Where are they now: Iraq’s Information Minister

Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf (right) is now serving as the chairman of the IOC’s medical commission under the alias, “Arne Ljungqvist” (I guess “Turd Ferguson” was already taken?).

What makes me so sure? Well according to this story, “Olympics: Pollution over Beijing? Don’t worry, it’s only mist, say officials”, “Ljungqvist” claims that the pollution in China is really a mist, nothing more nothing less.

“The mist in the air that we see in those places, including here, is not a feature of pollution primarily but a feature of evaporation and humidity,” he told the IOC’s annual session.

Right-o

What’s next? Global warming is going to destroy the planet?

Oh wait a minute…

[FYI: The good minister is actually living with his family in the United Arab Emirates, at least according to his Wikipedia entry. Is it just me or do the Minister and Wikipedia go together like peas and carrots?]
