On May 18, Turkish diplomat Baki I`lkin sent the Interim Report of the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the United Nations Security Council. I`lkin’s cover letter sounded hopeful, but resigned. “I would appreciate it if the present letter, together with its enclosure, were brought to the attention of the members of the Council and issued as a document of the Council,” he wrote.
International media has yet to review or investigate this report despite the fact that what is left of the world’s “free” press has been consistently manipulated by special interests, including the US State Department. Without some digging on the part of journalists, I`lkin’s important report, along with the truth and incinerated Congolese children, might well become buried.
