“Oil for Enron”
Claudia Rosett has a new essay that includes her usual mix of fresh reporting and analysis that begins:
Since the Oil for Food program came to an end in 2003, it has been described — accurately enough — as oil for palaces, oil for terror and oil for fraud. Now it turns out the U.N. relief program in Iraq was also oil for Enron.
Read the whole thing.
Interestign sidenote: Claudia’s piece appears in its usual place in OpinionJournal.com, but it is also in the print edition of the WSJ. I have long been puzzled as to why the Journal does not put all of her pieces in ink as she is one of the finest if not the best invetsigative essayist at work today. Perhaps today’s double placement will be a regular feature.
