Weapons of Mass
Destructon (WMD)

One of the main reasons for the invasion of Iraq was the suspected presence of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by Iraq and the possibilities that these weapons would be transferred to terrorist groups. The intelligence community assessed that the WMD did exist and were potentially dangerous to the United States - especially in light of the recent terrorist attacks of 9/11. Despite an intensive search throughout Iraq for WMD there was not much evidenced gathered to indicate a robust WMD program.
