CRACKDOWN BACKING: Algeria quietly sent a special envoy to Washington earlier this month in search of sympathy for its crackdown against fundamentalist Muslim militants and for its cancellation of parliamentary elections.

He was born into money and privilege, the son of immigrants who came to this country from Iraq looking for freedom and a better life. They found it, amassing wealth that gave him a home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, tuition to a prestigious prep school, and a $50,000 Infiniti for his 16th birthday.

His customers listened to the president's words between the clicking of scissors and the helicopter-like buzz of the generator that kept the shop lighted. Their feelings about America varied widely, and most said they had made up their minds about the speech beforehand. Atheer Dabagh, a welder with dirt-smudged hands, sat in the brown barber's chair, puffing on a cigarette.
