I thought the comparison between Baghdad Bob and John Herrera are appropriate considering recent events.
Have fun with the description below, and replace any word you wish with these: John Herrera,Al Davis,Oakland Raiders,NFL, Kawakami,Gannon,Russell,Black Hole…you get the idea.
[Al-Sahhaf is known for his daily press briefings in Baghdad during the 2003 Iraq War. His colorful appearances caused him to be nicknamed Baghdad Bob (in the style of previous propagandists with alliterative aliases such as "Hanoi Hannah" and "Seoul City Sue"
On April 7, 2003, al-Sahhaf claimed that there were no American troops in Baghdad, and that the Americans were committing suicide by the hundreds at the city's gates.]
[At that time, American tanks were patrolling the streets only a few hundred meters from the location where the press conference was held. His last public appearance as Information Minister was on April 8, 2003, when he said that the Americans "are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks. They will surrender, it is they who will surrender". ]
