Tonight on Larry King Live!

Posted: 06:32 PM ET

Obama's Deadline

Tonight President Obama is set to receive the report on the Christmas Day terror attempt. How exactly did the U.S. miss all the warning signs surrounding Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab? What will actually change as a result of the near-disaster? And will heads roll at any of the responsible government agencies? We'll talk the politics of terror.

Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized

We'll get an update on how the radio talk show host is doing tonight. Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital last night after complaining about chest pain. How is he feeling? When will he back on the air?

Happy 2010!

Last but not least, we'll take you around the country as we say hello to 2010!

Which brings us to the question of the night:

What's your resolution for the new year?

Greetings Larry King, CNN Staff and fellow bloggers!

🙂 ~*~ H A P P Y N E W Y E A R ~*~ 🙂

Here's hoping you are not one of the people that is herded like cattle thru a Xray machine in America's airports this new Year!

And I hope if you help prevent some Muslim from carrying out his act of violence that Homeland Security doesn't publish your home address!

karl banks   December 31st, 2009 9:00 pm ET

Hey Larry,
can you please ask Dick Chaney was is he still trying to comment about the Obama administration when he was so dead wrong about Iraq having WMDS and they didn't? Other country's respect leaders, Obama far more then they did GW or him!

Dan Nelson Lafayette,IN   December 31st, 2009 9:58 pm ET

Since the bombing happened on Christmas day and they try to kidnap and kill Christians and Jews throughout the world should we not call this war on terror,the war on the anti-Christ?

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:02 pm ET

Facts on Yemen!

Yemen’s support for Iraq during the 1990–1991 Gulf War forced economic consequences as Saudi Arabia expelled almost 1 million Yemeni workers, and both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait significantly reduced economic aid to Yemen. The 1994 civil war further drained Yemen’s economy. As a consequence, for the past 10 years Yemen has relied heavily on aid from multilateral agencies to sustain its economy making it a very impoverished and vulnerable country.

According to statistics published by the Energy Information Administration, crude oil output averaged 4,133,000,000 barrels per day in 2005.

Yemen is a small oil producer and does not belong to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Unlike many regional oil producers, Yemen relies heavily on foreign oil companies that have production-sharing agreements with the government. Income from oil production constitutes 70 to 75 percent of government revenue and about 90 percent of exports.

I just want to tell you I love Candy Crowley!! Love Larry King too, but Candy, you are doing an awesome job and I love it when you are commentator!!!!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:11 pm ET

Good Evening Larry King, and Candy Crowley, CNN Staffers, fellow bloggers!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Candy, the White House Administration must STOP rewarding the CIA for utter failures in what is completely expected of them to do.

Former President Bush jr., rewarded the utter failure of the CIA to stop the 911 bombers despite their intel data, by giving them additional 10's of Billions of dollars.

It was in my opinion a huge mistake for President Obama to publically thank the CIA for doing their job.

President Obama needs to step up and chop off the heads of all of the CIA managers that dropped the ball, on purpose or not that led to placing American citizens at risk.

The UK already had the Nigerian Muslim butt-bomber on their No-Fly list, and was BANNED from entering their country. The CIA knew that already.

President Obama, do not reward the CIA for utter incompetence and failure like Bush jr. did!!!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:19 pm ET

Get real Ben Stein, if the CIA dropped the ball and placed hundreds in the airliner and hundreds in the metro-city of Detroit beneath that jetliner at risk, the CIA was not acting as a friend of America.

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:21 pm ET

Thanks @ A. Ahmad, it seems American troops and military are nothing but hired guns for Saudi Arabia. Feels like another attempt for a 3rd. Oil War.

Dianne   December 31st, 2009 10:22 pm ET

How manydays did Bush take off? While Americans were dying during and after Katrina Bush was traveling about and did not even comment or come to their aid. He had more time off than any president before him.

vicky   December 31st, 2009 10:24 pm ET

Who is blaming Obama?

A war criminal can’t aim his own gun (Dick Cheney)another criminal mislead his boss even his wife can’t stand him ( Karl Rove)

I am waiting for comedians to come back from their vacation they will give good answers for these criminals

HAPPY NEW YEAR CNN staff and Viewers

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:24 pm ET

@ A. Ahmad

Yes, you are correct. Yemen became so dangerous, the French Oil company Pulled out, I believe that was either last year or earlier this year.

thomas   December 31st, 2009 10:24 pm ET

FIVE deferrments for Dick Cheney...disgusting !!!!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Any country such as Iran that has purchased Chinese Silk Worm missiles and hyper hi-speed torpedo's could effectively shut-down supertanker access to and from Saudi Arabia. Expanding those launch sites to Yemen would likely be a size able threat to any supertanker traveling thru that narrow choke point. Again, is America nothing but a hired gun for Saudi Arabia, where America soldiers give up their lives and the American taxpayers pick up the tab?

