Can we have some integrity at the top?

The newest Republican attack for the failures in Iraq is Kofi Annan and the UN. The charges are ridiculous and I’m not going to take them on, but I think it is interesting that Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota called for Kofi Annan to step down because of the fraud under the Oil for Food program. I don’t have a problem with that as long as George Bush steps down for the US mismanagement for the same fund (now called Iraqi Development Fund). Seems only fair. Addendum: Retiring UN Ambassador John Danforth said that he was speaking for the White House and that he had complete faith in Kofi Annan. Somebody at the White House must have put this together before I could blog it. ;-)
