Are you watching Bill O’Reilley?
He is calling it just right.
He said America has spent billions of dollars on Haiti since 1992, yet Haiti is worse off in today in 2010 than they were in 1992.
He is demanding to know where all those billions of your dollars went to.

Duh. It went into a bunch of dictators swiss bank accounts. Some of it went to buy Hummers for their henchmen. Some of it went to buy off the peasants with a pittance. Just like foreign aid to other dictatorships. None of it went into building the infrastructure of courts, land recordation, contract law etc necessary for a freer and more prosperous society.

Haiti would probably have done better without the aid.