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:28 pm ET

@ A. Smith

You were right. We are the guns for Saudis.... Good Deductions!

vicky   December 31st, 2009 10:29 pm ET

2010 same old republicans

whining and crying republicans

Scared of Rush Limbaugh and FOX republicans

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:30 pm ET

@ Dianne... good question!

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:36 pm ET

There is absolutely no privacy if your president. Giving away ice a kid.. so he was a nice guy. Did they clock him in the bathroom?

angela   December 31st, 2009 10:38 pm ET

has everyone made their resolution? mine is no more shopping for 2011, i kept the economy going in 2010. i am very nervous and looking to cram in some last minute online deals before midnight.

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:40 pm ET

Angela... lol When Rush was rushed to the Hospital... I was thinking... you are right... there is a God!!!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:43 pm ET

NYC should do what they do in New Orleans, Unleash the Street Sweepers for crowd control! You should see the homeless seniors scatter!

With all of those police in times square, did all of the drug dealers move to another street corner or are they smarter than the police and radioactive detectors etc. etc. ?

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:45 pm ET

I want to see Kathy Griffin lay a huge sloppy kiss on Anderson Cooper while the camera's zoom in to show the look in his face!

angela   December 31st, 2009 10:46 pm ET

And he will meet HIM too, and I fear the outcome will not be good!

angela   December 31st, 2009 10:48 pm ET

Good night all Happy New Year friends, I am off to QVC since AC-360 banned me, tisk tisk.

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:48 pm ET

A. Smith... whats that... you want the poor guy to pass out!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:50 pm ET

The NY Police have personal radiation meters!

Amazing that troops in Iraq do not have those. With constant threats to bomb Iran's vast nuclear centrifuges that contain hundreds of TON's of extremely toxic and radioactive Uranium Hexafloride gas you'd think the American troops in Iraq would all have personal radiation meters in case Israel or America bombs those Uranium enrichment sites and releases a radioactive cloud that covers much of Iran and parts of Iraq !!!

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:50 pm ET

Enjoy your new years eve Angela!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:51 pm ET

AC360 banned you angela? could you give us more info?

Nancy in Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Happy New Year, Candy and all! Thank you Candy...I think you're great!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:52 pm ET

I hope the CNN staff gives Kathy Griffin a creme pie to wallop Anderson Cooper in the face as a Happy New Year Surprise, the viewers would love it!!!

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Yikes the NYC Drag Queens! LOL

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Hey, not bad for a drag queen... I have seen much worse!

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:55 pm ET

The questions is... why is he around drag Queens? whats the interest?

Dodie   December 31st, 2009 10:56 pm ET

Anderson looks like he just got ........

A. Smith, Oregon   December 31st, 2009 10:57 pm ET

LOL, Anderson Cooper looks gun shy tonight standing next to Kathy Griffin.

Christopher   January 1st, 2010 12:23 am ET

Finally - a class guest-host - more Candy Crowley!

A. Smith, Oregon   January 1st, 2010 3:54 am ET

Larry King, since you are asking about deadlines for President Obama, what about the Israeli – American deadline for Iran to totally stop their Uranium enrichment program which expired today Jan. 1st. 2010?

Israel is very punctual and Iran doesn't appear to be doing anything other than expanding their Uranium enrichment capability's.

This could be the toughest test yet of current US Naval capability. Americas Naval warships would have to shadow and protect the massive Supertankers past the shallow and narrow Strait of Hormuz, shielding them from the Iranian torpedo's and silk worm missiles or fail with the sinking of a Oil Supertanker.

If a Oil Supertanker were sunk by the Iranian forces in that shallow and narrow channel, America would be flooded by international anger from nations that are totally dependent on those Supertankers entering and leaving daily. Even a 7 day shut-down of the Strait of Hormuz would place a great deal of stress upon Oil dependent country's around the world.

My moneys on the US Navy, if the US Navy is called upon for help or support, historically that is the strongest triad of the American forces.

Of course I would rather for Iran to work out the clear differences in the disputes.

