Robert Dreyfuss, author of "Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam," appeared on Democracy Now today. During his interview with host Amy Goodmam, Dreyfuss said of the worsening Iraqi situation:
"It can’t be righted. It’s virtually a hopeless situation. And so, now there are rumors all over the place, in Washington, in Baghdad, in other places, that there are forces trying to come up with a non-democratic solution, some sort of coup d'etat...."
Which leads Dada to ponder if that explains the sudden activation of James Baker by the Bush administration, particularly in light of his most successful orchestration of the 2000 U.S. coup d'etat.
