REPORT," EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOININGUS!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOLKS!

IT IS GOOD TO KNOW THAT THECOLBERT NATION IS STANDING

STRONG NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENSALL AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE,

FOLKS, FOR MONTHS, THE WORLD HASBEEN SHOCKED BY THE BRUTAL

TERRORIST GROUP I.S.I.S.

DON'T BE FOOLED JUST BECAUSETHEY HAVE THE SAME NAME YOUR

LONELY AUNT GAVE HER CAT.

(LAUGHTER)THESE GUYS ARE PURE EVIL.

TV, SCARE ME TILL IT'S BROWNDOWNTOWN!

>> I.S.I.S. IS BRUTAL?

THEY ARE ANIMALS --BEHEADINGS, CRUCIFIXIONS, MASS

EXECUTIONS OR LIVE BURIALS,ENSLAVEMENT OF WOMEN.

THEY CERTAINLY AREN'T THE J.V.

TEAM OF AL QUAIDA.

THEY'RE THE GREEN BAY PACKERS.

>> Stephen: YES, THEY'RE THEGREEN BAY PACKERS, BUT WITH

BEHEADINGS.

SO SLIGHTLY LESS HEAD TRAUMATHAN the N.F.L.

AND YES --(APPLAUSE)

-- YES, THE U.S. DID HITI.S.I.S. WITH AIRSTRIKES IN

IRAQ.

BUT THAT JUST DROVE THEM BACKINTO SYRIA, WHERE, LAST WEEK

THEY CAPTURED A MAJOR AIR BASE.

ALTHOUGH, I DON'T KNOW WHAT GOODTHAT WILL DO, SINCE I'M GUESSING

THEY'RE ALL ON THE "NO FLY"LIST.

(LAUGHTER)THINK, GUYS!

SO WHO EXACTLY IS "IS-IS?

(LAUGHTER)ACCORDING TO THE "THE NEW YORK

TIMES," THE GROUP HAS "THE GROUPHAS QUIETLY BUILT AN EFFECTIVE

MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE OF MOSTLYMIDDLE MIDDLE-AGED IRAQIS.

AND THEIR LEADER, ABU BAKRAL-BAGHDADI, HAS BEEN DESCRIBED

AS "A BALDING, MIDDLE AGED MAN."

(LAUGHTER)IN OTHER WORDS, THEY'RE

40-SOMETHINGS HAVING A MID-LIFEISIS.

(LAUGHTER)>> Stephen: YOU KNOW HOW IT

IS! WE'VE ALL SEEN IT.

YOU KNOW HOW IT IS, YOU SEE YOURYOUTH SLIPPING AWAY, SO YOU GO

OUT AND GET AN EXOTIC NEW SPORTSTANK, AND CHEAT ON YOUR WIFE

WITH ONE OF YOUR OTHER WIVES.

AND YOU TRY TO DIET, BUT YOUSTILL CAN'T FIT INTO YOUR HIGH

SCHOOL SUICIDE VEST.

WORST OF ALL, ISIS HAS NOWATTRACTED THE MOST VIOLENT,

HEAVILY-ARMED PEOPLE ON EARTH --AMERICANS.

>> NEW DETAILS EMERGING ABOUTAMERICAN JIHADIST DOUGLAS

McCAIN.

HE WASN'T THE ONLY TERRORIST TOCOME FROM ROBBINSDALE COOPERS

HIGH SCHOOL IN MINNESOTA.

WE NOW KNOW TROY CASTAGAR WHOWENT OVERSEAS TO FIGHT IN AN

AL QUAIDA GROUP WITH McCAIN'SCLASSMATE.

THERE COULD BE A THIRD TERRORISTFROM ROBBINSDALE COOPERS HIGH

SCHOOL THIS GUNMEN IS WEARING ASHIRT SAYING COOPER HAWKS,

THE SAME AS THE HIGH SCHOOLMASCOT.

>> Stephen: THE COOPER HAWKS!

