GOP-Tied Law Firm Undermining Iraqi Prime Minister

Sat Aug 25, 2007 12:17 am

The White House is aware of this, apparently,but hasn't as of yet, done anything about it, although they say they might.

I think it's astounding that a private law firm in the United States is engaging, in what I see, as an attempt to overthrow the leader of Iraq. It certainly doesn't help the White House in trying to right things in Iraq, and it certainly can't help an Iraqi government that is under fire for, according to some people, not doing enough to get Iraq pointed in the right direction.

Your thoughts?

Yes, Glen Greenwald has an interesting entry on his blog about this. It's sleazy to say the least.

And, now, this very person is returining to Iraq, and, from reading the article, it sounds like he wants to heap more problems on Iraq.
