Iraq election: CIA connected Iyad Allawi wins narrowly

A secular coalition led by Iyad Allawi narrowly won the most seats in this month’s Iraq parliamentary elections.

Dr. Allawi was nominated to be Iraq's interim prime minister by Iraq's U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council on May 28, 2004.

In 1996, he worked with the CIA to plot a coup that was to involve Iraqi army generals toppling Hussein.