THAT TEAM LEAVES IT "ALL" OUT ONTHE FIELD.

ESPECIALLY AFTER A DRONE STRIKE.

THEIR PROM THEME THIS YEAR WASISRAEL UNDER THE SEA.

(LAUGHTER)AND WHILE ISIS IS A RELATIVELY

NEW TERROR GROUP, THIS CONFLICTHAS ITS ROOTS IN THE

SEVENTH-CENTURY SUNNI-SHIITESPLIT, WITH SUNNI'S FOLLOWING

MUHAMMED'S FATHER-IN-LAW ABUBAKR, WHILE SHIITES FOLLOW

MUHAMMED'S SON-IN-LAW ALI.

SO, IN OTHER WORDS, THIS ISOBAMA'S FAULT.

>> THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF ISDERELICT IN HIS DUTIES TO GET

AHEAD OF THIS PROBLEM ANDPROTECT THE HOMELAND.

>> WE HAVE A RUDDERLESSSITUATION IN A DANGEROUS WORLD.

EVERYONE IS HOLDING THEIRBREATH.

FOR THE PRESIDENT NOT TO ACTPOLITICALLY, ACT LIKE THE MAN OF

THE HOUSE AND PROTECT YOURFAMILY THE UNITED STATES HERE

BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

>> Stephen: YEAH, ACT LIKE AMAN!

STEP UP.

TAKE WHAT YOU WANT.

YES, YOU WANTED TO BOMB SYRIALAST YEAR AND WE SAID NO, BUT

SOMETIMES NO MEANS YES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THIS GUY NEEDS A HARD DOSE OF

REALITY.

RIGHT, WOMAN WHO LIVES IN AWORLD OF IMAGINATION?

>> CAN I MAKE A SPECIAL REQUESTIN THE MAGIC LAND?

WE GET NETANYAHU, PUTIN IN FOR48 HOURS, HEAD OF THE UNITED

STATES, I DON'T KNOW, JUST WANTSOMEBODY TO GET IN HERE AND GET

IT DONE RIGHT:>> Stephen: YES!

PUTIN OR NETANYAHU, OR BETTERYET, COMBINE THEM INTO PRESIDENT

NETAN-PUT-HU!

SHIRTLESS, BUT WITH NIPPLEYARMULKES.

(LAUGHTER)(APPLAUSE)

COME IN HANDY IF YOU'RE RUNNINGA MARATHON OR SOMETHING.

BUT AS LONG AS WE'RE MAKING(BLEEP) UP, AS A CONSERVATIVE,

MY ALLEGIANCE IS WITH AN EVENGREATER IMAGINARY LEADER:

RONALD REAGAN.

'HE'S' THE ONE WE SHOULD BEPRETENDING IS STOPPING THIS

CRISIS.

AND NEWT GINGRICH AGREESYESTERDAY, NEWT POSTED A LENGTHY

FAKE SPEECH HE IMAGINES REAGANWOULD GIVE IF HE WERE STILL

AROUND.

AND IT IS EXACTLY WHAT REAGANWOULD SAY IF HE WERE STILL

ALIVE, AND SOMEHOW STILLPRESIDENT SERVING A NINTH TERM

AT THE AGE OF 103.

QUOTH REAGAN, QUOTH NEWT:"DEFEATING TERRORISTS AND

BLACKMAILERS IS NOTHING NEW INAMERICAN HISTORY.

JEFFERSON HATED WAR AND LOVEDPEACE.

HE ALSO UNDERSTOOD THAT THEREWERE TIMES WHEN VICIOUS

OPPONENTS GIVE PEACE-LOVINGPEOPLE NO CHOICE BUT TO ENGAGE

IN JUST WAR."

AND IF NEWT KNOWS EXACTLY HOWJEFFERSON FELT, I'M SURE HE WILL

ALSO WRITE A FICTIONAL SPEECHTHAT JEFFERSON WOULD HAVE GIVEN

IN 1984, WHEN REAGAN DECIDED TOGET OUR MARINES THE HELL OUT OF

LEBANON.

