A Gentleman’s Coup


Well, actually, the fellows profiled in “The Wonga Coup” were anything but gentlemen, and someone apparently forgot to inform them that it isn’t the nineteenth century. But their attempt in 2004 to make a game out of a military coup in Equatorial Guinea, while enriching themselves with a pile of oil money, didn’t quite come off. Sounds like a really interesting read, and I’ll be adding it to my wishlist. Read the story in Salon. You’ll have to watch a short ad beforehand, but then you get unlimited access to the site.
