VANCOUVER, January 28, 2004 ( – Kofi Annan, who was the UN head of peacekeeping during the Rwandan massacre, ignored warnings from Canadian General Romeo Dallaire, the UN commanding officer in Rwanda during the crisis, as Michael Campbell harks back to the events in his Tuesday Vancouver Sun article.

A related special report revealed that, since the April of 1996 revelations by Dallaire, inquiries made by France and Belgium into the horrific massacre indicated UN complicity.  Dallaire had discovered information on the planned massacres in Rwanda which led him to present a plan to UN high command which, according to military analysts, would have brought a swift end to the Rwandan massacre and saved hundreds of thousands of lives. In 1998, the Associated Press confirmed that the present UN Secretary General and then head of UN peacekeeping operations Kofi Annan, was informed of Dallaire’s plan in January of 1994. AP noted that Iqbal Riza, Mr Annan’s senior adviser, admitted that the reply forbidding Dallaire to take action to halt the genocide was sent from Annan’s office.  Kofi Annan is scheduled to be the first foreign dignitary to address Canadian parliament – not surprising when you consider that the UN secretary-general’s chief advisor, Canadian Maurice Strong, is also a top aide and close friend of Prime Minister Paul Martin.

The December 2003 CLC News depicts Strong as a leading advocate of one-world global governance; a radical environmentalist who is associated with people and movements that advocate depopulating the world; an advocate of setting legal limits on family size; and a promoter of a new ‘global ethic’ to replace existing religions.  Read the related report “UN Kangaroo Court Diverts Blame from UN Leadership for Rwandan Genocide” at:   Read the Vancouver Sun article by Michael Campbell at:
