I dream of Olberman...

...taking an opportunity to do an embed like this. If anyone in media needs an overview of reality - he is it. Make sure and read all of this great write-up of clue.
It is 5:30 a.m. on Day 8.

It was billed as a three-day tagalong tour with Hotel Company, the toughest gang on the third Canadian rotation to Afghanistan.

This journalist was invited to witness a quick military strike and count the Taliban dead before the convoy's triumphant return to Kandahar Airfield to shower, dine on real food and marvel anew at flush-toilet technology.

But Week Two has dawned and this rediverted, revamped, oft-extended mission drags on, waiting for supplies to land in the middle of nothing with no reliable end date.
Hat tip John at Argghhh!!!
