The security priority given to the repression sometimes leads to swell the number of indirect victims. Similarly the states, do not have effective in preventing terrorist acts, sometimes have great difficulty in investigating their faults, failures and complacency. This is also true for international organizations like the United Nations, when several players are in charge of security and monitoring of the survey, with questions of attribution and responsibility that entails.
