State of Louisiana Prevented Red Cross from Providing Relief to New Orleans Superdome

This is an unbelievable story being reported by Major Garrett of FOX News. The following is from Hugh Hewitt’s website:

“The Fox News Channel’s Major Garrett was just on my show extending the story he had just reported on Brit Hume’s show: The Red Cross is confirming to Garrett that it had prepositioned water, food, blankets and hygiene products for delivery to the Superdome and the Convention Center in the immediate aftermath of the hurricane, but were blocked from delivering those supplies by orders of the Louisiana state government, which did not want to attract people to the Superdome and/or Convention Center. Garrett has no paper trail yet, but will follow up on his verbal confirmation from sources at the highest levels of the Red Cross.”

You can read a transcript of Hugh Hewitt’s interview with Major Garrett here. According to Garrett, the Red Cross is unequivocally confirming his story.

If this story is accurate, it changes the entire political calculus. It would show that the tragic aftermath of Katrina was not due to a failure of federal authorities, but to a failure of authorities in the State of Louisiana.

  1. Its Major Garrett, Jim.

    Didn’t most of us realize early on that casting blame is one of the trademarks of this world system. Casting blame before the facts are known is total stupidity though.
    Good post Denny, I watched this on fox when it aired.
