Secretary of State Colin Powell likes what he sees in Iraq.
While acknowledging a threat from terrorists bent on sabotaging Iraqi self rule, he says the winds of change are bringing a new vibrancy.
Although during a visit to Baghdad, Powell cautioned against rushing self-government.
Powell says ``it's necessary to stay with'' the task of forming a new government and helping the Iraqi people regain their independence.
Powell said at a news conference in Baghdad that the worst thing that could happen would be for the U.S. to push the process too fast and see it fail.
