Trouble in River City!

Oil-for-Food Arrest Linked to Bolton Arrival at U.N.:
(2005-08-09) -- Just eight days after John Bolton's recess appointment as U.N. Ambassador, the world body's credibility took a nosedive as corruption charges were leveled against top officials involved in the $64 billion Iraq oil-for-food scandal.

With one arrest yesterday and more expected shortly, experts naturally noted the connection between the arrival of the gruff American diplomat and the crisis at the United Nations.

"We warned President Bush against picking Bolton," said one Senate Democrat, "and now look what's happened -- criminal allegations in the world's most credible organization."
It's Scrappleface, but these days it's always hard to tell.
