Tonight on 360°, who's lying? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the most powerful woman in Washington, or the head of the CIA? At issue, who knew what and when about terror interrogations. We're keeping them honest.

    I would be much more inclined to support a ridiculous stunt like this had it been done to support a cause or a charity.

    Anderson, please!! You say 'Don't do this at home' but then you show the video with soundtrack glorifying the waterfall stunt!!!!! Please don't!

    WOW, what an incredible clip of the guy and the waterfall!! The film was exceptionally well done.

    This young man is incredibly brave (if not completely crazy too)

    Good evening Anderson,

    I would be happy to see your picture on the post.

    Congratulations to your President Barack Obama for the honouree award from the University of Notre Dame. It is good to look at the values it honours (e.g compassion and kindness).

    the waterfall is absolutely stunning. one more of the naturally occurring things. man looks so small and insignificant next to nature.

    Fellow Kayaker here! This kid is nuts. Husband reads these kayak mags from around the world and he could have suffered from a broken neck. That's how most die.

    P.S. Don't forget the spray skirt!

    Hey Anderson

    Not in my life would I have the courage to do that kayak run. Not in a million years.

    May 15, 2009 at 10:51 pm |

    @ Randi Dennis Portland OR.

    I completely agree with you

    Wild, who left the water running?

    May 15, 2009 at 10:51 pm |
  37. Casey Jones, Palm Springs, CA

    OK, my jaw has dropped and I can't believe anyone would do this and I can't believe there's not some kind of a law against it.

    May 15, 2009 at 10:50 pm |
  38. Miss J

    Only a lunatic would attempt that?

    Then that must be Anderson's next feat! It was nice knowing ya Anderson. We love you!

    @ Kim U
    Condolences on the loss of your brother. He was brave to do the right thing. Telling the truth and the right thing should not be discouraged and your brother is a beacon of light to lead people to it.

    @ David Gergen-Agreed! I've grown weary of this cross between "The Blame Game" meets "The Drama Llama" anyway. Best to leave the inquiries out of the headlines until we have more definitive answers, otherwise, it's the same frenzy as the Swine Flu.

    Anderson...don't be grossed out by the Brits exiting their pubs. You've spent time in New Orleans...come on, closign time on Bourbon Street has to be worse than anything the Brits can produce!!

  42. Niwat, Chicago

    @David Gergen, fantastic opinion as always.The quarrel between the house speaker and CIA had gone a bit like finger-pointing.I don't think either of them lied on their position.There seemed to be misinformation between the capitol and the Bush Adm as Bush and his administration might have not relapsed the water-boarding as one of the interrogating techniques when the bill was introduced.

  43. Rachel

    That thing about not stiching, is really scary. Have a good weekend all.

  44. paul

    any more, i dont beleive any thing the republican party says or do, I beleive Nancy Pelosi's side of the story, how fast we forget,we the american people were lied to about the war, why wouldn't they lie about the torture .
    Let us face it.This is the game that's being played all alone by the Bush administration and the repuplican party, they are sending a message to Nancy Pelosi not to open up a can of warms .

    good mix of interesting stories tonight! nice to hear some international news!

    @ Emma: I know. Myanmar was the given to the country by the military (and oppressive ) junta. Their rule is not generally recognized and therefore the country should still be called Burma.

    AC I am very disappointed of you on your comment about London. You have understand that most people who hang out in London do not actually live.

    May 15, 2009 at 10:47 pm |
  48. Fay - California

    It's good to see 360 keeping viewers informed about Burma – it's not a story that you'll see on too many news programs.

    Nancy Pelosi called for a truth commission and it should happen – she wants all the facts on the table. The fact that Bush/Cheney authorized torture is the main issue that all Americans should be concerned about.

    @ Lynn

    I agree about seeing more of Fareed throughout the week. His knowledge and wisdome (not to mention his interviewing style) is outstanding.

    But then, we do have Anderson & 360 who also present excellent reports and interviews too.

    Maybe we could have both?!

    @ Anthonia i agree with you with the snitching comment.
    i used to have same problem a long time ago in school.
    I believe that snitching is necessary in some situations especially if the person is taking advantage of you
