Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the scandal-ridden and feckless United Nations, who oversaw operations of the world body while Saddam Hussein plundered the Oil for Food program for his own benefit, and shared big bucks with a few select accomplices (possible including Annan’s son) now blames Great Britain and the Clinton Administration for the plundering of the program during the 90s.
Annan Thursday accused the United States and Great Britain of allowing Saddam Hussein to illegally export oil to Jordan and Turkey to make money outside the U.N. oil-for-food program. Only the U.S. and Britain had forces that could have stopped it at that time, Annan said, but they "decided to close their eyes to Turkey and Jordan because they are allies."
Buck-passing is alive and well at the hole in the State of New York otherwise known as the United Nations Secretariat. Annan’s pitiful attempt to blame others for his incompetent management of the U.N. and its programs is further evidence that he is not up to the task, and needs to go away.
