Stephen Colbert has deployed to Iraq for a USO tour entitled "Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando." He will perform his shows in front of the troops for the next week, according to Comedy Central.
While there, Colbert will host Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq Barham Saleh and General Ray Odierno, commander of the Multi-National Forces in Iraq, among others. The show is taking place at an undisclosed military base in conjunction with the USO, and promises to boast "shout outs from notable figures in society."
We can only assume one of these "notable figures" will be Sarah "I Ruined The Surprise" Palin, who recently tweeted:
"Getting ready to tape shout-out for our awesome US troops serving overseas! Will be on 'Colbert Report' next month, broadcast from Iraq..."
Colbert prepared the following video to reveal his super secret plans and ensure no one would know about them. Proceeds from sales of his Iraq shows on iTunes will go to benefit the USO.
