ABSTRACT
Some members of U.S. President George W. Bush's administration have derived a simple moral from America's recent diplomatic fiasco: You shouldn't use the United Nations to pursue vital strategic goals. But the facts of the case suggest different lessons: You shouldn't use the United Nations in such a blatantly dishonest way as to insult the intelligence of the world; and you shouldn't exhibit so little tactical imagination that a nation such as France finds it easy to frustrate you; and you should especially avoid these mistakes when, as in this case, you could have used the United Nations to reach all of your essential goals.
