The President Cites Tal Afar

The full text of the excellent speech on Iraq President Bush gave in Cleveland yesterday is available here. The centerpiece of the speech was an extended narrative of events in Tal Afar (or Tall ‘Afar), which coalition forces recently liberated from the grip of al Qaeda. President Bush quoted briefly from the inspiring letter of thanks that the Mayor of Tal Afar wrote to the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment. We wrote about the liberation of Tal Afar and quoted the Mayor’s letter in full here. I think the blogosphere deserves some credit for spreading the word about this important story.
