The UN `edits' report on Hariri murder in coverup charges

In typical UN fashion, Kofi Annan and friends vetted the long awaited report on Rafik Hariri's assasination as UN investigator Detlev Mehlis admitted he excised five senior Syrian officials’ names from the published version of his report from the original, including Assad's brother Maher and Gen. Assef Shawqat, the president’s brother-in-law and military intelligence chief.

The other three are: Gen. Roustum Ghazali, head of special external intelligence and former Syrian military intelligence chief in Lebanon, Gen. Hassan Khalil, liaison between the various Syrian intelligence bodies, and Col. Mohsein Hamoud, a former military intelligence officer who served in Lebanon.

VOA News - Controversy Swells Over UN Hariri Murder Report

Given the UN's current rep for corruption, I wouldn't be surprised if money changed hands!

Condi Rice and the Bush administration better not be expecting any meaningful UN sanctions on Syria anytime soon...
