What if Kofi's last name was Haughey?

There still seems to be little outrage in Ireland regarding the oil-for-food scandal at the UN. This is despite the fact that Ireland places a very high value on the UN. In fact, the UN has de facto veto power over Irish defense policy thanks to the "triple lock".

So, where's the indignation? Why is there so little comment about the fact that, among others, Kofi Annan's son, his close personal adviser and his chosen director for the oil-for-food program have all been implicated in the scandal?

Until Annan has been proven to have links with Fianna Fáil the Irish media will have no interest in this story.
