UN peacekeeping: the bad and the ugly

This is absolutely horrendous: reports from the Congo on how UN peacekeepers and staff abused and raped refugees, required sexual favors in exchange for basic necessities and mistreated the people the UN lackeys were supposed to protect.

Oh yeah, some of this is caught on tape -- but considering that the link in the title is from AlertNet, not the NY Times, WaPo or CNN, you likely won't see the tapes (the viewable in primetime portions, that is) on the evening news. I'll take bets on that.
