Well, Parton is having none of it, and as Simon reports, he is going public in a big way. Parton accuses the committee of being determined to protect Kofi and engaging in 'a de-factor coverup'.
At this point, two questions present themselves:
- How can we believe anything the committee says? If this were a trial, their evidence would now stand hopelessly impeached; and
- How can the UN possibly be taken seriously on any subject of import as long as Kofi Annan is at the head of the organization?
