Gunfire Erupts During Interview

When Kyra Phillips interviewed UC San Diego professor Babak Rahimi in Tehran we were stunned when he very calmly referenced gunfire going on in the background. He was definitely calm under pressure. Watch Kyra's interview with him on Iran's cyberrevolution and listen as the gunshots get louder.

Tune in to CNN Newsroom with Kyra Phillips as we continue to check in with Professor Rahimi.

    I'm concerned about what Obama did yesterday. He signed an executive order giving GAYS and LESBIANS who live together medical benefits. I'm not against that, but correct me if I'm wrong. In most states its ILLEGAL for GAYS AND LESBIANS TO MARRY, yet Obama is "giving" the federal employee's coverage of that following. If a man and woman... Read More simply live together and are federal employee's, they don't have those same have to be GAY or LESBIAN to get medical coverage. Whats wrong with that picture ??
    I thought the 60's was the civil rights movement, but it appears old laws get swept under the carpet and if your a government official, you just proclaim something and its law. What happened to WE THE PEOPLE and OUR CONSTITUTION. Is there "two" laws ?
