EXCLUSIVE: Cash for computers: Is the U.N. busting its own sanctions in North Korea?
10 hours ago

An agency of the United Nations has quietly shipped computers and sophisticated computer servers to the government of North Korea, despite ongoing U.N. sanctions against the regime for its efforts to build nuclear weapons, Fox News has learned.

The complicated method chosen by the Geneva-based agency, the U.N.’s World Intellectual Property Organization, or WIPO, to carry out the transaction seems designed to bypass safeguards specifically created by U.N. authorities to prevent a repeat of previous U.N. scandals involving shipments to North Korea.

I dunno..I was hoping with the change in the thrown over there, things might get a bit better.
