George W. Bush's newest television ad shows scenes from the Olympics along with flags from Iraq and Afghanistan. The narrator mentions them as two new free nations competing. So far, so good for Bush. How quickly things can change.
Members of the Iraqi soccer team objected to being used by Bush. The words in the above Scribble were actually spoken by Iraqi team member Salih Sadir. It gets worse.
