I'm always glad to see our court jesters like Letterman and Stewart and Colbert do their best to make sure something that the public should be paying attention to doesn't fly under the radar. David Letterman did just that with this Top Ten segment and so you didn't have to be a reader of The Nation or watch Rachel Maddow's show to know the U.S. screwed the pooch on this one.

How we ended up negotiating with some fake Taliban leader is beyond me but as Scahill pointed out, it doesn't bode well for any of our supposed intelligence on the ground in Afghanistan.

Can you help us out?
