1. bureaucracy. even the "all mighty" wal-mart was turned away with three truckloads of water by fema. and walmart is listed as a supplier for fema. groups getting turned away because of paperwork, forms and pre-approved lists... bullshit.
2. nepotism/favoritism. when you get your friend a job even though they aren't qualified, this is what happens.
3. lack of leadership and preparedness all around. 9/11 could have been an even greater disaster but they had guiliani as a leader who was actually out doing
something. all of the immediate rescue/relief workers came from ny and worked from ny. the 9/11 reports all state that even then the fed gov were slow to react.
i could rant on and on but my head would explode and i am trying to cut down on that.
