UNSCAM: The United Nations has been very critical of Bush over the war in Iraq, missing WMD, and prisoner abuse scandal. Bush, for the most part, has been forthcoming in answering those critics, even if they haven't been satisfied with the results. Now it's time to turn the tables.

Bush is calling for the United Nations to answer why it and its member countries accepted bribes from Saddam Hussein so he could use the oil-for-food program to buy weapons. What was supposed to be a humanitarian program became rife with corruption and dishonesty.

With President Bush demanding answers, he brings much needed attention to a scandal that the world media has largely overlooked. While some Republicans are already calling for Kofi Annan's ouster, Bush has decided to take a diplomatic approach by holding off on such drastic measures -- for now.
