Operation 'Iraqi Freedom' Begins In Iraq

Historical Events

Two hours after a deadline for Saddam Hussein and his two sons expired George W. Bush opened the war on Iraq with a cruse missile strike on a home in Baghdad where Saddam was believed to have been along with one or more of his sons. The attack began shortly after 6:00 am on March 20, 2003 and was followed up with a limited invasion by Army and Navy forces moving into Iraq from Kuwait. These initial strikes were followed up by a heavy aerial bombardment and full invasion two days later.
