  •  Fema in Washington's Response (TPM) (4.00)
    We were now desperate to find a contact on the ground at the New Orleans airport to help triage ambulatory medical patients into these planes.  FEMA in Washington was non responsive.  We spoke to the aide to one of the deputies at FEMA and was told they did not need or want our help since the hospital evacuation was going fine.  We looked at the reports from CNN about the conditions at the field hospital at the airport and discounted that opinion immediately.

    They did not need or want help?!!  Unbelievable.  What incompetence.

    More dangerous are the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.

      These are the same guys that didn't know that people were at the convention center and said that there was plenty of food at the Superdome...2 meals/day I think was Jherkoff said.
