Arab TV news channel offers job to al-Sahhaf
An Arab TV news channel has offered a job to former Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Said al-Sahhaf.
Sahhaf, who became a global celebrity for his persistant refusal to admit that US troops were in Baghdad, has been told by the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya channel that there is a job waiting for him.
"We see no problem in having Mr. Sahhaf join us. First of all, Sahhaf is not on the list of the 55 Iraqis most wanted by the Americans, and he won international fame. We would be happy to have him on our team," Ali Al-Hedeithy, the head of Al-Arabiya told AFP.
Al-Arabiya noted that it had already plucked from the ranks of Saddam's officials former UN ambassador Mohammad Aldouri for a recent series of interviews on the Iraq war. (Albawaba.com)
