The horrific event of 9/11 was in the background of this war and it was a terrorist attack initiated by Al-Qaeda but then President Bush and his administrations established Saddam Husain as the main accuse and used propaganda and public relation to make the U.S. citizen believe the same.  This present study will evaluate the step wise role of media and propaganda in Iraq war and try to evaluate the reasons of this war.
