Global Message


  • The President is pleased to have reached agreement today with the bipartisan House leadership on language for a joint congressional resolution on Iraq.

  • The security of our country is the commitment of both political parties, and the responsibility of both elected branches of government.

  • Recognizing that Saddam Hussein was a serious threat, Congress passed a strong resolution on Iraq in 1998. Four years later his regime is a grave and growing danger.

  • We will continue to work with our partners in the UN Security Council to secure a new resolution that pressures the Iraqi regime to respond to the requirements of the international community and makes clear the consequences of non-compliance.
