Our dictator

January 6, 2013 - Harry Eagar
From time to time, I state the obvious, that Bush lost both his wars. Other voices, mostly outside the United States, are beginning to say so, too.

For example, Abdul Rahman al-Rashad. (Follow link)

Iraq has virtually disappeared from American press reports, so you may not know this:

"It is important to note that Maliki’s position is unrivalled by any president or king, possibly anywhere else in the world, for he has sole authority over all key ministries and entities including security, intelligence, the armed forces, finance, the central bank, the media, the judiciary, and the policy of “de-baathification.” Currently, he is trying to seize control of the anti-corruption bodies, and the list goes on.

"When the deputy prime minister said in an interview with CNN that al-Maliki was a dictator, he was immediately dismissed. When al-Maliki fell out with Vice President Tarek al-Hashimi, he accused him of terrorism and conspiracy, and jailed his bodyguards."
