Bush "undermines" the U.N. again

This time by daring to offer aid to the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami without acting through the United Nations. I guess that kind of unilateralism is bad too. Check out what Clare Short said:

"Only really the UN can do that job....It is the only body that has the moral authority."

"Moral authority," huh? Has Ms. Short been reading the papers? One wonders.

Maybe, just maybe, President Bush wanted to help those who need help directly, without further lining the pockets of Kojo Anan and a cadre of inept, sticky-fingered global bureaucrats.
