Al Sayef's chair-carrying antics around Baghdad quickly earned him world fame. At one time, he even drew criticism from the U.S. Secretary Of Defense for his on-camera exploits. A forthcoming and optimistic man, Al Sayef says that New Orleans has become a treasure trove for his collection of looted chairs, which he boasts could seat the entire audience of Air America network.
Al Sayef's new additions to the collection already include bus seats from the school buses flooded by Hurricane Katrina, bar stools from French Quarter, wheelchairs from an abandoned hospital, and - surprisingly enough - a pilot's seat from a rescue helicopter.
The aspiring looter's plans for the future include visiting Washington, DC on September 24th, for a massive anti-war protest, rally, and festival in front of the White House, featuring Cindy Sheehan. He has already registered for this event online as a nonviolent participant, hoping that the anticipated "huddle and babelism" as Al Sayef himself puts it, might allow him to spirit away the chair of the President of the United States.

LOOTED OVER LOOTING!
Did Rove INVADE Baghdad to flood New Orleans?
Is Google looting the internet for the 'Common Good' of the DNC?
A Fellow Traveler.
It's our troops and corporations that're doing the real looting. The invitation to the festivities ends with this statement:
Quote:We will speak out against the corporate theft of Iraq's resources and the decimation of the Iraqi economy through privatization and "free trade." [italics mine]
That's one of the most interesting and revealing sentences I've ever read. Down with private property and bourgeois notions of freedom. Viva la revolucion!!!
