    Hello, Anderson! I wish you, Peter Bergen, Sanjay Gupta, Michael Ware, & the rest of your crew a very safe & productive trip in Afghanistan. Please don't be afraid to ask the tough questions there while you still can, & may you all return safe & sound. Be sure to tell our troops that we still support them. May you all be safe.

    AC–I just want to thank you for going to Afghanistan. My baby bro is on the ground in an outpost somewhere in the Southern Helmand province and I feel like very few people have any clue what these brave, selfless soldiers and their families are sacrificing. Thank you for taking the risk to your own life to report this story!

    Grateful in Minnesota

    I'm looking forward to the coverage from Afghanistan. It's an important story. Our elected officials and military will have many policy decisions to make about Afghanistan in coming years.

    We can always count on you to jump right in a situation and bring us the coverage and "honest" reporting even if you put yourself at risk.
    Thank you and do stay safe. You're loved!

    I wish a safe and enlightening week in Afghanistan for Anderson and AC360 crew.

    Let's hope Anderson's tweeting doesn't get in the way of him paying attention to what's happening there! That can be dangerous! But I do hope we hear a lot from him about what he's doing and the situation over there.
