August 6, 2007: Text of Bush and Karzai conference (AP)

  • There’s still a fight going on, but I’m proud to report to the American people that the Afghan army is in the fight. The government’s in the fight, and the army’s in the fight.
  • Mr. President, I’m here today to, once again, thank you and the American people for all that you have done for Afghanistan: for our liberation first and then for our stability and prosperity.
  • I’ve been here many times before in America, thanking the American people for what they have given to Afghanistan. I’ve spoken of roads. I’ve spoken of schools. I’ve spoken of clinics. I’ve spoken of health services. I’ve spoken of education. I’ve spoken of agriculture. I’ve spoken of lots of achievements. I’ve also had requests for help that you have delivered to us.
