Hayder Abdulkarin and Athraa Hasoon are part of the Iraq-American Freedom Alliance, a group formed by a bipartisan Washington think tank touring the country in support of the war in Iraq.

Abdulkarin and Hasoon say the people of Iraq were like slaves under Saddam Hussein and now they feel a renewed hope and enthusiasm for life and the future.

Both Iraqis admit there is a lot of work to do if Iraq is to become a democracy, but they say as long as U.S. troops train and equip an effective Iraqi police force, the effort will be successful.
