Is the UN a Reactionary Institution?, asks Roger
And my answer is that the UN is, indeed, a reactionary institution that’s absurdly perpetuating the worst abuses against its own declarations of human rights and justice. Sudan, Cuba, and Lybia, Guinea and Togo, in the Human Rights Commission is a sample of its absurdity.
As to Kofi Annan, just two days ago, when asked about the UNScam investigation, he said one thing,
MR. RUSSERT: What if they don’t cooperate with the investigation? Will they be dismissed?
SEC’Y-GEN. ANNAN: They will be dismissed because they have to cooperate with the investigation.
so this morning the NY Post reports he does another,
The United Nations yesterday threw up a stone wall in the oil-for-food scandal, insisting that contracts between the world body and private companies should not be turned over to investigators.
In a defiant move that has infuriated probers, Secretary-General Kofi Annan threw his support behind a letter from former oil-for-food head Benon Sevan to officials of a Dutch company that inspected Iraqi oil shipments. The letter directed the company not to hand over documents to congressional committees and other “governmental authorities.”.
That’s a hypocrite for you.
