In 2006, the United States military was actively engaged in the Iraq War, which began in 2003.
The main goal of the war was to remove Saddam Hussein from power and to eliminate weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) that were believed to be in the country.
By 2006, the initial invasion and overthrow of Saddam's government had been completed, and the focus of the war had shifted to counterinsurgency operations against various militant groups, including Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and the stabilization and reconstruction of the country.
In addition, the US and its allies were training and equipping Iraqi security forces to take over the responsibility for maintaining security and stability in the country.
