Whatever Happened to Hope for Haiti?

Hosted by

On January 10, a massive 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti. Six months later, relief efforts are moving very slowly. Has Haiti's government been an obstacle in the flow of aid? Why are donors taking so long to actually provide the funds they promised? How are people on the ground being helped and what do they need? Also, BP delays testing a new containment cap and drilling a relief well, and it just gets curiouser and curiouser – the case  of Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri, who says he was kidnapped by the CIA. Sara Terry sits in for vacationing Warren Olney.
