Bush’s five steps for Iraq

by on May 24th, 2004


  • Handing over authority to a sovereign Iraqi government.
  • Establishing security.
  • Continuing to rebuild Iraq’s infrastructure.
  • Encouraging more international support.
  • Moving toward a national election in Iraq that “will bring forward new leaders empowered by the Iraqi people.”

Bush said the 138,000 American troops now in Iraq will remain at that level as long as necessary. If commanders need more, Bush said, “I will send them.”
