to preserve the set. up of it. in the. hospital he would be useful if. he were talking to the. kids who are on the list immediately you it's i do believe. that a lot of it i think about tom and i scared but i'm about the same as art when i was up the money into the magazine. taking a long look like mark was almost. to say to each. their own place of who has a long. long way off if you meet. other people more dolphins and that was on the. list.
11:01 am
i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us is over one trillion dollars and. more than ten point zero or more in tempe each day. eighty five percent of global will you want to be old for bridge with six percent market so thirty percent is what is your home with four hundred to five hundred three persnickety first shirt and one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollar. but don't let the numbers over the world. the only number you need to remember is one one zero you know for
11:02 am
a minute the one and only boom but. now we're back with ca a battering role for what larson former top cia official and the chair decade better and also agency talking about the spy bureau's role in today's united states internal and external policies are off my co-pay oh ash just recently about payouts over russia's intelligence verus to protect the american people as he put it so hostile with the rick threatening sanctions aside russia and the u.s. are still programatic enough to work together on some issues right. well that's right so feel it's really important that professionals in the intelligence business
11:03 am
not cease cooperation even at the hardest times we have a long history between the u.s. and russia that goes back in the soviet days of setting aside our most grievous complaints against one another to cooperate in areas like counterterrorism and sometimes on counterintelligence and other issues that impact on both on our bilateral relations and i applaud the recent meeting of the three russian intelligence. visits chiefs in washington with director pompei and others i think it's a great move toward to reinforce the idea that we must continue to cooperate in areas of common interest of both countries now obviously the congress is up in arms as an american intelligence she was meeting why would the law makers be against this if it does bring tangible results in the fight against terrorism. well i know some people in congress and i interact quite a bit with congress too if you will inform and advise specifically on the
11:04 am
areas that we need to talk with one another to continue keeping our country safe both of our countries that's in american interest to not see any russians die in terrorist attacks as it is in russian interest to prevent any terrorist attacks in the united states or elsewhere in the world so i don't think there's any dispute on that in congress and i think maybe some of the posturing is frankly political as opposed to substantive i haven't heard anyone say we shouldn't be talking to one another on counterterrorism issues democrat senator chuck schumer has demanded publicly naming everyone who had contact with their russian intelligence delegation and we want that sort of all across the board disclosure being damaging for the nation. yes i think it sends the wrong message if if i were to talk to senator schumer i would i would certainly urge him not to politicize you talked about politicizing intelligence earlier this would be an example of it if we don't do
11:05 am
this cooperation with it but between one another in areas such as. exchanging information and analysis on the terrorist groups and their activity whether it's in syria or around the world in the caucasus in them in the u.s. we should all be fired so we have to have the courage to do that it's in my experience of i was involved in the earliest if you will lays on work between the u.s. and russia at the time of the breakup of the soviet union and i don't recall a time when three intelligence chiefs all came together to washington such as just happen and so i take it as a very positive signal of a desire to do more and i hope both sides can find the strength to do that. so this is just a chance for politicians to fill out a t.v. friendly blaming spies right and left because on the other hand surely they must care about the actual issues of national security right yes i hope so and i have i
11:06 am
have a deep respect for senator schumer and i i quote i would question this based on what i've seen in the media and i hope behind it all it's not a seriously questioning why we would be doing this at this time i would also add that again this is a somewhat unorthodox few for someone like me i'm not a believer in applying sanctions to people that are doing their jobs we have a long history of of trying to avoid that sort of politicization of intelligence so i think we try to have to try to find out find a way to deescalate the politicization of intelligence activity it would help again if both sides particularly in this case i would have to put more pressure on the russian side to stop interfering in domestic affairs with intelligence activity and that would set a better environment to deescalate the rising tensions on
11:07 am
