.....and he has been known to mix fact and fiction if it suits his purpose of the moment.

He refers to the UAE. DP is a Dubai company. Dubai is but one of six or seven "states" that make up the UAE.

But then Novak is part of the "media" isn't he. Details and fact are seldom important.

That aside, I'm not crazy about his style, talking over people, with his sense of glee barely held in check.
