  •  Exactly (none)
    Everyone who comes out of there has the same thing to say:

    We need help. Why isn't anyone here? Where is the help? It has been days and nobody has come to our aid - what is happening?

    And that is for exactly one reason - a failure of leadership at every level of government from the top down. There is no excuse for not having had a plan in motion because we KNEW THIS WAS COMING. We had DAYS to prepare people for what was going to happen - this storm sat motionless in the gulf for several days while it gained strength - and the people who should have been marshalling resources beforehand in order to respond as quickly as possible did nothing.

    A total failure of leadership.
