How our seedy, corrupt Washington establishment operates

Who else but trusted Zelikow to do the administrations bidding.
From the 9/11 rapport to coup d’etats; it’s all in a days work for Condi’s close friend and confident.
I’m sure they have someone waiting in the wings: the new “Strongman” ready to sign the oil law, that will enable Big oil and the Bush cabal to make more monstrous profits.

(Updated belowUpdate IIUpdate III) ***** Update IV – with statement from ABC News re: Zelikow)

Over the past several weeks, there has arisen a palpable and coordinated shift among the Washington establishment to blame Iraq’s problems on Prime Minister Maliki and to suggest that salvation lies in his replacement. The only real alternative ever identified is former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi.

Fred Hiatt turned his Op-Ed page over to Allawi two weeks ago to argue — in the most establishment-pleasing tones — that “Responsibility for the current mess in Iraq rests primarily with the Iraqi government” and that “Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has failed to take advantage of the Iraqi people’s desire for peaceful and productive lives and of the enormous commitment and sacrifices made by the United States and other nations.” In other words, our wise Washington Leaders have done the Right and Good thing in Iraq, but that scoundrel Maliki is the key impediment preventing Success.
