War Propaganda

I keep seeing that the Iraqi Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, releases these press statements that are the funniest things in the world. First, when we invaded, he claimed we weren't really there. Then, when we started running roughshod over the country, he said we were losing. When we started shelling Baghdad, he claimed that they were shelling us, causing heavy casualties. Now, with him apparently not showing up for woirk today, I see someone else has taken up the propaganda machine, with about as intelligent a tongue.

"Iraq will not be defeated," said the Iraqi ambassador to the Arab League, Mohsen Khalil, according to the Washington Post. "Iraq has now already achieved victory--apart from some technicalities."
