Remember Tariq Aziz?

The once much-visible spokesman for the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq made the headlines today

In the stranger-than-strange category Aziz now is begging for America to stay the course in his homeland, after earlier claiming it was America and Great Britain that ruined it.

"Bush and Blair lied intentionally. They were both pro-Zionist," claimed Aziz. "They wanted to destroy Iraq for the sake of Israel, not for the sake of the US and Britain."

Really? I thought it was because George W. Bush was avenging his father's "unfinished war" there -- at least that's what everybody else said at the time.

Aziz has a perhaps surprising request of the current US commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama, whom he initially welcomed as a clean break from George W. Bush. Aziz now wants the occupation of Iraq to continue indefinitely.

"He cannot leave us like this. He is leaving Iraq to the wolves," he said. "When you make a mistake you need to correct a mistake, not leave Iraq to its death."

Some incredibly contradictory statements (I'm trying to be kind) came out of that man's mouth when he was a Saddam Hussein loyalist and his chief spokesman. . .

But honestly, did you ever think he'd say that?
