UN Scandals: Simply Bottomless?

So says Claudia Rosett of the New York Sun, one of the few journalists left that actually investigates and reports news, unlike her follow-the-liberal-herd bretheran. Just a little digging shows that Saddam and al-Qaeda may have been financially connected through a little UN program known as "Oil for Food". She looks at:

...a mysterious private company called IHC Services, which did big business with the procurement department until it was removed from U.N. rosters in June...It now appears that while doing business with the U.N., IHC had links both to Saddam Hussein’s old sanctions-busting networks, and to a Liechtenstein-based businessman, Engelbert Schreiber, Jr., known among other things for his ties to a figure designated by the U.N. itself as a financier of Al Qaeda.
