Clumsy propaganda attempts
If you want a laugh, check out Iraq's sad attampts at propaganda.
Calling the bombing in Baghdad a "cowardly assault," al-Sahaf denied U.S. claims that they launched more than 300 missiles.This is the same guy who denied for almost a day that US/UK forces where in Iraq, that the Faw Peninsula had fallen, etc.
If Iraq focused its efforts on wounded children and playing the "poor defenseless" card it would do far better. These clumsy efforts at propaganda make it easier to dismiss Iraqi claims outright -- even the ones that are true.
Of course, al-Sahaf may be play-acting for an Arab audience. And in that regard, perhaps al-Sahaf is succeeding.Posted March 22, 2003 07:46 AM | Comments (10)
