The Chief Police Clown of Dubai just can't shut up, but since he ran out of things to say about six months ago, now he's just making stuff up as he goes along.
Al Quds al-Arabi reports on his latest claims.
Even though Canada denied that they had arrested anyone associated with the assassination of Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, Lieutenant-General Dahi Khalfan Tamim insists that his information is more accurate. In fact, now he knows that not only did Canada arrest one of the Mossad spies, but after the arrest he (escaped? and) went to safety in the United States!
Normally, that would be enough bizarre theories for one interview, but Lt-Gen Dahi has more:
He says that Mabhouh was not on his way to Iran, but rather to China. Moreover, Mabhouh in previous visits to Dubai (remember, with a false passport) never went to Iran afterwards.
But wait - there's more!
Dahi also says that the Mossad is really, really, really angry at him for his fantastic police work that has yet to result in a single arrest directly connected to the murder. They are so mad, they tried to kill him as well! Unfortunately, no details are forthcoming on this claim. I'm sure that the team of would-be assassins are in Dubai jail right now, since Khalfan obviously foiled the plot.
And he said that the Mossad isn't so great, anyway. (I guess they aren't if they couldn't even kill him.) You see, the Mossad sent 42 people to kill a single, unarmed man - how hard can that be?
Yes, he said 42. Apparently the number of suspects has been continuing to grow while we weren't looking.
