Anderson Cooper Describes "Stupid Death" in Haiti - Video 1/15/10

Here is video of CNN's Anderson Cooper talking to Larry King tonight about what is being done with the dead in Haiti. Cooper describes the mass graves that are being used to bury the thousands who have died.

Cooper became emotional in describing what is taking place in Haiti as "Stupid Death." King asked him what he meant, and Cooper said he meant death that did not need to happen - the little girl who could be saved if there was a doctor to amputate her leg; someone who could survive if they had antibiotics. But too often, that does not exist in Haiti - "Stupid Death."

In the video below, Cooper describes a series of mass graves outside the city of Port-Au-Prince where the dead are being buried:

Larry King has the most probing questions: "Stupid Because..."

I noticed that Cooper suggested that the government was doing the best they could. One wonders if that is what he thought about the Bush Administration or if he was one of the ones pushing the idea that Bush wanted these people to die (during the Katrina mess). I won't pile on here because Anderson obviously cares about what's going on but I fear the time will come when the only story reported is how quickly Obama got troops on the ground in Haiti

The main problem with the relief effort in Haiti is logistical. Reports say Port au Prince has one barely passible road in or out of the airport and an utterly destroyed sea port. They are indeed doing the best they can with such horrific limitations.

You bring up Bush's Katrina response, as if its remotely comparable. New Orleans had clear and open roads in every direction away from the flooded 9th ward and the Stadium where the thousands of survivors ended up. Yet major relief efforts didn't begin for 3 days.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but didn't George W. Bush say "heck of a job Brownie" to the head of FEMA during the biggest dropping of the ball in disater response in our lifetimes?

If you weren't such a partisan maybe you woundn't "wonder" what Anderson Cooper thought about Bush's response to Katrina, & maybe you wouldn't worry about the possiblity that Obama might be praised for the U.S. response to this disaster.

Being partisan at a time like this is childish at best, and downright heartless at its worst.
