Fresh from the WTF file

Consider the following:
BEIRUT (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said on Monday he would appoint a secret envoy to work for the release of the two Israeli soldiers whose capture by Lebanon's Hizbollah group triggered a month-long war.
How exactly is it a "secret" when you announce it to the world?
"I will appoint a person to work secretly with the two sides ... I will not announce his name today or tomorrow," he said.
So his identity is the only secret? The United Nations, and Kofi Annan, need to worry less about "secret envoys" and more about doing their job.
