McGeogh is at it again
His thesis? Americans know that Iraqi's are behaving badly and Americans are doing nothing about it. American's are aware of McGeogh's allegations concerning Allawi personally executing folks, and Americans are not doing a thing about it.
So it is all their fault.
They are baad.
This is a full-on spit by McGeogh that his incendiary work in Baghdad has come to nothing - he is appalled, and it is not the fault of the Iraqis. He hasn't the balls to threaten Allawi - after all the man's a killer according to McGeogh - but he will happily spit at the Americans who of course will not do anything to the man.
Plainly, ignoring journalists is the thing they hate most.
Have a read of the questions and feel yourself smothered by the self-importance of the questioner - in Washington I might add - safe as houses and as far from Baghdad as possible.
And note this:
But persistent questioning at a regular State Department press briefing in Washington last week revealed what can only be assumed to be a policy-driven refusal to investigate any excesses by the Allawi regime, even when Americans have witnessed the abuses - and may be complicit because of their refusal or failure to stop them.
Erm. It can actually be assumed to be the truth as well - after all an assumption is neither here nor there - it is an assumption without evidence.
Something with which McGeogh is intimately familiar.
