The folks at Cinnabon have been in touch to tell us: They have no outlets in Afghanistan! My first reaction was: Too bad for our folks in uniform who are fans of Cinnabon. They saw the item we ran on the air this week (we are covering it in greater depth tonight, when John Yang reports on the fast food ban at U.S. bases), which contained a mention of their company, and contacted us to clarify. I can say this: I'm an occasional customer (the aroma in the airport usually breaks me down—to say nothing of the aroma in Iraq, when you really miss American fast food), and meant no harm by the mention.
And congrats to the UConn women on taking it all in the NCAA. I neglected to say that last night as well.
We hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
