In the lead up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, led by the Republican Bush Administration, the primary justification for the invasion was that Iraq possessed or was developing "Weapons of Mass Destruction", a claim that was later found to be unsubstantiated both by prior intelligence known to the administration and after the fact investigations.
