  •  They held back volunteers for the parade! (4.00)
    A friend of mine called this morning from Kentucky. A bunch of his buddies from a rescue squad went down to New Orleans with boats and trucks, etc. to help in the search. The FEMA guys wouldn't let them in telling them to spend the night with the rest of the volunteers in this staging area. They were told that FEMA was letting them all go in "together" in the morning (just as Bush arrived!). They were really pissed that they had to hang around all night while people were dying. They have boats that could be out searching for people. But instead they were kept for the "parade"!
    •  Please say it aint so. (none)
      Maybe I'm still fucking naive, but to think that they could really be THAT depraved just boggles the mind.  Seriously, those are symptoms of pathological behavior.
    •  Write a diary, PLEASE.. (none)
      I'm recommending this diary on the basis of your comment.

      I, too, suspected they were holding back to make a bigger show for Bush's arrival -- you've heard it first hand.

      It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation.

    •  Do (none)
           you mean to tell me the White House withheld aid from dying babies, children, the elderly, and the handicapped, so Bush would have a "photo-op?"
          If this is true, this is criminal.
    •  PLEASE (none)
      Let this come out. PLEASE let them find a reporter and shout it loud.

      Please, please, please.

      •  Call Anderson Cooper NOW! (none)
        He's in an extremely no-bullshit mood.

        From the CNN TV Web site:

        Were you in the path of Hurricane Katrina? If you have a story to tell, call "Anderson Cooper 360" at 1-866-NY-AC360 or send it by email.

    •  Seconded. Please write a diary. (none)
      I feel sick. This makes me feel sick. I was eating as I read this and...This is unbelievable. Every time I think it can't be worse, I am wrong.
    •  I'd e-mail this (none)
      to every media outlet you can find.  Blast this information everywhere.  Start with CNN (use their Tips thing) and work your way even to local news.  Send it to Air America (especially Randi Rhodes).  GET THIS INFORMATION OUT THERE!
