I hope we continue to assist Iraq by all means possible, particularly in rebuilding the rule of law. I want to place on record an e-mail that I received a few days ago from the very brave judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death:

"I am...former chief investigative judge in the Iraqi High Tribunal...I am writing today after a long time to say thank you very much for your help"- which means this country's help-

"to restore the Iraqi justice and rule of law. Without your support we could not have done what we did."
