UN refugee camp chief: We wasted millions. Why? Because – reveals whistleblower in a stunning admission – we were obsessed by photos of stars in our T-shirts

Shocking multi-million-pound waste and paralysing bureaucracy at the United Nations have been exposed by a former senior official from the organisation – which receives vast sums from the British taxpayer each year.

Killian Kleinschmidt was the manager of a sprawling camp for Syrian refugees in Zaatari, Jordan.

A veteran of 25 years with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Austrian aid expert has revealed how the organisation was dogged by infighting and an obsession with celebrities.

And he has exposed how senior aid bureaucrats lied about caring for thousands more children than they actually did.

You mean Brangelina isn’t an expert? I’s so disillusioned.

  • Bureaucrats doing what bureaucrats do.

    Wasting other people’s money.

    And asking for more.

    Nothing new to me here. Foreign aid and charity is infamous for not going to where it needs to go. A good example is the Live Aid schtick in the 1980s which was intended to help the Great Ethiopian Famine of the 1980s.

    In that one, it was alleged that a good portion of the money raised ended up in the pockets of the Derg commies and their enemies and in doing so, greatly extended the Ethiopian Civil War that ensued.

      How much ended up in Bob Geldof’s pockets, too?

        Ah yes, St. Bob, who’s one hit came from cashing in on a school shooting tragedy. What I like to call “vulture rock”. All class.

          Didn’t those beta male fuck faces do the same thing twenty years later with their song Jeremy

            Couldn’t tell you. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    More likely the NGO creatures were obsessed with hanging out with stars.

    But this is part of the liberal pie: empty-headed HollyWoodies need do-gooder projects for publicity and the NGOs want the media attention that stars bring.

  • I don’t know if I could be any disgusted with these people.

      It’s a challenge to be sure as it seems there’s no low low enough.

      All I know is that I’d be beyond fired if it was me in that job. Some people never have to face commuppance; only higher wages and more perks.

      • This is why withdrawing from the UN is necessary. It’s scandal after scandal after scandal.

        One world government is a farce and a war waiting to happen.

        • UCSPanther

          The Sundering of Yugoslavia writ large comes to mind as the outcome of any attempt at a one world government…

          • These guys are larger plan guys but not details guys, it seems.

          • UCSPanther

            Most of your pie-in-the-sky utopia chasers are poor on details.

          • They usually are.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Yes because reality is details and reality doesn’t fit with their world view.

          • Doesn’t it ever pain them that their plans never come to complete fruition?

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    Ang looks pretty clean in that pic. No chance she was sharing the living conditions of the “migrants”. Shit in a hole in the ground? I don’t think so.
