Stephen Colbert interviews Lt. Gen. Charles H. Jacoby Jr., commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, and asks where we are now in the war, what “trust exercises” he does with the Iraqis and just what is the difference between Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran? Check out this clip from Wednesday night’s “Colbert Report.”

Basically, I can’t watch the Daily Show anymore because although Jon Stewart mocks the corporate media, he ends up regurgitating most of their talking points for them. I just hope this isn’t what’s happening to Stephen Colbert.

As I said in the other article, this was probably Colbert’s dullest show. Earlier on he had the puppet, deputy prime minister Barham Salih on who kept thanking the troops for coming to save his country.
Now he has this leuitenant on who claims the surge worked because of how the troops “conducted their duties” whatever the hell that means. No objections from Colbert who just reinforces all of this.

I’m sure Colbert has his reasons for doing this, his satire has been too incisive and poignant in the past so I won’t give up on him. But he is treating the troops with kid gloves, and toning his demeanor way down, I don’t like this new Colbert-lite.
