Countdown: Jim Webb on Lieberman/Kyl, Rush Limbaugh and the Spanish Downing Street Revelations

Nicole Belle, Crooks and Liars: It’s dizzying to try to keep up with all the plates that the Right Wing are spinning. On Thursday’s Countdown, Keith Olbermann and Sen. Jim Webb try to put it all in perspective. (Click the pic for the vid.)

Webb: (On the Spanish “Downing Street” memos) There’s no real surprise there. If you look back at where the situation was in ‘02, I and General Tony Zinni and other people were saying that Iraq probably would have been sixth highest in terms of the threats to the United States. In fact, I wrote a piece in the Washington Post five years ago this month, basically saying “Do you really want to be in Iraq for the next 30 years?” and that these people have no exit strategy because they don’t intend to leave.
LSB: Webb seems to be the Senator many of us wish we had (I've got that jackass Cornyn and lead-by-the-nose Kay Bailey), and I believe if we had more Senators with the balls he's shown in Congress there would be less terrorism coming from the White House.
