Obama seeks $2.8B in aid to Haiti


Wide-spread corruption continues in Haiti. In a CNN interview with a Doc from “Physicians without Borders”, it was revealed that  the agency which has been there for years “must pay rent” to be there, and stated she thought that all must. Apparently we are educating Haitian children. You read, you decide. All of this wasted money and corruption is really getting old.

President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $2.8 billion in aid for earthquake-wracked Haiti, jump-starting a global push to raise billions of dollars for the country’s reconstruction. Included in the bill is aid for education. Guess the education is in FL. 

South Florida school administrators worry that it may not be enough. Miami-Dade and Broward each enrolled more than 1,000 students at a cost of about $7 million.

“Federal entities need to recognize the burden on our school system,” said Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who expects to enroll 3,000 more Haitian children in the coming school year.

Haitian Corruption wide spread it is reported.

Haiti’s president has condemned “arrogant” US criticism of corruption in his government, and said the Haitian presidency should have final veto power over donor-funded reconstruction projects following January’s catastrophic earthquake.

President Rene Preval’s anger was directed at a US State Department Human Rights report on Haiti for 2009, released last week, which said “corruption remained widespread in all branches and at all levels of government”.

His reaction threatened to sour Haiti’s ties with its main relief partner as the Caribbean state’s government and foreign donors drafted a plan for the country’s recovery and long-term reconstruction following the devastating January 12 quake. http://tvnz.co.nz/world-news/haiti-condemns-us-over-corruption-claims-3420089
