 White House wrote Allawi speech

In a letter to the White House, California Senator Dianne Feinstein expresses "profound dismay" that the White House allegedly wrote a large portion of Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's speech to Congress last week:
I want to express my profound dismay about reports that officials from your administration and your reelection campaign were "heavily involved" in writing parts of Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's speech.... You may be surprised by this, Mr. President, but I viewed Prime Minister Allawis speech as an independent view on conditions in Iraq.... His speech gave me hope that reconstruction efforts were proceeding in most of the country and that elections could be held on schedule.... To learn that this was not an independent view, but one that was massaged by your campaign operatives, jaundices the speech and reduces the credibility of his remarks....

Her letter was a response to an article appearing in Thursday's Washington Post, which also alleged that Allawi was coached by US officials -- including Dan Senor, former spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq-- in perfecting his delivery of the speech delivered before a joint session of Congress one week ago.

If you read that article, the conclusion is unavoidable: Allawi is W's Mini-Me.
