Saving the U.N. from itself!
At least somebody thinks the U.N. is important:
"The credibility of the United Nations would have been in tatters," she told the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations.
"The effectiveness of the Security Council as an instrument of enforcing the will of the world and of keeping the peace would have been weakened."
Thing is, that's NSA Condi talking, about if Saddam were still in power. I guess the tatters the administration is making are the good tatters.
