On today's show, we wrestled with the latest viral video sensation, a clip depicting an American service member throwing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq.

Virginia Heffernan of the New York Times says there's no way to know if the clip is real. But she notes that clips of human suffering from the war haven't had nearly the kind of play given to this video.

"The one that seems to show footage of a dog is the one we're all talking about," she says.

Your turn's in the comments. Can't wait to see what the BPP crowd says about it.
