Re: Annan

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

In that NYTimes piece I just linked to on the U.N., this seems unfortunate:

One of the members of the group had prepared for the session by finding out if the Bush administration was siding with those in Congress who were calling for Mr. Annan’s resignation or whether it would support his resolve to stay in office until the end of his term in December 2006.

The official, a onetime senior government figure in Washington with close ties to the Bush administration, said he concluded that “they were not going to draw the sword against Kofi.”
