He's Off the Hook!



'After so many distressing and untrue allegations have been made against me, this exoneration by the independent inquiry obviously comes as a great relief,'


Good to hear he's finally off the hook! Doubtless, the right-wing geeks in the US are mightily disappointed that a UN official--their nemesis--(to say nothing of the fact that he is a BLACK man at that too) has been what some would say exonerated by the oil-for-food programme.

I will not seek to reproduce what BBC news et al. were saying about it, but here are some interesting links:

  • http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,1447709,00.html

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kofi_Annan


  • Ok, so there are only two;-) but here's an interesting insight:

    There I was sitting at around 1.20am in the morning watching BBC World, and news reader interviewing Kofi Annan's Communications Director Edward Mortimer.

    As much of a "uno-phile" I may be, I was not so impressed by his performance, except when he pressed to the interviewer that one cannot expect Kofi Annan to be asking his grown-up son how much he is earning for his job, and how much he is getting by way of profit. Just not done is it?

    I thought that was a salient point. After all, how many parents REALLY know what their kids are up to? And especially if your kid is no longer living with you, how can you be monitoring his/her every move?

    Some serious food for thought I think...

    maybe Freeman could play Annan in Annan's life history?;-)
