countdown-911-nightmare.jpg On tonight's special 9/11 edition of Countdown Keith Olbermann, who was reporting from Ground Zero in New York City, slams it out of the park. His opening segment covered President Bush and Rudy Giuliani's actions today and digs deeper into the hapless and transparent testimony of General David Petraeus and Ryan Crocker before the Senate Armed Services Committee this afternoon. Keith talks with Newsweek's Richard Wolffe about the day's events and breaks it down the way only he can.

Olbermann: "It is not truly an eclipse, it does not darken all of our lives evenly. It is not truly a cloud bank that does not obscure the sun from all of us all of the day. Perhaps it is a fog from which we can break, past which we can push, but which is at best, always visible in the near distance and pushing back. It's is, of course, in our fifth story on the Countdown - 9/11."
