What Is Annan Hiding?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Captains Quarters)

Kofi Annan neglected to mention two key meetings when he was first questioned last year about contacts with his son's company when it was soliciting business under the U.N. oil-for-food program...

"During many different meetings with the panel and its counsel, the Secretary-General took pains to answer questions truthfully and completely. In his first interview, however, Mr. Annan had no advance knowledge of the specific topics of greatest concern to the panel and had not prepared himself adequately," attorney Greg Craig said.

Either Annan is lying or incompetent. The scandals alone would be enough to remove any CEO or President from his position of authority (and even possible impeachment of the president if such a thing were committed). Although the United Nations is a necessary organization (at least somewhat) they will never go beyond the "lid" of their leaders. It's time for Annan to step down and someone else to be appointed.

After all, it isn't like the U.N. is desiring this case so that it can clear it's "good name."
Parton's acrimonious departure from the U.N. probe has turned into a legal battle, with the U.N. trying, unsuccessfully, to stop its former investigator from complying with the subpoena to provide his investigative files to Congress.

Those files provide a detailed account of what Annan told investigators and when, and show the friction over how to interpret evidence that ensued between Parton and the three-member committee, led by Volcker, that supervised his work.

It is doubtful that Annan would willingly leave the United Nations without pressure from the U.S., England and perhaps other western powers recognizing "integrity" as a foundation for any organization. The United Nations is quickly becoming the saddest bureaucracy of the 21st century, and if it's founders were alive today they would certainly weep.

Hopefully leadership within the U.N. (that has not profited from the Oil-for-food program) will purge the institution of this hypocrite and restore it's honor and respect around the world. Until then, Annan's presence will only add to the stench of corruption surround this body, and his continued position at the helm of the U.N. will have the affect of Edward John Smith commanding the Titanic.
