MJT: They say you’re a good guy to talk to because you give straight answers. It’s hard to get straight answers in Iraq.
MJT: Can you explain to me why that is? I mean, I have an idea why, but I’m sure you understand it better than I do.
Sayid: It’s the formula of our community. There are many kinds of people. I will give you a straight answer, but it’s Iraqi like me.
Just 20 percent of our people are good. 80 percent are bad. You should know that.
MJT: I’ve heard that. You’re not the first Iraqi who has said this to me.
