Chinook Diplomacy

A little late in noticing this - hat tip to the Paragraph Farmer.

It's a story of how the US provided massive amounts of aid to the victims of the Pakistan earthquake using the heavy-lift Chinook helicopters based in Afghanistan. I don't recall seeing this story reported in the major media - I wonder why?

Actually, I saw something very similar to this story a while back. I believe it was reported on NBC Nightly News, but don't quote me on that one. Granted, it wasn't a huge story, but it was one of the human-interest stories that they usually have toward the end of the program.

Hey, will you be participating in the OLN OS pilot? If so, I'll see you there!

It was good to see you yesterday, Laura. Very informative session. I don't think we'll be switching anytime soon, but it was good to see what the state of the art in OSCMS is.

I'm glad the story got at least *some* play. Thanks for the info.