R J   January 1st, 2010 8:35 am ET

The CIA never shares, they just scare the public with psyops, disinformation,and cover-ups…. and the media just reports any old lie to the public, like we won in iraq (not), al-queda is on the run (not), and killing a suspected terrorist through bombing is making us safer (not)….having paul bremmer on to present himself as some sort of security expert is a whopper also.
This man has caused so much loss of life in Iraq to Americans and Iraqis for such greedy reasoning that it is a crime that now surpasses the number killed on 9/11…………right-happy new year, here is your American opportunity-we need hired guns. Step right up , be the first on your block to have your kids come home in a box. We spend billions on HSD, only to see them take the money and run, but no, there’s no money for public hospitals or trains here.

wm from ca   January 1st, 2010 12:30 pm ET

Dodie..Shocked Jay Leno had Rush Limbaugh on his show a few mos ago..I turned it OFF...What was he thinking..must have been his STAFF ..BAD ADVICE !!

Ted   January 1st, 2010 2:21 pm ET

To all bloggers on this Earth,


Maria Copelli   January 1st, 2010 2:36 pm ET

All ,I wonder too ,how many of us did ,research on the hin1virus?Jane Bergermeister,did some digging and I would suggest we all try to find out what is really in these formulas?And how did the virus get out ?It is alwys good to find out the truth,where wnd when we can.

Maria Copelli   January 1st, 2010 2:38 pm ET

ALL again sorry ,i wanted to conclude by saying ,if anything I ahve learned is do not swallow every story that seems fit to print,instead keep on looking for what you feel is right and true,I hope this makes some sense.

Ted   January 1st, 2010 2:40 pm ET

I wish Rush Limbaugh all the best, (meaning the best for our country) and hope he will leave the hospital confortably carried out feet first!!

A. Smith, Oregon   January 1st, 2010 8:41 pm ET

The Creator is the being with the first and final say on absolutes.

Those that are created including the Christian figure they name as Jesus, listens and does what the Creator instructs and orders to be done. Even if the Christian 'Jesus' is a son of the Creator, it is a falsehood to spout that a child orders the Creator what to do.

To instruct people a Created child orders the Creator what to do is very wrong and misleading.

Dodie   January 1st, 2010 8:54 pm ET

Close Game... Ohio 19 and Oregon 17!

Anne D   January 1st, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Hi Dodie,
I must confess I cheered for Ohio State. The Big 10 school rarely wins and since I went to a Big 10 school, I felt I should support them. No doubt that's why they won :-).

Dodie   January 1st, 2010 10:00 pm ET

@ Anne D. You are just too funny! I was Cheering for Oregon. Really enjoyed our lunch! You are a hoot!! I found a website for you, will send it via e mail.

Anne D   January 1st, 2010 10:07 pm ET

I will look forward to the website. I thought you were probably cheering for Oregon as I remember you like it up there. I see "Nine" is on LKL tonight, the repeat. I read Nine was going to be pulled from several theaters already as it isn't doing nearly as well as was expected. I had no plans to see it; perhaps I missed the point of it.
I think I'll sign off. I just checked in a few minutes ago and saw you were on so wanted to say hi.
Definitely look forward to lunch again. Stay in touch via email as well.
Happy New Year and thanks again for the website.

A. Smith, Oregon   January 2nd, 2010 1:06 am ET

From the CNN informational documents:

The Haqqani network which is blamed for the recent bombing attack upon the CIA is run by Jalaluddin Haqqani and his son, Sirajuddin Haqqani.

Jaluluddin Haqqani was a mujahideen fighter against the Soviets in the 1980s, and he was funded by the CIA through the Pakistani intelligence, the ISI. 20 years after the fact that Jaluluddin Haqqani was once seen as an ally, he recognizes the CIA as truly evil people and is now targeting the CIA.

Missing from News Media's in depth reporting on this is the fact that President Karzi recently fingered the CIA as the ones that carried out a midnight raid which murdered a large number of Afghanistan young male civilians. That act of evil resulted in a regional outrage by the Afghanistan people against the American troops stationed there.

When Osama bin Ladin was a mujahideen fighter against the Soviets in the 1980s, was he also funded by the CIA through the Pakistani intelligence, the ISI? CNN Special Investigative Reporters should see if he was. I believe a vast majority of Americans would appreciate learning if he was.

Dodie   January 2nd, 2010 3:54 am ET

Why is the US experiencing more terrorist attacks than any other country in the world?