FAKE JEFFERSON WOULD BE JUST ASDISAPPOINTED IN REAL REAGAN AS

FAKE REAGAN IS IN REAL OBAMA.

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT NEWTWILL IMAGINE FAKE OBAMA WILL ONE

DAY SAY ABOUT THE MIDEAST POLICYOF PRESIDENT BLUE IVY.

(APPLAUSE)(LAUGHTER)

NATION, I, TOO, CAN IMAGINE OURWAY TO A BETTER WORLD BECAUSE,

I, LIKE NEWT GINGRICH, BELIEVEWE CAN DEFEAT ISIS WITH THE

POWER OF MAKE-BELIEVE.

REMEMBER, IN 1938, THE RADIOBROADCAST OF WAR OF THE WORLDS

MANAGED TO CONVINCE THOUSANDS OFAMERICANS THAT ALIENS WERE

ATTACKING.

WE CAN DO THE SAME THING TO ISISAND CONVINCE THEM THAT REAGAN IS

BACK IN CHARGE.

(LIKE OLD TIMEY ANNOUNCER...)WE INTERRUPT THIS BROADCAST OF

THE COLBERT REPORT TO BRING YOUA SPECIAL BULLETIN FROM THE

INTERNATIONAL RADIO NEWS.

AT TEN MINUTES AFTER 11:00,EASTERN TIME, A HUGE FLAMING

OBJECT FELL ON A FARM IN THENEIGHBORHOOD OF GROVERS MILL,

NEW JERSEY.

OBSERVERS REPORTED THAT IT WAS,IN FACT, RONALD REAGAN.

PRESIDENT REAGAN IMMEDIATELYMOUNTED A NEARBY STALLION AND

BEGAN RIDING TOWARD THE WHITEHOUSE.

(HORSE-GALLOPING NOISE)HE THEN DISMOUNTED, WALKING OVER

SOME DRY LEAVES.

(CRUNCHES)IN A THUNDERSTORM.

(METAL SHEET)BEFORE GETTING ON A FREIGHTTRAIN.

(TRAIN EFFECT)AND THEN REAGAN THREW OPEN THE

DOORS TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

(DOOR OPENING SOUND)STRODE TO THE PODIUM.

(SHOES)AND SAID --

MWAH, SEE?

I'M IN CHARGE AROUND HERE, SEE?

LISTEN UP, ISIS, AMSCRA, WHYDONCHA?

OR I'LL GIVE YA THE BUSINESS!

TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!

DADDY WANTS SOME JELLYBEANS!

MWAH!

(LAUGHTER)GIVE DADDY A KISS, NANCY!

WITH ISIS DEFEATED, REAGANSTEPPED DOWN FROM THE PODIUM AND

WALKED OFF INTO THE SETTING SUN,JOINED BY PETER AND A FRIENDLY

DUCK.

(CLARINET SONG FROM PETER ANDTHE WOLF)

TAKE THAT, ISIS!

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

YOU KNOW, FOLKS, I DON'T THINKIT COMES TO A SURPRISE THAT I

ENJOY A LIBATION FROM TIME TOTIME.

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A STIFFDRINK FOR RELAXING AT THE END OF

A STRESSFUL DAY, OR TO TAKE THEEDGE OFF WHILE DRIVING YOUR CAR

THROUGH A CROWDED CITY PARK.

BUT LET'S FACE IT -- DRINKINGCAN BE COMPLICATED.

WHERE'S THE BOTTLE OPENER BOTTLEOPENER?

WHICH GLASS DO I USE?

WHO IS THAT GUY ON TRISH'SFACEBOOK PAGE?

IS THAT DANNY FROM WORK?!

WHAT HAPPENED TO US, TRISH?WE WERE GONNA GO CAMPING.

I BOUGHT A CANOE.

