Miracle in Iraq

It has been less than two years since the U.S. deposed Saddam Hussein. Now, we witness millions of our fellow human beings experience their birthright, Freedom, for the first time.

The polls in Iraq open shortly. Seventy percent of eligible Iraqi voters are expected to dip their fingers in purple ink and vote.

Two years ago, this was unthinkable. Two years ago, the fate of 26 million Iraqis was in the hands of a miserable tyrant and his psychotic sons. Now, that fate is in the hands of the Iraqi people themselves. Within two years of deposing the tyrant Hussein, the U.S. has affected this beautiful thing.

It is nothing short of a miracle.
