Here we go!
First 9/11 mention. We took out Afganistan! Yay! 2/3 of known leaders captured (don't mention Osama).
And on to Iraq. Ah, it was a humane war. Good to know. And it's only since 9/11 that terrorists have been stopped? Er, okay, we won't mention the Irish and Basque groups, shall we.
Decent and Democratic society! Except women can't go out alone at night. But hey.
Okay, he's not actually said anything yet. And dances around the point that a Free and Democratic Iraq could conceivably elect a party that promises to institute Sharia law...

Of course, the Governing Council is regarded as a joke by many Iraqis, but at least you're doing something.
Here comes the begging bowl 8-).
$87bn. Ow. And that's just for the next year. Colin gets to go to the other countries asking for money. He gets all the nice jobs.
More careful mingling of Iraq and 9/11.
Okay, that final pull away shot - very, very scary.
