Kofi still doesn’t get it:”Reacting

Kofi doesn’t get it:

“Reacting to a speech today by United States President George Bush, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan welcomed the US leader’s reaffirmation that the outcome of the Middle East peace process should be the establishment of a viable and credible State of Palestine – based on Security Council resolutions 242 and 338 – and security for Israel.”

Actually, I suspect Kofi got it just fine; he’s a bright guy. But I don’t think he quite knows how to deal with the “it” of an American administration that refuses to play by the usual Middle East Rules: i.e., treating murderers like negotiating partners.
