Olbermann to Bush: 'A Special Comment About Lying' [VIDEO]

Some readers -- and writers -- have questioned the focus on Foley over the past week.

  • Yesterday at a fundraiser for an Arizona congressman, Mr. Bush claimed, quote, "177 of the opposition party said, 'You know, we don't think we ought to be listening to the conversations of terrorists.'"
