    It's about time the details of this scandal start getting into the public realm. Since this story is not favorable to the U.N., of course, the liberal media are going to sit on it until they are forced to cover it. Once this story gets out, we will know for certain that the Iraq sanctions were not working before the U.S. invasion, and, contrary to what Kerry says, Saddam could not have been contained through continued use of the sanctions, thanks largely to nations we regarded as allies ignoring them when it was in their financial interests to do so.

    What? It's already been covered fairly well in the "liberal media". Now they are waiting for the juicy details to come out.

    Makes me wonder if these transactions were done with Euro dollars too.

    I find the fact that Annan's son "Kojo" was employed by Cotenec, and worked as a consultand for them in 1998 when they won the UN contract in to be very intersting in light of what's happening now.
