The UN takes credit for Iraqi elections

This would be laughable, if it weren’t so baffling: Kofi Annan has written an editorial in the Washington Post, basically giving the UN the credit for the Iraqi elections. Even better, he doesn’t even mention the US role in there at all. I mean, to an alien it would seem that the UN was the only body in Iraq.

Here are some shocking lines:
[...]we all share a common agenda: to move Iraq from the starting point -- its successfully completed elections -- to a peaceful, prosperous and democratic future.

Oh, I get it...after the coalition forces have done a lot of the dirty work, the UN is going to swoop in and take credit for the little help they offered? If the elections were to have been a massive failure, do you think Kofi Annan would have taken responsibility for that too?
And get this: for them THIS is the starting point. Everything before doesn’t count for anything. Unbelievable.

I could go on, but Wizbang has already done it better.
