Follow-up questions we'd like to hear

But never will from the likes of Tom Brokaw (or Keith Olbermann or Jon Stewart for that matter):

Sens. McCain and Obama, you both have claimed that America is a "force for good in the world." Considering that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis (the best scientific estimate is over one million) died as a result of the U.S. invasion, and an undisputed two million Iraqis have been forced to flee their homeland and another two million internally displaced, and considering that Sunnis and Shias in Iraq used to intermingle and intermarry and are now almost totally separated into ethnic communities separated by huge walls and checkpoints, please explain how that "force for good" is working out for the Iraqis. And if, contrary to the evidence, you still hold to this "force for good" theory, please explain what right the U.S. had to inflict this "good" on the Iraqi people who, apart for a few con men like Ahmad Chalabi, didn't ask for our "help"?

Sens. Obama and McCain, you both have talked about the Holocaust, and the need to prevent a second one. Please explain why you think that the Palestinian people, who had nothing whatsoever to do with the first Holocaust, should be the ones who should have paid and continue to pay the price for that event by having been displaced from their homeland.

Sens. McCain and Obama, you both continue to maintain that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Considering that the latest National Intelligence Estimate, the best judgment of the U.S. intelligence community, reached precisely the opposite conclusion, please tell us what evidence you're basing your conclusion on, and how it is that you're in possession of evidence which the intelligence community evidently is not.

Just askin'!
