For Immediate Release

"As long as the world sees Halliburton cashing in on what George Bush's campaign manager Joe Allbaugh called the 'gold rush' in Iraq, James Baker or anyone else will be handcuffed by this President's unilateralism.

"George Bush needs to change the policy, not just the personnel.

"To make up for their failure at Madrid to get the world invested in Iraq's future, the Bush Administration must take meaningful steps to make Iraq's debt and its reconstruction the world's mission, not just an American one. They must transfer authority for Iraq's reconstruction to the international community."
