You have to wonder why there are not loads of journalist out trying to dig to the bottom of this important story. All I know is that there aren't many who even care much about it or the implications of it.
Thank goodness for real journalists like Claudia Rosett who--if there were any justice in the world-- would be the recipient of both the Pulitzer prize for reporting, and the the Nobel Prize for Peace. Her persistance and courage in sticking with a story that will have the farthest-reaching consequences of any in our time is incredible.
Just think for a minute about what the UN Oil for Food Scandal tells us about the world body that the Left has entrusted with its hopes and dreams for world peace. Just note for a moment the lack of interest of most MSM news outlets in this story. Just read the link above to see how Rosett has uncovered connections between Saddam, Al Qaeda, and the UN.
People died and the UN lied. People starved, and the UN let them; while pocketing blood money from Saddam. Where are the protestors? Where is ANSWER? Where is the Left? Where is Kos (well, at least we know where the last two are--chortling hysterically about their eagerly anticipated early "Fitzmas" but just a wee bit anxious that they may only get a lump of coal)
The UN has really raised the bar for future generations by taking corruption and greed to unimaginable levels; while at the same time excelling in the category of cynical and self-serving rhetoric. Never in the history of the world has there ever been an organization--ostensibly devoted to the pursuit of peace-- that has encouraged and enabled so much of the opposite.
There is no question that the world would be a far better place without the UN and its leeches sucking it dry. Nobel Peace Prize for El Baradei and the UN? Surely that must be one of the biggest jokes in human history.
The UN is the REAL scandal of our times.
