Iraqis Show Confidence in Country's Future
Iraq Fact of the Day

Iraqis are increasingly optimistic as they move toward sovereignty on June 30. According to surveys conducted in mid-May, 63 percent of Iraqis believe that the interim government will improve life in Iraq. Confidence also extends to security forces: 87 percent say they are confident in the army and police force's ability to maintain security, and 51 percent say they are more interested in enlisting in the security forces than they were three months ago. These poll numbers underscore Iraqis' faith in the new Iraq and in the institutions that will lead the way to a free and democratic nation.
