This is a blog about current events - a way to provide a constructive outlet for some of the thoughts I have on the issues of the day. It's also a way to generate some discussion and to get my ideas out into the world. Enjoy!

Words escape me...

Courtesy of the Associated Press in writing about the corruption at the United Nations in regards to the Oil-For-Food (or Oil-For-Palaces) program in Iraq.

"One of the most prolific purchasers of the oil was Swiss-based Glencore run by one-time fugitive American financier Marc Rich, which the report alleges paid over $3.2 million in kickbacks to the Iraqi government. Rich, formerly wanted for tax-evasion was pardoned by President Clinton in his last days in office."

I don't need to connect the dots on this one.
