UN - Iraq Oil Scandal

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Plastic Yank, Nov 19, 2004.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From today's BBC web-site.

    The BBC does it again!! Only 7 months after the rest of the world's media has been reporting on the UN Oil for Food Scandal, does the BBC now have Exclusive news that a scam took place! Well done those reporters.

    I wonder what tipped them off:

    Amercian press investigation in Sept 2002!
    US Congress Investgation that started in April 2004
    UN's own internal investigation (head by Paul Vockler) in June 2004

    Notice how the BBC even here are able to blame this on the Yanks! I see no mention of Mr Kofi Annan's son, who is being investigated?

    NOT from the BBC, but the Christian Science Monitor, July 2004

  2. The main stream media [left leaning] love the UN and so would be loathe to attack it or even to investigate that august body. UN officials made millions of dollars as did alot of other people that received oil voucher's from Saddam. Had the Oil for Food Program been run honestly Saddam wouldnt have been able to divert $22 billion and the money would have been used for the children of Iraq.
