Propaganda has its limits

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 16, 2003

The last I heard from him, Muhammed Saed al-Sahhaf, the Information Minister for the defunct Iraqi government, was saying: "There are no American infidels in Baghdad." Then he disappeared from the scene.

Too bad, because the man had a definite flair. It isn't easy to keep a straight face while making preposterous statements.

My guess is that he'll turn up again soon, on a new job, saying: "The archdiocese is cooperating fully with the investigation..."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
