Mideast in turmoil 10 years after Iraq invasion that was supposed to bring freedom

CAIRO -- President George W. Bush kept it simple in his short television address the evening of March 19, 2003 -- U.S. forces had begun their campaign to unseat Saddam Hussein, he said. The goals, he outlined in his first sentence, were straightforward: "to disarm Iraq, to free its people, and to defend the world from grave danger." Some 522 words later he promised the result: "We will bring freedom to others and we will prevail."
