    Allawi a new Saddam ?

    Allawi shot prisoners in cold blood: witnesses
    By Paul McGeough in Baghdad
    July 17, 2004

    Iyad Allawi, the new Prime Minister of Iraq, pulled a pistol and executed as many as six suspected insurgents at a Baghdad police station, just days before Washington handed control of the country to his interim government, according to two people who allege they witnessed the killings.


    "The prisoners were against the wall and we were standing in the courtyard when the Interior Minister said that he would like to kill them all on the spot. Allawi said that they deserved worse than death - but then he pulled the pistol from his belt and started shooting them."

    Re-enacting the killings, one witness stood three to four metres in front of a wall and swung his outstretched arm in an even arc, left to right, jerking his wrist to mimic the recoil as each bullet was fired. Then he raised a hand to his brow, saying: "He was very close. Each was shot in the head."


    The Herald has established that as many as 30 people, including the victims, may have been in the courtyard. One of the witnesses said there were five or six civilian-clad American security men in a convoy of five or six late model four-wheel-drive vehicles that was shepherding Dr Allawi's entourage on the day. The US military and Dr Allawi's office refused to respond to questions about the composition of his security team. It is understood that the core of his protection unit is drawn from the US Special Forces units.

    • Still, incase you missed it the term now is mentally challenged. You of all folks should know this.


      Not true. If she had taken responsibility, she would have the same sentence as Timothy McVae. Same crime, killing many innocent Americans, different penalty. Of course you liberals think talking the game is responsibility, when it's actions that count, not talk. She has taken no responsibility.

    • Then try Kobe, Osaka, Tokyo, etc.

    • Uzi, another fine product of Israel. I'm sure we did "pay" for some of those (referencing earlier thread).

      But, John "Joseph Geobbels" Ashcroft, who was defeated for Missouri Governor

      Both, Janet Biassed Reno and John Adolf Ashcroft. have been highly damaging to the legal structure of this country.

      5. "Despite that information about terrorist attacks being prepared by Saddam's regime, Russia's position on Iraq remains unchanged," Putin said.

      Saddam was preparing attacks against the US and not Russia. GW Bush had the responsibility to stop Saddam, while Putin did not.

    • "I can tell your for certain if there is another major attack on our homeland the gloves will come off. "

      Very good! Just one thing though, exactly WHO/WHAT/WHERE will we attack after the next 9-11? Any Suggestions?

      I hear Chad has a weak army and no nuclear capabilities so we could accuse them, make up some "intelligence", charge right in, and tell the good people of the USA that we making the world a safer, better place!

    • "The problem we have in fighting this scourge is that our values prevent us from acting with the kind of ipugnity necessary to deal with those who believe it does not matter how many die ..."

      Really? Is that why we are locking people away for years without charge in secret prisons with no legal rights? And those videos from Abu Ghraib prison sure show what a decent and thoughtful people we are! and what about all those 3,000 pound bombs we dropped on Iraqi shepherds while we were enforcing a no fly zone?

      Oh well... at least our administration has always been honest and told the truth about these things.

    • " Janet Reno was a better AG than all of the previous Republican ones for over 40 years. "

      Let's let her record speak for itself, shall we? At Waco she killed 95 people (24 children), then the retaliatory bombing in Oklahoma City killed another 168. Kidnapped a little kid at gun-point out of a closet in Florida and deported him to Cuba. Refused to investigate Clinton's shady fundraising tactics. Yeah, that's a record any AG would be proud of, even Bobby Kennedy. Talk her up, we're all paying attention.

    • "Janet Reno was not the appropriate person for her position"

      But, John "Joseph Geobbels" Ashcroft, who was defeated for Missouri Governor by a DEAD MAN (
      Callahan, killed in a plane crash [how coincidental!!]), but then appointed by another Kristian Krusader, is qualified. His morning prayer breakfasts & the $15K curtain over Lady Justice's bosoms make him uniquely qualified to administer American Law. I'm not sure Ashcorft has ever met a liberal he couldn't find a reason to incarcerate....


      There, I've stopped yelling, at least for a while. Janet Reno was a better AG than all of the previous Republican ones for over 40 years.
