His 10 years in power have been a monumental failure, and he leaves behind an institution whose standing could barely be lower and a legacy that is a testament to mismanagement, corruption, and anti-Americanism. Over the past 12 years, the U.N. has been dominated by scandal, division, and failure. From the disaster of the U.N. peacekeeping missions in Rwanda and Bosnia in the mid-1990s to the U.N.'s slow response to the Sudan genocide, its recent track record has been spectacularly unimpressive. His successor will inherit a U.N. whose image has slipped to an all-time low. The Oil-for-Food and Congo peacekeeping scandals have had a devastating impact on the U.N.'s reputation and have reinforced the view that the world body is riddled with corruption and mismanagement, as well as undisciplined in its peacekeeping operations. The failure of the U.N. Commission on Human Rightsnow the U.N. Human Rights Councilwhich was populated with some of the world's worst human rights violators, has added to the U.N.'s poor image. In addition, the tensions between Washington and Turtle Bay over the war in Iraq have contributed to bringing U.S.U.N. relations to their lowest point in a generation.
These are SOME of the highlights.... This guy is despicable.

( We can do this ..We must do this...Donald Rumsfeld)
I hope this crook is deported or escorted out of the U.S.A. on the 1st plane out to his country. I don't think he should ever be allowed to step foot into our country again unless its to be placed in jail for being a thief. You are so right.....This guy is despicable. I don't care too much for the UN either anymore. I wish they would move out of NYC to another country.
