      The Independent Commission on Kosovo established in 1999 under the joint
      chairmanship of Richard Goldstone (South Africa) and Carl Tham (Sweden),
      presented its report to Kofi Annan in New York on 23 October, and also at
      CEPS on 26 October. The report is available at
      http://www.kosovocommission.org/. It recommends a "conditional
      independence" for Kosovo, and also concludes that the NATO bombing of last
      year was illegal but legitimate

      INTERNET-BASED NEWS SERVICE SET UP IN KOSOVA. KosovaLive, a daily wire
      service-style report in English and Albanian, was launched recently. It
      offers news and political analysis from Prishtina, Kosova's capital, and
      the province's regions. The site address is:
      http://www.kosovalive.com and focuses on issues such as health, education,
      social welfare, and good governance. KosovaLive is
      directed at local news outlets, Albanians overseas, and people in Kosova.
      KosovaLive is an independent, non-profit organization that
      is supported with contributions from the Open Society Institute, Press Now,
      the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX),
      and the governments of Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. (International
      Journalists' Network, 23 October)

      The Lessons of Milosevic's Fall. The policy of containment against
      Yugoslavia has been vindicated, but it would be wrong to conclude that the
      fall of Yugoslavian dictator Slobodan Milosevic vindicates everything the
      United States and NATO did with respect to the Balkans. Kim Holmes, The
