It peaked when he charged that Americans were “targeting civilians.” Surely he knows that if the US were truly interested in “targeting civilians,” there wouldn’t be very many of them left alive in Baghdad today. Perhaps it’s wishful thinking on my part, but, I had the sense that this man was having a difficult time spewing the ridiculous party line. I wonder if, before the press conference, the Health Minister set his Bullshit Meter to “vibrate.”
