In a news conference on December 15, 2003, two days after the capture of Saddam Hussein, “the president [Bush] warned that ‘the terrorists in Iraq remain dangerous’ and ‘further sacrifice’ by U.S. troops would be required. ‘Yet it should now be clear to all,’ he said, that ‘Iraq is on the path to freedom. And a free Iraq will serve the peace and security of America and the world.’ ”
