Following up on my article yesterday about the secrets of Kofi Annan’s old taxpayer-subsidized apartment on Roosevelt Island, now in use by the family of his brother, Kobina Annan (currently Ghana’s ambassador to Morocco), Michelle Malkin on Hot Air puts Kofi’s doings neatly in context as the subject of today’s Vent, where there is also a link to my Hot Air phone interview on the Annan scandals. Yet more on Kofi’s apartment by Paul Colford in today’s New York Daily News, and Benny Avni in The New York Sun. The American Thinker ponders the “Annanklatura,” and on NRO, Cliff May at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (where I am journalist-in-residence) makes an excellent point about “Kofi’s Crash Pad.”
