UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw: Idiotic comments: "On May 17, the head of the Iraqi 'Governing Council,' a front group for the US which governs nothing, was assassinated. The UK Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, said: 'What this shows is the terrorists and insurgents in Iraq are trying to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power from the occupiers to the Iraqi people and that these are enemies of Iraqi people themselves.'

"Foreign secretaries have been known to issue idiotic statements, but Straw's remark is a '10' on the scale of the all-time stupidest. What the assassination shows is that Iraqis are not going to permit the US and the UK to impose a puppet government. Whoever we install will be assassinated."
