Speaking on the Senate floor to a nearly empty chamber, Sen. Dick Durbin (?-Ill.) uses a photograph of an American occupier's use of "nazi like tactics" inside Iraq's capitol city. Said the Senator: "They pass out air conditioners, build schools, rebuild power transfer stations, bring clean water and food AND the only thing they can do is provide first generation Playstations to Iraq kids? If you wouldn't have seen this photo for yourself and identify it as an American soldier you would have thought this was the ghettos of 1930's Germany. It is high time we provide PSP's for all of Iraq."

Off camera Capt. Miller: That's not a proper gripe. We should be saying. Thank you to Congress for sending such useful equipment to improve our off-duty lives. It may even serve a useful purpose in handing out toys to kids who now have electric power for the first time in their lives courtesy of good old US knowhow.

Off duty Carpazo: Yeah, see. That's why I love Capt. Miller.
