Despite Aid, U.S. Flag Does Not Fly in Haiti
Hardly a day goes by when one does not read of the Obama administration's disrespect of the nation's flag and our actions throughout the world. A friend called this March 2010 USA Today article to my attention. Despite more than $179 million in humanitarian aid and a recent visit from Michelle Obama, apparently the U.S. flag does not fly there at our mission headquarters. It is totally inappropriate and a break with past efforts to be of assistance in foreign nations.
But what are we to expect of a man who found it difficult on several occasions to put his hand over his heart when the pledge of allegiance was spoken?
