Mo's back...

.. and he's going to write down a book/biography. If the content/take on the world is only remotely close to his press conferences, it's a safe buy to me. And look what Operation Enduring Freedom has done to his hair colour!

More can be found at the BBC:

In brief interviews on Al-Arabiya and Abu Dhabi TV on Thursday, he said that he had surrendered himself to US forces, who had released him after questioning.

"Through some friends, I went to the Americans, to the people in charge, and an interview took place about a number of issues relating to my work," he said.

"After the interview, I was released."

But a spokesman for US forces in Iraq said they had never questioned Mr Sahhaf, let alone had him to release.

"The time is not yet ripe to say what happened. When history's ready, then we can talk about it," he said.

He refused to retract his wartime claims that Iraqi forces were "burning the Americans in their tanks", saying only that his reports came from "authentic sources - many authentic sources".

""authentic sources"" like his ass.

The guy was _the_ face of the war, cut him some slack will ya

Well, it is sorta true, from a certain point of view. M1A2 tanks don''t have air conditioning.

Ah... not true! The TMS is being retrofitted on M1a2 SEP tanks. Now, the M1a1 which was used in Iraq does not have such creature comforts.

Wrong again, the M1 Abrams NBC protection system actually provides for an air conditioning-like experience and would be used extensively if it weren''t for a bigger chance of fire hazards and the system eating away power from the engine.

Air conditioning on war vehicles? Jeez! What''s next, a cup holder and a baby seat?

DVD player, soft top convertible, hub caps that spin and a personalized license plate ""PHATRYD""

man, fangblackbone has me thinking about buying a tank. Wierd.

Well if it actually improves battlefield performance what would be the hold-up of installing _any_ system? Of course there are budget restrictions but some enhancements are invaluable, better crew crew survivability/comfort being one of them. Air-conditioning actually has a purpose in arid/WMD environments.

It was kind of a joke, Koesj

I wouldn''t mind driving a tank. Then all the ladies would think I have a big member.

Of course you would have to roll with 24''s, all chrome. No self respecting tank crew would be happy with less........
