Annan Rebukes Bush

From Holden:

A preview of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s opening remarks to the UN General Assembly today:

“Those who seek to bestow legitimacy must themselves embody it, and those who invoke international law must themselves submit to it,” Annan said, according to his prepared remarks.

“In Iraq, we see civilians massacred in cold blood while relief workers, journalists and other non-combatants are taken hostage and put to death in the most barbarous fashion,” he said.

“At the same time, we have seen Iraqi prisoners disgracefully abused,” he said, drawing a parallel between the Iraq bloodshed and the prisoner scandal in a way destined to irk Bush, who was to due to speak after Annan.

Meanwhile Condi is busy contradicting herself while simultaneously proving she has no idea what is going on in Iraq on the Matt Lauer Fellatio Hour:

“This insurgency has no political program. This is an anarchist insurgency. They simply either want to take Iraq back to the old days of Saddam Hussein or to turn Iraq into the Taliban,” she added.
