The UN should investigate Falluja, but not like Jenin

Your otherwise to-the-point leader (Losing Falluja, April 15) states: “The United Nations should investigate the deadly events in Falluja, as it did in Jenin.” Please recall that the UN never actually investigated Jenin because Israel refused to allow investigators in. The UN secretary general eventually issued a report based on second-hand sources. Once again Israel got away with war crimes.
