Four years ago, Bill Keith's booming solar business created much-needed jobs in the United States. His company attracted the attention of the Obama administration, and was once the star of his green jobs program. Now, a federal policy to prevent China from flooding the U.S. market with cheaper solar panels could kill his business. CNN's Drew Griffin reports.

Blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng tells Anderson Cooper about confinement, beatings and the feel of freedom. He’s speaking out for the first time since he escaped house arrest.
In his first in-depth TV interview since arriving in the U.S., Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng talks with Anderson Cooper about his new freedom and why he's worried about the fate of his family and friends he left behind.
His relatives' homes have been broken into and they've been beaten by authorities in Shandong Province in eastern China, said Chen.
"We can see their retribution against my family since my escape has continued and been intensified," he told Cooper.
Still, Chen, 40, said he has no regrets about what he's gone through.
He shared what it was like to enjoy freedom.
”I haven't been able to feel the nature for a long time," Chen said. "On that day I had some time to soak in the sun and feel the breeze. i just felt I hadn't been able to do that in so long. I have missed out for too long."
Chen, his wife and their two children arrived in the United States on Saturday. He will take a fellowship at New York University, where he will study law.
Back on April 22, Chen escaped in the dark of night from more than 18 months in lockdown at his house in Shandong. The daring plot played out like a Hollywood movie - a blind man sneaked past sleeping guards, scaled the wall around his house, injured his foot and hid in a pig sty.
David Gergen and Nick Kristof discuss what's at stake for the U.S. in dealing with the Chinese activist asking for help.
During Anderson Cooper's report about escaped activist Chen Guangcheng, China blocks the broadcast for the second time.
Viewers in China were blocked from seeing Anderson Cooper's report on Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese activist who escaped house arrest.
Washington (CNN) - The one major problem for the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden was the crash of one of their helicopters.
It was no ordinary military chopper. Numerous aviation experts say they see several telltale signs of stealth technology in photos of what was left after the SEAL team tried to destroy the craft.
Some think it was a secret aircraft.
"Had this particular helicopter not crashed, we still would have no idea of its existence," said Gareth Jennings, the aviation desk editor for Jane's Defence Weekly.
Jennings and other aviation experts say the helicopter may have been a heavily modified version of the UH-60 Black Hawk, a mainstay of the military's helicopter fleet.
But it may include stealth technology developed for the now-canceled RAH-66 Comanche helicopter. That aircraft was designed to be an armed reconnaissance craft capable of carrying only two people.
Two of the aircraft were built for test flights before the Army canceled the program in 2004, not because of performance but because it needed money to upgrade existing helicopters. At the time, Les Brownlee, then acting secretary of the Army, said, "We will retain relevant technologies developed in the Comanche program."
At the same 2004 briefing about the cancellation of the Comanche, then-Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Schoomaker said, "much of what we've gained out of Comanche we can push forward into the tech base for future joint rotorcraft kinds of capabilities as we look further out."FULL STORY

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintao to the White House in a formal arrival ceremony Wednesday morning.
The Chinese leader's limousine pulled up to the White House South Portico shortly after 9 a.m., where he was met with a military honor guard and review - part of the traditional pomp and circumstance reserved for visiting leaders of major powers.
Obama hailed Hu's visit as a chance to lay a foundation for the next 30 years of Sino-American relations.
"At a time when some doubt the benefits of cooperation between the United States and China, this visit is ... a chance to demonstrate a simple truth," Obama said. "We have an enormous stake in each other's success. In an interconnected world, in a global economy, nations - including our own - will be more prosperous and more secure when we work together."
Obama also alluded to the importance of human rights - a traditional point of contention in relations between Washington and Beijing.
