Colonial Police Officer Obit

From the Telegraph, April 5, 2005, "Sir Richard Catling"

A fascinating description of a British police official who was involved in Palestine, Malaya, Kenya, and Jordan. He even tried to punish a young Idi Amin. Lessons he learned: negotiating with insurgents can be productive, and it is possible to win hearts and minds. It also seems that former enemies can become future employers.
