    The pic at sea of Hurricane Isabel is a fake. Probably by the guy who did the fake blackout pic of the eastern US in August.

    As a former Infantry Captatin in the US Army, I am confident that we, the US have the necessary resourses and resolve to meet ANY challenge, natural or manmade; the variable is command and controll.

    Who is in charge, and what are their orders?

    Who could not see the images of disaster victims on TV at the N.O. convention Center, and say within 6 or 7 hours WHERE IS THE RELIEf?
    WHERE IS THE AID/ WHERE IS THE ARMY??? WHO IS IN CHARGE,
    AND WHY IS THE RESPONSE SO SLOW IN COMING?

    HEADS SHOULD ROLL IN THE AFTERMATH OF THIS GIGANTIC FAILURE
    OF LEADERSHIP!!!

    Come on… this is the USA; we bring relief to disasters AROUND THE WORLD!! Agian, lack of effective LEADERSHIP is the cause of this unacceptable lack of immediate relief in the wake of this disaster!!

    GET RID OF THE DEAD WOOD, and appoint others with the skills and determination to meet the challenges of the REAL WORLD requirements of disaster relief!!!

    every major US company should provide employment and relocation assistance and the US government should provide guidelines and tax relief for those who participate.
