Arab TV Wants Iraqi Information Minister

The Dubai-based al-Arabiya satellite channel seeks Baghdad Bob’s “experience” and “analysis of the current situation and the future of Iraq”:

    Al-Sahhaf, who has not been seen since shortly before Baghdad fell to U.S. forces last month, could be back on TV with one phone call to Ali al-Hadethi, the supervisor of al-Arabiya TV.

    ….Hadethi said that Al-Sahhaf was probably forced to by the Iraqi regime to lie on international television and wants to give him a chance to tell the truth.

    “He was a member of the former regime and had to say what the government wanted. He was repeating what was being given to him without being able to verify the truth,” Hadethi said. [NY Post]

Yes, but he did it with such verve! President Bush himself digs the guy, calling him “my man.” Until the original can found, al-Arabiya could use the ex-minister’s talking action figure.
