(Kuwait: Dan Rather) Report introduced.

(Kuwait: Lee Cowan) The bizarre insistence of Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf†† that Iraq is winning the war despite the presence of American troops in Baghdad examined; details given about Sahhaf’s status as a cult hero in the Arab world. [On several occasions, SAHHAF – says we killed most of the Americans, denies that they are near Baghdad.] [“Al Quds” editor Abdel Bari ATWAN†- says the man is extremely popular now; states he has to act defiant or he will be shot by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.]
