For honest clarity, Times September 26, 2007 article title "Iran President Vows to Ignore U.N. Measures" should read "Vows to Ignore U.N.SECURITY COUNCIL Measures." (The U.S. dominated Security Council is being arm twisted to  completely discount the Iran supporting findings of the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency.)

The Times article inside text is very clear on this, it reads:

He said Iran would from now on consider the nuclear issue not a “political” one for the Security Council, but a “technical” one to be decided by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog.

Mr. Ahmadinejad’s assertion that the matter belonged with the nuclear agency indicated his preference to work with Mohamed ElBaradei, its director.

Dr. ElBaradei has been at odds with Washington, and some European powers, who have accused him of meddling in the diplomacy by seeking separate accords with Iran, and in their eyes undercutting the Security Council resolutions."

The title makes for a false report of an Ahmadinejad flaunting the U.N. during his address to the U.N. General Assembly.

As millions of readers read titles more often than inside text, the effect of this article's title is to promote the Bush administration nuclear weapon scare and make its option to bomb Iran acceptable.

Sorrowfully, misleading, war accepting titles of articles which contain accurate information to the contrary is not is not uncommon for the New York Times.

A reader can over the years notice that this is a way for the Times to keep its reputation as the US newspaper of record, while satisfying a 'conservative' corporate tilt in favor of justifying predatory wars. (and later turn editorially against wars that are going badly)

In the meantime, TV soundbites echo the Times' factually distorting headline.
