The Women of Daash:

Short Analysis: 1700 dead Shia service men, who is responsible? Daash or Maliki?
This is a very short analysis. But the links are very interesting. This first explains the fall of Northern Iraq and the complete mismanagement by Maliki. Maliki has tried to conceal his complete incompetence by referring to it as a conspiracy:
This second talks about the way in which the 1700 Shia service men were executed. As commander of the Iraqi Security Forces and after having the power and authority to pick his commanders, Maliki is directly responsible for the manner in which the base was evacuated and the 1700 recruits literally led to their deaths.
In the last part of this article it can be seen how Maliki is still trying to hold on to power by pushing his favourites for key ministries:
I am glad Maliki has gone. But if one of my relatives had died at Spykar because of this bureaucrat’s incompetence, I would want to take more than just power from him.
