Very moving Podcast Valhall, I share your "sadness," but must remark that there seems to be some veiled anger there as well. [As an aside, the sound
of your voice, along with it's tempo, etc., let me get a better feel for who you are. I already had a high regard for your opinions and comments on
many threads that have surfaced on ATS and it's good to get a better feel for the person behind them.]
Personally, I tend towards laying the blame for the shortcomings of the relief & rescue attempts on primarily two doorsteps: The head of FEMA and the
Governor of Louisiana. The head of FEMA because he had to know the potential for disaster that existed in New Orleans and yet did not mobilize his
resources to be ready to respond. The Governor of Louisiana for not having the National Guard primed and on standby for a quick response, when she
too knew, far better than most others, just how bad the situation could get and how rapidly it could get there.
