Captain's Quarters has the unreported scoop on OFF and Annan
: "In an interview aired yesterday with Fox News, Mr. Volcker took direct issue with Mr. Annan's insistence that he had been exonerated by investigators probing both his role in overseeing the Iraq aid program and conflicts of interest involving a key contract awarded to a Swiss firm that employed Mr. Annan's son.
'I thought we criticized [Mr. Annan] rather severely,' Mr. Volcker said of his panel's interim report, released March 29. 'I would not call that an exoneration.'
Asked point-blank whether Mr. Annan had been cleared of wrongdoing in the $10 billion scandal, Mr. Volcker replied, 'No.'"
