Tonight on AC360, Anderson spoke with Brandon Webb, a friend and former Navy SEAL who trained Chris Kyle. Kyle, “America’s Deadliest Sniper” was killed at a gun range on Saturday.
Webb said Kyle was “an American Hero” who didn’t like to take credit for being one of the most accomplished snipers in the battlefield. Webb spoke about the work Kyle did with vets and how he chose to spend his time with those who suffer from PTSD and were falling thru the cracks.
As he faces prostitution allegations, Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) talks with CNN chief Congressional correspondent Dana Bash on Capitol Hill today. Bash asked the senator about the prostitution allegations and why it took him so long to pay back his travel on a private plane. Sen. Menendez to CNN’s Bash on the prostitution allegations, “The smears that right-wing blogs have been pushing since the election. And that is totally unsubstantiated. It's amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a Web site can drive that type of story into the mainstream. But that's what they've done successful. Now, nobody can find them. No one ever met them. No one ever talked to them, but that's where we're at. So the bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false and, you know, that's the bottom line.” More from the interview is after the jump.

CNN's Fareed Zakaria welcomed former U.S. Vice President Al Gore to the Sunday, Feb. 3rd edition of FAREED ZAKARIA GPS. In a wide-ranging interview that covered topics including gun control, the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera English, and Washington's political gridlock, Mr. Gore gave his assessment of what President Obama should do to ensure a successful legacy in his second term.
Said Mr. Gore about Mr. Obama:
"I do believe that he should move boldly on the agenda that he articulated in his inaugural address. I was very pleased that he put the climate crisis front and center, the first issue he brought up, a very bold commitment. He spent more words on that than any other issue. I was very happy about that. And I think he will follow - I think he has to follow through. And there are some actions he can take that do not require congressional approval. There is a law on the books that requires the EPA to regulate pollution. The Supreme Court has agreed with the obvious interpretation that global warming pollution is pollution. It's been applied to new coal plants. It should be applied to all facilities."
Fareed Zakaria GPS airs Sundays on CNN/U.S. at 10:00am and 1:00pm, and on CNN/International at 7:00am and 3:00pm. All times Eastern.
CNN.com recently published vintage photographs of the British fab four The Beatles. Though these photos were taken by photographer Henry Grossman in the mid-1960s, they were developed within the last decade. The photos capture scene shots of the 1965 movie “Help!”, George Harrison with his future wife-to-be Pattie Boyd and the band meditating in Wales together. This isn’t the first time CNN Photos has created a gallery with unseen celebrity pictures; before she was famous, Lady Gaga’s co-worker/photographer snapped photos of a 19-year-old Gaga in 2005.
