Kofi Anan Bids Farewell

Outgoing United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Anan went to Independence, Missouri yesterday to deliver his farewell address. It was there, in the hometown of Harry S Truman (who helped create the U.N.) that Anan delivered some harshly worded criticism of the current occupant of the White House.

Anan warned that that the U.S. should not sacrifice its democratic ideas and freedoms as it wages the War Against Terror. "Human rights and the rule of law are vital to global security and prosperity," he said, and that when America "appears to abandon its own ideals and objectives, its friends abroad are naturally troubled and confused."

In response, Bush ordered Anan arrested and sent to the Guantanamo Bay Prison where he will be forced to participate in the annual naked human pyramid building competition.
