39. Maybe in the green zone? Read this:

Mr. Kaloogian, take your war tourism and stick it up your microphone. You and your buddies stayed for a mere four days in the luxiorious confines of the Green Zone and saw images like these. Real troops are there for a year and see images like these.

This is a war zone, not a photo op. For the Troops in Baghdad, Tikrit and Fallujah, who are being deployed for their second and third tours, this war is far from a 'vacation adventure.' This type of shameless cheerleading and agenda-driven journalism is an insult to those who have sacrificed on the frontlines of this war and experienced its terrible toll.

America needs leaders, not salesmen. If these Truth Tour super-patriots really want to support the war effort, there are plenty of slots in Army Civil Affairs units for aspiring radio show hosts. Maybe some of them will be inspired to sign up after their recent trip to the Sandbox.
