Time to start holding the U.N accountable

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan stated for the record that the US military attack of Iraq was illegal and a violation of the UN Charter.

Annan also said the decision to take action in Iraq should have been made by the Security Council and not made by the US and Britain alone.

I think it's time to turn up the heat and get to the bottom of the hardly ever reported oil for food program . Including supplying Sadaams Republican guard with liquor.

September 18, 2004 -- WASHINGTON — Saddam Hussein used the U.N. oil-for-food program to illegally import thousands of gallons of Johnnie Walker whiskey in order to keep his elite Republican Guard happy, according to a new report.
Fox News Channel, in a special report scheduled to air tomorrow night, quotes a U.N. whistleblower as revealing that Saddam was importing the expensive Scotch in the guise of humanitarian supplies right under the noses of U.N. inspectors.
"The Republican Guards had to be kept in good moods and they were so sophisticated in this regard that he couldn't supply them with cheap whiskey from the Far East," said Paul Conlon, who was fired in 1995 from the U.N. Sanctions Committee.
"He actually had to buy Johnnie Walker and export it via a supplier of various things to his son Uday," Conlon told Fox.
Conlon added the Scotch was probably disguised as chemicals needed for various humanitarian projects.
