Quotes - Repeat Offender (If You've Seen One Abu...)
 
"In my line of work you gotta keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kinda catapult the propaganda." - Dubya, May 24, 2005

If You've Seen One Abu...
This repeat offense features Dubya becoming confused about historical episodes of Islamist terrorism. As explained on the White House website, the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF), headed by Abu Abbas, was responsible for the 1985 hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro and the murder of American citizen Leon Klinghoffer, a Jew. The Abu Nidal Organization is a separate international terrorist organization which has perpetrated acts of terrorism in twenty countries. Dubya's buildup-to-war speeches given in 2002 noted the difference between these two organizations and the acts they committed, but in 2004, Dubya just went ahead and haphazardly combined them. The results can be found below.
