I was digging around for a light, funny clip to post tonight but I was stopped in my tracks when I came across an Nth Degree titled "Taking a Grand Wish to the Nth Degree". It is from June 25, 2004 - 3 years ago. Anderson is dressed in a bullet proof vest hosting the show from Baghdad. In the clip, he seems so optimistic about the upcoming handover of power to the new Iraqi government. Unfortunately, since the handover on June 30, 2004 there have been 2687 American troops that have died in Iraq (3546 in Iraq since the war has started and 406 in Afghanistan). Stats from antiwar.com.
Speaking of our troops, if you missed Anderson's interview with Joe Darby who was the one that turned in his fellow soldiers for abusing Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib, you can the repeat tonight on 60 Minutes.
CNN has been running ads wanting nominees for their CNN Hero Awards. I noticed during Friday night's AC360 the ticker was saying Anderson would be the hosting the award show in December. Here is a link to the CNN Heros page: http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2007/cnn.heroes/
