Interesting article. I follow a lot of political analysts on Twitter, saw a bunch of tweets about this event, and was surprised to see Bono among all of the other politicians there. I guess I shouldn't really be that surprised since he's been involved in this field for many years now...still, it's interesting to see a "rock star" among ordinary politicians. I think it's great that he continues to be involved in something he's passionate about and seems to be doing good work for some of the poorest people in the world.

This conference is usually visited by all the military and security people in politics and it is a great thing that people like Bono and Bill Gates and others are there to point out what is needed in the world.
