Is British aid for Katrina victims being destroyed?
According to the UK's Daily Mirror, British aid packages being sent to help the hungry refugees have been being destroyed by the order of the US Food and Drug Administration. Exactly what the issue is, I'm not sure. Something about the "mad cow" issue persists in the American mind. So rather than distributing this NATO-approved food to hurricane victims, we're burning it.
This is yet another PR disaster for the Bush administration. I'm sure they'd be worried, if they were the kind of administration that didn't care about offending its allies and wasting resources.
