During the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, Ali infamously said that the Americans “are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks. They will surrender, it is they who will surrender”. When asked where he had got his information he replied, “authentic sources—many authentic sources”.He pointed out that he “was a professional, doing his job”.  On another occasion, he spoke of the disastrous outcomes of previous foreign attempts to invade Iraq, citing an unspecified Western history book and inviting the journalists present to come to his home to read it.
