    So who is surprised?
    After Oklahoma City, the first comments in the press were about 
    Islamists, but no 'international' inquiry.
    An in the Congo, after a history of UN and Western support for the 
    previous government, the new leaders have legitimate grounds to fear 
    that any UN investigations into missing/massacred refugees would end up 
    as a tool to attempt to impose external control over the new government.
    Likewise, I do not remember any 'international' inquiries into the 
    disappearances in Argentina during the 70s.
    Maybe 'international' inquiries are appropriate for 'developing' 
    nations, but not for Western nations.
