3:01 am
sporting history a former police chief was found not guilty of the deaths of $95.00 football. donald trump has announced peace talks have resumed with the afghan taliban the news came as the u.s. president made a surprise visit to afghanistan's background airbase where he met president ashraf ghani and u.s. soldiers stationed in september declared top of the taliban dead after a deal was reached in principle to pull u.s. troops in afghanistan. the taliban wants to make a deal we'll see if they want to make a deal is going to be a real deal but we'll see but they want to make a deal and then they want to make you feel his you're doing a great job that's the only news that i want to make of you so i want to thank you and i want to thank the afghan soldiers. and jordan joins us live now from washington d.c. ross so this is president trump's 1st trip to afghanistan how significant is it and
3:02 am
what more they have to say them well donald trump also says that the talks have been ongoing really for about 6 months but let's not forget there was that very public break in early september after the taliban carried out a bombing in which a u.s. soldier was killed the president suspended talks and also suspended plans for what he said was going to be a visit to camp david by taliban leaders in hopes of announcing a real progress in those peace negotiations but even though that break happened diplomats have been working very quietly to try to move the process along and of course we saw just recently the prisoner swap the taliban gave up 2 western hostages and 10 afghan soldiers in exchange for getting back 3 of their senior leaders who had been an afghan slash u.s. custody for several years that is being considered
3:03 am
a step in the right direction but what we have not heard is anyone suggesting that the taliban is ready to demilitarize to lay down its weapons in order to be in an integrated into the afghan body politic and roses traumas visit a way of perhaps dealing with political problems he has back home and also with the pentagon leadership. well this certainly could be read that way the president has been locked in a very public dispute with pentagon leadership because he has been engaged or some would argue interfering in the military justice system in the case of a member of navy seal team 6 this person had been accused of war crimes in the fight against eisel including in shooting and killing someone and posing for a photo with that person's corpse but the president had said that this person
3:04 am
didn't do anything wrong and should be able to retain both his rank and his membership in seal team 6 this is something which the pentagon leadership finds alarming and so if you have a photo op as it were of the president with some 1500 u.s. forces serving in a war zone it might persuade those who had been on the fence here in the united states that perhaps the president did the right thing again not directly connecting it to the situation involving to the seal team member but certainly smoothing over some of the controversy arose in jordan the in washington d.c. ross thank you well as a republican strategist and political analyst she believes the taliban see the trump presidency as a chance to strike a deal with the u.s. . i think the taliban understands that this president is a very unconventional president and that things in washington are not just you audit but also be written who on the forms of us decide you're able to be written
3:05 am
almost overnight and that's the challenge i think expect your i don't think that they've lost confidence that they can get somewhere and present china franky this that represent the bhowmick gretly this this this announcement by the president of reopening he stopped a moment an opportunity and i think that their efforts there are people who are part of the republican of south class here in washington and they're pretty angry because they were pretty angry when it was announced the president when it's you break the taliban over again even so there are people you're we're going to be critical of the president or what is the total sort of seasons as a window of entry and there also were not great of those 3 rules that our president is let's just put anything out there and see what sticks i think it almost sort of sounds from the fact that the president big genuinely interested in our military operations since before he even launches me and throughout his campaign he took
3:06 am
office we see but he doesn't appear to want to understand how certain things are really done and he said just want to criticize the previous administration says that on the street he was able to give you the doug so we get to a guy like me who the business deal maker and let me try to get something done i think that's exactly what he's operating with right now is a sense that people who lost him because he comes from another sector and could perhaps bring that expertise to deal making saddam's government has approved a law to dismantle the regime of former president omar al bashir the country's prime minister says the decision is not an ounce of the venues but anger preserving the dignity of a sudanese people and always posture of a joint meeting of saddam in southern council on cabinet. was removed from office in april after months of anti-government protests on tuesday was he morgan has the latest now. there's the creech basically embodies the demands of the sydney's people sense december last year when they took to the streets
3:07 am
demanding a change in government demanding that former president i wouldn't be here and has parts each be removed from power now that is something that we have seen repeatedly over the past few months specifically on the 21st of october when people took to the streets even after a transitional government was long and people saying that members of his following are awesome and were now asked for this decree members of the former ruling party cannot stand in a political position for the next 10 years and all assets that were on by the from really party will be seized by the government so this is quite significant and to a certain degree it does fulfill the demand of the people who have been protesting for the past few months demanding a change in government demanding new figures to take the place of those who have been running for the past 30 years prime minister issued a statement or via twitter saying that this is not an act of the french have this is something that is in the flex the will of the people who have been out on the
3:08 am
streets for months but they're also very cautious about was fond of those who have been loyal to the former ruling party for the past 30 years people are quite worried the government specifically is quite worried about the reaction of those who are loyal to the only party let's not forget that they have been in power for the boss that he is sort of you have with the around in every single governmental institution including military institution so we are concerned that there will be a backlash. iraqi security forces have opened fire on the crowds in a southern city a sign to government protests worsen at least 33 people are reported dead after the protest in the arena and another 11 deaths in the jeff well the army earlier dispatched commandos to the provinces with instructions to restore order on wednesday the rainy and consulate in the jeff was set on fire by john june reports now from the capital baghdad. in iraq a dramatic escalation hundreds of anti-government protesters storming the compound
