DisgustingOn the heels of the news that Iraqi terrorists have beheaded a second American hostage - not to mention the twelve Nepalese - Kofi Annan has this to say,
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan condemned the taking and killing of hostages in Iraq. But he also said Iraqi prisoners had been disgracefully abused, an implicit criticism of the U.S. treatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib.I have long suspected that Kofi "Oil for Food" Annan was an affirmative action appointment. No, not because he's black, rather because it was Africa's "turn". But his declaration that the invasion of Iraq was illegal and then his drawing a parallel between the beheading of innocent civilians and some frat house idiocy at Abu Ghraib confirms it.
"No one is above the law," Annan said. "Again and again, we see fundamental laws shamelessly disregarded — those that ordain respect for innocent life, for civilians, for the vulnerable — especially children."
There is, pace Kofi, a slight distinction between beheading someone and dressing them in women's clothes. If you can't see it you have no business being Secretary General of the local pound, much less the UN.
