A stable Iraqi government could be one of the most important tools when it comes to fighting ISIS. That's why so many people are pinning their hopes on the country's new Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi succeeding. As he prepares for his meeting with President Obama, al-Abadi sat down with Christiane Amanpour for his first international interview.
Newly obtained video captured the reactions of two men who witnessed the shooting of Michael Brown. One of them screams, "He had is f****n hands up," and motioned with his own arms. AC360 spoke to both men and they say Darren Wilson was not the only officer on the scene, there were two others. They even say that a second officer drew his weapon but did not pull the trigger. Randi Kaye spoke to one of those witnesses and breaks down the video.
Does this video change the case? Anderson discussed this with legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin, along with Neil Bruntrager, who is General Counsel for the St. Louis Police Officers Association.
Bruce Levenson is the majority owner of the Atlanta Hawks and he is selling the team after racially charged e-mails came to light. He was writing about why the team was not attracting more affluent white season ticket holders. In one e-mail he wrote:
"My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a signficant season ticket base." He added, "I never felt uncomfortable, but I think southern whites simply were not comfortable being in an arena or at a bar where they were in the minority."
Levenson had been one of the most vocal critics of Donald Sterling earlier this year. Unlike Sterling, Levenson is selling his team without a fight. But NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar told Anderson that he does not believe that Levenson was expressing hatred.
New York Times Op-Ed Columnist Charles Blow says he does not believe Levenson should get "a business waiver for bias." He spoke to Anderson in a conversation with Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin.
CNN finds dozens of employees from Disney as well as Universal Studios and SeaWorld have been arrested in connection with alleged child-sex crimes since 2006. None of the cases involved children or teens visiting the parks.

Jason Buzi has been hiding his money and people across California have been finding it. You might not know his name, but you may have heard about his Twitter feed @hiddencash. Buzi has been hiding envelopes of cash and then posting clues so people could find it. He tells Anderson why he is doing this and which cities he picked for his next wave of gifts.
NBA legend Magic Johnson did not mean to land at the center of the Donald Sterling scandal. He posed for a photo with Sterling's friend V. Stiviano. She then recorded Sterling's rant where he demanded that she top taking pictures with African-Americans, including Magic Johnson.
The situation only heated up during Donald Sterling's interview with Anderson Cooper. Sterling launched attack after attack aimed at Magic Johnson. The disgraced Clippers owner called him out for his HIV status, questioned his position as a role model and even asked "what does he do for the black people?"
In an exclusive interview, Magic Johnson responds to Sterling's comments and discusses the scandal with Anderson Cooper.
Magic Johnson spoke candidly with Anderson about his decision to announce that he had HIV 22 years ago. Magic also discussed his work helping others with HIV and AIDS. Anderson also asked about Magic's business that brought thousands of jobs to urban areas.
Magic responds after Anderson plays a portion of the Sterling interview where he says, "Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people, and some of the African-Americans - maybe I'll get in trouble again - they don't want to help anybody,"
The NBA is moving ahead with its process for removing Donald Sterling as the owner of the L.A. Clippers. Magic Johnson spoke to Anderson about the future of the team, and his possible role as a future NBA owner.
After Donald Sterling's interview aired on AC360, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver released a statement apologizing to Magic Johnson on behalf of the league for being "dragged into this situation." Magic Johnson spoke to Anderson about the league's handing of the scandal. He also discussed the impact the scandal is having on the playoffs that are going on right now.
President Obama called for an investigation into a Phoenix VA hospital after AC360 exposed a former VA doctor's claim of at least 40 deaths of U.S. Military veterans last week. Three members of Arizona's congressional delegation want the hospital's director fired. Senior Investigative Reporter Drew Griffin tracked her down. The initial response was not-so-welcoming.
A VA Hospital looked like a model of efficiency on paper, but as many as 40 veterans died while waiting for medical care there. Senior Investigative Reporter Drew Griffin found a doctor who says the hospital hid the deadly secret by keeping two sets of waiting lists. It is the most shocking example yet in AC360's ongoing investigation of U.S. Military veterans dying while waiting for care at VA hospitals.

Ships and aircraft are working to track down the debris spotted by a French satellite. They are hoping to figure out whether the 122 small floating objects are our first glimpse of Flight 370. Anderson spoke with Captain Allison Norris of the HMAS Success, Australia’s lead search vessel. She explained why radar is not their most effective tool in this search.
Since Flight 370 disappeared there has been plenty of talk about the plane's ACARS system. That's one of the two communications systems that stopped broadcasting before the plane lost contact. To the untrained eye, ACARS may look like a a bunch of computers and wires. But how hard is it to turn off? Anderson got a closer look with Jim Sciutto and former NTSB member and aircraft mechanic John Goglia.
