"Oil for no blood" (Saddam's, that is) 

The investigation is still going on, but this is a good round-up of what's been happening with the KPMG audit of the UN's "Oil for Food" programme.

By the time it's finished, it's likely that a lot of people will be caught with oily hands, and the United Nations will have a lot of explaining to do about how it has ignored Saddam's turning of this humanitarian programme into a scam and a reverse protection racket.

"In a scathing letter sent to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on March 3, which he made available to Insight, Hankes-Drielsma [the head of the KPMG team] called the U.N. program "one of the world's most disgraceful scams," and said that 'based on the facts as I know them at the present time, the U.N. failed in its responsibility to the Iraqi people and the international community at large'."

Beats the Nigerian scam.
