Saddam to Park to Strong to Paul Martin with Kofi in the mix.

Canada: Via Instapundit.

The Canadian company that Saddam Hussein invested a million dollars in belonged to the Prime Minister of Canada, has discovered. Cordex Petroleum Inc., launched with Saddam’s million by Prime Minister Paul Martin’s mentor Maurice Strong’s son Fred Strong, is listed among Martin’s assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003. Among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets are: "The Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"; "Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"–Cordex Petroleums Inc. (Alberta, Canada) 4.6 percent owned by the CSL Group Inc."
Via Reuters who makes it sounds less sinister.
According to a criminal complaint filed by U.S. federal prosecutors last week, Park told an informant he had invested about $1 million in an unnamed Canadian company set up by the son of a high-ranking U.N. official, who was not identified. Strong has now confirmed that he was that U.N. official, the Toronto Globe and Mail reported on Thursday. The company that Park had invested in was Cordex Petroleums Inc., a Calgary oil company, the newspaper said. Strong and his son Frederick Strong were major investors in Cordex in the 1990s, along with CSL Group Inc., a holding company owned by Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, it said.
More on Strong's world view from the National Post.
As for the Cordex link with Mr. Martin and his holding company, it reminds us of Mr. Strong's influence on the Prime Minister. Where, for example, might Mr. Martin have come up with the idea for "global equalization," which amounts to the fulfillment of The Communist Manifesto? Indeed, when it comes to his international posturing, at times Mr. Martin has seemed less like a Liberal candidate than The Manchurian Candidate (original version). We might also remember that after Gomery, the Liberals' next biggest policy headache is the one masterminded by Mr. Strong at Rio: Kyoto. With friends like Mr. Strong, does Mr. Martin need any more enemies?
