Bush Swats Kofi Annan with Rolled Newspaper
by Scott Ott

(2004-11-05) -- U.S. President George Bush, during a surprise visit to United Nations headquarters today, rolled up a copy of The New York Times and swatted U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan across the nose with it.

Mr. Bush said nothing after the swatting, but simply pointed the rolled paper toward Mr. Annan's office, and the U.N. leader returned to his desk.

The diplomatic gesture by Mr. Bush was seen as a response to Mr. Annan's recent statement that a joint Iraqi-U.S. effort to liberate Fallujah from terrorists might jeopardize elections scheduled for January.
