GENEVA - "The United Nations is failing to protect millions of people displaced by conflict in Sudan's Darfur region and violence in other hotspots around the world, a U.N. report said Friday.
The world body's approach to the problem of people who have fled their homes but not crossed any international borders "is still largely ad hoc and driven more by the personalities and convictions of individuals on the ground than by an institutional, systemwide agenda," the report said.
The U.N.'s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the Brookings Institution, a Washington-based think tank, compiled the 102-page study.
Dennis McNamara, head of OCHA's refugee division, said there is no single U.N. agency that deals with providing assistance for the 25 million internally displaced people around the world....

Pelican Post Commentary: The worthless U.N. is giving de facto approval to the displacement, rape and murder of these defenseless people by standing by and doing nothing of substance to help. As Secretary General, Kofi Annan has become a symbol of incompetence, nepotism, protectionism, corruption and total absence of ethics and leadership in that worthless cesspool---the United Nations. The list of unattended to atrocities, genocides, disasters and frauds under his watch is endless.
Annan is, now frequently, overtly and boldly speaking and acting against our own country in a manner that is not only subversive to our best interests but also supportive of terrorists---especially those engaged in the terrorist insurgency in Irac.
Under Annan's watch, reason and logic have been turned on their heads by the elevation of terrorist nations to seats on the UN Security Council and by placing terrorist sympathizers in high posts in the IAEA where they either appease or turn a blind eye to obvious nuclear proliferation abuses by terrorist supporting and exporting countries. What is it going to take---a neon sign by the front door of the UN announcing "We support terrorists and their jihad against America and the west" before Americans realize that the UN has become a subversive tool that is undermining our government even as they use our hospitality and money to accomplish it?" Enough already! It's time for the UN to go.
