Maliki Should Worry
It is a rare thing to actually hear a U.S. President admit to participation in murder, but that is eactly what President Lyndon Johnson does in a very frank November 1, 1966 discussion with Eugene Carthy:
"They started on me with Diem, you remember, He was corrupt and he ought to be killed.' So we killed him. We all got together and got a goddamn bunch of thugs and assassinated him. Now, we've really had no political stability since then."
