Iraqi Information Minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, announced this evening that he was actually a CIA "asset" employed to "sow the seeds of confusion and smear the reputation of Arabia's proud warrior with the bristly brush of ridicule."
As he was lead away from a hastily assembled press conference by soldiers if the 101st Airborne Division al-Sahhaf distributed freshly printed business cards identifying him as "Managing Director, Perception Management Solutions" for the public relations firm Rubenstein Associates.
Before disappearing into a waiting American Blackhawk helicopter, al-Sahhaf could be heard shouting six reasons why medical malpractice reform actually hurts patients.
En route to Cuba he bantered with his captors and told of how he looked forward to being reunited with his wife. Morgan Fairchild.
