Please Go Away, Kofi

Kofi Annan was sent packing in India:

India rejected a request by United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan to visit tsunami-hit areas of the country, fearful such a trip would interfere with relief efforts, a newspaper said.
It was all done very politely, of course, but really ... how insignificant are the UN contributions to relief when one of the hardest hit countries is too busy to even meet with Annan at the scene?
