No, he did not. This has been pointed out to you. The Youtube clips are available for everyone to see, particularly parts 8 and 9:



You claimed that he said that the sectarian bombings in Iraq were carried out by British special forces (note the definitive article). He did not say this. He referred to one instance in which British special forces were captured with weapons and bombs in Basra, wearing Mahdi army gear, and reminded the audience of the black ops aspect of warfare. You also put the word "native" into his mouth in reference to the apparel of the special forces commanders.

You claimed that he said that "Al Qaeda in Iraq" did not exist. He said the exact opposite, that being that "Al Qaeda" entered Iraq after the occupation began.

He doesn't remember saying what you allege he said, because he did not say it. You are now in the position of insisting on a transparent falsehood, wasting everyone's time with red herrings and bullshit. If you had any dignity or integrity, you would apologise and withdraw your remarks.
