Former Iraqi PM: Bush policies an 'utter failure'

Ayad Allawi, the American-appointed, one-time prime minister of Iraq,
said Saturday the Bush administration's policies in the country have
been an "utter failure."

In a wide-ranging interview with Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat,
Allawi offered harsh criticisms of George W. Bush's handling of the
nation's sectarian violence, and of the sitting Iraqi administration.

"Yes, Bush's policies failed utterly," said Allawi. "Utter failure.
Failure of U.S. domestic and foreign policy, including fighting
terrorism and economic policy."

"His insistence on names like 'democracy' and 'open elections,'
without giving attention to political stability, was a big mistake,"
he added. "It cast shadows on Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Egypt, and I
believe this will be remembered in history as President Bush's policy.

"Ending Saddam's regime was essential, but replacing the Saddam regime
with extreme chaos was not right," he said. "I did not imagine the
political process would eat itself from inside or that it would
abandon the rule of law and establish political sectarianism."

Allawi is said to be the the source of substancial press coverage of
an alleged link between the 9/11 attacks and Saddam's government. A
forged letter containing the allegation, which a CIA official admitted
was ordered by a note written on White House stationary, was allegedly
produced at the request of Vice President Cheney.

In August 2007 it was revealed that lobbying firm Barbour, Griffith
and Rogers -- which has close ties to the Bush administration and
whose president is a former US envoy to Iraq -- was supporting former
interim prime minister Ayad Alllawi. The firm sent hundreds of e-mails
in Allawi's name from an e-mail address it purchased,
DrAyadAllawi@Allawi-for-Iraq.com, and it purchased the Web domain
AllawiForIraq.com.

"A former member of Saddam's Baath Party who fled into exile and
agitated against the dictator, Allawi now heads a secular political
movement which did poorly in elections in 2005," reports Reuters. "His
bloc was part of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government but walked
out last year."

Why do you think he is the worst US President of last 50 years?

I'd like to know what this PM guy would've done differently, he doesn't give
many answers with quotes like this:
"Ending Saddam's regime was essential, but replacing the Saddam regime
with extreme chaos was not right," he said. "I did not imagine the
political process would eat itself from inside or that it would
abandon the rule of law and establish political sectarianism."

Hazey, we know that you are not exactly a fan of democracy and open
elections.
So why boring us again?
