ABSTRACT
This article raises the question of national security in Iraq since the United States got involved. Police Sgt. Khalaf Abbas described to the Associated Press one of the multiple car bombs that ripped through Baghdad last week, as insurgents stepped up the level of violence following the appointment of cabinet members to the interim Iraqi government. The deterioration of Iraq serves as an unmistakable reminder of the flawed manner in which we carried out this mission. A global democracy works only when countries trust one another. America's insistence on burrowing into Iraq without substantial proof that they possessed weapons of mass destruction frayed that trust, and will inevitably sew problems into our foreign relations endeavors for decades. Going into Iraq forced the Saudi government to stop funneling billions of dollars to Wahabist fanatics