2000-2008 Dick Cheney was the Ground Zero of Corruption in the Bush/PNAC administration. (Project for the New American Century)

What is PNAC?
Their Goal: The neoconservative agenda

Established in the spring of 1997 and funded largely by the energy and arms industries, the Project for the New American Century was founded as the neoconservative think tank whose stated goal was to usher in a “new American century”. Having won the cold war and no military threat to speak of, this group of ideologues created a blueprint for the future whose agenda was to capitalize upon our surplus of military forces and funds and forcing American hegemony and corporate privatization throughout the world. In their statement of principles they outline a fourfold agenda:

1) Increase an already enormous military budget at the expense of domestic social programs

2) Toppling of regimes resistant to our corporate interests

3) Forcing democracy at the barrel of a gun in regions that have no history of the democratic process

4) Replacing the UN’s role of preserving and extending international order

Reference: oldamericancentury . org

Ebrahim Afsah, in "Creed, Cabal, or Conspiracy – The Origins of the Current Neo-Conservative Revolution in US Strategic Thinking", published in the German Law Journal, cited Jochen Bölsche's view that the goal of the PNAC was world dominance or global hegemony by the United States. According to Bölsche, Rebuilding America's Defenses "was developed by Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz and Libby, and is devoted to matters of 'maintaining US pre-eminence, thwarting rival powers and shaping the global security system according to US interests

William Rivers Pitt, editorial director of Progressive Democrats of America, wrote, in an editorial published by, that PNAC was motivated by an imperial agenda of US military expansionism, which would bring negative side effects to ordinary citizens of the United States, while enriching some industries. The defense contractors such as Boeing would drain the American tax revenue, while be handsomely paid for arming this new American empire

2000 – 2008 Cheney and his PNAC warriors (Rove, Rumsfeld) have taken control of US foreign policy, intelligence services and military so that they can proceed with their agenda. This is the reason for Cheney's power.

Patricia Wallace   January 2nd, 2010 6:18 am ET

I have a friend who lives in Italy who has visited me every year since 1997 under the Visa Waiver program. A program whereby with a ticket to the US he was given a 90 day visitors visa. Every year he left prior to the expiration of his visitors visa. This year, he was denied this right. He has always returned to Italy within the time allotted, never worked in the USA or committed a crime. I find it very interesting that he has been denied entry this year when someone who was on a terrorist "watch" list was allowed on a plane with an explosive device. It seems that our system is broken and that the wrong people are allowed entry to the US.

A. Smith, Oregon   January 2nd, 2010 6:19 am ET

The associated press is issuing a statement today regarding Iran's Nuclear enrichment standoff with America. Where Iran is warning it will produce nuclear fuel on its own if there is no deal to have the West Nations or Russia deliver the Nuclear reactor fuel rods in exchange for Tehran's enriched uranium that it currently has by the end of January.

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki spoke before Iran's state television on Saturday telling the Iranian people that the West must "make a decision" whether to accept the Iranian counter proposal to either sell Tehran the nuclear reactor fuel rods or swap it for Iran's enriched uranium. Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki stated this is an "ultimatum."

What was not stated is the fact that the total amount of enriched uranium Iran has and is capable of mining from its own Uranium yellow-cake processing facility's is not enough to supply the nuclear reactor fuel for a medium sized Nuclear Reactor, only a single small one. Iran is planning several medium to large Nuclear Reactor sites, France, Germany and now Russia is completing a medium sized Nuclear Reactor for Iran. This information makes the Iranian 'ultimatum' not completely forthright. They lack enough low level enriched Uranium to even power a single medium or large Nuclear Reactor.

To all Bible thumpers:

LKL is transmitted all over the world and this blog can be read by all!!

Dodie   January 2nd, 2010 12:11 pm ET

Ah Ted, just love your wit and humor!!!

Ted   January 2nd, 2010 12:19 pm ET

Hit the wrong key again, so we continue the message here:

Stop quoting the Bible on every little subject, because other nations think we are the greatest bigots ever lived on this Earth. As you can see, nobody is quoting the Koran, the Talmud or any other books of religious content, only the Bible is being misused by born again christians who never read anything else, but the Bible with its fairy tales.
For your information 5,000 years old assyrian scripts describe the same story of the big flood, but Noah has another assyrian name. This was before the jewish emergence into history, so are the assyrians the chosen people, or the babylonians, who have similar textes and lived long before the jewish Bible creators.

