Reuters AlertNet - Iraqis ready to vote, U.S. troops tell Bush

Reuters AlertNet - Iraqis ready to vote, U.S. troops tell Bush: "WASHINGTON, Oct 13 (Reuters) - A handpicked group of U.S. troops told President George W. Bush on Thursday they believed the Iraqi people were eager to vote in a weekend referendum on an Iraqi constitution.

In a carefully scripted event, Bush spoke to 10 U.S. troops and an Iraqi soldier in a video teleconference about preparations for the Saturday vote, which is critical to U.S. aims for democracy in Iraq and creating conditions for the ultimate withdrawal of American forces."

Bwahaha! Things are so great we have to script!