FORTUNATELY, THERE'S A NEWDEVICE THAT TAKES ALL THE

GUESSWORK OUT OF GETTINGBOOZEJUICE INTO YOUR MOUTH-HOLE.

JIM?

WHAT IF THERE WAS A BRAND NEWWAY TO ENJOY YOUR ALCHOLIC

BEVERAGES THAT WILL GET THEPARTY STARTED FASTER AND WON'T

SLOW YOU DOWN.

INTRODUCTING VAPSHOT VAPORIZEDSPIRITS.

NOW YOU CAN ENJOY VAPORIZEDALCOHOL ANY TIME AT HOME OR ONE

OF YOUR AWESOME PARTIES.

VAPSHOT MINI IS DESIGNED TOVAPORIZE ALCOHOL THAT YOU CAN

INHALE WITH A STRAW.

IT HITS YOU INSTANTLY ANDKICKSTARTS YOUR BUZZ.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)VAPORIZED ALCOHOL!

FINALLY, SOMETHING THAT COMBINESTHE ELEGANCE OF DRINKING WITH

THE CONVENIENCE OF HUFFINGPAINT.

BEST PART IS, IT'S SO EASY TOUSE, ANY MINOR COULD DO IT.

JUST INVITE OVER YOUR FAVORITEAUNT, THE ONE WHO BUYS

CHARDONNAY IN BULK.

HAVE HER FILL IT WITH VODKA,REPLACE THE COVER, INSERT THE

INJECTOR INTO THE BOTTLE, PRESSTHE BUTTON.

COUNT TO 20, TWIST THE TOP ANDPRESTO-MISTO!

BOOM!

YOU ARE READY TO INHALE YOUR WAYTO A FREE AMBULANCE RIDE.

(LAUGHTER)AND PARENTS, YOU CAN REST

ASSURED - THE VAPSHOT MINI ISPERFECTLY SAFE, AS PROVEN BY A

CHART.

>> VAPSHOT IS THE ONLYLABORATORY PRODUCT FOR

VAPORIZING ALCOHOL USINGINFORMATION PUBLISHED BY OSHA,

ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED.

AGENCIES FOR SAFETY.

VAPSHOT IS WELL WITHIN THEACCEPTABLE LEVELS FOR INHALING

ETHYL ALCOHOL.

>> Stephen: YES!

(APPLAUSE)LOOK AT THAT!

(LAUGHTER)YES.

ACCORDING TO THIS FACTORY AIRPOLLUTANT GRAPH, VAPSHOT WILL

HAVE YOU PARTYING --(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)VAPSHOT WILL HAVE YOU PARTYING

NEARLY AS HARD AS THE CLEANINGCREW AT A POORLY VENTILATED

ACETONE PLANT.

(LAUGHTER)BUT IF ANYTHING, THE SQUARES AT

THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY ANDHEALTH ADMINISTRATION ARE

PLAYING IT TOO SAFE.

LOOK AT THAT GAP -- OR AS I CALLIT, THE "BRAIN CELL BERMUDA

TRIANGLE."

(LAUGHTER)THERE'S SO MUCH MORE FUN YOU

COULD PROBABLY NON-FATALLY HAVE.

JUST IGNORE THE VERY BEGINNINGOF THE CHART WHERE VAPSHOT IS

"OUTSIDE" THE SAFETY ZONE.

NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

ONLY THE FIRST VAPSHOT WILLKILL YOU, BUT AFTER THAT, YOU'RE

IN THE CLEAR!

(LAUGHTER)(APPLAUSE)

OF COURSE, WHEN WE FACT-CHECKEDTHAT CHART, OSHA TOLD US THEY

"DON'T KNOW WHAT VAPSHOT ISBASING THEIR INFORMATION ON."

VAPSHOT MAY HAVE FAKED THEIRCHART?

THAT IS VERY SOBERING.

BUT NOT FOR LONG.

(LAUGHTER)THE IMPORTANT THING IS, NO

MATTER HOW DANGEROUS IT ISN'T,VAPSHOT GETS YOU CRUNKED FAST!

