President Bush addresses the United Nations Tuesday. He's expected to use his annual address to the world body to appeal for assistance with the growing military and financial burdens on the United States in trying to stabilize 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 Vicky O'Hara.
