President Bush picked a timely point to emphasize during his United Nations address today — that the United States respects Islam and seeks peace and freedom for the Middle East. His strong words for Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the Sudanese government’s role in the Darfur crisis also were welcome. The question is whether Bush’s appearance can move other nations to act decisively on either problem. Considering how off the mark Bush’s pre-Iraq war speech to the same body turned out to be, his credibility at the United Nations remains a problem.
