THAT'S... THANK YOU.

IRAQ.

REMEMBER?

WE INVADED IT BECAUSE 9/11 ANDWEAPONS AND THEN WE HAD TO

PRETEND THAT WE WERE REALLYTRYING BRING DEMOCRACY AND

STABILITY TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

I MEAN, DON'T REMEMBER WHATHAPPENED OVER THERE, BUT I

GUESS HISTORY WILL BE THE JUDGE.

INSURGENTS ARE MAKING A COMEBACKTHIS MORNING.

>> Jon: HOLY [BLEEPED].

TIKRIT, TOO, THEY TOOK TIKRIT?

TIKRIT AND MOSUL, THE TWINCITIES, AS NO ONE THERE CALLS

THEM.

[LAUGHTER]ALTHOUGH NOW I THINK THE

MILITANTS WILL PROBABLYCONSOLIDATE THEIR GAINS, FORTIFY

THEIR POSITION RESEARCH SCHOOLSFOR THEIR KIDS MAYBE.

>> THE MILITANTS ARE ADVANCINGTOWARDS IRAQ'S CAPITAL OF

BAGHDAD.