ACCORDING TO VAPSHOT'S WEBSITE.

"NORMALLY WHEN YOU TAKE A DRINK,IT HAS TO GO INTO YOUR MOUTH,

DOWN YOUR THROAT, INTO.

YOUR STOMACH, THEN INTESTINESAND FINALLY INTO YOUR

BLOODSTREAM TO YOUR LUNGS ANDBRAIN.

THAT TAKES A LONG TIME AND AWHOLE LOT MORE ALCOHOL TO HAVE

THE SAME EFFECT."

"VAPSHOT INTRODUCES THE ALCOHOLDIRECTLY INTO THE BLOOD STREAM

THROUGH THE LUNGS WHICH IS VERYEFFICIENT."

(LAUGHTER)YES!

EFFICIENT!

SO YOU CAN BE THE FIRST AT THEPARTY TO BE PASSED OUT WITH A

PENIS DRAWN ON YOUR FACE!

(APPLAUSE)(LAUGHTER)

BUT, FOLKS, DON'T TAKE MY WORDFOR IT.

LISTEN TO SOMEONE WHO VAPESHOTDIDN'T CONSULT IN.

THEIR COMMERCIAL:AN ACTUAL DOCTOR.

>> THE NORMAL SENSATION WHEN YOUDRINK AND YOU GET-- YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU'RE MORE DRUNK IS TOVOMIT.

IT'S YOUR BODY'S WAY OFEXPELLING ALCOHOL.

HOWEVER, WHEN YOU INHALEALCOHOL, YOUR BRAIN HAS NO WAY

OF EXPELLING IT.

>> SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT PRAYINGTO THE PORCELAIN GOD.

WITH VAPSHOT, YOU JUST MIGHTGET TO MEET THE REAL THING.

(LAUGHTER)AND AT ONLY $899, WHAT ARE YOU

WAITING FOR?

ORDER YOUR VAPSHOT TODAY!

VAPESHOT: BECAUSE LUNGS DON'TVOMIT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY!

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS A FRENCHPHOTOGRAPHER FAMOUS FOR HIS

PORTRAITS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE.

THAT IS GROUNDBREAKING -- IT'SLIKE A SELFIE OF SOMEONE ELSE!

PLEASE WELCOME J.R.!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)♪♪

>> Stephen: J.R., THANK YOUFOR COMING ON!

SIT DOWN!

NOW, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MAYNOT KNOW, I DID NOT KNOW BEFORE

I WAS INTRODUCED TO YOU, YOU AREA SEMI-ANONYMOUS FRENCH STREET

ARTISTS, RIGHT?

>> RIGHT, WE'LL SAY THAT.

>> Stephen: YOU'VE INSTALLEDWORK IN PARIS, THE MIDDLE EAST

AND THE LARGEST ILLEGALPHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION ALSO THE

WINNER OF THE 2011 TED PRIZE.

WHEN YOU SAY SEMIANONYMOUS,BECAUSE YOU LET PEOPLE SEE YOU

BUT YOU DON'T WANT TO SAY YOURNAME OR LET PEOPLE KNOW WHO YOU

ARE?

>> I STARTED FROM GRAFFITI, SOMOST OF WHAT I DID WAS NOT

REALLY LEGAL(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: SO ARE YOU A"CRIMINAL"?

>> DEPENDING ON WHICH COUNTRYYOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

>> Stephen: HOW ABOUT THEUNITED STATES?

>> THE UNITED STATES HAS BEENNICE TO ME, FOR NOW.

>> Stephen: YOU DO LIKE TOHIDE YOUR IDENTITY?

>> LET'S SAY WHEN YOU DRAW APORTRAIT ON THE WALL IN CHINA,

YOU BETTER NOT PUT YOUR NAME ONTHE WALL.

