UN Lebanon deaths 'tragic error' Full text: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5348364.stm And again it's the poor old humble map that gets blamed. Not the person who marked the map wrong. Not the person that wrongly identified the position as a Hezbollah position. Not the pilot who simultaneously illuminated the target whilst failing to observe the UN markings and then dropped the bomb. Not even the operations, intelligence and legal (?) officers who should have been reviewing the daily operations. Just a poor piece of paper with various coloured markings. How convenient! And if that excuse doesn't satisfy the movers and shakers in New York. Then Israel can call upon their old friend to assist in 'damage limitation'. I mean, haven't they simply lifted this excuse from the CIA? Shades of Chinese Embassy 1999 spring to mind... So. The bombing of the UN post was indeed deliberate. The problem was simply that the IDF didn't conduct a proper review of the target that they were attacking.
