Hot Links: Con artist's crazy cons
Posted By CNN: 11:18 AM ET
It's not so much how Reed-Hensen was able to slither around the country anonymously, but that she was able to snag acceptance letters from TWO premier Ivy League universities and maintain her status there. That alone says more about the warped selection process at these schools and the even crazier standards to remain there. Forget homeless to Harvard. It's now criminal crap to Columbia.

Frankly, when I see it then, I'll believe it. I trust most politicians as water in a fishnet. Most are still looking out for themselves and not many others.

Funny - as of my writing this comment, 18 people have responded to the sex and email debacle, and none for the Muslim extremists in Britain. But I guess that reveals the nature of average Americans, when idiotic shows like "American Idol" get more viewings than the news. And we wonder why the world calls us "dumb Americans"!

I am looking forward to the new Special Investigations Unit programming on CNN. "The War Within" is a hard topic to face; but what I have seen in the video segments online, this issue could also happen in the US. "Blowing up is cool" and the extremist dialogue are mixed with impressionable young Muslims to form, at least at the moment, a minority Muslim group. Why are so many people blind to what is happening to these young people? It is the new Hilter Youth.

I will be watching. Christiane Amanpour's reputation as a journalist is fair and thorough.

A behind the scenes look at "Anderson Cooper 360°" and the stories it covers, written by Anderson Cooper and the show's correspondents and producers.
