The U.S. Defense Department told Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton that her questions about how the United States eventually plans to withdraw from Iraq boosts enemy propaganda.

Who else has asked about this? Republican Sen. Richard Lugar for one. Did he get a letter?
Are the Republicans afraid of Senator Clinton? Especially since in the polls the number one Republican candidate that people would vote for is "None of the Above?" USA Today

Olbermann started Countdown tonight with a Special Comment about this. I'm sure it will be on the net soon. I'll post it here when copies start coming up.
