I'm watching the FOX investigation into UN corruption in the food for oil program. Suggest you tune in Apparently various UN members like france made billions from it. Supposedly Iraq would only be able to use money earned from the sale of oil to but humanitarian supplies. Sadam's trading partners were base in sweden and bahamas. He sold oil at cut rate to specific partners. Who then sold at a higher price and put a part of profit in secret accounts for saddam. He also got a kick back from the people he bought "food" from by paying inflated prices Saddam racked up 10 billion in cash Only 7-10% of "approved" shipments to iraq. Wow lots of coruption basically unless the U.S. shot it down most things were approved. Vouchers were given to people who could buy money on a list leaked to iraqi press many names were named including pres. of a canadian oil comp children of mid east political leaders 46 Members of Russian gov 12 members of Russian gov one of which is close to Jac Chirac and the name sava (sp?) which is also part of the name of the person who was supposed to be in charge of watching the food for oil program the list shows him getting 3 million in oil vouchers france 2.9 billion china 2. somethin billion russia 1.something billion govs in selling "food" to iraq. individual companies made more. Not in the report but an interesting side note the only 2 Abrams lost to enemy fire were hit in the rear by a new Russian Anti Tank weapon specifically designed to destroy the Abrams tank. Obviuosly Iraq wasnt allowed to have that.
