image for U.N. Troops Sent To Wrong Place

(New York) - In a major logistical error 26,000 U.N. peacekeeping troops, instead of being deployed to the African region of Darfur, were sent to a local golf course in nearby Queens, New York.

The chief U.N. deployment officer, in admitting the error, said he was verbally told to send troops immediately to Darfur. "I thought they said 'par four' and the nearest par four is at a public golf course in the nearby NY borough of Queens."

Deployed to the public golf course in Queens, the 26,000 U.N. troops played 18 holes, declared the peacekeeping mission a success, and went home.
