Why is Kofi blocking the Food for Oil investigation?

Is it because he was involved, along with his son, in profiteering at the expense of the Iraqi civilians?

Is it because he has called the war in Iraq illegal, and does not want the world to see how much control Saddam had over UN Security Council decisions? Decisions that left the US with no choice?

Hmmmm.......I wonder? Do you?

Quite honestly, I don't know the particulars of this. But if he's trying to block an investigation it could be trying to keep the investigators from discovering some scandalous activities on the part of the U.N. I'm aware that the U.N. is a deeply flawed institution, and I don't put any shenanigans past people who chase money and power. They are not going to represent the best of humanity, wherever you look.

Do you have a link to a story about this? Not sure if I want to judge until I've read up on this.

PS-- If we are going with this "hiding something" criteria, we can use the same reasoning for the 9/11 Commission. Why did it take two years to get a commission started when Roosevelt was able to create three dealing with Pearl Harbor a week after that attack? If Republicans want to attack Kofi Annan on this, they are treading on thin ice and will look like hypocrites.

why are they hiding it? simple... the little credibility that they have left will be completely gone, and george bush's credibility will be pumped up considerably when it comes out that france, germany, russia and kofi's son all stood to lose billions of dollars in money (money that was supposed to go to help the iraqi people) if saddam was taken out of power. it puts the blood of american soldiers on the hands of those who had their hands in the cookie jar.

that's why kofi doesn't want to talk about it... that's why the media doesn't want to talk about it... that's why the liberals don't want to talk about it.

Could someone give me a link to information about this situation? I'm going to check out the Turkish press, I wonder if they say anything about this?

Well, there is not anything about this in the Turkish press. Their foreign news is about support for Turkey's bid for EU membership.
