Following a ceremony transferring sovereignty to Iraq two days ahead of schedule, Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi says the new Iraq will be a pluralist, federalist society. Allawi calls on Iraqis to fight insurgents and invites former Saddam Hussein loyalists to distance themselves from the insurgency and join the Iraqi army to fight terrorism. Hear NPR's Deborah Amos.
