7:01 am
hacks could not have been carried out from abroad here on the program that we speak to many. well i don't buy into mindless dribble with any factual evidence and that's basically what they're what their situation zero evidence. prosecutors revealed the true extent of a us navy scandal with hundreds of officers and admirals accused of trading military secrets for sex money and alcohol they're being charged though not with espionage but with corruption. a warm welcome you're watching r.t. international broadcasting to you live from the russian capital i'm lucky aaron. a significant day for syria as the last islamic state stronghold in the country the city of abu kemal is liberated it was confirmed by the syrian army we'll show you
7:02 am
in just a moment pictures from the vicinity of the city where syrian and iraqi backed militias joined forces to surround kemal which is situated very close to the border between the two countries. p.p.p. . thank. you very much. the. forces from all countries participated in a joint operation to liberate this city which saw heavy clashes over a number of days in the area parties daniel hawkins has more details. why is this
7:03 am
victory so significant well it's one of the very final steps of the end of the self-proclaimed caliphate and an end to the flow of weapons and fighters across the border from iraq into syria now just two years ago islamic state controlled northern the heart of the country now is confined to just some desert areas villages and isolated pockets in syria and iraq now the town was captured by an amalgamation of different forces there was heavy operations proceed in the final attack by the russian air force in the region as well. so let's take a look at some of the factions on the ground which participated in capturing that
7:04 am
final stronghold the syrian army supported by militias and hezbollah attacked from the west communic ross the iraqi border and the popular mobilization units came from the south from the town of al qaim to support the syrian allies meaning the town was surrounded on these three sides it was very much a joint operation by multiple groups many people are asking what is next well as in northern parts of syria these developments bring rival forces in the region to head the syrian army its allies as the air force is just slightly further north of this map here. of course backed up by the u.s. as the syrian democratic forces an amalgamation of kurdish militias there pushing in from the north and the east these factions all have different interests it's unclear about washington how their support for their sphere will evolve after i suppose the feet there's a lot of negotiation compromise and reconciliation ahead but the fear among many is
7:05 am
that the end of the battle against maybe the start of new battles on other fronts within syria. well we've got reaction from experts on what the latest development means for syria that's a huge. territory and yes i would say. there looks like a that's almost washed up for. doesn't mean they can't commit acts of terrorism but it doesn't mean they controlled territory any more i think one thing that syria has in its favor is that. the eastern part of syria as a lot of syria's oil such as it is and so getting full control of eastern syria. deprives eisel of a lot of the revenues that i think that that region and that country will remain on stable for the first seeable future islamic state is one of many militant groups in
7:06 am
that country and given that i think that the civil war will continue so i do think that assad's power the syrian government's power is expanding throughout the country but i don't expect him to have all of the country under wraps because there's still room in you know tens of thousands of people prepared to fight against the syrian arab army and its militia. staying in the region the spots between iran and saudi arabia has escalated to after a missile attack in riyadh airport carried out by rebels in yemen iran's president warned sunday arabia on wednesday that it will achieve nothing by threatening that might have been wrong so often saudi arabia laid the blame for the attack on two wrong joe you go in you know the might and position of the republic people more powerful than you have been unable to do anything against the iranian people you're
7:07 am
not strong enough to do that. well some of the concerns that the ongoing and under reported proxy war between the two regional powers could turn into a direct confrontation and he's more on county have looks at how saudi arabia continues to fill to the fire recently barely a days seems to go by without saudi arabia making headlines and it almost always boils down to its arch enemy iran it is a game of chess that spans an entire region on every front in every country the saudis see iran's evil influence. the who's the rebels in yemen who saudi arabia has been bombing for many years fire a rocket riyadh that the saudis could only describe as
7:08 am
a rainy and aggression. iran's role and its direct command of its hooty proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression the coalition's command considers this a blatant active military aggression by the iranian regime and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of saudi arabia the saudis also ready to throw their allies under the bus to create an excuse to denigrate iran. q the lebanese prime minister holding a successful meeting with the rain ians and then going to saudi arabia and out of the balloon without warning declaring his resignation while launching into a tirade about evil reigning in influence plunging the region into chaos and destruction. were over iran is present it plans discord and destruction and
7:09 am
interference in our countries in lebanon syria iraq yemen where i would like to say to iran and its followers that they will be losers in their intervention in the arab nation move wake up because in that in the past and their hands in the region will become. you lose a poor and gain an opening then there's the blockade of cattle. a trade embargo severed ties ultimatums and warnings punishment some say for cattle daring to deal with the rain ians and then there's syria the saudi sponsored rebellion is dying their jihad just allies are losing an asset is winning this isn't what riyadh planned we hope that and expect that during the interim period of the of the transition period said will exit because he has absolutely no
7:10 am
role to play in the. and while syria may have expected the shit committed to riyadh here the saudis around picking up attacks on the run on other fronts true this is an international game of chess with nations and populations at stake ironic given that last year so do you arabia's highest islamic cleric banned chess saying that the game causes hatred between people and even when played on a giant jew political scale well it looks like he was right. now russia's media watchdog questions to retaliate if the u.s. adopts a proposed new or targeting russian outlets we can discuss this with jacqueline very good he joins me live in the studio thanks for coming in john mccain now what prompted this statement from russia's communications watchdog well this morning
7:11 am
