Annan Pledges to Get to Truth in Oil-For-Food Scandal


"Obviously there were some hard knocks in the report and we are concerned about it," Annan said. "This is why we intend to take action promptly."

Those "hard knocks" would involve allegations that UN personnel aided Saddam in the theft of billions from the Oil for Food Program they were supposedly administering.

I guess its the fact that this theft led to the suffering and deaths of perhaps thousands of Iraqis who were deprived of the food an medicine those stolen dollars were intended to supply that makes them so "hard".

Still no word from Annan regarding the unkind words directed at the UN for turning a blind eye to the genocide in Rwanda and the Sudan.
