In another display of the value of the United Nations, Secretary-General Kofi Annan today announced that women brutally raped by Sudanese government forces would each receive a free copy of the latest report documenting the widespread, savage abuse.
"It legitimizes their suffering and lets them know that they are not alone," said Mr. Annan, as he held aloft a copy of the 29-page report. "This is why the United Nations is so desperately needed in today's world. We will continue to take bold action in producing reports on the rape and abuse of Sudanese women. The U.N. exists to fearlessly monitor tragic violence against oppressed people by government forces in our U.N. member states."
One woman in Darfur, who had been sexually assaulted by an armed Sudanese law enforcement official while on an excursion to gather firewood, welcomed the free copy of the report.
"Perhaps I can use the paper to make fire," said the unnamed rape victim. "I only wish it was a much longer document so I wouldn't have to risk gathering wood again soon."
You know what it says about the UN when I thought this was true before noticing it was from scrappleface.
My thoughts exactly
It took me a moment as well.
Exactly. I could just see Coffee standing there with a pile of folders, and his "live from Planet Zongo" expression. There is a hot, hot place waiting for these people.

I can just hear drather saying 'Even though the document is false, the story is true' -- Fake, but accurate!
That's why Al Franken is never funny.
So did I.
Sudan is one of the few places in the world where slavery is still a fact of life.
On this we hear nothing from so-called civil rights leaders in the U.S. or from the United Nations.
Get us OUT of the UN and get the UN OUT of the US.
"On this we hear nothing from so-called civil rights leaders in the U.S. or from the United Nations. "
Of course not, if they admitted the problem they might be pressured to do something about it - bloody gutless wonders. So much easier to trash Bush because they know he won't kick their butts like he should
NOW and NARAL behave exactly the same - terrified of supporting women who are really in trouble behind the sharia curtain.
