Editor's Note: After Friday night's AC360°, we heard from many of you about the Americans faced with kidnapping charges. We also received many positive accolades for Candy Crowley, who was on the program with Anderson on Friday night. Don't miss her new role as anchor of State of the Union on Sundays at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. ET.

Anderson, most folks in third world country give their kids away for a better life. It is not that they don’t love them but, for a better life. I do understand why people do that in Haiti. Personally it was a tragedy but those Baptist missionaries see it was a chance to do something what was right in the eyes of God. I don't think it was kidnapping but some of the people of Haiti just went overboard with it. Why don’t they take the time and find the escape prisoners and put them away .I know what third world prison looks like I feel sorry that these Americans have to go there. Glad to have u back, Karl is doing a wonderful job. I wish u can go back and do some more broadcast.

Great show tonight, I miss Erica but Candy did a great job and I hope she will be on much more.

Regarding the American missionaries who are charged with kidnapping children, I think it's time you had a psychiatrist on the show to talk about the leader's mental state. She's either delusional and believes her own lies (doesn't she have that same constant phony smile that Scott Peterson always had?) or she's diabolical and was planning a scheme of making money "selling" the Haitian children under an adoption disguise or she's simply running away from her own troubles back home. Your reports said she has 3 children. How old are they and who's taking care of them? I'd like to hear what her family members say about her mental state. Good reporting of this story on your show. You're unraveling the lies and starting to get to the core of this bizarre woman and the web she's knitted around her.

    What a blessing that Anderson is back in Haiti! I could hardly tolerate the studio broadcasts–reworking the same few stories and much of it uninteresting. The studio routine seemed jaded after the dramatic weeks in Port au Prince. Thank God AC has returned! AC360 soars to the top when he reports on-location. Hopefully, now that he's back in the field we won't suffer through any more irritating "Shots".

    I don't believe in the good faith of those 10 American, There too many unclear statement in their case, Actually they hired a lawyer from Dominican Rep. to defend themselves after the Haitian one dropped the case, it's not sure if this new lawyer can defend them in Haiti. your reports show more unclear statement. it is very sad in the middle of this situation where American people are helping their fellow Haitian and then this happened. it could be hard for them

    What ever happened to Susie Krabacher's group of orphans that the government swept up and took somewhere? I have been watching cnn to find out if any news on this has been published. Also, the many orphan swept in an airplane to the US for a better life? Those are items of interest some of us are following. Right now, I remain in prayer for the American missionaries who have become slandered and publicized over our world when their intentions were to go and help. God help them since Haiti is not focused on the escaped criminals running all over the country have become a second or third priority.
