Our [new] Despot? Once upon a time, of course, the CIA had its man in Baghdad works his way into the Baath Party. Eventually that man became Saddam "Fucking" Hussein [Not to be confused with Saddam "Pure as a newborn Lamb" Hussein]. It worked for about 40 years until he turned out to be Noreiga with an army. Never one to just let things go because it didn't work out to well the first time, "Woodrow Wilson-Lite" decided to get back with the program and our newest former CIA agent plant is also reportedly accelerating the whole despot thing.
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. They say the prisoners - handcuffed and blindfolded - were lined up against a wall in a courtyard adjacent to the maximum-security cell block in which they were held at the Al-Amariyah security centre, in the city's south-western suburbs. They say Dr Allawi told onlookers the victims had each killed as many as 50 Iraqis and they "deserved worse than death".Now, in fairness, Allawi denied this story in its entirety just like Saddam denied possessing WMD's.But the informants told the Herald that Dr Allawi shot each young man in the head as about a dozen Iraqi policemen and four Americans from the Prime Minister's personal security team watched in stunned silence.Wow, now it's getting even better isn't it?
