Reality-based thinkers recognize that U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan is among the world’s foremost jihad-appeasers, as is the U.N. itself.
Annan has done and said things in recent years that are unmistakably subversive to freedom, and enabling of the very terrors that he claims he seeks to help prevent.
But several days ago, Annan even outdid himself to such an extent that I think can be attributed to one of only two causes - or possibly both:
(a) Syrian “president” Basher Assad has been studying hypnosis
(b) Assad slipped LSD to Kofi Annan during their last coffee klatch
Case in point - buried on page A23 of the September 2 Washington Post was this little gem:
Annan Says Syria Will Aid Arms Embargo
DAMASCUS, Syria, Sept. 1
U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said Friday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had promised to enforce an arms embargo on Hezbollah under a U.N. resolution that halted Israel's war with the Lebanese Shiite militia.

Annan actually believes this --- that the primary funnel of arms and money to Hezbollah is just going to shut off their spigot, because Kofi asked nicely?! Is that what we are supposed to believe? Apparently, we are.
As expected, the mainstream media see nothing odd about all this, and would rather devote their prime-time news segments to much more important stories - such as John Mark Karr's psychiatric status, the fallout of the MTV Music Video Awards, the 2006 political horse-race, whether or not Hillary Clinton is going to run for president in 2008, and various celebrity voyeurism.
And the MSM can't figure out why Americans' trust in their "reporting" is going down the tubes, farther than at any point in recent memory.
