You Cant Spell Unethical...

Without the UN

"Tretyakov, former deputy head of intelligence at Russia's U.N. mission from 1995 to 2000, names some names, but sticks mainly to code names. Among the spies he says he recruited for Russia were a Canadian nuclear weapons expert who became a U.N. nuclear verification expert in Vienna, a senior Russian official in the oil-for-food program and a former Soviet bloc ambassador. He describes a Russian businessman who got hold of a nuclear bomb, and kept it stored in a shed at his dacha outside Moscow."

"An 18-month investigation into the oil-for-food corruption, led by former
Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker, culminated in an October 2005 report
accusing more than 2,200 companies from some 40 countries of colluding with
Saddam's regime to bilk the humanitarian program in Iraq of $1.8 billion."
