Kevin Sites Iraq Blog: Interview with Ayad Allawi

On his weblog today, NBC News combat correspondent Kevin Sites interviews Iraq Interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi.

Like him or not–Iraqi interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's determination is as indisputable as his temper.

Prior to our interview he shakes with his left hand–his right injured from banging it against a mahogany desk. But at the moment he is calm and focused.

And like the different sides of his personality– in two separate speeches recently he painted very different pictures of Iraq.

To the U.S. Congress in Washington he said his government was winning the war against the insurgents, but to his own interim assembly here, he said the nation faces some very grave challenges. I sat down with Dr.Allawi, in a one-on-one interview to discuss, among other things, which is the real Iraq?
