Just happened upon the WFB column from Friday. He posits that John Danforth left the U.N. due to its hypocrisy, which was "articulated by John Danforth, and its bureaucratic self-interest is reinforced by Kofi Annan's refusal to resign. It is a true mess, and whatever our concern for Sally [Danforth's wife and stated reason for quitting], the world joins in asking, with John Danforth, "What is it all about?"
Buckley paints a picture of the U.N., using few words, which leaves one scratching at his head after looking at it.
