U.S.: U.N. fiddled while Haiti burned

The U.N. Security Council called an emergency meeting on Sunday to approve a resolution authorizing a multinational force to restore order in Haiti after its president resigned, U.N. diplomats said.

An informal group of "Friends of Haiti," including the United States, France, Canada and Haiti's Caribbean neighbors, was meeting on Sunday to work on a draft United Nations resolution authorizing a multinational force to intervene in Haiti after an armed rebellion.

The Security Council was due to meet at 6 p.m., the United Nations announced.
If only the U.N. had heeded the request Caricom made this past Wednesday.
