I agree, but don’t you find it delicious that our lovely and loved president is pissing off everybody in the world trying to earn his unearned Nobel?

Let me get this straight. We’re doing the lion’s share of the heavy lifting and dwarfing these countries in donations (both national and personal) and we have to listen to the nation that you see when you look up “surrender” in the dictionary and the Sodom & Gomorrah of Latin America? STFU

Let’s turn in all over to France and the UN, I’m sure that they will do a much better job.

You must understand that that the French, Brazilians and UN bureaucrats must be on scene to skim the maximum amount for their own personal Swiss accounts. Be a little reasonable.

Agreed, especially after hearing them say ‘the white outsider’s are the problem’!

Pfft , out of there.

I would think flights in and out of this place should be scheduled and directed from a third place. The problem is there is only one runway and very little fuel to refuel. Having planes just showing up is ridiculous.

I wonder if this story will ever see the light of day in America-could reflect poorly upon his Omnipotence.

Port Au Prince airport is a VERY small airport and if we (the USA) are providing the bulk of the aid to Haiti, I see nothing wrong with giving our flights priority.

Somebody needs to be in charge and it looks like Haiti is utterly incapable of running things for the moment. If not us than who? Does Brazil want to run the show? How about France? Just who do these countries want to run the show. I’m so sick and tired about piss-ant countries criticizing the US.

Wow. That happened faster than I anticipated! I had predicted a FULL seven days before the power-grabs started.

I think it’s time for America’s “first international President” to show us how good he is at repairing all those international rifts brought about by the previous administration. Didn’t he once say something about healing relationships with our allies?

Time to man up, Zer0!

A local medical team was denied permission to land because Hillary Clinton was at the airport.

We know that President Bush chose not to land in Louisiana so as not to disrupt the rescue efforts.

The msm chose to demonize that decision, but God knows.

Obama is shutting out the rest of the world from horning in on HIS emergency. This is HIS 9/11 and he wants all the limelight.

The Haitian "government" handed over control of the airport to the US. The article makes it sound as if we just stiff-armed our way in and took over.

The Haitian government, paralysed by the destruction of the presidential palace and ministries, signed a memorandum of understanding formally transferring control of Toussaint L'Ouverture airport to the US. Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, flew in on Saturday and met Préval near the airport. "We will be here today, tomorrow and for the time ahead," she said.

"Brazil and France lodged an official ­protest with Washington after US military aircraft were given priority at Port-au-Prince's congested airport, forcing many non-US flights to divert to the Dominican Republic. "

What you resist, persists.

Bring all of our troops and planes back home, step aside and let the french and brazilians have it...they want the glory, then let them do the heavy lifting.

We don't need to keep pouring out our soul to the world, only to have these two-bit countries and the UN trounce on it.

It's utterly amazing that we foot the lions share cost for the UN...even provide them a place to meet...and we're the first to get thrown under the bus by them everytime.

The current pres_ent should look into charging all member countries some RENT money for that fine building...maybe if he did he could knock a couple of bucks off the taxes of our own citizens for a change.

What a useless organization....

. UNecessary

Yes, well I'm sure that they had a difficult time delivering the 2 boxes of "Cream of Wheat" and the "Zagnut" bar into the hands of the rescue forces (read: UNITED STATES) but it's best to reserve the airport for the people actually interested in helping.

Fine. let the French lead this, we help dig the Haitians out, get them medical, food, water, then leave. Let the rest of the world take care and pay for this.

If not— just scream Monroe Doctrine over and over, whilst placing fingers firmly in ears. Neener, we are king of the hill!

This bs is getting to be too much. Sounds like a bunch of mamas stinkin’ babies, pitchin a fit as folks are out there dyin’!
