Thank You Mr. President
And To The Glorious American People

The other day the Democratically elected President of Iraq, Jalal Talibani, gave an extraordinary speech, thanking the American people for what we have done for the Iraqis. From the Anchoress:

“In the name of Iraqi people, I say to you, Mr. President, and to the glorious American people, thank you, thank you. Thank you, because you liberated us from the worst kind of dictatorship.”

“Mr. President, you are a visionary, great statesman. We salute you. We are grateful to you. We will never forget what you have done for our people.”

All of us who supported the war have reason to be proud. America has done a great and historic thing.
