First charges come in Oil for Food scandal

Well, finally someone has been named as a criminal in the United Nations Oil for Food scam. The U.N.’s official investigation has yet to accuse anyone of committing a crime, and if past practice holds true, won’t.

But the U.S. Attorney’s office in Houston has charged three men, one an American businessman, one a permanent U.S. resident, and the third an man living in England.

Smart money says that no U.N. officials will be besmirched, let alone criminally charged, in this scandal. But at least the United States can say it conducted an investigation that actually found three people deserving of being charged.

The story from Fox News.
