I noticed in the news that the US federal government has raided a warehouse in Haiti where all the US FEMA aide has been hidden away and note used in the reconstruction. The media blames the US for not doing enough but it was a Haitian corporation that was doing all the stealing...

Actually it was Puerto Rico but that's OK, the media's been too busy covering the 500th analysis of Trump's cholesterol numbers to cover a major corruption scandal.

Lol Bio. Even the far right rags barely covered that.

It was so minor that it was hard to find because of previous raids and such going back years.

Haiti's had a pretty tough run of things. Hell France forced Haiti to pay reparations for over 100 years to the tune of 22 billion dollars nowadays.

It's got worse. It seems that the workers of several charities operating in Haiti decided to abuse their power (they were the ones controlling where the food etc went) and set up what was to all intents and purposes a sexual enslavement ring with at least some pedophiles taking advantage.
Some high-profile charities are really getting it in the neck over this...

Maybe we could outsource the nation building to Great Britain??? Long term most (although not all) of the former British colonies are doing far better than the neighboring colonies run by the other European powers. 100 years of reparations???? It should have been the other way around.
