How do you know the U.N. Oil for Food scandal is real?

Annan: US, UK Also Bear Blame in Oil, Food Scandal

Because Kofi's trying to weasel out of culpability by blaming someone else, of course!

The article is one long series of finger-pointings, with the sort of Annan-whininess that has all the lasting importance of a toddler slapfight.

Okay, big boy--you want the U.S. and Britain to really be in charge? Get out of the way and let us run things. Don't like it when the U.S. and Britain don't do what you think is their job? Stand up and say something.

Kinda like what Lee Iacocca used to say--'lead, follow, or get out of the way.'

Hey that comments thing thru the permalink works. You are so good! btw - I was actually going to comment on the wild wacky world of kofinistan. I'm just taking a wild guess here but instead of focusing on the many other UN folks who robbed and stole from the Iraqi people but who have diplomadic immunity unless the UN undoes the immunity the whole focus of the MSM will be on the one American of the caucasion variety. I'm just waiting for the frothing of the NYT's and LAT's and then CBS/NBC/ABC/CNN.

At least now it won't be ignored.
