The Daily Show Reports from Iraq...No, Seriously

Come Monday, Comedy Central's The Daily Show begins Operation Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

Comedy Central released this statement regarding the special reports: “Join The Daily Show with Jon Stewart for ‘Operation Silent Thunder: The Daily Show in Iraq,’ a week of special reports filed from Iraq. Yes, actual Iraq, not green-screen Iraq. Daily Show senior war correspondent Rob Riggle will provide in-depth coverage and insights from the front lines throughout the country where he was embedded with the troops and learned just how hot 120° really feels.”

Riggle himself is a major in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, where he served in Liberia, Kosovo and Afghanistan.

Rush Limbaugh, your Hummer is waiting....hump that rucksack, soldier!
