Administrations kicks off tour to "STRENGTHEN" the U.N.


Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, will argue in a major address Friday evening that the nation should “strengthen” — not “starve” — the world body.

    Hmmmm, it would be very interesting to know who and how many attend these. And are they part of a fund-raiser and for what/who?
