The UN game

From Reuters via MyWay News:

The United Nations will not allow its officials to testify before the U.S. Congress or other national legislatures but will make them available behind closed doors, according to a letter released on Wednesday.

The letter was addressed to Norm Coleman, the Minnesota Republican who heads a U.S. Senate panel probing the scandal-tainted U.N. oil-for-food program for Iraq. Senators on the panel on Tuesday sharply criticized the United Nations for failing to provide access to its officials in their inquiry.

In other words they want to hamstring anyone investigating them. What criminal wouldn't want a set up like that.

The jokes getting old -- why are we still a member of this anachronistic mockery.
