  •  that's what we need to demand then (none)
    how can this get set up? maybe the media can lead the charge for an independent investigation.

      at this point to investigate.  Someone very well respected.  They have Bolton in the UN to torpedo things there, but maybe some way to get it done.  

      We need, as the PEOPLE, to request an international body to begin immediate investigation.  Amnesty International?   International Red Cross?  But they already caved in to FEMA when they were told to stay away because "if you feed the poor people, they'll just stay there expecting more free food!"  (note-- entirely my own paraprase of the message).

      I don't think we can trust anybody in the government to do it....Democrats would have it thrown back in their face.  Got to come from outside, someone with a rep for evenhanded investigation.

        •  I thought his grandstanding was pathetic... (none)
          and he made an ass out of himself asking why blacks weren't on the leadership of the federal response team. WTF? What a fucking insult to waltz into the area when so many are trying to get out. He would have made more of an impact if he had stood with the Congressional Black Caucus and other black leaders who made a tremendous speech yesterday and are actually doing work behind the scenes to get things done. And after the schiavo thing, he can go to hell. And BTW, those condemning the Dem party, should make it clear that the CBC is leagues apart from the rest of that pathetic bunch.
