    •  #2 Red Cross refused entry to NOLA (none)
      The reason why is simple. Just follow the reasoning backwards.

      If you need to force the people out when you have to offer food and water as a carrot to get them where you want them. You use hunger as the stick.

      If you don't care that people stay where they are then you go to them and give them the assistance they need.

      Therefore, there was something they wanted near where the refugees were. Afterall, if you're going to fix homes and infrastructure, the people can stay where they are until the construction crews get there.

      That something is the land they are on. And he is willing to starve them out or drive them out at gunpoint.

      Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

      •  You may be right, though I hope not. (none)
        I also hope someone asks the authorities. I want to hear their answer.

        It's sure to be reasoned, rational, logical and we just didn't think of it yet. </irony>

        It is beyond me that this can be on ARC's website and not be garnering some outrage other than here on dkos. Amy Goodman must have gotten wind of this, I've missed Democracy Now the last few days caught up in the actual (and novel) reporting on MSM.
