Daisy's getting wise?

This, via Atrios, is quite interesting. Seems Jessica Simpson is concerned because some of the more bleak footage of her trip to Iraq (with hubby Nick Lachey) was excised from her ABC special:

The pop singers-turned-reality TV couple travelled to the war-torn nation to visit US troops as part of a recent ABC TV variety special, and they were both left shellshocked by what they saw.

But all the controversial moments and harrowing footage of the trip didn't appear in the fun-filled TV show.

Simpson says, "It was unbelievable. They didn't show a lot of what really went on with the enemy attacks and the shelling. There was so much stuff that went on and somehow the tapes got mysteriously misplaced."

"Somehow." Yeah. Wonder how that happened. Kudos to Simpson for speaking out about it, at any rate. If even she's getting the picture, can Kansas be far behind?
