But the UN is a serious place, led by serious people, such as UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay, who was seriously concerned a few years ago about the execution of Saddam Hussein. Now she’s upset over the killing of Qaddafi. Apparently the Russian government, with its serious interest in law, is concerned as well.

Seems like before all these serious folks pour their energies (plus U.S. taxpayer dollars) into probing the demise of Qaddafi, they ought to launch a probe into how it happened that during the past few years the UN gave Qaddafi’s Libya a seat on the Security Council, made one of his envoys president of the General Assembly, elected Libya to the Human Rights Council, made Qaddafi’s daughter a UN Goodwill Ambassador and picked Libya to chair the preparations for the Durban II conference, starring Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, held in 2009 at the UN offices in Geneva.

She is widely recognized as a ground-breaking reporter on corruption at the United Nations. Her investigative reporting skills, drawn from three decades as a journalist and editor writing on international affairs, led her to expose the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal, the worst financial fraud in the history of humanitarian relief. Due in substantial part to her investigation, the U.S. House and Senate launched inquiries into the program. Ms. Rosett has appeared before five U.S. House and Senate Committees and Subcommittees to testify on U.N.-related corruption. Her work on Oil-for-Food earned Claudia the 2005 Eric Breindel Award and the Mightier Pen award.
