Secondly, is this the most pressing issue they can be working on right now? Lets get some real work done people.
You know what those advertising people say: Sex sells. And sex plus weirdness confuses people, giving them a combination of weird boners and actual boners and weirdness about having the actual boners and generally making everyone feel a way they may or not want to ever be feeling. Maybe it sells, who knows. They say a couple long sentences.

However, an important tool that isn't mentioned in the story is a citizen police review board. It is easy for a group of officers to sit around and justify what others might see as abusive behavior. What is needed is a group of citizens, who can review the video, and respond to complaints. Such a body removed from the structure of the department is less likely to overlook abuse, and will give citizens a real feeling police work for them, not to control them.

While some Iraqis may want a continued American presence in the country, it isn't clearly beneficial or necessary. American power in the region should be enough to prevent Iran from provoking any real trouble, and minor problems can be handled by Iraqis. The presence of American troops on the other hand continues to provide fuel to elements that don't like America and don't want to see democracy in Iraq. This fuel makes the country more unstable than it might be otherwise.

It's even worse on the cable news networks. The story has been updated and broken over and over for what seems to be every hour on the hour and these are networks that stopped giving time to sports stories when ESPN cornered the market.
Is it just me or is Tiger-gate getting too much coverage?
I have no faith in Washington's ability to get things done for Americans.
