NEW YORK Jan 29, 2006 — ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff and a cameraman were seriously injured Sunday in an explosion while reporting from Iraq, the network said Sunday.
Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt were hit by an improvised explosive device near Taji, Iraq, and were in serious condition at a U.S. military hospital, ABC News President David Westin said.
Personal comment: What is it going to take? How many people– Iraqies and Americans– are going to have their lives altered and in some cases, destroyed altogether, before the American people wake up to the actions of this misAdministration?
What is the problem? Is it a lack of empathy? Is it a lack of imagination? Are we simply so blase and numb that we’ve forgotten that, generally for everyone, just being alive and functioning is a gift?
