“These people… keep their promises.”

Ali at Iraq the Model posted about the Iraq handover and Bremer’s speech to the Iraqi people. A notable excerpt:

Another friend approached me. This one was not religious but he was one of the conspiracy theory believers. He put his hands on my shoulders and said smiling, I must admit that I’m beginning to believe in what you’ve been telling us for months and I’m beginning to have faith in America. I never thought that they will hand us sovereignty in time. These people have shown that they keep their promises.

Is it just me or is this a far cry from the nightly news? It’s interesting reading, and fairly short; go read the whole thing.
