Another Test For The UN

The Detlev Mehlis report issued last night implicates top Syrian officials in the assassination of Rafik Hariri. Predictably, Syria flatly denied the accusations today while President Bush and Secretary of State Condi Rice called for the UN to convene a speedy investigation into the matter. So we're staring at another important pass/fail test of the UN's credibility.  We all know the UN's dismal report card over the years, so I won't be holding my breath. But it would be a nice surprise to see a budding sign of reform and accountability from Turtle Bay.
