Cuba policy is bad, and is linked with the far left. I don't think Americans are terribly interested in what she has to say.
I see that, according to her, the U.S. ran the Oil for Food program, and forced poor Kofi to fill his pockets with money.
or on Bill O'Reilly.
"What seems to be consistently overlooked--not only by rightwing pundits but at congressional hearings and in the New York Times--is a distinction of enormous significance: the U.N. is being attacked for the policies and failures of particular member nations. The Oil for Food Programme was not some concoction of Kofi Annan's. It was created by a vote of the members of the Security Council. And every aspect of how the program ran--what goods were allowed, the monitoring procedures, the transfer of funds, everything--was explicitly established by the members of the Security Council. Kofi Annan did not have a vote; but the United States and Britain did, and they approved of every resolution and decision that determined how the Oil for Food Programme worked. Whatever critics may say, "the U.N. bureaucracy" did not design a program that handed over cash to Saddam Hussein. The fifteen members of the Security Council--of which the United States was by far the most influential--determined how income from oil proceeds would be handled, and what the funds could be used for. The U.N.'s personnel operating the Oil for Food Programme did not set these policies. They simply executed the program that was designed by the members of the Security Council.
"For the most part, the U.N. has not publicly defended itself. There is an internal investigation, led by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, and U.N. staff are making few public comments until the investigation is complete. Ironically, if it is true that Saddam Hussein's government smuggled and skimmed such vast amounts, much of the blame can be laid at the feet of the United States. For over a decade U.S. representatives have dominated decisions and actions regarding Iraq by the Security Council and its fifteen-member 661 Committee. * The committee operated by consensus, effectively giving each member veto power, a power the United States has made liberal use of. The United States is also on record as the committee member that most consistently and actively scrutinized Iraq's dealings under the Oil for Food Programme. Scrutiny of the country's physical borders--both land and sea--has also been dominated by the United States since the last Gulf War. Indeed, since then, no country has been in a better position to evaluate and control Iraq's business."
