Oil-For-Food Investigators Resign In Protest Over Whitewash

Hmmm... the media seems to like some whistleblowers; you think they'll take an interest in these two?

Two senior investigators with the committee probing corruption in the U.N. oil-for-food program have resigned in protest, saying they believe a report that cleared Kofi Annan of meddling in the $64 billion operation was too soft on the secretary-general, a panel member confirmed Wednesday.

The investigators felt the Independent Inquiry Committee, led by former U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker, played down findings critical of Annan when it released an interim report in late March related to his son, said Mark Pieth, one of three leaders of the committee.

...

The investigators were identified as Robert Parton and Miranda Duncan.

...

Pieth acknowledged disagreements within the committee about how to interpret the evidence on Annan, but he denied investigators were censored.

...

Pieth added, however, that he believed the two investigators got "personally very involved" in the probe and so grew upset. "Again, this is the nature of things," he said.

God forbid that investigators should get "personally very involved" in an investigation into the biggest dollar-amount swindle in human history.

Obviously, they're nuts. And that Miranda-- probably a "stalker." Confabulating some sort of fantasy sexual affair with the very dapper Kofi Annan.

Parton, too, probably. Kofi's the sort of guy that just makes people of any sexual orientation swoon.

Proof? Ask Paul Volcker.