The truth is, jews copied those stories, gave the persons jewish names, declared it to be the word of Jehowa, their invented god.
Since about 400 BC the jews have a theocratic goverment, meaning religion rules their whole life.
Israel today is not democratic, but theocratic country, because if you do not have the jewish religion you are a second class citizen. On Sabbath the country will be shot down according to their religion. The orthodox rabbies and their followers make the decisions and the politicians can carry them out. They are not better than the iranian mullahs.

In name of the Bible and Jesus we had countless wars and millions killed. In 1099 the Crusaders took in Jerusalem, killed every living being that came in front of them, making no difference if christian, jew or moslem. Over 10,000 people were massacred.
When Saladin reconquered the city he allowed everyone to leave in peace, nobody was murdered after the fighting stopped.
That much for christianity and peace of Jesus.

Dodie   January 2nd, 2010 2:25 pm ET

Thank You Ted for Quality information.

Iran has a Theoretical government. I only hope we do NOT follow in that direction.

A. Ahmad   January 2nd, 2010 4:34 pm ET

There are many common things in Koran, Bible and Talmud. Unfortunately, people focus more on differences.

New development about Yemen according to Arab Media:
– British Prime Minster calls for an international conference on Yemen.
– United States increases its Aid to Yemen.
-Islamic extremists in Somalia urge all elements of terrorist organizations to cross to Yemen to support Al-Qaeda member.

A. Smith, Oregon   January 2nd, 2010 10:16 pm ET

If Muslim Ayatollahs, Clerics, Mullahs and Immans refuse to remove the 100 some verses that order, command and expect faithful Muslims to kidnap, torture, ensnare and murder infidels then America and Western Nations around the world should remove the Muslim Religion from the list of religions they officially recognize.

Muslims are taught those verses are the words of the Muslim god, to be followed implicitly to the letter. Remove those verses, or remove the entire Muslim religion.

A. Ahmad   January 2nd, 2010 11:11 pm ET

I agree the problem is that extremists and fundamentalists either Ayatollahs or Clerics spread a message of hate.

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   January 3rd, 2010 9:22 am ET

A great 2010 everyone.
It's 3 hours to Jan 4 here. Just gpt back from a four-day vacation.
A Ahmad is right. There are so many similarities in the Koran, Bible and Talmud.
I have read the bible many times, being schooled in the covent run by the Franciscan missionary.
A Smith, you must read the Koran too. if I can read the bible, so can you read our religious book,

Ted   January 3rd, 2010 2:26 pm ET

Both the Bible and the Koran are based on the Talmud and the jewish beliefs of one God. Here must be mentioned that the jews worshiped many gods until the 5th century BC when the king declared there is only one god Jehowa and those who did not convert were punished. Jews staying in Babylonia kept their old many gods religion for a long time.
The Talmud copied sayings and stories from the Assyrians, Babylonian and the Persians, who in return probably took over such textes from other earlier civilizations. There is absolutely nothing sacred about those textes.
The big flood was not an act of God, but the melting of the ice after the last ice age in Europe good 10,000 years ago. The Black Sea was at that time an inland fresh water lake about good 2,000 feet under the present sea level. When the Mediterraine filled up it broke through the land barrier at todays Istanbul and great water masses flooded the Black Sea killing those who lived in low areas. Scientists are sure this being the origin of that story and other Bible stories have a similar natural causes, blown out of proportion by countless retelling the same story to fit a new situation.

A. Smith

How would you go about forbidding the Moslem religion with about 1.5 billion believers? We have the freedom of religion and our born again christians cause more problems in the USA than the moslems do.
How about those rabbies in Jerusalem who try to turn the history back 2,000 years, creating a great Israel by driving out the moslems who lived there for 1,500 years? What about all those jokers in the Vatican walking around in Holloween costums?

We could start by shooting all mullahs, rabbies, priests and bishops, the pope, all preachers like the Osteens who rob their congregations, ministers, etc. The fish starts stinking at the head!

robert (speedy) Gonzales   January 3rd, 2010 9:49 pm ET

The moral values that America was created on seem to be directly from Bibical text. Thou shalt not steal, lie, etc. It also states that we have an immortal soul, I want to know as a, Bible Thumper, why my wish is that every human finds eternal peace after this brief existence on earth. As I read the Bible it states that there will many who come before God and he will say I KNOW NOT YOU! If you want some temporary solice know this, Any and all who pervert the Word of God will spend eternity in seperation from God just as those many who refuse to accept the free gift offered by Jesus. We will all DIE and answer for our lives on this earth, the Bible states over and over again without love we have nothing- treat your brothers as you wish to be treated–pray for leaders-be willing to die for your spouse-pray for your enemies-give without expecting anything in return-- look to the Heavens, it has no end as your soul will exist FOREVER. Do what ever works for you, as for me, as a Bible Thumper, I have felt the power of God in my life. The Bible is and can be a road map to true happiness. Read it and spend some kneel time!!!!!

