ROGER SIMON:

I would like to know if one of our big media organizations is at work on one of the most disturbing mysteries of our time–where the billions in UN Oil-for-Food money in Iraq went and how it got there. Why aren’t the LAT, the NYT and WaPo on this? If they’re afraid of the answers, then shame on them. Until we fully understand the roots and extent of this scandal, the UN will not be able to function as an untainted organization. You would think believers in international government (which I am, with reservations) would want to clear that up.

Yes, you would think that.
