THE LOGIC NEXT STEP: Noted the contempt towards the United Nations and Kofi Annan lately? I have. Some criticism is well-reasoned; other criticism is livid ranting. But if the United Nations is such a horrible and ineffective institution (and in some instances it is, I'm sad to say), wouldn't it make sense to criticize President Bush's decision to leave America's exit strategy/plan to implement democracy in Iraq in the hands of the U.N.—the same establishment they loath so much? It would, wouldn't it? I myself don't think involving Lakhdar Brahimi is such a bad idea, but that's because I don't detest the organization he works for. (Brahimi did a pretty good job in Afghanistan, which explains my benevolence towards him.)
