The Diplomad reports that 7 days in to the disaster in Aceh, the UN is taking credit for the humanitarian efforts of America and Australia. Obviously Jan Egeland is versed in the use of the royal “we.”
But not to worry ye fans of the UN, they’re actually doing something while people are dying all around them – building a fully self-contained camp for aid workers!
Note: If you caught a look at the video of the tsunami from Aceh here earlier this evening. you now know the USAID folks on the ground have their work cut out for them.
