Baghdad / Obelisk: The writer David Ignatius said in an opinion article published by the American newspaper The Washington Post on November 8, 2021 that the last attempt to assassinate Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi shocked the Iraqis and its purpose was to undermine his role in running the country. 
The writer said that the attack was described as “cowardly”, by Al-Kazemi himself, and was condemned by the United Nations, the Biden administration and a wide range of Iraqi politicians, Iran and countries.

The writer said: I met Al-Kazemi in the small villa decorated with modern art only a few months ago, and it is the same one that was bombed.

 The writer considered that the attack was counterproductive, and its goal was to deprive Prime Minister Al-Kazemi of a second term, but its outcomes came in the opposite way, as it made his second term in office almost certain.

The writer saw that Al-Kazemi has been living in the crossfire since he took office in May 2020 and tried to direct a path between the United States and Iran.

The writer revealed that Al-Kazemi was about to start talks about forming a new government with Al-Sadr and other prominent politicians.
