ABSTRACT
This article reports that U.S. President George W. Bush is insistent that the situation in Iraq is improving and the freedom promised to Iraqi citizens will finally be delivered with the holding of democratic elections later this month. All the evidence however, is to the contrary, the situation in Iraq is not improving. American and Iraqi public diplomacy went into a high-spin, trying to sell an increasingly sceptical world opinion the idea of supporting an Iraqi general election scheduled for January 30, the first of its kind in 50 years. A wave of attacks that included car bombings in Baghdad and Mosul left 40 people dead, prompting Lakhdar Brahimi, a special advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and until recently his top envoy in Iraq, to cast doubt on whether the landmark 30 January vote could take place, due to lack of security.
