After following the United Nations over the last decade, I'm usually not too surprised by their corruption and incompetence. But this story is exceptionally horrendous. According to Fox News, the UN spent $18 million in an effort to make Syrian First Lady Asma al-Assad appear to be a human rights reformer. It was part of an elaborate effort by the United Nations Development Program to demonstrate how the dictator's wife was a proponent of anti-poverty and social issues. As we all know now, nothing could have been further from the truth.
