    and you don't even need the internet to catch him.
    I remember watching a news conference in the run-up to the Iraq war, during which he cited a page number from the September 11th Commission Report as corroboration for what he was saying about an connection between al Quaeda and Iraq.  I thought well huh, that doesn't sound like what I read - let's just check that.  I grabbed the Report from the bookcase, flipped to the page he so helpfully provided, and whaddayaknow, the Report said the exact opposite of what he had just stated as fact.  Sure, the words "al Quaeda" "Iraq" and "connection" were all there in the same sentence, but the Report said "no connection."  I was screaming at the TV, wondering why all of the journalists in the room were just transcribing the evil bastard's high-test BS without question.  Good for that cadet for calling him out!
