The Oil-for-Food Scandal

One of the numerous issues that I wanted to write about but haven't had the time to cover is the controversy surrounding the UN Oil-for-Food program. Roger L. Simon, among others, has done some excellent blogging on this issue. Probably the best source on this topic is the incredible work of journalist Claudia Rossett. For many months, Ms. Rossett was virtually the only journalist covering this scandal. It is in substantial part due to her tireless efforts that the corruption of the UN bureaucracy responsible for administering the OIF program has been exposed. Commentator Hugh Hewitt has even proposed that Ms. Rossett be nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Ms. Rossett is affiliated with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, and you can access her articles on the OIF scandal through the FDD Web site. If you are interested in this issue, you'll definitely want to give them a look.
