The first paragraph of Michael Tackett's "news analysis" of Bush's press conference in today's Chicago Tribune:
"On some occasions when the subject has been Iraq, President Bush clearly has been speaking to the world. This time, as he signaled more firmly than ever a path toward war, he seemed to be speaking pointedly to the American people."
The first paragraph of today's lead editorial in the Tribune:
"At the beginning of his televised press conference Thursday night, President Bush spoke less to the American people than to the 14 other nations that sit on the United Nations Security Council. The question the council faces now, Bush said, is whether Saddam Hussein has complied with international demands that he fully disarm."posted by Dan on 03.07.03 at 09:42 AM
