"Do you want to know why we're in Afghanistan?" Ventura asked Morgan, before telling him.
"It came to me six months ago when a story came out that they found a vein of lithium there that they say is worth a trillion dollars," Ventura explained. "Now, what is lithium used for? Every cell phone, every computer, and soon to be electric cars."
Captain Self was sent to rescue a missing-in-action Navy SEAL. In the course of this operation, Nate ended up fighting against enemy soldiers from before dawn until after dusk. Eventually, he located the SEAL -- but the man was already dead. Still, Ranger Self brought the SEAL's body back. However, Nate lost six of his own men in the course of the operation.
Some nice plot threads were woven together, which should make for some interesting drama as we continue hurtling toward our April 29 deadline. It was nice to see Aaron Stark pulled back into the saga, along with a continued focus on Jericho. I still haven't figured out how they're connected to everything just yet, but it should be fun watching Stark try and find out.
The enigmatic Dyson Frost surprised me by taking a far more active and present role in the events of the episode than I would have ever expected. I was anticipating this mysterious shadowy figure making cryptic statements in the background to confound and frustrate Mark, and us. I couldn't have been more wrong.
(S04E01) After what seemed like more than a year, 'Army Wives' finally returned to Lifetime, picking up pretty much where we left off. That's good news for some, and not such good news for others. With a flash of a gunshot, the season was off and running, with plenty of drama and turmoil. For more on Fort Marshall, the tribe and Roxy's bun in the oven, read on after the jump.
And, in such a relatively short period of time, the news landscape has changed on both the broadcast and the cable fronts, including the fact that on Monday, when Diane Sawyer takes over ABC's World News, he'll be the only male evening news anchor left.
Williams (or as he's been called lately, BriWi) was nice enough to answer some questions via e-mail about his new competition and how he lets his famous sense of humor come through during a serious newscast. Finally, he gives me some insight into what he's listening to right now (if you've seen previous interviews with him, he leans more towards the college radio side).
Yesterday on 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,' the host opened up the show mentioning the President's Address and his plans to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan next year. Apparently, this same exact speech had been given by President Bush before! Giving credit where credit is due, Stewart makes the quick comparisons between the two Presidential speeches on Afghanistan and and the parallels are startling.
Watch this full episode of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' on Slash Control after the jump.
Pundits and TV viewers from up and down the dial are calling out President Obama for airing his big speech on the troop surge in Afghanistan and preempting ABC's airing of the classic Christmas cartoon A Charlie Brown Christmas. If this causes a move for impeachment, I may never awake from my laughter coma.
Not only was the story the top headline on yesterday morning's Drudge Report, but the pundits really jumped in to turn the President into their own personal Scrooge.
Watch the video of the President's speech below.
The day-long programming event will include exclusive messages from both Senator McCain and Senator Obama. The programming block will not only pay tribute to the sacrifice of these young soldiers, but also elevate their issues in light of the 2008 Presidential campaigns.
Kathy Mullen and Michael Frith, two members of Jim Henson's original Muppet team, have joined forces with British charity No Strings Attached to create a film that warns children in Afghanistan about the dangers of land mines. No Strings Attached uses puppets as a teaching aid, and together the team came up with "The Story of the Little Carpet Boy," a tale based loosely on Pinocchio. The puppets used in the film are similar to the Muppets we all grew up with, but none of the American Muppets were used in the story. One puppet loses several limbs before he learns to avoid land mines completely. According to studies, sixty people a month are killed by land mines in Afghanistan, and half of that number are under eighteen.
