    to my president?
    I am sure it is not just political enemies, but
    it may be a crime to deny to people their right to
    help other people and at the same time not to
    help to people in need.

    Thank you Al! Please run in 2008!!!

      It seems to me that it was a case of FEMA and the military people freaking out about a "non-miliarty" operation encroaching on their turf.  Gore's involvement was never disclosed.  If politics were involved at all, it was probably just that the federal authorities didn't want to have their slow response and incompetence highlighted by a private effort "beating" them to the patient evacuation...
