The Wrong Abu

The leader of the free world can’t keep terrorists’ names straight. At a campaign stop in New Hampshire, he attributed the murder of Leon Klinghoffer during the Achile Lauro hijacking to Abu Nidal. Trouble is, it wasn’t Abu Nidal, it was Abu Abbas who was responsible. Bush made the same mistake 10 times before as the Boston Globe reports. (Memo to Rove: The cue cards aren’t working anymore.)
Elsewhere, a discombobulated Rumsfeld seems to have worked so hard at representing Saddam as a partner with Bin Laden that now he can’t even keep the two straight. At a speech this past Friday he mixed up Saddam and bin Laden twice.

Saddam Hussein, if he’s alive, is spending a whale of a lot of time trying to not get caught. And we’ve not seen him on a video since 2001.
