On tonight's "Countdown," Keith Olbermann replays an exchange between Brian Williams and Tim Russert from NBC Nightly News this evening

Countdown-Republicans-Bushtalk On tonight's "Countdown," Keith Olbermann replays an exchange between Brian Williams and Tim Russert from NBC Nightly News this evening about a stunning, closed door meeting that Keith described as a "watershed moment" between President Bush and eleven Republican members of Congress regarding Iraq.
