Kofi Annan is a corrupt ex-UN bureaucrat who likes to live lavishly off of other peoples’ wealth. He’s the poster child for UN corruption, the coddling of dictators and defending their excesses and interests. His participation in the Oil-For-Food scam has been well documented by Claudia Rosett, which should have reduced him to a pariah-like status.
Fellow UN hacks, like the former Finnish president, Martti Ahtisaari, instead choose to invite him to participate in seminars, so apparently ‘Mara’ hasn’t a problem with Annan’s very checkered past. Why should he though, Ahtisaari sat in the bureaucracy of the UN for decades and (as far as I know) never once raised an objection to the graft, greed and corruption of that international institution to the Finnish public.
The Tundra Tabloids has never heard Ahtisaari criticize the immense amount of waste within the halls of the UN, nor criticize the UNGA and its human rights council for having states that support terrorism sitting as members, let alone presiding as president of the UNHRC. So why should we be surprised that he invites this highly corrupt kleptocrat to Helsinki for one of his Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) seminars? Disgusting. KGS
