Stephen Colbert isn’t saying when he is going downrange to entertain U.S. troops.
He says the Pentagon has told him to keep quiet and he has made the
fact that he can’t talk about his trip a recurring gag on his show.
Recently, he had a series of puzzles on an episode that allegedly reveal when and where he is going.
As it turns out, it didn’t take a puzzle master to find out that Colbert is headed to Iraq in June.
“The Colbert show asked for, and was given by [Multi-National
Force-Iraq], some guidance on how they should do any advance notice of
the shows — they can speak in generics, specifying that shows would be
next month/early June, but not mention specific dates,” said Air Force
Maj. John Redfield, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command.
