Re: Layton's bid for power

Really Leyton's little operation reminded me a lot of the July 20 plot that was to take over Germany after they assassinated Hitler. The premise that the office of the Head of State is usurped by a military movement and that by controlling the Central Headquarters, the rest of the military will fall in line.

Granted both Operations had different goals and reasons, they both were in essence a plan to overthrow the head of state with a military junta to achieve their own goals. If both Sisko and Benteen remained completely loyal to Leyton I imagine others in the Federation would move against him and as soon as the truth gets out the people following Leyton would turn on him much as the Wehrmacht troops turned on the July 20 plotters when they discovered Hitler wasn't dead.
