Gothamist is sure Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf never thought that Americans would love him but think again. The We Love The Iraqi Information Minister website deconstructs reasons for this love, namely his blindly passionate belief that the U.S. hasn't been attacking Iraq. You can also see Sahaf throughout history in lovingly (it's all about the love) recreated scenes. [Via Greg - thanks!]

CNN calls al-Sahaf the "face and voice of Iraqi defiance."
