Right up there with Daryn Kagan:
I'm being told now we have Lieutenant Colonel Jordan Jones at Camp Liberty in Baghdad on the phone. You may be wondering, in the middle of Hurricane Katrina, why we would go to Baghdad to do this interview. But there's an interesting twist. Lieutenant Colonel Jordan Jones is actually the commander of the 101st Battalion, 256th Louisiana Brigade. And he and his men and women are set to come home in eight days from Baghdad.
And, Colonel, I'm curious, you're coming from this war on terrorism in Baghdad, back home to Louisiana, where you see what's happening here to Americans. And I'm curious if you're going to have to get right back into a different kind of fight once you're home in eight days. [emphasis added]

Oh, and we weren't wondering:

The moment you said "in Baghdad on the phone" we knew.
