Speaking of Safire

A letter in the New York Times yestrerday:

To the Editor:

I was surprised to see my name in William Safire's March 29 column about the United Nations oil-for-food program for Iraq.

Mr. Safire would be well advised not to hold his breath for my telephone call ("call me"), as I am neither embittered nor an ex-United Nations type.

Rather, since 1998 I have been serving as director for Inter-Agency Coordination at the United Nations and am not associated in any way with the oil-for-food program.

As Mr. Safire knows, the secretary general has already ordered an independent inquiry that will bring out all the facts pertaining to this matter.
