    Oh my, poor baby! Such an inconvenience for her to travel to testify in a tribunal trial. Doesn't she get that this trial is about the thousands of people who have been inconvenienced by their forced slave work in diamond mines? What about the inconvenience for those who have had their lives cut short by the repressive regime the trial is for? Inconvenience?! Jeeze doesn't this lady get it? How sad it is for her to HAVE to testify. I have absolutely no respect for this woman or her opinions.

    Well, I guess she was busy throwing both hissy fits and cell phones to know about "blood diamonds" or Charles Taylor reign of terror. The way she said that this whole thing is a huge inconvience was both insulting and chilling. I agree with Anderson on her "moronic" and "offensive" and what a huge "fool" she truly is. Thanks Anderson!

    To testify against a war criminal who has killed millions "is an inconvenience to me".... "I've never heard of 'blood diamonds' before"... "I've never heard of the country Liberia before".

    She's a bigger fool than we all thought. It's amazing who pays her to model anything, and who appreciates the fashion she promotes.

    From this morning up to this broadcast, I listened to Ms. Campbell testified about her gift of blood diamonds from Charles Taylor. I am a Liberian and a victim of Taylor regime. Ms. Campbell testimony was a shame to herself and a complete disregard for the lives, deaths and amputation of the thousands. It all appears that she was lying under oath. Ms. Campbell knows more than what she was telling. Taylor was fond of lavishing gifts on women especially those he wanted to flirt with. Naomi whether you say the truth or not, God sees your heart. And all those mourning in their earlier graves or surviving with their scars will despice you for not speaking the truth. I am not a Sierra Leonean but know for fact that you are lying. You have nothing to hide; the truth shall triumph. Live with your gulity. Don't forget your own charge of perjury.

    I think Naomi Campbell's comment about not wanting to be there was made more out of fear for herself and her family rather than any inconvience. Listen to what she said right after the comment about not wanting to be there. It is all about context as so many news agency learned from the USDA lady.
