It is not clear if G-d's hand working mysteriously here or something else going on.
Ironically this news from WaPo that wrote 27 editorials supporting Iraq war invasion.

IRBIL, Iraq — Ahmed Chalabi, a well-connected Iraqi exile whose false claims about Saddam Hussein’s arsenal helped spur the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, has died of a heart attack, Iraqi state media said Tuesday.
He was found dead in his home in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday, according to Ali Yaseen, his driver. Chalabi was 71.
Chalabi political fortunes rode on the coat tails of a war — and the years of bloodshed and unrest that followed — that many claim he helped spark as a trusted and well-paid adviser to American political and military decision makers.
