U.N. Naiveté

A note from our Chris Burger:

Tuesday’s suicide bombing of the U.N. headquarters in Iraq killed at least 23 people. It has been reported that some of the guards at the headquarters were former Iraqi intelligence officials and might have assisted in the bombing.

Two questions come to mind: Why would the U.N. employ Saddam loyalists as security personnel? Second, why do liberals continue to demand that the U.N. dictate America’s foreign policy? If it were not for the tragic nature of this situation, the ineptness of the U.N. would almost be comical. Notch up one more point for President Bush on why he was right to attack Saddam’s sadistic regime with or without U.N. approval.
