Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 back in the NYC studio. The first hour covered politics, the capture of El Chappo, the release of the U.S. Navy sailors by Iran and a report by Miguel Marquez on the sale of Powerball tickets. Richard Quest joined Anderson to break down the Powerball payouts and questioned Anderson about what his first purchase would be if he won!
In the second hour there was more politics, another report by Miguel Marquez on Powerball ticket sales in NYC, more on El Chappo's capture and another report on Iran releasing the U.S. Navy sailors captured in Iranian territory yesterday. This report in the second hour was followed up by a panel that stated there are more questions that need to be answered; before we rush to judgement on how the situation was handled we need know why the U.S. boats were in Iranian territory to begin with given the sophistication of the U.S. Navy. (Wonder if David Gergen, Smerconish, Blitzer and Tapper were watching. Given their rhetoric last night perhaps they owe President Obama and Secretary Kerry an apology?)
