"He's my man, he was great"
 "Somebody accused us of hiring him and putting him there. He was a classic."
- President George W Bush about al-Sahhaf, (interview on NBC)

Thursday 26 June, Al-Arabiya satellite network and Abu Dabi TV.

"The information was correct, but the interpretation was not,"
about his own words....

"The time is not yet ripe to say what happened. When history's ready, then we can talk about it,"
about the fall of Saddam's regime....

"authentic sources - many authentic sources"
about where his information came from....

"The military part of our information network - which we were accustomed to rely on for exact information - was the first part of the network to fall apart,"

"It did suffer and it became very weak, while the reporters from Iraqi radio and television stations were more active and had more accurate information."

"It was unworthy of our military sources that they were the first to weaken."

"a difficult situation, not for one individual, but for everybody"
about the war....

"Everyone could face something that hurts him. But I don't expect that I will be hurt,"
about the future....

"Old" Iraqi Information Minister quotes/quotations:

"We will push those crooks, those mercenaries back into the swamp"

(Coalition forces claimed that over 300 missiles and bombs hit Baghdad that night)

"I think that the Iraqi ground defenses shot down dozens of missiles. We are in the process of counting all these missiles quickly"

"These are not ordinary human beings. They are criminals. As a matter of fact, they are criminals, both by nature and by training. By nature, because they are not decent. They are criminals."

I am talking about those mercenaries. ... They have started throwing those pencils, but they are not pencils, they are booby traps to kill the children."
The Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf said that coalition forces were throwing booby traps in the form of pens and pencils into Iraqi villages and townships.

Al-Sahaf also said the Iraqis have "shot down a lot of those cruise missiles" and said war's impact was "trivial."

"Those who ran away are now outside the distant perimeter wall of the airport. Now they're outside the wall and the heroic Republican Guard is now in control of the whole area of Saddam International Airport. So where are those villainous louts, those mercenaries?"

"The force that was in the airport, this force was destroyed."

"We have crushed the whole force which dared to venture there. They were on the runway at Saddam International Airport. That force was crushed"

"Their casualties and bodies are many. Their equipment and vehicles, several were destroyed,"

"They are still trying to bomb with artillery and rocket-propelled grenades to hit the Republican Guard who are controlling Saddam International Airport."

"God willing we'll slaughter them all"
- Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, 6 April
Al-Sahaf denied the report that U.S. forces had moved into the heart of Baghdad from the south and the southeast, a day after securing the airport, west of the Iraqi capital (5. April).
He said the Republican Guard has control of Saddam International Airport after fighting a fierce battle.
Al-Sahaf said he would take reporters to the airport later in the day, after it was cleaned up.

"The infidels are committing suicide by the hundreds on the gates of Baghdad... Be assured, Baghdad is safe, protected. Iraqis are heroes."

"One hundred infidels committed suicide as they entered the holy city of Baghdad. Their tanks will become their tombs."

"We will in fact encourage them to commit more suicides. We have given them death and poison."

"There is no presence of the American columns in the city of Baghdad at all. We besieged them and we killed most of them."

"These mercenaries, I swear by God, those who are still in Washington, they have sent their troops to be burned."

"The Americans, they always depend on a method what I call ... stupid, silly. All I ask is check yourself. Do not in fact repeat their lies."

 “Don't repeat the lies of the liars.”
- Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, 7 April
With American tanks occupying the Baghdad parade ground, he stood calmly a couple of hundred yards away, on the roof of the Palestine Hotel, to tell reporters that none of this was really happening.

Miscellaneous funny quotes by the Iraqi Information Minister

"We will welcome them with bullets and shoes."
- Iraqi Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf

My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all.

Our initial assessment is that they will all die.

These cowards have no morals. They have no shame about lying.

We will slaughter them; Bush Junior, and his international gang of bastards!

The insane little dwarf, Bush.

The midget, Bush, and that Rumsfeld deserve only to be beaten with shoes by freedom loving people everywhere.

Bush is a very stupid man. The American people are not stupid, they are very clever. I can't understand how such clever people came to elect such a stupid president.

Bush, Blair and Rumsfeld; they are the funny trio.

There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!

I blame Al-Jazeera. They are marketing for the Americans.

The American press is all about lies! All they tell is lies, lies and more lies!

Let the American infidels bask in their illusion.

They are most welcome. We will butcher them.

Saddam Hussein's soldiers and his great forces gave the Americans a lesson which will not be forgotten by history. Truly.

Washington has thrown their soldiers on the fire.

I speak better English than this villain, Bush.

Our estimates are that none of them will come out alive unless they surrender to us quickly.

They are becoming hysterical. This is the result of frustration.

They think we are retarded. They are retarded.

Yesterday, we slaughtered them and we will continue to slaughter them.

Today, the tide has turned, we are destroying them.
