#2 so the United Nations could return to Iraq without having to rely on the U.S.-led coalition

What does that mean? Is that a weak attempt to blame the US? The report said it was the UN's own fault for failing to comply with their own security regulations. Weak, as ususal.

#3 Not sure it can be placed squarely on de Mello. Seems like his office was deliberately targeted. And with 500-plus (non-UN estimate) UN people in Baghdad, that's a lot of suspects in the blame-pool.
