Reid Statement On The Death Of Saddam Hussein

Washington, DCIncoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement on the death of Saddam Hussein. "With the death of Saddam Hussein, a dark chapter in Iraq’s history is closed. He has received the justice he deserves for his crimes against his own people. Now, the Iraqi people have an opportunity to open a new chapter, by quelling the sectarian violence and building a nation for themselves. President Bush must implement a policy that ensures the Iraqi’s take responsibility for their own future and removes our troops from a dangerous civil war. Our troops have served bravely and superbly, but the Iraqis need to find a political settlement to guide their own future."
