But Bush also overstated the case when he corrected Kerry by saying that the senator forgot to mention that Poland supplied forces when the invasion began. Kerry said there were three countries that did -- Britain, Australia and the United States -- and Bush said, "actually he forgot Poland."

Poland later supplied troops and commanded a zone in Iraq. But, except for a few commandos, Polish troops were not part of the original ground invasion. And though Bush said there are 30 countries in the coalition, he neglected to say that about a half-dozen have recently withdrawn their troops. (WaPo)

So either Shrub was misleading, or he is clueless about his own coalition. And just how does the Polish president feel about being a part of the coalition? "They deceived us about the weapons of mass destruction, that's true. We were taken for a ride."(via Atrios)
