34. So you think EVERYONE should be in charge of the airport? That would lead to utter disaster.
The U.S. took control of air traffic control because there was NO equipment working. They brought in their own equipment. Pilots had been landing on a wing and a prayer with no communications, just looking out the window and hoping no other flight was coming in on top of them. So someone had to take control and we were the first on the ground with equipment. I'm sorry if the French got their feelings hurt. It is a disaster and total chaos and if the French couldn't land because the runway was full, so be it.

People seem to be looking for any reason to criticize what's going on down there. This is NOT about politics, it's about trying to get in there an save lives. If people's feelings get hurt, tough shit. I know the people speak French and the French believe it's one of their colonies but for Christ's sake, get real. They need our people and yes, they need our troops. Things are gonna get uglier as time goes by and the Haitian people will not be safe without protection.

Just stop trying to blame someone. This is not Obama's fault. It's not America's fault. It's no ones fault. Can't we all just pull for the Haitian people and our people who are there trying to help.
