Kerry Offers Allawi Guided Tour of Iraq

Democrat presidential contender John Forbes Kerry today offered to give Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi a guided tour of Iraq to clear up misunderstandings[1] that Mr. Allawi has about the situation in his own nation.

“I’m grateful to Sen. Kerry for his generous offer,” said Mr. Allawi at a joint Rose Garden news conference with President George Bush. “I’m sure he has a much clearer perspective on events in my homeland than I do.”

A spokesman for the Kerry-Edwards campaign said the tour will help Prime Minister Allawi to “see the ugly face of American foreign policy and petro-imperialism, and strip him of his misplaced optimism.”

Asked about Mr. Kerry’s trip to Iraq, President Bush said, “He might as well go now, because after I’m re-elected, he’ll probably get called up in the draft[2].”
