The Multi-National Force Iraq (MNF I) was a military command, led by the United States, which was responsible for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Multi-National Force Iraq replaced the previous force, Combined Joint Task Force 7, on 15 May 2004, and was later itself reorganized into its successor, United States Forces Iraq, on 1 January 2010. The Force was significantly reinforced during the Iraq War troop surge of 2007. As of May 2011, all non-U.S. coalition members had withdrawn from Iraq.

Also in Iraq, but not part of MNF I, are the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq, which is doing humanitarian work, but has a number of guards and military observers, and the NATO Training Mission Iraq, training the Iraqi army and police force.
