WSJ Editorial Calls For Kofi's Head
If all of these allegations are true, then I have to agree with Norm Coleman (R-Minn.), Kofi has to go. That being said, based on this passage, I wonder if Mr. Coleman has similar sentiments concerning the Red King.
While many questions concerning Oil-for-Food remain unanswered, one conclusion has become abundantly clear: Kofi Annan should resign. The decision to call for his resignation does not come easily, but I have arrived at this conclusion because the most extensive fraud in the history of the U.N. occurred on his watch. In addition, and perhaps more importantly, as long as Mr. Annan remains in charge, the world will never be able to learn the full extent of the bribes, kickbacks and under-the-table payments that took place under the U.N.'s collective nose.However, based on the type of nonsense that Coleman has offered up in the past, I'd expect nothing more than abject hypocrisy here.
(Thanks for the heads up Kramer.)
