President Obama Addresses the UN

On Tuesday, September 25, 2012, President Obama addressed the United Nations General Assembly for the last time before the election in November.

He used this time as an opportunity to criticize the anti-Islamic video that had created violent anti-American protests throughout the Middle East, but declared that no words are an excuse for murder, as in the case of the four State Department officials in Libya two weeks ago.

While ensuring that the international community knew that the video was not the work of the US Government, he reiterated that free speech is an integral part of ensuring freedom for all, and that stifling even hate speech, can easily lead to oppression.

President Obama stated that even though the United States would like a diplomatic solution to Iran’s nuclear program, the time to find one is not “unlimited.”  He also reiterated that the U.S would continue to push for peace talks between Israel and Palestine and stand with rebel Syrian forces against President Assad.
