Kofi Atta Annan April 8, 1938 to August 2018 18 was a Ghanaian diplomat who served as the seventh Secretary General of the United Nations, from January 1997 to December 2006. Annan and the UN were the co recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. He was the founder and chairman of the Kofi Annan Foundation, as well as chairman of The Elders, an international organization founded by Nelson Mandela.
It is clear to see the omissive and complicit behavior of the United Nations and other supranational levels of government. There has been an in continuo Chemical Assault Scorched Earth in the United States for 31 years. Anan nor the United Nations have recognized concrete history. National and groupist interests sway the hand at every level of governance. Mass destruction in Africa and the Middle East escalates with usually only the United States to check such. This is increasingly difficult in an environment when this state is abusive and permits abuse to escalate at home.
In 1996, Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali ran unopposed for a second term. Although he won 14 of the 15 votes on the Security Council, he was vetoed by the United States. After four deadlocked meetings of the Security Council, Boutros Ghali suspended his candidacy, becoming the only Secretary General ever to be denied a second term. Annan was the leading candidate to replace him, beating Amara Essy by one vote in the first round. However, France vetoed Annan four times before finally abstaining. The UN Security Council recommended Annan on 13 December 1996. Confirmed four days later by the vote of the GeneralAssembly, he started his first term as Secretary General on 1 January 1997.
Anan's legacy is highly suspect. It is clear his actions were illegal in his silence regarding human rights abuse in his cognition.
