Al-Maliki to be toppled by a military coup organised by the CIA?

Al-Maliki

The US government wants to keep its military bases and some of its troops in Iraq.

The Iraqi prime minister Al-Maliki reportedly wants the Americans out. (Maliki Demands All U.S. Troops Pull Out by 2011 - washingtonpost.com)

According to Al-Ahram weekly, 11 September 2008, Al-Maliki may soon be toppled by a military coup organised by the CIA.

Spies taking the heat

Bob Woodward, in his book 'The War Within: A Secret White House History, 2006-2008', quotes many sources who say US intelligence agencies spy on Iraqi prime minister Al-Maliki

On 8 September 2008, Osama Al-Najafi, in London-based newspaper Al-Hayat, wrote that "US troops are not subject to Iraqi law. They control everything in Iraq. They control security and all kinds of communications, wireless or not. Almost all senior Iraqi politicians move under their direct security protection. If this is not spying, then what is it exactly?" (Spies taking the heat)

The Iraqi media has now begun to write about a "potential" US-backed military coup to overthrow Al-Maliki's government. (Spies taking the heat)

On 8 September 2008, Bassim Al-Sheikh, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper Addustour, quoted Iraqi vice-president, Adel Abdul-Mahdi suggesting that, "Baghdad is aware of a secret plot to oust the current government through a military coup...

"With the Americans growing more frustrated about the prospects of the political process in Iraq, they might overlook a military coup that promises to stabilise Iraq and broaden the political map," (Spies taking the heat)
