What is the Whole Story About Bhopal?

I recently read a story in Wired about the accident at Bhopal:

A technical paper about the investigation of Bhopal (presented at The Institution of Chemical Engineers Conference On Preventing Major Chemical Accidents, London, England, May, 1988) said the following:

… dozens of opinions, purportedly based on investigations of the incident, were offered by various newspapers, magazines, television and radio commentators, authors, organizations, consultants, and politicians. Such accounts generally proved to be quite flawed and incomplete.

For the rest of the paper about the investigation of Bhopal, see:

When I read articles about Bhopal, I always wonder what evidence the story is based upon.
