Delivered from evil

The new ambassador from Afghanistan is thankful that the United States liberated his country from the murderous rule of the Taliban regime, which sheltered Osama bin Laden's terrorist network.

Ambassador Said Tayeb Jawad, who presented his diplomatic credentials at the White House last week, told President Bush that his main mission is to advance U.S.-Afghan relations and strengthen the "historic friendship between our two people."
"I am honored to stand before you at this historic juncture, as we embark to accelerate, with your support, the successful process of solidifying peace and reconstruction in Afghanistan," Mr. Jawad said.

"We are grateful for the leadership provided by the United States of America in emancipating our country from the evil forces of terrorism, tyranny and Taliban.
"We cherish the close cooperation and enduring partnership forged between our two nations."
Mr. Jawad said the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai wants to build a "constitutional state that guarantees the safety and security of its citizens, promotes democracy, protects human rights, advocates the rule of law and provides for sustained economic growth."
