"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Refusing Red Cross Help..Contradiction Scoreboard

UPDATE...UPDATE: I watched an interview with the President/CEO of the American Red Cross and she simply stated they weren't allowed into New Orleans, qualified it was because they would be in the way, and she couldn't understand fully how their aid would be in the way.
UPDATE: Apparently my blog below is accurate but the Red Cross is in agreement and countering their previous statements. A spokesperson for the Red Cross said they are attempting to get 10,000-15,000 people out of New Orleans by not providing anymore food or water to them. Is this considered humanitarian and why isn't the far-left screaming?
Original Statements:
The Red Cross confirmed that it had pre-positioned water, food, blankets and hygiene products for delivery to the Superdome and the Convention Center in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane, but were blocked from delivering those supplies by orders of the Louisiana state government, which did not want to attract people to the Superdome and/or Convention Center. xxx The Louisiana State Homeland Security Department had requested that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans following the hurricane. Their presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city.
  • What was the purpose of having evacuees stay at these places without any adequate preparation for basic needs: food, water, shower/bathroom facilities, medical?
  • If officials did not wish to attract people to the Superdome or Convention center why were these facilities opened up for that purpose?
  • What was the plan?
  • When do Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco take responsibility for their failure to ensure the safety of poor residence according to their own written plans?
  • During a crisis what person in their right mind refuse emergency relief?
