Iraq Prime Minister Allawi knows his town and cautioned a handful of red and blue state senators to move out of harm’s way near the window of his own office.
This appeared in today’s Washington Times:
Nowhere is safe
Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, recently returned from his second fact-finding mission to Iraq, this latest with a small group of fellow members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, including committee chairman Sen. John W. Warner, Virginia Republican; ranking member Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan Democrat; and Sen. Evan Bayh, Indiana Democrat.
It was during a private meeting at the offices of interim Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi that Mr. Allawi told the senators to move their chairs away from the window — for fear an insurgent sniper might take aim at the American scalps.
