France, UN, Hussein

Published by at 6:16 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq

One reason the French can never, ever set foot in Iraq is there is a good chance the Iraqis would want to attack them. Same for the UN. John Kerry’s silly call for the UN to take over in Iraq is now exposed for the sheer stupidity it was. Captain Ed posts on the French aide to Annan who accepted bribes from Hussein:

The London Telegraph reports this morning that a senior French diplomat has confessed to accepting money from Saddam Hussein in exchange for his access to and influence with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The former UN ambassador for France claims that the allocations given to him through Tariq Aziz came in recognition of his “work for the Iraqi people”, but nonetheless acknowledges its illegality.

Former Amassador?! The Iraqi’s know that they suffered at Saddam’s hand because of UN and European greed. People died and the EU elite dined at fancy restaurants and got rich off the oil for food scam. Here is the London Telegraph story.

As Morrissey points out – you won’t hear about this in the US.

And yet the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and every other outlet seems to have missed this story…

The US media would be shown for the dupes they are for believing those on Saddam’s payroll would be willing to sacrifice themselves to rebuild Iraq. There is no money in rebuilding Iraq and it takes effort.

    Hmmm…I wonder if there are other former ambassadors (maybe one that worked in Iraq , mabe even American) getting “work for the Iraqi people” money?

    I found the same thing to be true in Norway. The Norwegian press hasn’t even mentioned Mérimée once. Not once! What to do? I planted the story with a journalist stricken by my perhaps valid criticism of another article he did.

    Thus, the only story in the Norwegian news media about Mérimée is due to me. I guess that’s one way to get this news out there…
