Predictable Irony

Today's Washington Times has a story by reporter Betsy Pisik which concerns a United Nations program based in Greece whose mission is to train public administrators in Mediterranean countries.

The Thessaloniki Center for Public Service Professionalism has been audited by the U.N. Office for Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) and her article contains the following two paragraphs; "The center was conceived to train public servants in the Mediterranean region and former Soviet states to be more transparent, accountable and effective in running their respective government bureaucracies.

The OIOS audit paints the center as an expensive project, plagued by staffing troubles, spotty record-keeping and the inability to complete projects."
