q: you mean if they had asked us out, that we would have left?

mr. mcclellan: no, helen, i'm talking about today. we are there at their invitation. they are sovereign governemnts --

q: i'm talking about today, too.

mr. mcclellan: -- and we are doing all we can to train and equip their security forces so that they can provide for their own security as they move forward on a free and democratic future.

mr. mcclellan: go ahead, steve...
