This was emailed to me.... ......a piece about some of the ridiculous questions foreign reporters have been asking Brigadier General Vincent Brooks at the daily CENTCOM briefings. On April 3, an Al Jazeera correspondent asked Brooks: "We've heard various reports throughout the day about coalition forces being about 10 to 20 kilometers on the outskirts of Baghdad, close to Saddam International Airport. Can you clarify that matter for us? And I'm sure you're aware, sir, that the Iraqis contest your attestation that you've inflicted heavy damage on the Republican Guards in the past few days. I was wondering if and when you can show us videos, combat footage of that, proof of that?" Because, you know, the Iraqi press operation has proved incredibly reliable in recent days. But that was just a warm-up. The question of the day--nay, the question of the millennium--came from a reporter from a Hong Kong TV network: "If the plan to take down Baghdad didn't succeed and the coalition would have to retreat, and without giving a detailed description of the location, where would the coalition troops retreat to, since most of the cities around Baghdad are only partially secured, not completely taken by U.S.-led force? Thank you." This one get's my vote! Only sad I didn't see this last week..
