Speaking Publicly was a Fool's Errand

MENAFN - Middle East North Africa . Financial Network: " The son of U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Kojo, calls the inquiries into Iraq's oil-for-food program a U.S. Republican 'witchhunt,' CNN said Tuesday.
In a written statement to the network, the 31-year-old said: 'I have never participated directly or indirectly in any business related to the United Nations.'"

While this whole mess worries me greatly, I felt Kojo was playing it right to not comment. It would be difficult for him to say anything that would be helpful or shed light on the issue. I quietly applauded his PR people.
Now, here he is calling this a "Republican witchhunt". He went on to say that he never participated in any business directly or indirectly related to the UN. What in the world would he call his salary from Cotecna? Is he saying that those payments were never made? It seems Kofi has admitted publicly to as much. While this may take more elaboration for little old me to understand, it looks particularly easy to discount his word now.
