Ar=ttempted speedy deletion--speedy removed as bad faith nomination, in view of the prior AfD 3 months ago.. Nothing to prevent nomination for a second AfD. DGG 08:38, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

This article is undersourced for the claims it makes.

  • The article name is POV in that it removes any question as to if the UN was spied on.
  • The comment 'The UN was watched' is made by an unlinked person who is not mentioned anywhere else in the article. His context to the subject is unclear.
  • The only source about the memo seems to counter the entire article. All other statements about the memo are unsourced
  • The final references about bugs but do not note any context as to what or who was bugged. Where the bugs active? Where the bugs placed by anyone else? Who at the UN knew about the bugs and when? --Lemmey (talk) 22:50, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Spying by the United Nations[edit]

In connection with the UNSMIS mission in Syria, anonymous accusations have been promulgated by several media against this organization, including its leader in particular, Norwegian Major General Robert Mood, of spying against the Syrian regular military. See Talk:Robert Mood#Allegations of spying in Syria for a detailed enumeration of the known sources and repeaters of this claim. And although the exact individual who has presented the accusation is unknown, it is said to be a Jordanian UN observer, which narrows considerably the target set. Depending on the evaluation of these sources vis-à-vis WP:RS and possibly any developments of this matter, some mention of this might be appropriate in the present article. If more such cases should arise as time goes a change of title may even be warranted. __meco (talk) 12:25, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 22:49, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
