That is what David Warren seems to think:
Salam refers to the Americans slickly as the “puppet-masters.” He speaks approvingly of old Iraqi Communists organizing their poster (and subversion) campaigns, and is suddenly sympathetic when they happen to appropriate some office space. He mentions in passing linking up with a Western leftist group called “CIVIC” (Campaign for Innocent Victims In Conflict) to document civilian casualties from the U.S. invasion that liberated the country.
And this from a person who shows no guilt whatever at his own family membership in a Baathist regime that killed some hundreds of thousands of civilians — entirely on purpose. He dismisses all that as “a few bad apples,” without thinking to volunteer any sort of information on where such bad apples might now be hiding.
He builds a strong case.
