Bet He was curious what card he was

Amir Hamudi Hasan al-Sadi surrendered to Coalition forces (read US troops). He was apparently Saddam's science advisor. Now, having spent my career in the position of explaining science and technology to people who seemed to be legacy admissions to whatever college their grandfather went to, I think the guy's job consisted of:

Reading the mood of the room as he entered

(If he felt secure) Saying, "Umm no, that's actually not how that works" (Or my particular favorite: "Assuming we can get a favorable ruling on amending that particular law of physics, yeah, it could work")

(Or, more likely)"Umm, I'll have someone look into it."

Imagine being Bush's science advisor. The stories of the crash course he had to take in foreign policy are legion. Meanwhile this guy is quoted as saying that the jury is still out on the theory of evolution. At least (according to the Newshour) this guy get some Mercedes out of trying to teach a pig to sing.

Note for the humor-impaired I assume that Amir Hamudi Hasan al-Sadi was a very bad man because umm, he was Iraqi, and educated, and um bad, very bad
