First Lady Michelle Obama has returned from her five-day trip to a luxury Spanish resort. However, the controversy surrounding her overseas vacation with two of her friends, her younger daughter, Sasha, aides and Secret Service agents is far from over.
Critics said her lavish trip was tasteless in this time of economic turmoil. They point to Pres. Obama's push for Americans to make sacrifices and spend money more wisely. Some called Mrs. Obama a modern-day Marie Antoinette.
But keeping them honest, is the finger-pointing justified? Every first family takes vacations. Plus, plenty of first ladies have come under fire for how they spend money. We'll talk it all over with CNN Political Analyst Roland Martin and Eric Erickson, editor-in-chief of RedState.com.
We'll also give you the first-look at a documentary on the life and death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman. The former NFL safety was killed in Afghanistan by friendly fire in April 2004. But you'll remember that wasn't the story his family and the rest of the world heard at first. Far from it. Military officials initially made Tillman to be a hero. They said he was killed in a firefight with insurgents and he sacrificed his life to save his fellow Rangers. But what was really sacrificed the truth. His family demanded answers and wouldn't stop until they got them. Tonight in the 'Big 360° Interview' Anderson talks with Pat Tillman Sr. about what happened to his son. The truth is told in the new documentary "The Tillman Story", which paints a damning picture of top military brass.