>> Stephen: WE WILL NOT REVIEWYOUR TRUE NAME AND HAVE

DISGUISED YOUR VOICE WITH THATOUTRAGEOUS ACCENT

(LAUGHTER)(APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: LET'S EXPLAIN TO THEPEOPLE SOME OF THE ART YOU DO.

JIM, LET'S SEE IF ART HERE.

THIS IS AN INSTALLATION YOU DIDIN RIO DE JANEIRO?

>> YES.

>> Stephen: WHAT'S BEING DONEHERE?

>> THIS IS IN A PROVINCE IN RIO,AND THOSE ARE FACES AND EYES OF

WOMEN FROM THE COMMUNITY, THATARE THE PILLARS OF THEIR

COMMUNITY, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK INTHE MIDDLE, YOU ONLY SEE

VIOLENCE.

>> Stephen: VERY DANGEROUS.

IT IS, BUT ABOUT 80% OF THEPOPULATION ARE HAVING A NORMAL

LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT.

THIS IS BRAZIL.

>> Stephen: ALL THESE WOMEN'SFACES. WHY WOMEN?

YOU KNOW, BECAUSE WHEN I WASLOOKING AT TV, ALL I WAS SEEING

WAS MEN WITH GUNS AND DRUGS,AND WHEN I WENT THERE, I

ACTUALLY SAW WOMEN CARRYINGTHEIR COMMUNITY, CARRYING THEIR

CHILDREN.

>> Stephen: THESE ARE ORDINARYPEOPLE

(APPLAUSE)WHY NOT -- THESE ARE ORDINARY

PEOPLE.

WHY NOT TAKE PICTURES OF FAMOUSPEOPLE OR CELEBRITIES?

(LAUGHTER)BECAUSE, A, WE KNOW HOW TO GET

PHOTOGRAPHED AND, B, PEOPLE LOVELOOKING AT US.

EVEN SHAKESPEARE WROTE ABOUTKINGS AND QUEENS.

WHY MAKE YOUR ART ABOUT ORDINARYFOLKS THAT NOBODY LOOKS AT?

>> WHEN I WENT THERE FIRST, IDIDN'T SEE YOU.

>> Stephen: YOU DIDN'T INVITEME

(LAUGHTER)HERE'S ANOTHER ONE YOU DID, THIS

IS BETWEEN THE WEST BANK ANDISRAEL.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: THESE AREPHOTOGRAPHS OF ISRAELIS AND

PALESTINIANS DOING THE EXACTSAME JOB.

SO THESE GUYS MIGHT HAVE THESAME JOB ON EITHER SIDE OF THE

WALL.

>> EXACTLY.

>> Stephen: WHAT'S YOUR POINT?

(LAUGHTER)>> SO, BASICALLY, IMAGINE I TAKE

A STEPHEN COLBERT IN PALESTINEAND IN ISRAEL, BOTH ARE DOING

THE SAME JOB -->> Stephen: TWO OF ME.

SOUNDS GOOD SO FAR

ONE NEXT TO EACH OTHER. I PUTTHEM IN THE STREET.

I SAY, WHO IS WHO?

AND MOST OF THE TIME PEOPLECANNOT RECOGNIZE WHO IS THE

ISRAELI AND WHO IS THEPALESTINIAN.

>> Stephen: YOU TELL ME WHATSIDE THEY'RE ON, I'LL TELL YOU

WHO'S RIGHT(LAUGHTER)

ARE YOU SAYING THAT YOU CANJUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER?

>> NOT EXACTLY.

I THINK I'M SAYING THAT THEENEMY ARE NOT NECESSARILY WHO WE

THINK THEY ARE.

THESE PEOPLE HAVE CRAZY PICTURESAND WHEN YOU PLACE IT RIGHT IN

FRONT OF THEIR FACE, THERE'S NOTTHAT MUCH DIFFERENCE.

SO AN ISRAELI AND PALESTINIANSIN DIFFERENT PLACES, IT'S ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL.

BUT PEOPLE HELP YOU TO DO IT

>> Stephen: SO PEOPLE LIKE THIS?

