"I Got Your Interim Government Right Here"

CLEVELAND - Mohammed Saeed Sahaf, Iraq's foreign miniter under Saddam Hussein, held a press conference today in which he insisted that the Iraqi interim government does not exist. Sahaf enjoyed brief worldwide fame during the invasion of Iraq when he insisted that Iraq was not being rapidly overrun by American armor. He was dubbed "Comical Ali."

He also claimed during the press conference that he was speaking, not in Cleveland, but from the planet of Yarullac, "where the virgins don't even wear a veil, and you can see their noses and everything."

Sahaf claimed that the Americans never invaded Iraq, and that Saddam is still leading the country. "I saw him just today on the TV, in his palace," he said. "And what did he say? He said that he wasn't on trial for war crimes, that it was George Bush who was on trial. What more proof do you need?"

When asked if he planned to return to Iraq to resume his duties as foreign ministers, Sahaf said, "In a minute, in a minute. I have things to do here in Yarullac. For one thing, I want to stick around and see the Indians make the playoffs."
