Bush Fails To Inform U.N. Of Iran Nuclear Program
By Dario McRobotface
JERUSALEM—In a surprise and significant development in U.N. relations, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan announced Monday that he had failed to inform the U.N. Security Council of Iran's nuclear program, despite having been notified of past U.N. reports which stated that Iran was engaged in an illegal clandestine nuclear program. "I must stress, however, that I have full confidence in Kofi Annan's ability to perform his important role of informing the international community of the existence of Iran's clandestine nuclear program," Annan said. "I'm very disappointed, and I am certain that the U.N. will soon be forced to make the difficult but necessary decision to formally recognize Iran's nuclear program." Annan added that he would be willing to meet with U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan in person if the two could reach a negotiated solution.
