U.S. President Bush, in the first of a series of speeches preceding the June 30th transition to an Iraqi interim government, set out 5 steps to restore Iraqi sovereignty. These five steps include:
1) the transfer of authority to a sovereign Iraqi government,
2) the establishment of security in Iraq,
3) restoration of Iraq's infrastructure,
4) development of international support for a free Iraq, and
5) an orderly march toward Iraqi national elections.
The President's speech was set against a backdrop of falling numbers in U.S. opinion polls concerning the course of the Iraqi occupation. He set out to reassure the American public and the world that the Administration has an organized and workable plan for restoring Iraqi sovereignty.
The President is expected to give a series of addresses on Iraq in the weeks leading up to June 30th.
