Warren Hoge writes in the New York Times: "Secretary General Kofi Annan opened the annual United Nations debate of world leaders on Tuesday with a plea for greater observance of international law and a reminder of his misgivings about the legality of the American-led war in Iraq.

" 'Those who seek to bestow legitimacy must themselves embody it, and those who invoke international law must themselves submit to it,' he told the audience of delegates in the General Assembly hall, which included President Bush and Ayad Allawi, the interim Iraqi prime minister."
