    This is a terrible situation: traffickers in the war, and people helpless in the midst of this war.

    What about the laborers who dug those tunnels? Doubt they were properly compensated. The violence in Mexico, so horrible. What can we do about it?

    Haven't stopped *thinking* about these horrible crimes in Juarez and how easy it is to forget the suffering and misery that's so close by while we go about Christmas shopping and eating out...May the Lord bring an end to this awful darkness.

    The progress in the war on drugs is particularly difficult to feel in a big city, where the traffickers are arrested and quickly replaced by their subordinates.

    Michael Ware's reporting is always compelling.

    This industry (the cartels) that generates profits of billions of dollars is strong and there is no interest in tackling it.

    I'm still wondering why Tiger needs to man up to anyone else other than his wife and confess his trangressions. Why does he need to apologise to anyone other than his wife. Americans need a life.

    Michael Ware's reports on the drug war are really interesting and so sad.

    Crazy that we don't have technology to find these tunnels.

    We have to stop them but I have seen the crazy things people will do for drugs/money.

    There has to be a way to stop them though...something.

    First, I must say that Tiger is only human and we all make mistakes, unfortunately for him, the world is watching over him scrutinizing his every mistake. Regardless of his "transgressions", he married Elin and loves her and at this moment in time has chose what is important, his wife and children. These women that have thrown theirselves on him, should be ashamed of theirselves instead of announcing on tv that they are basically lacking respect for theirselves. They all knew he was a married man and let's get real, who ever leaves their wife for a mistress. He has no respect for those women and they are just trashing their own image anouncing their personal business on tv. I pray for Tiger, Elin, and their children that they can get past this ordeal and that the world around us will stop focusing on their personal life and face the issues that are important and really worth talking about. Divorce rates are high because of infidelity and in the world of fame, there's a high price to pay, and unfortunately it happens all the time. We should all respect that he is taking action to try and make things right and leave him alone.

    Michael Ware is crazy. Very brave, but crazy too. 😉

    As sophisticated as that tunnel is it's much less inviting than say a typical average everyday morning newscast. How much is admirable about the drug trade? Not much.

    @mr cooper, how long did it take you go down the tunnel and crawl as far as you did?

    @Cynthia, NC, I thought that myself. It was just like the time Gary went down in the coal mines.

  20. Caroline, Los Angeles

    Yes, that makes sense that there is no technology that can find the tunnels. There are lots of pocekts in the earth underground that occur naturally and we can't find those very easily either.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:47 pm |
  21. Sherri, Somerset MA

    I can't believe a tunnel like that had a phone that worked! And air vents and a toilet with water. They really..worked hard on it. I don't think I would have wanted to go down there though. I would have been claustrophobic.

    Reminds me of the Tunnel scene in "El Norte."

    @ isabel: just think! we get to watch a 30 min rerun of tiger too in 15 mins! joy,joy,joy!

    nice tunnel anderson! ever think Mexico..../Drug Cartels....../tunnels v Afghanistan tunnels ='s Maybe why we haven't found Bin Laden. Quite sophisticated they are–

    I can't get enough of these pieces on the tunnel and Juarez. So well done, and such important info to get out. AC, Michael and team rocking it once again

    @Casey Jones,

    Do you think that people get so "excited" over stories like the one re. Tiger Woods because of all the reality t.v. shows on today?

    It was not like that when I was young(er).

    From when I started watching, that panel sure was fired up!

    AC, that looks dangerous. Unbeliveable what folks will conceive in the hope of making money.

    @Lisa A., Philadelphia, PA- 90% of the marijuana, heroin, meth, and cocaine come from Mexico. The cartels have set up shop in 252 of our cities at last tally. Philly is likely one of them.

    Ware kills me. Adrenalin junkie. Does a good job. I enjoy his reports.

    This (drug story) is a really great story. Very newsworthy (ahem) and educational. (And, Anderson's shoes are quite stylish, aren't they?)

    The extensive coverage and analysis of Tiger's adventures in the 'woods' is unfair and more damaging than helpful. Tiger made a human mistake but it takes two to tango and I would like to see a discussion on why women continue to break ranks and steal other women's partners.

  31. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    Casey,
    Yup! it is..... related with drugs. of course they were hiding some where in side tunnel.

    Haven't stopped thing about Michael Ware's visit to the last crime scene on yesterday's show where two little girls were murdered ~ It's so desperately sad...

  33. Adelaide

    Anderson, I applaud your courage. I cant watch you on this creepy elevator.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:44 pm |
  34. anjasarushka

    Wow, there is an elevator too? Do they believe in God? What a contradiction to pray and keep a sculpture, and transfer the drug …

    December 11, 2009 at 10:44 pm |
  35. Arvind Gowda

    hydraulic floor... can we just legalize and regulate marijuana use already? Obviously this drug war is futile because the demand is there. One day we will look back on the drug war era and shake our heads we do when we think about prohibition.

    I’m still amazed watching the tour of this tunnel. Makes me claustrophobic just watching it!

    December 11, 2009 at 10:44 pm |

    @ Anderson I still can't believe you went down in that creepy drug tunnel.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:44 pm |
  38. Brad

    Wow that tunnel reallys sophisticated. Look a starbucks in the background.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:43 pm |
  39. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    Amazing, 90 feet down and the utilities still work! I can't even get my cable to work correctly on a regular basis.

    Palin and Gore...in the same sentence?! They are not in the same league.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:43 pm |
  41. Emily

    that tunnel is something! a phone system?! toilet, elevator, air vent...and all 90 feet deep and about 6 feet high... geez! really something.

    December 11, 2009 at 10:42 pm |
  42. Jim

    The tunnel reminds me of when I worked in Homestake Gold Mine in South Dakota but I was 8000 feet below the earth

    December 11, 2009 at 10:42 pm |
  43. Isabel Siaba (Brazil)

    The tunnel length is awesome! Besides the sophistication in the details!

    Your work on the drug issues from south of the border is excellent and appreciated.
    The exclusive on that amazing tunnel is impressive.

    I can only hope someone from the Legislature & White House is monitoring your show so they will take much needed action against the drug war that is killing so many in Mexico and spilling into the US.

    That was a serious tunnel!

    Wow! that is so horrible I have seen inside tunnel, I don't want live inside tunnel...... too scary for see that! YIKES!

    This should be a private affair (npi) between the members of Tigers family. The tabloidisation of society, fueling the public's mob mentality inclinations, are the media's ability to turn the immaterial into cash. Something from nothing and we are consuming it like a Black Friday big box store frenzy.

    Plenty of drugs and drug dealers here in Philly ... interesting to see where some of it is coming from. So sad. In hard economic times it's amazing people still have money to buy this mess. I guess it's the whole "escape" aspect. Shame.

    Is 60 pounds a lot of grass? Hmm. Where I live (in CA) is pretty close to Calexico. Now I'm really connecting the dots and wondering about how much of our crime (in a neighboring community) is related to drug smuggling?

    December 11, 2009 at 10:41 pm |
  50. Caroline, Los Angeles

    Wow! A hydralic floor to hide the tunnel! It's like a James Bond movie.
