Has There Been a Coup d’État in Iraq?

The following post appeared on Zappy’s blog this morning. I thought it was worth passing along. The specific post is here, where you can also read additional comments from Iraqis “on the ground.”

Well rumors go like wildfires in Iraq, especially when the prime minister declares a sudden curfew in his capital, I mean what other cause could it be?

Yesterday at approximately 11:00 P.M. the Secretary of the Iraqi Prime minister announced that Baghdad would be under lockdown from the night of Friday (yesterday) to 6:00 A.M. Sunday, this announcement was not explained, the “Al Alam” Satellite News Channel (Iranian) called the deputy minister of interior at 1:00 A.M. this Morning live on T.V. and when asked about the Curfew he answered “Duh? What Curfew?”

Now what should a simple average citizen think is going on?

Rumor has it that there was a Coup d’é·tat last night.

In other “undeclared” news last night their was heavy fighting after the “Seligh” neighborhood” was rained with Mortars by an “unknown” source, the U.S. Apache helicopters filled the skies with flares and not a single news agency announced this.

And to make things worse subtitles on different News agencies said that “A Major player in the Iraqi Parliament had his house checked and found was a car bomb factory”.

What’s going on? What’s true and what’s false?

Are we in a “Wilayat Bateekh”?”
