Researcher “very confident” piece of metal is from Amelia Earhart’s plane

One of the most enduring mysteries of American history – what happened to Amelia Earhart – may be that much closer to being solved.

An aircraft recovery group says new testing on a piece of metal found on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean has them feeling more and more confident that the evidence is indeed a part of Earhart's plane, an aircraft that mysteriously disappeared as she tried to circle the globe in 1937.

In this web exclusive, Anderson Cooper speaks to Ric Gillespie, the executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, and the author of “Finding Amelia: the True Story of the Earhart Disappearance.”

Web Exclusive: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on voting against measure to arm Syrian rebels

Both the House and Senate have voted to approve a measure to train and arm Syrian rebels. President Obama thanked lawmakers, saying the bipartisan support showed Americans were united in the fight against Islamic State militants. Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii is also an Iraq war vet and she voted against the measure. She told Anderson that her biggest problem is that "the mission is unclear."

Web Exclusive: Anderson Cooper's full interview with Israel's Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer

Authorities in Gaza say more than 1,300 people have been killed there since the war began. The United Nations estimates 70-80% of the dead were civilians. 56 Israelis have been killed, all but three were troops. That disparity drives a perception in parts of the world, that the war is, if not wrong outright, then at least it is being wrongly fought. In Israel, there is overwhelming public support, with approval between 80-90%. Ron Dermer is Israel's Ambassador to the United States.
