"The Iraqi people are now free. And they do not have to worry about the secret police coming after them in the middle of the night, and they don't have to worry about their husbands and brothers being taken off and shot, or their wives being taken to rape rooms. Those days are over."Paul Bremer, Administrator, Coalition Provisional Authority, Sept. 2, 2003

"Iraq is free of rape rooms and torture chambers."President Bush, remarks to 2003 Republican National Committee Presidential Gala, Oct. 8, 2003

My opponent admits that Saddam Hussein was a threat -- he just didn't support my decision to remove Saddam from power. (Laughter.) Maybe he was hoping Saddam would lose the next Iraqi election. (Laughter.) We showed the dictator and a watching world that America means what it says. (Applause.) Because our coalition acted, Saddam's torture chambers are closed. Because we acted, Iraq's weapons programs are ended forever. Because we acted, nations like Libya got the message and have voluntarily disarmed. (Applause.) Because we acted, an example of democracy is rising at the very heart of the Middle East. Because we acted, the world is more free, and America is more secure. (Applause.)

Edit:
and not to forget Rummy:

SEC. RUMSFELD: I'm not in the position to say whether -- there are other allegations of abuse. That is a pattern and a practice of terrorists, to allege abuse. We've seen that in their training, that they do that. So I can't say whether or not there have been any other allegations or charges of abuse with respect to those two facilities. But no, it had only to do with my interest and desire in being -- trying to be inclusive, to see that we had looked at every possible area that conceivably could lend itself to this type of problem.
