United Nations kills 227,000

From WorldNetDaily:

The U.N. agency charged with monitoring seismic activity around the globe sent all of its 310 employees on vacation the week of the massive earthquake and tsunami in South Asia, preventing any possibility of warning to the 227,000 victims....

Even though there were hours between the time the computers at the agency recorded the massive Dec. 26 quake and the first tsunami, nobody saw the data in the U.N. agency that spends $105 million a year – about 19 percent provided by U.S. taxpayers. They were all permitted to go on holiday at once.

The man responsible for that staffing decision is Secretariat Wolfgang Hoffman, 69, a German, who will be leaving the post in August after what one insider at the agency call "nine years of abuse of power." During his tenure, marked by "mismanagement of monumental proportions," he has made about $3 million in salaries and benefits.

$105 million a year, and when it's needed, everyone was sent on vacation. What a waste. And don't expect Liberals to start whining about how many poor children that money could have fed, because Liberals worship the UN and see it as infallible.