MourningMJ   January 3rd, 2010 10:50 pm ET


She wrote this in the Michael Jackson blog:

Thanks for the warning Larry! I'm sure Joe will seek a piece of the royalty's. The Jackson family likely is sitting on dozens of unreleased songs they'll slowly release to the gnawing and hungry MJ fans.

SHE'S SUCH A WONDERFUL HUMAN ISN'T SHE?? Keep stroking her ego!!!! She loves dropping hateful comments and waits for people to feed into her...

A. Smith, Oregon   January 4th, 2010 1:26 am ET

@ Ted, thank you for your insights and others for your kind comments.

I do not feel nor believe that the Creator encourages anyone to murder another. I do not feel nor believe the Creator instructs those faithful to the Creator to treat women any less than men. I believe the Creator loves all of his children, regardless of gender, race or ethnic nationality.

Religions that teach and orders their followers that the Creator instructs or teaches them to murder someone is anti-spiritual and does not in my opinion have any harmony with Creation, therefore sooner than later they will be permanently removed, much like the human body removes diseases from its body.

Dodie   January 4th, 2010 2:37 am ET

@ MourningMJ

You have me confused. What is hateful about that comment? She is very pragmatic and simply expressing an opinion. I am sure Ann did not mean anything by it!

Moses   January 4th, 2010 8:10 am ET

Dear people of United States of America & the European Union, I hope this message would be conveyed to the entire good people of this World at large. From the deepest abode of my heart please accept my heart-felt sympathy to the terrors caused by people of insanity. I earnestly will like to contribute to the unbelievable incidence occurring lately in the name of terrorism.

Here is my point...
Is it rational to induce that all Nigerians are equally terrorists simply because of a single young man? I remain submissive to the betterment of mankind. Thus, I and on behalf of the people of the Republic of Nigeria, we refuse to be condemned as a result of these mishaps.

We, Nigerians love Americans (U.S) and the Europeans, though I can not speak entirely for other citizens of Nigeria. I will be glad if we stop this heart-killing sentiment talk in respect of racism.

We are all one in the Lord our God!

Please let peace reign...this is a message and a prayer. If we are ever related, I believe we've met.


Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   January 4th, 2010 8:58 am ET

All this while I thought A. Smith was Adam Smith, Alex Smith. A male. So it's a she.
Hi Ann, I don't regatd you as hateful. Just a wee bit ignorant sometimes. Or you just pretend to be ignorant.

Simonsays/Orlando   January 4th, 2010 12:45 pm ET

To make sure I do everything I can to vote out all the current members of congress. We need to replace them with representatives that do not have a "pork barrel" mentality. This group is totally wasting our tax money.

Dodie   January 4th, 2010 1:39 pm ET

@ Moses from Nigeria

There are good and bad people in every country including mine, the US. It would be very foolish to globalize an entire group of people due to one person’s behavior. I am sure many Americans realize people from Nigeria are hardworking good people. Your plea is understood. I am happy that you were able to send this message through Larry King @ CNN. I would enjoy seeing your view on all subjects. Your English is very good! Thank You Moses!

We have a free society and everyone has the right to worship the God, or Gods; he chooses. However this should be done in your own home privately, or in a church, temple or moshee, but not on a street corner or in a blog.
I have friends for 30 years and I do not know exactly what religion they practice, because they just don´t talk about it. Only jews let everyone know that they are jewish, (I have jewish friends, too), and the Bible Thumpers make sure they let everyone know that they read the Bible.

Who cares? Yes you are right, the Bible has good things like the 10 commandments, etc. however it also says "if you live by the sword you will die by the sword"!!!
How about telling all those christians who are killing women and children in many countries that the Bible does not allow such behavior and they should not kill!! They should love their brothers!
How about those born again christians who are bombing abortion clinics killing doctors and nurses who work there? Those are the real terrorists, because they are killing their own citizens for a twisted idea of the Bible.
