ABSTRACT
The article presents a conspiracy theory concerning U.S. President George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq. It argues that the U.S.-led invasion failed to establish the supposed link between the terrorist group al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein and about Hussein's alleged willingness to use weapons of mass destruction (WMD) on his Mideast enemies. Conspiracy theorists further pointed out that the invasion was not about addressing a war on terror, but about securing oil fields and following directives of the New World Order.
