  • Iraq: Clash Between U.S. Congress, UN Clouds Inquiry RFE/RL 11 May 2005 -- The independent commission investigating abuses of the UN's oil-for-food program in Iraq is itself now under suspicion by several U.S. congressional bodies. Some leading U.S. lawmakers are worried that the commission is avoiding tough scrutiny of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. A dispute has also developed over congressional attempts to obtain documents from the commission. Investigations have so far found mismanagement and improper behavior by UN officials, but congressional experts believe the UN is hiding more serious abuses.
