I am watching Nightline tonight, and one of the guests is Marc Malloch Brown, the administrator for the United Nations Develoment Program. I only mention this because I am one of the first to bash the UN, in fact, if you check the archives here, I am one of the most opportunistic UN bashers in existence.
Having said that, I must admit that Mr. Brown was perhaps the most confidence inspiring UN official I have ever heard. I do not know his track record, but he answered Koppel’s question openly, honestly, with an obvious level of understanding and sophistication of someone who clearly understands his mandate and is very clearly in charge of things.
I trust this man with my money.
