UN's al-Qaida/Taliban List Outdated

The UN has allowed its list of al-Qaida and Taliban leaders to become outdated. This list has not been updated since 2003.
Several dozen important al-Qaida and Taliban figures have not been placed on a list of 490 people and businesses subject to a U.N. travel ban, arms embargo and assets freeze put in place after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, said Richard Barrett, coordinator of the monitoring team for the U.N.'s Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee.
This rather distressing information comes from an AP article, UN: al-Qaida, Taliban Sanctions Outdated, dated today. We continue to pay 22% of the UN's expenses. WHY?
