"I will be telling these people directly what I have put on record before: Our current politicians have been tested and failed. They are not the answer to this problem - they ARE the problem. I will be asking them to join my call for the United Nations to appoint fresh faces to the corrupt and incompetent IHEC."

"I will be putting on the international record that the real Iraq wants new people, whose judgment is not clouded by factional self-interest. New York, London and Washington must be told that is the only way we can see the free and fair vote of the people that Iraq, and the world, desperately needs."
