The President's Speech
By Mike Rappaport

Good speech by the President. Read it here from the transcript, because the media reports will fill it with attacks on Bush.

Here is a brief excerpt:

Helping construct a stable democracy after decades of dictatorship is a massive undertaking. Yet we have a great advantage. Whenever people are given a choice in the matter, they prefer lives of freedom to lives of fear. Our enemies in Iraq are good at filling hospitals, but they don't build any. The can incite men to murder and suicide but they cannot inspire men to live and hope and add to the progress of their country.
