Bush on MTP 

David Korn Corn of The Nation has questions Russert should ask the President. My favorite:
In October 2002, during a speech in Cincinnati, you said that Saddam Hussein had a "massive stockpile" of biological weapons. But the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq did not report there was any "massive stockpile" of bioweapons in Iraq. And this past Thursday, CIA director, George Tenet said, "We said we had no specific information on the types or quantities of [biological] weapons, agent, or stockpiles at Baghdad's disposal." So if the CIA did not say there was a "massive stockpile" of biological weapons in Iraq, what was your basis for asserting a stockpile existed? Did you know something the CIA did not? Did you overstate the intelligence?
This is my favorite because it is most in-tune with Russert's style. The other ones are really just as good, but aren't so Russert-esque.

Brad DeLong (who's site should be everyday reading, for everyone--the guy has officially become on of my heroes) also has questions.

So does Joe Conason, although, truth be told, these aren't that good. But definitely read Korn's and DeLong's. And for God's sake, read everything you can on DeLong's site.
