    Not at all. There is no reason for a journalist to insert himself into the conversation. I didn't even like it when he went on late night comedy shows. What's he doing there? Just tell us what happened or is happening. Make a cutesy joke here and there. Don't act like something your not and don't draw attention to yourself. Leave that to the Cable News Talking Heads and Olympic spots

    Maybe you can clear it up then. The video I saw was on Letterman, he said "we were shot at by RPGS and small arms fire". And correct me if I'm wrong, but did the pilot not get a purple heart on the flight? Then again, I think I've heard there was four different pilots flying that hilo...
