ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the commitment of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to the war in Iraq following the 2004 presidential elections. The administration found out that aluminum tubes are among the evidence that former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was determined to develop a nuclear weapon that will cause mass destruction. The pre-election damage-control effort of the government might have misrepresented intelligence information on war. The Senate Intelligence Committee conducted an investigation into the development of weapons of mass destruction.
