President George W. Bush on Sunday said Iraqis' vote on a new constitution was as a victory for opponents of terrorism. "The vote today in Iraq is in stark contrast to the attitude, the philosophy and strategy of al-Qaida, their terrorist friends and killers," Bush said as he arrived at the White House after a weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat. Bush congratulated Iraqis for successfully completing the balloting, saying that by all indications the turnout - and Sunni participation - was greater than in the last election earlier this year, and that there was less violence.
