“ One might think Annan far too compromised to become secretary-general
but the UN doesn't work that way. Instead of being forced to resign
after Rwanda and Srebrenica, he was promoted to the post.
“That is the culture of the UN: believe the best of barbarians,
do nothing to provoke controversy among superiors, and let others be
the butt of criticism afterwards. Even subsequent revelations about
Annan's responsibility for the disasters in Rwanda and Bosnia did not
affect his standing. On the contrary, he was unanimously re-elected
and awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
“ Now, despite revelations about bribery in the UN's oil-for-food
program for Iraq, the world is clamouring to entrust Annan with the
future of more than 20 million Iraqis who survived Saddam Hussein dictatorship.
That is because of who Annan is and what the UN has become: an institution
in which no shortcoming, it seems, goes un rewarded.”
note that there are reports regarding the rwanda massacres
that annan was probably bribed by the hutu leadership.. yet another
internal investigation that will probably never see the light of day.
in the unscam matter, his son, kojo, is very highly implicated..
unscam being probably the biggest financial fraud in world history.
