Summary FUNNY POLITICSComedian and TV presenter Jon Stewart has made headlines around the world this week with his mission to try to 'Restore Sanity' in the United States. Over 200,000 people, including Dateline's Aaron Lewis, attended Stewart's rally in Washington last weekend, with placards poking fun at the more extreme views often seen in the US media. But there was a serious side to the rally, with protesters saying they're fed up with the climate of fear and anger that's been driving American politics in the lead-up to the mid-term elections. Aaron travels with a group of protesters from New York to see what to make of this new development in America's political landscape. QUITTING CONGOAs UN peacekeepers prepare to leave their largest and most expensive mission - in the Democratic Republic of Congo - there are sharply differing views on how well-equipped that African nation is to fend for itself against violent militia groups there. While the DRC says it no longer needs the United Nations, many fear the withdrawal of the 'Blue Helmets' will lead to an escalation of fighting that's already killed more than five million people. Reporter Sam Benstead, from the UK-based ORTV, travelled to Congo to see for himself how well prepared the country is for the UN's departure. His report raises the question: can Congo really stand alone or will it slide into a new humanitarian catastrophe?DEADLY FEUDn June this year, hundreds of people were killed and thousands were displaced in ethnic clashes in the Central Asian region of Kyrgyzstan. The violence prompted Kuranda Seyit, an ethnic Uzbek living in Australia, to travel to Kyrgyzstan to find out more about the killings. He discovered burned-out buildings, scores of fresh graves, and obtained secretly-filmed video of violent attacks, which he smuggled back to Australia.Kuranda spoke to Dateline about his journey, and provided us with the hidden-camera footage for a view of what happened.
