The Strib on Kofi Annan and Oil for Food

The Strib's Wednesday editorial (available Tuesday night on the web site) defends Kofi Annan from Senator Norm Coleman's call for the Secretary General to resign. I don't have the time to write about this item extensively this evening, but I would like to point out that the Strib is being inconsistent in defending Kofi Annan for the same kind of conduct that it regularly accuses President Bush of and condemns him for. They even equivalence Abu Ghraib and Oil for Food. Well, the Strib should remember that corruption in the Oil-for-PalacesFood program caused far more suffering than the soldiers at Abu Ghraib (as wrong as that was).
