Denial

Hot from Google:

Iraq denied that US-led forces had captured the whole of the Faw peninsula and the port of Umm Qasr in the south of the country, and said it had “inflicted heavy losses” on US and British troops.

Defence Minister Sultan Hashem Ahmad said the US and British military lied about the number of casualties sustained during land attacks into southern Iraq on Thursday and Friday.

Considering the state of Iraqi communications, and the tendency for only “good” news, real or not, to reach the ears of the Dreaded Leader, there’s a chance Ahmad really believes what he’s saying.
