"...where are the billions in foreign aid money going?
Of the U.S. money, 40 cents on every dollar goes to the U.S. military, according to sources gathered from USAID and the U.N. and compiled by the Associated Press.[iii] Less than one cent goes to the Haitian government. U.S. government contracts, paid for by citizen's tax dollars, are being given out to private U.S. corporations for post-earthquake work including damage assessments, security guards, military 'mission support,' shipping of supplies, clean-up, construction, long-term planning, 'monitoring food security,' and much more."
