With a statement by yours truly!

Wait, you're letting yourself be associated with that criminal? Dude, you're not getting any younger, and getting your reputation back after Kofi trashes it could take decades!

:D :D

I'd take you seriously if I thought he had written that statement himself!

Who wrote it is irrelevant, just ask Dan Rather.

Kofi says it and 50% of the thinking world assumes it's a lie. :(

Sad but true.

That would apply to Darfur too then? He made a major statement on that too this weekend.

Everything he says is tainted after oil-for-food and the peacekeeper sex abuse fiascoes. IMO he and his crew can't go fast enough.

If the same idea were applied to all political corruption and abuse scandals, there would be almost no politicians left in the world - and I would like many of them on both sides of the Atlantic and Pacific to thus go faster than fast enough. The world would thus be a better place.

I don't understand why Annan should be singled out while many committing far worse crimes are praised.

Because he has a history of turning a blind eye to those that are politically correct, family or financially connected to his cronies? Being in a position to stop that portion of corruption in the UN itself and not doing anything about it doesn't gain you any friends, especially among those paying 20% of the tab :mad:

It doesn't help that the UN is, in the words of Amb. Bolton, a "target rich environment". Keeping track of just the Kofi-isms is a full-time job.
