I agree with your opinion to highlight the quote above. It is obvious from the article that the UN is avoiding taking the blame for this serious outbreak. The UN should not be making statements that are not followed by their actions, for example ... stating that they are " committed to committed to do all that the organization can do to help the people of Haiti overcome the cholera epidemic" or "to provide immediate and practical assistance to those affected, and to put in place better infrastructure and services for all." If the outbreak is still at large, and the Haitians are no seeing this so-called "commitment" from the UN, then why is it being promised to them. The UN needs to step up and start creating solutions for a problem they began, starting with not denying their involvement in the outbreak.
The highlighted quote from an attorney involved in the lawsuits surrounding the Cholera outbreaks, makes evident the absurdity of a lack of ownership from the UN. While mostly everyone now agrees that the UN was the culprit of the cholera outbreak in Haiti, it seems bizarre that the UN has yet to own up to this. The UN should be pressured until they agree to take full responsibility of the cholera outbreak in Haiti. The UN should begin with a public apology to the nation of Haiti. Afterwards, it should fully support the victims of cholera and resources of Haiti to prevent more outbreaks.
