Scott Rosenberg makes a comparison between the way Republicans handle accusations against Republicans, compared to their treatment of accusations against others:

“Secretary Rumsfeld, meet Secretary Annan. You two gentlemen have a certain amount in common these days. Isn’t it amazing, though, how differently the Republican powers-that-be view your two cases?”

Republicans have absolute power now… Later he writes,

“In my book — pardon me, I should say “according to my moral values” — corruption is bad, but torturing people and launching unnecessary wars under false pretenses is worse. (Of course, there’s a theory that the Republicans are just getting Annan back for his criticisms of the Iraq war. But they’re above that. Er, right?)”

As far as I know, no one has even SEEN any actual evidence against the UN. Have you? So far it’s just a bunch of right-wing charges. And we know ALL about right-wing charges.
