Did I or did I not, on April 2nd, say that Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf was the biggest celebrity of Operation Iraqi Freedom? Well, as it turns out I'm not the only one who thinks so. In an article titled "Iraqi minister becomes Net star," C|Net news mentions the cult-following that al-Sahaf has gathered based on his "jovial" comments and endless boasts on international television. There was apparently even a website setup on his behalf over at www.welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com, but it has disappeared recently. The article contains a few quotes that I missed out on, and the best follows: "God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis!" Ahhhh...good ol' Mohammed.
