Apathetic Nation: Crispy Dinners: International Aid for Katrina Goes up in Smoke

From UK's Mirror:

HUNDREDS of tons of British food aid shipped to America for starving Hurricane Katrina survivors is to be burned.

then...

The food, which cost British taxpayers millions, is sitting idle in a huge warehouse after the Food and Drug Agency recalled it when it had already left to be distributed.

and...

Food from Spain and Italy is also being held because it fails to meet US standards and has been judged unfit for human consumption.

And Israeli relief agencies are furious that thousands of gallons of pear juice are to be destroyed because it has been judged unfit.

How completely ascinine! People are hungry, starving, desperate for food and water, and Bush Bureaucracy has kept it from them. And intends to Burn it. Talk about keeping the have-nots with nothing! Gives new meaning to the term red tape.
