Federal incompetence

Aaron Broussard, president of Jefferson Parish on Meet the Press:
We had Wal-mart deliver three trucks of water. Trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back, said we didn't need them... yesterday, FEMA comes in and cuts all our emergency communications lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in. He reconnects the line. He posts armed guards said no one is getting near these lines... [I]f American government would have responded like Wal-Mart has responded, we wouldn't be in this crisis.

Video here. Hat tip Lew Rockwell.
