President Obama: The Entire World Stands with Haiti

For the third day in a row President Obama gave an update on U.S. assistance to Haiti and spoke about the need for more help.  The President told reporters the USS Carl Vinson had arrived carrying helicopters that could fly much needed food, water and medical supplies to parts of Port-au-Prince that were destroyed by the 7.0 earthquake that hit the poor country Tuesday evening.   President Obama said the U.S. is not alone in its efforts and cited some of the other nations that are assisting with relief efforts.  "At the airport, help continues to flow in, not just from the United States, but from Brazil, Mexico, Canada, France, Colombia and the Dominican Republic...the entire world stands with the government and the people of Haiti, for in Haiti's devastation, we all see the common humanity that we share."
