I think this was written just to make the SOTU look truthful by comparison. Viceroy Paul Bremer packs a huge lie per sentence quotient into his op-ed in today's NY Times.

As President Bush has made clear, we are committed to establishing the conditions for security, prosperity and democracy. America has no designs on Iraq and its wealth. We will finish our job here and stay not one day longer than necessary.
Once our work is over, the reward will be great: a free, democratic and independent Iraq that stands not as a threat to its neighbors or the world, but as a beacon of freedom and justice.

Excuse me, Mr. Viceroy sir, but we've had troops in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for over a decade, and democracy hasn't even started to break out in those places. You, sir, are a liar.
