Bush Takes Iraq Case to Americans

Download Audio
photoPresident Bush addresses the nation tonight on Iraq. Congress prepares for debate later this week and a resolution authorizing military action is expected to pass.

The speech is aimed at Democrats who say President Bush has not yet made a clear case for deposing Saddam Hussein. The speech is also expected to try to appeal to other world powers to support a proposed United Nation's Security Council resolution, ordering Iraq to submit to weapons inspections at any place, any time.

Did President Bush make the case for military action?
