More reality checks on Brian Williams' interview with Dubya:

GWB: The Islamic world attacked us and killed 3,000 people before I even thought of removing Saddam Hussein.

LIE -- According to former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, Bush was determined to scuttle Saddam from the moment he entered office, at least eight months before 9/11.

GWB: We feed the poor. The tsunami hit, and the United States led in the relief effort.

NOT THE WHOLE TRUTH -- The Bush administration pledged a paltry $15 million for aid to tsunami victims until it was called "stingy." Then Bush upped the ante considerably to $600 million.

God help us. The man said he read "three Shakespeares."
