Very interesting news re: UNSCAM

Charles at LGF has a link to an interesting development in the Oil-For-Food scandal in the United Nations. According from an article in the New York Post, it seems that: bq. A former manager in the scandal-scarred oil for food program will tell Congress today how top U.N. officials running the program deliberately looked the other way, congressional officials said last night. bq. Frenchman Michael Soussan, a former program coordinator for the $100 billion fund, is expected to be the star witness of a House International Relations Committee hearing looking into Saddam's gigantic $10.1 billion rip-off. bq. Committee sources said Soussan, now a New York-area writer, is expected to give the first, under oath, public account from an insider about how top U.N. officials were aware of Saddam's oil smuggling and kickback schemes but chose to let him get away with it. Tip of the iceberg... Should be interesting to see what fallout there is from this. Posted by DaveH at April 28, 2004 1:53 PM
