(not to mention probably never get another serious job in US): NBC Fires Arnett After Iraq TV Interview. Between his escapades in the first Gulf War, anf then making stuff up for CNN a few years later, and now this, one guesses he is truly done with major networks in the US.

And I would not wear this as a badge of honor:

He said the Iraqis allowed him to stay in Baghdad because they respect him.

“The Iraqis have let me stay because they see me as a fellow warrior,” Arnett said. “They know I might not agree with them, but I’ve got their respect.”

It strikes me as odd that in every picture of Saddam since the war started, there is always some kind of curtain behind him (although the curtain itself varies) and he is always sitting. Plus, why haven’t they just issued a video that is 100% conclusive? Most strange.

Fox had a picture that had Saddam’s bodyguard in it, but no Saddam. Apparently the bodyguard has never been photgraphed without Saddam present in 15 years. Also strange, but I have not had time to see if there is further news or analysis of this situation.

So, I wonder how many people still think that there is no way, no how, that secular Saddam would ever work with Islamic fundamentalist terrorists.

Iraqi civilians were reported to be emerging from Basra yesterday to pass critical intelligence information to British-led forces to aid attacks against Saddam Hussein’s forces within their own city.

British intelligence officers said there had been a steady stream of information coming from the population in Basra, Iraq’s second largest city, about the movements and activities of paramilitaries loyal to Saddam.

As usual, Friedman’s latest column is worth a read. His argument that NATO will not only survive the Iraq war, but thrive in the future as a US-led alliance in the war against terror is most intriguing. The current situation in Afghanistan vis--vis NATO was unknown to me, and does lend some credence to his argument.

Still, we shall see.

This–Iraq Says Suicide Strikes Are ‘Policy’–is not the move of a military that believes it can win, but rather a move of desperation to attack the coalition’s resolve. For a regime that so many claimed did not have any usage for terrorism, it is remarkable to degree to which all the regime has are terrorist tactics. I still believe that many of the mainline military would have quit if it weren’t for the terror being applied by the regime to its own citizens.

It is worth noting that one does not create suicide bombers overnight. Clearly the regime has been fomenting some of its own Islamic extremism to create these “weapons.”
