Anderson Cooper on TSR with Wolf Blitzer

Anderson talked to Wolf today, in The Situation Room. They lost connection, but were able to regain it and complete the interview ~

Anderson's post to the AC360 Blog ~

Cooper: 'This famine was preventable'

Perhaps you think you’ve seen it, heard it all before. Hunger in the Horn of Africa. Famine once again spreading in Somalia. It is an old headline, I suppose, it certainly has happened before, but that doesn’t lessen the horror of it: the sickening stench of a hospital room filled with dying children; the shock of seeing row after row of tiny, freshly dug graves.

... We will be broadcasting from here tonight, and inside Somalia tomorrow. I hope you tune in. I know some of it will be hard to watch, but turning away does nothing to alleviate their pain. So many here have already died unnecessary deaths, they’ve died on the side of the road, away from their homes, trying to get help. They’ve died in silence, and nothing remains to show that they ever existed at all. (click here to read Anderson's complete post)
