Dear President George W Bush,
On behalf of the people of Iraq, I would like to extend our most

sincere and deepest sympathy and condolences for the families of
those who died in the atrocity of September 11.
As victims of terror, we feel their pain. As committed fighters
against terrorism - our common enemy, we reaffirm that our resolve
to defeat the terrorists and promote the values of freedom, peace
and democracy in Iraq, will never be shaken.
On this sad and memorable day, I would like to reiterate the
gratitude of the people of Iraq for the people of America and for
your leadership.
The people of Iraq will never forget those who helped them in
getting rid of the most brutal and terrorist regime of Saddam
Hussein.

Sincerely Yours
Jalal Talabani
President of the Republic of Iraq
