Iraqi ambassador to the U.N. says "the game is over"

Iraq’s U.N. ambassador told reporters in New York that “the game is over” and expressed hope that the Iraqi people will be able to live in peace, AP reports.

His comments were the first admission by an Iraqi official that U.S.-led coalition troops had overwhelmed Iraqi forces.

“My work now is peace,” he said. “The game is over and I hope the peace will prevail. I hope the Iraqi people will have a happy life.”

Al-Douri said he has had no communications with Iraq for a long time because of the war. When asked what he thought about the scenes being broadcast from Baghdad, he said, “Well I don’t know really, I watch the television like you.”
