AP Corrects Rudy-Osama Quote

Following a report on this blog, the AP has issued a correction to its story that incorrectly stated that Giuliani said Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want to invite Osama bin Laden to the White House:

LONDONDERRY, N.H. (AP) – In an Oct. 29 story about Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani criticizing Democrats on Middle Eastern policy, The Associated Press erroneously reported Giuliani’s mention of Syrian President Bashar Assad as a reference to Osama bin Laden.

Giuliani said: “This is the world we live in. It’s not this happy, romantic-like world where we’ll negotiate with this one, or we’ll negotiate with that one and there will be no preconditions, and we’ll invite (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad to the White House, we’ll invite (Syrian President Bashar) Assad to the White House.”

Andrew Sullivan has also issued a correction. None yet, as far as I can tell, from TPM or Keith Olbermann.

UPDATE: Olbermann corrects. See more here and here.
