A knighthood for Kofi?

Just when we thought we'd seen it all, we spotted this story on Yahoo News:

The former UN secretary general Kofi Annan on Wednesday received an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in London.

The Ghanaian diplomat was made a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George (GCMG). The award was made during a private audience with the monarch at her Buckingham Palace residence.

The order, which was begun in 1818, is given to men and women of high office, or those who perform extraordinary non-military service in a Commonwealth or foreign country.

Annan, who won the Nobel peace prize in 2001, is not entitled to use the title "Sir" as he is not a British citizen.

So, this is his belated reward for covering up the Oil-For-Food (or is it fraud) scandal, the peacekeeper sex scandals, the covering up for thugs and dictators, and dawdling while the world's worst animals victimized innocent, freedom and peace-loving nations?

Personally, I'm a bit sickened by this. The man doesn't deserve a reward. He deserves admonishment and condemnation. He doesn't even deserve to be out walking free. His @$$ belongs in jail for the crimes he oversaw and covered up as the secretary general.
