South Park to Iraq?

Former CIA Director James Woosley and his family have an interesting suggestion. The US government should encourage Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame to make more movies denigrating leaders in the Middle East.

Woosley actually testified before the Senate suggesting this (so he is not totally kidding).
Recently one of us was testifying on Iran before a Senate Committee and was asked, in effect, what steps short of force might help undercut the authority of Iran’s hideous government. The response — see if you can encourage the creators of South Park to go after Ahmadinejad and Khamenei they way they went after Kim Jong Il in Team America: World Police — produced an interesting reaction. The younger Senate staffers, reporters, and members of the audience giggled and grinned wickedly. Everyone over 40 looked absolutely clueless. Definitely the right demographics.

They feel that the humor and satire can actually do a lot of good, particularly among the young people of the region. An interesting read indeed.
