A New and Noteworthy Blog

While B.D. is still getting crushed by the day job--why not check out the U.N. Dispatch instead? Good luck to Peter Daou as he gets this site launched. The U.N. is going through a 'time of troubles', of sorts, and much of the vitriol aimed at it is well merited of course. Still, however, Daou's site looks to provide coverage above and beyond the latest Kojo going-ons (see here for a potentially damning scoop, in case you missed it, written by my high school friend and talented journalist Desmond Butler a couple weeks back). A take on the U.N. beyond Congolese rape camps and UNSCAM is not a bad thing, all told. The U.N. does do some good work here and there--which people sometimes forget amidst all the hullaballoo and chest-thumping about the assorted meanies populating Turtle Bay.

P.S. Henry Farrell has a similar take.

Thanks for introducing the UN Dispatch. I took a look at it and like what I've seen to date. I also mentioned it in my blog, The Diplomatic Times Review.
