CNN Prime Time: Valentine's Day alternatives, Houston money woes?

Children trained for suicide attacks

“Utterly despicable” is the response of the top U.S. general in Afghanistan to word that young children are being trained by the Taliban to carry out suicide attacks. Two 10-year-old would-be bombers have been rearrested, after being arrested last year and subsequently pardoned. On CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr looks at Gen. John Allen’s scathing comments.

Did Whitney have financial problems?

Was money tight for Whitney Houston at the time of her death? On CNN’s Erin Burnett “OutFront,” a panel looks at rumors that she had to ask friends for money, consistency of her income before her death and soaring sales of her music after it.

The RidicuList: Valentine's Day

Ahh, Valentine’s Day. It’s arguably the most divisive holiday of the year. The roses, the expensive dinners, the chocolate ... you probably either love it or you hate it. But for those who want to celebrate while simultaneously bucking the system, there is hope. CNN’s Anderson Cooper looks at some alternatives to the same old, same old.

      My problem with the rotrute debate is not whether it is or not. That's for the legal brains. My problem is why do we go to the public and reporters for their thoughts on the subject? What would these leftists have us do? Ask politely for intel on terrorist plans? Anything we do to make it uncomfortable for these murderers could be described as rotrute. Any deprivation is potentially cruel but it has suddenly become a very cruel world and some of these fools would be the first finger pointers if we have another 9-11. Water boarding plays on a fear that resides in all of us. The inability to breathe. Don't pompously say the intel gathered is bad because there is no way some reporter would know that.
