Just got this from Les who is in New Orleans, so has seen US disaster relief at first hand, its called disaster relief because its a disaster.
ths is a repeat of what they dd to us in New orleans - or rather didn't do.
In NO the focus was on preventng "looting" and protectng private property.
Food and water , etc. were forcible prevented from rreaching us.
I cALLED fEMA hq IN dALLAS, tX AND THEY JUST MADE EXCUSES CLAIMNG THAT IT WAS TOO DANGEROUS TO go nto New orleans. was out on the streets everyday and did not see a single bit of vilence or dsorder, just people trying to help each other.
I told the Fema rep they could do airdrops but the rep had no response.
I mentioned that airdrops were done within 2 days after Hurrican Becky in the 60's. Agan just empty excuses.
This was on Wed morning following the levee breaks.
Us locals who were here HATE the Red Cross who clamed they could not come into the city because it was not safe.
One former boss from New Iberia told me he had ten truckloads of food and supplies ready to go n but that the National Guard at the highest levels refused to let him in.
Haiti is seeing the same type of non response.
This is criminal.
