Chimpy NOT Translated On US Propaganda Channel
Guess even they knew pResident Turd wasn't going to say anything worth hearing...

"Some said that Bush was more worried about looking good to Americans in advance of presidential elections in November than in improving relations with the Arab world, which would require painful changes in U.S. policy toward Iraq and Israel.
U.S. government-financed channel Alhurra, which appears to be little watched in the Arab world, ran its interview with Bush without a translation into Arabic, much reducing the impact. "

"Ah love them Ayh-rabs, even if they have brown skins and are too dumb to speak Murrican like decent folks..."

1. What's the point? The expert interviewed on NPR said no one believes
anything they say on Alhurra, anyway.

2. they were probably more focused on american airplay
this propaganda is as much for *US* as it is for its ostensible "primary audience."

4. "Brown people CAN govern themselves"
and the Arab world rejoices at the vote of confidence from their fair-skinned occupier.

5. Well yeah. The headline in my local paper was
