As someone from the green part of the circle, I'm still furious.

So, this....

...reminds me of the Iraqi Information Minister, Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf.

Some of you may be too young to remember him (scroll down for 'TREASURY OF DEATHLESS QUOTES'), but he was the one wheeled in front of the cameras to deliver complete and utter fabrications... A little taste:

"Lying is forbidden in Iraq. President Saddam Hussein will tolerate nothing but truthfulness as he is a man of great honor and integrity. Everyone is encouraged to speak freely of the truths evidenced in their eyes and hearts."

When told coalition troops occupied Baghdad airport -
"...at Saddam Airport? Now that's just silly!"

[On surrenders] "Those are not Iraqi soldiers at all. Where did they bring them from?"

"They are sick in their minds. They say they brought 65 tanks into center of city. I say to you this talk is not true. This is part of their sick mind."

"We are winning!"
