Na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye!

Fox brings us the tragic news that Kofi Annan plans to...wait for it...criticize us on his way out! I know, I know, can you believe it?

Outgoing U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan plans to offer a blistering criticism of the Bush administration's foreign policy in a farewell speech Monday to a crowd in Independence, Mo.
A copy of the speech obtained by FOX News, shows Annan is expected to accuse the U.S. administration of committing human rights abuses in the name of fighting terrorism, and of taking military action without broad international support.

Yes. Human rights abuses such as following the tenants of the Geneva Convention to the letter by NOT extending Geneva Convention rights to those who do not extend it themselves, or even meet the requirements set forth therein. And by the way, we didn't have international support because YOU did not give it to us. And now you want to lecture us on our actions, you who had no hand in the fighting?

"As President Truman said, 'The responsibility of the great states is to serve and not dominate the peoples of the world,"' Annan said.

Was that before or after he dropped two atomic bombs and annihilated two cities?

When "military force is used, the world at large will consider it legitimate only when convinced that it is being used for the right purpose … in accordance with broadly accepted norms," the speech says in reference to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

Unless of course you are Hezbollah and you are killing Jewish civilians, in which case you are simply a victim of your own tragic circumstance. In such cases, the UN will demand that you disperse and will slap you on the wrist. Not lightly either, we're talking a UN slap.

Goodbye Kofi. It's just too bad the UN isn't retiring as well.
