George W. Bush and His Evil Twin: Which One Is in Charge Today?

Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Oct2003, Vol. 22 Issue 8, p11
U.S. President George W. Bush kicked off a weekend of hard-driving pre-Labor Day political events that included speeches by Vice President Richard Cheney and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice as well. In his speech to the American Legion Convention in Saint Louis, Montreal, the president highlighted the accomplishments of America's military in Iraq. Defending his foreign policy, President Bush suggested that pacifying Iraq, hunting down al-Qaeda, and bringing peace to the Middle East are all part of a larger struggle against terrorists fearful of democracy and civilized values. The president summarized progress to date in Iraq: 200 raids, 1,100 detainees, 8,200 tons of ammunition and thousands of weapons seized, 42 of the most-wanted Iraqi leaders captured or killed, 38,000 Iraqis hired as police officers and 31 countries contributing 21,000 troops to the efforts in Iraq.
