Just watched this guy on THIS WEEK. Very sad. He comes off like a big American puppet. Creepy too. Total liar, denies everything. Iraq is a-okay, he says. No problem there at all. Yep, nothing to lose your head over.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Since you've taken office, the insurgents have grown in strength, they're controlling more territory, they're killing more Americans and killing more Iraqis, are they willing this war right now?

IRAQI PRIME MINISTER: I don't think so. I think you're information is wrong.

STEPHANOPOULOS: It's wrong? They're not growing in strength right now?

IRAQI PRIME MINISTER: No.

STEPHANOPOULOS: All the reports are that they're controlling three dozen towns...

IRAQI PRIME MINISTER: I think you really should reconsider the information that you are getting.... The tensions are much less now.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Forgive me sir, but you keep saying the tensions are less. You've been reading headlines all week, 300 Iraqis dead, an attack every single day, it seems to be getting worse not better

IRAQI PRIME MINISTER: No, you are looking at the negative sides only, there are a lot of positive things.

Yes, like Iraqis can now use eBay.
