I agree, I would definitely be more worried if UN activities weren't being monitored. If they're taking actions and making decisions to the benefit
of all mankind (as they are supposed), then what do they have to hide? This sounds more like a ploy to distract attention from their own problems.
i.e.: UN inaction, corruption, kangaroo-court politics, pre-war bribe taking, etc.
Of course, Kofi Annan has his own story on this, which I unfortunately don't have all the details on, but I can't help but bash Hans Blix for this
one. He thinks he was bugged because of a click he heard on his phone line...that's it? I hear clicks, buzzes and all kinds of weird noises on
phones--it doesn't mean I'm bugged, it means that phone lines DO that sort of thing. The man has no proof whatSOever, yet his story is gobbled up
by the anti-US masses as irrefutable fact. Please...
Of course, I would also assume that our taps would be nigh-undetectable anyway.
Not that I doubt for a second that we did have him bugged...simply for the reasons outlined at the beginning of this post. The US is looking out for
it's own interests, as well we should. Obviously, no one else is going to!
