Volcker’s UN Report

Paul Volcker’s Interim Report on the UN’s oil-for-food program. (PDF file, over 200 pages) It does seem that the program was corrupt to the core; but this report will not be the end of it. Senator Norm Coleman said, "There is more than enough probable cause to believe Benon Sevan’s actions constitute criminal activity." It is said that Kofi Annan has ordered "disciplinary action" (whatever that means) against Benon Sevan and one other.

"Paul Volcker’s Interim Report on the UN’s oil-for-food program..." will be downplayed, if not totally ignored, by the mainstream media. In comparison to the their effort spent digging into and reporting Bush’s 30-year old National Guard record or the Abu Ghraib scandal, the oil-for-food coverage pales.

Heck, the oil-for-food story gets less attention than Ramsey Clark’s support of Sadaam.
