Condi excuses Kofi's involvement in Oil-for-food

One Jerusalem finds out that US state secratary Condi Rice told a major newspaper (it wouldn't surprise me if it were the NY Times they're talking about) that Kofi Annan, in the Bush administration's opinion, is off the hook in the oil-for-food scandal.

As the blogmasters ask here:
Pardon my ignorance but since when does the Secretray of State have the authority to forgive anyone for a $100 billion scandal - that his relatives benefited from?

And why would anyone look to this incompetent (who may be a thief)to reform any organization? Is Rice as naive as she seems?This interview also sheds light on why the Bush Administration suddenly sweetened its financial offer so that the United Nations can construct a new headquarters.

Believe it or not, but the Oil for Food scandal is not the main reason why Annan should go. Read Dore Gold's The Tower of Babble and you will see Annan refusing to save thousands of innocent Africans and how he has bent over backwards to placate terrorist states.
They are correct. Annan has done nothing genuine to stop the genocide in Sudan and Rwanda, nor to stop the threats of Islamofascist terrorism in the middle east. So it's very appalling if the Bush administration is dismissing Annan's felonies for the sake of...who knows what?

Annan is not a friend of America, Israel, Africa, or any others such countries, and should resign his position as head of the UN.

To make matters worse, as the New York Sun reports:
UNITED NATIONS - A diplomatic group known as the quartet yesterday said it "ultimately" opposes the participation of terrorist groups like Hamas in Palestinian Arab politics. At the same time the group, including Secretary of State Rice, said Hamas would not be barred from participation in an upcoming election.

The contradiction was partly due to conflicts among members of the quartet, which leads Middle East diplomacy. It also exposed the State Department's muddled position on the role of terrorists in the region's transition to democracy.
If they are unable to take a solid position on the Hamas either way, then that pretty much shows why we cannot depend upon either the US government or the UN for ensuring democracy or peace in the region. And especially not between the Arabs and Israel.

Here's more info on the subject from Yahoo News. (Hat tip: Reaganites Unite.)

Update: In a recent issue of the Philadelphia Weekly, the UN's knee-jerk leader, Kofi Annan, was said to be coming to receieve an honorary degree from the Pennsylvania University. And the folks on the homefront weren't happy, for completely justifiable reasons. He's ignored the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and it's good to see that people are angry at him for that. As one of the members of the university has said:
"Annan snubs his nose at situations like Darfur," says Eric Rechtschaffen, a Penn junior and former president of the school's chapter of the College Republicans. "Considering the controversies surrounding him, like the oil-for-food scandal, it's sad that the administration didn't consult the students about an appropriate choice for commencement speaker."
The university should also be ashamed of itself for inviting him to speak there, while acting totally oblivious to Kofi's disgraceful acts.

There's also a new website now up, called Kofioffcampus.org, urging to petition him off campus and print fliers protesting against him, and featuring breaking news about Kofi as well. I'd strongly recommend checking it out.
