To all those Republicans who are calling for Kofi Annan’s resignation over his son’sinvolvement in the Oil-for-Food scandal, go take a long walk off a short dock. You’ve got to be kidding me. You guys support a Secretary of Defense who oversees a conflict in which American troops (and the new Attorney General) were implicated in torturing prisoners and then foolishly attempting to justify it under law. Look, money and oil are one thing. Torturing people is another. If you want credibility, call for Donald Rumsfeld’s resignation — he knew as much about the torture going on at Abu Ghraib as Kofi Annan knew of his son’s financial transactions (that is, if we take Donald’s word for it). Talk about moral relativism.
