[casi] 100 Days Toward Security and Freedom!

Dear List,

The White House (white stands for white-washing, I
guess), has published a special report on Iraq:

"Results in Iraq: 100 Days Toward Security and

If the book is to be read from its title as is said,
then this report is no exception: an excellent example
of lying and deception.

The Introduction states:

"August 8, 2003, marks the hundredth day since the end
of major combat operations in Iraq. Results in Iraq:
100 Days Toward Security and Freedom presents
highlights of the successes shared by post-Saddam
Iraqis and their partners in the renewal of their
nation. Under the leadership of the Coalition
Provisional Authority (CPA) and the new Iraqi
Governing Council, major strides are being planned and
made in three key areas: security, economic stability
and growth, and democracy. As this report is issued,
the CPA is working with Iraqis to implement a
strategic plan with measurable goals. Outside
observers and coalition leaders agree that much
remains to be done to restore order and bring
prosperity to a brutalized society and an
infrastructure suffering from decades of malign
neglect. The steps toward sovereignty and democracy
will be difficult and require patience and time.
Substantial progress is being made on all fronts. As
President Bush said last week, the "success of a free
Iraq will ... demonstrate to other countries in that
region that national prosperity and dignity are found
in representative government and free institutions....
As freedom advances in the Middle East, those
societies will be less likely to produce ideologies of
hatred and produce recruits for terror." This report
focuses on 10 areas where the liberation of Iraq has
improved the lives of Iraqis and the safety and
security of the world. Some examples in this report

1. For the first time in the lives of most Iraqis, a
representative government is being established and
human rights and freedom are being enshrined.

2. Nearly 3 dozen countries are contributing
financially to the renewal of Iraq, and 19 countries
are providing personnel for Operation Iraqi Freedom.

3. The food distribution system is functioning, based
on equitable needs rather than cronyism.

4. Nearly all Iraqi children have finished exams from
last year. All universities are open.

5. A $53 million program to rehabilitate more than 100
schools and clinics is underway.
