This is who the left and almost President Monsieur Kerry would have had us taking orders from?
THINK ABOUT THIS..............the implications are staggering and wildly frightening.
"Fraud in the U.N. oil-for-food scheme for Iraq reached from French politicians to a former Vatican aide and name-brand companies, sending a sobering message about the state of global business," The Associated Press reports. In the Cato Policy Analysis "A Miasma of Corruption: The United Nations at 50," Stefan Halper, a former White House and State Department official, argues that "[a]t the heart of the organization's mounting problems is an almost total lack of accountability, which gives rise to suspicions of wholesale corruption."
The IHC story suggests that the U.N.'s failures of governance are not confined to such special projects as the Oil for Food program. If anything, Oil for Food looks more and more like a large outcropping of U.N. business as usual. And as with Oil for Food, which ran from December 1996 until the fall of Saddam in 2003, the timeline of IHC business with the U.N. starts in December 1996. That was the month before Kofi Annan took over as secretary-general, and it is on his watch that the IHC-U.N. tale has unfolded.
PS The Libby indictment is a distraction from the real issues of the day, bottom line. It's bullshit.
