Hold Your Applause

Claudia Rosett's masterpiece, "Opportunity Lost - The Speech Kofi Annan Should Have Delivered" defies excerpting and simply must be read in its entirety. So go now. We'll be here waiting.

There's another very good, link-rich post on Annan's departure by Ken McCracken that you should see too. (via PJM)

And in the interest of equal time, Washington Monthly has an essay by William Dobson that treats the outgoing Secretary General much more kindly. (via RCP)
