Annanymous Ghost Writers

I can't decide whether I prefer Claudia Rosett's rewriting of Kofi Annan's farewell (and good riddance!) address or Iowahawk's; either is preferable to the speech he actually gave.

Unlike Annan, both Rosett and Iowahawk remembered to mention the outgoing Secretary-General's major accomplishments, notably the multibillion-dollar Oil-for-Food scandal and the numerous smaller frauds and conflicts-of-interest perpetrated by his son, Kojo Annan, by his closest aides and advisors, and by Annan himself.
