Drive to rescue Iraq policy

According to the Washington Post, President Bush is set to embark on an "ambitious campaign" to refocus world attention on the future of Iraq, and away from the overwhelming tenor of bad news coming out of that country since the end of March. The initiative, notes Post reporter Robin Wright, will begin with "a tightly orchestrated public relations effort in a speech at the Army War College" tomorrow evening.

One of Bush's major points of emphasis will be the announcement of a new UN draft resolution that will allegedly give "full sovereignty" to the IGC on June 30.
