The world gave us only $125 million when we went begging after Katrina. $100 million came from the UAE. Now it is missing. This doesn't suprise me at all. Bush probably took it for he claimed they gave him the same exact sum, sperately, for the Bush "libraries." I smell a bribe.
Federal auditors laid out a scenario of omissions, missteps and bureaucratic nightmares that caused the loss of money and other donations sent from abroad to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The Government Accountability Office attributed the errors, which involved as many as eight government agencies, to the United States' lack of experience as a recipient of huge amounts of aid from others.
"Given that the U.S. government had never before received such substantial amounts of international disaster assistance, ad hoc procedures were developed to manage the acceptance and distribution of the cash and in-kind assistance," the GAO said in remarks prepared for delivery to a House committee Thursday.
"It is understandable that not all procedures would be in place at the outset."
The agency said $126 million in cash came in from 36 countries after the Aug. 29 hurricane devastated New Orleans and much of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
$100 million came from one source. This isn't mentioned in the article. Simultaneously, Bush secretly recieved this same amount for his family library which has only one book, "My Pet Goat." Well, Reagan took bribes but he waited until he was out of office. I suppose the shiekhs want to preserve the advantegeous bribes immediately so they pay up and demand repayment simultaneously.
Well, our country is run by traitors. Of course, the money to help the New Orleans victims will be charged to the Chinese and my grandchildren. Isn't that sweet? And like Bush's Stygian mother, Babs, giving money as charity only if it was spent on her son, Neil's, crummy school company which also got a huge sum from the UAE, too, by the way, well.
No wonder we are going bankrupt and the New Orleans victims are now forgotten. Arrest these clowns, arrest the Bush clan. Ship them to their favorite country, the UAE.
