Now go outside and look at the sky.

Abu Garamp???

I just heard the president's speech about the US plans for the transition of power to a Iraqi government after June 30th.

He badly mis-pronounces the name of the Abu Ghraib prison camp 3 times in one minute. In three different ways! It sounds like he has never heard that name before.

Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself. Here is the Real Audio stream from the PBS site - fast-forward to 20:45 and listen for about a minute for the full oratory fiasco.

How is that possible? I mean, really? That is the place where US soldiers tortured inmates and whose name has been mentioned over and over again on all news outlets. Bush and his aides must have had dozens of meetings for hours and hours about this subject.

Why does he not know this name?
