They Love Kofi at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

  • First, departing UN Ambassador John Danforth championed UN Sec Gen Kofi Annan, telling the nation that Annan was not a crook. Then, departing Secretary of State Colin Powell invited Kofi to DC Thursday to talk to him and his designated replacement, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice about election workers for Iraq.

    The world – the President, Australia, Britain, France, Germany – has rallied around Kofi and shown the man their love.

    Kofi's not the problem, and methinks the calls for his resignation are political rallying cries. (That's not a per se bad thing.) The problem will not be solved by Kofi's resignation; in fact, that will not be even a first step towards solving the problem.

    It's the U.N. Broadly stated, the problems are spread throughout the entire organization.


    All I got out of Danforth's statement is that the president is waiting to see how the investigation goes, the same thing he says about everything when the jury's still out.
