Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz comments upon arrival in Iraq

Presenter: Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz
October 24, 2003

Deputy Wolfowitz:  I am pleased to be here, again, in free Iraq.  I am in Iraq to thank our brave troops and their international partners who are fighting alongside courageous Iraqis - Iraqis, who in increasing numbers are putting their lives on the line to defend their country and to build a free, prosperous future of Iraqi self-rule.  They are taking the fight to the enemy, whose goal is to destroy the substantial progress being made here and take Iraq back to the prison of tyranny from which they’ve finally been liberated.  Thank you.
