More information on Koffi Annan's family involvement
in the illegal activities associated with the UN and the
illegal Oil for Food thefts. Kofi continues to drag his
feet and block investigation attempts into this area.

Whenever Annan gets on camera and says anything
about 'values' or about America participating in
'illegal activities' in Iraq ... ya' just want to burst out
laughing at the hypocrit! He's as dirty as they come.

Annan's Son Took Payments Through 2004

The New York Sun
BY CLAUDIA ROSETT - Special to the Sun

(excerpt)
One of the next big chapters in the United Nations oil-for-food scandal will involve the family of the secretary-general, Kofi Annan, whose son turns out to have been receiving payments as recently as early this year from a key contractor in the oil-for-food program.

The secretary-general's son, Kojo Annan, was previously reported to have worked for a Swiss-based company called Cotecna Inspection Services SA, which from 1998-2003 held a lucrative contract with the U.N. to monitor goods arriving in Saddam Hussein's Iraq under the oil-for-food program. But investigators are now looking into new information suggesting that the younger Annan received far more money over a much longer period, even after his compensation from Cotecna had reportedly ended.

The importance of this story involves not only undisclosed conflicts of interest, but the question of the role of the secretary-general himself, at a time when talk is starting to be heard around the U.N. that it is time for him to resign, and the staff labor union is in open rebellion against "senior management."

"What other bombshells are out there being hidden from the public and U.N. member governments?" asked an investigator on Rep. Henry Hyde's International Relations Committee, which has held hearings on oil-for-food.

The younger Annan stopped working for Cotecna in late 1998, but it now turns out that he continued to receive money from Cotecna not only through 1999, as recently reported, but right up until February of this year. The timing coincides with the entire duration of Cotecna's work for the U.N. oil-for-food program. It now appears the payments to the younger Annan ended three months after the U.N., in November, 2003, closed out its role in oil-for-food and handed over the remains of the program to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad.

Read the rest here.

- Stop right there.

Credible?

I think not.

Laughable?

Certainly.

You're right - not credible at all. I don't know why there is so much delay at cleaning house at the UN. Throw Kofi, his corrupt spawn Kojo, Sevan, and the rest out of the UN and into prison.

What's the holdup, I wonder?

Incredible that charlatans should exist outside of our own government!

As I posted elswhere, don't forget what country denied Boutros Boutros-Ghali a second term as Secretary General in 1996 and favored Kofi Annan as a replacement... it sure wasn't France. *hint*

Well we obviously made a mistake. That doesn't mean we have to suffer with it until Kofi decides it's time to quit. Out with the scoundrel, I say!

So what? That's immaterial. Annan is worse than useless.
Time for him to be prosecuted and thrown into prision. Better
yet ... turn him loose in the streets of Rwanda or Bagdad and
let the people have at him. They are the ones that he left
to die and that he stole billions from.
