President Bush was at his most impressive in delivering his anxiouslyawaited speech on Iraq to the General Assembly of the United Nations yesterday. In its clarity and restrained forcefulness it was reminiscent of his address to the US Congress a couple of weeks after the terrorist attacks on the United States last September. Unfortunately the content of the speech did not match its delivery; it was deeply disappointing. It consisted mainly of a listing of the many failures of the Iraq government to observe UN resolutions and of Saddam Hussein's lawless international behaviour. There was absolutely nothing new in this indictment.
