Or Americans in general. Rikyrah alerted me to this story so the hat tip goes to her. What can you say about an administration this lazy, incompetent and uncharitable toward its own citizens. In the Washington Post today:

Allies offered $854 million in cash and in oil that was to be sold for cash. But only $40 million has been used so far for disaster victims or reconstruction, according to U.S. officials and contractors. Most of the aid went uncollected, including $400 million worth of oil. Some offers were withdrawn or redirected to private groups such as the Red Cross. The rest has been delayed by red tape and bureaucratic limits on how it can be spent.

In addition, valuable supplies and services — such as cellphone systems, medicine and cruise ships — were delayed or declined because the government could not handle them. In some cases, supplies were wasted.

When will Congress open hearings on the Bush administration’s continued mishandling of Katrina relief? Why is the Fox News Debate such a high priority for the Congressional Black Caucus and this issue is not?
