How Much has the UN’s Crime Cost the Western World?

The New York Post [1] opines today:

“The latest line from Turtle Bay is that the Oil-for-Food mess isn’t really a scandal at all, just an anti-U.N. plot inspired by ‘right-wingers’ – or, alternatively, by former Iraqi exile Ahmed Chalabi.
Those are shameful lies.
In fact, the Iraqi Governing Council has been probing the mess since January, when the Baghdad newspaper Al-Mada published its now-famous list of the 270 officials from 44 countries who were bribed with oil vouchers by Saddam “

Seems to me we have a very real possibility that it will be the UN, and not the US or the UK, that drives the average man in the Arab Street into the arms of the Islamofacists.
