The Definitive Resource List: Oil-for-Food Scandal Articles -- Claudia Rosett

U.N. Oil-for-Food Scandal -- Exposing the U.N. Oil-for-Food Scandal

FDD Journalist-in-Residence Claudia Rosett has been recognized for her groundbreaking work exposing the corruption behind the U.N.'s Oil-for-Food program. As U.S. News and World Report senior writer Michael Barone explained: "The U.N. Oil for Food program, we learn from the reporting of Claudia Rosett in The Wall Street Journal, was a rip-off on the order of $21 billion -- with money intended for hungry Iraqis going instead to Saddam Hussein and his henchmen, to bribed French and Russian businesses and, evidently, to the U.N.'s own man in charge, Benon Savan."

There are 40+ articles listed with dates, publication names (various, not just one media outlet), and the links -- a great resource.

In this section you will find background information and recommended reading on the war on terror.

Sample article: The Other "Axis of Evil" Paul Crespo, American Legion Magazine, July 1, 2003 -- I included this sample because so much has been written on the US-Mexico border lately, the Mara Salvatrucha, potential terrorists entering the US illegally from the south, et cetera. I think Canadians should become more aware.
