Because of its rarefied position, the U.N. must regain its credibility and fulfill its obligations with impeccable integrity.
These are the facts. And those facts point to an inescapable conclusion: For the good of the U.N., Kofi Annan must step aside and a true reformer be appointed. The time for half-measures passed long ago.
Now change U.N. to U.S., and Kofi Annan to President Bush. Apply the same logic to your Annan editorial as to the current government, who has blamed everyone for the lies about the Iraqi War except the one person who should be held responsible, the "C.E.O." of the United States.
I think they've been calling the wrong person "Curveball."
