Olbermann Loses It, RE: Bush Lying to the Troops That He’ll Bring Them Home

Crooks and Liars ยป Countdown Special Comment: You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir.:

OK, here’s the story: Bush appears in a surprise visit to Iraq and tells the soldiers and everyone else he just might maybe be reducing forces there soon.

Meanwhile, a quote comes out from an authorized biography of the president, where he says “I’m playing for October or November… to get us in a position where the presidential candidates, will be comfortable about sustaining a presence” — far from reducing our presence, he’s all about making sure it’s sustained even after his departure, by the next president.

Olbermann gets as angry as I’ve ever seen him about this, and that’s saying something.
