The Corner


Kofi Annan’s second in command delivered a commencement address at Pace University Law School yesterday and referred to an “ungainly giant.” No, Mark Malloch Brown wasn’t refusing to the United Nations. He was talking about the United States: “This ungainly giant of a nation that has led the world in advancing freedom, democracy and decency, cannot quite accept membership in the global neighborhood association, and the principle of all neighborhoods – that it must abide by others’ rules as well as its own.”

Hey, who you calling “ungainly,” Brown? And do the “rules” that the United States are supposed to abide by actually include looking the other way when the peacekeepers and aide workers employed by your “neighborhood association” rape women and turn them into sex workers?
