The United States ' election in 2004 was based on a number of foreign policy myths. Three of the most obvious were:
- The war in Iraq was necessary as a response to the threat of international terrorism. As a result, the world is now a safer place;
- The institutions of the UN are corrupt and do nothing but restrict American power;
- Al Qaeda and international terrorism more generally are extremely significant threats to American national security
