The United Nations has a remarkable record of failure that just keeps getting longer. The BBC reports today that the United Nations attempted its first high-altitude air-drop of humanitarian aid to the Syrian people and will keep trying until it decides to give up.

The U.N. did manage to land the aid packages within Syria’s borders, but of 21 pallets of supplies dropped, four suffered damage, 10 were unaccounted for, and seven were reported to have landed within “no-man’s land.”
