This from the wayback: I spoke with Denis Halliday, the former UN Assistant Secretary-General and resigned Head of the UN Oil for Food Programme in Iraq about the plight of a people surviving on the wrong side of an embargo. Now, Halliday is aboard the MV Rachel Corrie as it steams through the Mediterranean towards Gaza, not heeding the threats of Israel's bloody-handed navy it's fitting he's back to try again to end another remorseless siege.

Denis Halliday and the U.N.'s genocide by decree.
