Thair Nakib

You might be hearing a bit from this fellow today:

"'Your participation will foil the terrorists,' said Thair al-Naqib, a spokesman for interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi. 'The elections are a great success for the people -- it will represent the rule of law, not the rule of violence.'"

Interesting sidenote: Thair is the brother of the Minister of Interior, Falah Nakib.
