"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Poor Baghdad Bob. Forced to stand in front of the press all those days and tell the most outrageous lies imaginable and now the US thinks he is too insignificant to bother arresting.

However, the colorful ex-Iraqi spokesman apparently is wanted by someone: He has a job offer to appear on television. The BBC, ABC and NBC's "Today" show have said in recent days that Sahaf hasn't drawn the interest of U.S. forces because he isn't on their deck of cards of 55 wanted officials.

The BBC reported on April 30 that a London-based Arabic newspaper said the Americans have refused to arrest Sahaf even though they have him under surveillance.

An Iraqi Kurdish official told the newspaper that Sahaf was staying at his aunt's house in Baghdad, and he was still trying to negotiate his arrest.
