Hundreds of tons of British food aid shipped to America for starving Hurricane Katrina survivors is to be burned.Unbelievable.
US red tape is stopping it from reaching hungry evacuees.
Instead tons of the badly needed Nato ration packs, the same as those eaten by British troops in Iraq, has been condemned as unfit for human consumption.
Turns out that the British Government sent over 400,000 ration packs but the FDA at some point declared them unfit because of concerns over Mad Cow disease.
But had these rations not ended up in a warehouse in Arkansas, they'd be eaten by British Soldiers.
Can the Bush Administration screw things up any further?
More quotations from the article:
"Everyone is revolted by the chaotic shambles the US is making of this crisis. Guys from Unicef are walking around spitting blood.Can it get any worse?
"This is utter madness. People have worked their socks off to get food into the region.
"It is perfectly good Nato approved food of the type British servicemen have. Yet the FDA are saying that because there is a meat content and it has come from Britain it must be destroyed.
"If they are trying to argue there is a BSE reason then that is ludicrously out of date. There is more BSE in the States than there ever was in Britain and UK meat has been safe for years."
