    LYONS: From sanctions to checkmate

    President Obama's "hat-in-hand" approach to Iran's new president, Hasan Rouhani, over Iran's nuclear-weapons program is not only degrading for America, but also for the office of the President of the United States. This comes on the heels of Mr. Obama being outmaneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin over Syria's chemical weapons, which clearly has weakened Mr. Obama's international image. However, our narcissistic president apparently is incapable of accepting that fact, as he was then rebuffed in a lunch that Mr. Rouhani refused to attend.

  • EDITORIAL: An opportunity for Iran

    Hasan Rouhani, Iran's new president, made his debut on the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "a framework for managing our differences." He didn't offer the olive branch President Obama wanted. If Tehran is genuinely interested in improving relations with the United States and the West, Mr. Rouhani and the ruling mullahs could prove it with a small gesture. He could free a Christian pastor who on Thursday marks his first anniversary as a political prisoner in Tehran's notoriously evil Evin Prison.

    The circus comes to town Tuesday, and the music from the Big Top, adorned with pretty flags and colorful banners, wafts across Manhattan's Turtle Bay neighborhood. The main attraction is the prospect of a meeting between President Obama and Hasan Rouhani, the new president of Iran. The credulous world pants in anticipation of a deal over Iran's rogue nuclear program, but expectations always crash in disappointment at the United Nations.

  • BOLTON: The myth of a United Nations

    The U.N. General Assembly's 68th session will open its annual "general debate" in New York on Tuesday, with leadoff speakers including President Obama and Iranian President Hasan Rouhani.

    Iranian president brushes away Obama's olive branch at U.N.

    President Obama used his annual address to the United Nations on Tuesday to say he sees an opening for diplomacy with Iran and would pursue a deal to stop the Islamic republic's pursuit of nuclear weapons — but his words were soon overshadowed by the handshake that wasn't.

    White House: Still no Obama-Rouhani meeting scheduled

    As President Obama arrived in New York ahead of his planned Tuesday speech to the U.N. General Assembly, a key outstanding question is whether he'll sit down with new Iranian President Hasan Rouhani, a meeting that potentially could signal a shift in relations between the two nations.

    KAHLILI: Obama's tone-deaf note to Iran

    President Obama is once again seeking rapprochement with the radicals who rule Iran with an iron fist, proving he is not learning from his mistakes. Another private letter to the regime's leaders urging better relations has already fallen on deaf ears, just as earlier attempts have.
