Foreign troops? Here in Baghdad? Lies, all lies! We have beaten the infidel! (Ducks incoming shell.)

"Just across the Tigris River, seemingly in an orbit of his own, Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf was performing a daily denial routine so bizarre that it makes him seem like a character in a late-night comedy skit."
