CONTINGENCY OPERATING BASE QAYYARAH WEST, Iraq – I was flipping through the radio stations we receive out here at Q-West (there aren’t many) and came across an audio feed of an Armed Forces Network television channel.

The broadcast was the audio feed from “Jeopardy!” On a starry night in the Iraqi desert, I listened to Alex Trebek deliver answers about cows, literature and history.

Freedom truly has come to Iraq. Or at least the greatest quiz show of all time.
