[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] Dear Colleagues: Just sent this comment to BBC on the reported death of Margaret Hassan to. Since they likely won't print it, I'm sending a copy to CASI for your comments and suggestions. If to the great loss to humankind, Margaret Hassan is indeed dead, a great deal of vital truth may have died with her. Who benefits? Are we not morally obligated to ask this question? Margaret Hassan in long interview with me in 2002 said that the one of the main reasons that the water system of Iraq had not been rehabilitated as of 2002 was that Iraq was not permitted by the US dominate UN to inspect water purification equipment before paying for it. Further almost all such shipments that got through despite US and UK blocks and holds were worthless due to substandard quality. Let us mourn this splendid humanitarian if she has indeed been killed by investigating her charges (particularly since the U.S. Senate's Coleman Committee is spinning an entirely different yarn).