a political level that the fact that intelligence committees on capitol hill haven't been briefed about this mean that the administration has no trust in congress. i don't think i would go that far sophia i think it reflects the very sharp political dividing lines right now in our country and not just between the democrats and republicans but between within the parties themselves i think the democrats are struggling to reestablish their identity to decide what part or wing of the democratic party will move forward into the next election cycles and i think the republican party is trying to decide how much it supports the president some do some don't as you know i'm not the true betraying any secrets here so i think there is there are various conflict and tensions and instabilities within both parties again having watched this for much of my over sixty years i have seen other times in our country when we've seen just as confused
11:08 am
and dazed and we generally emerge out of it stronger than we enter that so i'm overall confident that we'll get out of this phase that we're in stronger than we were before we entered it so one terror attack has already been prevented thanks to the cia sharing intelligence with moscow and put it has personally thanked the americans for their help in that how does that work what the intelligence agencies i mean how do you coppery it on some matters when there is general mistrust and hostility i mean how do you know you're not being caught think that's a great question and i love that question. yeah well i love the question because it gets back to the heart of what we are what i hope we are and what we strive to be and even on our on the days we don't we don't reach this ethics i would call it of intelligence our basic motto our basic if you will standard is we have a duty to warn we have a duty to warn anybody anywhere in the world if they might their lives might be threatened by terrorist activity and of course in my time at cia working in
11:09 am
counterterrorism i personally instructed my officers to analyze and then provide the russian government with information that i believe prevented attacks on russian citizens during my time so i consider that a high one of our best days any time we help one another prevent attacks where people might be killed obviously and so that's that's a great story and as we've done it before this is just fortunately on this occasion there's a little bit of recognition that it happened and i think that's a good thing so do you think the recent pentagon military doctrine shift from the war on terror to great power while great with china and russia given higher priority now means that the cia's anti terror effort will fall to her. i don't think so sophia because terrorism is not going away we fact i'm a little worried right now because every time there's been a relative lull in activity such as we've seen since
11:10 am
a little bit of reduction of conflict in syria recently there's been a rebound and then the terrorists every merged in a new form so i'm not in any way believer in the idea that we were past this threat of terrorism i think at the same time the great power rivalry doesn't necessarily imply that we're enemies again or that we're back to a cold war i think in a way whether you're that you apply this idea of rivalry to china or russia it's a recognition that both countries should be taken seriously and that their interests are sometimes a threat to the united states but i would describe it more as competition than adversarial. i've heard former cia officials lament the fact that the agency has fewer resources now than sure in the cold war but does new technology like the n.s.a. surveillance mean that fewer people are needed at the agency anyway. i generally am
11:11 am
not a person that believes that intelligence resources are insufficient i think we have plenty of resources and we have to be smarter in how we go about things as you as you indicated technology helps leverage we can leverage technology as afore we call a force multiplier that makes us stronger there are other ways to do it too i don't think numbers is often the way to attack the problem i think we need smart people we need people who have the authorities they need the resources they need to do their jobs but i don't think the numbers indicate whether we have enough coverage in other words i believe or the u.s. intelligence community we have some we have sixteen different intelligence and it is within the what we call our intelligence community we have plenty of capability i think where we need to make more efforts is in how we decide what we do and then being more efficient in going about our missions so will the agency have less need for gathering old fashioned cold war style human intelligence like i don't know
11:12 am
talking to someone or infiltrating a guerrilla camp controls like hacking is dropping on phone conversations intercepting e-mails spying would. replace the human intelligence component. well you're talking to an old school person so i don't feel i need to reform my thinking at this point my life so i'd have to answer you by saying there's always room there's been room for of thousands of years for old spice old fashioned espionage spies go back to biblical times and you know as long as there are humans on the earth there's a need to know what our if you will competitors and adversaries are thinking and human spies will never be replaced by cyber or hacking or any other killer drones or any other technology in fact in the one nine hundred ninety s. in my view are the u.s. intelligence can community became too enamored with what i call the national park nickel means whether that was satellites or other things to replace human intelligence we thought the world changed after the collapse of the soviet union
11:13 am
