So, the appalling Katie Couric is traveling to Iraq after all. “I’m curious about very basic questions regarding living conditions, about how much fear there is in the street, about how the soldiers really are doing,” she told the AP. But such “Today” show presumptuousness aside, there’s a larger purpose at work. As her handler, Rick Kaplan, explained, in Howard Kurtz’s paraphrase, “…the goal was to provide greater context before mid-September, when President Bush makes public the recommendations of the U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen.
