Today UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan publicly released his report on Special Representative for Iraq Sergio de Mello's activities, per the terms of Security Council resolution 1483. The report is 23 pages long and written in accessible, non-technical language. Its contents go well beyond reporting de Mello's/the UN's activities, and includes numerous useful recommendations, and details regarding the situation on the ground in Iraq. The report is worth a complete and careful read. Below are the report sections.
