Summary "... a year-long Turning Point investigation that uncovered and documented the activities of an American war profiteer operating in Bosnia. (The) investigation focussed on Lynne Robustelli, the president of a California-based charity, who claimed she could evacuate desperate residents trapped in the war zone. By zeroing in on the weaknesses of the United Nations, Robustelli exploited the organization to her own advantage -- and profit."
