On Monday's "The Nightly Show," Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore made the case that NBC anchor Brian Williams's confusion over his war reporting is a perfect metaphor for Americans' understanding of our role in the Middle East.

"We just kept fighting," Wilmore said. "I don't know we won. I mean, I know we kinda left, we're still kinda hanging out there. It's like when you graduate from high school and you still go to the dances and it's really awkward."
