More on Allawi’s reputation

Iraqi PM Iyad Allawi continues to get good press. The AP says:
"To Iraqis hurting from months of violence and chaos, interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi has developed the aura of a tough, perhaps brutal, leader. Surprisingly, that image has endeared him to many Iraqis, accustomed to strongman rule.

’I heard that he goes to jails to kill criminals,’ said Salma Abbas, a 50-year-old government employee. ’This is good. we want someone as strong as Saddam.’"
