My Question to Ted Turner

I'm here at the Ted Turner/UN event at Reuters. I just asked Ted Turner what he thinks of Yon Ayisyen's comments that I outlined in my last post. Namely, that it is not always clear how effective the UN Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) is in peace-keeping and even in effective elections observing. I asked him since he gave them so much money, whether he'd heard about that?

He thought that generally his impression was that they were effective. He said that he thought the US itself should be doing more about Haiti because it is in the US' backyard. He said that he thought that the resources used towards Afghanistan (or was it Irak?) would have been better used in Haiti.
