Collin Powell Defends his Brother Kofi...

I am not a big fan of Collin Powell or Kofi Annan. If you have been following the rage coming from the American right in the last few months you know that they have been on a roll in their attacks on Kofi Annan. Kofi Annan is at the center of a controversy concerning the UN oil for food program. Most of those on the right have already concluded that Kofi is guilty and the senator from Minnesota have called for Kofi Annan’s resignation, although no improprieties have been proven to have happen as a result of his action or inaction in regards to the oil for food program. Right now there are a lot of allegations being tossed around including ones that state Kofi is trying to derail the investigation.

Collin Powell has done like a brother should do when his brother is under attack and being called many things without any proof of those things and no hearings haven been held, Collin Powell stated that Kofi Annan is a Good UN Secretary General. I see this as Collin Powell not having the knee jerk reaction that most white conservatives are having in regards to Kofi Annan’s alleged role in the Oil for food Program. Clearly those on the right are going after the UN because of the UN’s stance on the Iraq war, Collin knows this so he did like every brother should do, and he said his brother was a Good UN Secretary General until proven otherwise in regards to this oil for food investigation.

Now I know some of you will respond or would have responded about Kofi failings in other areas especially in regards to solving conflicts throughout Africa and especially his complete and utter failure to stop the slaughter of our brothers and sisters in the Sudan. I could not agree more with anyone who criticize Kofi for his inaction in these area’s but we all know the current investigation being undertaken by the US congress does not have anything to do with the loss of Black life in Africa and have everything to do with the UN not supporting Bush war in Iraq.

Big ups to Collin Powell for coming out a day after the Senator from Minnesota called for Kofi Annan’s resignation. Collin stated unequivocally; "These investigations are not of Mr. Annan, they are of the oil-for-food program, so let's wait and see what the results of these investigations are." That devil from Minnesota can pick his chin up off the floor now. I wonder will other Negro-Cons do as Collin has done, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
