ABSTRACT
An analysis of the article, "What We Left Behind," written by Dexter Filkins for the New Yorker is presented. It alleges Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who the U.S. helped install, and his Shiite government is just slightly less worse than the deposed Saddam Hussein. It details the Prime Minister's alleged attacks against Sunnis including the shelling of the cities Falluja and Ramadi to clear it of protesters, and an attack against protesters in the Sunni town of Hawija.
