    The interim report did not clear him, rather they have insufficient evidence right now, they are working on it. They did find fault. I decided to check out some of the UK papers to see their take, unsurprisingly The Guardian has him 'cleared,' but not so the Telegraph, which has been right there with the WSJ in looking at some of this:

    I'm always curious as to Annans' true agenda here. Money, power, fame? His record as a leader of an agency that is sworn to help people has been a dismal failure and apparently he's damned and determined to continue on his same course of failure. Worst Secretary General ever!

    You're right, it seems to be that other reporters have had time to read and are beginning to look a bit deeper. Here's two from Canada:

    I'd love to see the UN led by Vaclav Havel once Kofi is forced out in the next few weeks... if anything to watch him stand up to the Chinese and French and give them hell
