Yahoo! led its news this morning (PST) with this headline: Kofi Annan: Syria efforts are failing:
Special U.N. envoy Kofi Annan acknowledged in an interview published Saturday that the international community’s efforts to find a political solution to the escalating violence in Syria have failed.
Does it strike others as odd or just par for the course that the United Nations would designate its failed former Secretary General as peace envoy — and that he would fail to resolve a stalemate between warring parties?
Seems almost emblematic of what Annan’s beloved U.N. has become.