comes in response to the national defense authorization act for next year which congress is currently reviewing and that legislation specifies the budget of the u.s. department of defense and hefty sums are found there within the cap is seven hundred billion dollars for national defense and even notes that that's in fact twenty six billion dollars more than the president actually asked for so it's no small change but that is the setting that aside it's of course a defense act and it should come as no surprise that there's a whole page dedicated to russia under the headline of countering russian aggression and in that section huge sums of money are proposed to be dead dedicated to a number of friends from authorizing billions to reassure america's nato allies in europe against russian threats to set this setting aside three hundred fifty million dollars for assisting the security of ukraine and then it goes on to call for the development of a comprehensive strategy to counter the threats and influence of russia and of
7:12 am
course brings us to the issue of media. the most interesting point there is that cable and satellite providers may not be required to carry out to carry any video content that is own funded or controlled by the kremlin says and it should be restricted and of course all those accusations have been refuted by our channel thing that they're really just based in politics and not on actual facts the russian president himself recently commented on what sort of response will be seen if russian media in the us is in fact restricted to just. what we're seeing right now and what is happening around our media isn't comparable and much less powerful than our u.s. and u.k. counterparts i don't even know what to call it they're flipping everything upside down. we're going to mirror any action they take and we will take action fast as soon as we see any steps being taken to restrict their media outlets so of course it's important to note that this bill has yet to be approved and it only says that
7:13 am
providers may be required may not be required to show russian content but it's still worrying them nonetheless and of course russia has already promised a strict response if it does happen ok thanks for those details i thought is jacqueline let's continue the conversation now and go over to our guest gary the managing editor at the duran that website thanks for coming on the program mr gary so why does russian sponsored media even feature in a u.s. national defense. well you have to go back to the russian hatred that is being peddled by the mainstream media by a clique of cosmopolitan internationalist based in the us and elsewhere by the us government and by big business interests who don't want to see their ratings being bitten off by odd t.v. which many people are flocking to because of its more modernized approach to the provision of information the hatred of russian culture goes back frankly
7:14 am
to the fourth crusade when the orthodox christianity which the majority of russians practice was attacked going much more recently we can talk about the mccarthy i read scares of the twentieth century where anyone who was thought to be this time not an orthodox christian but a communist was somehow tied in with russia it all goes back to something healthier john mccain and spoke about in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century whereby the western imperialist powers would need to do you russia as a pivot area if they were able if they were going to succeed and they're all to meet desire which is the conquest of asia now this highfalutin some would say historical analysis is the basis of the hatred the way the hatred is expressing itself is in the most crass and most pedestrian most vulgar guttural ways possible where we see people going off were violated no law our t.
7:15 am
has not been accused in a court of law of libel which is really the only test for fake news everything else is covered by the first amendment in the us and other similar free speech laws in other countries no one has accused me of doing anything wrong except for the fact that people are watching on t.v. and or t. has an opinion and these opinions go against the corporate in does. media complex in the united states that are all in it together to paraphrase george call them there's a big club and or in it the fight the russian media media even features in a defense the actor would assume that channels like r.t. pose a direct threat to u.s. safety now the us has always claimed to be a vocal defender of freedom of speech do you think this act is consistent with that plane. well no of course not this is essentially the us saying the first amendment
7:16 am
is being thrown out the window because that's all that t. is doing it's using its right to speak freely and publish freely and broad calls freely all of which is covered by the first amendment of the us constitution and the only other things they doing is participating in the free market far from being a communist plot as many of these people stuck in one nine hundred fifty three seem to think o. t. actually wants to inject money into the us economy i'll say it again because this is crucial ot wants to inject money into the us economy create us jobs us politicians have a problem with that hate and the absurd managing editor at the duran dot com anthem gary thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. thank you for the cia director is under fire for meeting a former intelligence official who claims that the alleged hack of the d.n.c. was in fact a leak will be discussing that after this short break stay with us. level

7:18 am
if if if. if if if. if. if currently are. hello welcome back cia director michael has come under fire for meeting a former intelligence official over the alleged hack of the democratic party back in twenty sixteen the u.s. intelligence community has been laying the blame for the haqqani mosco met with william binney a former national security agency official turned whistleblower bin eve believes the alleged hack of the democratic national committee was in fact an inside leak carried out by a d.n.c. employee he also coauthored a memo to the president on the issue back in july so let us remind you about the
7:19 am
d.n.c. had announced by a cyber security firm working for the d.n.c. in june twenty sixth it was blamed on two russian linux groups the next day an anonymous hacker two point zero claims responsibility for the attack something and confirmed by the d.n.c. then later he also took credit for a breach in july and at the end of that month wiki leaks released thousands of the democratic party's e-mails on my colleague neil harvey spy who took legal experience clear that it was a local. who was in the data for instead of details about the bratz inquiry but what did this is aka fat leonard luxury hotels and cash in exchange for information about where u.s. navy ships were going in the pacific ocean he did this in order to earn contracts now fat leonard aka leonard francis is the san diego jail so giving away military information launched an inquiry into corruption now these navy officers admitted to
7:20 am
giving away ship schedules and they pleaded guilty to bribery but leaking and giving up classified government information under u.s. law as it called bribery it's called espionage why is the espionage act. not being applied to corrupt navy officers christian saucer took some photos with his cell phone in a classified area of a u.s. nuclear submarine nobody paid him anything and he didn't leak them to anyone he simply lost his cell phone well he ended up getting sentenced to a year in prison now his mother thinks her son got a raw deal in two thousand and nine there was no cell phone ban on submarines at that time technology was new and didn't catch up maybe hadn't caught up yet i really have no doubt in my mind that it was a twenty two year old guy that wanted to take it out of where he worked yeah we were already took pictures and so phones were allowed and now when it comes to whistleblowers who reveal u.s. forces killing civilians or the n.s.a. is massive surveillance it doesn't take long for them to be charged with espionage
