Who is Ayad Allawi?

You know, Iraq's new Prime Minister, who said yesterday in the Rose Garden that January's elections will be on, come hell or hell?

"Allawi, a secular Shiite from a wealthy merchant family, was a spy and -- maybe! -- assassin for Saddam Hussein. As a high-ranking officer in the dreaded Mukharabat, the Ba'athist secret police, he was Saddam's friend, colleague and eventual rival. His Baghdad medical degree is said to be phony; the Ba'ath Party gave it to him so he could travel Europe on a World Health Organization grant and infiltrate Arab student groups."

There's more...a lot more. And none of it is good. Read all about it: http://kenlayne.com/2004/09/meet-ayad-allawi.html
