These people were going to die anyway

An article in the Sunday Times (UK) claims that medical staff in New Orleans hospitals had to kill terminally ill patients that they could not evacuate in time.

Would it be placing blame to think that if FEMA, et al, hadn't sat around twiddling their thumbs while waiting for the Coward in Chief to finish doing his important vacation fundraising, they might have been able to shovel enough National Guard troops into the city to be able to better preserve order and, just possible, stop the staff at these evacuated hospitals from having to kill their patients?
