A report of wrongdoing...

Back in 2005, the AU force in Darfur received a letter from a Sudanese Armed Forces officer. Team 2A was sent to investigate. The no-longer confidential report is available here. The amazing conclusion? Someone attacked the lorry and wounded some passengers. The recommendation? More should be done to ensure the safety of passengers. Ladies Home Detective Agency this was not. What is interesting is the bureaucracy of the AU mission. This little incident report seems to have required the signatures of 5 officers to sign the "investigation", and then 7 officers (colonels, no less) to sign off on the investigation report. Maybe it's part of that "sweat the small stuff" approach to problem-solving.
