The United Nations General Assembly is now about halfway through its 41st year. The regular session, which convened in early September, ended on December 19. That session is notable, from an American perspective, for how poorly it has treated the U.S. and U.S. interests. When the 41st General Assembly convened, there were hopes that the U.N. was about to begin the long-overdue process of fundamental reform. These hopes were unfulfilled.
