A year after the war in Iraq began, is the world on its way to becoming a safer place?
Asked at Buford M. Watson Jr. Park on March 22, 2004
“Yes. The capture of Saddam Hussein was very big. It’s a much safer place with him off the streets. And the global terrorist threat is diminished, but not gone.”
“No, I don’t think it’s a safer place. I think we’re on our way to hell in a handbasket by Federal Express.”
“The world is becoming a safer place, but it will get worse before it gets better. We took the initiative. We’ve taken the steps to get done what needs to be done, but it will take time.”
“I think so. It shows people that we’re not going to let people bomb us or stand for terrorism.”
