Iraq: UN Failed Us

The US isnít the only country in the world unhappy with the UN.

Iraq's foreign minister [Hoshyar Zebari] accused the United Nations on Tuesday of failing his country by leaving Saddam Hussein in power for decades and appealed to the world body to assume a leading role in Baghdad immediately.

Ö

Zebari said the United Nations had failed to help rescue Iraq from "a murderous tyranny" that lasted more than 35 years and "today we are unearthing thousands of victims in horrifying testament to that failure."

"The United Nations must not fail the Iraqi people again," Zebari said.
