MUST SEE: Blanco refused to allow Red Cross and FEMA to bring food and water to Stadium!!!
FOX News (Click here for MUST SEE Video) ^ | Brit Hume and Major Garrett

Posted on 09/07/2005 3:35:54 PM PDT by NickatNite2003

Just heard on FOX that Blanco refused to allow supplies to be brought to the stadium, "Because they wanted all those people to leave, and they didn't want to create a magnet to bring others there, by bringing in food and water!"""

Well... Major reported it was the state dept of homeland security, but they obviously answer to the Gov.

Any idea if/when/where a transcript might be available?

This heinous behavior of BalnkoJerko calls for her to face murder charges. If you're driving drunk and kill someone you get manslaughter charges. Stupidity combined with arrogance is hardly an"excuse".

Brit Hume and Major Garrett just did an excellent job of laying out the elements of the lack of aid to poor Blacks in NOLA. Too bad no one outside of the few conservatives who watched this program.

The "Bush did it" mantra will drown out any voice of reason. I do however have hope that the majority of Americans will continue to recognize the MSM for what it is.

Now she has stopped the evacuation of the remaining. SHE wants the water tested so SHE can make the decision. I am convinced the feds should tell the citizens of LA to FO and bail out. Let the people own there live with what they voted for.

They can die for all I care.

Most of the residents of NO, at least the ones that count are in her front and back yard in Baton Rouge.

They will get her.

Actually, I have heard similar things several times already, including here at FR, and from some of the TV journalists, to the effect that ambulances, national guard, and rescue supplies were piling up outside of town for several days awaiting the governor's order to go in, an order she withheld because conditions inside the city were not safe enough to risk putting people in there.

That is a decision that may or may not have been wise, but which if she were honest she would have stood behind. Instead she quietly held the rescuers back while blaming Bush for what she herself had ordered.

It was only the arrival of General Honore and his effectively taking over the operation that finally broke the logjam.

Yes they did. If anyone finds a transcript or article by Major Garrett detailing what they just discussed, please ping me. I'll do the same if I find anything. (Just did a search on Fox News' site, but couldn't find anything.)

Have faith... the Dems are now going to try to delay hearings, once they realize that they'll be the ones who will be charged with dereliction of duty.

It's a lose/lose for the Dems. When the truth comes out, they'll be blamed... if they try to cover up the truth, it'll be obvious.

All they have is volume on their side.

I just got a breaking news that 25-30 bodies have been found in a St. Bernard parish nursing home.

What kind of government in a state as vulnerable to hurricanes as Louisiana fails to evacuate nursing homes!!!

Hurricane Katrina: Why is the Red Cross not in New Orleans?
* Acess to New Orleans is controlled by the National Guard and local authorities and while we are in constant contact with them, we simply cannot enter New Orleans against their orders.

I think the most damning thing in Major Garrett's story: "As the mayor and other officials were saying that they didn't have any food or water at the Superdome or convention center, the Louisiana State Emergency Board, wasn't letting the supplies in."

But I didn't hear the whole thing.

National Guard = Blanco troops. Yes, I'm sure the state of Louisiana denied the Red Cross entry, and at the same time, loudly complianed "Where is the aid? Where is FEMA?"

Gallup's new poll shows only 13% of Americans blame Bush for any delays/screw-ups associated with search and rescue and delivering relief aid. That means the Valerie Plame issue didn't stick, Peace Mother Sheehan's rants and raves had no net affect, and attempting to blame the President for Mayor Nagin's and Governor Blanco's ineptness didn't work. The MSM lost another one, so the score stands at:

Bush= 3 MSM= 0

Yeah. This is where I'm getting to feel more like I did on 9/11 - angry and sad at the same time. Before I was just sad, but I am getting angier and angrier the more I ponder what Blanco and Nagin "did to those poor people."

I realize it was a hurricane, but one doesn't abandon the old and infirm in the face of a storm 2 days out.

WOW. It makes a total liar out of Parsih President Broussard and other Dem-wits who were blaming the Feds for the inaction.

It also makes total sense now.
The failure to call the Nat Guard and the failure to keep the superdome situation in order.

The name of the Louisiana Homeland Security Director is Terry Ebberts. He did absolutely NOTHING to prepare for this disaster, and stood around afterwards, wiping the blood from his hands as he said about the federal response: "It's a national disgrace."

Anybody seen Ebberts? I don't even know what he looks like.
