Olbermann on Bush and the NIE

The fallout continues over Monday's publication of the National Intelligence Estimate that showed Iran had suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Tonight on MSNBC's Countdown, Keith Olbermann offered a special commentary on the growing controversy. President Bush has said that he only received the final version of the NIE last Wednesday, though the White House has also admitted a draft version of the report was presented to him in August. Olbermann's special commentary makes the point that during that time the administration continued to stress the threat of Iran building a nuclear bomb, leading Keith to assume the President was either lying about the Iranian threat, or is hopelessly ill-informed about matters within his own administration.
