THE DLC HAS “CLARIFIED” the piece on Kofi Annan that I linked to earlier, robbing it of most of its impact, I’m afraid:

(CORRECTION: the original sub-headline of this New Dem Daily mistakenly summarized the piece as calling for Kofi Annan’s resignation. Actually, in calling for the secretary general to “step aside,” we simply meant to convey that he should remove himself from any involvement in the oil-for-food investigation, and let Paul Volcker, a man of unquestioned integrity and ability, conduct it independently and publicly release his findings. We deeply regret this error.)

Or as Emily Litella would say: “Never mind.”

UPDATE: A contradiction is noted.
