[where are they now] an occasional series

So … er … where is he now?

I’m talking about the Iraqi Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf. Can anyone forget such classic lines as:

"My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all. G-d will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis."

"We are not afraid of the Americans. Allah has condemned them. They are stupid. They are stupid" (dramatic pause) "and they are condemned."

"They tried to bring a small number of tanks and personnel carriers in through al-Durah but they were surrounded and most of their infidels had their throats cut."

"They are trying to fool you. They’re not at the airport. They are showing any old pictures of buildings. And they even went into the VIP section at the airport, just because Saddam Hussein may have sat in such and such a chair or slept in such and such a bed. They are stupid!"

About Bush: "the insane little dwarf Bush" About Bush and Rumsfeld: "Those only deserve to be hit with shoes."

Anyone know where he is? Perhaps he’s no a shoe salesman in Cincinatti.



He also said a lot of wise and intelligent things about the propaganda that the Bush admin were pushing, to justify a war.

He was an insightful,intelligent and articulate man.
