An exclusive interview with President Thein Sein about the rapid transformation of Myanmar – a revolution in progress.
In Haiti right now you notice how patient, considerate, gentle, even noble people are, all things considered. We've seen very little looting. Very little violence and anger from the people. But this week we did see gunfire and death, out near the airport, in connection with five bags of rice.
We want to warn you, this video is extremely graphic and very hard to look at, but very important to know about:
CNN has sent a crew to the Haitian government compound at the airport to ask about this incident and several other similar incidents reported by other media. If and when we get a response, we'll share that with you.
Christiane is in Haiti, where she's reporting on relief and rebuilding. She anchors AMANPOUR. live from Haiti every day on CNN at 2100 CET. Here are her updates from the ground:
Haiti’s ongoing relief efforts and the debate about torture and interrogation that Professor Philippe Sands and Chief speechwriter to former President G. W. Bush entertained were the most commented topics. Concern over Haitians and their welfare continued to be a priority among the majority and although most agreed the interview about interrogation methods was “fantastic”, they described it as a divisive topic that “needed to be addressed.”

Dawn Chandler Young While I agree with that we definitely need to clear up the law regarding torture and war. Terrorism is NOT a new term, it is the Oldest term in the history of human kind. We just arent used to being the terrorists. and Americans still dont understand what happened because they didnt elect Bush, and Bush and Cheney didnt comply with the law in any way shape or form, everything from the justice department filings to the yellow cake uranium, to the non compliance with congress when subpoenaed is conspiracy against the United states of America.
Melvin Hoe Fantastic interview with many great insights. Mark's reactions to this sensitive topic is quite entertaining A very divisive topic for sure, but Professor Sands made a very good point about the UK not using "enhanced interrogation" techniques while still being able to remain safe. There has to be another way out.
