Too Legit to Live

John Kerry, speaking at Westminster College, April 30, 2004 (emphasis added):

The coalition should endorse the Brahimi plan for an interim Iraqi government, it should propose an international High Commissioner to work with the Iraqi authorities on the political transition, and it should organize an expanded international security force, preferably with NATO, but clearly under US command.

Once these elements are in place, the coalition would then go to the UN for a resolution to ratify the agreement. The UN would provide the necessary legitimacy. The UN is not the total solution but it is a key that opens the door to participation by others.

Osama bin Laden, ostensibly, as reported today:

"The United Nations is nothing but a Zionists' tool, even if it worked under the cover of providing humanitarian aid," the voice said. "... Whoever kills Kofi Annan or the head of his commission in Iraq or a representative like Lakhdar Brahimi, he will be awarded the same prize of 10,000 grams of gold."
Such is the price of legitimacy, eh, Kofi?

(Via Meryl Yourish, who'd like to know why those wacky Zionists in the U.N. have been so silent on the Hatuel murders).
