He was in 2003 during the invasion by the American troops of Iraq the Minister of Information.
He is better known as Baghdad Bob.
Many people will always remember his limitless optimism.
On April 7, 2003, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf claimed that there were no American troops in Baghdad.
Saying that the Americans were committing suicide by the hundreds at the city's gates.
At that time, American tanks were patrolling the streets only a few hundred yards from the location where the press conference was held. Baghad Bob's last public appearance as Information Minister was on April 8, 2003, when he said that the Americans "are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks. They will surrender, it is they who will surrender".
These days Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf is remembered triggered by John McCain.
He is making similar statements as Baghdad Bob.
So ridiculous, ludicrous and out of proportion that it becomes amusing.
Being far behind in the polls and claiming:
"We've got them exactly where we want them".
A clown in turmoil.
Meanwhile Barack Obama uses humour to counter all the McCain’s accusations coming his way.
The style he is using is very effective.
"He'll soon be calling me a secret Communist for sharing my toys in Kindergarten”.
It’s to use humour to make the opponent ridiculous and that is now an easy job.
Although questioned by American authorities, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf was released, and there has been no suggestion of charging or detaining him for his role in the Saddam Hussein government.
He is now living in the United Arab Emirates with his family.
John McCain will retreat to his ranch in Arizona after he has lost the elections next week.
Demoralized, discouraged and dumped by his own Republican Party.
Not so Sarah Palin.
She’ll be around.
