Why Is This Story So Underreported?
The evidence continues to mount that the U.N.'s 1990's oil-for-food program was horribly corrupt. William Safire has been on the trail of the story for a couple weeks now. Why hasn't more media might been dedicated to this story?

One plausible answer: Richard Clarke.

Fair enough. Perhaps, as Richard Clarke charges, the our misadventures in Iraq have drained essential resources from the fight on al Qaeda. But it may also be the case that the huge attention paid to Clarke's claims have diverted media resources from this story. Hearings are coming next month. Trust me, this will be major.
