The United Nations - Can It Still Do the Job? An On-Going Series.

Jack leaves for United Nations Headqaurters tomorrow. The UN is the cernterpoint of the non-proliferation treaty with the Iranians, the humanitarian crisis in Darfur and is working in more than 14 other countries around the world.

Today, as part of our on-going series involving the UN, Jack will speak with Linda Fasulo, a UN correspondent for NBC, MSNBC and longtime contributor to National Public Radio. We will also discuss Linda's book, An Insider's Guide to the UN.

We figured the best preparation for Jack's visit is to establish a primer for the UN. Thus, today, we will look at history and organization as well as challenges. We will focus in on the Security Council, the General Assembly, the IAEA and other organizations of high profile at the UN Headquarters.
