Newsweek Entertainment - MSNBC.com: "Feb. 13, 2006 issue - We live in a dangerous world. Fortunately, we've got Stephen Colbert fighting on our side. Colbert defends America when lesser men cut and run. Got a problem with White House wiretapping? He doesn't. 'This is a war against secret enemies that may not end,' Colbert has told the world. 'Don't we need secret powers that have no limit?' Doubts about Iraq? 'Doesn't taking out Saddam feel right?' he asks. When Colbert criticizes something like the Abu Ghraib Prison scandal, it's not the policy he dislikes%u2014it's the missed opportunity. 'It's time to bring torture back to this side of the pond and put Americans back to work,' he says. The biggest threat facing America now, Colbert says, isn't Iraq or Al Qaeda, or even Simon Cowell. It's the Associated Press."
