Katie to Iraq! CBS Looking for a Long-Term Deal?

In a search for ratings, CBS has announced that Katie Couric will travel to Iraq in September.

I wonder if it has occurred to Ms. Couric that she may be worth far more to CBS if her trip is, hmm, troubled? After all, with a successful conclusion to her travels the ratings will only sink again. On the other hand, should she become a "guest" of one of the fighting factions that unfortunate circumstance would could be milked for months.

Katie needs to ask herself if the suits at CBS ever saw the 1986 film Ruthless People with Danny DeVito and Bette Midler, where the husband has no interest in the return of his kidnapped wife as life is sweeter without her.
Dan Rather used to know some pretty unscrupulous folks over there. Perhaps he'd make the call?

We might all lose interest in her return rather rapidly.
