Problems with food distribution in Haiti

[cnn-video url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2010/07/15/nr.haiti.klein.intv.cnn"%5D

Thousands still do not have enough food, water and other emergency relief six months after the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
One challenge: Getting the food and supplies where they’re needed most.
Eric Klein, cofounder of Can-Do.org, spoke with Tony about food distribution in Port-au Prince, Haiti.

    Perhaps Haiti should concentrate on developing it's agricultural base. get farms up and running to support it's population. The industry would have wide ranging employment effects as well. Even security teams for the farm products would flourish.

    The work of Pastor Frantzcy Cadet is too much sacrifice and people have done enough. Frankly, we need work on our problems first because the situation of Haiti is corruption and problem has never being worked out seriously. Haiti has to create self consciousness from the first state for its own people but the corruption does not let anything being done. Dr. Gupta calls it stupid death and I call it corruption. The same happens in so many countries on the Caribbean and even Puerto Rico.

    The choice is not between defending your character or "falling on your sword"tjo defend your govenment supervisors. The freedom to defend yourself is part of the "American Character"

    This is just another example of how our systems designed to address US Disaster Response, is a miserable failure. Unfortunately, we find ourselves viewed worldwide as feeble and weak, a joke! We have earned this perception. We are lacking real leadership at the top of the agencies responsible for overseeing the efficiency of these functions. Personally, I believe that there is too much time spent by these leaders, indulgeing in the politics of Washington and not enough time continually working to bring their charges up to speed and focus on better coordination with other relavent agencies. There is no reason at all that it takes us so many days and weeks to respond to emergencies such as Katrena and Haiti. Our Military Generals and Civilian Leaders in charge of these functions have become slow reactors to emergencies because they are too busy playing the game of highly paid Power Brokers to get anything done in a timely manner. When I was in the Military, we had Disaster Response plans that we constantly rehearsed that would easily put our current to shame. We were paid a lot less and maybe this is what the curren problem is.

    I think we have just observed one of the greatest race-healing moments of our time. We all are guillty of judgemental responses that serve to public opinon. We should all learn from this great American. Ms Sherrod should not only be given back her job. Ms Sherrod should be given the Medal of Freedom. Ms Sherrod had the courage to set aside her hate. Ms Sherrod's father's murder was enough for her to be a racist for the rest of her life. Ms Sherrod used this terrible crime to become a person who put her pain aside and helped both black and white. This country owers her a debt of gratitude instead of a pink slip.

    All the coverage we're seeing is that this unfortunate woman lost her job over a doctored video and that the powers that be are reconsidering her termination. What's not being stressed is who it was that spliced up a longer video to make Ms Sherrod sound racist. Why is there scant coverage of the fact that the mischief was committed by Fox and the Tea Party?
