Some weeks ago I wrote about $5 million worth of British food for Katrina victims whose distribution was stymied by bureaucrats at the FDA and the Department of Agriculture.
The story was generally ignored in the mainstream press although Cindy Sheehan couldn’t scratch herself without media analysis and TV camera crews following every finger-movement
The food was never used. It ended up being trucked around and then it was dropped off in an Arkansas warehouse.
It is still there.
These British Army military rations were requested as a donation for Hurricane victims by the US State Department.
The flight to the US cost British taxpayers almost $5 million dollars.
