Who's Behind "Allawi-for-Iraq.com"?
IraqSlogger reports that on August 17, White House-connected lobby powerhouse, Barbour Griffith & Rogers (BGR), purchased a domain name, Allawi-for-Iraq.com.*...
The timing was interesting. As Slogger's Christina Davidson reports, former Iraqi prime minister Ayad "Allawi argued in an August 18 Washington Post op-ed that Iraq will descend into chaos unless Maliki is replaced as prime minister."
Presumably, replaced by himself, he might have been hinting.
A couple months ago, I reported here on BGR's lobbying for another of Iraq's players, the Kurdistan Regional Government.
*Update: Whois registration for the Allawi domain below the fold:
