Do you know that one of the reasons that the weekly Al-Hawzah was closed down in Iraq was, according to occupation authority, due to spreading "rumors"? Do you know how often tyrannical Arab governments invoke that very same pretext for censorship of the media? This is another item about this story. And do you know now why Arab are very skeptical about believing US intentions for the war (to be fair, 1 % of Iraqis according to one poll believe George W. Bush's intentions). So Bush has indeed succeeded in winning hearts and minds of 1 % of all Iraqis.
