Tim Hetherington on AC360: Charles Taylor, Naomi Campbell, and blood diamonds

Tim Hetherington appeared on AC360 last night to discuss the Charles Taylor war-crimes trial currently underway at The Hague. Sadly, this would be receiving almost zero coverage Stateside if not for the fact that a supermodel was forced to testify today... Anyway, at least Tim was able to talk about some of the important issues:

Thanks for posting Tim's clip from AC360 last night Cyn. Tim is very knowledgeable about Liberia, I've learned a lot from reading his book "Long Story Bit by Bit: Liberia Retold" and watching the film he helped shoot "Liberia: An Uncivil War". I highly recommend both of those works from Tim. For those of you with a Netflix account they have his film.

Thanks for posting this Cyn. I rarely watch CNN these days but when Sharon told me about it, I was kicking myself for missing it. These are the kinds of segments one wishes CNN would stick to.
