Is Ban Ki-moon Trying to Squelch the U.N.'s Watchdogs?


www.foxnews.com

Is United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon trying to squelch a branch of the world organization whose string of recent reports have drawn member nations' attention to dramatic U.N. failings?

At a closed-door meeting of U.N. diplomats earlier this week, the Geneva-based U.N. investigative group known as the Joint Inspection Unit, whose job is to assess and improve the efficiency and coordination of the U.N. worldwide, issued a highly charged annual report that raised the question.

Buried in the middle of the 52-page document came a remarkably blunt accusation from the JIU's inspectors that Ban had abruptly and secretively changed 40 years of accepted procedure for selecting the JIU's executive secretary — a post, the report sharply noted, that has been vacant for 14 months.

The report added that a Ban-appointed panel had taken the "illegal action" of demanding a bigger hand in the selection of candidates for the job who had already been approved by JIU — a demand in violation, the inspectors said, of U.N. rules and regulations.

Well this had to be expected being that Ban was slapped with an audit from them stating that there was massive loss and mismanagement in the UN. It would seem that Ban has had enough with the failings of the Un being made public along with the illegal activities.
These are the same people being pushed as the sunshine saviors for a new one world currency. The same people who can't even manage the programs they have now without breaking laws and loosing millions of dollars.
Here is a pdf. on the audit that started this lil war with Ban:

As you can see they have enough messes to clean up right now! They should focus more on fixing their internal problems than taking on the whole monetary system of the world. Which they obviously can't handle in the first place.

I had jury duty a few months back and a guy on the jury with me was a retired test pilot and he said that 75 cents of every dollar that the government spends in our taxes goes to maintaining government buildings and other ridiculous things that if any normal business tried doing they would fail in a short time.

Government is the most inefficient, complacent, incompetent entity to ever be invented. Although it is a necessary evil it should be limited in what it can do.

This is exactly why, Ban Ki-moon is mad at us for not paying our "dues" to the UN because they are no better than the crooks we have in out government.

It is a crock and it all needs to stop.
