“The capture of this evil dictator is a victory for the Iraqi people, for America’s troops, and for the cause of freedom around the world.
His capture illustrates the courage, bravery, and success our troops display everyday. I pray that Saddam’s capture will make our soldiers safer on the ground.
Our work is not yet complete. We still need a plan to protect our troops, gain international support, complete our mission in Iraq, and win the global War on Terror. I hope we seize this opportunity to begin a new chapter in the future of Iraq.”
