Ah, the ever-compass…
Ah, the ever-compassionate United Nations:

WASHINGTON, April 7 (UPI) — U.S. officials told a Senate panel Wednesday that officers in Saddam Hussein’s government skimmed $10.1 billion from the U.N. Oil-for-Food program.

Senior General Accounting Office and the Department of Defense officials told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that while it was difficult to decipher because the Iraqi’s used a system where small amounts of money were skimmed from a myriad of contracts, the money was taken.

Beyond the skimming itself, 87 percent of the contracts for delivering food were overpriced.

And John Kerry wants these folks to be in charge of Iraq. Would you trust these people with your country? And somehow this was better–the enriching of Hussein at the expense of his people–than taking out Hussein and installing a republic? That’s what the anti-war folks would have you believe. That, to them, was “peace”.
