Britain - BBC Falsely Claims Annan Cleared

Here is a copy of my email I sent to the BBC to try and get them to correct their version of reality. To wit, that Paul Volcker's investigation cleared Annan of any wrongdoing. This false claim is made on at least three BBC webpages.

Now that Volcker has gone on record saying he has not cleared Kofi Annan of wrongdoing in the UN oil for food scandal, will you please remove this factually incorrect article.

Volcker's statement is here:

"Asked point-blank whether Mr. Annan had been cleared of wrongdoing in the $10 billion scandal, Mr. Volcker replied, "No."

The same error is repeated in this BBC article as well:

And this one:

From reading the BBC website one would get the false impression that Annan has been cleared of wrongdoing in the Scandal. This clearly is not the case and you owe it to the public to correct the record.
