You're wrong, and so is Willytex.

First, note that I was not addressing Willytex but
Cliff, so Willytex's response is a non sequitur.
I wasn't asking Willytex anything at all, nor had
he previously asked me what he claims.

Actually I quoted the Red Cross's own Web site to
that effect.

Note that Willytex claimed I had been "withholding"
that information, when in fact I was the first to
post it to this forum.

"Of course" I was?

Hint: I'd rethink that if I were you.  You don't
want to embarrass yourself again, do you?

Oh, never mind, you're so clueless it doesn't
matter.  Here's my original post (75011):

>From the Hurricane Katrina section of the Disaster FAQs
on the Red Cross's Web site:

"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.

"The state Homeland Security Department had requested--and continues
to request--that the American Red Cross not come back into New
Orleans following the hurricane. Our presence would keep people from
evacuating and encourage others to come into the city."

The Red Cross could have gotten food and water
and medical and other supplies into New Orleans
*long* before yesterday, when the first supplies
were sent in under the aegis of the National
Guard and the feds.

Some people have died and many thousands more have
endured incredible suffering, in other words, in
order to force them to evacuate.

The mind boggles.
