Hero Treks

Ben Wedeman, Nic Robertson CNN. Richard Engel, NBC. Fearless journalists in the eye of global hurricanes. Cairo, Tripoli, Baghdad, Kabul. Hats off to you and your crews. Glitzy network talking heads come and go. You are always there taking real risks to report events as they happen. Changing the course of history in many cases. Robert Gates. Finally someone hoists the elephant out of the living room. Why do we keep sending our brave soldiers into vast countries for decades with no reason nor exit strategy? Only 1% carry the burden. While the rest of us sit at home watching silly people behaving badly in TinselTowns.
