Olmert sure tells a good story.  Too bad, the Americans insist he's lying.  And Tsippi has another version, and the Arabs have a different one.

“I said, ‘Get me President Bush on the phone,’ ” Mr. Olmert said in a speech in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, according to The Associated Press. “They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn’t care: ‘I need to talk to him now,’ ” Mr. Olmert continued. “He got off the podium and spoke to me.”

I guess the pressure of the war is getting to them.  There are too many cracks showing in their happy troika.
