Peacekeeping: Cost Comparison of Actual UN and Hypothetical U.S. Operations in Haiti

The Government Accountability Office, at the request of Congress, conducts research on how the government spends taxpayer dollars. They just released an report comparing how much it would cost the U.S. versus the UN to run a peacekeeping mission in Haiti. The full 32-page report shows that it would cost the U.S. almost twice as much as the UN to run the current mission in Haiti. For a quick overview of the report, see the 1-page summary.
