Mobbs Close to Perle and Feith

a relative path: April 2003 Archives: "Movers and Shakers in Postwar Iraq
I was sent a link to an "outstanding article on the people and companies":http://www.sundayherald.com/33021 who stand to profit the most from the Iraqi reconstruction. A sample: bq. *Michael Mobbs* bq. Pentagon lawyer and overall civilian co-ordinator who will be in charge of 11 of the ministries. bq. Mobbs wants US citizens imprisoned indefinitely without charge for terrorist offences. A notorious hawk and close friend of Richard Perle, Mobbs also worked for Douglas Feith?s law firm. bq. Currently a Pentagon consultant, he created the legal framework for the indefinite detention of al-Qaeda suspects at Camp X-Ray in Guantanamo Bay, which was built by Bechtel (see The businesses) for $16m (?10m). Also a former member of the US arms control agency under former president Ronald Reagan. I think we owe it to ourselves to look long and hard at the new face of a America showing itself in the colonial administration of Iraq. Thanks Matt!"
