Chelsea Clinton email Dad, Mom on Haitian relief incompetence

Chelsea Clinton in an email to her mother and father explained some of the problems see has been able to observe regarding the Haitian relief efforts.

Recently, on September 1, the U.S State Department has released an email from Chelsea Clinton, addressed to her "Dad" and "Mom". In the email sent, sometime in 2010 after Chelsea's four days visit to Haiti, she did warn her parents that the United Nation's handling of international relief efforts in Haiti excepting UNICEF was a disaster; an immediate change in the organization, management, accountability and delivery paradigm on the ground is needed. Otherwise, we have to confront with the deaths of thousands of children of diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and other water-related diseases in the near future. Her criticisms were mainly focused on the efforts of the UN and international NGOs. She had described the UN people as "frequently out of touch," "anachronistic at best and arrogant and incompetent at worst," The story does not end here....

During the period when Hillary Clinton was with the State Department as Secretary of State between January 21, 2009 to February 1, 2013, the USAID had disbursed $3.6 billion for Haitian "earthquake relief". At the same time, her husband, former US president Bill Clinton, was collecting money on behalf of Haiti to his own private foundation from foreign governments. When Hillary Clinton resigned from the State Department, her brother Tony Rodham, out of the blue, luckily got an appointment as a director of a company which had managed to acquire a lucrative gold mining contract in Haiti. Haitian lawyer and human rights activist, Ezili Dantò has accused Bill Clinton responsible for $6 billion collected on account of Haitian relief fund. Dantò has claimed that only 1% of this amount was made available to the Haitian government.
