Annan Family Values

Here’s the latest from Reuters on the deepening scandal surrounding Kofi Annan, his son Kojo and the UN kleptocrats who used an allegedly humanitarian program to enrich Saddam and his Euro-criminal cohorts:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said on Monday he was “disappointed” his son did not tell him the full story of his ties to a firm involved in the U.N. oil-for-food program, now under investigation.

Annan’s son, Kojo, received payments from the Geneva-based Cotecna firm until last February after the United Nations said he severed ties with the company in February 1999. Part of the payments involved an agreement not to compete with Cotecna in West Africa after he left the firm.

“Naturally I was very disappointed and surprised,” Annan told reporters, saying the discrepancy had not been brought to his attention.

I guess the Annans are a “distant” family.

For the rest of us two things are necessary. One, for Kofi Annan to resign. Two, for the UN to open its books 24/7 on the Internet. Every transaction. Every salary. That’s our money they’re stealing. Where is the MSM in this? If Annan were an American politician, they’d be all over him like the cheapest suit on the planet. This is their UN too, in case they don’t get it.
