WHAT WENT WRONG?
Synopsis of The White House serious mistakes in invading Iraq and poor judgment vis-Ã-vis the Iraqis and Arab people.
1- The Israeli intelligence, Mossad and other Israeli agencies;
2- The Christian Maronites (Mawarnah) sources in Lebanon;
3- The Christian Ashurians (Assyrians or Ashuris) in Iraq;
4- The Christian Syriac (Syrianis) in Syria;
5- The Christian Copts (Kouptis) in Egypt;
6- The military and intelligence observers in India;
7- The French agents operating in Greece, Morocco, Algeria, Tunis, the Middle East, the Near East and Asia Minor;

9- The Jews who emigrated from Tunisia, Morocco, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon to Israel and finally settled in the United States.
