Bolton: Still Determined to Trash the U.N.

John Bolton has never been shy about attacking the United Nations for not holding its officials or programs accountable. Well, it appears (for now, at least) that the UN has just made an appropriate decision that holds one of its top officials accountable. According to Reuters:
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has decided to fire the head of the U.N. election unit, who has became a star in the world body for supervising polls in dangerous places like Afghanistan and Iraq, two U.N. officials said.

The reasons for the dismissal of Carina Perelli, a 48-year old Uruguayan, were harassment of staff and management lapses, the officials said Saturday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

... The Swiss firm Mannet SARL, in a leaked 22-page report in August, cited her personal courage and extensive knowledge of election procedures. But it said she had shown favoritism toward a small circle of employees and created an atmosphere of sexual jokes, unwelcome advances, and professional harassment.

"The work environment within the division is considered offensive by many of those interviewed and has contributed to emotional harm," the report said.
So did Bolton applaud the U.N.'s action? Nope.

As a matter of fact, the man who loves to hate the U.N. found another reason to bitch about the organization -- it holds people accountable at times that are inconvenient for the United States.

I suspect Bolton will always find a reason to trash the U.N.
