I checked to confirm this allegation on this proposed act by the Under Secretary of Interior for Territorial Affairs, Pedro San Juan.
On one of my trips to Washington D.C., I personally made an effort to see Mr. San Juan
I told him I would like to see any documents or letters he may have written proposing to appoint the Attorney General or the ASG Treasurer.
told me, "Avi, I have heard those allegations by Fofo.
According to San Juan
, "we just did not want to meddle with your local problems.
When we decided to grant your local people the right to elect their own Governor, our policy was hands off on issues arising out of your own administration of local policies.
Such cases as complained on by the Acting Associate Judge did not rise to the level of considering changing the Constitution of your Territory
Now the issue can come to rest, as there is no written document to verify allegations accusing Mr. San Juan

Commentary by Howard Phillips. The Constitutional Government Blog
The April 19 Washington Times carries an article by Pedro San Juan, former political affairs director in the United Nations Secretariat and author of the forthcoming book, 'U.N. Gang", to be published by Doubleday.
I have not seen Pedro in a number of years since I first met him while I was on the staff of the Republican National Committee (1966-1968).
came up with the idea for a new organization to be called "Close Up
", by means of which high school and college students from all over America would be brought to Washington, D.C. to learn more about the operations of government.
assured me "Close Up
" would be non-partisan and it seemed to me to be a good idea.
Accordingly, I acceded his
request that I line up prominent Republicans to be co-sponsors of the "Close Up
This was to be an entirely private sector operation.
Sometime later, however, Pedro
got the idea that the program could reach many more people if it were subsidized by the Federal government.

, welcome to Frontpage Interview.It is a privilege to speak with you.Sanjuan
: Glad to be here.
FP: We're here today to talk about your insider's view of the U.N. failings.You have an incredible experience in having been a spy on spies.Let's start by you giving us a brief background about yourself and how you ended up being motivated to write this book.Sanjuan
: Well, as you note, I have worked in seven different U.S. government departments, including being on the White House
staff and two presidential appointments.I have seen my share of bureaucratic incompetence and malfeasance.Seeing the incompetence, corruption, espionage and anti-Semitism first-hand at the United Nations over a period of ten years led me to feel that it was important that the rest of the world be made aware of such outrageous failings at the United Nations.
FP: Why do you think the outrageous failings at the U.N.
are ignored by the mainstream media?Sanjuan
: For over fifty years during the Cold War the goings-on at the UN
were limited to irrelevant issues by both superpowers.
: To begin with the library at the UN
was almost entirely staffed by Soviet UN personnel and always had a Soviet director.
: Authoritarianism has been an almost timeless historical tradition in Russia during its repeatedly turbulent and tragic history.
: Anti-Semitism at the United Nations was nothing short of appalling.
: Anti-Semitism is a tragic attitude that permeates so-called Western civilization.
: There are a number of reforms that are essential within the Secretariat, but one of the most important is to make available without delay to any member state direct access to all Secretariat records, current and past, and to any financial and budget documents.
...Sanjuan: My concern is that in the post-Cold War period the UN will become the focus of opposition to the only superpower left, and that Israel will find itself more than ever the only pariah UN member because of Israel's close collaboration with the U.S.
FP: When is the U.N. going to denounce Islamic suicide bombings?Sanjuan
: The present UN administration has mildly denounced Islamic suicide bombings while insisting that a clear distinction be made between terrorists and freedom fighters, and it never clarified whether the murderers on 9/11 were of one variety or the other.
FP: Mr. Sanjuan
, thank you for joining us today.
