Biting the Hand That Feeds Him 

Remember when the Empty Flight Suit got all in a huff because, he thought, John Kerry had dissed Iraqi "Prime Minister" and all-around errand boy Ayad Allawi? Boy, was he steamed:
"This great man came to our country to talk about how he's risking his life for a free Iraq, which helps America, and Senator Kerry held a press conference and questioned Prime Minister Allawi's credibility," Bush said in Janesville as he launched a daylong bus tour through Wisconsin. "You can't lead this country if your ally in Iraq feels like you question his credibility."

But, evidently, Allawi can lead Iraq while questioning the competence of his ally in Washington:
Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi has blamed "major neglect" by US-led forces for the execution of 49 Iraqi army recruits by insurgents this weekend.

"I think it was because of gross negligence by some elements within the multinational forces," Mr Allawi told the country's interim Parliament, without giving details.

Now, I ask you - is that any way for Allawi to treat his Boy King, who even now is risking his meal ticket to keep the Iraqi puppet regime propped up? The nerve of some people!
