Two high level investigators in the U.N. oil-for-food scandel have resigned today protesting lenient treatment towards Kofi Annan for his role in the program. The U.N. has been hit hard by the investigation, and many other alleged scandels including sexual misconduct in Congo by peacekeepers and sexual harassment accusations against a former U.N. refugee chief.

UNITED NATIONS - (AP) - Two senior investigators with the committee probing corruption in the U.N. oil-for-food program have resigned in protest, saying they believe a report that cleared Kofi Annan of meddling in the $64 billion operation was too soft on the secretary-general, a panel member confirmed Wednesday.
The investigators felt the Independent Inquiry Committee, led by former U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker, played down findings critical of Annan when it released an interim report in late March related to his son, said Mark Pieth, one of three leaders of the committee.

Is the U.N. falling apart, having a string of bad luck, or just getting more than usual media attention? These investigators reportedly resigned because they felt they could not effectively do the job they signed up for. Were they being censored? Pressured? Neither investigator will comment to the press at this time.

Of course this "investigation" is just an exercise to cover-up Annan's role in the UN scandal. Hopefully he won't be able to avoid the bright lights of a U.S. Congressional investigation though.
