The UN: "...a sinkhole of corruption."

From Robert Novak in Today's Chicago Sun-Times, regarding the U.S. Senate's investigation into the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal...

"The extent of the corruption is staggering..."

[The UN-initiated "independent" investigation]... in the absence of subpoena powers looks like a sham.

"In seeing what is happening at the U.N.," [U.S. Senator] Coleman told me, "I am more troubled today than ever. I see a sinkhole of corruption."

Update (11/17): Claudia Rosette again leads the way. The UN "...allowed Saddam Hussein to embezzle at least $21.3 billion in oil money during 12 years, with the great bulk of that sum--a staggering $17.3 billion--pilfered between 1997-2003, on Mr. Annan's watch"

Update (11/19): UN staff union votes "no confidence" in senior UN staff. "...the final straw was Annan’s decision this week to clear a senior U.N. official on charges of favoritism and sexual harassment."
