 Bush Hails Growth of Political Activity in Iraq - US Department of State
President Bush on December 12 hailed the political transformation that Iraq has achieved, but cautioned that Iraq still faces significant challenges as it seeks to consolidate its nascent democracy.
The president outlined the common foundations of successful democratic societies, which he identified as the rule of law, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, a free economy and freedom to worship.  He said almost none of these basic foundations existed when coalition forces arrived in Iraq in March 2003.
Bush stressed that the December 15 elections would not be the end of the process as Iraq continues to face serious challenges in domestic security, inclusive governance, national reconciliation and foreign threats.
