AN IMPLICIT VILLAIN OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY
From a news item posted by Younghusband

, we learn that Tongsun Park
, the bagman of the Koreagate scandal during the Carter administration who somehow escaped prosecution ( the Democratic Party controlling the White House and both Houses of Congress back then had nothing
to do with such prosecutorial leniency by the DOJ) resurfaced as Saddam's bagman in the UN Oil-for-Food scandal
Errr... don't we even try to keep track of these shadowy cut-outs and jet-setting intriguers like Park, Marc Rich, Manucher Ghorbanifar and so on ? Why didn't Park's antics in the Oil for Food program set off any Counterintelligence alarm bells ? You would think that a guy who was essentially caught bribing key figures in the House of Representatives being seen waltzing around UN bigwigs might have rated some attention.
