what is was politically incorrect for Honore to state (and he didn’t) was that the UN is largely the problem in Haiti. Any murdering, raping and pillaging ‘machete wielding yoots’ in NOLA were dispatched forthwith to their maker under Honore, and aid proceeded relatively risk free - not so in Haiti where the UN will not authorize live fire and huddles at the airport like scared mice.
Honore should have recognized that the USAF was at the airport within hours and had flight control established in less than 12 under protection of Marines. The president of Haiti’s response to this was to demand a ‘landing tax’ on relief flights (according to a CNN reporter) and throw a hissy fit over ‘sovereignty’. The UN’s reaction was to throw a hissy fit over who was “officially in control”, both wasting precious hours on politics.
Care to provide a link backing that assertion?
