Bye and Write When You Can

FLATTERED. The U.S. should be flattered that Kofi Annan criticized the U.S. in his farewell speech. Annan is the tip of the corruption scandal that was the Food for Oil program. While he was in charge of peacekeeping forces, he was responsible for the delays in Rwanda that caused 800,000 deaths. And his reform of the Human Rights Commission that resulted in an even worse Human Rights Council is laughable.

Being lectured by a crook isn't new for the U.S. Hugo Chavez recently appeared at the U.N. with the same complaints. And, come to think of it, Nikita Kruschev and Fidel Castro had similar criticisms.

The word "corruption" isn't found once in the full text of his speech. The speech was given at the Truman Library. If Truman was alive, he'd have kicked the bastard out the front door.
