UNSCAM UPDATE: An editorial:

Slowly but surely, the investigative circle grows closer to Kofi Annan.

Monday, the former French ambassador to the United Nations, Jean-Bernard Merimee, was arrested in Paris on suspicion of having taken kickbacks from Saddam Hussein in the form of vouchers from the U.N.’s Oil-for-Food program.

From 1999 to 2002, Merimee was Secretary-General Annan’s special assistant for European affairs. And there’s a possible Oil-for-Food connection to Annan’s son, Kojo, and brother, Kobina — themselves under investigation for their alleged involvement in the program.
