A Taste of Things to Come?

Haaretz reports:-

Poorly-marked maps may have caused deaths of four UN troops

Incorrectly marked Israel Defense Forces maps may have caused the deaths of four officers serving in UN forces in Lebanon, a government report revealed on Thursday.

Is this the type of conclusions we can expect when the investigation committees start to sum up their findings?

Maps don't do anything. They are inanimate.

Mapmakers draw maps. Intelligence units provide raw data. Pilots take aerial photographs.


Not objects.

Who incorrectly drew and marked these maps?


Who provided the wrong information?

Who didn't check them?

Who didn't update them?

For if they can't start off on the right foot with something like this, what can we expect about emergency stores, lack of data, troops movements, commands, etc.?
