To the Honorable Dick Cheney
United State Senate
In these fateful times that your country is going through as a result of the
barbaric terrorist aggressions targeting occupied buildings and in recognition
of the enormity of this crime and of its impact on your people, I wish to express
to you in my name and in that of the Members of the Council of the Nation, our
heartfelt sympathy with you and with the American People as it confronts the
painful consequences of this disaster.
We share your grief and your tragedy as you confront such lowly and despicable
attacks and we pray for all the victims of this tragedy expressing our condolences
to their families.
Mr. President, I pay tribute to the souls of all the victims of this abominable
crime and reiterate to you, to the Members of the Senate and to the American
people, the renewed expression of our sympathy.
I am convinced of your Great Countrys ability to alleviate the impact
of this tragedy and to overcome this national disaster.
Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration and
Mohamed Cherif Messadia
President of the Council of the Nation
