This Space for Rent

A little bit of outrage goes a long way

Yesterday, I commented on a claim that the USA was destroying food aid packages coming from the UK. Apparently the USDA (the Mirror reported, possibly inaccurately, that it was the FDA) decided, after a few days of what I can only imagine were fairly tense discussions with the British government, to clear the ration packages for domestic consumption.

So, if you're an American ally, it's still possible to chop through the mighty brainfart field that is now protecting the United States government from the danger of doing anything correctly. Perhaps we should outsource emergency management for hurricane Rita to the MoD?

After all, it probably doesn't break the posse comitatus act if they aren't American soldiers!
