Kofi, You're Fired

I have been following the oil-for-food scandal, mostly via the excellent work of Roger L. Simon. Well, you can't have too many scandals at the United Nations, and since they've been doing such a great job, don't they deserve a great big (i.e. expensive) renovation project? There are plans to do a little work on U.N. headquarters, with a price tag of $1.2 billion.

The Daily Standard does the math, and concludes that anywhere from $500 million to $1 billion in expenses is unaccounted for. Donald Trump, who knows a little something about real estate, and who has built larger buildings for much less money, believes that the expenses projected by the U.N. can only be the result of graft or incompetence.

Ya think?
