President Barack Obama will tell world leaders the United States "will never retreat from the world" when he speaks at the UN General Assembly, the White House said on Monday, UPI reported.
Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Obama will offer context to the international situation and put forward a vision of U.S. leadership.
He will also send a clear message that the United States will never retreat from the world, Carney said, according to UPI. "The United States will bring justice to those who harm Americans and the United States will stand strongly for our democratic values abroad."

Obamas speech will also address Iran, Carney emphasized.

That’s Obama’s idea of Justice.
This clown would be laughable if he weren’t so pathetic.
Shouldn’t that be islamic unrest.
I would more expect him to say “allah ahkbar!”
Laughable? Pathetic? People will die because of him. They already have, and recently, too. He’s a joke that isn’t funny. He’s bathos undeserving of pity.
That is why he fits right in with the OIC’s UN and wants to run them down our throat!
What it will amount to is a presidential endorsement of anyone else but obama.
