Kofi Covers Up "Oil for Food" Scandal

Courtesy, the New York Times reports that U.S. Senators are accusing Kofi Annan of blocking their fraud probe into the oil for food scandel.

Leaders of a United States Senate subcommittee investigating allegations of fraud in the oil-for-food program in Iraq have accused Kofi Annan, the United Nations secretary general, of obstructing their inquiry.
In a letter sent to Mr. Annan yesterday, the Republican chairman and ranking Democrat on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations charged that the secretary general and a panel he appointed to conduct an independent investigation into the charges of abuses appeared to be "affirmatively preventing" the Senate from getting documents from a former United Nations contractor that inspected goods bought by Iraq.

Keep in mind that the nations that most vehemently opposed the war were those who apparently were receiving the biggest kick backs from the corrupt program.

I am forced to recall the words of Robert Bork who said "there is no such thing as international law, only international politics."

In my view the UN is a morally bankrupt organization. Just look at who sits and has sat on its Human Rights Commission and Nuclear Watch Commission.
