"A U.S. official told the charity no aid flights would be allowed until the area was safe but the U.N. has already declared Arbil a "safe and
secure" area, the charity said."
Well, I'd think that the US military in Iraq is probably better able to determine if a site is "safe" or not, far better than the UN in
NYC....don't you think?
I'm sure they'd love to have it land...but at the same time, losing that plane to enemy fire, or friendly fire, would certainly be an even worse
public relations nightmare, as well as more deaths, loss of supplies, etc. So, can you blame them for wanting to be sure on this?
