Dishonest Corruption

I'm in a restaurant/bar on Pittsburgh's South Side, the Tuscany Cafe on E. Carson. It has free wireless internet. I'm enjoying a fine beverage and a little light blogging.

An opinion piece in the WSJ nails League of United Nations leader Annan on the Oil-For-Vetoes scandal.

Mr. Annan did not actually deny that the Chinese, Russians and French had taken big payoffs from Saddam. Mr. Annan merely disputed that the Chinese, Russians and French would have delivered anything in return for the bribes. In other words, they may be corrupt, but at least they weren't honest about it.
