Allawi Speech Made in the USA

This is what Bush said during yesterday’s debate:

Now, my opponent says he’s going to try to change the dynamics on the ground. Well, Prime Minister Allawi was here. He is the leader of that country. He’s a brave, brave man. And when he came, after giving a speech to the Congress, my opponent questioned his credibility. You can’t change the dynamics on the ground if you’ve criticized the brave leader of Iraq. One of his campaign people alleged that Prime Minister Allawi was like a puppet. That’s no way to treat somebody who’s courageous and brave that is trying to lead his country forward.

Now it turns out that Allawi’s speech to Congress was written and coached by members of the Bush Administration. You’d think that they could find a better speechwriter elsewhere. If that doesn’t make Allawi look like a puppet in the eyes of Iraqis and the world, I don’t know what does:

Allawi was coached by US officials — including Dan Senor, former spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq– in perfecting his delivery of the speech delivered before a joint session of Congress one week ago.

Just one more step from the gutter to the sewer. I think people are beginning to see the hypocrisy, lack of integrity, and the flip-flops in policy over the last four years.
