Macsmind - Flash - Help was at the Superdome, the State wouldn't let them in.

I was listening to Britt Hume's show on Fox just now (6:25pm EST) and he was interviewing Fox News reporter Major Garrett. During the interview Mr. Garrett revealed that during the height of the chaos at the Superdome, the Red Cross was ready to go in, but were denied access by Louisiana Department of Homeland Security.

The Red Cross was ready with Food and water and medical help waiting yet held up by the State because, quote, "They didn't want people coming back to the Dome, but wanted them to leave (sic)"

But this is huge.

By the way, FEMA does not have statuatory authority over the Red Cross, or the State Department of Homeland Security. So if this is true, it's going throw the "Blame FEMA" argument right out the window.

When I get the transcript I'll post it here.

UPDATE: All Headline News is now reporting the story as well. Still waiting for Fox to Post the story and/or transcript.

UPDATE 2: Confirmed on Hugh Hewitt's radio show.

UPDATE 3: More at Captains Quarters.

Thanks for the recognition from Lori at Polipundit, welcome readers, have a look around me place!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