and it had we're still living in the same world i was born in the one nine hundred fifty four so i believe to answer your question we're always going to need understanding of adversaries and even some of our friends plans and intentions because by having that knowledge will make better decisions and also if you like more technology progresses we're typewriters and old special letters are the safest thing out there still anyway as well thank you so much as it is and to your i thank you so much for this interview this wonderful insight always show you all the best of luck or talk until ralph larsen two decades cia veteran former moscow station chief about the cia's relationship with the trumpet ministration an israel and today scout a quilt that said for the senate see you next. finally
11:14 am
the non-static ended up now hundreds of billions of dollars on the planet. lining if you knew you would it be that easy to find and ten that out in me. is said thank you plus the city people are. getting. old but i thought it might have been my little bit of a wonderful enough that i little bit that i accept that i don't have money coming over as much of the way but i'm not about to get it but it. is this
11:15 am
london life. some mornings of. the sea. going to be no problem. in a world of big partisan group. 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 smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now for watching closely watching the
11:16 am
hawks. significance. of the sucking up of the basics. in the. civil liberties the civil suit we're talking to the. note of them. i'm going to let. me get you to tell you don't feel. that a lot of what i'm about to talk about i skid but i'm about the same as art but i was up the money into the magazine about when it comes to the long oh i love my son comment. just a single piece and i'll say oh my god so this is a long time ago you believe all that much of you made by. other good people moved up on the gulf coast on the go.

11:19 am
a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder in the car and it's meaningless in the death penalty just because they 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 is terrifying the is just know it hasn't and that we're even many victims' families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the capital here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace it's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way. street.
11:20 am
actually i had lunch lost a young girl who escaped through slave women by ice his claims then she came face to face with their captor in germany where she fled for safety we speak to. my boss called the police i told them i'd never imagined possible for an item fighter to be in germany however the police were unable to trace his name. a political analyst says stripped of his security clearance he says it was for questioning payments to an f.b.i. informant who spied on the drug camp. to shake or not to shake a muslim couple of switzerland's denied citizenship refusing to shake hands with members of the opposite sex.
11:21 am
by their very good afternoon just past one pm here in moscow now this is out international live from h.q. first on this special story we've got lined up for you but a girl from iraq she is it the religious minority who says she still fears in she didn't fear for a life basically of her escaping her islamic state captor she got over to some safety she thought in germany but she claims she then ran into him literally face to face we spoke to us work who told us about her ordeal. we were standing seven girls captured by fighters in taken to syria the worst time in my life was the moment when i was all separated me from my family they took us away from our mothers fathers brothers they even of adopted eight year old girls they tortured us raped test sold us into slavery who were looking for gasland anything sharp knife scissors when we couldn't find anything to cure selves with we were trying to escape but they handcuffed our hands and lax covered our heads and raped us they
11:22 am
turned us into human shields when they went anywhere they took us with them so that the strikes didn't kill them. a large number of easy women have been slaves by i still and sexually abused as many still in captivity to. have family medical. care that. trauma. would that provide an invaluable tool that i. passed on that and i doubt that you want it bad. you know now is not. the love i will have. any our homework done a film our. shrek
11:23 am
is now nineteen years old when she was captured by ice so four years ago she was sold as a sex slave to one of the fighters after being abused for three months she managed to escape and then fled to germany that's the story picks up again but while she was there she was horrified by two separate encounters with the very same man who would slave. germany was willing to take in one thousand women who had excused from i went there to forget what i'd been through i saw a boo as i was going home after school i couldn't believe my torture could have found out where i lived the next time i saw him was two years later a car pulled up beside me and asked me if i was and i said i didn't know he were a schlock how is it possible that my rapist is living here and has the same rights as me my boss called the police and told them what he looked like and they scratched his face and it looked the same i told them there had been no other witnesses i told them i'd never imagined possible for an fighter to be in germany
11:24 am
