Well, yeah, "gets" might be the wrong word. But these are elegantly tight and to-the-point questions:
[I]s the Oil-for-Food scandal characteristic of the UN, or not? Is the Abu Ghraib scandal characteristic of the US Armed Forces, or not?

Which body acted swiftly to investigate? Which body opened itself to public hearings and condemnations? Which body put the bad guy in the dock, held a trial, and pronounced sentence?
Has the UN even apologised yet? Did I miss it?

UPDATE: An Iraqi editorial writer thinks the oil for food scandal is more serious than Abu Ghraib.
