CNN reports on the results of the attacks on the UN: U.N. suspends aid work in Gaza

GAZA CITY, Gaza (CNN) — Israeli forces fired on a U.N. aid convoy Thursday in Gaza, killing two aid workers, during a three-hour truce that Israel set up to allow humanitarian aid to reach civilians, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said.

“Since the conflict began 13 days ago, four UNRWA local staff have been killed,” according to a statement from Ban’s representative referring to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency.

“The U.N. is in close touch with the Israeli authorities about a full investigation of this and other incidents, and about the need for urgent measures to avoid them in the future.”

As a result of Thursday’s fatal attack on its aid convoy, the U.N. relief agency will suspend activities in Gaza until the Israeli military can guarantee the safety of its staff, said the agency’s chief spokesman, Chris Gunness, in Jerusalem.

The humanitarian agency provides food and relief supplies to about 80 percent of Gaza’s 1.5 million people. At least 50 trucks carrying humanitarian goods and diesel fuel crossed into Gaza on Thursday.

I Told You So

I warned people that Obama was not liberal or progressive, that he was, at best, a moderate Rockefeller Republican, but they bought into the cult of personality.

They voted for him, so now they get to fight him over his attacks on Social Security and the stupid tax cuts. They get to fight him over his wimpy, ineffective stimulus package.

The Obama-Biden team stand barely above Joe LIEberman in their voting records, but people ran around claiming these were the people that were going to undo the damage of conservative policies.

Don’t be surprised if his court appointees don’t exactly add a weight to the left side of the bench.

I didn’t vote for him, so he’s not my problem to solve, because the damage he causes is on the heads of those who did.
