I kid you not...

This is the latest headline for the CNN story on Bush's recent Iraq speech:

Bush: Iraqi democracy making progress; estimates 30,000 Iraqis killed

Well, good to know they're making progress.

You couldn't make this stuff up.


Of course reading the article is even better:

Another question came from a woman who asked why the Bush administration continues to link the September 11 terrorist attacks with the decision to invade Iraq.
Bush, who said in his opening remarks that the war on terror started that day in 2001, responded, "9/11 changed my look on foreign policy. I mean, it said that oceans no longer protect us; that we can't take threats for granted; that if we see a threat, we've got to deal with it."
The president said that Saddam Hussein was a threat that was "accentuated by 9/11."

That's right. The President answered a question about why his administration continues to link Iraq to 9/11 by explaining the link betwen Iraq and 9/11. That's just priceless.

Someone must be paying attention, they've now changed the headline.

Oh well. It was funny while it lasted!
