Putting The UN In Underaged

Given Kofi and son's Cotecna-Iraq oil antics, one might conclude there's a malignant oversight problem at the UN. Go a step further and take into account the genocides in Rwanda, Sudan and this mess in the Congo and one finds very convincing evidence that Kofi doesn't give a shit about his fellow Africans.

UNITED NATIONS — U.N. peacekeepers in Congo (search) sexually abused and exploited women and girls, some as young as 13, according to a report released by a U.N. watchdog agency Friday.

Peacekeepers regularly had sex with Congolese women and girls, usually in exchange for food or small sums of money, an investigation by the Office of Internal Oversight Services (search) found.

"It was clear that the investigation did not act as a deterrent for some of the troops, perhaps because they had not been made aware of the severe penalties for engaging in such conduct, nor had they seen any evidence of a negative impact on individual peacekeepers for such behavior," it said.

The investigators said some military officers had tried to block their work: "On several occasions, the commanders of these contingents either failed to provide the requested information or assistance or actively interfered with the investigation."

The problems were "serious and ongoing" and it was "disturbing" that there was no deterrence or protection program, the report by the U.N. oversight agency said.

The team investigated 72 allegations against both military and civilian U.N. personnel, which resulted in 20 case reports. One case involved a U.N. civilian; the others, peacekeepers.

"In six cases, the allegations against the peacekeeper were fully substantiated, and underage girls were involved in all of them," the report said, adding that none of the peacekeepers admitted to the allegations.

In other cases the evidence was either convincing, but not fully substantiated or could not be corroborated, according to the report.

In one case, a 14 year-old girl was given $1 or $2 or two eggs in return for sex. She was able to identify the soldier because he had a broken arm. She had sex with another soldier in return for $3 and a packet of milk.

Another 14 year-old girl was given $2, chocolate and bread in return for sex. A 13-year-old girl said she and her friends would go to the camp to have sex with different soldiers for between $3 and $5 for each sexual encounter.

Shame on me. I should be talking about Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.

When will we as a people DEMAND the EXPULSION of the UN from our land? When will we disengage ourselves from this unconstitutional, unelected Roman Senate that would have THE WORLD on its knees, sucking for money, bread and chocloate?

Being a New Yorker, it's a known fact that the Diplos don't even pay their parking tickets (numbering into the millions), yet many of you would trust them with the world.
