95. On the Red Cross website it sounds like FEMA told them to go away.
I don't think they were ever allowed in the city and according to Brian Williams article online at MSNBC, journalists including Williams and his crew are having the soldiers point weapons at them and they are not allowed in the Convention Center or much leeway in where they go - there are two good articles, one yesterday about some of the sinister things that are going on in NOLA. And Michael Moore is going down there with supplies, said to give SUPPLIES as soon as you can, and Moore said not to believe the spin going on that life is rosy, new school startings, etc. CLG and are even more blunt about the evacuees being treated like internees or prisoners of war in their own country. This is very, very sinister and the dirty deeds and genocide are ongoing. "
Very moving short video.

The essence of who we are is atstake. Genocide is evil and must be stopped." So declared New Jersey senator Jon Corzine when he introduced the Darfur Accountability Act last March. The evil in question was the widespread atrocities that are still under way in western Sudan, including the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians, along with rape, torture, kidnapping, pillaging, and the forced displacement of millions.

Senator Corzine echoed Secretary of State Colin Powell and President George W. Bush, who six months earlier had used the word "genocide" to characterize the death and destruction in Darfur. That was a historic moment, as the U.S. government for the first time labeled an ongoing crisis "genocide." But the real surprise was that this genocide finding did not trigger an urgent rescue operation. It wasn't supposed to work this way..... /

On another site, Bette Midlar said that Dufar is "a genocide we can do something about."
