"The consciousness of good intentions disdains ambiguity. I shall not, however, multiply professions on this head. My motives must remain in the depository of my own breast. My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all. They shall at least be offered in a spirit which will not disgrace the cause of truth."
-'Publius' The Federalist No. 1
"At the very moment that Ray Nagin, the Mayor of New Orleans, was screaming where's the food, where's the water, it was over the overpass [nearby], and state officials were saying you can't come in," Garrett said.
It woud seem as though there was an inexplicable lack of communication between the city and state officials when such communication desperately needed.
"The Louisiana Department of Homeland Security blocked a vanguard of Red Cross trucks filled with water, food, blankets and hygiene items from bringing relief to the thousands of hungry and thirsty evacuees stranded in the New Orleans Superdome after Hurricane Katrina struck...."
What is the reasoning behind such actions, and could there be a plausible explanation?
"Garrett told nationally syndicated talk host Hugh Hewitt that according to the Red Cross, the delivery was blocked immediately after the storm passed Monday. The Louisiana governor's office of Homeland Security explained to the Red Cross that they didn't want the relief supplies, because they wanted the evacuees to leave, according to Garrett."
Dastardly deeds....are our leaders justified in playing such trivial games with human life? Do they have the moral authority to deny substinence to live to encourage those to leave a city? Then, to self-righteously lash out at those trying to help for not helping. What sheer hypocrisy, and what transparent foolishness. Yet, those on the left want to lay all of the injustices that this natural disaster has brought about at the feet of President Bush.....is this not hypocritical, as well? Maybe, had the state officials, at the urging of President Bush, called for the evacuation when he pleaded with them, this tragedy could have been averted. But with such negligence, one can only speculate...
