Iraq + Oil-for-Food = Al-Qaeda?

This true?

[quote]The scandal engulfing the United Nations Procurement Department and the Oil-for-Food Programme allegedly involved Al-Qaeda finance operations. Fox News broke the story that Alexander Yakovlev, a Russian official in the UN Procurement Department, was involved; he later resigned and pled guilty to corruption charges. One link was to Ahmed Idris Nasreddin, a man designated as a terrorist financier by the US and the UN. The UN has named Nasreddin as a man "belonging to or affiliated with Al Qaeda." Petra Navigation Group was a company that was on the blacklist of firms blocked from doing business with the U.S. for sanctions-busting activities designed to help Saddam's regime.

There's so much graft and corruption going on with these UN funded programs if it was ever fully disclosed it would turn the world upside down. Been going on for years.

Wikipedia is edited by CIA drones (the human ones).

It might be true, but as r1 says, everyone benefits from UN corruption.

OP, when you read the words "Fox News broke the story" you can rest assured that it's at best, a half-assed representation of a quarter of the facts and at worst just a complete fabrication.

Really, you have to check your sources.
