1:26 am
are. so if we were to go around this corner here, we'd be exposed to that sniper. and what we also saw when we were there is how isis people have been trying to survive this bombardment. we saw the remains of tents and inside the tents they dug trenches about a yard, a yard and a half deep to try to protect themselves from what has been fairly intense bombardment, certainly overnight it was pretty crazy. >> pretty crazy to see you there in that helmet and vest. terrific reporting, benwedeman, just a terrific job. not wearing the helmet and vest for dramatic effect. we hope they remain safe. boeing is facing big questions, two of its newer planes crash in five months.
