All Things Considered, August 8, 2005 · A former United Nations procurement official pleads guilty to taking nearly $1 million in bribes from contractors in the U.N. Oil-for-Food program in Iraq. The move came after U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan lifted the diplomatic immunity of the official, Alexander Yakovlev.
Looks like it's not just the Bu$h administration. <gasp> There's crooked people in the U.N. as well?? Any question as to whether or not other people made money of off Bu$h going to Iraq?

Unfortunately greed is human nature. Some people (i.e. Bush and cronies, Bill Gates, Oil barons, etc.) have taken it to a fucking art form is all.
