46. I don't consider it sowing seeds of hate, OregonBlue. You have to remember that Greg Palast has
been digging into these systemic failures brought on by bureaucratic idiocy and political malintent for decades. He sees it up close and personal through the eyes of the victims, so he's much more aware of their plight and what "might" have been done to ease that plight if we didn't have to do everything through the seemingly slow-mo gummint/military bureaucracy.

I can't believe that FEMA does not have a huge stockpile of supplies of essentials that are air-lift ready at all times. If they do have that materiel available then it's reasonable to question why a quicker first response could not have been implemented for this horrible disaster. I fully understand why it takes so long to get a full-bore military-style relief effort underway.

Anyway, I'm sure there will be lots to debate when this situation begins to come under some semblance of control.
