May 25, 2004

Beyond farce

"I should have known about the pictures and the report [on the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib]."
-- President Bush to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on May 5, as widely reported on May 6

"Further, to protect the Iraqi prisoners from any future abuses; any digital cameras, camcorders, or cell phones with cameras are strictly prohibited anywhere in any military compound in Iraq."
-- Rumsfeld in a fictional quote at The Daily Farce, a satirical Web site, also on May 6

"Mobile phones fitted with digital cameras have been banned in US army installations in Iraq on orders from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, The Business newspaper [of London} reported today."
-- news.com, Australia, May 23

"Now, a series of other reports and comments have followed, suggesting that reality may have imitated comedy. Over the weekend, several news items appeared, which seem to quote Rumsfeld, but actually use the phrase from The Daily Farce word for word."
-- The Register, today

"Rumsfeld Prohibits Cell Phone Cameras In Iraq Or Does He? The Daily Farce News Writer Has ESP Powers"
-- The Daily Farce, today
