President Bush will address the United Nations Tuesday to ask for greater international support as the United States struggles to restore stability and self-government in Iraq. Bush's request will be complicated by tensions resulting from the U.S. decision to go to war in Iraq without the U.N. Security Council's approval. Hear NPR's Don Gonyea.
