Government Lost Amid Haiti Rubble

As the death toll rises, one of Haiti's greatest victims happens to be its government, as officials continue to be completely overwhelmed in the aftermath of last week's catastrophic earthquake. Haiti's president is homeless and coordination has proved extremely difficult, as 300,000 families have been put out on the streets. One bright sign this weekend: The government's ability to produce and distribute food has expanded. "The biggest problem we face in Haiti is that we have no state," said a former government minister.
