Rosett on Oil-For-Food #48

This time Ms. Rosett tells the tale of Jean-Bernard Merimee, former French Ambassador to the U.N. A key assistant and advisor to Kofi Annan, Merimee was arrested in connection with the Oil-For-Food investigation. His name appears on documentation of Saddam's bribes to cooperative diplomats and officials, paid with oil allocations that could be resold for cash. Just another bureaucrat who didn't give a shit about the Iraqi people, but used his position to enrich himself with oil dollars that belonged to them. Maybe he's the guy who will finally roll over on Kofi Annan. Hey, I can dream.
