The Defenders of Democracy

Mizgin, who writes the superb blog, Rasti, has a regular guest spot called Mizgin's Desk at 123 Real Change.

Her latest piece uses the hook of the recent elections in Kyrgyzstan to discuss US efforts to Islamicize Central Asia, spearheaded by Fethullah Gulen. Read the whole thing. A typically great piece by Mizgin. Well done.

For more background, read these two pieces of mine from July, 2008:
Court Documents Shed Light on CIA Illegal Operations in Central Asia Using Islam & Madrassas and
The Central Asia Islamization Cocktail: Mosques, Madrassas, Heroin & Terrorism
