Warrior One

Warrior One

CNN's ill-named and in-poor-taste "Warrior One". This Hummer H1 was bought by CNN at a Kuwaiti delaership in 2002; used by CNN reporters during the Gulf War in 2003 (the one we won, kicking Saddam out of Kuwait). CNN redeemed themselves at the SEMA SHOW by announcing they are selling WARRIOR ONE at the Barret-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, January, 2007, and giving all the monies (they say now) to a charitable organization which arranges for family members of injured soliders to live near the military hospital where their family member is being treated, sort of like a 'military' Ronald McDonald House.
