"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

AP's brief story, which gets two classic sentences in there:
Key members of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency reappointed Mohammed ElBaradei for a third term as head of the organization Monday after the Bush administration last week publicly dropped its opposition to him.

Washington had accused ElBaradei of being too mild on Iran and of trying to obstruct the invasion of Iraq by questioning U.S intelligence that asserted Saddam Hussein had a nuclear arms program.
Still, consensus approval of ElBaradei as director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency as delayed for several hours because of arguments over procedure.
Hehehe. Fair and balanced reporting, I suppose: If AP was going to make fun of the Bush administration for attacking ElBaradei for being, you know, right about our false intel, then I guess they have to make a "the UN bickers over nonsense a lot" joke.
