On Countdown tonight, Keith compared the stark differences between what the administration was saying publicly and privately about Iraq in the lead up to the midterm elections. After Rumsfelds November 6 internal memo was made public by the New York Times last weekend, David Gregory pressed Tony Snow on the hypocrisy of the "cut and run" rhetoric when, at the same time, Secretary Rumsfeld was contemplating the very same options.


Q Isn't it striking that this administration was accusing the likes of John Murtha and other Democrats who suggested course correction, including phased withdrawal, of cutting and running —
