3.28pm: Wow, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez is asking a retired admiral some very silly questions, such as why can't we use our nuclear submarines? (Because they couldn't do anything, the admiral says gently.) But then Sanchez goes one step further in demanding to know why the US military aren't being used in the Gulf right now:
We see our guys over there solving the problems of the Iraqis ... and now it's our country that's in need, why can't we use those boots on the ground to solve our problems in our country?
Who needs Fox News when CNN has comedy gold like that?
