. though the evidence of these billions being here is in the hands of the taliban, the guns that they wield, stamped with made in america, the vehicles military vehicles left behind it, industrial quantities. the taliban are of course jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here, the human rights, the tolerance, the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have after 20 years of, and selection and rebellion. believe they won. ah,
9:11 pm
ah, i virtually any measure this war was a failure in some respects, it even made things worse. from a humanitarian perspective or a 3rd of afghans near enough are on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside the drugs manufactured and export to that of, of galveston, kill countless youth world wide. from a geopolitical perspective, the taliban considered an international pariah since its inception is now having to be negotiated with it. i counted with even the un bob from a security perspective. yes, al qaeda either ghana stud may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place. and that is isis which has bound to the
9:12 pm
challenge to afghanistan. dominance by the taliban. afghanistan bank have almost run out of cash and people running out a 3rd less than 2 months after the turn of and take her that added to that foreign aid is in short, supply with western down is reluctant to deal with the new government charities or warning of a major humanitarian crisis, and i know this is not easy, but there needs to be some solution to the financial flows into afghanistan to ensure that at least salaries can be paid and that essential supplies, power, and water being 2 of them can be procured. the absence of that will seriously exacerbate vulnerability for ordinary outcomes and was five's an african man living and die poverty admitted to bay to be the unimaginable son would say, in defensible act of trying to sell his own children. he claimed that it was an
9:13 pm
attend just to get money to feed the rest of his family. what another story. and they go off the game. regencia lou, joe had a good business and a happy life and could do similar, but then the war began. shall we migrated here? my savings were exhausted formula. they had some people got some aid here. hodge, but the others did not. my pockets are empty now and i have no option left but to sell some of my kids to work and to fight for the survival of my other kids with the money i get that way. but if you could make him a patient, when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark side sellers have a g. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there is no option left from the previous government did not help me, but i hope this new one will support me. i'm not asking for support for myself alone, but for all these people living here, like they are all from my tribe where they measure all of us refugees. here are one families. i asked for financial help for every one of good as the russian foreign ministry has filed a counter request to the o. p. c. w to the united states and 44 other countries officially submitted
9:14 pm
a list of questions to the bounty demanding moscow gave details about the alleged poisoning of cramming critic say. no, only russia has said several times. they global chemical weapons won't dog is blonde k refusing to cooperate anyone who calls on russia to conduct an investigation incorporation with the o. p. c. w into what happened to miss in a valley needs to once again be reminded of the facts. a year ago, rusher applied to the technical secretary of the o. p. c. w, for technical assistance on the article 8 of the convention. but we never got any help in all was lost when a volunteer fell ill on an internal fly to moscow. after an emergency landing, he was taken to hospital and place and use coma. he was lazy air lifted to germany at the request of his family, doctor's in berlin said no, only had it been exposed to the nova choked nerve agent, and ultimately blamed the russian government. both russian officials and medical professionals who treated and have only claimed no poisonous substances were
9:15 pm
detected in his body while he was in the russian hospital. moscow has repeatedly asked both germany and the o. p. c. w, for joint investigation. after making a recovery, alec st. i've only returned to moscow where he was arrested and sentenced to 2 years in trail for breaking his parole conditions in a corruption case. and we spoke to the rush, represent c, r o b o, p c, w alexander show gain, who gave us a fast hand information on the latest developments. ah, status, obsidian t. there's a feeling that something else. ah, the goals are driving them. judge for yourself today, i was not allowed to speak for more than an hour. the pretext would different. for example, the absence of the bulgarian representative. he should have been reading the appeal of 45 countries. i asked the ambassadors of the united states, great britain to britney not want to hear the answer from russia. there was no desire to listen to us. apparently, uh,
9:16 pm
the goals are being pursued. it is possible that this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia, america. ah, we wanted to do a joint investigation and what do you think the technical secretariat began to drag out the whole thing? one of the excuses was that there were no similar incidents from the u. k. all the u. s. were putting forward a counter request within the same framework and expect that france sweden and the technical secretariat will never less ounce of the same questions that we asked earlier. we close this subject with a request from 45 countries and sent a counter request. the ball is on their side. ah, those kids to go. some nato countries are working with substances called navi chalk . i recall the statements of the check president who said in his country there were laboratories where work is carried out with the substance called a tooth rio which can be attributed to navi chuck. the pretty sight admitted that
9:17 pm
in their potent down laboratory work was carried out with substances from the family of navi choke. the united states is the only country that has not freed itself from chemical weapons. $140.00 peyton's have been developed there for the use of ammunition that contains chemical warfare agents such as navi, choke, boiling, gas prices have been reduced and more the center after intervention from lent him, a painting that has said russia ramp up exports to europe and dressing the countenance energy crisis. on wednesday, the president added that moscow was continues commitment to ukraine in regards to gas transit. as bloom, as she said, she guessed from believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper and at $3000000000.00 a year, it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transitive
