The Continuing Saga of the TRC

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is still flailing around like an injured goat in a dry creek bed. Nothing has been done in months, the posters are fading in the sun, there's no money, and allegations are flying back and forth between international and local stakeholders. This convoluted, poorly sourced story tries to defend the Liberian TRC staff, blaming the TRC's failures on some highly-paid Ghanaian consultants, for what it's worth.

In any case, the time for blaming is done, and the time for acting swiftly is now. In a country with a $714.88 million UN Mission, one would think that someone could assemble a staff to make this thing work for a few months.
