New York (CNN) - New York (CNN) – I listened closely to President Obama's United Nations General Assembly speech. He certainly touched on most of the major international issues, although often he offered diplomatic nuances on sensitive subjects.

On Iran's nuclear program: "The Iranian government cannot demonstrate that its program is peaceful, has not met its obligations, and rejected offers that would provide it with peaceful nuclear power."
