The article presents views of the author related to Operation Iraqi Freedom, which was held on March 19, 2003 by the U.S. government. In September 2002, the author's ship received orders to work up with other battle group for a probable deployment at the end of the year 2003. A year has passed since those heady days and he is forced to look at the role he played in Iraqi Freedom in a different light. The author, as a citizen of the U.S., holding his elected officials responsible for his country's leadership, seeks justification for the course of action taken by the U.S. government. He wishes to see those weapons of mass destruction, which the government claimed to be in Iraq's possession.
