One of the next big chapters in the United Nations oil-for-food scandal will involve the family of the secretary-general, Kofi Annan, whose son turns out to have been receiving payments as recently as early this year from a key contractor in the oil-for-food program.
The secretary-general's son, Kojo Annan, was previously reported to have worked for a Swiss-based company called Cotecna Inspection Services SA, which from 1998-2003 held a lucrative contract with the U.N. to monitor goods arriving in Saddam Hussein's Iraq under the oil-for-food program. But investigators are now looking into new information suggesting that the younger Annan received far more money over a much longer period, even after his compensation from Cotecna had reportedly ended.
The importance of this story involves not only undisclosed conflicts of interest, but the question of the role of the secretary-general himself, at a time when talk is starting to be heard around the U.N. that it is time for him to resign, and the staff labor union is in open rebellion against "senior management."

bttt for later read.
She puts the MSM to shame (not that it's a difficult thing to do).
Oh, they made such a big, moral noise! The United States was responsible for starving millions, they said! The United States was responsible for nothing short of genocide!
Little did the Leftist morons know that the entire thing was propaganda undertaken by Saddam Hussein. And little did the Leftist morons know that their fellow Leftists in Germany and France and China were more than willing to trade the suffering of the Iraqi children for cold, hard cash.
And now? The same moralistic gasbags have nothing to say.
Not true. The moralistic gasbags now say we should have continued the sanctions/inspection regime they used to condemn.
Just contemplate the thought of AlGore winning the election of '00 and watch your hair rapidly turn color!
The thought of Al Gore winning is what made my hair fall out!
Where is the "Halliburton-type" outrage and demand for investigation from the NYT, CBS, Hollywood, no-blood-for-oil peace activists, and the other "usual suspects"? Shame on the Annans and co. for using the UN as a front for their crimes.
Is that keyword of yours "Clinton soil for food"? That sounds like a fair trade - LOL
UN out of US ~ Now!
Their outrage is highly, highly selective.
Resign? No, sir, it's time for him to go to jail. Can you say "international tribunal?"
In our dreams!
Right on! If she doesn't get a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on this scandal, no one should get one again.
I like her.
See what Affirmative Action gets you?
Coffey Anonymous & Co., LLC* is just commiting the frauds France, Germany, Russia, & China hired them to commit.

No, that's what politicians of principle all over the world do, they divert bribes to close relatives so the can enjoy the fruits of their offices and yet still claiming to be honest. It is exactly the same pricipled approach that Tommie (The Commie) Dashole employs as he maintains his level of integrity by diverting all bribes to his wife, The Bag Lady.
