FoxNews reports: Rumsfeld: 85,000 Troops Going to Iraq.
Also: Bush Promotes Democracy in Middle East. I think there were serious problems in this speech, in particular Bush's complete excusing of Islam for the lack of freedom in the Middle East. But the overall theme was good.
"Sixty years of Western nations excusing and accommodating the lack of freedom in the Middle East did nothing to make us safe because in the long run stability cannot be purchased at the expense of liberty," Bush said.
