Birds Eye View of Iraq

Do you know that thing Denzel Washington said in Philadelphia, where the mean older lawyers would be equivocating (that means lying) and he’d go, “I don’t get it. Tell it to me like I’m a five-year-old.” When he said it, he meant, “Cut the shit.” But when we say it, we mean, “Seriously, daily reports of murders and thick books about Wolfowitz aren’t helping. We. Do not. Get this.” So we called up Zeyad, an Iraqi journalist, and said, “Hey Zeyad, this Iraq country thing, tell it to us like we’re five-years-old.” The rules were “no research” and “no hard thinking.” Just give it to us like you’re our uncle, driving us from the airport into the city. And this is what he made.
