    It is doubtful that "Sara," the woman whom Anderson Cooper interviewed in the segment "Iranian Protester Speaks Out," is Iranian. Her accent and intonation in English are not those of a native speaker of Persian. They are those of a native speaker of Chinese.

    In the year 2000, reflecting on this notion, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright stated:
    "In 1953 the United States played a significant role in orchestrating the overthrow of Iran's popular Prime Minister, Mohammed Mossadegh. The Eisenhower Administration believed its actions were justified for strategic reasons; but the coup was clearly a setback for Iran's political development. And it is easy to see now why many Iranians continue to resent this intervention by America in their internal affairs."[11]

    Hi, i'm from Honduras and i was watching "Sara" speaking about the protests in Iran, i was shocked at the brutality of the videos and troubled to know the goverment is not allowing those videos and comment to circulate the news. It's so hypocritical of them to do that after what they said about Mubarak in Egypt and when all the green movement wants is an honest and better goverment. I'm moved by the courage of Sara for speaking out in public while she exposed herself to punishment. Bravo for her and hopefully her friend and all of those who have been killed won't have die in vain.

    Seems the protesters were violent, unlike Egypt initally. Burning cars etc. The Gov has to crackdown. These movements seem to think they have no consequences. Also, Obama need to focus more on the USA the overseas. Seems he
    cares more about them then us.

    This is a bad report. I do not see ANY miltary in all the reports you have shown so far from Iran. I have been watching this report since you came on line with this report trying to comapre it with the situation in Egypt is just stiring up trouble media wise. All I see in Iran is a bucnh of thugs and that is all you showed in all your shots. I don't agree with what is happening in Iran and with its people BUT PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR MEDIA broadcasts to incite a situation that you are not willing to really show real pictures.

    Are you trying to make your audience sick? The crazy continually changing screen behind you adds noting to your show. In fact it made me leave the room. I am referring to the blue and black moving montage.
