Jamil Hussein Update

From the press conference (quoted at Michelle Malkin):

For example, we have some of the respected news outlets that deal with news fast and have a relation with many TV channels and the media in general, who distributed a story quoting a person called Jamil Hussein. Afterward, we searched our sources in our staff for anyone by this name– maybe he wore an MOI uniform and gave a different name to the reporter for money. And the second name used is Lt. Maythem.

However, all of you know that the ministry of interior has a large public affairs office and its official spokesman, and we are ready to answer any questions you may have. Therefore, you should contact MOI PAO for all your needs to get real, true news. Based on that, we strongly deny any relation with those two names.

More to come this evening when there’s time to digest, but in the meantime, read up:

- Memeorandumscroll down a little; Michelle’s post is the peg (Update: link is to the page as of 11PM Nov. 30, and has Michelle’s post at the top)

UPDATE, 2:30 PM: Have to note that Curt at Flopping Aces has a new post (scroll down to “UPDATE 1000hrs PST”; HT Malkin) that includes a laughably inadequate non-response response from AP.
