Transcript: Allawi Thanks America Thursday, September 23, 2004 WASHINGTON Iraqi interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi addressed a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday. Following is a transcript of his remarks: ALLAWI: Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, distinguished guests, it's my distinct honor and great privilege to speak to you today on behalf of Iraq's interim government and its people. It's my honor to come to Congress and to thank this nation and its people for making our cause your cause, our struggle your struggle.

OUCH - this is NOT good for Kerry..............
He thanks America, and Kerrry then proceeds to call him a liar.
Not only does Kerry attempt to undermine America, he attempts to undermine Iraq as well.
Talk about alienating your allies. lol
Kerry WANTS Iraq to be a failure because it would be a bonus in his bucket. He's willing to play dice with millions of lives for a few extra points at the polls. Sick punk.
I hope we see more of these types of speeches from Allawi. Good news from Iraq is good news for America.
Kerry, as a sitting member of congress should be brought up on charges of treason. There has to be an attorney out there that can make this case stick.
Kerry, yet again, swings at every pitch. When he could have endeared himself to Allawi or not said anything at all he has to do the opposite of what Bush has done. That's not leadership. It's like a 2-year-old that will anything except what its parents say to do. Good for kids-not for candidates.
Prime Minister Allawi gave a simple, brilliant speech. I think he just finished Kerry off.
I WILL CONTRIBUTE TO ANY FUND TO ANY ATTORNEY WILLING TO BRING THOSE CHARGES AGAINST KERRY FOR WHAT HE DID WHILE STILL A COMMISSIONED OFFICER IN THE NAVY!!!!!!
Sorry, it kinda gets me upset. I had a DNC drone tell me to my face that he's not sure that Kerry meeting in Paris was wrong.
And if god-forbid Kerry wins, he would have to deal with Allawi. What's he going to do say, "oops I was wrong, but you have to understand a Republican was President at the time."
That was a powerful speech. I'm so glad for the Internet. We would not have been able to access this if the MSM still ran the show!
As MN Sen. Mark Dayton claims he would boycott this speech....for shame.
Wow!!! What a great speech! So long, Johnny, you girlie-boy...
Are you listening, Senator Kerry? . . .
Brilliant speech from a very courageous man.
PM Allawi gets it.
He knows that by supporting Pres. Bush, he gains the continuing support of american/coalition troops in Iraq, thereby allowing them to continue down the path of Democracy/stability.
He also is painfully aware that if Kerry is elected, there is a high, no VERY HIGH liklihood that that support evaporates given J. Flip-flop K.'s track record.
Very sharp and very prgmatic.
My wager is that the MSM will virtually ignore this speech.
Thanks for posting this link...
This speech is a 'keeper'.. print and mail to our soldiers!!
"Your decision to go to war in Iraq was not an easy one but it was the right one."
I'd love to see the people who clapped........(and who didn't.)
