Who, exactly, does he thinks believes this crap?
Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf called reports of coalition forces on the outskirts of Baghdad "an illusion."
"They're not even [within] 100 miles," he said. "They are not in any place. They hold no place in Iraq. This is an illusion. ... They are trying to sell to the others an illusion."
This is with our people at the damn airport twelve miles away! You think maybe we could time the final offensive so that a Pfc from 3rd Infantry could walk in and make a guest appearance during the next news conference this fool holds?
