THE UK Telegraph on Iraqi

THE UK Telegraph on Iraqi delusion minister Saeed al-Sahaf:

As American forces advanced through the capital, Mr al-Sahaf told journalists: "There are no American troops in Baghdad. We surrounded them, we killed them, we made them drink poison and taught them a lesson that history will never forget."

When coalition troops took Najaf, he insisted that they had been routed. When they occupied the airport, he announced that they had been butchered.

The culmination will come when he is seized during one of his own broadcasts, and hauled off shrieking that the Americans have been driven deep into Kuwait.

I hope Saeed survives the war. He's prime talkshow talent. Imagine the Letterman appearance!
