United Nations pockets a third of tsunami money

UPI reported on Dec 23 that of the 590 million dollars of relief money funneled through the UN up to 1/3 may have gone to "overhead". While one might think that after the oil for food scandal and the rapes in the Congo by UN peacekeepers the UN might have wanted to lay low on misconduct. One might think that Kofi Annan might have wanted to keep close tabs on the huge amounts of money being handled by the UN. Sadly, no. One third would be over 195 million dollars going to "under the table", I mean "overhead".

The question now is "When will Kofi resign?" When he is not embroiled in scandal, Kofi wiles the rest of his hours downing the USA at each opportunity. The US needs to ask what the purpose of the UN is, and how has the billions we have sunk into this treacherous organization benefited us or the rest of the world for that matter.

This latest outrage will be a true test of the US and world media. Will they actually cover the story thoroughly? Will they probe? Will they ask the tough questions? Will they have the fortitude to stick with it instead of mentioning it in passing? I must say that they are off to a slow start already. Here it is four days after the UPI created this clipping and I am only now hearing about it today. I have been scouring news for days to find some material in this slow time to post about and this is the first I am seeing it because it was mentioned on - you guessed it FNC. Maybe with that exposure, we will start to see the story get legs.

    Oh come on now, AICS. There has to be a handling charge to cover costs to the UN. (wink, wink nudge, nudge)

    Maybe Kojo wants a Ferrari next to his Mercedes Benz.
