The U.S. Army confirms that Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” has arrived in Iraq to tape a week of shows. Colbert’s trip is dubbed “Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando.” The visit was organized by United Service Organisations (USO), which arranges entertainment and support for American troops overseas. “The USO counts this as military service, right?” Colbert said in a press release. “I might want to run for office some day.”
