Bloodcurdling Brute?

Australian Greens leader Bob Brown reacting to the allegations that Iraqi PM Iyad Allawi murdered six men in cold blood in June:
"The immediate question is how did Allawi, who helped install Saddam Hussein, become the White House choice to lead this benighted country into freedom and democracy?" Senator Brown said.

Dr Allawi's record was well known to both Mr Howard and US President George W Bush, he said.

"Our PM should tell Australia about his role in this brutal man's promotion," Senator Brown said.

"He should return Australia's defence forces from the service of this bloodcurdling brute."
Allawi's bodyguards, provided by the US of A, are said to have witnessed the summary executions.  Did these men witness the bloody birth of the New Iraq?
