Rotten to the top?

Just in time to ruin Kofi Annan's weekend, FOX news is in receipt of boxes of evidence from a member of the Independent Inquiry Committee, the team tasked with investigating the UN's responsibility in the Oil For Food scandal. Two of the committee's investigators resigned in frustration in recent weeks feeling that Kofi Annan was "getting off the hook" for his sins in the biggest swindle in world history. UN hath no fury like an investigator scorned:
U.N. investigators have turned over to Congress boxes of evidence on the Oil for Food program, including "proof" that U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan lied to the Independent Inquiry Committee probing the scandal, Fox News Channel reporter Jonathan Hunt said Thursday.

"One source close to the case told me that in those boxes is the ammunition to prove that Kofi Annan lied to investigators," Hunt told Fox News Radio host Tony Snow. "So this is a very dramatic development indeed."

Hunt said the documents had been in the possession of U.N. investigator Robert Parton, who resigned from the probe two weeks ago charging that Annan was being let off the hook.
"The boxes contain the almost complete records of Parton's investigation," Hunt told Snow, explaining, "It looks very embarrassing for Kofi Annan right now - it's a very bad thing."
