C&L: Olbermann demonstrates Bush's latest lie

Crooks and Liars has some video from last night's Countdown: "Today in his speech in Cleveland:

Bush: 'First-just if I might correct a misperception, I don't think we ever said, at least I know I didn't say that there was a direct connection between September 11th and Saddam Hussein.'

In days gone by-SOTU-three years ago:

Bush: 'Saddam Hussein aids and protects terrorists, including members of al-Qaeda.'

Now-anyone listening and watching his speech back then would make that connection easily enough since al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11-don't you think? Keith analyzes it very nicely.

Olbermann: 'Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda in the same sentence separated by seven words. Sept. 11th and Saddam Hussein -two sentences later, separated by six words. In a moment Craig Crawford joins me to discuss the fundamental remaining question. Who does the President think he's F'n kidding?"
