*After the April issue of Commentary was printed, the editors prepared the following correction, which will appear in print in the May 2006 issue.
In "How Corrupt is the United Nations?" by Claudia Rosett [April], the Better World Fund, an arm of the United Nations Foundation, is said to have spent more than $110 million to lobby the U.S. Congress over the last eight years. As reported to the IRS, the figure of $110 million pertains to total expenditures on what the fund's website describes as "outreach, communications, and advocacy" intended to "support UN causes"; of this, the amount devoted to lobbying Congress is approximately $3 million. We regret the error.
