    This story has been going around for quite a few months now. I'm glad they're actually going to investigate it because it will shed a little light on the true motivations of some of those who thought going to war was wrong.

    Basically, Saddam offered a coupon to certain people to sell oil at a certain price, these people then turned around and sold the coupon to companies and countries that actually wanted the oil at market rate and the crook diplomat gets the rake. Pretty simple.

    The plot thickens....

    http://nypost.com/news/worldnews/22032.htm

    Kurdish officials in northern Iraq also made repeated complaints about the fact that Iraq, with U.N. approval, kept Americans, Britons and Scandinavians off the staff that administered the 13 percent of the oil-for-food proceeds earmarked for Kurdish provinces. Only workers from countries perceived to be friendly to Iraq were approved. Howard Ziad, the Kurdish representative to the United Nations, told The Post that Kurdish authorities made repeated complaints to U.N. higher-ups that the staff assigned to his region was riddled with spies working for Iraqi intelligence.

    In July 2001, Kurdish security forces arrested a Tunisian U.N. employee with a car full of explosives meant for a terror bombing in Erbil. He was held for four months until the United Nations quietly negotiated his release, Ziad said.
