Kerry staff attacks Allawi  

"Allawi Effectiveness Hinges on Credibility":: Kerry's staff has made completely inappropriate comments about Interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi. Terrorists are inspired by talk of oppressive occupation and emboldened when a Democratic candidate co-opts their position that being allied with America costs foreign nations’ civilian lives.

This is ridiculous.
"While Kerry was relatively restrained in disputing Allawi's upbeat portrayal, some of his aides suggested that the Iraqi leader was simply doing the bidding of the Bush administration, which helped arrange his appointment in June.

'The last thing you want to be seen as is a puppet of the United States, and you can almost see the hand underneath the shirt today moving the lips,' said Joe Lockhart, a senior Kerry adviser."

What if terrorists wanted for Americans to believe that "conditions are better than they appear" but if they get worse then "Washington, New York, London, Paris, Cairo, everywhere, all burn." What if nonsesnse like that inspired terrorists. Would it be OK to criticize these statements then?