however the police were unable to trace his name. prosecutors claimed the information provided by isn't enough to identify them in the meantime as you can see she's now gone back home to iraq being i told my dad that the person who raped me was in germany that i didn't want to leave there no matter what my dignity is more important than being in germany i put my life in danger to escape from i still retain my dignity and he wanted me to stay in germany knowing that the one who was responsible for my misery is free in that country all i wanted was to be somewhere safe but after meeting him i was afraid the whole time that he heard me again so i couldn't stay there anymore. we contacted several german government agencies and the police on friday to us what action they take in if any way yet but when we do of course we'll let you know to further update this story. as yet another claim that russia is out to meddle in the upcoming midterm elections in the states this time it's in the atlantic magazine pointing the finger at its article even mentions
11:25 am
this very channel t.v. is one of the methods to try to swing the vote little quarter reports the russians are probably at it again according to an article in the atlantic magazine and probably is good enough especially when the unity of the stars and stripes is apparently under threat by big bad russia the russian government has one overriding objective with regard to the united states to weaken america so that it loses its will and ability to counter russian objectives and to accomplish this goal the article says russia has a devious multi-pronged plan. first as allegedly helping people who undermine the democratic party and inviting them as guests on r t the walk away campaign reportedly an organic cum pain of lifelong democrats leaving the party has been amplified by russian social media accounts and featured on the russian propaganda outlet r t walk away founder brandon stracke did give an interview for r
11:26 am
t in which he expressed his disillusion with the democratic party's identity politics and why his movements getting popularity among americans i myself was a lifelong liberal democratic voter i would say kind of a democrat by default because i'm a gay man and i think that the expectation for a lot of minority groups is that we are supposed to vote democrat and that we are supposed to be liberal so it's not identity politics hurting the party it's walkaway founder's appearance on our t.v. fueling a russian plot but if that's the case then there must be more russian influencers in america's midst because fox news had him on for a similar interview discussing. the very same walkaway movement and with the attention mainstream newspapers have given his campaign they may be doing an even better job at spreading his message but the buck doesn't stop there. the article says moscow is ready to give its money to russian friendly americans
11:27 am
russian businessmen will likely attempt to fund think tanks working on u.s. russia relations to push a narrative favoring cooperation with russia and opposition to sanctions cooperation with russia oh the horror regardless the article doesn't actually provide any evidence as to who or when some russian businessman will begin giving away free money but it's ok for western businessmen and nato to throw money at anti russian think tanks the articles author evelyn farkas is a senior fellow at one called the atlanta council and it's received millions of dollars from a long list of corporations and governments internationally who are apparently also very concerned about potential russian election hacking. while there is no way that it is that russia has done so to date at minimum it will likely use its ability to access voter registration databases and election related sites to undermine america's confidence in its own electoral integrity so no
11:28 am
evidence the kremlin has done it as the article says but the atlantic is calling on all patriotic americans to protect democracy and the tune of its song continues to sound oh too familiar we know that russia today is regarded as a grave threat to our nation to our freedom the peace of the world you see the reason why we are spending billions of dollars in defense production why your family is paying the highest taxes in our history. meantime some more outlandish attempts to showcase alleged russian influence of come with a bit of a cost for a democratic stuff for his love of this whole want of helping to smuggle a controversial piece of us into colorado state capital.
11:29 am
muslim couples been refused swiss citizenship and all because of a handshake or not as the case may be they did not shake hands with people of the opposite sex religious practice does not fall outside the law the constitution and equality between men and women prevailed over bigotry the couple were said to have shown a lack of respect towards gender equality laws and failed to prove their readiness to integrate in society therefore they have been given thirty days to appeal the decision similar than the sudden it happened back in twenty sixteen similar case
11:30 am
this time over in sweden let me tell you that was when a twenty four year old muslim woman refused to shake a male interviewers and when she got to go for a job interview the meeting and in fact was brutally terminated when that didn't happen however the lady's name for. one thousands in compensation when sweden's labor court ruled that amounted to discrimination the instant split social media two i've warned about this for years they immigrate into our countries and refuse to integrate and then use our laws against us to impose their religious laws they shouldn't come to a country and expect everything there to change according to what they want or don't want to do if you come to a country you should respect their culture it isn't racist it's common sense. well this isn't a law this is just a customary procedure she's not obliged to follow a custom that's against her and we just believe you don't have an argument.
