It has failed to address the most dangerous threats facing the civilized world, refused to condemn terrorist acts, encouraged America’s enemies, and supported some of the world’s most oppressive governments, all while wasting billions of dollars.
As veteran reporter Eric Shawn of Fox News Channel points out, the U.N.’s iconic skyscraper is where our so-called allies all too often undermine the United States and our vital interests.

Eric Shawn is a senior correspondent and anchor for Fox News Channel. He has covered stories everywhere from the Persian Gulf to Somalia to the White House to the O. J. Simpson trial. This is his first book.
