getting ready for Bill Clinton

It looks like the United Nations may end up being in a position to actually bring in Bill Clinton as a reformer to clean up it's scandal-ridden operations. Incredibly, it is starting to look like John Kerry's best buddy U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan is more corrupt and inept than Clinton.

"UN staff are expected to make an unprecedented vote of no confidence in Secretary-General Kofi Annan, union sources say, after a series of scandals tainted his term in charge of the world body.
Annan has been in the line of fire over a series of scandals including controversy about a UN aid program that investigators say allowed deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to embezzle billions of dollars.

Annan stands accused of obstructing US investigators, especially since his hand-picked official Paul Volcker this week rejected calls from the US Senate to turn over documents from the program and waive UN staff immunity."

Some of Saddam's money has evidently ended up in the pockets of Annan's son and some of it went to buy off friends of John Kerry's other good friend French president Jacques Chiraq who, in return, was adamatly opposed to taking any action that would take power away from Saddam (and end the gravy train of money to his friends).
