The War's Over, Stephen

As the Washington Post noted this morning, it's been an understated end (yes, REAL end, not that "we're starting the drawdown" 2010 announcement or the administration's "we couldn't reach an agreement to keep troops here any longer" revelation earlier this fall) to what for years was the most politically explosive of American military operations. Of the commentary and reaction that has been circulating over the last 24 hours on Iraq, this Stephen Colbert's show with Gen. Ray Odierno Wednesday night struck me as one of the more fitting ways to mark the withdrawal of the final U.S. troops from Iraq.

Remember, it was Colbert who took his whole show to Baghdad when American attention to the conflict was waning in 2009.

Click here to see Ray & Stephen (sort-of) harmonize on "I'll be Home for Christmas."
