Department of an Example to the Commander in Chief

"Acting on a damning report of United Nations security failures in the bombing of its Baghdad headquarters last August, Secretary General Kofi Annan fired his chief of global security, demoted a second senior official, penalized three staff members and received — but did not accept — the resignation of his own deputy, his spokesman said Monday."

If only Bush would have done the same after the much greater security failure(s) of Sept. 11, 2001. Read the rest of the story here (it gets pretty low-profile play, by the way, appearing on page 12 of the Times' first section).