FIRST, I DIDN'T GET KILLED, ICAME BACK ALIVE

PEOPLE, WHEN I CAME BACK HERE,THEY TOLD ME, YOU'RE SO BRAVE

PEOPLE DIDN'T SHOOT YOU

>> Stephen: DID THEY TOUCH YOUTHE WHOLE TIME YOU TALKED?

THE FUNNY THING, STEPHEN, IS ITWAS THE EASIEST [BLEEP] THING

EVER. I EVEN GOT SUN BURNED. IWENT ON HOLIDAY, CAME BACK.

I SAID I'M NOT THE HERO, THEPEOPLE, THEY'RE THE ONE WITH

THEIR FACE ON THE WALL WHILE I'MHERE HAVING A DRINK WITH YOU.

>> Stephen: HERE'S THE PROBLEM.YOU WANT TO HUMANIZE THE PEOPLE

WHO ARE BEING AFFECTED BY WAR,IN THIS CASE, OR THESE ARE SOME

PEOPLE -- GO TO THE NEXT ONE,JIM -- THESE ARE PEOPLE INSPIRED

BY YOU AND APPROVED BY YOU INPAKISTAN WHO PUT UP THE FACE OF

A LITTLE GIRL, A GIANT PORTRAITTHEY MADE IN A FIELD TO SHOW

DRONE OPERATORS THAT PEOPLE LIVE HERE -- TO SHOW THEM WHO

LIVES HERE? BECAUSE THIS IS ANAREA THAT GETS DRONED BY

THE U.S., RIGHT?

EXACTLY, I THINK THE BEAUTY OFTHAT PROJECT IS FIRST,

I WENT TO PAKISTAN AND I NEVERHAD DRONES FLYING OVER MY HEAD.

ALL I KNOW IS I WAS THE GUYFLYING THE DRONE, IF I CAN'T SEE

THE FACES OF THE PEOPLE I'MFLYING ABOVE, I CAN'T REALIZE

THE DAMAGE I'M DOING. THEYPRINTED IT THEMSELVES.

LET ME FINISH, STEPHEN.

>> Stephen: WHY CAN'T I START?

YOU HAVE TO DO IT ONLY IF IT'SART AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DID AND

PRINTED IT THEMSELVES.

AND IT'S BEEN PRINTED BYHUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD AND THE MEDIA.

>> Stephen: SEEMS WHAT YOU'RESAYING HERE IS THAT I HAVE TO

CONSIDER EVERY PERSON AS HUMAN.

(LAUGHTER)THAT I CAN'T JUST THINK OF

PEOPLE AS PART OF A POPULATIONOR A STATISTIC.

SO THERE'S NOBODY I CAN'TACCIDENTALLY KILL IN A WAR AND

STILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT THAT WAR.

>> NO.

>> Stephen: THAT'S WHATYOU'RE SAYING

YOU 'RE SAYING ANYBODY WHODIES IN A WAR THAT'S JUSTIFIED,

I HAVE TO GRIEVE OVER?

>>NO, I'M JUST SAYING-->> Stephen: OH I DON'T HAVE TO?

>>NO THE QUESTION THAT'SRAISED IS, THE FACT THAT

IT WENT SO FAR AND WE'RE HERETALKING ABOUT THIS, AS AN ARTIST

YOU ASK QUESTIONS, YOU DON'TGIVE THE ANSWERS SO I UNDERSTAND

WHY YOU'RE CONFLICTED HERE.

>> Stephen: THAT'S THEDIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OF

US. YOU ASK QUESTIONS THAT DON'TGIVE ANSWERS.

I DON'T WANT ANY QUESTIONS, I'LLTELL YOU THE ANSWER.

ARTIST, PUNDIT.

>> EXACTLY.

>> Stephen: WE GO WELLTOGETHER.

J.R., EVERYBODY!

>> Stephen: THAT'S IT FOR "THEREPORT," EVERYBODY!

GOOD NIGHT!