9:18 pm
gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to put anyone in a difficult position including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second has no need to undermine gas pumps. confidence is an absolute reliable pond that in all respects lazy my patrons statements and this subsequent. let's hop in the gas prices. have seen some of the mains. camida changed their tone towards the no stream to pipeline. and more generally on russia's role as europe's key energy supply and concerns of moscow's alleged attempts to use oil and gas as leverage, have lessened significantly. russia wants it to be approved. i don't think russia's really doing anything wrong here. you know, europe has a supply crunch. russia has the gas to supply it. russia doesn't necessarily benefit from payoff for the market. they want high stable prices and they want to
9:19 pm
be seen of the reliable partner, some words soothing words, i guess which we rarely get from mr. potent actually helped reverse that. 3540 percent jump over night. natural gas over in europe is an element of russia playing politics, but there is also an element of a mommy having been invested in no, it's been do not from the russian side from the european side as well. and ongoing german chancellor angle, michael has been vocal in support of russia as a supplier partner speaking at an a u bowl can summit, his lavinia, shes tries, that moscow's always stuck to its contractual obligations. the fog. it is a gift. this, if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfill as it stands. now, that is not the case. that is, there are no orders that russia has said no, we will not deliver those to you and we're not pumping gas through the crenan pipelines. rather, russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is
9:20 pm
really, isn't being ordered vista now, the russian leader also put the current crisis in the european gas market. down to the e use rushed push for green transition, coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contract to emitted a sport trading. the current volatility con, betrays bank to april this year, but it all came to had this week leaving european citizens to delve yet deeper into already under strained pockets. ah.
9:21 pm
so maintaining a trusted energy partnership between russia and europe is a key focus on international gas forum taking place in saint petersburg. in stage 3 of the gathering and our correspondent, any tranquil that on the side lines of the rent, he caught up with the seal of the association of european businesses. tangier shilling. in the end, her pragmatism prevailed. it also showed that the interests of different stakeholders need to be taken into account. there is no sense in insisting on a, on one perspective and denying the to the fact that others view a project differently. you need to sit together. so it also showed the need for international cooperation the,
9:22 pm
the fact that now the stalemate has been overcome and that we have avoided her. a complete blockage of the project is actually very good news. as europe, as a soon as association of european businesses, we've also always been very clear that we are against the application of sanctions, especially in an extra territorial perspective that we think this is a purely commercial project. and we also think that the european energy security is something that should be decided in europe. natural gas has an actually tremendous role to play as a transition shoe. we are here talking now about the traditional fuel mix that we need to move away from and move to greener, our energy sources. but there is also a way how we need to bridge this process between the status,
9:23 pm
that is the current status and, and, and future desires status. in the wake of the gas prices, spain has said the european commission should negotiate gas contract on behalf of all human mistakes. instead of the present system of individual nations, a grain contracts, the proposal or government is making is that the commission negotiates on behalf of all 27 member states. what we propose is a strength and cooperation. however, not everyone's happy with mon trans proposal with critics say it encroaches on the sovereignty of national states. i'll tend to for germany, policy and e p a back believe this key would run counter to the eas own current holes. clearly contravene for article $194.00 of the eel treaties. there's a very bad habit on the part of the institutions themselves, as well as many benefit states to disregard its own goal. they think
9:24 pm
their national interest justifies a breach of the treaty. they don't hesitate to ask others to disregard the treaty. now, as a purely hypothetical scenario, if the treaty didn't dis allied, would i support this proposal? but it depends on the perspective isn't necessarily sensible for a country to shop it's energy supplies with everyone else. this pretty little solidarity of the power to bother you repeat countries with germany general day. so i'm not sure i've bought a solution. on the other hand, what is the german government likely to because it ever has any regard for it's a country's national interest. it's quite conceivable that the german government
9:25 pm
will choose to disregard the treaty and do what isn't in its own country's interest . or has had it delegation to nathan newly hong to with allies appearing vague and offering reasons why and o. s diplomats of bond from its principles. h key. moscow says they move shows natives clearly not interested in improving relations. is done a quarter, has no nato made that decision to expel those 8 russian diplomats on wednesday. and so, why was this diplomatic mission cut in half? well, according to nato, no reason in particular, this decision is not linked to in the, a particular events of esau undeclared, russian intelligence officers, ah, on the, on the we have seen an increase in ocean malign activities. sky news said that these diplomats were suspected of espionage and even suspected of killing
9:26 pm
people. i mean is quite a 180 from nothing. in particular, right now the kremlin has responded dot in the shock. this moved by nature surprised us, but it was not an expected. we were shocked plates and pertinence because there were no official explanations of the reasons behind it. at the same time, a campaign started on social media. a smear campaign characterized by number fakes and straight up disinformation, voice from the sight of nita. now russia's foreign minister, a survey. laugh rob did have a talk with stolen berg about convening the nato. russia council for talks, but so far nothing's been agreed on. so we're gonna have to see how relations go from here. and that brings us up today for the sound. john is some news in about 30 minutes up next news. he's a nurse with
