If you were here yesterday you’ll recall I spoke about the UN and a food shortage, and their response to it. In short, they begged for money and formed a comittee.

Well, now via Fox news, we’re hearing that despite their usual cries of poverty, they were sitting on at least $1.22 BUSD That’s over a Billion dollars, kids.

Just weeks before it announced the onset of a global food crisis and the urgent need for donors to provide at least $775 million in additional funding, the World Food Program was sitting on a cash and near-cash stockpile of more than $1.22 billion.

The startling figure is contained in the latest audited statements of the WFP, which were endorsed by the WFP’s executive director, Josette Sheeran, on March 31, just a month before Sheeran announced at an international aid conference on April 22 that a “silent tsunami” in rising food prices demanded the huge infusion of cash for the WFP’s latest budget.

This is why I ran the story in the first place, gang. When the UN starts screaming for money, I start wondering about ‘Oil For Food” and them still not having told us where all that money went.

Here again, the UN exposes itself as corrupted beyond repair. It’s time to call in an airstrike on Turtle Bay and start over.
