Bono Compliments U.S. for Leadership in AIDS Response

October 8, 2013

Appearing on Sunday on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS," musician and anti-poverty activist Bono discussed the AIDS response, saying, "The AIDS stuff -- the United States is so far out in front. ... 10 million people owe their lives to the U.S., left and right. George Bush started it. President Obama is finishing it." According to a video clip from the show, Bono added, "This tiny little virus that's wreaked so much havoc in so many people's lives -- the greatest health crisis in 600 years is on the run because of American leadership. That's important" (Miks, 10/5).
