(p.162) 20 The Kargil Report1

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

The Kargil Review Committee was set up on 24 July 1999 by the Cabinet to examine the causes that led to Pakistani incursions in Kargil. The report of the Committee laid the blame on systemic failure, and made it clear that the committee's intention was not to find out who went wrong. This was odd as any probe into what went wrong necessarily exposes individuals responsible for the lapses. The report went into details and areas that were not pertinent to the issue at hand. The report simply blames 'deficiencies in the system', blames Research and Analysis Wing, censures a brigadier and leaves the government happy.

Keywords:   Kargil Review Committee, Pakistani incursions, Kargil, systemic failure, Research and Analysis Wing
