Todd sent this gem to my inbox today, though I'd share:

"They would not let you rest, day or night. Stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down. Don't sleep. Don't lie on the floor," one prisoner said through a translator. The detainees were also forced to listen to rap artist Eminem's "Slim Shady" album. The music was so foreign to them it made them frantic, sources said.

"Frantic"? Or was that a burst of spontaneous poppin' n' lockin' in Abu Ghraib?

I think this means Eminem has overtaken AC/DC -- whose "You Shook Me All Night Long" was used to bombard Manuel Noriega's compound -- on the psy-ops countdown. Scary stuff, but if a nuke ever goes off in a major American city, mark my words, even liberals may end up condoning the use of "Barbie Girl" by Aqua, Geneva Convention notwithstanding.
