Paul Volker's Second Interim Report on the United Nation's Oil For Food Program is available here as a PDF file.
The report is 90 pages plus an appendix and glossary. The findings and conclusions are less than 4 pages.
The mainstream media reports that Secretary-General Kofi Annan has been cleared. See MSNBC -
"U.N.'s Annan Cleared, But Criticized," the BBC's - "Annan Cleared Over Oil-For-Food," and Reuters' - "Oil, Food Probe Clears Annan, Raps Son"
The Volker report does find certain irregularities that if found in President Bush's administration would result in headlines with a much more negative tone. Read the report's findings, pages 77-80. Annan may be "cleared," but there were serious lapses.
At Outside the Beltway, James Joyner posts that although the report finds "there is no evidence that the selection of Cotecna in 1998 was subject to any affirmative or improper influence of the secretary-general in the bidding or selection process," it's a "hell of a coincidence."
Say Anything posts that these type of coincidences don’t take place in a vacuum.
