Think TV Anchors Are Stupid?

Diane Sawyer, noted military strategist, establishes a new mark for "utterly clueless."

Jonathan Karl reported from Baghdad:

...This is the fourth day in a row of attacks inside the Green Zone and as you mentioned this one appears to have landed actually inside the US Embassy compound. Life has been especially nerve-wracking inside the Green Zone. Yesterday alone there were 16 rocket and mortar attacks that landed inside the Green Zone, and in each case the US military suspects these were special groups, militia groups associated with Moktada al-Sadr....

So Ms. Sawyer responds:

Alright, I want to come back to that in a second, but how much of a surprise is it that they can actually get inside the embassy? How fortified is that?

Mmmmmmm....ok, Diane.

I have a friend who knows from artillery. He'd be glad to show you how all that stuff happens, Diane. OR, Diane, you could watch a 3-point basket being made during the NCAA tournament.
