ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Keith Olbermann - Liar or Fool?

Last night, Keith Olbermann demonstrated that he is either a liar or a fool. Check the video:

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he's just a fool - not intentionally lying to the hundreds of thousands of moonbats that tune into him nightly.

Oh, and here's the relevant text of the LA Times story:

For all the aggressive rhetoric, however, the Bush administration has provided scant evidence to support these claims. Nor have reporters traveling with U.S. troops seen extensive signs of Iranian involvement. During a recent sweep through a stronghold of Sunni insurgents here, a single Iranian machine gun turned up among dozens of arms caches U.S. troops uncovered.
If you didn't catch it, answer this question. Where would you be most likely to find Iranian weapons and expertise, in Sunni or Shia areas of Iraq?


***** ARC: Brian adds ******

I've got an idea! We can send Joe Wilson to Tehran to sip abdugh and ask about Iranian arm shipments. I'm sure he'll find that it's all a bunch of hogwash, and Bush Lied!TM in order to send us in a war with Iran.

I notice that Keith repeats the Wilson lie about the 16 words:
Those 16 words in which Mr. Bush had claimed in 2003's address that Iraq had tried to secure weapons grade uranium from Niger, ultimately proving[sic] to be false.

Let's go back to the 2003 State of the Union speech. The "16 words" from that speech were as follows:
The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

To anyone with that isn't a liar or a fool, those two statements are not synonymous. Uranium is not "weapons grade" uranium. Africa is not Niger. And there has been no proof (other than Wilson's op-ed) that Iraq didn't try and obtain Uranium from Niger. [Added link to daily howler showing the text of the NIE disputing this charge from Olberman back in April]

I expect the propoganda on behalf of Tehran--and lets be honest, thats EXACTLY what is being done here--just to score political points against Bush will continue among left wing circles. Much to the delight of President Tom.
