Sahhaf denies Saddam Hussein's capture: Kuwaiti SMS joke Kuwaitis, jubilant at the capture of arch-foe Saddam Hussein, were frantically sending each other mobile text messages of mock denials from former Iraqi information minister Mohammad Said al-Sahhaf.
"Sahhaf has denied the capture of Saddam Hussein, saying the man who was arrested is the leader of the (Afghan) Taliban," read one message.
"Urgent ... Saddam announces the arrest of members of the (Iraqi) Governing Council and the coalition troops: Sahhaf," said another.
Sahhaf, who has been living in the United Arab Emirates since July when he was allowed to leave Baghdad following Saddam's ouster, shot to fame for his wildly inaccurate statements on the war in the run-up to Saddam's overthrow.
Iraqi troops invaded and occupied Kuwait in August 1990 before they were driven out by a US-led multinational coalition seven months later.

They're not even 100 miles of Saddam. They are not in any place. They hold no place in Iraq.
Their failure in this regard is abysmal. Saddam will embroil them, confuse them and keep them in the quagmire.
Where are the pictures, the images of Saddam capture? Do not believe them!
They do not even have control over themselves! May they be accursed.

This was not Saddam. Saddam is great and he is good for Iraq. Just ask your next President, Howard Dean. These are pictures of the Unibomber. And it was us Iraqi's that captured him. I mean, we are securing his services to help the insurgence. We were just making sure he was healthy after spending all that time up in his Montana cabin without the comforts of home that our current President has, the great Saddam. The Unibomber will be paid handsomely. American pigs beware. He will blow up all your males so you will only have girls left to fight us.

"Do not be fooled by that picture of an enemy of Iraq putting a stick into Saddam's mouth. Saddam is cleverly drawing the infidel into his trap. When that tongue depressor is fully in Saddam's mouth, Saddam will laugh at how he has fooled his enemies into a false sense of security and will bite the doctor's finger, driving all of the infidels howling back to their own countries. Even now, the infidels are being chased from Iraq. Saddam is wise and Allah is good."

Methinks Sahhaf is pushing his luck, a bit.
Anyway I thought the Koran strictly prohibits the practice of SMS.

These crooks and liars have not captured anyone but themselves in their own trap. They are stuck in the mud of a quagmire, we are beating them with our shoes. The hole they are talking about is their own graveyard, where we will roast them. The junkie nose Bush will be on al Jazera today, marketing his lies to the prostitutes at the United Nations. Saddam is not captured, he is waiting at the corner where he will butcher them. They are sick in their minds.
