Pity Poor Benan

He's a victim:

BENON Sevan, the former head of the UN oil-for-food programme in Iraq, has resigned from the world body and criticised UN chief Kofi Annan for "sacrificing" him as he faced an inquiry into his role in the scandal-plagued aid scheme, his lawyer said Sunday.

But I don't feel too sorry for him. What come to mind instead is the old aphorism that there is no honor among thieves.
