I don’t mean to rip this directly from The Corner, but it’s too good not to repost here in its entirety:
THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION [Jonah Goldberg]
I don’t want to risk any US soldiers lives for a photo-op, but wouldn’t it be awesome if we could get troops inside that briefing room during one of this joker’s tirades.
Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, Iraqi Minister of Information: We have the criminal Zionist oil gang on the run! The mercenaries are being destroyed. Victory is at hand for the glorious nation of Iraq and our supreme leader Saddam Hu—
Sgt. Williams, US Special Forces: Excuse me sir, you’re going to have to come with me.
al-Sahhaf: What? Get out of here! I am speaking to the media!
Williams: I’m afraid not sir. Say goodbye.
al-Sahhaf: Lying infidel! People of the world I ask you! Do you believe me or your lying eyes?”
Williams: Sir, seriously. Shut your pie hole or we’ll be forced to shut it for you.
al-Sahhaf: Okay….[whispering] could I get one of those ready-to-eat meals?
